Matching cost to value for money staying at Le Grand is worth every cent, its not a quiet environment but it sure does help you relax with a small selection of a spa and a gym to sweat out tention from your system. If you have to spend less than 3 days or are transiting on work or holiday basis... More

Tana is a difficult city to love, and has that hard edge noticeably absent in the rest of Madagascar. A steady stream of migrants flock to the city from the provinces and there sadly isn't enough opportunity to go round. With that it mind it is more reassuring to have something safe and comfortable, and may be worth paying that... More

When we arrived we were not too sure as the hotel didn't look much on the outside, the lobby wasn't too encouraging either, but the people were lovely and the room was basic with a view over the back of some houses. We were only there for one night and so wasn't too concerned. On the way back we had... More

I stayed with some friends for one night at Mellis at the start of our Madagascar tour. The hotel is not too far from the airport, a reason why we chose it. Unfortunately, the website shows the hotel in a better light than it actually is. In reality, the place is quite worn down. The pool was very dirty with... More

At USD 80 / night for a Suite, Mellis Grand, nestled in the heart of Madagascar;s capital - Antananarivo... Quite a large room space, considering its prime location, Meliis provides a quite, laid back ambiance, which will put you to sleep, very soon....

We stayed here for a couple of nights and found it very convenient. It is in the lower town and easy to walk around the Avenue d'Independence, to the markets and to the Upper Town. The rooms are fine and the staff very friendly. They have recently put some spotlights shining on the outside of the hotel so make sure... More
