                Friendly and helpful staff, fair price with clean rooms.”

                The staff member Jinah at the airport escorted us with kindness and patience despite our arrival was late in night. His appropriate humour demonstrated in the conversations is also crucial to building a positive image towards the Somerset Hotel and the Maldives itself. This is highly appreciated, especially the case after a long haul flight where clear guidance and friendly assistance becomes comforting. The reception staff members are also helpful and patient, with detailed explanations in fluent English towards all necessary information regarding the room and various issues, and are also willing to teach Dhivehi and some local cultures. They are also serious in dealing with the transferring process to another hotel. We could not express more satisfaction. The room is clean and tidy and is huge in size. It is convenient to reach the lobby and thus other parts of Male, the capital of Maldives, due to the location of the Hotel. The tea made from the teabags provided without charge is also of adequate quality. However, the shower is not very considerate in design, as the water would spill out whatever way you do, this might be considered a point of improvement. Another surprising idea is the complimentary city tour in Male. The guide is also friendly and experienced, as well as international-minded. The price could considered very fair although not the cheapest choice, with the quality of service regarded. Overall this is a very enjoyable stay.

                Comfortable, Clean, Value for money

                Most people stay in Male for a stopover before heading to resorts. If you take a short look around the Male city, you would really appreciate a neat place to spend a night, and the Somerset hotel fits into that definition more than most other accommodations in Male. As it is a newly built place, it is neat and pleasant at the same time the staffs are friendly and caring. The breakfast was also plausible and I was able to head to my resort in good condition thanks to the Somerset. I would recommend this place to anyone who doesn't want to spend unnecessary money before the real agenda begins at the resort.

                Staff Are Amazing”

                The Somerset is everything you would expect from a nice, 4 star hotel. The breakfast is good, and they give generous menu options in addition to the buffet. My room was very clean. However, it is the staff that make the Somerset. From a service perspective, the service I received was much better than some of the service I've received at high end five star hotels. The staff are super friendly and always willing to solve your problems, if possible. I had several meetings in places I did not know in Male, and they helped me flag the cabs and make sure I got the right place even in high peak times. On the day of checkout, I had meetings until 4pm, and when I asked if they would hold my luggage, the manager asked about my flight home... because they were not full, he allowed me to keep my room until 6pm, so I could change, pack, and relax before heading to the airport. I will certainly return here again on my next trip to Male.

                The staff is the focal point of our stay. They are friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating.”

                The hotel is small, it’s not a b&b, or a guest house. it’s a proper hotel, with all its facilities, and it’s in the middle of the city. Getting there, don’t expect to have a beautiful view as you will be disappointed, bec Mali is a city and it’s small. As I said, the Hotel is located in the middle of it. However, the location is perfect, it’s only a 3 min walk to the jetty. The museum is also right across the hotel, there are shops for souvenirs ( very ridiculously expensive) around.the ferry to the airport is just 5 minutes away, but the hotel provides transport, so no worries. With the price we paid for 4 nights, it’s worth what we paid for because we were also given a big room. We are a party of three, 2 rooms with a dining table. What’s amazing to me too is that on the day of our departure, ( our flight leaves in the evening, around 10pm, check out is at 12pm), we were given a freshen up room when we came back to the hotel at 6pm. We checked out early, left our baggage in the front desk then went to a day trip to finulho, a club med island 40 mins away. The hotel provided us with a room for a few hours to freshen up till it was time to go to the airport. That’s service for me! To add on, the food was great! Breakfast was provided,western and local dish was in the buffet, room service menu was diverse , the taste is very good, and the price is reasonable. Our experience with this hotel is superb! I will recommend this to anyone who are in a budget, who doesn’t want to be stuck on an island or resort, ( which is expensive) , and sometimes if you pick a resort that you are disappointed with you’ll have no choice. Speedboats transfers are expensive too. Those who doesn’t want to stay in a guest house, and prefer a proper hotel, in a budget, and lastly, who like us went out to different islands for day trips, came back to the hotel and have a relaxing and good dinner in the room., this is the place for you.

