I was in Egypt during some of the recent political commotion.... Staying at some of the big hotels near the American embassy was, sometimes, a bit risky. The hotels were very nice but walking around outside was not a good idea.... I wound up at the Hotel Longchamps. Nice refuge in the Zamalek neighborhood... This is not a deluxe hotel but it's pleasant and secure and it met my modest needs. I tell people, "It's a small, old-style European hotel." I can raise only one complaint: The hot water system leaves a bit to be desired. In the morning, it's necessary to run the shower for 7-10 minutes, in order to get enough hot water.... I've met several guests who've made the same complaint. And I stayed in different rooms on different occasions.... No, the problem doesn't seem to be "typical for Egypt." Other hotels in Egypt - even the guesthouse at Saint Katherines in the Sinai - didn't have the same problem.... Oh, well. I learned to adjust. Nice hotel, not great.
