“Average business hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2012

Stayed here for four nights during a business trip. I only read the review below about the bed bugs after the reservation was made; so, naturally I was quite nervous about staying here. It turned out that the hotel is not bad at all considering its price. It’s a pretty standard business hotel, nothing fancy but the facility is adequate. The staff were helpful in getting a taxi for us every morning. The breakfast offered good choices. The hotel is conveniently located within a two-minute walking distance from the airport taxi pier. And no, I didn’t encounter any bed bugs in my rooms, neither did my two other colleagues. It's likely that I would stay here again on my next return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor, 5th Floor up..

The only reason I gave another rating than 1, is because they are good enough to let us check out until 1600.
My stay was not satisfying, hotel has no clue about touristic places (hey... its MALDIVES) and they gave us direction to an island only for local, and no id whatsoever.
All the employee, had no smile. The TV remote doesnt work, and when asked for new one, workers came with long face.
What really irritate me, they have no id about things to do in Maldives and even gave wrong direction to one of the island.
One trip is more than enough to this hotel

Mookai Hotel has the advantage of being located right next to the ferry terminal in Male'. However, the quality of room allotted depends on your luck. It could be a damp, poorly lit room or a bright cheerful room with a wonderful view. Rooms are fairly small. There are much better options available elsewhere on the island if one is willing to compromise on the view.

Conveniently located and close to the ferries, the hotel seemed a good option for my 4-day business trip to Male. The first room I got was small and lack of space made the stay not very pleasant.The breakfast table too, was substandard. On top, I felt that the room was not cleaned properly, so I asked, the next day, for another room. The other room was significantly bigger and well maintained. So, I dismissed the idea of shifting ton another place. The night however, was a nightmare. The room was fully infested with bedbugs which I, in the middle of the night, found out would have completely attacked me allover. I asked for new bedsheets and a cleaning but could not really enjoy the rest of the night. THe hotel management next day in the morning did not bother to be pro-active or check in any way. I would surely not recommend this place to anyone, unless this problem is not solved with vigorous treatment..

Located at less than five minutes walking distance from the Jetty, it is ideal for connections to and from the airport irrespective of what time of the day/night you land.
The rooms can be pretty small unless you get one of the better series... the 07 series is good, especially on the seventh floor.
The staff is pretty friendly and helpful.
All in all reasonable for a very short stay on the island.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms ending in 07... these are the better ones.

Conveniently located for access to and from the airport via water taxi. The rooms were quite small, but comfortable enough for a stay of a few nights. Breakfast was available in the hotel immediately opposite, as was a buffet lunch and dinner. Mookai is quite convenient for local facilities.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor with sea view.

Like a lot of people using this hotel, we arrived into Male on a late night flight and needed somewhere to stay before being transferred to our resort the next day.
Locating the hotel at night was easy, just a quick $1 USD ferry ride from the airport and only a few hundred meter walk from the ferry wharf. The location was perfect for use as a transit hotel, we very relieved to not have to walk around Male late at night dragging our luggage looking for a hotel!
Check in was straight forward and the lady even informed us of the resort transfer plans for the next day.
We were given a room on the 7th floor, which was spacious for our needs and the room and bathroom were clean. The furnishings are bathroom quality were adequate and matched the low rate we paid for this hotel (low compared to traders and other hotels on the island).
The bed was a little hard and the bedding's minimal, the room was perfect for a 1 or 2 night budget stay but I wouldn't exactly spend a week here.
If looking for a hotel for a 1 night transit stop without paying a fortune then Mookai Hotel is perfect. The location alone makes it ideal for this purpose.

Room Tip: If you can get a room on a high floor.
