The hotel itself has large, airy, modern rooms; a nice reception and lobby area; a lovely terrace; an open dining and bar area; and a pool. There is also... More

This is one of the best Hotels in Antananarivo. The Hotel looks like a house from outside. All the rooms are non-smoking rooms. The food is awsome. The kitchen staff also accomodates new dishes(if you want one to be prepared). The Hotel Manager is a french and is very genuine person. However, I personally had a bitter experience with him...

We are currently staying at the Tamboho. It is in the Tana Waterfront development and is, in my opinion one of if not the best hotels in Tana.
