This is an old an outdated hotel close to the busy Tana market, busy street, poor food, nothing to recommend it. Pub with loud outdated music, with the owner smoking cigars in the corner. Much better places to stay in Tana.

Location a little far from the centre, about 15 mins walk. Surroundings are a bit dodgy, nothing to do at night walkable. Nearby market down the hill interesting. On a busy street with noise and fumes making the balcony dining/breakfast unacceptable. Be sure to get a quiet room at the back. No lift, have to walk a few stairs. Small... More

A comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Good vegetarian options, especially when the Indian chef is around (about half the time). The vegetarian thali is a great deal. Also try the ginger tea (not on the menu), ask them to cut the ginger in very small pieces if you like it strong. No stomach problems here.

We stayed here on the recommendation of our tour guide. True, it was probably the most modern place we stayed while in Madagascar (it had heat!). However, the smoke and noise from the bar was unpalatable. Furthermore, the hotel must know how many guests bring in prostitutes (2/2 other guests we saw had a prostitute) as there are even condoms... More

My wife and I only stayed at the Brajas for one night on our arrival in Madagascar. As the Air France flight arrives in Tana quite late, I arranged with the hotel for a pick-up at the airport and all went smoothly. Though we didn't arrive at the hotel till after midnight, the reception staff were very friendly and efficient,... More

I would not stay here again. No help from concierge about places to go. Noisy bar, so I took room on top floor. No elevator. My room was called a "mini-suite," & not even a door to the bathroom! Area is not interesting & I was told too dangerous to walk about during the day or night!

The room has all unnecessary furnitures which are quite huge resulting in bare minimum space to even walk.The bathroom is very funny without any doors but one bamboo mat partition.Best part is the...

+ Impeccable service. Nice clean rooms. Hotel generally in great shape. Good price. Okay breakfast. Okay location. - Thin walls. Noisy party in the bar all night long and people running in the corridor. Some dodgy guests.
