“How delightful!!!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Try trekking around Madagascar for six weeks. You will crave a hot shower with good water pressure. You will crave the feeling of cleanliness and security. You will crave a delicious coffee or hot chocolate in a beautiful cafe with a fire. You will hope for friendly, caring staff. Belvedere gave me all of the above. The housekeepers even washed my taxi-brusse clothing that I wanted to throw away. It came back so clean, I reconsidered :)
If you're stupid enough to walk around a developing country unaware, then maybe the other review will dissuade you, but don't worry. At night, you can either stay in the hotel or get a cab somewhere. There are plenty of good restaurants and clubs in walking distance. I didn't have a problem. It's a new hotel, and super clean. I highly recommend it, and I'm a single, American female traveler.

Hello,
I do not usually respond to very positive reviews but yours my particularly affected and I want to thank you. It makes you want to continue to work to maintain a certain quality, something not always easy. I especially appreciated your e lucidity awareness about the country you visited, something apparently not obvious to everyone. ...
thank you

Stayed here a few nights at beginning and end of a fortnights tour of Madagascar. Accommodation is spotless and spacious. Wi if worked well for us. The restaurant offers tasty meals and very good service. The extensive city views from the many terraces and restaurant offer interesting sightings as well as a welcome cool breeze. The more salubrious part of town is to the right of the hotel on the Main Street nearby, whilst the market areas are more to the left but all reached within a few minutes walk. Restaurants nearby too.

Room Tip: High floor

Very nice hotel, located in the city center. Good value for money, clean, comfortable rooms and secured. You can go out in the evening thanks to a private security service that takes care of the neighborhood, which is important in this city that has lost the tranquility of the past years.

The room was nice, by Madagascar standards. The staff was friendly. The views from the patios were wonderful. We took a tip from our driver ... don't go out at night in this neighborhood. So, for our safety's sake, we didn't.

Concerning safety in the future it would be better you be aware at the hotel rather than the'' guide'' (?!) Who, for his own interest, would prefer that you stay in your room'' quiet'' to avoid the ‘’extra work ...'' I do not mean that the city has no security problems, caution should be exercised, but in respect of our hotel, in two years of operation NONE of our costumers has had problems in our neighborhood the day or night. In addition, as a preventive measure, with our colleagues in the area, we set up a private security service which is round all night.
Concernant la sécurité, dans le futur il serait préférable que vous vous renseigniez chez l’hôtelier plutôt que chez ‘’ le guide’’ ( ?!) qui, pour son intérêt personnel, préfère que vous restiez ’’tranquille dans votre chambre’’ pour éviter d’avoir du ‘’ boulot supplémentaire… ‘’Je ne veux pas dire que cette ville n’a pas de problèmes de sécurité, la prudence est de rigueur mais, en ce qui concerne notre hôtel, en deux années d’activité AUCUN de nos clients n’ a eu de problèmes dans notre quartier, ni le jour ni la nuit. En plus, à titre préventif, avec nos confrères du quartier, nous avons installé un service de sécurité privé qui fait des rondes toute la nuit.

Nice are the rooms, bed, bathroom and the helpful staff.
Very nice the terrace overlooking Tana
Wifi ok on the terrace but not possible to receive in the rooms
Most rooms facing the hallway = lack of privacy. Only 2 or 3 rooms have an outside window.
TV shows only 2 local programs.
Breakfast mediocre. No fresh baguette and expensive. Restaurant so so.

This hotel is fantastic, so pleasant! all rooms have view over the terraces where you can enjoy sundowners! Don't hesitate to taste their Zebu carpaccio and some italian dishes, the tiramisu's sublime! the must is their rhum arrangé or the smooth Sorbetto drinks.
For ones that want some nightlife, pubs are just around the corner we can walk around at any hour of the night some private guards ensure the area.
Recommand the hotel that want to see real Tana's life

Room Tip: The number 1 next to the Belvedere Spa has a small and quiet private garden,
