“Breakfast was unsurpassed!”
Reviewed March 29, 2008

We stayed at Al Nabila for 3 nights as part of a tour package with 'On The Go'. This is a great hotel to stay at if you are spending most of your time out of it. That's not to say it is bad... it just offers the basics to sleep, wash and eat breakfast and that's about it. The room was spacious. There were plenty of points to charge electronics. Bathroom was fine. Beds adequate. The breakfast range and quality was excellent with both Egyptian and western food on offer. The staff were prompt although I wouldn't say necessarily friendly but we didn't need their help at anytime. I wouldn't recommend the in-house money exchange. The scowling cashier took my GBP40 punched on a calculator, then tossed some dirty local notes back over to me without so much as a word.

Lastly like so many high-rise hotels in Cairo the Al Nabila is located on a busy 6-8 lane road (it is hard to tell as the roads lack any lane lines!). We were on the 6th floor for 2 nights and the 8th floor for the 3rd. Traffic noise was equally audible from both. I live on a main road to was not bothered but if yr not used to it bring earplugs!

Stayed 2 nights at the end of our 2 week Egypt trip. Enjoyed the location as it was in an area where we could visit the grocery store (Metro Market) for inexpensive snacks and water, use cheap Internet (3 LE per half hour at the shop above the Metro Market), and eat at non-touristy restaurants.

Our room was in the back of the building and very quiet. The room was nicely furnished and clean. The bathroom was large and we had plenty of hot water. The bed pillows were hard & thin.

Nice breakfast included eggs to order, pastries, and fresh fruit.

We stayed at the Al Nabila Hotel for 3 nights in total. One night at the beginning of the Pack2egypt Tour, then 2 nights at the end.

It is rated 4 star and we had upgraded our tour to 4 star and hoped that the Hotels chosen by the tour company would be ok.
This was an ok business type of hotel. The guests were mainly middle eastern but we did see many Westerners at Breakfast...but not any other time. I would rate it as a 3 star , but it was very clean and the rooms a good size and huge clean bathroom. The warm wooden furniture in the bedrooms were trying to be renaissance look with red and gold carpets and similar wallpaper.

It was in a good area with food outlets all around, money exchange and internet and a small shop in the lobby. Bakery out the front. a restaurant, but we found no one eating in it.

There is a METRO grocery store down the road and and exchange place nearby with better rates than the Hotel.

The staff were all very curtious and friendly. Wake up calls coming through on time etc.

It was ok as we were out touring all day. But if I had to stay in Cairo for a long period , I would chose a 5 star resortish type hotel.
