Apparently, Funduq an-Nil is Wadi Halfa's best offering, although you do have to wonder given the state of the place. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against metal bedframes in dusty shared rooms, or communal open-plan washing facilities...but when you are charged S£700 (just under US$3) each for the privilege, you do start wondering where the swimming pool and cinema are, and why there are no sheets or blankets on the beds.
All of Wadi Halfa's hotels are much the same...all will be full within minutes of a boat or train arriving, so don't dilly-dally, get in a taxi and head straight for town. Most of the places charge S£700 per person per night, which is a lot compared with Egypt and other Sudanese towns, but if you hunt the backstreets, you can find even more basic places for less.
