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

In Male, you can only get average standard hotel, this one is reasonably priced and good enough just to stay overnight for transferring to resort or airport. We stay in a triple room and the room size is good compared with other similar price hotel in Male.

The plus is location, meaning you can walk to the airport express ferry. Rooms are clean and quite comfortable with no view since a nearby building is just a few feet away. The only beach on the island is a small artifical beach where locals are swimming so you need to arrange yourself a trip to Kuda Bandos Picnic Island... More

Not good service at all. Our plane got reschedule, so we had to cancel our stay. They got message 6 days ahead, but still wanted to get paid for the whole stay. If you book this place be sure that you are going there on time.

Stayed here for one night before joining a liveaboard dive boat. Male' hotel options are not great and the best ones are expensive so this was a good find. Located less than 10 minutes walk from the ferry terminal to/from the airport it is a short walk from the main street and shopping areas. The lobby and rooms were simple... More

I had a layover in Male for one night, so I decided to stay in town (rather than hang out in the airport, bored out of my mind!). I booked this place because I was not looking to spend a fortune on a hotel. I only wanted somewhere safe, clean and comfortable. And, although this place is not fancy and... More

Rather then spend thousands a nite on a Maldivian resort I opted for $70 a nite on this little B&B on Male. Using it as a base for scuba diving with the local Male dive centre it turned out to be a pleasant house meeting my basic expectations. I was placed in a relatively small room with a tiny window...
