I am kenyan i stayed at La Maison during a work trip to Antananarivo in May 2013. it was a fantastic four days . The rooms are clean, quiet and homely with a relaxed ambience.
The host is very warm and helpful, she communicates very well in english as this is a french speaking country. The food was amazing well done. If in Antananarivo again i wouldn't think twice about staying at La Maison du Phyla guest house
