last week and on the first day of Eid, my husband and I decided to take a little break without leaving Khartoum so we booked one night in Rotana a King Classic Room on the fourth floor with a pool view. The experience was great, checking in was fast and easy and Mouhannad Rabie at the reservation desk was very helpful and friendly. After we were showed around, we settled at our room and ordered some Room Service, the food was great at 3:00 am, it was warm and fresh I believe it was chicken wraps and chicken and shrimp kababs (yeah we did not have much to eat the previous day or night so we had an apetite for all this). The room was spacious and the bathroom was amazing..Price was, I think it is worth every Sudanese Pound, it was around SDG 555 plus taxes and what not it comes to SDG 728.56/night this price includes a special offer for massage and souna.
In the morning, we had our nice breakfast at Rotana Club which is located on the same floor (4th), it has couple of computers with internet service, few flat screens and again the service was fast, we got our hot tea and coffee immediately and some fresh OJ.
As for the location of the hotel, it is in a nice area it seems far from down town Khartoum but who needs that, you are close to the nice area of Khartoum (Riyadh-Tayef- Amarat) and the main roads, and of course very very very close to the airport (which is in the middle of Khartoum any ways); transportation is easy and you can even get a tuk tuk from Afraa Mall which is right next door. the area is lively, there is Al Saha Al Khadra close by where you can get some exercise in the evenings!
We will return for a second treat sometime soon ;) we just loved it. We are already fans of Rotana's Restaurants and now that we have stayed there, we love Rotana Hotel all in all.
