“A pleasant stay at TANA hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We stayed here after arriving in Madagascar on 17th Sept 2012. The hotel is situated up some stairs, on the first floor. The time to check in was minimal, which was appreciated after such a long flight.

The Junior suite rooms were clean and nicely decorated, much nicer than we anticipated :), the room had good A/C and wifi facilities. A minor point (which did not bother my partner) was the noise from the nightclub below. Saying that, I was still able to get to sleep relatively quickly.

Breakfast in the morning was also satisfactory, with pleasant and smiling staff .

My only comment for improvement would be to reconsider pricing for hotel transfers as they seem very costly for the distance travelled.

All in all a good one night's stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room not on the first floor if you are able to walk and want a quieter night.

This hotel is located right in the middle of Anatanarivo right next to banks and restaurants etc and is also known by all taxi drivers which is handy. The rooms are very clean and new, with BBC world news as the only english language channel. There was some noise form the adjacent discos on the Saturday night I stayed but nothing that wasnt solved by a pair of earplugs. The breakfast is simple but more than adequate and the staff are very helpful and friendly. There are also some nice restaurants nearby.

The hotel is located in the center, so could be usefull for business travellers. Shops, banks, exchange offices are around. The rooms are spacious enough, modern, clean, good spleeping conditions. By my opinion, there is a nice lobby missing. No big choice on breakfast, but enough for me. The staff is friendly. Not cheap, but rather good value. Maybe possible to find somethig cheaper with more charm.

The manager told me this hotel was opened only last year. It is a typical city hotel with large modern rooms. I would rate this hotel higher if it had a restaurant and better breakfast buffet. The breakfast was fairly simple and not much of a selection. The staff was very nice and accommodating. I would definitely stay there again.

My Wife and I elected to visit Madagascar over Christmas holidays and the first challenge was getting a decent hotel of good value and location, yet clean (something you cannot take for granted in Antananarivo). Tana hotel is a great boutique hotel with cleanliness high on the agenda while located within walking distance of places such as Open markets of Independence avenue, the presidential palace, La Medina Spa and great restaurants such as La Varangue.

Rooms are reasonably spacious, very clean, fitted with usual amenities (e.g. mini bar, safe) and well maintained. The hotel is recently renovated actually. Service was prompt and courteous although the language barrier can often get in the way if you do not speak French. Also note that the hotel does not operate a restaurant so lunch and dinner meals will have to be elsewhere. On the occasion that we ordered for delivery through the reception of the hotel the food arrived cold. One other gripe is that the breakfast menu is very limited and after a few days we craved even the smallest of changes. No gym, swimming pool.

Room Tip: Choose rooms looking down the slope as these have great views of the city.

Tana Hotel (Tana being the abbreviation for the unpronounceable capital name Antananarivo) is a clean and reliable 3-star hotel (maybe even deserves a 4-star minus by western standards) right in the heart of the city center. The centric location is a big plus; all major hotels (such as Colbert, Louvre, Radama) and also the frivolous night entertainment (such as Cabaret Glacier, Palladium, Caveau, Pandora, 6 etc) are within walking distance.

Prices are fair: a single room for 65 EUR, plus add another 40 EUR for tranfers from / to the airport.

Reception staff is friendly, eager-to-help and English was spoken at a level that was at least understandable. WIFI works well in the rooms and is for free.

I had just an afternoon to see the historic upper part of Tana in a 3h walking tour starting from burnt-down Rova Royal palace (closed to public, but a small bribe will open all doors), down to Lac Anosy. A one-night stayover in Tana is more than enough to get the taste, as the city is not really filled with touristic highlights.

Tana Hotel is located one block away from the President Palace, so it is supposed to be a safe place, but in the night you see some dodgy people in this area. So if you want to go out by night in Tana, make sure that you have a local accompanying you (my walking tour guide happily agreed to join me for some drinks after dinner). Main problem are the aggressive girls that harass you, thinking you are a walking wallet.

Dinner at nearby “La Varangue Hotel” was perfect; I also looked at their rooms, which are more spacious and around the same price level of Tana Hotel. So, probably I would book this place next time in Tana.
