6/10 Good

So so for a solo
As a solo female, I found the area to be a bit worrisome to go out and about. Although most staff spoke English, the lady that checked me in had limited language skills and that prevented me from getting a guide through the hotel. The elevator did not work, which was an issue with my luggage. The restaurant was nice and the staff was helpful. The outside area was nice.

8/10 Very good

This is a modern, clean, French-style boutique hotel at a great location. However, when we checked in, the front desk gave us the wrong room which turned out to be an occupied room. They quickly switched us back to a different room. But this time we noticed that the window was opened and there were about 100 mosquitoes on the ceiling, so my husband had to call them to switch our room. We were told that they were sold out for the night for our room type, but they were able to let us stay a different room for the night until they resolve the problem the next day. We were pleased with their way of handling the situation and thought their service was good. Overall I would say this is a great hotel in Madagascar and is trying hard to keep up with the international high-end hotel standard. The only thing we didn't like too much was there were too many staff working or standing at the front desk and restaurant during the day, which made us feel quite uncomfortable while having breakfast. Otherwise, I would recommend anyone to stay here during their visit in Tana.

Really lovely little boutique hotel - lovely rooms which are clean and very chic. The staff are very friendly. They arranged transfers which were really useful and reasonably priced. The terrace and bar are wonderful - lovely view over the valley. Great base to explore the city.

The property is nice and clean. The rooms are small, but the beds are OK, and the bathroom is clean. I stayed a week for some local business. The location was easy walking to some nice restaurants
