Historical colonial building

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 25, 2014

In khartoum we stayed In the Grand Holiday Villa Hotel for two nights before we started our trip to the north. On the way back we had a 'day' room till 11 pm before departure of our plane.

The hotel was built in the late 1800s. The building still has a historical and colonial atmosphere. I learned that the hotel had in the past well-known visitors like Thomas Cook, Sir Winston Churchill and Queen Victoria.

The hotel has 160 guestrooms located in different wings of the building. We had a room at the groundfloor located at a green inner court. Accidentily we had both times to change rooms. When we arrived in Sudan late night the first room at the second floor was not cleaned. No elevator to go up and down with the luggage before we got a clean room at the innercourt. When we came back from the desert the offered room was allready occupied. The sleeping lady was astonished to see two people in her room after we turned on the light. Both times after changing rooms we encounter no problems.

Unique Quality: In the morning we had a delicious breakfast buffet. There are several restaurants, one is at the poolside. Here I had a pizza. There are 2 swimming pools (male and female), a tenniscourt and more sport- and spa- facilities. The hotel has free wifi.

Directions: The hotel is located at the Blue Nile River opposite Tuti Island in the heart of Khartoum's commercial area.

my stay was relaxing, the tennis court was great and my children love the pingpong, but the food... wasn't, well... good. the pizza was not tasty at all, the pool was great and big, and i love the kiddie pool, but the womans pool was too small & and dirty. the staff was shy but still nice. there wasn't a good nile view, but a good pool view from the lobby. over all i think there is a lot of better hotels like salem (rotana), hilton, and other nile hotels. but if you have a big family i highly recommend it for big families, for its cheap for a nile hotel... but its in a ghetto area so.....

Unique Quality: mens pool, sports, staff

Directions: freeway entrance, nile street

River front in Khartoum

I did not stay here (too $$$$$) but the location on this hotel is hard to beat right across the street from the river. Actually most of the more established high end hotels in Khartoum are on the river. If you are out here for diplomatic work or need to be near the Govt offices then this is the place. According to my cab drivers and friends the service is hard to beat here.

the old Grand Hotel under a new name

Very comfortable . The food was good but during Ramadan there were so many people from outside coming for 'fatour' that you had to be early to find a place to sit.
Bed and breakfast costs 160 US$, and full board US$200.Rather pricey.

Unique Quality: View of the Nile and Tuti Island

Directions: On Nile Avenue opposite Tuti Island

Khartoum's Grand Hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

After arriving in Khartoum for the first time, I was put up at what used to be called the Grand Hotel but has since been taken over by a Malaysian Hotel Chain (Holiday Villa). Upon arriving, you can easily believe when someone tells you that this hotel is over a hundred years old. As for my room, I had a big bed but somehow the mattress has sunk in the middle and I can feel the springs when I lie on it. The bathroom doesn't have anything fancy, just a tub, sink & toilet.

The hotel has a new addition where they now have wifi connection at SDG12 (US$6) for 24hr connection in the hotel lobby where guests can surf the net on their laptops.

Unique Quality: The view in the lobby is reminiscent of old colonial times with crystal chandeliers and furnishings before Churchill Hall. The exterior is somewhat similar, the outdoor cafe has wrought iron table and chairs where on weekends (that's Thursday & Friday nights), you can enjoy a simple (but expensive) dinner buffet or smoke a shisha.

There are 3 swimming pools but only one is used because the rest are not as clean. This is also a pricey, pricey hotel for the what you get. Nevertheless, when you're here you just have to go with the flow

It's a nice enough hotel, but for the price I prefer the Hilton. If you prefer colonial style old world hotels then this is probably for you, however the business centre consists of 1 computer at the front reception desk, which is often busy (and a pretty slow connection, which sometimes you have to fix yourself when it's down)

Unique Quality: Wonderful Malaysian Cuisine in the main restaurant
