We spent two individual nights at Lokanga as it served as the hub to our spoke visits in Madagascar. Excellent location which afforded us a beautiful view of the city from our balcony. The room was charming. Not sure what's available in Tana but this hotel certainly worked for us. We enjoyed our dinners here and the conversation with staffers... More

We really enjoyed taking a break during our road tour of Madagascar and spent a couple of nights here. The beautiful colonial style decor and the terrace/garden with great views of the all city create a relaxing and charming atmosphere. The room was spacious and comfortable, the bathroom well-equipped.

We've stayed two times in the Lokanga hotel. The good things about it are the view over Tana, which is truly beautiful, the restaurant (both food and atmosphere are really nice) and the service. The rooms itself are only ok, and breakfast is super simple. But in a city famous for mainly having bad hotels, it's definitely worth staying in.... More

My husband me I stayed here for our first night in Madagascar after a late flight arrival. The room was so opus and comfortable in old colonial style. The view of the city from the terrace is incredible. You can see the whole of Tana. The staff were very friendly and the food was delicious. We tried various Malagasy dishes... More

This comfortable and splendidly furnished hotel is set on the Royal Hill, providing incredible views over the city. The rooms have different themes and are equipped with antiques and family souvenirs. The bathroom was enormous and there was also a pleasant outside balcony, again with panoramic views. The staff were friendly and professional and we enjoyed the cuisine there. We... More

Fab little gem near the palace with amazing views and tranquil garden! Great for a beer and lunch! Specials and desserts are really good! Super service too; we had the zebu and butter chicken which was really creamy! Burger bread was very hard!

This is a stunning place to stay and a piece of Malagasy history - the house where the Queen's Palace musicians used to live, and it is a delight! Each bedroom is full of antiques and some have balconies looking out over all of Tana below. The restaurant is excellent - eat on the terrace or indoors. and sometimes a... More

My husband and I stayed at the Lokanga Boutique Hotel on Christmas Eve. It is a quaint and comfortable lodging in a colonial-style building filled with antiques and other interesting decor. We were given a welcome drink upon arrival while they arranged our check-in details. Our room, the Explorator, was several flights up. Warning: I did not see an elevator.... More

Its is difficult to fault the Lokanga Boutique Hotel... superbly located with stunning views out over Tana. The décor is distinctly Parisian... each of rooms is unique but finished to an exceptionally high standard, complete with chandeliers. The staff were friendly; the service was excellent and the food was delicious. On a very minor off-note, one of the rooms was... More

We were only passing through Tana and stayed here one night. It fit our needs perfectly and we were happy with the choice - partly because we had the right expectation. This is Antananarivo, so do not expect things to be of the highest western standards for a bed and breakfast type inn. The inn is indeed old and there... More
