A home away from home, I have stayed in Tana Jacaranda many times and am always greeted and treated in the nicest way. The staff is lovely, friendly and helpful, and the rooms are cheap and clean. There is a kitchen open all the time if you are hungry and don't feel like going out. You are well located to... More

The rooms were clean, the guesthouse is silent. Had very goos sleeps there. The food they cook is the best I've ever had in Madagascar (try zebu pepper. You'll be taken!). Internet access is a bit hard, MAC addresss based, they are often late registering you or early deleting you from the system. But still works better than in any... More

I can't praise this place enough. I would recommend it to any (budget) traveller heading to Tana. The staff were amazing - so friendly and helpful. They told us the best places to eat, helped us order taxis and printed off our boarding passes for free. It is a bit of a rabbits warren inside. Quite cramped, and stuffy (hardly... More

I stayed at the Tana Jacaranda for 2 nights, returning to Tana from Morondava en route to Nosy Be. from the outside it looks a bit like colditz, with heavy security doors and razor wire everywhere, so i wasnt too hopeful. Once you get inside it's much better, tho could maybe do with a coat of paint. The staff were... More

This hotel has a very friendly staff and the people are very understanding and helpfull. Although the outside of the hotel doesn't look like a nice hotel, the rooms are clean, and have wifi in the rooms. The rooms look a little bit old. We didn't like the dinner in the hotel. But there are many different options next to... More

We stayed in the double private room on three occasions while in Tana and loved each visit. The staff were so friendly and helpful; one time my husband was ill so they arranged for a doctor to visit, and another time we arrived quite late so we arranged for them to have canard à la vanille waiting for us... They... More

I stayed here four times for a total of five days during my month in Madagascar. There is good security with a doorman always on duty. The reception staff speak good English and are helpful with working out which taxi-brusse station to go to. The food in the restaurant is good but can be delayed if there are orders in... More

I stayed in at Tana-Jacaranda in May and June 2013 (unfortunately, I was very busy the last year, this is why I write this review with some delay). I came to Madagascar for field research in Political Science. The hostel is well located, very close to the presidential palace (actually you can look in its garden from the balcony) several...
