Great colonial ambiance, wonderful spa and very good restaurant.
A must to feel out of time.
We only spent a day waiting for our flight, the room on the 3 star area was adequate, way better than we feared from some comments on the web.
It is pricy though, european price.
If you have to spend some days relaxing in tana, and that you are not short on cash, that is a good pick.
There is even a casino if you have a few buck left.

Room Tip: 4 stars sound great, but we found the 3 stars really acceptable, large and clean.

We arrived at Hotel Corbert on Saturday 24th August. The receptionist was efficient and friendly as we were one of the first of our party to check in.

We checked in as our rooms were ready. When I arrived in my room I felt it was dusty and dark. I had also requested that they do not have any feathers in the room as I am highly allergic. Unfortunately they could not change the pillows as they only had pillows with feathers so they suggested I move to the La Varangue down the road which was a far more acceptable Hotel.

The Hotel Corbert cashiers also do not carry large amounts of cash so they could only exchange small values of Euro for Ariary which does not help. There is an exchange bureau about 100m away which they did not tell us about as I presume they wanted to do the exchange. They were all polite and helpful. Most staff could speak rudimentary English.

Room Tip: Apparently there may be some rooms that are better on the new side of the hotel.

This trap of a hotel is unavoidable, if booked for a mid-size conference in Madagascar. There simply is no alternative. The rooms' decor and access to hot water is not for the faint-hearted. Be brisk about requesting another room- everyone else will. Only Wifi access is in the Hotel Lobby. Avoid the hotel kitchen entirely, if you can. A few steps outside the entrance is a french Patisserie, which will sustain you for a few days. The hotel is a magnet for roadside sellers of trinkets and women holding up their abused children to collect your sympathy dollars. Utterly appalling.
The staff are kind and really try to please the guests, even though their very rudimentary english skills trip them up. The Hotel is good for your soul. It will remind you to revisit your values and sense of humour.

Room Tip: Ask for a view, which takes you to the better side. ask for the new side of the hotel, which has bee...

Despite its large size this hotel has very uneven (or no) standards of quality and service. You need luck for a very good stay and if you are out of luck you can have a poor one. First offered a very bad room. When asked for a change they agreed and for the same price gave me a much better one just across the hall. The service in the restaurant is excellent, yet the front desk staff act if they are doing a favor just talking to you. I have never received such bad service from front desk hotel staff as in this hotel. The area of the hotel can be considered cramped or charming depending of your preferences--but it does have character--unlike the Carlton. I may return but I will have to consider it carefully.

Stayed 4 separate nights during course of 2-week trip around Madagascar, upgrading to Deluxe room each time as these are invariably well-appointed (regular rooms vary) and most conveniently located (on the floors directly above the lobby). All were large attractive rooms with great views (2 had balconies), great beds, linens, towels & amenities.

Checking in & out was quick. Reception happily provided me with small bills (so I could tip the pleasant & efficient porters). Lobby WiFi was free & fast. Not a prostitute in sight!

Ordered twice from Room Service, my grilled ham & cheese sandwich with fries arrived well within the stated 20-minute window quoted upon ordering, well-prepared & tastefully presented. Breakfast buffet was well-stocked, eggs & crepes cooked to order also available from a delightful man stationed on the terrace, who delivered my order to my table when ready (and helped me practice my rudimentary French, tho he spoke excellent English). Other staff delivered coffee & cleared plates in a timely manner & with a smile.

Great location, close to shops & restaurants. A few (mild-mannered) hawkers and a single beggar woman with baby were sometimes patrolling outside the entrance, but I certainly never felt harassed upon arrival or departure, and hotel security was on hand to keep order if needed (which it was not).

So, absolutely no complaints, and I would definitely stay here again if ever I came back to Tana.
