The staff is nice and helpful, the WIFI worked ok, I used to stay there because is much cheaper than other overpriced hotels in Male, but I got tired of reserve on the phone, and then show up and they don´t have the reservation, and try to sell you a bigger room instead..... the traffic is very loud and until...

We stayed 3 nights. The price is right, but the rooms are tiny, the showers have not curtain or boundaries. Breakfast is included, it's simple but adequate. The service is very good, but they only clean the room if you ask them to. All of the staff spoke English. The wifi worked in the dining room, so the rooms nearer... More

I can say that the rating of the hotel itself is average more like poor. Food is not so good, beds are average. It would be good if the owner make renovation like painting the walls, refresh all the bed sheds and mattresses with new one, to get new towels, and to have shampoo and shower gel in the room.It...

This hotel is in need of major refurbishing! Cracked and messy scuffed walls all throughout the hotel. No elevator with a dark, narrow, and unventilated stairway. Bathroom towels were obviously overused, old & stained! No bath mats. Bathroom and room were not cleaned properly if it was cleaned at all! The pictures on travel sites were very deceiving!

The stay was okay, stable wifi, average food served, the room was comfortable. And the best part of my staying experience here is the staff! They have really nice, helpful and friendly staffs here. They greet you whenever they see you and I really feel at home.

I would highly recommend this hotel. It's easy to find, it's near from the jetties and main shops and the room is worth your money. They have free internet but it's not much reliable, I was staying in the 3rd floor and net was very slow. And they don't have elevators, get your legs ready for the long way up... More
