We arrived from Rasdhoo into Male early on Sunday morning. We were supposed to be picked up but arrived early and hadn't had a message for a couple weeks confirming whether pick up was going to happen so we just got a taxi instead. We arrived at the hotel and the receptionist was useless. She said the hotel was booked before even checking for our reservation in a small dingy lobby that was quite warm. Finally our reservation was found and we headed up in the tiny elevator to floor 5. I was shocked by the standard of the bedroom as looked nothing like the pictures. The floor was stained and dirty, the bed was hard, pillows looked dodgy and one in cupboard had been used, the AC was useless, there was dust everywhere, only one towel that didn't look clean, no bathmat and no toilet paper/soap/shampoo. We decided to go explore for awhile and then came back around lunchtime for a bit of a break; however we took our valuables with us as didn't feel comfortable or safe leaving them behind. When we got back we got another towel, this one was clean, and toilet paper. We were in our room and all of a sudden a guy from reception opened the door with a spare key with two people with him, apologized and shut the door. It was a very dodgy experience and made us feel VERY uncomfortable. We zip tied all our bags, took our valuables and left for the rest of the afternoon/evening (went to the Hulhule Hotel near airport which was really nice). Not a great sleep as bed wasn't good, AC was not working properly and kept wondering if someone was going to enter our room in the middle of the night. Checked out as soon as we could the next morning and left. I would not recommend staying here as it's not worth the exorbitant cost nor is it clean, friendly or a comfortable experience.
This is actually Baani Hotel and the photos in this listing is not what it is. Decent for overnight as it is near the airport ferry terminal. At this price, you may get a better deal with breakfast included. The airport pick up told us that we can get our money changed to Rufiyaa and a local prepaid SIM from Male, and thus rushed us to take the ferry to Male. After we checked in, we went on foot searching for money changer but to no avail. We then decided to take the ferry to the airport again to get our agenda done. The receptionist on duty was also less helpful of which one does not know where the MTCC ferry terminal to local island is and the other, we assumed he does not understand English, totally ignored us.