                I booked through Agoda and discovered that The Somerset s a new boutique hotel in Male. Upon being greeted by a staff member at the airport I felt at home. And being treated as an important guest. The hotel staff to a person are courteous, helpful and most gracious. The room was very well appointed and comfortable. The bathroom toiletries are very nice. There is an excellent. buffet cum a la carte breakfast available. The dinner menus is extensive with the local fish dishes to be recommended. I happened to comment to the restaurant. Manager that I liked the background. music in the restaurant. He kindly have me a CD of the lovely local music. Now that I is well beyond the call of duty. WIFI is free, fast and available throughout the hotel. I highly recommend The Somerset

                Loved it - Male is a chaotic city but Somerset provided the calm stopover we needed. The bathroom is spotless, our room was the smallest of the lot but sufficed for what we needed and they have a Nespresso machine with free capsules!! Yea!! As we were leaving early for the seaplane, they ensured we had a takeout breakfast. Transfers to and from the airport were efficient. I can't recommend this hotel enough - you are in very good hands with them.

                Brand new sparkling hotel, good food, comfortable”

                Everything is new and clean. Great western,style semi,buffet. Free airport transfer (van and airport ferry incl).

                We emailed the hotel to arrange for someone to pick us up from the jetty 2 (where our other resort speedboat dropped us at). The reply was fast and we were greeted by an English,speaking staff not long after we arrived at the jetty. It was a good idea to be escorted because we may have got lost in the city trying to find the hotel (hidden in a small street 5 mins fr the jetty 2). The check in process was fast and smooth and we were shown our room. New, clean and tastefully furbished, we liked our room. The room has a small dining table and a Nescafe Nespresso machine. We were told coffee capsules and tea bags are free. 2 small mineral water bottles are also complimentary. There is an ipod dock radio as well. The toilet had sparkling new taps and shower heads. Toiletries such as toothbrush/toothpaste, shampoo, body wash, towels all included. The environment was quite quiet as our windows did not face traffic. Breakfast was western,style. It was a semi,buffet where u choose a breakfast main course such as sausage, scrambled eggs and hashbrown. The semi,buffet range included salads, yogurts, fruits, few types of bread and confectionaries, cream cheese and butter. TV channels are international. The quality was good and tasty. The only problem I encountered was they forgot to serve the hashbrowns. Check out was generally good as they gave us an instruction slip the night before. We just need to leave our luggage in our room and they will move it down to the reception for us. The only mistake they made was not checking whether we have paid our hotel stay because they issued us the hotel bill which confused us since we already paid. Overall an excellent hotel which I will return when I come again to Male in the future.

                We stayed in Somerset Hotel for one night when returning from Maafushi Island. The staff accommodated our change in arrival and met us at the jetty to pick up our luggage and also arranged for our return ferry transfer to the airport for the next day. We booked the Deluxe room and it was spacious enough for 5 adults with the king bed and one queen bed. All the facilities were top class and we enjoyed browsing our photos on the large screen TV too. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant was one of the best and was very fulfilling. The hotel is very nearby souvenier shops and fish market which we walked to for visiting. Currently renovation is happening next door so the walkpath is a little small but no noise or disturbance from the renovation works at night. I liked that my entire family could stay in one room as we usually have to book 2 separate rooms. Made our departure from Maldives very nice!

