Built in the site of an old granary, the classic red-brick building housing Maison Gallieni dates to 1879 and was once the first bank in all of Madagascar. Today the hotel shares the building with the Monaco Consulate, and its enviable position on a hill above the hustle and bustle of Antananarivo makes it the first choice of discerning travellers to the island.

Boasting just four spacious en suite bedrooms, Maison Gallieni also has a sweeping spiral staircase and swimming pool banked by a lush vertical garden. No two rooms are the same but all have high ceilings and are dotted with a pleasing combination of occasional antiques and mid-century pieces.

Maison Gallieni is a perfect beginning and send-off for your Madagascar holiday: its excellent service is a welcome after a long-haul flight and its serene comfort a joy after time in the Madagascan countryside.
