The hotel Calypso is a real jewel in a dump of a town. I stayed there for the night on my way to the Pangalanes Canal. My room had been very tastefully decorated and included a comfortable bed and flat screen TV with BBC World and several other channels. The bathroom was very comfortable with a shaving mirror, good lighting, large tub with lots of hot water and separate shower and loo. Even the door had an alarm on it that sounded if you hadn’t closed it properly! Whoever designed the room had given it a lot of thought and it was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Unfortunately wifi was only available in the restaurant and hotel lobby. Reception/booking service were very helpful and answered emails promptly. The restaurant was good although the hot foie gras was rather meagre and thin but the zebu steak was good. Breakfast was a buffet and provided the widest choice of my entire trip around Magascar; freshly cooked eggs to order, cereals, delicious natural yoghurt and pastries. I wish I could have stayed longer!
