Stayed at this hotel a couple of times during my Madagascar visit. The hotel is older and the rooms could use an update but the rooms are a good size and clean. Ask for a room with a view of the city. We ate in the restaurant a number of times. Food was good. Food service was generally good with... More

Upon arriving back in Tana after two weeks of experiencing the wonders of Madagascar while hunting for lemurs, our tour leader took our group of 9 here for lunch. We did not stay the night at the hotel, we simply ate here. Situated on a hillside in the heart of Antananarivo, the dining room and terrace offered views of the... More

Stayed in this hotel on 2 occasions and thoroughly enjoyed both stays. The hotel sits in the middle of town on a hill with great views of the city. Must admit as we were driving to the hotel I was not that impressed by the neighbourhood (it was night) but there was nothing to worry about at all. Check in... More

We went there in transit and enjoyed really our stay as the view is amazing, the service is great and the food good! We could have a late checkout before returning to home and our room was really big, the right moment to rest before taking a long flight home...

During September our itinerary brought us here twice for a total of five nights. We found the facility delightful. The rooms were comfortable, the staff were very accommodating, and the dining was consistently excellent. A lot of attention to detail here.

We spent one night in this hotel between stops in Madagascar. The rooms were simple, but clean and comfortable. The hotel is situated on a hill so, eating on the terrace, one has views of the city. Great sunset views, as others have pointed out. The food is very good, many notches above average. Very friendly staff as well.
