Planktons Beach, Hulhumale
Convenient for an overnight stay.
Very basic hotel. The staff was friendly and breakfast was served on the beach, which is a nice touch. The only reason to stay here, though, is if you need an overnight spot before heading to your dive boat or other accommodation.

Reasonable for short stay
This was only hotel we stayed in Male'. It was in reasonable location near airport. There is not much in the area but there is a public beach just outside the hotel. It is a short walk to ferry to Male' City. The hotel sent a driver to pick us up from airport for no charge. We were welcomed and offered welcome drink.Everyone in hotel was friendly. The bathroom was good and the room very clean. The facilities are quite basic. Compared to other countries it seemed quite expensive. Breakfast was provided but is very basic. Bedding was clean, but some felt like part-artificial fibres (not pure cotton).

Very Good8.0
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.

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.

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.
