One good night in Male!
Room was almost European sized, but it makes sense considering everything has to fit within the size of the island. The bed was very comfortable- we both commented on it! The room was VERY clean and the air conditioning was the best I’d felt in the Maldives. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. One even walked us to the boat we needed for an excursion to ensure we made it to the right spot. The staff truly made the experience wonderful and I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thanks for the great stay Novina!

Limpo e bem localizado, mas muito pequeno
Equipe atenciosa e prestativa. Quarto limpo, mas muito pequeno para o valor. Área de banho não possui porta de vidro, água espalha para o quarto, que já é pequeno. Recomendo para quem precisa ficar 1 noite na capital para depois se deslocar até o aeroporto.

Good hotel
We arrived in Male late so stayed here for a night before going to a resort. The room was small, it smelt very nice! Breakfast was good and the area felt safe. We didn’t organise a transfer but happened to see a man with a Novina sign at the airport and he led us to the hotel’s taxi which was very convenient!

Do not stay here
Awful. The room was dirty. Walls and bed linens were stained. There were ants on the danishes at Breakfast. When we tried to check out they tried to make us pay extra taxes and airport transfers even though we showed them that both were included in the price we paid to The manager was not here to help. He demanded that we pay or he would charge put card. Very unhappy.

Nice & convenient transit hotel in Male
We stayed in Lovina for our first and last night in Maldives. Free hotel transit was very handy. We also used their luggage storage for our big suitcases so we could travel to the islands light. Novina is conveniently located close to the jetty. There are quite a few restaurants and shops close to the hotel. Our room was small, without window but clean and equipped with everything we needed. The hotel staff are polite and helpful. We would stay again.

Good 6.0
never again stated that they have 24hrs transit from airport, I emailed them twice before departure but no one reply. I called at the airport and they told me the transit was closed. I have to go to the Novina by taxi. The hotel is tiny and the room is small. The hotel is nearby the Islamic Center, the public announcement @ 5:00AM woke me up. I asked them help to contact my resort to pick me up in next day morning but in vain. I have to wake up @6am and wait in the airport and contact myself. The breakfast provided is cheese sandwiches, 1 boiled egg and an orange only.

Offensive Food Odors
Convenient hotel if you need an overnight in Male prior to going to a resort as it’s close to the airport and to the speedboat jetty. The woman who met guests at the airport was really nice and so was the front desk staff. They helped arrange transport to another island. But...when I walked into the hotel the food odor hit me like a was horrendous, stifling. It was like a thick, humid, hot blanket. The air wasn’t circulating making it hard to breath. We all have food odors after cooking something pungent but we open a window or something. The odor encompassed the room as well. I didn’t even open my luggage in hopes the odor wouldn’t permeate my clothes. Don’t know if the odor was a one-off or if it always smells that way. Room was tiny. Only the length of a queen bed. Ok for one night. The breakfast was lackluster. Stale toast, a few mini muffins, cereal and a bit of fruit. As I was leaving I saw the staff giving someone eggs and tea. Not once did they walk over to my table and offer those to me so I didn’t know it was available. They stood behind the counter just chitchatting the whole time. Would not stay again.

Good value. Great service.
Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great with awesome tea. Like what other travellers have said, the room was very basic and sufficient, but there was a weird smell indeed. Overall, the bang for buck was good and I recommend this place.

Good Place to Spend the Night
This was a great little place to stay the night before leaving for the resort islands the following morning. No frills but good enough. Decent wifi. Breakfast was very basic. Free transfer to and from Male airport.
