We had the privilege of staying at this hotel for two nights one our way into Madagascar and again on our way out. Staff could not have been friendlier or more welcoming. The food was excellent too. Rooms were decorated individually and had a great colonial feel to them. I can't recommend this hotel enough.

Lokanga is situated atop the highest hill in the city so you are able to take it the views of the entire city and beyond. The outdoor patio and balcony are especially great for afternoon sun or a glass of wine at sunset. I believe we may have been the only guests there the night we stayed, so the staff... More

We only stayed one night but could have stayed longer. An excellent little hotel, with friendly staff, fantastic food and a wonderful view of Tana below. On arrival we were offered afternoon tea and then shown to our room which was a suite with the bath in the middle of the room. For some people this may not be suitable... More

I have stayed in five star hotels all around the world, some with butlers but never have I experienced better service from the desk staff. Madagascar is wonderful but it does throw up challenges constantly. When air madagascar cancelled our flights so we needed another night to stay and lokanga was full they found us another hotel, they hassled Air... More

The hotel is situated on top of a hill and so has great views over the city. We ate dinner in the hotel restaurant and the food was excellent. Our room was spacious but did not have a mosquito net or AC/ceiling fan. The temperature and noise of bugs flying around meant we did not have a good nights sleep.... More

Lovely location on the hill overlooking Antananarivo. 1930's home restored in French style décor. Bathroom in the room behind a screen - so french. Good internet, nice restaurant used by locals and a good morning breakfast. No shower, only a 4 clawed tub in the middle of the room (see picture). A unique and delightful experience. Our return visit was... More

Lovely place with really impressive linen, breathtaking views of the city and an extensive tea and menu selection. We only stayed 1 night there but it was a very restful evening.. I would recommend this place without fail to anyone.

This hotel is placed in the heart of Antananarivo, on the mountain near Queen's Palace. The owner made total reconstruction and now the hotel looks very respectable in Provance style. The hotel is full of antiques everywhere: in restaurant, inside rooms and in the hall. Food in restaurant was also very tasty and staff is very friendly. We had a... More

If you're in Tana, this may well be the pick of locations for the view. It is fantastic, located high on the hill overlooking the town. That said, it is poorly located to the airport or any destinations out of town and in very bad traffic, it could take a few hours to get here from the airport. The hotel... More

This has got to be one of the most unique places we've ever stayed in. The history of the house itself is very interesting and the way it has been restored is beautiful. Being so small it only takes a few guests at a time which adds to its appeal. We stayed here for four nights (non-consecutively) throughout our time... More
