This is the oldest city hotel in Male', and is located quite close to the airport and Hulhumale' ferry services. The rooms and decor are quite old fashioned and needs an upgrade. Only good for a short stay - for a day or two.

Stayed one night after a late flight into Male . Got through customs then pointed to the direction of a small ferry to Male . The port at Male was 10 steps away from the hotel front entrance . Ask for a room on the first floor . Room was old , but very clean with new aircond. unit .... More

Nasandhura palace has the best location in case you come for overnight to male'. It's easy to get there as it's just in front of ferry.rooms are quite spacious although there are some weak points. Ground floor rooms are really smelly cause of humid so bed sheets doesn't seem fresh and feels like you need to take shower every couple... More

The best thing about Nasandhura is that it is just across from the ferry boarding point. You can just drag your luggage across. The three times I have stayed there, for varying periods, the rooms were musty, and sometimes gave me a headache because of the repellents/insecticides. The rooms are otherwise clean and very basic, the bath is passable and... More

Spent a night here coz couldn't get a room at Traders or Somerset. Basic 3 star hotel with basic but quite huge room equipped with 3 beds. Wooden creaking furniture fill the room. Very strong mouldy smell the moment you step in. Minimum but sufficient amenities can be found in the room for a comfortable stay. Don't expect much staff... More

We spent one night in this hotel, because of a forced visit to the hospital during our vacation in Maldives. The room was big and rather well equiped, but the smell of moist and overused menthol spray ( probably to kill the smell of moist ) The bed and sheets were also "wet" and it was not possible to have...

Having read some of the critical reviews in Trip Advisor for this hotel, it was with some trepidation that we booked it. The first pleasant surprise was that it was exactly across the road from the airport ferry. In fact the location was good for catching other ferries. The Post Office was next door and a short walk took you... More

Stayed here before catching a flight home from a 10 day SCUBA trip. Rooms were clean and had TV, internet and clean bathroom. The restaurant next to the hotel, Trends, was a good place to get lunch. Don't expect any alcoholic beverages though.

I stayed twice in the Nasandhura Palace Hotel, strange enough each time in the same room. The rooms are very clean, simple but have everything one needs, mini bar, clean bathrooms, TV and Wifi on demand. The best part of the hotel is its location, basically directly opposite the water taxis, so it is just a view steps to get... More

We stay at the Nasandhura hotel because we were looking for a simple hotel. Our goal was diving in the Maldives and we found a dive place within a few steps from the hotel. Island Malé is not that popular among tourists and this allows you to have great rates for restaurants. This is not a flashy place so don’t... More
