“Friendly relaxed place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

We stayed at the Lokanga having booked for 2 nights before going travelling around Madagascar. We were coming back to Tana prior to our flight out and had thought we would stay somewhere different. We changed our minds after staying here for two days. It is a delightful setting with a wonderful view over the town. The owner and staff could not have been more helpful, giving tips on places to go for massages, restaurants etc. The rooms are all very different. We had a suite on the top floor when we first stayed and then a room on the first floor with balcony the second time. It depends what you want...big bed, bath... balcony.... but all the rooms are decorated in a very individualistic way. The food was ok...not great, but many nice restaurants in tana and taxis at night are easy. Actually, breakfast good...with lovely chocolate brownies. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Depends what you want... Ask and they will guide you to right room

Dear Guest
thanks very much for taking time to put a review in Tripadvisor. The Chef will be working hard to improve the food! And we will keep the brownies in the breakfast menu.
We hope to see you again at Lokanga Boutqiue Hotel.

Stayed here for the final 2 nights of our honeymoon and we were so happy with our choice! It's perched on the royal hill, overlooking the whole of Tana and about a hundred metres from the closed down palace. While it is not in the centre of town, it is an easy and pleasant stroll downhill (we got cabs back up!) and I think the location couldn't be better. Staff were faultless and the baroque room with it's antique bed, freestanding claw foot bath and general feel of opulence was exactly what we wanted. Food was good and staff faultless. It's not cheap but worth it as a special treat. I'm already planning my return visit!

Most beautiful view of Antanarivo + pristine restorated traditional house + XIXth/early XXth century furniture + wonderful owners and staff = One of a kind in Tana.

Room Tip: The Suite is just amazing

I was traveling with a small group and stayed one night on December, 2011. The house reminds me of some of the better, funky B&B in the UK. The house is an extensively restored, old grand house with wonderful views of the city below from the terrace. The owner and staff were wonderful. Try to have dinner there. It was very good.

Room Tip: Try one of the rear, upstairs rooms. Each one is different and has a view of the city.

This little gem of a hotel is a must for anyone staying in Antanarivo. We only stayed one night, but I wish it had been longer. The rooms were funky yet elegant, with an exquisite attention to detail everywhere, the food was great, the beautiful outdoor terrace had stunning views of the city, and the staff were utterly charming. I was ill when I got there, and the owner, Fabiola, couldn't have been kinder or more helpful. An outstanding place to chill out.