                Brand new hotel, close to everything, airport transfer

                I spent two nights at The Somerset Hotel in between flights. As this was just after easter, none of the resort islands were within my budget, so The Somerset offered a nicely furnished and clean place to stay. The staff were very friendly and the airport transfer could not have been more easy (although there was a bit of confusion before I'd arrived, so I'd highly recommend confirming your arrival details directly with hotel a couple of days beforehand). As a point of comparison, I did check out the Hulhule Island Hotel (next to the airport) when I paid to use the pool there one afternoon and it felt a bit tired and worn down. I also enjoyed a great coffee in the lobby cafe of the Traders Hotel, which is upmarket and priced to match (I would have stayed here if it was within my budget).

                clean room, airport pick up service

                I was there only for a short overnight stay before going to the different island the next day. Unlike other hotels in male I have seen for the similar budget, this is a new modern type of hotel. Room is pretty much like the pictures you see from the website! Airport pick up service was very good and staffs were friendly. One minor issue I experienced was that hot water didn't work in our room but the staff let us use the shower in the other room. While I am satisfied with my stay at this hotel, I am not sure about the service from Agoda this time. The hotel price went down from Agoda site itself after I booked and I have asked for the refund for the difference but I did not hear back from customer service. i didn't want to be bothered by this too much but it is quite disappointing and makes me feel like I'd rather use different websites if similar prices are available.

                A great clean small hotel in Male”

                Location, price, cleanliness

                We had to stay a couple days in Somerset Hotel because our Liveaboard/Dive Safari boat wasn't leaving until a couple of days later - this is a common occurrence. If you need a nice, clean, relatively new place to stay in Male for a quick overnight or a couple of days - The Somerset Hotel fits the bill. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Clean showers and bathrooms - hot water with good pressure and cold air-con are refreshing. They offer transport to-from Male airport and will cover the cost of the boat (you take the public ferry to Male) and the cab ride to and from the hotel. Breakfast was surprisingly adequate! A cold-cut/fruit buffet with teas, coffee, pastries and breads - PLUS - you can order any item(s) from their hot breakfast menu as well! Pleasant and friendly staff. Will definitely stay at this hotel if I need a quick stopover in Male. Restaurant tip: Try the LEMONGRASS Thai/Indian restaurant just around the corner on the next street. Great Indian food - didn't try the Thai food, but the gravy-masala's are great with the cheese and garlic naan!

                I had a night with The Somerset Hotel and I would say my experience there was really good. From the pick up to check in, staff make sure that everything went smoothly and hassle free. I got a bigger room which has a living area and a room and unfortunately the air conditioning in the living area isn't working. It was about sleeping time then we realized this issue and called the reception immediately. Upon sending someone up, they gave us another alternative to change a room however we didn't wanted to go thru that hassle to pack and unpack our luggage again plus my mum was already asleep at that time. I'm really glad that they were very efficient when attending to us and repeatedly apologized for the problem. The hotel was really nice to allow us to check out later on our departure day as our flight is at night. P.s. I'm not someone who will review on every hotels I go this, but this encounter is by far one of the best. Keep it up!

The moment from the airport transfer to the check in were smooth and comfortable. We decide to try the only cafe in the hotel for lunch as after check in we were all very hungry.

                It's a wonderful hotel... Lovely service.. And fantastic food. Add to that a superb location and you have the making of a great hotel. It's a boutique hotel.. Very warm ambience and a restaurant Bel Amie that serves food to die for. The breakfast was a decent spread with options of choosing from the menu. Overall I loved the hotel. However the staff should be more forthcoming and open with their communication with the customers. We tried twice to avail their complimentary walking tour of Male city but the guide couldn't reach on time. Yet nobody informed us that Friday being a holiday everything will be shut in Maldives and we'll miss the museum, fish market etc. We could have visited those places by Thursday on our own instead of missing them. None of the hotel staff informed us about it.

                location, cleanliness, modern

                Generally a good (not great) quality hotel. The price as other similar hotels in Male, is expensive. Hotels is near the pier, at city center. Male is a small place, where it is walkable everywhere. And generally you can walk everywhere within Male, so although the location is near the harbor/pier, it does not really provide that great an advantage comparatively. However hotel is clean, and everything inside the room is working fine - would say met expectations for the price charged.
