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

I fell in love with the layout and decor of this hotel. We stayed only two nights (each a separate stopover in the city between other trips), but the romantic and relaxed atmosphere meant it didn't seem a rush. The views over the city as we enjoyed wine on the terrace at sunset were stunning and even better when the... More

We only stayed one night in transit but would quite happily have stayed longer. The staff were very attentive and couldn't do enough for us. As mentioned in other reviews, they spoke excellnt English. We had requested a room with a large bed (as advised by a review I read online) as my husband is 6'3" and we were not... More

A small but amazing hotel. Rooms are different but well apppointed. Has been furnished in the old french style. Menu has good choice and well cooked. Not a criticism of the Hotel, but avoid the Sundowner Foie Gras!!!!! when we found out how Foie Gras prepared in Madascar

We only stayed here one night whilst transiting back to the UK but what a place to stay. Great views, high over the chaos of Tana below, where over breakfast, you can watch the city wake up in the morning from one of the balconies. There really are no faults with this place, we had a great evening meal, buffet... More

If you want to feel like a queen in Tana, if you like history and art, and being pampered, stay here. Each room has its own theme and history, every object in this boutique hotel has a unique story. Staying here is more than a sleep-over, it is a journey in Malagasy past times. Fabiola, the owner, has eye for... More

While this hotel restaurant is top quality, it has none of the ostentation common in similar establishments. The service is friendly, the cooking superb and the setting, in a beautfully restored traditional malagasy house, outstanding. Prices while on the high side, represent real value for money.The travel Advisor's 5 stars are fully justified; I will be returning, this time with... More
