Reviewed March 12, 2013

I state that I have not stayed at this hotel, very well put and in a new building, designed by no more than five months ago, small but cozy and clean. Hasseb the exhibitor is a Maldivian co partner with an Italian still absent, it is absolutely great. Hasseb speaks Italian very well and with properties and manages the hotel, they do have stayed in two of my colleagues, a small restaurant with traditional cuisine but also Italian dishes. I eat good pasta, well cooked and quality. My colleagues have told me that the rooms, although not very large, they are comfortable and clean. Hasseb has worked hard proactively to meet our needs, loosing a full day to take us around the islands.
I will definitely stay in this hotel for my business trips that will continue in the near future, and make this place my fixed point.

Dear Mauro Monti,

Your most welcome description of you and your friends visit to Le Vieux Nice Inn either for dinner, recreational activity or residency is most important for us to know. We feel like the United Nations with the varied International occupancy and culinary requests of our most discerning guests.

Very notable as you very well stated is your superb satisfaction of the Italian Cuisine as being well prepared in a quality style of acceptance by you and your friends is kindly appreciated by our Chef Ali and his staff.

It is a joy to know of your pleasurable Italian language communication with Haseeb. His many years in Monaco and Nice, France along with Milan, Italy are now very obvious in our daily operation.

Your excursion of native islands with Haseeb must have been most informative of the native Maldives Culture. Therefore and most positively the hospitality of Haseeb and our staff encouraged you to say that when in the Maldives you will make Le Vieux Nice Inn your fixed point of hotel residency.

We only have ten European décor styled rooms in groups of five on two levels. Each set of five varies in size with the smallest being large by local standards and often described as incomparable, this you will notice on your first overnight stay.

Your kind commentary as submitted has encouraged a moment for us to express our pride and prevailing hospitable welcome of convenience and comfort.

We look forward to have you visit again and enjoy the Maldives Culture and hospitality within us.

Most sincerely,

John Seyfert
Innkeeper

Dear Krista,

You are most kind to take the time to comment on your brief visit and enjoyable dinner. If I recall correctly, you had one of our very special Seafood Platters. This is a popular dinner entrée with our certain touch of Italian and French condiments very pleasing to the most discerning palate.

Thank you for the recognition but no successful entrepreneur stands alone. You must have met the proprietor Haseeb who may have proudly greeted you or joined you for a brief conversation. Along with him and investor friends in Europe and America we made a dream come true.

Your genuine commentary will remain with us for a long time.

Most sincerely,

John Seyfert

A new small hotel on the airport island. Its nice to be nice and I agree this was very nice and friendly and they made us feel at home. Rooms are clean staff are friendly and you feel very comfortable. If you want maldives brochure 5* then go to a resort but if u are a little more adventurius like to stay where some locals live and get the public ferry and explore then this is good. local area and beach can do with a little clean but you can meet with locals get the ferry to mali and further and if you want still have trips to fantastic resorts on day trips this was the better option for us. thanks John and all the great crew for making us feel so welcome. Downside of airport island at present apart from our hotel where food was good there was a lack of eating places and a coffee bar and no drinking or on Mali not a problem for me coffee is fine but if thats what you want you have to go to a resort. This area as mali beach is local and Muslim so no bikini for women so ressect and enjoy overall our 4 nights was great but 7 would have been better

Dear Jimbo Jim,

It was an absolute joy to have you stay with us and now what a delight to read your expressions of satisfaction.

Yes, we may be a small hotel but proudly overflowing with hospitality which you so kindly took the time to write. I agree that our staff with their contagious smile gave immediate comfort upon your arrival which was surpassed by their willing service to you during your stay.

You are so kind to comment on the Maldives culture which is an attraction in itself to observe and understand.

I have great hesitancy ending this letter to you but business is calling me away.

Sincerely,

John Seyfert

I lived in this hotel for 12 days with my small child and I found it very comfortable for staying. Rooms are very clean, the food in the restaurant of high quality and very tasty. Haseeb, you are the best!! The beach is very close to the hotel and clean. In 3 minutes of walking there is a children's Playground. And there are a lot of shops on this island where you can buy everything. It was very comfortable for me and my child of 2.7 years and I`m going to come back in May. From airport it is 10 min by taxi! People are very friendly everywhere and for my child it was very interesting ti play with the Maldivian children.

Dear Notik,

What a pleasant surprise to have you visit us again by this posted commentary. Your enjoyment and satisfaction of an extended stay is our true objective in creating the convenience and comfort equivalent of an island resort while being reasonably affordable. Although we are only two months new, our recreation department is significantly being established to accommodate and fulfill a guests enjoyment of the Maldives in its entirety.

It is with ultimate delight to know and as we observed, your sons happiness in being playful with his Maldivian friends. As well, your comfort of the beach and swimming the lagoon was obvious.

Yes, Haseeb must be complimented on his diligent effort and European design enhancements to his property in creating our classic look already highly complimented by our most discerning guests. A true international accomplishment. As to his culinary status, you explained it well in a few words.

We look forward to your return visit and satisfaction of the Maldivian hospitality.

Most Sincerely,

John Seyfert
