In the centre of Tana this hotel gave us a nice and secure feel. The decoration is pretty and gives you an immediate Madagascar smile. The rooms are clean and cozy. The food was not our favourite point of this hotel but was ok, with a special mention for the lunch buffet. Our room gave on the interior court where...

This is a truly hidden gem. Location is superb. Its rooftop restaurant is excellent. The place itself its decorated with historic objects and memorabilia. Walking distance from virtually any place in the city , the area is very calm.

Good hotel in Tana with good breakfast (note that it might be much cheaper if you don't take the buffet but rather order a la carte), nice decorated rooms with rainshower and normal shower and free wifi. We stayed twice for 1 night and were happy with both stays. Also a must-go is the Sakamanga restaurant for great food, but...

As other reviewers have said, this place is very bohemian. We stayed here for one night in the beginning and one night at the end of our trip. Each time we stayed in different rooms. One room was quite traditional and the other was very artsy and quirky. In both, they were clean and comfortable. The staff isn't terribly friendly...

Sakamanga is a very popular hotel in Tana. Their lunch buffet is popular too. So you can imagine how many people are around in the reception at check out time and in the restaurant at lunch time. The staff were very helpful in Sakamanga. They helped us arranged a car to Andasibe when we needed one. Our room was facing...

A very pretty hotel, with everything you can possibly need. Great restaurant, nice pool area, boutique, massage, you name it. The best hotel in Tana if you ask me. The express food restaurant just next door (delivering to the pool side) is also a must!

On arrival at the hotel we were kept waiting at reception for quite a while. This was the only hotel (out of ten hotels on our tour of Madagascar) where we weren't allowed to complete the arrival car in our room. When we finally got to our room we were amazed by the design. It was very quirky and my...

The Sakamanga hotel is a great hotel to stay at in Antananarivo. The hotel has a great atmosphere with its many corridors and decoration. The room standard is much above average and the garden and pool area is cozy. Worth a visit.

I had a wonderful room although there was little light and the bed was not that comfortable. Large bathroom with an open shower. Most of the rooms require the climbing of stairs. Check out was bizarre with the large amount of tourists present trying to change money, get change or store baggage. The restaurant was average and the service was...
