Nice and comfortable hotel, with rooms and bathrooms very clean. It is also very close to the tourism office Ortana, which provides very interesting walking tours in Tana. The only weak point is that you don't get a very warm welcome compared to the malagasy habits.

First the hotel is very well located, being near most of the city's tourist atractions and the market. Though most of the locals only speak the national language or french, they understand english and some of the staff also speak it (for those like me that aren't that fluent in french). As we enter the hotel, we see a little,... More

This elegant boutique hotel and French Bistro is tucked away in a side street in down town Tana. The rooms are well decorated, clean and comfortable with wifi, cable tv and ensuite. There is a central court yard which is an extension of the great restaurant which serves French and Malagasy dishes it also has an extensive wine list.

Great place! The manager and staff are very attentive and they really go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The location is close to most interesting places which makes for easy sightseeing. Also, the restaurant has awesome food and the best wine I had in Madagascar.
