Tamboho Hotel

Antananarivo, Madagascar

Bronze price level

Mango Opinion

This is a modern option in a nice gated community in Tana. This is nice if you want to walk around a bit, do some shopping and meander a bit. Great value for a nice hotel.

Conveniently located on the Antananarivo Water Front, Hotel Tamboho offers visitors a haven of peace and quiet just minutes from the busy city center. Standing on the banks of a small lake and surrounded by rice fields on the one hand, and various shops on the other, the Tamboho has a lovely blend of traditional Malagasy architecture and western comfort.

The best craftsmen in the capital were invited to share their expertise showcasing local materials such as rosewood. The result is a mixture of both authentic and original contemporary design with a warm ambiance. The 30 guest rooms are spread over three levels. Guest rooms are decorated with light wood bamboo floors, large beds and bathrooms with modern design. Bright and spacious, each room has air conditioning, Internet access, a flat screen TV and a safe. With the peaceful views over the lake and its shaded terrace, the restaurant offers classic recipes with local Malagasy flavors. 

Antananarivo is full of history and culture. As the largest city on the island of Madagascar, it has been an economic and political hub since well before colonization. In the city and in the surrounding areas, all eighteen of the Malagasy ethnic groups can be found providing a rich exploratory experience. Surrounding the city are three ridges that intersect at their highest point. The Manjakamiadana royal palace is located at the summit of these hills and is visible from every part of the city and the surrounding hills.
