perched on the hillside in the center town of Madagascar's capital is an unpretentious, low profile boutique hotel reminiscent of Tana's French colonial grandeur. It is like living in a "museum" with endless collection of period gramophone, telephone, watches, oil lamps, typewriter, you name it. if you're into culture and into love of precious old things. this is a "must"...

This hotel is located very close to the presidential palace, about 18 KM from the airport. The staff are helpful, friendly and efficient. The decor of the main building is a collection of interesting antiques and curio that provide a pleasant distraction. Those interested in photography will be sure to appreciate the old units on display. The rooms are well... More

When we planned our trip to Tana we made sure we had a booking at La Varangue. We were not disappointed, the food, wine and setting on the courtyard were superb. It was one of the few places I have been to where I was tempted to take photos of the plates as they come out, it looked so good.... More

We stayed at this gem of an Hotel last night: I had read that the food in the Restaurant was the best in Tana and eveybody were absolutely correct ! The Menu was all written in French but it was no trouble for our waiter to translate perfectly in English; The Main Courses were about 12 euros and were superb:... More

My husband and I loved La Varangue! It's old world vibe charmed us, and there is literally nowhere better to eat in Antananarivo, the food, French style, was the best we had on our 5 week honeymoon! The hotel is fairly small, only a few rooms, so it feels homely. As soon as you pass through the gates and the... More

Loved the food at the hotel..yum....the rooms were huge and the balconies nice..loved the added touch of a kettle and wifi in the room...would definitely recommend a stay here!! A reminder to make a reservation at the restaurant for dinner..they book up fast! Lots of outside people come for the good food.

The first impression of La Varangue was that it must be owned by hoarders, there is stuff everywhere!!! But its all very clean, just not our style of decorating. The room we stayed in was huge and had a balcony which had a nice outlook. The bathroom looked like an afterthought but was functional. The staff were efficient without being... More

Stayed here our first two nights in Madagascar, having arrived after 1 a.m. We had a guide with us, and he certainly was able to communicate well with the staff. There was someone from the hotel waiting for us when we arrived. We were given a lovely, upstairs room in the addition ( room 24). We had our own balcony... More

We stayed here twice during our trip to Madagascar and enjoyed our stay both times. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they speak basic English, hotel is charming and we felt very safe there with their high walls, gated entry way and 24X7 security.
