“Friendly and peiceful but still central”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

This is a great little hidden hotel, the rooms were comfortable... food is best in Tana and the staff were very accommodating. I would stay here again every time.

Only concern was we had a Tv with no sound... but no need for TV when you're on holidays.

Location is central but lucky this place is concealed from all the chaos that comes with Tana.

Room Tip: the higher up the better if you don't want to hear restaurant noise...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

We stayed here on two separate occasions in May 2012. Upon arrival we instantly felt at home, the hotel is tucked away nicely in a quiet street. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and spoke reasonable English or at least understood our poor attempts at French.

The rooms are excellent, one of the few places we stayed with hot showers in Madagascar. On our second stay we were unable to get our requested room, but were without fuss compensated the difference with dinner at the restaurant. The food at the restaurant was excellent. It was a little noisy on a Friday night, but no more than one would expect.

Free Wi-Fi.

The hotel is close to banks and a market (be watchful of kids in the market trying to pick your pockets with shopping bag distractions).

This would be my first choice to stay in Tana.

Room Tip: The rooms in the main building are very nice, although they can catch the noise of the restaurant be...

Hotel La Ribaudiere offers rooms to both 3 and 4* Western standards with a varied and delicious menu. All this supported by smiling, friendly staff, speaking reasonable English, and of course excellent French.
The area is just away from the busier roads, with an excellent local market (daily?) just 100m away and reputable banks/ATMs and restaurants just 200m away.
If you're in Tana this really is an excellent place to stay, take lunch or dinner. For the latter I'd advise turning up early as the restaurant seems to fill up quite quickly.
Enjoy!
