We spent our first 2 nights in Tana here and were very glad we chose it for our introduction to the city. It's on one of the city's hills so you get great views from the rooms. It is ten minutes walk to Anakely Market (which it directly overlooks) and Ave de l'lndependance and about 10 minutes in a taxi to anywhere else you're likely to want to go. It's an interesting building, with something of the ski chalet about it (sloped roof and pale wood interiors). We had a large room with a huge bed and a nice balcony (sadly lacking furniture). The decor is fairly simple with a few Madagascan touches. The restaurant is fine though, due to the aforementioned ski chalet-ness, slightly lacking in atmosphere. Food is very good and they rustled up a tasty veggie option at short notice. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking town is great.
The spa treatments we had were good but not revolutionary and the pool was closed when we wanted to use it as they were scraping varnish off the surrounding wood. I really think this could have been done in the early morning or evening.
There was intermittent wifi in our room and reception.
The staff were friendly at all times and very helpful when it came to booking restaurants and flagging down taxis for us.
