Each time we go a different room and each one was very very different. The first night was in the main building above tree restaurant. The room was large and comfortable. It was... More

A beautiful boutique hotel, located on a quiet street, well appointed, quiet and very comfortable at a great rate. Some amazing antiques and artifacts adorn the entire hotel. Dinner is superb - as is the breakfast. Will definitely be back!

We vistied here for a meal as a bit of a treat when in Tana at the end of our honeymoon. The building and its collections are worth a visit along but the food really was very good. OK so in comparison to restaurant prices in Madagascar it's up there but if you were to eat a plate of food... More

Tana can be challenging but La Varangue is a lovely, stately island of calm and respite. To its quirky collections, excellent restaurant and lovely colonial features, you add a wonderful terrace overlooking the city, highly professional service, reliable internet and beautifully appointed rooms. A respite for the adventurer.

The staff could not have been more accommodating to my frequently changing travel plans. I stayed in two very different rooms and scoped out some others. Each room is unique with a nice modern bathroom. Breakfast included fresh fruit juice and amazing pain au chocolate, and the ever helpful staff got up early to prepare an early than usual breakfast... More

My husband and I had an incredible dining experience here during our trip to Madagascar. The food and wine was amazing and we'd highly recommend the restaurant to anyone visiting Tana. The service was also very professional.

perched on the hillside in the center town of Madagascar's capital is an unpretentious, low profile boutique hotel reminiscent of Tana's French colonial grandeur. It is like living in a "museum" with endless collection of period gramophone, telephone, watches, oil lamps, typewriter, you name it. if you're into culture and into love of precious old things. this is a "must"...
