Fabulous 8.6 From 177 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Perfect for short stays. Cosy little gem.
The staff and customer service was amazing. The room was small but perfect for a business trip or short stay. We arrived late in the afternoon and it was Ramadan so nothing was open until after 8.30pm. We tried to eat in the hotel restaurant but they had a private funtion so we then tried to order room service but was told the kitchen was busy until after 7.00pm with the function. We understood but perhaps should of been given another option as we were starving. When we finally did get room service the food was delicious. We had a very early check out so the hotel arranged take away breakfast for us and a hotel rep even escorted us to the airport in the taxi. Male itself isn't the nicest area but the hotel is lovely and we felt safe and comfortable.

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

Good 6.0
Overall Rooms were spacious, good for a family of 4. Bathrooms were fine but not great. The restaurant was good. Nearby not much to do. Only a place to rest before and after you come from resorts in other islands or after good day of diving or water sports.

Conveniently Located Lovely Hotel
We had a lovely one night stay at The Somerset Hotel after a snorkel boat trip. We wanted to see Male’ while in the Maldives, so we were looking for a location near the local sights. We were picked up at the airport and taken to the hotel as part of their service. We found The Somerset to be within easy walking distance of all the things we were hoping to see, and it was also a very nice space to rest up from battling the many cars and motorcycles on the narrow streets of the town. We were given a room immediately upon arrival, even though we were hours ahead of official check in time, which was very nice. There was a small living room with a couch and fridge in addition to the bedroom. Both were tastefully and comfortably furnished, and there was ample storage space for unpacking clothing. The mattress was comfortable and the shower good— both important when you are on the road. There was some construction noise during the day, but our room was very quiet at night. Staff was friendly, efficient, and helpful, including breakfast staff who made cappuccinos as well as keeping the food in order. There was a good variety of cold items available, and after breakfast we were returned to the airport for our afternoon flight, happy that we had chosen The Somerset for our stay.
