I stayed with some friends for one night at Mellis at the start of our Madagascar tour. The hotel is not too far from the airport, a reason why we chose it. Unfortunately, the website shows the hotel in a better light than it actually is. In reality, the place is quite worn down. The pool was very dirty with debris. It does not reflect its name “Grand Mellis Hotel & Spa”; it’s rather a one star guesthouse.
The room (no. 202) has A/C and a TV (only French & Madagascan channels). There is only a small soap bar in the bathroom. There is only one power plug under the desk, to charge more devices at the same time one needs to unplug the bedside lamp.
The breakfast (sort of buffet) is basic, pretty much what you will have in any of the mid-range hotels across Madagascar with some baguette, croissant, fruits.
A good thing is that the internet works quite well, and the staff is friendly and trying to make it right.
The place is ok for a one night stop at the start / end of the tour.
