    Bougainvilla Guesthouse

    This oasis of low-key luxury and tranquillity in the upscale Riyadh neighbourhood is the perfect soft landing into Khartoum. Featuring plush bedding, gleaming bathrooms and tiled floors, the 26 rooms exemplify functional simplicity. Added bonuses include free laundry, an excellent restaurant, a small indoor pool and a gym. Staff can also help organise visas. A fab choice.

    Corinthia

    A class act all around, this pear-shaped hotel is about as far away from the hubbub as you can get without leaving Khartoum. It has an indoor pool, a gym, squash courts and 230 spacious rooms daubed in chocolate and yellow. Naturally, rooms are outfitted with all requisite mod-cons and come with awesome views. A great selection of restaurants makes for content tummies.

    Assaha Village

    City explorers with a romantic streak will be utterly enchanted by this luxe blend of old-world class and Arabic aesthetics.

    Acropole Hotel

    This family-run hotel in Khartoum, the first choice of archaeologists, reeks of history and atmosphere. The Greek owners are very friendly and helpful. The 35 rooms are without frills but exceedingly clean and tidy; rooms 18 and 26 to 29 have a big terrace. Can help organise visas and all kinds of tours.

    Regency Hotel

    Bathrooms here are spotless and beds have crisp, clean linen, but rooms are unlikely to inspire prose on your Facebook page and the overwhelming feel is slightly old-fashioned (think a four-star motel circa 1990). Its main selling points are its ace location, professional service and wide array of facilities, including a restaurant and a well-tended swimming pool at the back.

    Khartoum Plaza Hotel

    Deservedly popular with tour operators, the Plaza has a central location, large rooms with pleasant bathrooms, efficient wi-fi, a decent restaurant and a couple of sinkworthy sofas in the vast lobby. It won’t win any style awards but it makes for a cost-effective base from which to explore Khartoum. Excellent breakfast buffet.

    Kabri Hotel

    The Kabri's main draw is its reasonable rates, something lost to many Khartoum hoteliers. Of course you get what you pay for, but here at least that means secure, well looked-after doubles with salubrious albeit pint-sized bathrooms and a prime location.

    Horizon

    A fine choice in the area. Rooms are well appointed with a modernish feel, while the hotel as a whole offers good quality. Bathrooms are on the small size, though. Prices include airport transfers and there's an on-site restaurant.

  • Lodging in Khartoum

    Dubai Hotel

    The slightly peeling walls and the ageing plumbing will give you a rude awakening, but otherwise the Dubai delivers the goods perfectly adequately, with cheery staff, functional bathrooms and a central location.

    Sharga Hotel

    Clean, centrally located and a good deal for budget travellers, the Sharga manages to be cheap without being, you know, cheap.

  • Lodging in Khartoum

    Blue Nile Sailing Club

    Right by the Nile, this is a great place for overlanders, with patches of grass, enough shade and a clean ablution block.

    Khartoum Youth Hostel

    Good news for overlanders in their own vehicles – this place allows camping in the gardens, and has safe parking and passable toilet blocks for your use. Steer clear of the threadbare six- to 10-bed dorms inside the deceptively appealing building. Wi-fi is unreliable.
