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.

I stayed here for several nights and it was my central staging area as I flew back and forth during my 3 week stay in Madagascar The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful (though most speak...

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"...

This hotel is located very close to the presidential palace, about 18 KM from the airport. The staff are helpful, friendly and efficient. The decor of the main building is a collection of interesting antiques and curio that provide a pleasant distraction.

When we planned our trip to Tana we made sure we had a booking at La Varangue. We were not disappointed, the food, wine and setting on the courtyard were superb. It was one of the few places I have been to where I was tempted to take photos of the plates as they come out, it looked so good.... More
