Lovely rooms, good service, sited overlooking a small lake so good for watching birds. Air-con was good and the wi-fi a tad slow but workable, whilst the restaurant was nicely sited, small scale and had very good service. I had not stayed here before but I will be back.

I stayed here for six nights in November 2016. I had a room which opened onto the lovely granite lined pool. Four steps and I was at poolside. Breakfasts are included:eggs (ask for these) made to order, and a full buffet of fruit, cheeses, meats, rice, beans, tartes, bread, jams and so on. The location on a private compound allows...

We stopped for lunch, which was very good, tasty and well-presented. The caramelised pork chop and the pakchoy and goat's cheese salad are recommended. The staff were excellent. The dining room overlooked a large pond and rice fields and we were well entertained by the birdlife.

I have stayed here twice in the last month. The first time resulted in an inferior room with little light in the bathroom and a mirror that was mounted on the wrong wall for anyone wanting to shave or put on makeup (located on ground floor). The second time resulted in an improved room (2nd floor) and a better lit...

Hotel was clean and modern. Desk staff very attentive and helpful, even calling our next (unrelated) hotel to confirm our reservation and check details of our upcoming stay. Restaurant has a decent menu and good service.

I think it is the best secure place in Tana. I enjoy the hotel and the welcome. It is a small village within Tana with a food court. We are far from the unsecured and poor condition of life inTana center.

This little hotel is located in the French expat district of Tana, in a gated compound that sets it aside from the hustle and bustle of frenetic Tana. The rooms are simple, but very attractively appointed, comfortable, and clean. Staff is very friendly. Bottled water is available for guests in little refrigerators in the halls - a very nice touch!...

Located in a more up market part of Antananarivo, a little outside the downtown mayhem and traffic, the hotel Tamboho works pretty well in the local context (where I would rate it higher). The rooms are clean, decent enough and quiet even though mine was on the street side, there is bottled water in the fridges in the corridor, and...
