Great place! The manager and staff are very attentive and they really go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The location is close to most interesting places which makes for easy sightseeing. Also, the restaurant has awesome food and the best wine I had in Madagascar.

Very helpful owner, I arrived at 10 a.m. and he found me a room to dump my baggage and a safe to secure my worldly goods. The room wast huge and clean and the shower first class. My dinner was perfect and the service was good. I should add I was housed in the Annex but that was irrelevant it... More

This hotel is kind of hidden down a quiet side street. Very good food. Quiet street that makes you feel like you are away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. The staff is courteous and helpful. The price is very good. It is close to the city center and within walking distance... More

The hotel gets good reviews, probably for their good service and very good restaurant, but not for their overpriced accommodation. The family suite we stayed in is urgently in need of repair. The bedding, although clean, had holes that looked like cigarette burns for example. The shower reminded me of a communal facility at a camping ground. I chose the... More

although this hotel was more expensive than others, we chose to stay here because of the good reviews. did other reviewers have better rooms? we don't need a lot from a hotel, but would usually expect to get a little more if we're paying more. our room was difficult to get to, the doors didn't close properly, it was musty...

The Good: The restaurant was good and clearly a popular choice for (better off) people living in the city. The cafe/bar and yard were pleasant way to relax over a coffee. The Less than Average: The rooms were musty, and felt half decorated/rennovated. The bathrooms adequate. We stayed on our way and way back from Nosy Be. Looking around the... More

We started and ended our Madagascar holiday here and were pleased with our choice. Nice ambience, especially due to the courtyard. Perfect location helpful owner. Rooms are a bit dark and nothing special.

Having read the reviews I insisted my Malagasy contacts change my itinerary to include some time at the end of my holiday at this hotel. They reluctantly agreed and I stayed here for one night; my mistake Of the eight hotels I stayed in this was by far the worst, it didn't hold a candle to the others. My room,... More
