Maison Galliéni

Nestled on picturesque Faravohitra Hill and overlooking Antananarivo (“Tana”), Maison Galliéni is a leafy retreat in the heart of the city. An enviable location, this boutique hotel is steps away from the vibrant red-roofed market stalls of Analakely and Independence Avenue, and near to the iconic Faravohitra Cathedral, and the Royal Palissandre Hotel. The property dates back to 1879, when the original building was built—which then served as Madagascar’s first bank before a total refurb and reinvention as a hotel. Brick, hardwood floors, stone, arched doorways, and curved staircases ooze charm.

Maison Galliéni boasts four well-appointed, air-conditioned suites and common areas offer inviting lounge spaces. There is also a handsome library, an outdoor lounge with comfortable seating, a heated swimming pool, and lush garden surrounds. A cozy fireplace, spacious dining room, and airy veranda are ideal spots to admire a view or sip a cocktail.

We like to overnight travelers at Maison Galliéni when arriving and departing Madagascar or as a stopover when transiting between the island’s north and south.
