“Convenient stayover”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Have a great night stay over, room design is very unique & romantics, just that blanket is replace by bedsheet. Toilet window at Room 203 can be seen across opposite by next building, so hope that the hotel could blind the toilet window as improvement. Staff is friendly and service is good. Overall we have a very pleasant stay and most important is convenient and very nearby to Airport.

All I have to say to Le Vieux Nice Inn is "Thankyou". I had a fantastic stay over two nights recently and I was left wanting to come back. The level of service, attention to detail and relaxed demeanour of the place whilst maintaining a level of style was superb.
I stayed in both the "family suite" and "Superior Honeymoon Suite" and both rooms were fantastic in price and were extremely clean and well appointed. I dined within the hotel restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed all the different dishes that were on offer, in particular the local Maldivian dishes were a hit!
The WIFI was accessible; however, a little slow and something I have been advised by the managing director that is looking to be resolved very shortly. The beach is less than 30 secs away and fantastic for a snorkel or a swim! The hotel also offers return transport to the airport/Male ferry compound (adjacent to the airport) for a small fee ($20USD is pretty good...either that or wait in the heat for a bus...that may come). If you are looking for a really friendly, well appointed and clean place to stay and relax whilst in transit or just to escape on a budget....do not look past the Le Vieux Nice Inn....if you stay anywhere else on the island, you will really miss out! They even have a Nespresso machine in the lobby with complimentary pods/milk that you can help yourself to all through the night....they really do make you feel welcome and at home!
Thankyou to Abdul, Mujay and the rest of the staff at Le Vieux Nice Inn for making my time there awesome!
Thankyou - Oliver

Room Tip: Get the "Superior Honeymoon Suite" even if your not on a honeymoon...its well worth the mo...

The best thing about this place is the staff, they are kind of people who always ask how your day was and are up for a longer chat if you stick around. This type of niceness seems to spread to other guests, I was only here three nights and everyone was saying hi to me and chatting. Really lovely atmosphere. Room had everything you need really, clean, bathroom, cupboard etc, the only, thing was the safe, you need to leave a $100 deposit to use the safe, which is understandable, but it would be nice to see this information before arrival because I didn't have enough cash to leave $100 with them for the duration of my stay but my valuables remained safe without. Free self serve teas and coffees available all day and a choice of Maldivian breakfast, toast and cereal for breakfast. Good location too, it has it's own restaurant but there are plenty around it along with gift shops and corner shops. Right by the beach and walkable distance to the ferries. I had already organised my activities through Secret Paradise but the hotel staff offered to help me organise anything else if i needed it.

I was strongly recommended this Inn perhaps because the agent has existing contract with them and not the others like Askani and Rate Stay.

Anyway, with the expectation of just using it as an overnight stay hotel (our flight arrived late at night), we went with it since price for the Super Deluxe Honeymoon Suite looks decent for the seemingly spacious picture online.

Actual room size was <50% of what's visually depicted on their website.

Room seems clean but the terrible sewage stench won't go away after you use the toilet once. So we ended up not showering and minimised toilet usage and kept door closed. I said room "seems" clean because we never got a very clear look - dim yellow lights can't light up much things around at all. So fm the moment we're whisked into our tiny Mazda2 fm the agent, right to the hotel and through the night, we barely saw each other very clearly.

Breakfast is ok thou we only managed a quick bite bef time to catch seaplane.

Perhaps this is already the better hotels in this area, I'm not sure. But if we do make a 4th trip to Maldives again (last 2 trips on speedboat straight to resorts upon late arrival), I'd hope to arrive early and head straight to our resort...

We are staying here overnight before going on a 7 night catamaran tour tommorrow. This place is great.I would reccomend to anyone.It is located in a very local neighbourhood so you get to see the real Maldives. Nothing has been too much trouble, fantastic room, great food, staff lovely and so much effort has gone into this place. Well worth the money. Would definitely stay again

We were recommended and taken to this hotel by our travel agents Hummingbird Travel, due to my husband being taken ill on one of the islands we had to find somewhere to stay on the mainland, we had a nights stop over here before our flight home, what a pleasure it was to be taken care off by such professional and helpful people, nothing was too much trouble for them considering we just arrived with no forward reservation. Rooms well decorated clean and tidy, food well served and presented you also get a taxi to and from airport,
We even saw the pilots staying here so that says it all .....its a 5* from us

We had one night at Le Vieux Nice Inn as a stopover, flying out of Male in the morning. A very easy convenient option only 10 minutes away, and part of the same manmade island as the airport which meant transfer was simple. We were greeted as we got off the shuttle bus from the seaplane terminal, even though our flight was a couple hours late, and transferred back early in the morning with efficiency. The room was fine, clean and spacious, albeit relatively basic in decoration. Beds are average in terms of comfort. It is a little noisy as it is located on a main street- and we had a room which faced the front - so you might ask for a room which doesn't face the street. The restaurant in the lobby is a convenient simple option with very good food- with broad choices across Italian, Indian/Maldivian and grilled seafood, and American classics. Breakfast was pretty good with a variety of cold and hot choices- it was nice that they got the breakfast out ahead of opening (630 a) for us as we were leaving early. Great service all throughout. A little pricey, but overall worth it for the convenience and pleasant service.
