4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

We stayed here just for one night then we continued to our journey to Park Hyatt next day. The hotel is clean and tidy. The services were good (managed by Shangri-la), the hotel location was very convenience that takes 5 mins speed boat from international airport or domestic airport.

This is a transit hotel, period. But way over-priced. The room is the size of room of the same price in Paris 1st & 8th. Hotel is clean, front desk staff is mixed - the locals are nice but the expats are aloof. The top floor restaurant surprisingly has really good food.

A great place to stay and visit, a lot cheaper and far more friendlier than HulHule Male Airport Hotel (only difference is they have alcohol licence - for which you need a rather large bank account as NOT reasonably priced more like over priced) Hotel Jen is in a good location, great staff and an awesome breakfast spread... Not sure... More

Stayed here overnight before transferring to another resort. Can't really fault them service-wise. Pick-up to and from the airport was well arranged and check-in / out went smoothly. The hotel is in a very convenient location with regards to the airport. 5 minutes by boat and then a very short walk is all that is required. Noted that there were... More

The entire staff team from arrival to speedboat transfer to front desk to restaurant to check-out were truly exceptional. Having stayed at Traders/Shang in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Hong Kong, Kowloon, Makati, Shanghai... I would rate this property among the top three. Buffet breakfast selection and food quality is not too bad. As I had GC Jade membership, breakfast is... More

Stayed at the Jen for a night to get our flight out of the Maldives due to maintenance on our aircraft. I wasn't expecting much when the airline told us we were going to spend a night at a hotel. But we were surprised by how good the hotel is. The rooms are ample, the bathroom spotless and the food... More

When we arrived in the Maldives this hotel was called the Traders Hotel. 10 days later when we finished our sailing cruise it had been rebranded and re vamped as The Jen Hotel. The staff had new brightly coloured uniforms and were vibrant and enthusiastic, extremely friendly and personable but still professional. They gave us advice on where to eat... More
