Tsara Guest House
Lonely Planet review
Wildly popular, this orange-painted converted church enjoys a reputation as one of the best guesthouses in Madagascar. The public area décor is excellent - a roaring fire and bright-red walls in the reception area, a glass-walled restaurant serving delicious food, and a charming outdoor terrace with great views. Prices vary considerably here.
The cheapest rooms, with shared bathrooms, seem a bit overpriced, as do the midrange 'chambres comfortable', but you are paying for the ambiance more than the amenities.The most expensive rooms are quite posh, however, and fairly priced - one has a king bed. English is spoken, and excursions can be arranged. Advance bookings are recommended.
