                  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

                  clean, new, near ferry

                  We stayed 1 night in Male to discover the capital of Maldives and life of local there before spending most of the time in a resort. Kaani Lodge offered the cheapest price at that time. We were a couple but got a twins room with very small single beds. Toilet and room is very clean. We got the room in the highest floor, easy to access roof top for breakfast with toast, egg, sausage, jam, but a bit tired to climb up. Wifi only available in ground floor, can be catched at 1st floor too. It takes around 5mins walking from the ferry station and easy to access everywhere in Male. For the first time you should print the map to find out. Our Nokia Drive apps doesnt work there, and local doesnt know where it is. We took a cab with 1.5usd/trip to get there. In Male, taxi price is 1.5usd/trip to anywhere in the island :D

                  hotels in the maldives are generally not cheap. this hotel is one of the newest at the time i went (jan, 2012) and also one of the cheapest in male. it's less than a 5 minute walk from the jetty on the male side once you get into the city from the airport, so very convenient! one of the staff met me at the jetty and helped me take my bags to the hotel. the room was basic but quiet and clean and all things considered, i couldn't have asked for more. only downers were the ants in the room and the luke warm shower water, but not a big deal for one night. the best part was the friendly staff who prepared my breakfast for me to eat on the roof terrace while sunning myself. really nice guy!

                  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.

                  we had to spend one night in male before heading to our resort. this place was cheap, and served the purpose. it's not fancy, but good value for money, and it's very close to the airport ferry terminal. no complaints, except that the stairs are a killer. ask for a lower floor, if possible. also, the breakfast was nothing to write home about, and they serve it on this crappy little balcony on the top floor. otherwise, the rooms are pretty decent and the staff were nice enough. good for a quick, cheap stopover.

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 :)

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.

                  We arrived late at night in Male, and we don't check in to our resort until the next morning, so we stayed in Male for a night at 1/10 of the price we pay for the resort. Kaani is very easy to get to from the airport ferry pier. We booked the room for little money, so we didn't expect a lot. It was nice and clean enough. The breakfast wasn't bad either.

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~

                  A small budget hotel in Male, Maldives”

                  budget accommodation in Male, not far from the pier

                  Don't want to spend the extra bucks while transiting for the night in Male for our early morning flight back to our country. Kaani is within walking distance from the pier, but a bit hidden inside an alley. Check the map carefully! The lodge is a modest accommodation with not so modest budget, but the cheapest in its range. Breakfast is provided and it's fine. Wifi is free at lobby area. No elevator, but there are not so many floors up anyway. Breakfast on the roof top with a decent view of the city.

                  Comfortable stay at very reasonable prices. The market is also walkable. In fact Male is a small city. Not much distance. There is bargaining.

                  The hotel is very basic which is good enough for your stay at Male before heading out for the island resort. The people are very nice and helpful.

                  Good location, reasonable room rate for Male city

                  Kaani Lodge is a good alternative to the expensive Male airport hotel if you're only staying a short while.I was happy with the room rate that also included breakfast on the tiny roof top. It's in a quiet residential lane a few steps from the busy waterfront and good eating options. My room was on the first floor and, if I have anything negative to say, it was that the room was fairly noisy at night within the hotel as all sounds tended to echo - but that might not bother heavier sleepers. Mr Shaniful Islam, the manager, was particularly helpful and friendly.

                  Great breakfast, friendly staff & air-conditioned plus has water heater

                  1 night in Kaani lodge with basic amenities- air-conditioned, ceiling fan, fridge, water heater, television. The staff are friendly. Breakfast at the roof was good ; basic plus nice. However there's no safe to put your valuables and luckily our room was located on the first floor so we had to climb 1 stairs. There's no elevator so climbing with luggage is quite taxing. But there's staff to help u carry up :) Finding your way there is difficult for first timer. Can't differentiate between main road & side road. Building are close together.

                  good bargain hotel!”

                  close to airport ferry - great price

                  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..

                  location is good,easy to find in Male. the hotel is good not to charge a airport tranfer fee, cause there is airport ferry 24H, and it's cheap.
