The location is great - 2 minutes walk from the National Museum, the central Mosque and the waterfront. The food is wonderful - great mix of various asian and other dishes. The breakfast is a wonderful buffet which also enables one to choose from a variety of specially prepared hot dishes mad to order - not just sitting and congealing on the buffet. Staff are super helpful.

I was very happy to have found this hotel for an overnight in Male before transferring to our resort. The pick up and transportation from the airport was easy and seamless. The customer service was outstanding. The hotel contacted my resort to ensure a proper transfer the next morning and even provided a take away breakfast for us as we were leaving prior to breakfast opening. The room we rented was very large with a bedroom and living room and superbly clean. Highly recommend!
