Hotel is new ,clean with helpful service .Someone pick you up at airport and will take care of you .Hotel is quiet at some distance from ferry pier. So you will need a taxi to reach restaurant or airport where you will be able to get boat or seaplane to reach wonderful islands. Anyway we are far away from 5 stars standings,Rooms are really small and not very well equiped. Basic Foam matress not really confortable It s like a normal hotel at 1/100 scale.A puppet house. Just a 2 stars hotel don t expect much or you will be really disapointed.

We only had on overnight stay in Male as we arrived too late to transfer directly to our island. I went for the Hotel Octave because of the good reviews, the reasonable price and the convenience of the airport transfer.

Once we cleared customs a representative was there to meet us at the airport as they promised, he promptly helped us with our luggage and directed us to the ferry pier where he told us they upgraded us to the speedboat which would take us a couple of minutes to arrive in Male. Once we arrived in Male they quickly transferred us to a car and made our way to the hotel.

On arrival at the hotel we were given a refreshing cold towel and a welcome drink, both were a welcome relief. We were then shown to our room which was quite small but clean. We asked if there was an ATM close by and they told us when we were ready they would get one of their staff to take us to the ATM which was a couple of minutes walk away. As promised they got one of their staff to escort us to the ATM, very good service.

The location is only a few minutes walk from the main street but there didn't seem to be much to do once it was dark, we found it difficult to find many eateries (there is a restaurant in the hotel but we wanted to try to find something outside) and there were no shops open. Breakfast was a little dissappointing. I was keen to try the local breakfast but when I asked what the 3 different local breakfasts consisted of I was told they were all fish dishes (he couldn't really describe the difference between the 3 dishes, it would probably be a good idea to give a description in the menu) and I wasn't that keen on fish for breakfast so I went for the western style which consisted of toast, chicken sausage (which looked like canned sausages), eggs and tea/coffee.

Check out was smooth and they provided a transfer back to the airport (I thought only a one way transfer was included in the rate so this was a bonus). I would recommend the Hotel Octave for a stopover in Male.

Not many reviews of this hotel here. So, just some simple facts about Octave
1) It's situated just in the center of Male, a minute walk from intersection of main street and trade street. Taxi from jetty pier costs $2. 
2)  Immediate neighborhood: some workshops and shabby buildings. But the hotel itself is a brand new and modern. Just don't expect breathtaking view from window
3) Rooms are small. But very clean and, once again, modern, even brand new, flat-screen  TV included. So is bathroom. A/c works the way it should. Great bedd 
3) Staff is very polite and attentive. 
4) And, yes, the Olive restaraunt. The gem hidden on the second floor... They serve tasty pan-asian food for very small money.
5) My price for room was $80 per day. Think it was worth every penny.

Very pleasant surprise - impeccably clean room and bathroom. Hotel restaurant has a very good choice of meals at affordable prices. A dinner at hotel was (surprisingly) significantly cheaper than dinner in an restaurant in Male city (unfortunately - forgot the name). Would definitely come back and recommend!
