I Stayed here for a week at the end of May. Getting there: I made my own way there from the airport and walked to the hotel. I was greeted by Abdul, the hotel manager, on his first day. He was extremely helpful! He really went out of his way to ensure that I had the best time while I... More

Althought the staff were friendly and helpful, I really cannot recommend this hotel for the following reasons: 1) Our airport pick-up did not materialise. We waited 20 minutes and then made our own way to the hotel at our expense, although we had paid Agoda for a transfer. 2) Breakfast was a sad affair served up on a ledge overlooking... More

For th price you pay, you get your money's worth. Very affordable yet very good, I found the rooms were quite clean & had nothing to complain. Had WiFi in the lobby as well. The place was very quite with hardly any disturbance. There were a few good restaurants close to this place which had good food. King's Corner comes... More

This is very small hotel, but it's just fine for short modest stay. Complimentary airport transfer works, I was fetched from airport 20 mins after call to hotel (flight was hours late). There is no restaurant, but they make simple breakfast. In room the bed takes most of the space, and the electricity sockets might work or not. There is... More

Like everyone else, we needed overnight accomodation before flying out to our resort the next morning. After doing plenty of research on Male accomodation, it seemed pretty clear its overpriced and not of a great standard. So the challenge was to not feel entirely ripped off after checking out of one of these places. Boutique inn did acheive that. It... More

There is nothing ‘boutique’ or ‘villa’ about The Boutique Inn at Villa Shabnamee. There is, however, a whole lot of dirty and unfriendly. We cannot reconcile our extremely negative experience here with some of the more recent comments. We had an online booking (which we re-confirmed via e-mail before our flight) and arrived late at night to a dank lobby... More
