“Great for airport, otherwise stay in Tana”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2010

As mentioned by other reviewers, if you are arriving late and leaving early or need use of a "day room" near the airport then this is great. Food mediocre, but we did enjoy a bottle of rather good wine!

Really liked this simple, clean and friendly hotel (with pool!) and good restaurant. Used it as our Tana base at the start and end of our trip to Madagascar. Ideal - would return again.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2008

The hotel (not a guesthouse) is nice enough - modern rooms and bathrooms, clean, quiet, AC that works, big plasma TV (though Madagascar channel surfing options are pretty limited). Pool looked nice. Best of all, 10 minutes from airport and not subject to the congestion that can trap you if you start in Tana proper. Very good for a late arrival in Tana followed by an early departure, which given airline schedules in Madagascar, is a fair bet you will have to do at least once.

BUT, we had two problems that would cause us not to go back if we could find a better choice. One was that the restaurant served some of the poorest food we found in the Country, very disappointing considering the generally good quality of food on the Island; plus it was the most expensive meal we had on the entire trip. Food was overcooked, tasteless, poorly sauced, no redeeming features at all. (Breakfast was good however.)

Second problem was the staff. Our reservation was totally mishandled, the only time in Madagascar we had that problem. Reception kept wanting us to sign in under the wrong name and passport number, just because they had a spare form already filled in! More critical, we needed an early wake up call to catch our flight, and worked hard to make sure this was understood. Despite staff assurances, the call never came - fortunately our alarm worked!

So, not a disaster, but not very good either.

  • Liked — Convenience to airport, decent nights sleep
  • Disliked — Restaurant and staff among poorest we found in Madagascar
