“Transit hotel for Ivato Airport (TNR)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

I consider this hotel being a small place for a transit between flights near Antananarivo Airport in Ivato. Hotel does offer a free pickup service for arrivals in Ivato if you contact them before (just send them an email). It is also well located at around 5 minutes of the airport, so if your flight arrives late it is perfect since Antananarivo can be far away in the morning traffic jams.

I was there for less than 5 hours (arrived late and night and had a flight early in the morning) but still had time to take some rest and have a shower. Room had a small fan, but at night temperature was good even without it.

A picture of loveliness near an airport that only gets about 30 (small aircraft) flights a day that won't be a problem especially with the wild life that are all around the garden that spans across the whole hotel complex that you walk through.
We were there when we landed and two days before we left Madagascar to go home and it is a lovely place, all the staff are very nice, the rooms are nice, food is nice and there is a massive local market not a 5min walk down the road as well as surrounded by shops

Room Tip: Doesn't matter

We stayed twice one night in this hotel. First time when we flew in from Paris and arrived at midnight, the second time was the day before leaving Tana by plain.
Since we only had a few hours between flights on arrival it was the perfect spot since it's located a few minutes from the airport and offers a free taxiservice to the hotel. Mind it's only free this way, to the airport costed us 6000Ar.
The site mentions a 24/24 restaurant service but during our stay we were told the chef was leaving at 21h. Breakfast is self-service and available from 4h.
It has a nice, spacious and quiet garden.
We stayed one night in a double room with shared bathroom, small room in the attic but ok.
The second night we had room n°15, a double room with private bathroom. Sadly it was situated at the streetside which means that you get to enjoy a great city-soundscape from around the time breakfast is being served... Do not choose this side of the hotel if you'd like to sleep a little bit longer :)
Rooms located a little further from the street are really quiet!
Overall friendly people who do not always seem to understand French quite good. But that only ads to the atmosphere of being abroad.
If you'd like to stay in or visit Tana I'd rather choose a hotel in the centre of town.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street are noisy

We stayed here for one night between a late arriving flight into Tana and an early flight the next day to Tuléar. The taxi driver was in the airport with a sign waiting for us, was very helpful and showed us where to change money, and the transfer was included in the price, 55,000 Ar for a double room.
The hotel has a beautiful garden and seating area, the room was clean and had lots of character. Unfortunately there had been a problem with the water and there was none to our room, not even cold so we had to flush the toilet with a bucket of cold water.
The staff that we met were very helpful and some spoke English.
A taxi transfer back to the airport in the morning was 6,000 Ar.

800 meters from Ivato Airport, clean, peaceful, secure, welcoming, comfortable. Excellent food, quiet courtyard (complete with resident tortoises), lounge with fireplace, tri-lingual staff. Is used as a base by British EcoTours groups. Costs are per person- we paid around $20 a night for 2 people and a room with 2 beds.

Consider staying here after arriving on a late-night flight (or before heading back out on the 1 AM flight to Paris). Avoids the overpriced taxis to Tana, and is a better value than similar hotels in the city center. Road outside can be a bit loud, though, so bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper.

You get what you pay for and this hotel was great for the price. If you are on a budget and need somewhere close to the airport then this is a good choice. It has its quirks as do all budget Madagascan hotels but for me this just adds to the charm. The bed was not super comfortable, the walls were very thin but it was fine!. There was a coll little garden in the grounds with flowers, chameleons and a tortise, the breakfast included was reasonable and the staff were friendly enough.
