Hotel Jen Malé

Introduction: Hotel Jen Malé, Maldives is located on the smallest island capital city in the world. It’s a seven-minute speedboat ride from Ibrahim Nasir International Airport and a one-minute walk from the arrival jetty. The hotel is ideally situated amidst the bustling government and corporate centre.

Above information is how the hotel presents itself on their website.

Below is my experience based on a one-night stay at the property.

Number of Rooms: 117.
