“great staff”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

I can say that the rating of the hotel itself is average more like poor. Food is not so good, beds are average. It would be good if the owner make renovation like painting the walls, refresh all the bed sheds and mattresses with new one, to get new towels, and to have shampoo and shower gel in the room.It would be nice if some small elevator is available because it is not easy to climb on the 4 or 5 floor on such a narrow and dark stairway. Staff was great. Everybody were warm, smile, ready to help if you need anything. Keep doing your best job boys !! . Hopefully if these changes are done this small hotel can achieve better rating.

This hotel is in need of major refurbishing! Cracked and messy scuffed walls all throughout the hotel. No elevator with a dark, narrow, and unventilated stairway. Bathroom towels were obviously overused, old & stained! No bath mats. Bathroom and room were not cleaned properly if it was cleaned at all! The pictures on travel sites were very deceiving! What was to be an overnight stay turned into me thoroughly disinfecting and cleaning the bathroom just to be able to have a shower and head out after a few hours! Only plus was staff was pleasant.

Room Tip: If you are not a picky traveler then this is the hotel for you.

The stay was okay, stable wifi, average food served, the room was comfortable. And the best part of my staying experience here is the staff! They have really nice, helpful and friendly staffs here. They greet you whenever they see you and I really feel at home.

Here we pay around 60 dollars for a night at special rate, we didn't expect much, it is a room which is very cheap, white wall painting, old fashion toilet, small and thin pillow, blanket is a bed sheet, small tv hanging at the corner of the room, not very clean desk and chair....No view (also no window) from some rooms. There are no choice at reasonable price in Male, what to do !?

I would highly recommend this hotel. It's easy to find, it's near from the jetties and main shops and the room is worth your money. They have free internet but it's not much reliable, I was staying in the 3rd floor and net was very slow. And they don't have elevators, get your legs ready for the long way up if you're in the higher floors. They have all the amenities needed in a room, a reef, water heater, cable flat screen tv and a great shower room. Bed was fine although pillows were too small and blankets were low quality. The downside during my stay was that there was an event in the artificial beach and it was soooo noisy.

-Rooms are not well maintained and humid
Wi - fi is free but Limited internet access in the second floor, you need to go down to lobby for better connection
No safety box

-Good location, if you are catching international flight or moving to island
5 minutes away from jetty number 1
Friendly staff
In comparison with other hotels in male Surf View is affordable
