Hotel Carlton is a centrally located five star hotel in Antananarivo overlooking Lake Anosy and much of the city, suitable for business travellers and holiday visitors alike. While the tall, grey skyscraper is not the most charming structure, the interiors are luxurious and the pool area is a large green oasis in the middle of the bustling capital.
The hotel offers 165 rooms and six suites. All rooms have a bathroom, international TV, Wifi and a safe. Additionally, the suites include a kitchenette, dressing room and a separate living room.
Restaurants include Café Charly, La Terrace, Le Bistrot, L'éclair - a pastry counter offering deserts, chocolate cakes and other sweet delights. The informal outdoors restaurant and pool bar Oasis de Tana serves excellent cocktails and pizza from an open fire brick oven.
A shopping arcade with over 20 boutiques is located on the ground level, which includes a hairdresser, luxury leather store, a PALA jewelry boutique, duty free store and a business centre with fast internet, printing and copying service.
Various facilities within the hotel grounds include a semi-olympic sized swimming pool, tennis and fitness centre, Finnish sauna, Jacuzzi, hammam and massage service. Even if you are not staying at the hotel, daily or monthly membership of the recreational facilities are available at reasonable prices. If you are not staying at Carlton monthly membership for pool access is Ariary 102,000. Download full rates at media:Tarifs_Club_Loisirs_2013-2014_sans_fitness.pdf.

A secure parking area is located next to the building. A direct shuttle bus service is provided to and from the airport, which takes about 30 minutes or longer depending on traffic.
