“A little treasure in Tana”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

A small boutique hotel but fantastic, friendly, welcoming staff and a great central location for your business trip in a secure gated compound. Food in the restaurant is fine too, and the breakfast is good. The hotel doesn't have a lobby bar so if you want a post-dinner drink after a day's work you won't get one, but otherwise this is the perfect business hotel. Rooms very comfortable and well laid out with all he amenities you need, including free and reasonably fast internet.

Dear Nick,
thanks a lot for your review.
I will print it for your staff to show them the result of their work.

And we will think about some drink at the reception then during the night, it would be possible to purchase your favorite drink.

Best regards

Dimitri

The Tamboho is a great hotel, from the warm friendly welcome to the comfy rooms this hotel is just great. The waterfront is a bit of a weird concept, even if you can see why it has been done. But this is the only thing that sits slightly off about this wonderful hotel. Loved staying here, will definitely return.

The simple Malagasy style is appealing as one steps into the quaint lobby. The staff are friendly and helpful; however, English is not widely spoken. The rooms are spacious and simple - not cluttered with meaningless hotel paraphernalia. One missing item though was an iron. The staff was though happy to iron my shirts for a price. The French/Malagasy restaurant offered up a very good selection of fresh tasting meals.

I have now stayed at Hotel Tamboho on numerous occassions and had both colleagues and guests sojourn there for business and leisure over the past year. The location is brilliant, the premises are exceptional and there are few places in the region that could rival the personal touch given by the staff. I recommend the kitchen highly and greatly appreciate the readily available wifi (included in room rate). The best part about staying there on a business trip is that it feels like a vacation! Looking forward to many more nights there in the coming months.

Room Tip: First floor rooms have a better view and are closer to reception area

I use to stay at Tamboho Hotel for all my business travel in Antananarivo. the hotel personnel is qualified and always ready to help. While it's located in one of the city's beautiful complex with shops, restaurants and other facilities, the top quality of bed rooms, free internet wi-fi and free soft drinks are surely most of the advantages offered by this establishment. I warmly recommend this place to any one visiting Madagascar.

Exceptionally comfortable modern hotel within a gated complex of shops and restaurants with an ATM just across the road. Multi-lingual professional and friendly staff ensured that everything went smoothly in a country often perceived as being disordered. The food here is top class and the portions are hefty. Our rooms were clean and comfortable and beautifully furnished with a mix of classic Malagasy decor and state of the art bathroom. Mosquitoes can be a nuisance but our room was supplied with electric mosquito repellants which kept them at bay. This hotel has really comfortable beds, soft pillows and lovely duvets perfect for bedding down in after a day in town.

I like this hotel for the fact that it provided me the comfortable experience.Although english speaking staff and Indian cousine are two issues the management can address if they wish to.The view is also good.I am of the opinion that these parts of world the real meaning of service is yet to be understood.Term hospitality has its own geographical limitions and understanding.I am happy with my stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for the balcony facing swimming pool...
