“Central location, average hotel”
Reviewed November 3, 2011

This is an OK hotel to stay if you are only going to be one night in Antananarivo. It is very centrally located in the Haute Ville, making it easy to walk around and explore the area. The rooms are basic, but clean. There is free internet usage in the lobby. I did not find the staff very helpful when I asked questions about the local area and or for dining suggestions. They only wanted to steer me to their restaurant, a rather mediocre Italian place around the corner from the hotel entrance. I would skip the restaurant completely. The included breakfast is decent.

Simple but great things i find :

Rooms, are very clean and the mattress really confortable...who knows madagascar can understand how much is difficult to find it...

Service is great and the receptionist are so carefully to make you happy....this time somebody was running for me in the main road to find the cheapest taxi for my request !!!

Very nice Restaurant (italian excellent quality and good price but also some special "Malagasy" food).

Internet is free with wi-fi and one desktop for the guests.

Position is at the center of the town but is very quite and no traffic during the day and specially in the night.

Next time....Chalet wait me again!

great service and super affordable rooms! the french bread in the morning was divine. There's a lovely italian restaurant at the hotel, also a short from lovely french pastry shops :) i loved the staff, very welcoming and although they speak mostly french, they were willing to understand us. nice and spacious rooms, newly renovated and nice lovely showers, recommend it highly!

We had originally booked Hotel Naiouly, having been put off Chalet des Roses by the indifferent reviews on this site. Big mistake - see my review of that hotel! We had three separate nights at Chalet des Roses, staying in rooms 205, 305 and 201. All three rooms were on the front but we had no disturbance at all, contrary to other reviews. All three rooms were in spotless condition with 305 being the best, particularly for its shower facilities. I think that they have all been refitted fairly recently. The only downside to the hotel is that the restaurant (fro dinner) is in the street behind which means going out of the hotel and downhill through an alley. Breakfast is in the hotel foyer and was very adequate. However we could not get breakfast at 5:30am before an early flight. Staff were extremely helpful and th ehotel has free wireless and cabled internet access, plus a PC for general use in the foyer.

We also stayed in room 208 (at rear but updated)and my daughter stayed in 206 (at front but updated) and both rooms were very good. However for the first night of our tour we were moved to room 205 (at front and tired) and the difference was startling. Mouldy old shower curtain, smelt of smoke and mould and watch out opening the wardrobe if you have fan on! Also front rooms were much noisier than the rooms at rear. They were otherwise clean but if you can score room 208 or similar you are far better off.
Work was occurring upstairs so maybe they will update this room in time.
Overall in context of Tana good value for money as it is relatively cheap.
Best aspect is the safe location although whether that will change once the US embassy moves to its new location when built out towards airport, who knows. Close by to market and ATM's with restaurant in rear street with steps past US embassy so safe at night due to security presence.
Supermarket a short walk away.
A little english was spoken and together with basic french you can get understood and the staff were always helpfull.
