This hotel is a nice place in Tana. Restaurant is really good, nice pool, really cool parrat, rooms are nice.. but there are lots of different rooms with different prices. Personell is nice and some speak english. Only problem is, hotel and restaurant are popular and you should book in advance.

Friendly staff. Lovely hotel. This is my sort of hotel. BoutiQue and warm. Nationally relevant decor. Lovely rooms. Near some fantastic restaurants. This really is home away from home. A shelter from the stress. Absolutely lovely. The location is perfect. - Away from the excessive hubub of the main street.

I randomly booked this hotel as my flight was cancelled. I viewed a couple of room and picked room 15. It is the only one decorated this way, very surprising. See the pictures to understand. It very comfortable, quiet, love the toiletries and citronnelle shower gel with actual pieces of citronella to scrub your body. Staff is very welcoming too.

In the centre of Tana this hotel gave us a nice and secure feel. The decoration is pretty and gives you an immediate Madagascar smile. The rooms are clean and cozy. The food was not our favourite point of this hotel but was ok, with a special mention for the lunch buffet. Our room gave on the interior court where...

This is a truly hidden gem. Location is superb. Its rooftop restaurant is excellent. The place itself its decorated with historic objects and memorabilia. Walking distance from virtually any place in the city , the area is very calm.

Good hotel in Tana with good breakfast (note that it might be much cheaper if you don't take the buffet but rather order a la carte), nice decorated rooms with rainshower and normal shower and free wifi. We stayed twice for 1 night and were happy with both stays. Also a must-go is the Sakamanga restaurant for great food, but...

As other reviewers have said, this place is very bohemian. We stayed here for one night in the beginning and one night at the end of our trip. Each time we stayed in different rooms. One room was quite traditional and the other was very artsy and quirky. In both, they were clean and comfortable. The staff isn't terribly friendly...

Sakamanga is a very popular hotel in Tana. Their lunch buffet is popular too. So you can imagine how many people are around in the reception at check out time and in the restaurant at lunch time. The staff were very helpful in Sakamanga. They helped us arranged a car to Andasibe when we needed one. Our room was facing...

A very pretty hotel, with everything you can possibly need. Great restaurant, nice pool area, boutique, massage, you name it. The best hotel in Tana if you ask me. The express food restaurant just next door (delivering to the pool side) is also a must!
