          Amazing staff, clean rooms, great service”

          We booked this hotel because we had two days to kill in Male before our resort plane departed. From the pickup at the airport to the transfer back to the airport, the staff went out of their way to make sure we had a stress-free experience. Since our plane departed before our laundry was ready, they actually coordinated with our resort hotel and dropped off the laundry to a sea plane later in the day so we go our laundry at our new resort. They did it all with no complaints and all smiles. The rooms were small, but very clean. Air conditioner worked great. We never used the pool on the roof, but we did have a peak and it looked very well maintained. Only good things to say about this boutique inn!

          Met our needs”

          As a 3 Star hotel the Central Boutique met all our needs. My husband was working in Male and we found this hotel to be in an ideal location. The staff are exceptionally helpful and pleasant. We found that if we needed anything it was necessary to ask and the task would be done. Our first stay here was for 6 consecutive nights and the room was not serviced during this time which was not a problem to us however we needed to ask for fresh linen. Breakfast was basic yet there was plenty of food - again we needed to ask to be served though we had told them the night before the time we would be available. We found it necessary to have an extra 15minutes available to allow them time to set up. There were occasions I requested breakfast in our room and they had no problem with this. The pool (one of only 2 in Male) is great. It's necessary to book a time but I didn't find it a problem getting the times I requested. The redeeming feature of this hotel is definitely the staff and the pool. Ask and (normally) you will receive. We suspect staff have never had the opportunity to participate in a 'hospitality course' as they have little idea of the expectations of travellers and the comments above have more to do with lack of hospitality education than 'bad service'. We would stay here again.

          Good in general”

          We stayed 2 nights in Male to discover the local culture before departed to our resort. Central Boutique staffs were very friendly and helpful, they pointed out the interested places to visit and assisted me to arrange many thing like taxi, airport pick up and contact our resort for transport time to the island. Room is clean, breakfast is basic but not bad. The only bad thing is the wifi, it was very very slow and just lost connection all the time, however after staying other places in Maldives I realized it just seems like the same problem for everywhere so its not a thing to blame on the hotel. In general, we have got what we have paid and I was satisfied.

          Location, being only 5 minutes from work and close to several restaurants, friendliness of staff, pool

          I stayed at Central Boutique Inn for 2 weeks whilst on business. Nightly rate was considered reasonable for location, room size etc. Staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Room was serviced every 2 - 3 days, but could be more regular on request. I didn't have any meals other than breakfast there which was generally cereal, sausages and omelette, toast and jam, juice and coffee. Pastries were also provided on occasion. Would consider staying there again next visit, particularly given availability of roof-top pool for evening wind-down.

          Overpriced”

          Positives for this place were that we got greeted at the airport and taken back to the hotel via ferry and taxi. The staff are very helpful and friendly, but just like everywhere in Male, this place was overpriced for what we got. The room was small and everything felt damp. The aircon would fill the room with smoke from people smoking outside, and the breakfast was disappointing. Didn't get chance to try the pool and unfortunately we wouldn't stay here again.

          Good value for money. They send us breakfast to our room. Shops walking distance. Everything was good. They even contact our next resort to arrange transportation.

          Quirky little hotel with great staff”

          Lovely staff, good location, quiet room

          Me and my son had a lovely stay for a few days-nice little hotel- room was good but not exactly deluxe as described however the warm, helpful staff made up for this. Book a double and not a twin though- they are much bigger!

          OK value for money”

          Possibility to check in earlier, hotel staff helping to arrange transport to the ferry to airport, comfortable room

          In General this hotel has a good location in proximity to the airport ferry and staff helps to arrange the transport to the ferry at almost no cost. Staff was helpful. We were looking forward to use the pool, but we were told that it cannot unfortunately be used due to problems with pipes. I would say it´s a little bit pricy, but OK to stay for one/two nights before transfering from/to airport.

          No Soap, shampoo or TP. No window to the outside in the room. Difficult to get from the airport to the hotel. ”

          If you are in transit waiting for your seaplane to your island the next day, stay at one of the hotels close to the airport on that same island as the airport.
