“Recommend this hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2011

This hotel is located back from the main road & jetties.
The rooms are clean and although quite small are furnished very well with desk, fridge, safe & tv included.
There are nice touches in the room including an oil burner which is lit each night. We requested a kettle which was duly supplied and they provided us with a mobile phone to call the Owners at any time. The bathroom is very clean although every now & again there is a drain smell typical of this part of the world.
We had the 8USD breakfast one morning & the food was good & plentiful. The security is excellent.
We spent 5 nights here over 2 visits and would absolutely stay again.

Hazim, the manager is really nice. small hotel in male, good enough for one night stop. FREE wifi everywhere inside the hotel, heavy stairs to access to the rooms. A little bit noisy at night. Comfortable and complete for 100 dollars/night. A no problem hotel.

I had been to Maldives several times and when you come to Maldives.. especially when visiting it’s Capital – Male’… don’t expect too much. The city is very small…buildings are not skyscrapers…
I have tried the a few hotels in Male. Most of the room size is small. But comparing the room of Dace to other hotels… the space you move around is enough. No tourist stays in the city I guess for more than 3 days… since there is no so much to see. This is more of a transit area – waiting for your flight, transfer to resort or just simply to try the city.
The Hotel offers a Double Bed, Working table, Open Clothes Hanger, Safe Deposit Box, Flat Screen TV and a bathroom. I agree that you have to take the stairs.. what is 3 flights up! Rooms are clean. Security is likewise a good point. The main door is only access through a Magnetic Card that goes with your room key. No one can just come inside the building. The Hotel is just around the corner where another “big” hotel can be found. Walking distance to the restaurants and shops.
Can’t say anything about the food offering since I have no chance to try their food… But good restaurants can be found in Male like Jade Bistro, Seagull (Ice Cream are yummy), Aoili and Thai Wok.
Don’t be bothered about the construction is ongoing beside the hotel but it’s only during the day time.
DACE would be a good choice to stay in a small city…

Perfect little hotel if you need to stay in malé city. We had very little time in the area and the owners did everything they could to help us make the most of our time. Don t hesitate to ask them for info on the activities that are possible (fishing trips, scuba diving ..)
they will take the time to help you, that's for sure. Rooms are small but big enough. Very clean!
