Lonely Planet review
The bizarre maroon tower at the heart of this luxury hillside hotel belies the distinguished history of Tana's most prestigious address, originally founded as a handful of rooms above a café in 1928. A touch of colonial grandeur remains, particularly in the marble-clad lobby and the extravagant spa, but the rooms don't always live up to these benchmarks - opt for the new Carayon wing, impeccably styled despite being more modern.
Luckily the hotel facilities are uniformly excellent, encompassing three restaurants, two bars, patisserie, business centre, travel agency, hair salon, perfume shop and a small slot-machine casino. The reception staff speak impeccable English and are a mine of information on anything and everything in Tana.
Our independent authors have visited Hôtel Colbert and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Antananarivo.
