We spent three nights at the beginning of our three-week trip and also our last night in Cairo at the Hotel Longchamps. Very knowledgeable and kind staff (especially Gaby), a pleasant room, and a wonderful breakfast. Zamalek is a good and quiet location. Definitely a recommended hotel!

I can't say enough good things about Hotel Longchamps. The room was clean, quiet, comfortable. The staff was so very friendly, Gabi went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure I got my luggage from the airport since it missed my connecting flight. They were helpful and kind and made us feel so welcome and right at home. The area around the hotel is very nice, lots of shops and restaurants, fun to explore at night. The breakfast was delicious and the dining room was a very nice setting from which to start the day. Highly recommended! I loved it.

This is a lovely little hotel in a fantastic location in Zamalak, where many of the embassies are. The hotel is on the top two floors of an apartment block, there are two lifts to take you up to the hotel. The hotel is very nicely furnished with two terraces and seating areas to relax in after a hard days sightseeing. The rooms are very modern and clean , and although the rooms at the front can be a bit noisy, my room was swapped without any fuss to a quieter room. Gabby and the other reception staff were always very helpful , and wrote out in arabic the place we wanted to go so we could show the taxi driver. The Longchamps is a great base to discover Cairo from, and the staff really do go the extra mile to make sure you enjoy your stay .

This is a well-run, well-appointed hotel that is an oasis of peace and quiet in the tumult that is Cairo. The staff provide a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The spacious rooms are well separated and consequently there is no noise from adjoining rooms or from outside, although the rooms facing the street do suffer from traffic noise. The beds are comfortable and there is a plentiful supply of hot water.The hotel has a pleasant terrace which is perfect for relaxing after a hard day's sightseeing. The lounge areas too are very comfortable. Breakfast is included in the price and offers a good variety of fruit, cereals and cooked food.
I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel since I doubt that there is anywhere in Cairo offering better value for money.

We were so looking forward to staying in Hotel Longchamps, and found that the hotel surpassed our expectations. Let me begin with the hotel. Our good-sized room was light and airy, with a modern style of furnishing. The bathroom was much larger than average, and contained a walk-in shower as well as a bath, hand-basin and toilet. We found the dining room - with classical music - an ideal place to enjoy the high-quality breakfast. We also enjoyed sipping tea on the Winter Terrace. All the staff were professional, friendly and helpful.

We arrived quite tired after an enjoyable 10.5 hour train journey from Luxor, and were delighted to find that the hotel provided an excellent base in which to sleep very deeply.The island district of Zamalek is one of the greenest and quietest in Cairo. The streets are lined with tress, some of which lean at incredibly acute angles. The area contains a large number of embassies, but is also populated with students, which means there are plenty of cafes, restaurants and bookshops.

After venturing out each day to giza, or into the rest of the buzzing city, it was lovely to return to such a peaceful setting. We find Cairo fascinating, and look forward to returning. The larger hotels dotted on either side of the Nile look very impersonal to us, however opulent they may be, so we will definitely return to the Longchamps next time we come.

Room Tip: The back or side of the hotel is quieter, but there isn't a huge amount of traffic in Ishmael Mo...

Where should I start? The best thing about Cairo, was choosing this hotel. Excellent location, in a very nice residential area and walking distance to the Nile River. The room was nicely decorated and it was quiet. Their breakfast I thought was delicious, FREE, and had a lot of variety. Gaby at the front desk was SO HELPFUL. She gave us directions to every place, advice, even wrote things in Arabic so we could hand them to the taxi drivers. She let us borrow a travel book to take to the museum and recommended we didn't get a guide. We are so glad we listened to her... We were there for hours just using our Egypt book, which includes a guide to the Egyptian Museum. We did get a guide to the Pyramids, which was very good, our guide Heydi was very knowledgeable and took us to see some neat places around the area. Anyway, thank you Longchamps for treating us so well when we were there!
