We stayed at this place at the beginning of our trip to Madagascar, while in Tana. It is a nice hotel, the staff are friendly, the food is good, the rooms are spacious, modern and clean. The agency that booked this hotel for us was Madablue Madagascar. They arranged our entire trip. I recommend them when traveling to Madagascar.

Beautiful hotel by the lakeside in Antananarivo with beautiful views over the water and the gardens. Food on the small menu is excellent and the service is impeccable. Small swimming pool. The hotel is in a gated community, with access to a supermarket, a food court, pharmacy, hairdresser and other shops: whether this is good or bad is a personal...

This hotel is a mix of tradition and modernity: wifi is excellent and available everywhere, which is very convenient during a business trip, and the decoration is locally inspired, with pictures, artwork and craft made in Madagascar. The service is very enjoyable, and the location is perfect, with an amazing view. Food at the restaurant is very good as well,...

I stayed there in April 2015 and was surprised how chic it was. The room was spacious and well equipped. I had access to the garden and pool directly. The restaurant served great food and it was fresh evert day. I fish carpaccio was heaven and the desserts excellent.

I definitely enjoy my time there. Very clean and cute hotel, all wood and well decorated. My room was very large (I think it was the superior room). The staff is really nice and helpful. Breakfast is complementary and pretty good, fresh fruits, crepes, and other standard. The other nice thing is that it is in Tana Water Front, a...

Beautiful boutique hotel in Tana. Tastefully decorated, clean with friendly staff. After being stuck in traffic on a very hot day arriving at the hotel felt like arriving in an oasis after hiking through a desert. Check in was quick and easy. The hotel can arrange a taxi which is better than the taxis you get on your own Because...

Hotel Tamboho feels like a safe haven in the jungle of Antananarivo. The location is great, inside the Tana Water Front. Very nice rooms, of wifi and a good restaurant.

We stayed here twice during a recent family trip to Madagascar. The hotel is clean, secure, and friendly. It is located inside a gated shopping area with a western style market just across. Right on the lake. Unfortunately it is quite a ways from Ivato Airport, and with traffic in Tana, it can get pretty frustrating. This usa good hotel...
