Hotel Longchamps was recommended to us by many friends who regularly travel to or live in Cairo. It is well known as a friendly establishment in a neighbourhood that is removed from the madness of central Cairo, but still conveniently only a 15-minute taxi ride from Tahrir Square. From our first encounter via email with the owner, Mrs Bakri, we knew we would receive the kind of personal attention that we would inevitably need on our first trip to Egypt. When we arrived we felt right at home, the hotel reminding us of European pension-style hotels of our youth. We loved our corner room with two sets of French doors and were very fond of our balcony where we sat out in the evening contemplating the extra-ordinary city around us. We also liked the fact that there were neighbourhood restaurants within easy walking distance. When I got the inevitable tummy bug the hotel staff were very helpful providing advice on remedies and producing light meals at odd hours. I couldn't recommend Hotel Longchamps more highly.
