This is an excellent hotel.
After a long flight in to the Maldives I wanted a nice cool shower, ice cold AC, and a comfortable bed.
I decided to stay two nights and catch up on rest!
The room and bathroom room surprised me double the size of anything on the beach. The chef from Sri Lanka was very inviting and introduced himself to every guest as they entered the breakfast area with both inside AC dining and rooftop dining.

I will be using this hotel for transfer days that I fly in and out of Male. Ferry is $1.00 USD per person or taxi is $5.00 USD or they have a free hotel van.

My flight was canceled so the airline put us up at the Champa Central, and included dinner and breakfast. We were taken from the airport to the hotel by van. The young women in the reception were friendly and got us checked in quickly. There was a nice buffet dinner on the 9th floor. My room was fairly basic but more than adequate. The bed was comfortable, the wifi worked well and there was a TV. The bathroom was a decent size and included toiletries. In the morning, there was a buffet breakfast on the 9th floor with fruit, eggs, cereal, breads, etc. As promised, we were taken back to the airport, this time by taxi.

We visited the hotel while back on our visit to Maldives.

The hotel is located in the center of the island and anywhere is easily accessible on foot. Hotel is a very old one but renovated recently. There is some wear and tear in the hotel but not a lot. The staff in the hotel are very friendly. Starting from the check in, the staff was eagerly helping us. The kitchen staff we met in the restaurant were also very friendly.

The food we had in the hotel including the breakfast buffet and other snacks were satisfactory. The rooms were not big as the rooms we see in other countries, however, considering my previous experience, the size is standard for the Malé city.

Generally hotel was cleane, however, there is a room for improvement in the cleanliness. One of our friend's room had no working power outlets for him to charge his devices. The available power outlets were not working properly. Roads around the hotel are not very big (compared to roads in other countries but typical for Malé) and has lots of construction sites around the hotel. But it is just few minute walk from the famous Majeedhee Magu.

This is not a vacationing hotel, it is more like a motel, but I can recommend this hotel for a short stay in the Malé city.

We stayed at Champa Central Hotel 6 nights as needed to be in Male for personal reason. Perfect location in centre of Male, close to all shops, very good rooms (we even got an upgrade as we had 3 kids with us!), good breakfast and overall food, super clean and comfortable beds. But special thanks goes to hotel staff, who were ready to help wuth whatever request we had (and there were a lot of requests from our side for transport services, help with products and medicine purchase, etc).
So location very recommended for stay whenever you need a hotel in Male.

Swetha and Hidhaayah from the receptions are very nice and helpful during my stay. I arrived late at night and felt unfamiliar with the place but Swetha was very welcoming and assuring. She even called me to say early happy birthday after seeing my passport.

Vineeth from the kitchen was also nice. He reccomended me to try Maldivian breakfast which was really good.

Meals are delicious. 100% satisfied on foods (Quality , appearance and taste is very good)
Even the room condition was good, there were no hot water provided after first night. Though we complained it to receptionist that was not corrected until we left.
That was the only problem we had.

A convenient and well located overnight stay. Transfers and breakfast included made this stay even more comfortable. The room is spacious with a comfortable bed, great cooling AC and a large well serviced bathroom.with a rain shower head, perfect after a long flight. Hotel staff were welcoming at both checkin checkout and at breakfast. The welcome drink at arrival was nice added bonus. The room is presented well but does have evidence of tiredness in need of updating. The hotel lobby is comfortable and welcoming. We would recommend an overnight stay here.

I assume you'll arrive at Male airport. There's a 24 hr ferry across to the town. If you give the hotel notice of your flight number and likely arrival they will send their vehicle to collect you at the Quayside

Hi, if you are landing here in the night, you have to take boat to male city , so better you stay in airport island in the night and next day morning you can start your vacation, or if you prefer after travelling comfort ofcourse it will be good to have a hotel in male city though its a little boat ride to city and any taxi will drop you to the hotel for the cost of 25MVR.
