“Perfect - both charm and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

Of all the hotels we stayed in during our trip around Madagascar this turned out to be the best. A bit surprising since it's not ranked as a luxurious one. But perhaps that's actually why, no snobbish feeling and you can tell that they really enjoy serving their guests.

The hotel is an old charming villa that has a very personal and quirky interior design. We had dinner nearby at a good French bistro, and there seems to be many alternatives to dine at close by.

The rooms are quiet (double soundproofed doors!), has modern bathrooms and very comfortable beds with new linen.

A superb and extensive breakfast and a very attentive and kind service made it a perfect place to return to in Tana.

We had one last night in Madagascar after a month of adventures on our honeymoon . We were upgraded into their biggest room which was full of character . The breakfast was delicious and the hotel was a real haven of peace and tranquility in the middle of Tana which we were not that crazy about . The day of our departure my wife really struggled with stomach cramps , the flight to Europe was not until 2 am and we requested to rent a room at a friendly price for a couple of hours so that she could lie down . The manager at 7 pm did not hesitate and offered it for free which we were incredibly grateful for. This is a place that has soul and deserves their success.

We were not looking forward to our 2 day stay in Antananarivo but this hotel soon changed our mind. A hotel with great character we had an apartment with a terrific balcony. The staff were fun and friendly. The breakfasts were some of the best we had in Madagascar. Around the hotel are some very good restaurants. Highly recommended.

Great value hotel (with the exception of extortionate airport taxi transfers – best to look elsewhere to book these). The location is brilliant, with several of Tana's best restaurants within walking distance (some also deliver to the hotel) and the historic house/building where breakfast (included) is served is beautiful. The best perks of this hotel for us were the lovely terrace area, and free daily pedicures/manicures. The staff were exceedingly friendly and patient.

Room Tip: Request a suite in the new part of the hotel with a terrace

Beautiful room, very clean with loads of character. Breakfast was excellent, great variety and even got fried eggs as a bonus, the only hotel that offered this during my 2 weeks in Madagascar. Immaculate bathroom facilities and wifi connection was simple to make, and the help offered by Fanirina of reception was absolutely fantastic! Will definitely stay here again.

Quiet location with large rooms (we had an enclosed balcony sitting area and helpful staff (we left bags there whilst we travelled "light" to north Madagascar). Take care with the hot water as it is very hot!!! Breakfast we thought was good, with eggs and fresh pastries and bread. There was always free tea, coffee and chocolate in the lounge. My wife thought the free massage was interesting - more like just rubbing oil for 40 mins - but hey it was free. Good restaurants close by (Kudeta) and awake security staff!!!

I stayed here for 2 nights (Beginning of Jan 2012) after a long 14 day travel to the South/East of Madagascar with Espace Mada Tour agency ( This agency was absolutely amazing. Affordable, fantastic vehicle, kind and endearing English speaking driver with incredible driving skills. I'm adding this to my review because we needed some suggestions about a tour operator but TripAdvisor doesn't have this as an option at the moment. SO, here is their website: http://www.madagascar-circuits.com/)..
Anyhow, Le Pavillon was exactly what we needed. We were recuperating from some unfortunate stomache problems and the hotel provided a safe, clean and very comfortable place. Our room even had an extra sitting room. The bathroom was large, clean and well equipped with hot water. The breakfast was very pleasant and plentiful with fruit, breads, cheeses and made-to-order egg dishes. In addition, there is a small sitting room that has coffee/tea/biscuits all day long (We took advantage and sat there for a bit reading books). There was also a free massage included in the price of the room! The staff was helpful and the internet worked easily in our room (wifi). We did not order the taxi with the hotel, but through another driver we had met when we first arrived (it was about 10 euros cheaper.. don't know why). The hotel is in safe walking distance to 3 restaurants which other reviewers have confirmed. Finally, in case of bad weather or the need to stay in our rooms, we had access to DVDs and a DVD player in our room (which we enjoyed immensely due to the condition of our exhausted bodies).
I can't say enough wonderful things about this place. I only can imagine that negative reviews (especially posted about services during late January and February) could perhaps be contributed to the fact that this time period is the "off season" in Mada and perhaps they were understaffed or ill prepared for visitors during this time.

Room Tip: Our room was upstairs and included a small sitting area (literally through a set of glass doors)
