Room was clean, good value for money in Male. The people are friendly and could not do enough to help us. Close walk from the air port ferry. Breakfast was fine. Orange juice, toast eggs and tea. What more do you want for the money. Great place to stay. Would recommend it to anyone traveling through Male.

Stuff was extremely lazy. We was expecting breakfasts and 7:00 as offered, but at 7:30 everybody was still sleeping. Very small and stuffy rooms, no normal windows. Terrible internet. Can work only for one night before/after flight if you have no other options.

I stayed here for five days over Christmas. The hotel is located a couple of blocks in from the ferry port, but not easy to find if you've just got off the airport ferry boat with your luggage. The reception staff were polite and helpfull. My room was on the fourth floor with no lift, and the view from the...

We stayed in this hotel for half a day, as we had flight in the evening, and came by morning ferry from Maafushi, where staff from Kaani Beach advised this hotel. It's 7 minutes to airport ferry, there is supermarket near. Rooms are very small, but clean.

This place would be have been a good nights accommodation if the room didn't smell so bad of damp and mould. The breakfast was nice and the bathroom was clean and the hot shower worked well. But I would never stay here again because the room was mouldy and stunk really bad! After 10 minutes in the room me and...

Not a great stay - management leaves a lot to be desired here. Rooms where smelly and moldy. Will never stay here again. The place to go if you can't find anything else. Service staff are honest and good, the front desk management are another matter. Be on your guard if staying here.

I am an expat working near Male and use to spend my free days in the capital. We always love to choose Kaani Lodge, since it has a great location - 5 minutes from the jetty - and you have one of the main roads - Sosun Magu , with supermarkets; small restaurants - around the corner. The rooms are...

I needed to arrive at Male one night before boarding a live aboard in case there was a delay of my flight. I was looking for an accommodation that was close to the jetty. As a solo traveler and just for one night, I didn't mind staying in Kaani Lodge. The walk was about 5 minutes depending on how fast...
