      Less than a five minute walk to the the Pier, Vegetable and Fish markets nearby. It's a minute from a large grocery store, many restaurants, mosques, etc. The ferries to Maafushi are also short walks, Breakfast was excellent. The room was tiny at 10 sq. m. however, had everything I needed. The staff were helpful.

      Tiny room in a tiny capital... but it had everything I needed.”

      The Novina is in an excellent location, being less than a five minute walk to the Northern end of Male', with the Pier, Vegetable and Fish markets nearby. It's a minute from a large grocery store, many restaurants, mosques, etc. The ferries to Villingili and Hulhumale are also short walks, so it's an excellent vantage point to visit the "local" islands. The pickup was slow as they waited until all arrivals filled the van, however, it was quite understandable from a logistics point of view. Breakfast was excellent. The room was tiny at 10 sq. m. however, had everything I needed. The staff were gracious and helpful. It was a great hotel, just overpriced by about 20% I'd say. Still, due to the location and services, it may well have been normal for the area. DRC

      We booked for a larger room knowing that the regular one is small, it’s clean, convenient, great staff services, and it’s close by the market which is compulsary for short business trip. Morning breakfast served well.. overall okay

      5 STAR Service”

      On top of the free airport transfer, the very friendly staffs who professionally dressed up to pick you from the airport, and to send you back to airport is an extra mile the hotel has done. They make sure that you are safe and do not wait for long. The hotel also communicated directly with the island resort that I am going the next day, so everything's planned well. Breakfast is good too. :)

      New hotel. It’s nice staying in a new hotel. Small room and bathroom. Good air conditioning. Comfortable bed, but seemed shorter than normal. Excellent hot water and water pressure. Best I’ve ever experienced. Breakfast is okay, acceptable. Free cappuccino is nice. Staff is very helpful and friendly. WiFi works, but seems to slow down on occasion. I think this applies to the whole country though, because I experienced the same behavior at other hotels.

      Pleasant stay in Male ”

      Stayed here during our few days in Male. They send someone to pick us up from the airport. All transfers are paid and organised. If you want to book excursions with them they organise that as well and you pay on departure. That was fantastic! A majority of the staff were great except one that caused us to miss our booked tour due to his lack of awareness and time management abilities - luckily we were able to make our way by catching the ferry to meet our group in Hulumale. That was quite frustrating! But all in all, the staff and facilities were great. The small room is quite small but worked fine for us. Breakfast facilities and restaurant was great, recommend it for sure :)

      Pleasant small budget hotel”

      The price are included transportation back and forth from male airport to the hotel. The person in charge will pick you up at the airport and bring you to ferry terminal to take ferry to hotel and you will transfer by taxi to hotel after reach male city ferry port. Everything is pleasant , however the day when we were transfer back to airport, the staff only call taxi to pick us up and send us to port, we have to pay usd1 per person to take the ferry back to airport which the staff did not mention to us we have to pay the ferry ourselves. This was very unpleasant as the taxi also didn't know what to do after send us to ferry port and the taxi driver couldn't speak English well. We just feel like getting dumped off from taxi to the port which I thought the staff will send us back to airport or even give us the ferry ticket.

      + the bed was good. Internet was good. the room and the bathroom were very clean. the breakfast was excellent. the price include everything (zero scam). they even paid for our taxi to the ferry terminal and from the airport. extremely helpful and smiling staff. - Malé is not a place where you want to stay for very long. The motorcycles are very dangerous. Maldivians just drive way too fast. (not the fault of the hotel obviously).

      Please don't believe the condition on Agoda of this hotel about transfer service (Airport-Hotel) and don't believe the email about picking up service from Airport to Hotel. It's not truth. No one take care you. I had to take the taxi to the hotel and when I arrived the hotel, receptionist didn't apologize. Breakfast was not good. The only good thing of this hotel is Cleanness.

      Kicked out from the hotel without refund”

      I was having two separate bookings for two nights and both were from Agoda, got a call from the hotel reception in the second day and they informed that they would not b able to accommodate my second booking as hotel is fully booked. So they asked me to check out and ask me to leave... when I asked for the refund, they asked me to deal with the Agoda, so I don’t why I was able to make the booking and why the stop sale was not done on time, I’m still communicating with Agoda to get my refund but that’s not easy too..... Very bad customer service from the hotel...
