“Classy, beautiful”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

We can't say enough good things about this hotel. The decor is gorgeous, rooms are very clean and comfy, and staff are helpful and polite. They are happy to help you plan your days in Cairo and book taxis. Location is perfect for exploring Zamalek, and you can even walk to the Egyptian Museum. The computer terminal in the common area was much appreciated. Airport pick-up and drop-off went very smoothly. I only regret that we couldn't stay there on the first leg of our trip since it was fully booked - make reservations early!

Great central location on Zamalek, with good access to most of Cairo.
Everything like airpot collection, etc, went as promised.
A little bit of calm away from the Cairo chaos down below.
Good location for restaurants, etc.
Internet was very slow but I guess that is Egypt for you!

Room Tip: Stayed in the 'luxury room' which is still pretty good value for money rather than taking a...

My husband and I went to Cairo last year at the peak of the revolution. I believe Mubarak hasn't relinquished his post at that time. There was still curfew going on, but everything was great or even better, since the sites were not crowded at all! We got a good deal for a lot of stuff, because we were only the tourists visiting during that time.

I guess one of the best deals that we found in Cairo is Hotel Longchamps. This hotel makes you feel at home. There are smiles everywhere, and people are always willing to go the extra mile for you. Heba, Gaby, and other staff were very helpful and accommodating to our requests. The breakfast buffet is awesome, and I always look forward to it every morning. Moreover, the hotel is situated in Zamalek, where the consulates are located, so it is very safe to walk around even at night. If you want a luxury type of hotel with a view of the Nile, this is not your place. But if you want something affordable that feels like home, this is your spot.

We have just spent a week at the Longchamps Hotel in Cairo and highly recommend it. The staff are exceptionally professional and friendly, especially Gaby, at reception, who was very helpful and efficient. The location is great (in a slightly tired but safe part of Zamalek), and there are lots of taxis near the hotel. It's an easy walk to the 15th May bridge, and there are lots of good restaurants in the neighbourhood. We had an executive room and a standard room, and they were both well-furnished and clean, with the executive room particularly spacious. The standard room had a lovely large covered balcony.

A couple of drawbacks: one of the rooms we had was a bit noisy, and it would have been really helpful if the hotel had had a travel cot in the bedroom/high chair in the breakfast room. But otherwise excellent value for money, and highly recommended.
