La Maison Gallieni


A Niarra Favourite

Sat high upon a hill in the historic heart of the Malagasy capital, La Maison Gallieni offers a spectacular 360 views across the city of Antananarivo. This 19th century building is a charming and comfortable place to explore the surrounding city from.

With only four bedrooms - Monaco, Tana, Fara, and Gallieni, the hotel is personal and unique. You will be in awe of the luxurious bedrooms and the iconic spiral staircase that leads up to the lounge and dining room, all of which have superb views over the city. This boutique hotel has a homely feel with tasteful décor so is a perfect escape from the bustling city outside.

And what a relaxing escape it is, a dip in the swimming pool or a sundowner at the end of the day in the garden really makes La Maison Gallieni is the ideal spot to wind down.
