When I walked into La Medina, my first impression was promising. I chose the warm oil massage and as I waited, was offered warm tea (delicious). When I got to the massage room, it was freezing! The masseuse offered to get a heater, which made it slightly better. The massage itself was awful: the masseuse clearly was just pressing as... More

While the combo of a cafe/restaurant/spa may seem odd, it works perfectly at Medina. I visited several times during my stay in Tana. They have excellent wifi, and a great selection of small plates for lunch. After booking a massage (which was wonderful, affordable, and professional), my husband met me for dinner. They have a great selection of foods from... More

I've been here now for two consecutive nights and even if the pricing is a bit steep for Madagascar it is still well worth it. The place is clean and fresh and the services are done by friendly professionals. There are no "extra services" available and that is a good thing in this city...

Located within walking distance of hotels Colbert, Tana, Varangue and Louvre. My husband and I found Le Medina while taking a walk. It is a pleasant place, delightfully decorated with an Arabian nights feel. The available massages on offer are very many. Management are clear no sex services are available, a welcome relief from the city vice of underage prostitution.... More
