Lokanga Boutique Hotel, open since October 2011, is a lovingly renovated original Malagasy townhouse with just six rooms. Each one has a different character based on a theme from Malagasy history, and is furnished with antiques mostly passed down through the family of the half-Malagasy proprietor. Situated in a peaceful spot just a stone’s throw from the queen’s palace, Lokanga enjoys stunning panoramic views across all of Antananarivo. Even if you do not stay here then you should come and enjoy a drink or meal on the terrace. The restaurant is open to the public for lunch and dinner except on Mondays. The suites and rooms each have a double bed (except one twin), en-suite bathroom with shower or bath, large communal balcony, minibar, safe and fast Wi-Fi connection. Note that, as all of the furnishings are antiques the beds differ in size so tall guests should request a room with a larger bed. And those who have difficulty with steps should avoid booking the two rooms on the top floor, which is accessed by a steep staircase. Ask at reception for information on the self-guided walking tours showcasing the city’s history.
