Stayed here for 1 night. Loved the decor of the hotel. So many antiquesitems and cars. It's like a little museum. The room is clean, beautiful and spacious. The bed is really comfortable and there is a nice little garden just outside the room where I chanced upon a African tortoise. Service was great as well.

There are not many options if you want to stay in a decent hotel in Tana. La Varangue is one of those good options and it is located close to The Presidential Palace. We stayed here for 3 nights and two times we have received a room at 1st floor the so called deluxe room and once in the small garden. Room no.2 is great as area with complimentary bathrobes and slippers and with a bathroom with bathtube. You also recieve complimentary water on the first day. Rooms are quite large and are equipped with TV, A/C, comfy bed with anti mosquito net, safe, minibar. Breakfast is average and it consists from eggs (btw we have waited for 15-20 mins to arrive our hard boilled eggs - a big minus), fresh orange juice, cheese, ham, croissants, pain au chocolat, cereals, tea and coffee. The other issue that we have were the mosquitos that will try to eat you alive from thhe moment you step in the room. The hotel should spray more frequently the rooms and the garden to reduce the numbers of mosquitos. The hotel has also a collection of old cars (Mercedes, Renault, Citroen) that will impress you from the moment you step on the property. Overall it was an ok experience probably we will consider this hotel also for the next stay in Tana.

We booked a standard room at La Varangue and got upgraded to a suite - we think because of low occupancy at the time. We had two beautiful rooms and a patio. The included breakfast was terrific. Good location.

The rooms are small, however, we spent a lot of time in the lovely restaurant. It is a must see with eclectic collections. The food was not bad, however, they need to expand their choices to include more vegetarian and vegan options. Need more English speaking staff on board

We had a fantastic stay here for 2 nights during our honeymoon. We ate at the reataurant twice (once they kept a table late for us, once we had a reservation) and both times were fantastic. The room was lovely and clean with a community porch outside. The staff spoke good English and were very helpful. We would highly recommend both the restaurant and the hotel, but the restaurant is full every night so I think a reservation is compulsory!

It is a good choice to stay here. Very neat decoration of the hotel and the room. Room was well equipped even with a small terrace. Quite location. Breakfast buffet was comparably good. Dinner was ok but not as good as some reviews suppose. Overall a good choice

Stayed here before and after a walking holiday. Would recommend. The only thing it could do with is a proper outside bar area - maybe I was there at the wrong time but if there was one it was not fully functioning. Food excellent - regained the lbs I had walked off

We stayed at La Varangue twice, and had very different experiences. One room was in the old part of the inn. Although the lobby and common areas of the inn are charming, the older rooms less so. They are more tired and dated than “charming.” There was very worn indoor-outdoor carpeting in the bathroom, and there was absolutely no sound insulation. Our room was directly over the restaurant. It wasn’t simply a matter of being able to hear sounds from the restaurant — it sounded as if the conversations were actually taking place inside our room. We were up until 1:00 in the morning due to the noise from the restaurant. I would rate our experience in this room as mediocre at best. The second room was a very nicely refurbished room in the adjacent annex. The bathroom was modern, as was the furniture. The room had new windows with excellent soundproofing. We slept like babies! We were delighted with this room. Bottom line: your experience can vary tremendously depending on which room you get. I’d strongly recommend one of the new rooms.

We selected this hotel for the end of our tour because of the restaurant and when we arrive to stay at the hotel, were told there is no room. Even worse we have to have a guard walk us to a restaurant up the road. Tried to discuss the issue with reception and they could not have cared less.

A beautiful, small hotel tucked away by the Presidential Palace, conveniently close to Tana's attractions in the High Town. We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our trip and 1 at the end. Our room was large and airy, with a small private courtyard outside. Very comfy bed! Super bathroom with lots of hot water. The whole hotel, indoors and out, is jammed full of antique collections which give it a quaint European feel. The dinner menu is decidedly French - we had a delicious meal but as there is only one vegetarian option we ate out on the other evenings. Breakfast was a wonderful continental buffet, taken on the terrace overlooking the garden. Excellent coffee, juices, croissants etc. The tortoises entertain but the big fluffy dog also deserves a mention. It's not the cheapest hotel but it is great value for money. A very special place - highly recommended!
