We stayed here for the first and last nights of our trip to Madagascar in October 2013. the room was clean and well decorated. The staff and food were excellent. It was located on a quiet street and was a great intro to the very welcoming atmosphere of this wonderful country

Situated on the periphery of the better location in Tana, La Ribaudiere is characteristic of a certain type of hotel in Madagascar: there are rooms above the restaurant, rooms in a building a few doors down the street, and more rooms on the second floor above commercial space across the street. All different. The 'annex' rooms are newer with sound...

I am actually still staying in the hotel, but very confident to recomment this place to any leisure or business travaller coming to Antananarivo, Madagascar. Freindly staff. Great garden terrace. A restaurant second to none in the region. Comfortable rooms. Free and fast Wifi. And all of this at a surprisingly low price.

I chose this hotel because I read the food in the restaurant was very good. We stayed here for 1 night and was very happy with my choice. The rooms are a little worn unlike the photos on their website but it had everything we needed for a short stay, TV, hairdryer and airconditioning. The restaurant is what made this...

My room was across the road from the reception/restaurant, up a rather murky alleyway. The room was clean and spacious, but the furnishings were very basic,...

The rooms are charming and the food is 2nd to none! We have been to Madagascar twice for a total of 6 weeks and have eaten at many restaurants. The hotel restaurant here is probably one of the best, if not the best in Tana. The rooms we stayed in were cozy and charming, air conditioned(necessary much of the time...

I was in Tana for a group tour but came a few days early (because that was the date the airline gave me for a frequent flyer flight) and stayed at La Ribaudiere for 4 nights. I was very happy there. Yes, the room was a tad small, but that doesn't bother me at all. It was clean, it was...

Stayed at this hotel on a short business trip to Antananarivo. Booked through booking.com, and that worked perfectly. The rooms at La Ribaudiere are fairly basic, but very clean, and with all the essentials. Beds were comfortable (I was in a twin) and there is a good satellite TV system. Very good for Francophones, but at least BBC World was...
