... hitched a ride to the petrol station in town and came back in a while with the top up. the car still wouldn't go. We all gave it a push and it spluttered into life. We hobbled along, struggling up hills and coasting down them. Dina was convinced that the problem was caused by dirty petrol.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel du Louvre Antananarivo
We are thrilled to be back in civilization and connected once more to the internet! After all, there is a pitched battle for the US Presidency being waged far, far away, and we have a lot of catching up to do! The hotel is very functional, and we marvel at how inexpensive the drinks are at the bar, and the food at the restaurant. As mentioned in my blog post, the usual problems sorting out the bill for a group at the restaurant were endured, but nothing that would make me give this property a bad review. Really great place to stay in Tana!
