2/10 Poor

The worst hotel I have ever stayed in.
I had been sent by my company to review this property as a potential hotel for our staff to stay while in Male. I was quite excited for my stay given the standards that this brand is known by and as a capital city hotel, I assumed my stay would be ideal. Sadly however, from first stepping in to the hotel, things did not look good. As much as the staff service was good, the hotel looked very dated, in desperate need for refurbishment and looked very worn. I arrived just before midnight and was shown to my room. The room smelled terrible, probably linked to the AC covered in dust. I tried to settle after an exhausting flight, though couldn’t stand the smell and the room just looked nothing like the photos. I then was moved to a different room where yes the room didn’t have a smell to it, though was very worn. There was still dirt on the carpet that hadn’t been vacuumed and I found bits of hair in the bathroom. The bedroom I’m assuming had been cleaned, though rather quickly and that made me quite concerned regarding the cleanliness overall. The mattress was very old and worn, lamp shades and curtains covered in dust and very little ventilation in the room. The shower head was covered in limescale and ultimately I checked out first thing in the morning. I would advise anyone not to go here and I only went as I knew the brand name. It’s nothing like the others. There are much better, cheaper hotels to consider. The worst hotel I’ve ever stayed in.

This hotel was ideal for my purposes. I had three days after my scuba diving trip and needed somewhere to stay between that trip and my flight home. The hotel was located in the middle of Male and very close to the airport. All of the services that they offered met my needs. They had the ablity to let me stay on the last day until 7:00PM. I also was given my room when I arrived early on the first day. The staff of the hotel were outstanding in all departments. They even were able to get me a covid test so I could return to USA. I highly recommend this hotel. THe resturant at the top of the hotel was encellent.

2/10 Poor

cockroaches and cigarettes/ash from prior guests in our room, TV didn’t work and sparked dangerously when we tired to turn it on. We booked 4 nights, stayed 1 and left. This place is disgusting and does not deserve the Shangri-La brand, name or affiliation.
