Nice small hotel. The room is small, but I guess it is standard at this area. The location is very convenient to access the dock and activities. Staff is very friendly and ready to help for any requests. Enjoyed the stay and would recommend to friends for sure.

Exceptional 10.0
On the week of June 30, 2019 our family of four stayed two nights at the Somerset hotel, Malé, Maldives before going to Hurawalhi resort, Maldives. The hotel is located in the center of the city and has easy access to many local interests (anyway the city or the capital is less than 4 square miles). The size of the room is average, clean and comfortable. The air condition worked well on this particular hot and humid weather. All the staffs are incredibly helpful, courteous and professional. The room has two beds but our daughter wanted to stay with us so one staff made a sofa bed. The hotel also offers very nice and formal breakfast in a restaurant next door with many choices and very delicious. You can even order your own breakfast from the menu. As we needed to catch an early seaplane, the hotel staff at front desk gave us prepared breakfast bag at around 5 o’clock, and one staff helped us to get a taxi, then found out that it could not hold our four luggage and immediately called another taxi. A very thoughtful hotel and try to help the guests as much as they can. Overall it turned out to be a nice and fond experience for its friendly and helpful staff. We strongly recommend this hotel.

Fair 4.0
Overpriced. Rooms are cramped. The shower is open and right next to the toilet--everything is wet and a mess. The service was bad. I slipped and fell on a wet floor in the lobby. My computer broke. Didn't get the care and concern that I guest should received. No adjustment on my bill, not even a free meal...I wouldn't stay there again. The employees were nice.

Spotted Towels
The towels were not very clean. There were dark spotting... definitely not a multi star standard.
