"The IC Hotel is a simple but clean and comfy small hotel. The staff are friendly and for a one night stay near the airport it's a good choice. Its proximity to the airport can also come in very handy if Air Madagascar decide to change flight times at the last minute!"
Mr S Saville
"Very good location, only 5 mins from the airport. But down a street that looks like a slum - which isn't very inviting (though nothing to worry about in the end). Owned by IC Tours, and an excellent place for an initial night - and day rooms at the end, although rather basic. Reasonable food. Free WiFi, but cash only (Ariary or Euros)."
Mrs J Bridger
"It was actually called Gassy country hotel rather than IC so this was confusing!
Welcoming drink but hotel staff not very friendly but that might have seemed like that to me because we were tired and disoriented after travel. Met Theo from IC so were given full details of tour.
The hot water wouldn't work when we tried to use it - the member of staff got it working when we complained by going into other rooms and turning on taps but when we came to have our shower it had gone again.
Live music - in fact our own personal concert as first in restaurant!"
Miss. Susan Rogers
"Lovely rooms but freezing cold, no heating and I got food poisoning both times I ate here!"
Miss. Janice Fiske
"We appreciate this was a convenient hotel for the airport but expect more from a hotel run by the travel company.
English only seemed to be spoken/understood by one member of staff - great if she was on duty
Information was not forthcoming and always had to be requested "
