Very good 8.0
Friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms
I would give a 5 out of 5, for this one night stay except for some safety issues. The staff was great, room clean, all was as expected. The safety issues were that the bathroom window was falling out, and the stairs were uneven and slippery. My husband fell but fortunately he’s athletic and didn’t get too hurt. Overall it was a clean, easy overnight stay and I would recommend.

great choice for short stay
Great choice for an overnight stay near the airport. Nice room clean with good AC. Only drawback was that there did not seem to be hot water. Nice breakfast included- served on the beach.

Fair 4.0
One night more than enough
Due to timings of our home flight we had to make an overnight stop in Male after leaving our Maldive island (Komandoo). Despite contacting the hotel beforehand, no-one was there to meet us. Eventually, (nearly two hours later) someone appeared to collect us (no apology) and we got to the hotel after dropping off some other guests at different hotels. Putting this behind us we looked forward to getting to our room and relaxing. There is no lift and a very narrow staircase, so two staff helped with our luggage. It was only a one man job as we could carry the rest, but of course both stood waiting at the door for a tip. Wouldn't have minded giving a tip if they had explained something about the room, but alas no. We then spent the next hour or so traipsing up and down the stairs to get someone to come up and explain how things worked, such as the TV, as there were no instructions and there was no signal with just switching it on. There was no hot water not even luke warm for the shower, both in the evening nor the morning.The bed was very hard and unfortunately for us we were next door to a noisy family who arrived late at night. Distinct lack of soundproofing between the rooms! The room itself was small & clean, but tired and nothing like the photos on various websites. The breakfast was poor, but nice being served at a small table on the beach. The return journey to the airport was good and on time. The shuttle is NOT free. Overall, this was not value for money.

It was a short stay for us on the way from resort islands to an international flight. The staff at Planktons were very helpful in all respects. The room was nice for the budget and you can’t beat the location, across from the action on the beach. The wifi worked great too, always a plus.

Ok for a layover before transfer or flight home
After a stay in a resort, we booked a hotel in Hulhumale (for the 6-7 hours of layover in Male before our international flight) instead of Male City itself because it is just a car-ride (as opposed to a boat trip) to the airport.

Comfortable clean hotel
Nice hotel, very good stay. Room had aircon, a comfortable bed, a kettle with tea/ coffee. Ensuite was very clean with a good shower towels and toiletries provided. Locations wise hotel is beach front and only a 5/10 minutes from the airport so ideal to stay at before or after a flight. The hotel did collect us from the airport but at an additional cost of $7 per person which worked out more expensive then getting a taxi from the airport, however they did drop us to the ferry the next day free of cost.
