  • 8.0.Very good

    Our flight landed at 9am and we were able to check in early... that was greatly appreciated after 48hrs of travel. This area of Male is still under construction but we felt safe even walking around at 11pm. Lots of food, cafes, shop options within walking distance. Would love to come back in a few years to see the growth of this part of the city.

    Service is amazing

    Can't say much about the hotel because we didn't end up staying there since there was a bit of a mix up of over-booking so Ayesha (I think that was her name) booked us into another hotel for the night. She picked us up from the airport to drop us off ensuring that we had breakfast organised and called to confirm pickup in the morning as well. The service is seriously above and beyond amazing. We didn't hear very good reviews about staying on the mainland before going to a resort but I would definitely recommend Ayesha and Star Shell.

    Staffs are extremely kind, mr. John and Muhamed were always smiling and trying to help, very good hospitality. Room is great for the price, breakfast has toasts, eggs and sausage.

  • 6.0.Good

    The hotel was average for the price we paid for: it included free shuttle to and from the airport and breakfast but no other amenities. Our blanket was left crumpled in the closet which was disappointing.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms and bathrooms were visually appealing. A/C was either on full blast or off and there are only sheets provided in the room, so you end up hot or cold all night. The bathroom floor was all wet when we checked in which was a little odd. Sound proofing is non-existent as you can hear everything from the lobby echoing up the staircase. All in all if your expectations are inline with the area and the price this is a perfectly fine option for the night.

    包來回接送, 職員親切友善, 房間整潔, 夜機到達停留一晚的好酒店. 早餐有煎雙蛋腸仔多士一份, 以這個房價包接送計已經不能挑剔.

    古く、狭いです。トイレは臭く、アメニティ一切なし。タオルはバスタオルのみで、水もミネラルウォーターではなく沸騰させた水?怖くて飲めませんでした。 送迎付きでしたが、迎えに1時間待たされました。 到着後2回も連絡入れ、たった空港からホテル10分の距離でなぜ?タクシーで行けばよかった。 挙句に日本みたいに時間きっかりとはいかないからと、、、オススメしません。
