In a small town like Male, the location perhaps may not be considered crucial. However, even within that caveat, the setting of Hotel Jen (formerly The Traders Hotel) is perfect; within a stones throw from the waterfront (Jetty 6), the most important government buildings (including the defense and foreign ministries, presidential offices and residence), some very good restaurants (Aioli, Thai...

Staff is nice. Service is great. Good breakfast, Many kind of foods and good taste. Room is clean, even a bit small but it's fit for me. The caution! Shower room's floor is slippery. All in all is very good.

By prior arrangement with the hotel, we landed in Male at 9.30am and Hotel Jen were happy to let us check-in early and were waiting at the airport to take us by speedboat to the hotel. When we arrived on the main island they had a car waiting to take us to the hotel front entrance which was only about... More

After spending 3 days in the remote island in South atoll it's not fair to compare this hotel with one of the resort. First, the nature of this hotel I think intended for people that are intransit for the next day flight. We did the same thing. After 3 days in other island, waiting for our flight the next day,...

This was a great surprise as our travel agent could not tell us much about it. But we thought it was terrific! Very clean, large rooms with large bathroom. The staff were great - very accommodating, met us at the dock, gave us ideas for dinner places, directions to shopping and what to see and always with a smile. The... More

We had about 18 hours to kill from when we landed in Male until we got picked up for scuba diving. We were on the Aggressor Maldives and their travel group put us into the Jenn. Good hotel, friendly staff, reasonably good quality rooms, nice pool on top, good food. Location is great in that you are right on the... More

Just arrived and checked in, and I can't help but write this review immediately. We were kept waiting at the airport arrival hall for over 45 mins because the hotel did not arrange enough boats to transfer all the arriving guests. It's completely unacceptable. It's 11pm now and we are all exhausted so will make an official complaint tomorrow.

We booked this hotel after our week long dive trip on Scubaspa as we have a no fly 24 hour period after diving. This hotel has been renovated and has a real trendy and clean appearance. The staff are all dressed very smartly and have a real happy attitude towards their jobs. They are all dressed very casual but very... More
