We stay this hotel before we went to island and on our way back home, both stay are plasent, it is locate near to all government house, walking distant to almost everywhere, it is a small island anyway. A lot of motor bike, all merchandise are made in China, food and coffee are pretty nice. This hotel is very easy access to all boats to island, people are friendly, budget price for local boat. Traders Hotel got style, it is part of wonderful Shangri-La group family, the services is as good and up to high standard. Yet, room rate is affordable for everyone.

Room Tip: Ocean view room will give you unforgetable experiences

Arrived in Male, from Singapore in the early afternoon. Their high speed boat was very very pleasant and quick! Easy 1 minute drive to hotel from dock.

Check in was a little uncomfortable, due to the fact that I reserved a room for me and my partner, with one king bed. Being two men, they were either confused or very uncomfortable with this arrangement (understandably - due to their religion). This made us very uncomfortable. They kept trying to get a room with two bed, even though we indicated the room was fine. I should have respected their beliefs and got a room with two bed. That would have made the whole experience much better. After check in, we were basically so uncomfortable and felt we couldn't go anywhere without getting "looked" at oddly.

Otherwise, the good. Clean hotel, very nice hotel. The room was SMALL, but still modern and had a nice view. The service at the roof bar was horrible the day we went, but we were so hungry and uncomfortable, we dared not leave the hotel. Had dinner in the restaurant, which was a buffet......and very good!! Definitely should give that a try! We REALLY wanted some beers, but being a dry country....we settled for NA Beer......acceptable for a night.

Check out was good and the ride back to airport fine. Next time, we won't stay the night in Male, but go immediately to the resort.

The hotel is very good and well managed.
If you have to stay in Male, it's a very good choice.
The dinner was good and has a very elegant and nice presentation.
The teem at the dinner is very nice. We had very good time there.

We arrived male late and thought we may stay here for a night to save some $$
Disliked this hotel... they kept pushing breakfast on us staff attitude aint great..
And there was a creepy walk from the docks to the hotel, The hotel should get those people pulling you into their souvenirs shops away from the hotel
When i checked out i settled the bill got a 50 dollar note back, she looked at it for a while, but said nothing .I sat down and waiting for the transport car to arrive, thinking i needed small change to tip the bell boys i went over to the counter and asked them to break that 50, a different reception said this money is invalid in Male, it’s been marked. I asked the same girl to come back out but he kept explaining to me that he doesn’t know where I got the money from… Considering I only had 100’s at that point I know I didn’t make a mistake

Completely useless hotel staff and she knew what she did… Careful guys

Room Tip: Just cough up the extra bucks and stay on your island

Nobody on vacation should ever consider staying in Male for longer than one hour on transit to the island hotel. It's too noisy, dirty and puts you in a wrong mood.

Too make things worse, you should just get to the hotel that it's not worth it.
Basically, Traders hotel is a basic airport transit hotel (at least, for Korean Air staff I bumped in on check-out) that charges you 5 star prices with no value attached - even breakfast costs you extra. A private transfer to and from airport is a nice touch, though for me it's just a fun to get on public ferry, especially just for 10 to 15 min.

My advise for you would be to stay in Sommerset hotel - a new property for a fraction of Traders' hotel price tag. Never again!

Book this hotel for overnight before our trip to other resort, for this price I can better have other accommodation in Maldives, the staff there is not very active however we have a good sleep, anyway better don't stay in male if you plan a trip.
