Male is not a very clean city and I was a little concerned as we approach the hotel. I was immediately greeted by the owner, Thomas Stahl, and my concerns were laid to rest as I was escorted inside what is truly a Boutique Hotel. Everything was extremely clean, freshly painted with Thai based deco art appropriately displayed. I was...

Having only two days we decided to stay in Malé town and not one of the 100s of island hotel resorts. Possibly a mistake but our host Thomas could not have been more friendly and helpful. From the minute we arrived and received a very warm welcome, Thomas took over and became our travel agent, restaurateur and transport manager. The...

This is, perhaps, a house converted into a hotel. It is a place where you can just pass a night when you don't have an option. It has no neighbourhood. It is located inside narrow lanes. No regular restaurant. Breakfast served is brought from outside. Gives a dingy feeling. One GOOD point was the manager/Incharge. He was a very pleasant...

We were treated so well by the staff here at the hotel. The room was wonderful and clean and the food was ample and very tasty. I can see why the restaurant was rated #1 in the area. The operations manager gave us suggestions on what to see and do here in Male and helped us navigate through the ferries...

We stayed in Sala for 1 night before travelling to a resort to maximise the resort time. Airport pick up was smooth, great porter, amazing food for dinner and breakfast and service was second to none. I couldn't recommend highly enough!

We needed a place in the center of town to explore the Maledives capital. The Salah Hotel was a perfect choice. The rooms are very clean, although a bit small but well furnished. The Thai restaurant is outstanding and well known by the locals. And Raj the Indian manager is a wonder of helpful professionality. He would contact us to...

The hotel is run by a German expat. It is close to the harbor and the airport. I found it very clean, well decorated, and well run. I would like to stay there again if I happen to stay at Male. I stayed here while waiting for my transfer to my LOB dive boat. The hotel also has a good...

We have stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. And we absolutely loved our stay there. Thomas the owner and staff was very very welcoming and caring. He even guided us to one of the best and affordable resorts in Maldives, and helped with booking and transfers. I am very thankful to him and the staff for making our stay...

We spent one night here before catching seaplane in the morning to the resort. Before arriving I've communicated with the manager by giving him our flight time and resort name, the manager really arranged e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g from airport pickup, coordination with our resort, drop off for seaplane, we did not have to worry a thing.
