    Great stay!

    The hospitality of the folks at Longchamps is bar none. The location is amazing, right in the heart of zamalek and walking distance from everywhere. Zamalek is a very safe neighborhood and tourists can walk around without getting hassled by touts. Longchamps has a great terrace that we wished we had used even more than we did. Some of the rooms need upgrading. We were initially checked into one such room but after requesting a move, they promptly moved us to another recently renovated room. The owner constantly kept in touch to check in on our comfort during the stay.

    A real insider's tip! Many more than 3 stars .... Enjoyable atmosphere, discrete, yet homely. The room is very nice and comfortable, maintained in excellent shape, with finesse and high cleanliness. The staff is very friendly, helpful and professional. The breakfast buffet is outstanding and takes into account many special health requests.The hotel is located very much in the lively center of Cairo - a lot to be discovered around. A PLACE TO GO !

    We enjoyed staying at Longchamp so much, we rebooked to stay another three nights the following week. The location is great in. Beautiful Art Deco Building in the heart of Zamalek. The breakfast is great and the staff very helpful. The Owner Hebrew went out her way to make us feel welcome.

    Simple and classic

    Loved the nostalgic vibe of this place! Warning: bring your warm clothes as it was sometimes colder in our room than on the streets. The breakfast was nice and everyone was friendly. Just wish they had more hairdryers in winter...

    Charming, well-run, comfortable older hotel.

    A charming, well-managed older hotel in a nice neighborhood, convenient to transportation to other parts of Cairo, near plenty of good restaurants at various price levels. Excellent and generous breakfast. Prompt and always-helpful service by pleasant staff. Comfortable rooms with modern bathrooms and nice views of the city. The one thing I would suggest they do differently is to use a vacuum cleaner to clean the floors and rugs, instead of just sweeping.

    A true hidden gem.

    One of our best hotel experiences in Egypt. It was a little hard to find, as it is on the fifth and sixth floor of an old building in Zamalek and the ground floor looks abandoned. Once upstairs though, via very small two person elevators, you enter a safe and welcoming atmosphere. The rooms were comfortable, the bathroom was modern, the hotel was very secure and we found the neighborhood to be fine for walking to restaurants. The owner was on site most of the time and couldn't do enough to make our stay a pleasant one. The breakfast was beyond expectations. This is not a luxury property, but a quaint, comfortable and unique experience. We would definitely stay here agin and highly recommend it.

    I liked this hotel, it was "charming." It's in an older building in a very residential neighborhood. The day I arrived there was a lot of traffic due to confusing multiple one way streets and all the kids were getting out of school. I would stay here again. Easy access to most things (stores and places to eat). Woke up to lots of birds chirping. The building is older, but the hotel is well-maintained. The AC was dripping water, a guy was there in less than 10 minutes and fixed it. Same with the water dripping from under the sink. It's not the Ritz, but I really liked the area and it was super-comfortable. The breakfast was okay (typical hotel buffet type food). Nothing to write home about, but I got enough calories and good coffee. ONE WARNING: the stairs between the 6th and 7th are dark AF. I almost missed the step twice since it is dark. The light above creates the perfect shadow to hide the steps on the turn. Also, the carpet on the 6th by the stairs isn't taped down, so if you hit it too fast (ie walking speed), it will slide. So basically, avoid the area around the stairs haha. There are nice terraces in this hotel. Again, I would definitely stay here again. I really like the neighborhood and it's clean and safe.

    Amazing breakfast. Well-managed, but the room they gave me was noisy overlooking a busy street. I had asked for a quiet room, so I am not sure what happened. Overall, I would recommend.
