An average place to stop over. V small roof top pool with only one sun lounger and a couple of seats. Room was large and clean although smelt a little damp. No view except over the back of other buildings but that isn't unusual in Male. Didn't eat breakfast so can't comment. Good Airport pick up/transfer. Ok. We decided to...

Friendly reception, private dinning ( room service ) was excellent. I did not use pool so I can not comment on. - price is reasonable - beautiful location - great options for...

Very simple hotel. The room was small and clean. They were very accommodating. Picked me up from the airport and then got me back free of charge. Also brought breakfast to my room and walked me around town to find something for dinner.

Small rooms, with basic mini bar, wifi, hot water in shower and air conditions. I won't say the room was spotlessly clean. Helpful stuffs. Almost on the main road majhedee magu, so location wise really good. Helpful stuff.

I picked up Central Boutique Hotel for the only reason that it had a swimming pool. Then I picked a room at the top floor, 5th floor, Room 502 - a double deluxe room. The room had a lovely AC that was new and nothing makes me happier than being in a room that is cool enough. Apart from that,...

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....
