Close to the beach and reasonably priced. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable and clean but noisy, sound travels from everywhere into the room. Maybe top floor is better. I was on the second floor and all the lobby noise could be heard.

UI Inn, the best little hotel in Hulhumale
I stayed at UI Inn, Hulhumale for 7 days 6 night, and left this hotel on Saturday 12th, May, 2018 at 2pm. Saif (the staff in charge) allowed me a leniency to stay at least up to 3-5 hours after checkout time at 12 o' clock, that was because most guests were leaving to the other islands that day, and some new guests would arrive in the evening; otherwise he was unable to allow such leniency during peak season. I feel so satisfied with the courtesy and friendlyness of all staffs at UI Inn, especially Yunus, who took care of the cleanliness and frehness of the small single standard room I stayed for 6 nights at UI Inn. The Wi-Fi in this hotel is running very smoothly with high speed and for free! And the daily house keeping is excellent! Convenient and full air-con public buses to Male International Airport and Hulhumale Ferry Terminal are available around UI Inn and with very cheap prices. It takes only 10 minutes by bus from Hulhumale to Male Airport and only for MVR 20 (US $ 1.33). If people says, this little hotel is only good for a short stay before going to the other islands; to me either way is perfect, you can stay in this little hotel longer because they can provide various tours in a very competitive price. I loved the cleanliness at this little hotel and the beach nearby (only 20m from 2 separate buildings of UI Inn)!
