My husband and I were backpacking through East Africa and had 2 layovers in Antananarivo between flying to and from Kenya and Nosy Be. We asked locals for a decent nearby hotel and were pointed in the direction of Cheval Blanc. We arrived on our first night at 1am and their gates were closed. They have 2 guard dogs who... More

This place is good if you have a late flight into or out of Tana. Don't expect any frills, a shower in the morning, or clean covers. The water pressure is too low in the morning, the evening is a much better chance for a shower. On the other hand. The place is cheap and it earns every bit of... More

We had two rooms, as the first one did not have water in the shower. The rooms were basic, enough for what we need - just a few hours stop before our return flight, late night. Positive points: free airport shuttle (it is really very close); the restaurant has nice food, regular prices. The staff is ok.

This property is located about 1km from Ivato international making it really convenient after a long International flight or for an overnight between domestic flights. Don't expect anything luxurious - it's a basic motel like arrangement. Our bathroom had mould around the shower and damp in the room That being said - you get what you pay for - at... More

I cant complain. Its convenient close to the airport, got a free shuttle, is clean and comfortable enough. Its not a place to spend your holidays, but for a night before or after a flight, its good. I would choose it again.

This hotel is closed to the Airport and it offers a Shuttle service for free, that's all we can say in a positive manner about Auberge du Cheval Blanc. Everything else is just filthy, very cheap and dirty, unfriendly staff and almost no light. Very depressing place, there are plenty of other hotels in that area. Avoid this one!

The strongest point of this hotel is the location (3 mins from the airport) and the free wifi. Its a very simple hotel, which doesnt feel super clean or is not super comfortable, however, if you just need a room to sleep in before or after a long flight, it will do. I'd recommend taking your own bedsheet/sleeping bag/pillow case,... More

Pluses: free transport to airport, only 5 minutes; clean rooms; decent restaurant on site Minuses: room and restaurant lighting dim, no fan or heat in room (we were cold in July) The place has an air of one night tenants--most on their way to flights the next day. It serves that purpose. I would not have felt comfortable as a... More

This hotel is an ideal base for those travellers who arrive on a late flight and then have an early Air Mad flight the next day. The rooms are very basic, but clean. The staff will collect you from the Airport and transfer you to the hotel and back again. When we stayed, our arrival flight was delayed and after... More
