We stayed there for New Year night. Room was big on the attic floor. There was a New Year party in the hotel's restaurant, it was really funny and nevertheless it didn't disturb us when we went to sleep. Staff cooked good breakfast for us in the morning (it was a morning of 1 January!!). We enjoyed nice city view down from restaurant terrace. Also the hotel has good spa with open-air pool but the day was cold for swimming. This hotel is comfortable for most people: travellers, families with children, businessmen etc.

This is our second trip to Madagascar, and our second time staying at the Palissandre. The rooms are spacious with very nice furnishings. The dining is excellent, we've been there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The view from the dining room and patio and the rooms is great. Service in all aspects was first class, plentiful and friendly.
This time we stayed there on three separate occasions, and so we left laundry and souvenirs to be picked up when we got back, this worked flawlessly.
We also stayed at their sister establishment Palissandre Cote Ouest on the beach at Morondava and it was excellent as well.

We stayed at the hotel just one night, but it was an amazing experience. The room was very good (love the hard wooden floors and furniture), but the restaurant took our breath away!

The view from the hotel is also beautiful - overlooking the city both from the rooms and from the restaurant.

The room itself was good sized and had a very comfortable king size bed. Additionally the furniture was very nice - made of hard wood. Finally everything was very clean.

The restaurant has a very nice seating area inside and also outside on the veranda. The service staff are super friendly. They were very helpful, always smiling (and they meant it!). Funny thing they had karaoke playing for Christmas evening dinner. After the official singing part was over...the staff also started singing Christmas songs while cleaning up... somebody was on the mike and others were singing along around the restaurant area. It was an amazingly warm experience that is hard to describe,.

Room Tip: 1st floor is just as high as the others (the hotel is on a hill), so just make sure you are facing t...

Great hotel - very clean and we had one of the larger rooms which was spacious and comfortable. The food at breakfast and evening meal was very good, staff were very helpful and we had the most amazing massage ever in the hotel which I would highly recommend as very good value. Also a great location as easy to get around centre of Tana (although we did take taxis at night) I would recommend.

Nice rooms, Good food, Attentive service and a central location are what make this hotel an excellent choice. The free WIFI ( that works!) and the gorgeous use of palissandre wood throughout the hotel are a bonus.

There is a spa area in the hotel that we did not make use of, thus cannot comment on it's attributes.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the city as opposed to one on the street side.

The hotel is excellent but arriving just after 2000 Sunday evening to eat was a disaster. They only do a grill and virtually everything was gone - if you like liver and kidney you could eat. We tried to order a glass of wine but were told only Madagascar wine was available by the glass even though others were listed. Having tried it we were not drinking more so decide to go elsewhere. Suddenly service improved and decent wine by the glass was available.
We returned for a further two nights later during the week and the food and wine could not be faulted. Just ensure your visit is during the week and you will eat well.
If you have an early flight they will give you a packed breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for one at the back that overlooks the town.
