“Simple hotel in a good location”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We weren't supposed to stay in that Malé Hotel in the first place but were booked here through an operator. After a long flight we didn't really care too much as the location was in walking distance to the airport ferry. Hotel staff was very friendly, amenities were simple. We just had a regular room, with a nice view over the ocean. We unfortunately didn't have hot water in the shower, the towels were stained and the overall impression wasn't very clean. Breakfast was poor. We wouldn't return.

Was there to spend a night as I had a early morning flight to catch from Male Airport. I had a ocean facing room but very small room and the bathroom was very small. Hotels are expensive and it is average accomodation. Ask for a higher floor room.

Room Tip: higher floors with ocean view.

Relax Inn, Male - Average Accommodation

We had a one night stop at Male, catching a connecting flight the next morning to the Maldives.
This accommodation is basic, and met its need for a basic, affordable place to stay for the night..

As far as I am aware there are not many flash places to stay at on the main island and if you are looking for just a one stop wonder for the night- this place will do.

Had a lay day in Male waiting for an evening flight. Chose this place for locality (1 street back from ferry terminal) ,Wi Fi , early check in and value.
Ticked all the boxes except for Wifi which they didn't sort out.
I arrived about 11am and checked straight in which was great.
Easy stroll with suitcases to the ferry terminal and the restaurant was good value compared to most around this area. I'd visit again.

Room Tip: I had a room facing the Ferry Terminal. Beautiful view but noisy during the day. I assume it would b...

If you are interested to stay in this hotel, I would recommend you to stay at the Suite room, as it is bigger, much cleaner, and has a nice balcony overseeing the sea.
It is really nice actually.

I booked a suite triple room through a travel agent, Shades of Maldives, which I fully recommend.
When I arrived, late at night, the reception said that there is no available Suite triple room.
Instead, offered me an executive triple room(which has triple single bed)
I just agreed to it as all of us were too tired.
Well, not a happy experince for me because the bathroom stinks and it takes a while for the water to flow into the drainage.
The room was stuffy and the aircon wasn't cool enough.
The next morning, I check again to the reception, there is a new shift of reception.
The new guy that served me understood my concern and explained to me that Suite room is only available in double bed+extra bed configuration, which is fine with me.
So we moved to the Suite room the next day, and I'm happy with it!
Aircon is cool, bathroom is clean, this is what I expect! :))

Great location next to ferry terminal. Staff were very friendly. Restaraunt food was pleasant and good value. We stayed in a suite and had nice views of the airport and other islands. The bed was comfortable but that's it. The bathroom had not been cleaned properly and the doors both to the corridor and balcony were very flimsy. Also despite the suite looking a generous size on hotel booking websites, it is in fact a bit cramped even compared to standard rooms of other hotels. At over $150 for one night it is very poor value for money .

This hotel has a great position. I must have been in the same room as Anil as I also had two cockroaches.We ate in the restaurant and while the food was nothing special the service was friendly. I would eat here again if in Male.The hotel is expensive for what it is but this is the same in every hotel in Male.
