The perfect boutique hotel. The rooms were perfectly clean and comfortable. The location of this hotel is spectacular and the views are the best in the city. Those running the hotel are friendly, courtious, and very accomodating...working hard to make our stay wonderful. We had been told to stay at the Carlton but the Lokanga has a charm and friendliness... More

We loved our stay at Lokanga, a period building with a history that alone is worth the stay! The staff was extremely polite and helpful, as well as the owner who's always around making sure the guests are feeling at home in Tana. Our room was spacious and comfortable and included the bathroom in the same space. Not ideal if... More

This was our base hotel as we passed through Tana 3 times over our trip with Imagine Africa. The staff were welcoming and seemed excited to hear how we had enjoyed our adventures. They were also very generous to store some things for us when we had to take a small charter that didn't allow all of our baggage. The... More

Upon arrival, we were welcomed with a drink which was nice and then escorted to the "baroque" suite. To our surprise we realized that the bath was in the same space as the bed with clear separation, more disturbingly, so was the toilet, hiding behind a vintage screen.... Lovely setting for a romantic stay, not! Fortunately, other rooms offer more... More

Dear Guest Thanks for your remarks. For the stains on the towels, we are deeply sorry : indeed we had towels with sun tan oil which tired out to be impossible to wash away; they should never have been put back in a room. We did change all the towels of your room as soon as we realized that; Measures... More

We visited Lokanga several times as we crisscrossed Madagascar, and each time we arrived it felt like we were coming home. The staff were lovely, welcoming and very helpful, the colonial style building was tasteful and stylishly decorated, the view over the city was breathtaking and I am fairly sure they have the most comfortable beds in Madagascar. Lokanga is... More

This was a lovely place to get our first taste of Tana and Madagascar. We arrived late and left early, but enjoyed this charming, old house/hotel on the historic hill of Tana. The staff was helpful despite our odd hours, we enjoyed a quiet night of sleep and the sweeping views on the veranda at breakfast. I would love to... More

We weren't able to stay at this hotel when we visited Madagascar. However, they were kind enough to invite us for dinner and make sure had a taste of everything they offered. Wonderful staff, very friendly and enthusiastic to accommodate your needs. We saw the sunset and was awed at the view. Very historic rooms and unique features. I will... More

The Lokanga is great in many ways, super friendly staff, a very personal touch in the interior decoration, a good restaurant and, not least, stunning panoramic views of the city. On the down side only one serious mistake, having a totally open bathroom inside the bedroom is quite a bummer. The old fashioned bathtub in the middle of the room... More
