#3 of 45 in Male
Male’s newest budget-boutique hotel – Somerset INN – provides everything you need during your stay in Male: refreshingly cheerful accommodation, a playful flair, a dash of Maldivian hospitality and an approach that’s anything, but standard. Under the same management as The Somerset Hotel, we take pride in offering the city’s best value at budget rates. Our pared-back modern rooms pack a cost-conscious punch yet don’t scrimp on the necessities: free Wi-Fi (that actually works); complimentary bottled water; Nespresso machine; Flat screen tv; great inclusive breakfasts and 24-hour service from a team that, quite simply, ‘gets it’. Tucked away on a quiet street just a 10-minute stroll from the waterfront and city square, expect a happy welcome and an atmosphere that instantly reassures you that you picked the right place. We’ll extend complimentary transfers from the airport and our sister hotel’s bistro, direct you to all the best places in town, arrange tours with a difference and assist you with all your city needs. Expect small prices, a big personality and a few quirky details for a boutique experience on a budget.

From the pick up at the airport to the transfer to our room, the service was fast and easy. Cute little boutique inn nestled in the tight streets of Male with an updated and beachy/ocean themed décor. Room, though small, was clean, bed comfortable, and all the amenities needed for an overnight stay were present. Breakfast was delicious and there was plenty of room in dining area. Hallways are tight with luggage and only one little elevator but we were never kept waiting long. Easy transfer back to airport to catch our main resort boat. Would highly recommend this place for quick airport layovers!

The hotel’s staff is amazing! not only super friendly and helpful, but super efficient! their service is equivalent to 5 star service. You don’t have to explain everything to them in great detail! they get it, especially Mishfaau A! My two stays at the hotel was a bit complicated. he was a super star: coordinating early breakfast, arranging airport transport, early check in and early check out, storing luggage, etc. Everything worked out perfectly!

The hotel is clean and nicely decorated. Staff are excellent. Breakfast was filling. I stayed one night after a boat tour to bridge me to my flight. They picked us up (I think guests usually take ferry from airport to a waiting car and then some walking but there were 4 of us so a taxi took us all to the hotel). For my travel to airport they offered a taxi for 10$US. I declined and used the free transportation which was perfect. Basically they walk you to a corner near the hotel and and wait with you for a taxi. The driver takes you to ferry and buys ticket and my driver waited with me for the ferry (only a 3 minute wait in my case) The ferry is fast and you get good views of the city. Cars can’t easily navigate the streets due to narrow roads hence the need to walk from hotel to corner and back. Please be aware that Male is a series of windy streets with loads of people and bicycles. I got lost going back to the hotel after dinner and panicked a bit. But the staff at the sister property Somerset Hotel were wonderful. The front desk worker drove me to my hotel on his scooter.

Spent one night in this hotel located in Male city. Free pick up by hotel with about 15 mins taxi ride. Simple breakfast packed for our departure in early morning. New, clean and quiet room. Worth the money.
