We stayed here for 1 night before we set off to the island resort based on comments on tripadvisor, though not being compared by other hotels in Male', I think this place to OK to stay.
We were picked up at the Male' intl airport by hotel staff, they wore t-shirts with the name "Hotel Octave" on the back, it would be easy to identify afterwards if you missed their man at the arrival gate because we somehow missed it, cannot recall what their wrote on their welcoming board. Their men further picked up 2-3 couples before we set out to Male', that's another 30 minutes waiting time.
Then we were led to the ferry, and were sent on the ferry boat to Male' from the airport island, when we got off the ferry boat, the hotel staff prepared a car at the ferry to drive us to their hotel, welcoming ice tea were offered when checking in, it's sweat.
The room is pretty much large, looks like a family suite, they have washing machine, the kitchen, even an extra bed, I thought those things are not needed in most cases, given the situation that most people book this place just for stay one night before going to resorts.
Everything in the room is OK, except for the hot water does not last long enough (maybe we took too much time showering, bad habit), after around 10-15 minutes hot water shower, the water did not feel hot anymore.
When we finished check-in, it was almost 1 mid night, hotel helped us to contact the island resort, and we were informed to leave this hotel and head to the sea plane site at 7 in the morning, the hotel especially arranged us to have breakfast at 6:30 even if their breakfast time normally starts at 7.
The breakfast is classic and I should say it was very good, watching the alleys from the 2nd floor and enjoy a quick breakfast. Then the hotel car send us again to the ferry and then to the hotel reception of our resort, the transfer is free.
Generally, this is a good place to stay.
