“a hotel to transit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

if you arrive male in night and there is no speedboat or seaplane at that time. u can consider this hotel. the rate they charged is similiar with the resort in other island. furthermore, there is nothing to see or shop around in the town. since they imported all goods from other countries , things they sold is very expensive!
the service of the hotel is good. they will provide airport transfer.
the room is small...like hong kong !
no choice since the land is limited!

very small room and does not have a blanket. need to call room service to send so we can cover ourselves when sleeping....

The hotel is very, very small so basically just use it as a stop over before heading to your "real resort".

But their service was friendly enough to fetch and send you to/from airport. The price maybe fair for Male, but definitely more expensive than such hotels in other places.

We booked this hotel for overnight stay in Male mainly based on its top rating on TripAdvisor. And it is a unique little gem, really. I’m sure we will definitely stay at Octave whenever we visit Maldives.
It is the perceptive and friendly service that makes it worthwhile staying in this hotel. The owners and staff are social at just the right level and they go to great length to make you feel at home. At the hotel we were received warmly and the check-in process was very fast. The Reception staff provided a detailed map of Male City and recommended some places to visit.The room we had was spacious and pretty, the breakfast is good and hygienic. And as many people have recommended before, Hotel Octave is a place you would definitely come back to and recommend to your friends. Thank you very much for making our stay so pleasant!!!

Room Tip: Higher floors have better view of the city.

We booked the Hotel Octave for our first night in the Maldives before we ventured out to our island resort. While there are many options, we believe the Hotel Octave was a great choice. Thankfully, a member of the staff met us at the airport and helped us navigate the ferry to the main island. The staff were more than helpful and were very nice. Room (#402) was clean, roomy, had a washer and thankfully air conditioner (it was so humid there).

Overall positives:
1. Helpful/Nice staff
2. Airport & Resort transportation assistance
3. Clean roomy
4. Reasonable rate
5. Washer
6. Accept USD$

Overall areas for improvement:
1. Bathroom was a bit odd/small - the shower was not partitioned off, which meant that water went everywhere in the bathroom.
2. Bed was ok but a bit "noisy" when you make the slightest move

We would certainly stay here again! If you are looking for a room with a reasonable rate, helpful and nice staff I would suggest Hotel Octave!

Room Tip: #402 had a separate bedroom / living room / kitchen and a washer.

We stayed in this hotel for one night before leaving to one of those island resorts for a longer stay. Their airport pickup service is very efficient. It involves boat ride of about 10 min form the airport to Male, and a 10 min drive through narrow lanes to the hotel. At the hotel we were received warmly and the check-in process was very fast. The room is small and so is the bathroom. But we were not expecting a suite for that price. The room and the bed are clean. The breakfast was basic and just ok.

The airport pick up service (return trip) is included. This include the ferry trip from airport to the Male Capital Island. The trip takes approximately 8 minutes from airport to the capital by ferry. By the way, Octave Hotel pay for the ferry fare.

The breakfast is very simple but well, I'm ok with that as they serve the American breakfast.

The room is simple , not too big but very clean. All the amenities is fully provided. The bed is too hard but thank god. Im staying 1 night only as I'm transfer to another island in Maldives.

The hotel is located in one of the small streets in Male. We were received with big smiles, with a nice cold tea and by very helpful staff. There are nice restaurants nearby and the place is also very close to some of the tourist attractions in the city such as museums, stores and fish market. There is absolutely nothing "special" about the hotel, it is simply very adequate, clean, with good breakfast and very kind personnel. The transfer to the airport was coordinated totally by them...with no surprises. I strongly recommend the hotel as most of the other places we have seem are too expensive. Now, this may not be the best place if you want to visit Malé for longer than one day. But, then, there is not really a lot to see in Malé and the islands are far more attractive to visit.
