We were in for a surprise. Finally we were told that the property would be shutting doen in a few days time. The Hotel is in an alley where taxi does not go, so you have to carry your luggage for some distance. The rooms are small and shabby, the good though was good. Highly priced compared to the amenities...

Positives for this place were that we got greeted at the airport and taken back to the hotel via ferry and taxi. They also booked us a taxi in the morning to go to the villingili ferry terminal for our public ferry to Rasdhoo. The staff are very helpful and friendly, but just like everywhere in Male, this place was...

For $85 USD, I expected a lot more. I was greeted and picked up at the airport, however it took 7 email communications to final have the hotel confirm this. The room was nice but the sheets on the bed had stains all over them. There was no hot water in the room which made the morning shower extremely uncomfortable....

An average place to stop over. V small roof top pool with only one sun lounger and a couple of seats. Room was large and clean although smelt a little damp. No view except over the back of other buildings but that isn't unusual in Male. Didn't eat breakfast so can't comment. Good Airport pick up/transfer. Ok. We decided to...

Friendly reception, private dinning ( room service ) was excellent. I did not use pool so I can not comment on. - price is reasonable - beautiful location - great options for...

Very simple hotel. The room was small and clean. They were very accommodating. Picked me up from the airport and then got me back free of charge. Also brought breakfast to my room and walked me around town to find something for dinner.

Small rooms, with basic mini bar, wifi, hot water in shower and air conditions. I won't say the room was spotlessly clean. Helpful stuffs. Almost on the main road majhedee magu, so location wise really good. Helpful stuff.

I picked up Central Boutique Hotel for the only reason that it had a swimming pool. Then I picked a room at the top floor, 5th floor, Room 502 - a double deluxe room. The room had a lovely AC that was new and nothing makes me happier than being in a room that is cool enough. Apart from that,...
