Review of Express Inn Maldives

It was a clean & efficient stay over this B&B. Transfers were smooth.

Stayed 1 night in May 2018


Hotel staff were friendly but thats all

The place is run down at best. Given that it is a 3 star hotel we expected basic amenities such as clean towels and tooth brush. The towels were stained and the bed sheets were stained as well. There were no tooth brush provided and they charge USD $2 for one toothbrush. Breakfast was not included and came with a charge of $5 - we opted to eat out inside. Would not recommend this place unless you're really really out of choice - for the price you're paying you're much better off getting a good hotel in Maafushi. We were initially under the idea that speedboats to Maafushi did not run after 6pm. Sigh, if only we had known they run till 10pm! We would not have stopped over at Hulhumale.

Pros: Staff were friendly and welcoming

Cons: Facilities and basic condition of the room

Location: Really good cafe called Family Room cafe nearby

  • Liked: Staff & service

Hotel close to the airport

The pick up from the airport was good. 10usd per way. Its a little expensive as you will be sharing the shuttle with many other guest. But for the convenient, it's worth it. The front desk staff spoke very good English and is very professional. Helped us to call our resort on the following day to arrange for our transfer.

  • Liked: Cleanliness

Just a night in Male because we landed too late

Simple hotel that did the trick for one night because we landed too late that day to make it to our island. Not related to the hotel, but that bus from the airport to Hulumale sucks and is really confusing and nothing else can go to the airport, taxis don't go there.
