Lokanga is a beautiful house at the top of Antananarivo. It boasts excellent views over the city, showing the whole of Antananarivo, and the smog!Our rooms were lovely and the staff were very friendly. We had a lovely meal, and they were very accommodating to our son, who was feeling a little off colour after a long car ride.

We stayed at this boutique hotel on our arrival and again for a few days prior to departure from Madagascar. It is on one of the highest points of the city and the views from the balconies and restaurant are outstanding, especially during sunset. It's an older building, but very nicely decorated and appointed. Our room was smallish but the... More

We definitely prefer the modern, minimalist look, so of all people could be the ones to complain about this place.....but it utterly won us over. We stayed twice at the start and end of our trip. The first time it was a novelty and the second time it was like coming home. It does feel a bit like staying in... More

The hotel is in a colonial era house with each room a different style. The view is great of the balconies. The breakfast was a bit sparse , the evening meal was ok. The rooms were dark and poorly ventilated if you open the Windows the room fills with mosquitos and if not you roast

We loved this hotel for its warm welcome, friendly staff, large comfortable rooms and stunning views over Tana. The french owner was lovely, with lots of helpful suggestions and advice about what to see and do (and what to be careful about!). I would highly recommend the restaurant, even if you're not staying at the hotel. There was a good... More

What can we say about this hotel? Just that it is a real surprising experience in 1930's years style in Tana. Great service and food, great view on Tana and the rooms are just romantic! Thank you for the great experience!

We stayed here on our first night in Madagascar. A lovely characterful house, tastefully decorated. Our room was large with a good size bathroom. Slight shame there was only a shower attachment for the bath rather than a shower. The terrace is lovely with a view over the city, The staff are friendly, professional and very willing to help.

My wife and I stayed here on our first and then last night in Antananarivo. It really was a great introduction to the city after our arrival. The view over the city is truly amazing and provides a good perspective of its layout. It's located high on a hill close to the palace. Keep in mind that it is a... More

In the heights of Madagascar, romantic and with stupendous views over the city Great food, great service + buffet breakfast (which is rare in Mada). Rooms are clean and somehow romantic. Nb 2 & 3 have a private (shared) terrace. Located very close from the queen palace.

We spent two individual nights at Lokanga as it served as the hub to our spoke visits in Madagascar. Excellent location which afforded us a beautiful view of the city from our balcony. The room was charming. Not sure what's available in Tana but this hotel certainly worked for us. We enjoyed our dinners here and the conversation with staffers... More
