The guesthouse is located not very far from the airport,aniway you have to take a minibus/taxi for to get it and the center.but i have to say that Riyadh distric is very interesting. The breakfast is included and served in the roof top terrace. They provide also for a LOI for to get the visa.

Bougainvilla Guesthouse is located in Riyadh distric, in the south-eastern part of Khartoum. While the area is very quiet, it's a bit far off from the center, something to be taken into account. Their answers to my email were prompt and through them I got proof of booking which was needed to have my visa issued, but other than that... More

The Bougainvilla is a friendly place located in an area far away from the city center. The staff is vert friendly and helpful. For a small fee they pick you up from the airport, even by night. They can arrange the full foreigner-registration for little extra. The location is in Al-Ryadh, a 25 min. bus ride from the city center.... More

I am a cycle tourer and found this guesthouse after rejecting multiple expensive hotels. I was also stuck with lots of problems with regards to money, Sudanese registration and visa for my next country. I can not put into words how AMAZING the manager and his staff were in helping me out and making me feel at home. The room... More

This is a hotel in a fairly large suburban villa. Very friendly, helpful staff, and excellent wi-fi. Adequate breakfast and rather monotonous dinner are served on the roof, which is very pleasant as long as you avoid the racket of the call to prayer from the several nearby mosques. I stayed for two weeks but had to sample three rooms... More

The Bougainvilla Guesthouse is a hit or miss, but mostly a miss. The rooms are so tiny it's hard to turn around in them without hitting something. The staff keeps the place clean and the staff aims to please, but the location is close to nothing.

I have been at Bougain Villa 2 nights and I have had fantastic experience, I only went for 3 day tourism, they arranged everything and supported my visa. I had a problem about the registration in Sudan, compulsory for everyone going to the country and they helped me a lot even when it was not their duty. Their attitude is... More

The hotel is an island of relatively good (and free) wifi everywhere, cleanlinesses and friendly English speaking staff. The rooms needs some improvements, but overall are clean and well maintained. The bathroom is bellow average and there is not enough water pressure. it is near the Khartoum airport, but I didn't hear any serious noise in the room. I wouldn't... More

Stayed several times in the GH, when on mission, mainly for its nice and friendly staff. It is also a good value for money: basically half the price you'd pay in other similar types of hotels. Topfloor terrace restaurant is managed by a lovely lady and is a good place to relax, with good food. Sure, a bit of refurbishing... More

I stayed a few nights in Bourgainvilla Guesthouse, and can recommand it absolutely. The price was fine, during the Summer it was reduced to 55 dollar a night. In the evenings a good diner is served on the roof. The staff, Shas and others, were very helpful in arranging taxi's etcetera. It's quite close to the airport, the centre of... More
