Chez Billy

Top choice guesthouse in Antsirabe

This eclectic melange of guesthouse, bar and restaurant, awash in loud art, inspires a hostel-like conviviality among the staff, backpackers, guides and in-the-know vazaha (foreigners) who form its crossroads clientele. The rooms are simple but well kept, the showers hot and powerful and the jovial owner Billy, a former guide, is a mine of information. It's always full so book ahead.
