We stayed at Skai Lodge for one night at the beginning of April. Considering the price we weren't expecting a lot and it was basic to say the least. Thankfully the bed sheets appeared clean but I'm afraid the overall cleanliness of the room was very poor, with a very unpleasant smell in the bathroom. The room was large with... More

I'll not put here too much detail here since nothing good to say about this guest house. I few words: Dirty, noisy, old, bad breakfast…Avoid staying at this hotel even for 1 night. My recommendation is not to stay in Malé at all. Better to stay at HuluMalé close to the airport and you can take the ferry to visit... More

Simple place, but not bad at all. The food is good, air condition and wifi works well. The location is excellent if you come from or go to the airport. A taxi will cost you 35 Rufia and if you don't have too much baggage it's about 10 minutes walking, and easy to find. The ferry to other islands is... More

We had to stay one night in Male before we went to the island because the speedboat transfer is not available at night. The hotel is near the ferry terminal, 5 minutes walk or 2 minutes by taxi and costs $5. We took the ferry from the airport, the ticket was $2 at night and $1 during the day. You... More

We had to stopover in male, before heading out to the resort island, and this hotel seemed perfect for this. Very close to the ferry terminal and centrally located to the small island capital, this lodge is a perfect stopover. Don't eexpect anything great though. It is advisable to reach the hotel directly from the airport ( a small ferry... More

Decent average accommodation for a night or two. We stayed two nights just before heading out to one of the nice resorts. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Room was simple but clean. It was very easy to get to from the airport fairy, about a five minute walk. While not expecting much from the food, it was actually pretty... More

We stayed in November 2014. The only plus was the price, by which I mean it was pricey but the cheapest option in an expensive place. Go with the right expectations. We got a very generous room (Triple Room) which I guess is saying something as some other rooms we saw in Male were miniscule. Don't forget to include taxes... More

As we were only staying for one night, we chose the most decent looking amongst the cheapest choices. If you have extra money to spare, find a better one. But if you are ok with anything for one night, this is good enough for the price. Our room was very spacious, although because the lighting was a bit gloomy, I... More

If you have an overnight stay in Male for going to the resort or to the airport, you can try out this budget hotel with no thrill or frills.Nothing special but rooms are comparatively clean with a small bathroom. We stayed in a triple room which was ok in size. There is no view though as the windows open into... More
