I stayed for one night from 29 May 2014. I was travelling from Singapore and landed at around 10PM. Took the ferry to Male, then a cab to the hotel. I was greeted by a nice and friendly front desk staff. He led me to the room which was already ready and the bed was sooo good. I will recommend... More

One of the most comfortable stays at Male. I and my girlfriend had visited Male last year and stayed at the Marble Hotel. Lovely building, elegantly done in authentic Male styling with some of the most traditional decors. We were here during last Christmas vacation and enjoyed our stay to the fullest. Not only are the rooms large and comfortable,... More

I stayed here for a day. The staff was polite. Breakfast average. Rooms neat. Not a bad place if you have come here for business and not staying for more than a night or two. The location is good. They also arranged for a free pick up and drop off to the Jetty. All in all quite satisfied.

I had returned back to the Marble Hotel, after my not-so-nice experience, just because the Hotel stands very close to the building where I often come for business. I was expecting that the Hotel must have improved on its standards, at-least considering the dollars it charges. Disappointing, it was still the same. Some amount of renovation atleast did help marginally.... More

We only booked this overnight hotel because we had to wait for the ferry to Maafushi. We wanted to take the 10 o'clock ferry the next day, but at the reception they told us there was only a ferry going at 15.00. We were very dissapointed, because that meant we had to stay one more day in Male city (and... More

I stayed there two times and found it nice. Good location. People are relatively good but you need to ask them what you need. One has to bargain for price also. People working there are from different South Asian countries and can speak English and South Asian languages. Restaurant is located on the top of the roof and provides good... More

I went to Male on a budget and when I checked the rates of the Marble Hotel online I thought that the hotel would be able to fit into my wallet. I got there alone and got a king sized bed because they said they had that so I requested for one. When I got to my room I was... More
