It is not difficult to see why this hotel is number 1 on Tripadvisor in Antananarivo. We stayed at the Lokanga on the first night of our honeymoon. It had been something of a culture shock arriving in Antananarivo - the only city in the world with no traffic lights and apparently no pavements either! The Lokanga was a complete contrast from the hustle and bustle of the airport - tucked away down a long flight of steps which means it is totally secluded, yet with the most spectacular views of the city. It has only six rooms so it feels very exclusive. The staff could not have been more helpful, and bent over backwards to make our short stay special from the moment we arrived. Fabiola, the manager, was utterly charming, as were Ellouard and Vero.
Our room on the first floor had a gloriously comfortable four poster bed with mosquito nets and fabulously soft Egyptian cotton sheets. We had a huge veranda, again with spectacular views. The small sitting room had a cosy log fire in the evening (just about cold enough to need it, and a lovely touch) and the food was astonishingly good with an excellent evening menu and a hearty breakfast to send us on our way. We will definitely be back!
