A very nice small hotel. Very clean, new furniture, extremely polite and very helpful staff. Location is good in Male but the narrow street it is in leaves the wrong impression, once you walk in, it is a very well kept and very clean hotel. I will definitely stay there whenever I am in Male.

This hotel is probably the best in terms of location, just opposite the National Museum and walking distance to some good restaurants, ferry, and shopping. The hotel is located in an inner alley so thankfully there is not a lot of traffic noise considering the busy traffic in Male. The room is a bit small for the price we paid...
