This hotel is modern with air con; we had a deluxe room. The en suite is excellent with instant hot water. Due to our flight delay we did not arrive until 10.45 pm. The night porter was most helpful. Due to our late arrival the tea/coffee making facilities available in the room were just perfect. The buffet breakfast offers plenty... More

Nice little hotel. In a very safe area. Nice view from rooms. Restaurant simple, but quality selections. About 40 rooms all w good air conditioning and flat screen TVs. Definitely would stay there again. Shopping close too. spa decent. Very affordable.

If you are wanting the hustle and bustle of Antananarivo outside your door (and that certainly has its charms) then this is not the place for you. But the style is lovely and zen like and I just loved coming "home" to here after long days in Tana traffic. The staff are wonderful - attentive and courteous. The pool is... More

Sometimes it's the little things that count, like a refrigerator near each stairwell with free cold drinks (the very antithesis of what most hotels do) or a free massage with certain reservations. The rooms are extremely attractive without losing a bit of functionality. Pure and simple: the nicest stay I've had in Antananarivo. Slightly distant from the city center, but... More

I stayed for 12 nights at Hotel Tamboho. Room was large with a classic decor and very clean. The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood with a heated swimming pool, a very good restaurant with amazing breakfast. It was super comfortable. I definitely recommend this hotel.

My wife and I recently decided to spend a weekend in Madagascar. We organized a booking at the Hotel Tamboho which is situated in what is euphemistically called the Tana Waterfront. This is a walled off relatively upmarket compound in Antananarivo. The hotel is clean and the rooms are large. The furnishings are very classy and the bathroom was pleasant.... More

Hotel is modern and clean with good service and in a convenient location. The room was well-equipped and comfortable, and food was good. My only complaint is that the bar/restaurant area is very small - especially when it's too cold to use the outside area.

This is a very confortable hotel especially if you are in Tana for business. Confortable, practical, well located and with a very good restaurant. The only minus is that there is no fridge in the room but since the fridges are often very noisy it might actually be better not to have one in the room. Since it is located... More

Friendly hotel with very modern appointments. Taxi travel essential but taxi stand within sight. Staff willingness to please counteracts minor irritations; e.g.not noticing the Do Not Disturb sign every morning. Food was good. Other travelers diverse. Owner on the premises, often with his family. Wish my French was better.

Hello, Thanks for your review. I'm happy that you enjoy your stay in Tamboho, and his modern appointments. You need a taxi to join the historic center of the town or walk for 15-20 min (but walking is not easy in Tana, sidewalks are not in good condition). I will tell the housekeeper to pay attention to the "do not... More

I booked this place by chance at the last minute and have not been disappointed during my 3-day stay. The room is spacious, beautifully appointed with ultra-modern furnishings overlooking a sparkling swimming pool and rice paddies. The bathroom is large with a spectacular rainhead shower. There's a lovely spa here where I had the relaxing bamboo massage and it truly... More
