“Smelly rooms - cheap hotel”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

I moved out from the standard room 80 $ to the super club/executive ... room for 165$ thinking that things would be better. Basically same everything, only in a bigger room, so even more bad smell. Very poor and old breakfast, lizard in the room...
Moved out quickly!

I think it'd be the best choice for a short business trip to Khartoum. Very nice place and much fine hospitality with reasonable cost. The thing which I see not much satisfying is the view because the hotel is located away from the Nile, my room was looking to a buildings and random roads.

I stayed here on a work trip to run a workshop that took place in a conference room of the hotel. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. My room was a standard modern hotel room: comfortable and quite spacious. I was on one of the higher floors and had a view over the city. The a/c was very cold and the vent was aimed straight at the bed. The staff turned the grid around so the blast aimed at the ceiling, which was very helpful. I'd recommend the place to business travellers.

This was a lovely experience to stay at room 705 which turned to be without windows at all, as for the AC at the room, it is a bit noisy. But it was worth the experience.
Breakfast was ok, 7/10.
The hotel is clean, neat and will furnished
The staff is very welcoming and cooperative.

The Kanon hotel is a good value and a fine night sleep. The beds were a bit past their prime, but adequate. The bathroom was a constant problem, I never had hot water during my stay - be it in the morning or afternoon. A couple of times it approached tepid. The shower leaked all over the floor which then flooded out of the bathroom. The wifi worked well. The doors do not seal well so one can hear neighbors and hallway conversations.
Again, the service is good. From the pick up, to check in and check out, the staff was attentive and helpful. Thought they couldn't fix everything (see bathroom) they did try. Also they were very helpful with arranging a driver, securing exit visa in a timely manner, currency exchange, etc. Price was right, too. This is my "plan B hotel for Khartoum.

Room Tip: higher is better for street noise, but elevator can take a while.

Charged US$ 110 per night when you can get a room in five star like Corinthia for US$ 100 per night. Small rooms, small wardrobe, washrooms small with poor light, house keeping forget to put one item today and another item the next day in washrooms, towels not properly washed.
Breakfast nice but quality of dishes of your choice is poor with high charges. Pick and drop facility for airport. Staff friendly but hides the facts, they tell on phone that it is five star hotel, but actually not.

With same facilities with better quality got room on one fourth of the charges.

Room Tip: Check rates in the town
