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!
