“stranded in Male..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

Terrible terrible experience and suggest not to take this place. Was staying at the hotel and had checked out and then back in after 4 days after telling them I will be back at specific time and date -- only to find out when I returned that they never kept a room available for me. They suggested another hotel (a worse one) and gave an explanation that the guest had not yet checked out for me to get a room. This was a blatant lie. Never compensated me at all. The hotel is overrated and the staff are not sensitive to the guests. I recommend not to stay here.

Room Tip: live on the 1st floor to get natural light.. the ground level rooms is like living in a crypt..

This is Male Island, not a luxury resort island, and expectations need to be realistic. With this in mind I'd give it 3.5. It's much better than other hotels in Male that are in the same price range. I had a downstairs room that was big and clean with good TV and wireless internet - just don't expect a view. The service is ok and the breakfast buffet is good too. It's also almost opposite the airport ferry and 50 minutes from one of the island ferry terminals - in which (upstairs at the back) is the Sea House cafe / restaurant - one of the best in Male.

Male hotel just to spend 1 night... It may have been a luxury hotel 50 years ago, now has a nice reception, but the rooms have awful view and are pretty basic...

I was there for 2 days. Most of the time, i was out. I wouldn't recommend this if you visit with your family. You don't get what you paid for.

This is the worst hotel i ever stayed in my life. The staff is uncaring and uncourteous. The promise lot of things but when you actually checkin you find it was all false commitment.
There are many other good hotels in Male with better service. Dont ever think of staying in this hotel...

We were stuck in Male for a week and stayed here for a few days. It is a 5 minute ferry ride to the airport which is good, but that puts it in a very busy, noisy part of town, which is bad. The rooms are small and quite dark, and should you get a room overlooking the restaurant, very noisy. The restaurant is very average except is has very good wifi. Proximity to restaurants really doesn't matter because you can walk all around the island in under an hour. That having been said, the staff were terrific. They copied and faxed for us, made phone calls and tried to track down our missing package. They all seemed to take a personal interest in our plight and couldn't do enough.
Not the greatest place but very convenient if you need a place for just one night.
