Located at the heart of Hell-Ville, this city hotel is the perfect place for a break between excursions. If you are thinking of spending a little longer here, the facilities are limited, and apart from tasting the spiced rum made by the owner, there is not much going on! Except you must try a dish made with zebu, for which it is famed throughout the town!

    Location 5.0 /10

    Located in Hell Ville, the capital of Nosy Be, the Amborana is about 6 mi from Ambatoulouk.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The 10 rooms are in bungalows located on a former coffee plantation now planted up with numerous plant varieties and fruit trees. The buildings use a combination of natural and modern materials, with palm leaf roofs and charming medium-sized rooms. Six of them are built as two-storeys and are designed for family groups (up to 6 persons). Fans and mosquito nets are provided as standard, and each bungalow is decorated in a distinct style, in each case a tasteful mix of simplicity and authenticity. All the rooms have a terrace fitted out with sofas, where families can relax after spending the day on an excursion. The bathrooms all have a shower with a stone wall surround.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    It opened 17 years ago, and the dominant theme on view in the hotel is the zebu: the chairs, decor, food, everything here reminds you of the animal! The reception area is in a big, friendly straw hut which also houses the bar, lounge and restaurant, and guests reach their rooms via staircases that lead out to bungalows scattered around an area of luxuriant vegetation that used to be a coffee plantation. The TV corner, with big pillows strewn on the floor and some DVD's, is a pleasant spot to watch the news or pass the time.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The restaurant has an outside view and is spacious, with the kind of decor you will now be expecting. The speciality here is the zebu (hence the decor!). The restaurant is known throughout town for preparing this meat in a considerable variety of ways, with poultry and seafood also on the menu. The lunch and dinner menus are changed daily, so you will not get bored of eating the same dishes. Finally, for breakfast, simplicity is the name of the game, with a spread of the specialities typically found in a continental breakfast.

    To know

    The guests are a mixture of businessmen and tourists, and the hotel is perfect if you are arriving from Diego Suarez due to its proximity to the harbour.
    There is a safe at the reception and a very small one in the rooms.
    Breakfast is £3.50.

      This pretty little hotel, with its chic-ethnic atmosphere located by the waterside, houses 6 rooms and serves delicious cuisine. You will enjoy the feeling of privacy, the decoration, which is modern but not too over the top, the chic but relaxed atmosphere and the lush garden (although you could give the animals a miss). A small piece of paradise for couples!
