I stayed at Traders Hotel for 2 nights beacause i wanted to know Male city before I go back home.
This hotel is the best Hotel in Male, and it offers the same facilities that others maldives luxury resorts offers, like free boat transfer Airport-Male-Airport, good restaurants inside the hotel, well decorated ambiance, and much more!
The hotel has a nice pool and terrace to take same beautiful photos.
If you want to stay in Male, or you have to wait your flight there, I recommend you to stay at this hotel.

This Traders is not as good as the one in DXB, but it is nice. The rooms are nice, the staff is good, the breakfast is great, the location is perfect.

Once I had a look at other hotels in Male (and I had to stay in one) I would stay here again. Other than little boutique hotels which can be hard to get into, this really is the only nice place to stay in the capital. It is too bad that UN DSA doesn't actually cover the costs.

Room Tip: Have them show you the room before you accept it. The airconditioning smelled really bad in the fir...

The location is very convenient for travellers who stopover at Male, it is just 5 minutes by boat from the airport and just 2 minutes by walk from the Male pier. If you wanna go to walk around in the fish market and fruit market, it just take you 5 minutes by walk.

The facilities inside were still in new status and the staff there were friendly and polite. You won't regret to stay there for your trip.

At the end of a couple of long flights we were a bit aprehensive about a stopover in Male.
We shouldn't have worried. We were met by friendly staff at the airport & quickly transfered to a waiting boat & efficently escotred to the Hotel Reception.
On arrival we found a group of 12 Italian tourists lining up ahead of us & to our delight, more staff quickly appeared & quickly got us settled in.
The rooms are clean, modern & quiet. The room service was timely & delicious.
We had a very early start the following day & found the dining room staff friendly & the buffet choices suprisingly good given the pre dawn hour.
Check out & transfers were just as seemless as the way in.
Can't fault this Hote. Highly recommended.

Had the last two days of a business trip at this hotel, having had had the last week on one of the holiday islands. A fantastic hotel, superb customer service and wonderful rooms. Excellent value for money. Just remember the island is alcohol free!

Room Tip: 11th Floor or above, great views

Kudos to the Trader's Hotel staff for a seamless transition from the Male airport to the hotel and then to the resort we were going to. Our flight arrived late in the evening and were met by the Trader's Hotel staff who took our luggage and walked us over to the hotel (100 metres). The check-in was quick and easy and the staff was pleasant and professional. The room was spacious and clean; the bed was very comfortable. The view was disappointing; however, we were only staying at the hotel for 1 night and then off to another resort early in the morning. We ventured up to the roof top deck where the view was amazing and the swimming pool looked inviting (since its quite humid in Male). Breakfast was not included in our hotel package but we did eat at the hotel's cafe (at the main entrance) - large assortment of breakfast foods and beverages - prior to our departure to another resort. No doubt, I would definitely recommend to anyone to stay at Traders Hotel when they arrive in Male for their vacation.

Stayed for a night before going out to resort. Excellent service with transfers to and from airport included. Room lovely and breakfast buffet excellent.

Only let down was the view. We forked out extra for an ocean view king room and the view was disappointing. Looking at a thin strip of blue over the hotel in front and off to one side. We were on the 8th floor. I imagine from 10-12 the view would be superb.

Room Tip: Need to be well above level 4 to get a real ocean view
