One of the best personal service in the world in to the smallest details. The owner management and the staff take care of you and the breakfast and the restaurant are just wonderful with high quality food. Its small familiar boutique hotel with a cousy small garden that can be a retreat from the busy streets in Male and you...

My husband and i stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on arriving in Male, before boarding a boat for a diving holiday. This hotel is centrally located, not that Male is particularly big. There are only 6 or 8 rooms in total at this hotel. The rooms were clean and well equipped and the staff were amazing, nothing was...

We were traveling through India then heading to a resort in Maldives for our honeymoon and we stayed at this hotel before we went to the resort. It was so comfortable, clean, and welcoming. The staff was so helpful and spoke great English so we were able to ask questions. They gave us a free upgrade because it was our...

Male is not a very clean city and I was a little concerned as we approach the hotel. I was immediately greeted by the owner, Thomas Stahl, and my concerns were laid to rest as I was escorted inside what is truly a Boutique Hotel. Everything was extremely clean, freshly painted with Thai based deco art appropriately displayed. I was...

Having only two days we decided to stay in Malé town and not one of the 100s of island hotel resorts. Possibly a mistake but our host Thomas could not have been more friendly and helpful. From the minute we arrived and received a very warm welcome, Thomas took over and became our travel agent, restaurateur and transport manager. The...

This is, perhaps, a house converted into a hotel. It is a place where you can just pass a night when you don't have an option. It has no neighbourhood. It is located inside narrow lanes. No regular restaurant. Breakfast served is brought from outside. Gives a dingy feeling. One GOOD point was the manager/Incharge. He was a very pleasant...

We were treated so well by the staff here at the hotel. The room was wonderful and clean and the food was ample and very tasty. I can see why the restaurant was rated #1 in the area. The operations manager gave us suggestions on what to see and do here in Male and helped us navigate through the ferries...

We stayed in Sala for 1 night before travelling to a resort to maximise the resort time. Airport pick up was smooth, great porter, amazing food for dinner and breakfast and service was second to none. I couldn't recommend highly enough!

We needed a place in the center of town to explore the Maledives capital. The Salah Hotel was a perfect choice. The rooms are very clean, although a bit small but well furnished. The Thai restaurant is outstanding and well known by the locals. And Raj the Indian manager is a wonder of helpful professionality. He would contact us to...

The hotel is run by a German expat. It is close to the harbor and the airport. I found it very clean, well decorated, and well run. I would like to stay there again if I happen to stay at Male. I stayed here while waiting for my transfer to my LOB dive boat. The hotel also has a good...
