I was impressed by the classic and colonial style of the rooms and the hotel itself. We stayed with the family and were accommodated in enormous huge rooms. It was a little scary sometimes because it looks like a big castle and we felt like a royal family ;-) very nice breakfast with original jam selfmade from the hotel.

The French colonial style building was a total surprise. The reception and lobby is very nicely decorated and the wifi worked very well. The concrete floor of the long corridors to the rooms needs improvement. But when opening the room door it was a total surprise: A suite with wooden floor with a large beatiful decorated sitting area and a... More

We used the hotel as a base while evaluating schools in the four corners of the island. Rooms were clean and comfortable. WiFi was good. Breakfasts - ok if you like French breakfasts. Would suggest that a wider variety was offered. The entire complex reflects the general need for upgrade of infrastructure in Tana. Staff and management - including security... More

I stayed at La Residence in May. The apartment we stayed in was massive. It had a kitchen, lounge room, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. Problems with La Residence: Plumbing was horrible. The shower flooded and when we asked them to fix it, they still didn't fix it properly. When you are paying over $60 for a room, you would... More

Stayed there for 2 weeks in july 2012. Comfortable but a bit old excellent bed though. Good deal for the price. A bit far from downtown but taxi will take you there in half an hour. There are taxis just around the corner. (by the way taxi cars are in very bad shape...) In any cases there is nothing to... More

The best thing about La Residence is that the beds were very comfortable. Sometimes that's hard to find here in Madagascar. H owever, considering the price, it was unacceptable that they had so many plumbing issues, a huge amount of mold (bad for allergies), and not the best service (in a country that usually has outstanding service). The worst part... More

Apparently M. Adam’s biggest concern is the distance from downtown. So, it’s sure we are not in downtown but we're only 4 miles away, in a residential area served by taxis and buses, with a free shuttle from the hotel to the city center (upon reservation). Many of our guests continue to come back (even knowing our location), certainly for... More

Stayed at La Residence for seven nights. I booked a 'suite' so that I could have internet access (not available in all rooms). Sadly this was unavailable after the first day due to a problem with the phone line. The manager kindly offered her mobile internet flash drive to check emails but was not quite the same as wireless access.... More
