I had been for two nights in this place (I can't call it "hotel" or similar). It's absolutely overpriced (I paid 65$ per day taxes included) but the real price for this modest place should be no more than 25 or 30$ including taxes. Why? Well : a) The hotel has not lift (and the breakfast is served in the...

We needed a place to crash in Male after arriving on the late flight before we met our seaplane to our resort in the morning. Kaani lodge did the job - 5 minute walk from the airport ferry jetty, clean enough, friendly checkin guys, wifi (in the lobby only), hot shower. The aircon was pretty noisy but just did the...

Room - The room was clean and spacious enough for a maximum of two people with a small TV and a dressing table. NOTE - If you need WiFi it's only available on the first floor :) Washroom - The washrooms were clean but I do advice that you take your own toiletries and your own towel. The water pressure...

Family run basic hotel with about 12 rooms, Kaani Lodge has friendly staff and is only about 200 metres from where the airport ferries drop you off on NE Male' Island. Just turn left at the big Coca Cola bottle (coming from the Nasandhura jetty) on the harbour front and walk south crossing a couple of roads. Maintenance fairly lackadaisical...

The hotel is very beaten up. Looks ugly and old. That makes a terrible first impression. But the room, bathroom, sheets and towels were clean. It's located very near the ferry station, which is helpful for short stays before or after going to an island resort. The room does not have wifi and there's no elevator. Very very simple hotel,...

Location: the lodge is a mere 10 mins walk away from the jetty. Then again with Maldives only sizing up to 1km in area almost everywhere is reachable by foot. This also means convenient access to the airport. Amenities- tv, shower, fan lights all in working order. Other then a looking slightly tired furniture and its relatively hard bed, it's...

We stayed in this guesthouse 2 times between different transfers. This is a very functioning and simple place five minutes walking from the harbour with a good price/quality ratio: good staff at your disposal that help you to solve any problems.
