“Perfect for first timers to Tana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2011

Exceptionally comfortable modern hotel within a gated complex of shops and restaurants with an ATM just across the road. Multi-lingual professional and friendly staff ensured that everything went smoothly in a country often perceived as being disordered. The food here is top class and the portions are hefty. Our rooms were clean and comfortable and beautifully furnished with a mix of classic Malagasy decor and state of the art bathroom. Mosquitoes can be a nuisance but our room was supplied with electric mosquito repellants which kept them at bay. This hotel has really comfortable beds, soft pillows and lovely duvets perfect for bedding down in after a day in town.

I like this hotel for the fact that it provided me the comfortable experience.Although english speaking staff and Indian cousine are two issues the management can address if they wish to.The view is also good.I am of the opinion that these parts of world the real meaning of service is yet to be understood.Term hospitality has its own geographical limitions and understanding.I am happy with my stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for the balcony facing swimming pool...

A tranquil gem in the middle of bustling ‘Tana, the Tamboho is built around a pool, settled into the landscape beside a bird-filled lake. The rooms and public spaces are decorated with fine taste and attention to detail, and incorporate the work of local artists. The hotel is quite simply one of teh most beautiful we've ever stayed in.
The views from the rooftop patio and from the pool are incredible. The restaurant serves interesting, delicious meals. The hotel is set in a small enclave of restaurants, and nice shops, including an excellent bookstore, a gift boutique, and a large grocery store, so most retail needs can be taken care of on foot. The staff are very helpful, and find ways to accommodate traveller’s needs. In our case a very early departure was made more bearable by a lovely light breakfast.

I have stayed here twice and both times have been a pleasure. Shops across the street offer good shopping and food if hotel food is not your choice. Rooms are modern and clean and prices are very reasonable.

After travelling 1800 kms in car in the South of the country, it was lovely to get back to one of my most favourite hotels, only to be greeted by the manager with the lovely words - "welcome home". I love this hotel and the staff are wonderful. Rooms (delightful bedding) , food etc all still great. Location good and some nice shopping in safe environment just over the road. Price extremely good. If you're going to Tana - you must try here.
