Originally booked 4 nights, but hadn't heard good reports on male so decided to cut it short to 2 nights and very glad we did. On the positives, the staff were very friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for you, so absolute no complaints there. Also the location was good. Rooms were OK, but nothing special, but the housekeeping was... More

When in Male, you really dont have much to do but to enjoy your hotel. This is one of the best that you can find, so might as well enjoy what you have! Limited restaurants, however houses a decent restaurant for Italian food lovers.

We had to do an overnight atay at Male before taking the sea plane to final resort in Maldives. Thia was a great location near the airport. Room was clean but quite basic. Quite a big selection of food at breakfast. We had to leave at 6.15am and restaurant was ready before the official opening at 6am.

Hotel Jen is a very nice hotel. The rooftop view offers a great view of the ocean although it is not directly at the waterfront. The rooms are clean but the service is slow.
