The Somerset is a relatively small hotel almost hidden away in a typical narrow street in Male. I stayed here for two nights on a business trip. On previous trips I had always stayed in another hotel in Male. I am returning to Male in June and the Somerset now has a new "returning customer". The rooms are not large...

Near the President Pier and therefore lots of place of interest around. Provide free airport pick up (including paying for taxi and airport ferry transfer) and departure send off to any pier and the airport (including paying for taxi fare). Room is good size with all facilities e.g. cable TV, strong WiFi, fridge, coffee making machine, kettle, safe, toiletries, bathrobes,...

its a tiny hotel in comparison to other places around the world but easily the most reliable and convenient places if you wish to stay in malé rooms are small but clean and well equipped the restaurant is equally small but has great food only downside is that the hotel is situated on a narrow lane with limited access

I find most hotels in Malé are 1-3 stars with horrible beds. The only good ones I find are Somerset and Hotel Jen. The only problem with hotel Jen is the price, as it's the only 5 star property on Malé. Somerset is a wonderful choice. The property is small but beautiful. The rooms are in great conditions. Very clean....
