Stayed here for day only (arrived in the morning and had the hotel until dinner time time as we had a 10 pm flight). It was a perfect place to stay for the day. Roof top pool, centrally located (though everything is in Male - tiny Island). Had a lift. Room was big and clean and bathroom was really nice...

The rooms are quite shabby, but the sheets and bathroom where clean, which was good enough for me for the purpose. If you are staying in Male, all locations are good, you can walk criss cross all the island, and if you are lazy or carry on language, there is a flat rate of 20-25 MVR for a taxi ride....

I really enjoyed my stay here. I got here really early in the morning and the staff seemed to be concerned that I was chilling in the lobby (they didn't have any of my 'level, of rooms available yet), so they sent me to an unoccupied room until my room was ready, so I wouldn't be in lobby. When I...

Centrally located, walking distance to most places, friendly & accommodating staff, comfortable beds, which you don't find alot of in Male.

The hotel was clean and amenities were adequate enough for the price. The staffs were all helful but would love to mention the Bangladeshi housemen whose name i dont remember. But the default is the satellite connection always use to go off. No wifi .. i had to buy a dongle to get my work done.
