“Excellent place to stay in Khartoum”
Reviewed October 15, 2009

I have stayed here many times when in Khartoum for work during 2009. All up i have probably stayed here for at least 2 months so I know the place well.

The rooms are clean and comfortable. Have split unit AC (so quiet. many other hotsl have those noisy box ACs in the room), cable TV (but not many English channels), bar fridge, small dek etc. When I wanted a bigger desk to work on they brought it to my room.

Kamal the manager is VERY helpful. Any problems he immediatly deals with and as a regular customer he has upgraded me a number of times to a junior suite which I really appreciated. Someone said the water pressure is a problem on the top floors but I have stayed on level 5 and found the pressure fine. The other staff are also helpful and friendly.

The lebanese restuarant (Cedars) sell nice food but if you want a change there is a great little open aircafe cafe (Tutu Cafe) next door which sells great pizzas and fruit drinks at a reasonable price.

The hotel it is surrounded by small shops where you can buy daily basics and change US$. Very convenient. It is also very close to the domestic and internaional terminal which I found handy as I travel a lot for work while in Sudan.

They took us from the airport with a small fee at the midnight.
The crew was polite. The hotel is quite clean according to the hotels that i stay in Khartoum before. The business facilities are ok. (internet connection especially) The cafe is nice. But the price is a little bit expensive.

  • Liked — The crew was polite
  • Disliked — The price level.

The hotel is indeed new, clean and cozy. The Lebanese restaurant in its first floor is delicious and very convenient (room service available). Just make sure when checking in of what you are getting because you might end up paying for things that might have seemed free or included in the price of the room in the beginning (wireless internet, taxes and breakfast for instance). Also verify the check out time! Make sure you are not in one of the top floors because the water might be a problem (weak). If you are willing to pay between 120 USD and 160 USD/per night (excluding taxes), then Lisamin Safari Hotel is a good pick. Despite a few issues due to the fact that the hotel is new (no possibility for international calls unless the front desk person lets you recharge his phone and use it, difficulties in transferring external calls), it is a pretty comfortable place. AC + TV + satellite + fridge + laundry you will get.

  • Liked — Clean and cozy. Good restaurant in the first floor.
  • Disliked — Lack of clarity of front desk guy regarding what's included or not in the price. Just make it clear in the beginning!
