“Good View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

Nice place to stay! was on business for a short duration. It is centrally located and very close to the lake in Tana. The hotel had a cordial and welcoming staff and a bit of some interesting shops on the reception floor. The restaurant overlooking the large pool was good, serving breakfast. Cafe charly in the night during dinner.

Room Tip: Higher floors give a good view of the city below and the lake opposite.

I think it is fair to say that the Carlton Hotel is probably the best place for business people to stay whilst visiting Antananarivo in Madagascar. The hotel is well situated and the staff are welcoming and helpful. The rooms are adequate with decent wi-fi available. The brochures mention a charge for wi-fi, but it was given to me for free (which was most appreciated as I hate having to pay additonal costs in top hotels for the internet). The hotel has a very nice restaurant which serves excellent zebu steaks (if you like your meat "medium", I'd suggest that you order it "well done") and the only little gripe that I would have is with regard to breakfast - but that's only because I'm a bacon and eggs man and the hotel serves a more French variety of breakfast which includes cheese, cold meat and some indecipherable stews. Generally, the Carlton is highly recommended as the place to stay.

Having visited Tana for a of a month earlier this year I made the Carlton part of my daily procedure. While I did not actually stay at the hotel, I signed up with a monthly membership at the fitness centre, tennis and pool, and frequented the restaurant as well as used the business centre where they have a very fast internet. The pool and bar area was my hideout in the city. A great place to meet people. The pizzas are great and all staff are super friendly and professional. In all, I don't think I could have survived my stay in the city without the Carlton!

We started our tour of Madagascar at this conveniently placed hotel. It had an inviting reception with helpful staff making you very welcome which is always a good thing after an over night flight from the UK. Rooms were reasonable fitted out and very comfortable. Had problems with the room safe but staff sorted this out very quickly. The evening meals in the restaurant were of a good qulaity and very well presented. The serving staff were very helpful and friendly. We felt very safe.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the lake have the better views. Higher floors allow a panoramic view of Tana giving...

A comfortable hotel in a good location. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good.
Whilst there we visited the Lemur Park a short drive outside the city. It was in a lovely location and well set up with close up access to the lemurs in a very natural setting. Well worth a visit.

This is the third time I have enjoyed the hospitality of the Staff of the Carlton Hotel in Antananarivo. I have always been impressed with the personal touch I have received from all levels of staff from management downwards.
On this occasion I was totally blown away when the waitress in the breakfast room recognized me and remembered from my previous visit a year before that I enjoyed decafiennated coffee with my breakfast.
A great venue for a business trip to Antananarivo

Room Tip: Request a room facing the lake. The sunrise views are stunning
