The hotel is well located adjacent to a residential area with a shopping mall and restaurants. Rooms are reasonable size and well maintained. The staff are responsive. There is a oool and the grounds well maintained.

The hotel is set within a gated compound that houses a small shopping mall, with a pharmacy. This is good for those wishing to have some security and peace of mind while visiting Antananarivo. I was slightly disappointed with the amenities, there is no gym, the pool is small and outdoor, and suffers from mosquitos in the evening. My room...

Nice staff, but a lot of them don't seem to understand English. When I got to my room, I found more than 10 dead mosquitoes on my bed (under the comforter too). When I called reception about it, they just sent someone to spray raid all over my room. The woman asked if I wanted it sprayed on my bed!...

Thanks for your review, We start this month english course for the staff. We started with french course three years ago, as Madagascar has been visited by more french than English speaker. For mosquitoes, we put some net on the windows to allow fresh air in the room during the summer season and use spray every evening. Sorry the staff...

I have stayed several times at this hotel. It is a small boutique hotel. Staff is wonderful, cuisine good, though if you stay there for more than a week the menu becomes a little bit limited - but in this section of town, Tana waterfront, there are, at least during the day, some alternative places to eat (not so much...

I recently spent 6 nights at the Tamboho on a business trip. The most striking thing about this place is the location – set on a somewhat swampy lake with pleasant views and attractive landscaping as well as a large number of birds. It sits within a small gated enclave of nice mini-malls, shops, and restaurants called the Tana Waterfront....

Reviewed 9 May 2016

This review biased by a single night stay. I may not have had the full experience. I enjoyed the view from the bar-balcony, but I was told that this is seasonal... not great year round. The decor is pleasing and the bathroom modern. Staff members were pleasant and helpful. The room was poorly lit -- not an environment for reading....

This is the best hotel you can find in the area. It is safe and can provide you all you need. The restaurant menu is not amazing but acceptable.

My husband and I spent our last night in Madagascar in the Hotel Tamboho. The entrance is very pleasant and welcoming, with chalet-style beams and floors. The room was spacious and clean. Oddly, the wall that separates the bedroom from the bathroom has a large circle cut in it. In the circle is a large rattan circle just slightly smaller,...
