Central Boutique Inn is an established Male’ capital city of Maldives, and has been in operation for the last eleven years as Dhoveli Inn ,The Boutique Inn at Villa Shabnamee. After taking possession and a brief period of becoming established, we started operating roof top swimming pool for our in house guest and added a multi cuisine restaurant to ensure a steady flow of customers (tourists and locals) through its doors. The past two owners had owned the property for five or to six years each; the business has not been operated to its fullest capacity and was run down. Central Boutique Inn is now operated and managed by Holiday Night Pvt. Ltd a family owned company. Central Boutique Inn is a B&B boutique hotel located in Male’ city capital of Maldives was originally built in 2004. We offer twelve wonderfully furnished rooms to guests who want to stay at male’ city with attached bedrooms with room and toilet amenities. We have a full-service restaurant, a roof top swimming pool. The buildings have undergone a number of restorations and we plan more, possibly adding a spa and gym.

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 and ambience. Had booked through Agoda, and am very dissatisfied.

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 overpriced for what we got. The room did not look quite like the pictures online, it was small and everything felt damp. The aircon would fill the room with smoke from people smoking outside, and the breakfast was disappointing. Didn't get chance to try the pool and unfortunately we wouldn't stay here again.

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. There was a large English communication gap between the front desk staff. If you want to pay anything in UDS cash they expect the currency to be in pristine condition, meaning no tears or folding creases. This made it very difficult for me as I have $500 USD cash and it took them picking and choosing which $20 bills they wanted. The location is extremely convenient if you are taking a speedboat transfer. The breakfast was mediocre and not much variety. As mentioned before the email communication of this hotel is extremely poor.

Although that Male city not that big or even it's the main attraction in your trip to Maldives for sure so you will just stop here if you landing late and leave early morning . Slow wifi, small rooms, we pay for 1 night including breakfast but when we leave early morning that told us sorry we do no breakfast today ???!!! 75 $ for a night and i think it didn't worth. Don't expect a lot .Better to choice other place.

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 change our return stop over to Hulhumale instread of returning to Male as one night was enough for us.

I stayed in this hotel for one single night, and it was superb. From the time I entered to the lobby, until I check out, everything was smooth. 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 in room dinning/ prices reasonable and great taste - complementary tea coffee made me to rate this place as the best

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.
