I stayed in the Mookai Hotel 2 single nights in the first week of October 2014; one before & one after my stay on a liveaboard dive boat to accommodate flight times. The Mookai is very conveniently located within a 2 minute walk of the airport ferry landing, which was perfect for my needs. It is also convenient to many... More

I attended a half-day workshop organised by my employer which was hosted at this hotel. The meeting room is located on the 9th floor and accommodates about 35 people. The view from the meeting room is quite good. There's a pool which is accessible from the meeting room as well. One thing we didn't like was the location of the... More

We stayed at Mookai on 30/08/2014 for a night on transit to an island and even though we travel to developing countries all the time and are OK with sub standard hotels, with Mookai, we found the management and staff to be purely ignorant and lazy. We will never stay here again: 1. Bathroom - the shower area is filthy... More

I should say, hotels in Male are not fantastic in general.. Except one or two very pricey hotels, they are just simple and filled minimum standards, still a bit pricey in light of the quality you can get. Having said so, this hotel is fine: very close to the airport shuttle boat port, only 3 minutes walk, some rooms are... More

Stayed one week in 505 which is a big room with a very nice view of the sea. This may get blocked soon as a hotel is being built in front. Room was cleaned daily and linen changed. No bugs. Bath was clean. This floor is looked after by a Sri Lankan room boy. Outside the room there is a... More

If nothing else was available in Male, I would cancel my trip, rather than stay at this hotel again. Terrible service - the first 2 days of my stay, the room wasn't cleaned all day. The rooms are tired and asking for a refurbishment for years and the staff remains grumpy. The only great thing is the location, which is... More

Stayed at the Mookai for a night. Despite the small room (403), the place is ideal for a short stay in the main island. The staff at the reception were extremely helpful and courteous. It's just a hop, step and a jump from the getty and close to the Traders Hotel.

It is a good hotel for a short stay. Centrally located, very close to the boat taxi to the airport and less than a five minute walk to the Traders Hotel area. The rooms are clean, have ac, good bed and would be a good choice for a night or two. Do not pay for their breakfast as it is... More

We arrived at Male airport without having made prior arrangements for a place to stay. We were referred to a tour operator who suggested we stay one night in Male at the Mookai Hotel before heading out to the Islands. This hotel was within walking distance to Male City Centre and 15 minutes away from the airport by speedboat. Although... More
