        I shall return there”

        I'll start with what I liked; the room was neat, with a water heater in the shower, and the staff offered good service, and free continental breakfast. On the other hand, there was no decoder in the room so I couldn't watch TV conveniently and the rate was on the high side.

        the facility does not even qualify for even 1 star in my opinion. room is small,stuffy no even a small table n chair ..... got to eat breakfast (basic continental) on the bed. the cab driver dont even know where the hotel is..... no wonder ..... the entrance is somewhere along a dead lane.... however the staff is quite helpful for waiting for us at the junction lane due the cab got no access to the hotel.

        Positive: - Near the ferry terminal - Receptionist is accomodating - Value for money is excellent Negative: - hard to find since it is not along the main road - room is quite old and need some repairs - feels like you're in a box while inside the room - not so spacious

        Central location. ”

        Close to jetty. Room is run down. Shower didn't drain well. Dirty bedsheet. Stayed two nights but no room service to clean the room (maybe due to it's a lodge?). Towels were provided but not other toiletries. No kettle in room but staff was very friendly and helpful to provide us with hot water in a thermal. Very basic breakfast but fresh from the kitchen.

        Best choice for a one-night stay hotel”

        good location, clean and comfortable room, nice staff

        Very convenient location, take a ferry from the airport, and the hotel is 5 mins walk from the ferry, very easy to find. Comfortable, quite, clean room. Friendly staff and nice breakfast. It's the best choice to stay in Male for one night before going to the island. But it will be better if they can provide wifi in the room.

        rooftop view, only, maybe breakfast, luggage storage

        For one last good point to mention about, that they help to take care of your luggage to enjoy town walk , however, for this price is never worthwhile. Room is not so clean. Dust are around. We cant have an even warm shower since the machine has been broken down. Staff returned with – sorry, we will call technician tomorrow (yet we are leaving tomorrow). Broken wardrobe, old shabby blankets, in sum, we do not enjoy the stay in this place. Be fair, the most enjoyable moment is the breakfast time, while you can go up to the rooftop to have a city view. Don’t expect too much for your breakfast – toast, butter, jam, sausage, egg, juice, that’s all. Service is just basic, without efficiency. If we were there again for only staying a night, airport hotels will be a better choice. Comments are not as good as mentioned from the review.

        A night stay is ok”

        Easy access from the ferry

        Overall the room was just OK for a night stay before we depart to our resort for the next day. It was a walking distance from the ferry jetty. I lost my way but a kind local maldivian man took us to the lodge when we were supposed to turn in left to the Jade Bistro. Walk all the way straight from Jade Bistro (it is located in those back alley which was dark & looked dangerous to us if we were on a big city) but this kind man took us to the lodge so I felt safe a little. the Kaani Lodge is on your right. When we arrived, the kind staff at the receptionist gave us 2 bottles mineral water and ask us go to rest in our room while a staff brought our large luggage up to the first floor (thank God it's only 1st floor). You can access to the wifi on 1st floor. Morning breakfast was fair we have egg, sausage and toast with orange juice. Although the linen was slightly soiled, I just cover it with towel to avoid any scene as I was already tired. Overall, a night stay would be OK. Bring your own shampoo, body shampoo etc and towel (I used my own towel as I dare not use towels used by many people considering I'm from the healthcare industry where hygiene is still a concern for me. Overall it is OK

        Near airport, budget and at city

        Just average hotel, but there is nothing much to complain about as this just a transit hotel before go to island. Still need to improve on the cleanest, Wi-Fi only available in the lobby and is not so convenience. Only thing that i like for this hotel is the location as it just walking distance from boat ride.

        Near jetty, walking distance and clean

        We stayed at Kaani Lodge for 1 night before we can catch our sea-plane the next morning. This place is located near to the jetty and it would only take about 10 minutes by walking from the jetty. You have to turn right once you are out from the jetty. Walk along the beach and turn left at Jade Briston. Then just go straight and you can see Kaani Lodge on your right. Don't forget to bring your own towel, toothbrush & toothpaste. They provide breakfast as well-bread,egg,sausage and juice. We chose this hotel as it was the cheapest. For me, this hotel if fine since we just need a place for overnight. They have all the basic things u need.

        Location

        We arrived Male International Airport at 10pm, decided to overnight at Male city hotel before the transfer to island resort the next day morning. We took airport ferry to Male city, cost US$1 or Ruffiya 10 per person. It's easy to locate Kaani Lodge, just go straight along the sea until you see Jade Biston your left. Turn into the alley on your left and go straight. You'll see Maldives Islamic Bank on your left, go straight and you'll find Kaani Lodge in a narrow alley in front. Make sure to print the location map for direction. We were given a room on 4th floor, no elevator so walked all the way up. It's a very basic room with attached washroom. We had complimentary breakfast at the roof top. Simple breakfast which comes with toast, eggs, sausages, coffee/tea & fruit juice.

        Best customer service we experienced during our stay in Sri Lanka and the Maldives. We were very impressed with Imran, the hotel's cook/receptionist/bellboy. He gave us lots of wonderful tips and advice on shopping and sightseeing in Male/Maldives, and even went out of his way to "save" us from being conned by touts. The hotel room was neat and tidy, and we were allowed to leave our bags with the hotel for an extra day. Great experience~

        My stay was cool, arrived checked in and it was already late so got some recommendations as to where to eat. Staff are nice and helpful :) I had a good to E and would definitely return. Good location to airport jetty, just 5 mins walk and close to artificial beah where you can take a dip and watch planes land and depart! Stay here when ur in male, they have reasonable rates. After returning to male and waiting 5h for my flight I went there to see if I could drop my bags off and go shopping. No problem at all. They turned the aircon for me in the lobby let me use the wifi and store my bags. Sheriff especially is a great and friendly guy! Thank you :)

        so this is a simple hotel. but it also has a simple price - at under i had my own room, aircon, television with a couple of movie chanels, ensuite and breakfast. seriously - why wouldnt you stay? i met a person who didnt want the hassle of going to the mainland for the night as they were taking a boat the next morning so they stayed at the 'airport hotel' and paid close to.. its a no brainer for me. it was an easy right, left, left, right turn from the ferry and i was at the door in under 6 minutes. of course i did have to pay a whole dollar for the ferry..
