An oasis in Tana! The perfect hotel to escape the chaos that is Tana. The hotel is nesseled beside the Presidential Palace, is only minutes walk to the main street and shopping areas. Being located in a narrow side street against the walls of the palace may seem a negative, but it creates a perfect quite escape from Tana's daily...

This hotel is simply charming! The owner is evidently a fan of collecting antiques and every corner is covered with antique objects (cameras, oil lamps, and gramophones are just a few. He also has an impressive antique car collection up front). The hotel is located near the presidential palace. The service at the hotel was excellent (they helped us get...

My wife and I stayed at the hotel on two occasions during our two and a bit weeks in Madagascar. The staff were very accommodating and kept our bags for us when we went off for a week. They even gave us a room to get ready for the airport when we returned. As it was off season we were...

We stayed at La Varangue several times. While not all rooms are equal in terms of space, we found all four that we have stayed in to be very clean and comfortable with enough space. La Varangue is also surprisingly tranquil, considering its central location. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. Breakfast is exceptionally good with much more choice...

The location is perfect, the rooms are nice and very large, the service is good, the restaurant is one of the best around and the price, although in the higher range for the city, remains very reasonable. On top of that you've got a funny decor and even collectors cars in front of the entrance! What to add? Good place....

We stayed here four separate nights during our three week visit to Madagascar. We stayed in three different rooms. One with a view of the courtyard and President's Palace, one with a view of the City and one huge Suite (#1). The first two rooms were standard rooms and were good but not great. The suite was fantastic. All the...

I am still sitting outside the Varangue and am very sad that the week here is coming to an end... This is the cutest hotel I ever stayed in. Its only a small hotel but with a few rooms. And the very friendly and caring staff makes you feel at home and part of the family. The special athmosphere is...

My husband and I stayed in this hotel as part of a tour package deal, so we did not choose the hotel. That being said, we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The premises were beautiful, and the food in the restaurant was good but expensive (and fancy, as my husband says). However, we were less than...

I moved from the Hotel Corbert to La Varangue because I felt that Hotel Corbert’s rooms were dusty and dark. When checking in, the staff at La Varangue were really helpful. The room was not as large as the Hotel Corbert but was clean, comfortable and of a higher standard. The gardens were beautiful and staff very accommodating. Water pressure...

My 18-year old son and I spent our first night in Madagascar at La Varangue, and it was a wonderful welcome to the country. The entire hotel, including lobby, bar and restaurant, are filled with antiques and other quirky artifacts. Our room was on the first floor, directly at the top of the staircase, and it had a pleasant view....
