Thank God there is this hotel for budget travelers in tana, fed-up of staying hotel Anjary, completely devastated facilities there.

Hotel since its new has all comfy facilities as described by fellow members. This morning had trouble connecting my laptop with avlbl wifi. Manager was so kind to spend 30 mins in setting it up. Lovely!!

Only complain so far possibly the small breakfast with no cereals nor eggs. Only coffee and bread butter...

For USD 45, its a VFM..

Location:
The hotel is located right in downtown. Its a safe area but it was obvious that at night the parameteres outside the hotel was a red light district. We were warned not to leave the hotel without our passports. Plenty of nearby restaurants and cafes with many shops and traders within walking distance.

Reception Area:
A small but well laid out area which also has a shoe cleaner and coffee maker at reception - expresso only! The reception staff speak some English and laundry or ironing is arranged at reception and clothes are returned back to the room.

Rooms:
Very spacious rooms with huge comfortable beds. Rooms have single beds, double and there are suites available which have a great sitting area as well. Rooms are fully carpeted, have AC, fan, dressing tables, cupboard and luggage stool. The bathroom is spacious with a huge shower room and well lit. The AC in the rooms are set at 22degrees and generally do not cool the rooms too much.

Ameneties:
The Hotel suffers from regular power cuts for no fault of its own. There is a back uo generator that kicks in but usually turned on at night and powers lights and fan but no AC. During day time we had a lengthy power cut that lasted nearly 6-8 hours. There is one lift that server to all floors and can get busy when a group checks in or out.

Breakfast:
Very dissapointing as only continental breakfast offered where you turn up and sit at the table and a waitress servers you a small peice of crossioant , small peice of bauguette, some butter and jam and a cup of tea. Omlette was available but at a charge. Luckily cafe nearby did offer breakfast should you needed to enjoy more than one croissoant.

Overall not a bad hotel for Africa especially Madagascar - not that many great buildings so to drive right into town and you see run down buildings and then a really well maintained hotel is comforting. I would rate this atleast 4* - especially for Africa.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the 1st or 2nd floor. With regular power cuts, its easy to take the stairs up and down the lobby!

I can thoroughly recommend the Central Hotel, Tana. The rooms are beautifully equipped,  and as it is a new hotel (opened in September 2011), everything is in perfect order. The beds are really comfortable and the shower and bathroom facilities are excellent.  The staff, in all areas of the hotel, could not be more helpful and attentive. The location is, as the name suggests, very central.

Booked it after reading the reviews on trip advisor which were all accurate. This is a very modern, clean hotel in a great location - very close to the heart of the city, many of the good restaurants and central to walk to places (during the day - don't venture out of a night without taking a cab!)

The rooms are very spacious and well equipped and bathrooms are amongst the best of any hotel I've stayed in. For the price this is fantastic value and definitely worth it. (I paid as much to stay in a far less luxurious hotel near the airport on my last night in Madagascar)Breakfast is good, but the hotel, whilst it offers meals at lunch & dinner, they are brought in from elsewhere - the only downside.

Don't book a taxi with them though from / to the airport. It is expensive and there is a great bus service that runs from the airport and drops off at all hotels requested for a fraction of the price.

Definitely more 4* than 3*.
