Corinthia Hotel, are we in Dubai or Africa?
The Corinthia Hotel is a landmark along the Nile in the in the heart of Khartoum’s commercial district. It is an elegant architectural building of steel and glass. The Corinthia Hotel or the Burj Al-Fateh Hotel is smaller and very different from the Burj Al Arab Hotel, the symbol of modern Dubai, but at first glimpse you experience some similarities.
I did not stay in this hotel. It's far above my budget. We stayed in the neigbouring hotel also at the Nile, the Grand Holiday Villa Hotel. I visited the Corinthia Hotel two times. Because we could not change enough money in our hotel, we came to the Corinthia Hotel. The staff at the reception was very friendly and willing to help us. Later we came back for a drink at the bar at the topfloor to enjoy the view at Khartoum.
Unique Quality: The Corinthia Hotel is a five-star accommodation. The landscaped gardens with stairs, bridges, mini-lakes and fountains look great. There is a giftshop with local jewelry, a spa, a traditional coffee tent and several restaurants with different prices, for example at the 18th floor the Rickshaw Restaurant with great views.
Directions: In de commercial district at the Nile
For this much you want more...
My wife and I lived in the Burj Al-Fateh Hotel for 5 months. The staff (and there's plenty of them) are polite and well intentioned if not the most efficient - eg. daily room cleaning would take well over an hour.
Unfortunately our stay was spoiled by the fact that my wife's mobile phone was stolen out of our room by one of the hotel staff. A similar thing happened to a friend of ours days before staying in the same hotel. This is a pity but our frustration was more over how the hotel dealt with it. We knew beyond doubt the phone had been stolen yet management at the hotel insisted it could not have been. If you're paying $750 a night and have lived there for 5 months do you think a £50 nokia is really such a big deal? The hotel could and should have done much more in investigating and reporting back to us - this is not what you expect from a 5 star hotel. Hopefully things have improved.
