I can't say enough about Radisson apartments in the city center of Antananarivo. They really took care of me and I felt so comfortable for my entire 2 week stay. I asked for their help and they connected me to a taxi driver, Aldo, who took me all the way to Andasibe for an overnight stay one weekend. Aldo was so nice and we had a great time seeing the lemurs. I felt safe and comfortable the whole time and it was great to get out of the capital, if just for a night. The next weekend, one guy who works at the front desk took me around one day à pied for souvenir shopping and we found everything I was looking for. He told me some history of Antananarivo and Madagascar and it was a great day. The central location of this hotel was great for my work and also for the couple of times I ventured out on my own to mail postcards at the post office and buy some things at Shoprite. I ate dinner every night in the hotel and I didn't mind because the food was so good! My favorite was the pavé de merou with vegetables, but really you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. I ate in the restaurant often because it was cold at night, but the rooftop is also great, not to be missed for a fancy rum drink, and great Afrobeats on Fridays when they have a DJ!! To a person, from the front desk to the restaurant to the rooftop to the room service, very friendly staff partout! Anything I needed, they had it, or quickly found a solution. Was so happy to stay and so sad to leave! Thank you to the entire team for making my time in Madagascar a dream!! Can't wait to return encore un fois!
