Lonely Planet review
Next door to the more obvious Ramlina Hotel is the almost grandiose but neglected Al-Zahra. Spacious, adequately clean rooms and a shady veranda provide a lingering colonial air. Hot water is available on request.
Our independent authors have visited Al-Zahra Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Abbottabad.
