Our family came in Feb 2020, we found both a great hotel and a charming "home" , so peaceful in busy Cairo. As a frequent business traveler, this would also be my grail: excellent comfort (rooms, breakfast..) with quality of service & charm combined. A great alternative to premium hotel chains! Run so efficiently by Hebba. In Feb 2020, her staff already wore the very first covid masks, before anyone else! German professionalism at its very best, with sincere respect of customers alongside Egyptian people & culture. Best of both world, really. A Premium choice for those seeking real value & quality.

This private well run hotel is located in the north third of Zamalek/Gezira Island in an area that is lightly commercial / mostly residential. My room was from the "Superior" category (the middle category). It was beautifully appointed and very comfortable, and it had a big bathroom with big tub and all the hot water I ever wanted. It was on the 6th floor which is one flight of stairs up from the Reception desk on the 5th floor of the building. I particularly liked the hotel's terrace on the 5th floor with its comfortable chairs and potted plants. Large bottles of drinking water are supplied in two locations so that guests can refill their water bottles. Breakfast is a delight in a large room with tables with white tablecloths. There is a full selection of food, hot and cold - scrambled eggs, sausages, multiple different kinds of bread and rolls, yogurt, fresh fruit, etc. It's really an enjoyable and great breakfast. The name of the hotel is on the outside of the building. Go in the building and walk most of the way down the wide long hall. There are two elevators near the end on the right. Close the inside doors. The elevators are small but will hold one or maybe two people and a large suitcase. Go to the 5th floor. A new subway station is being built practically at the doorstep of the hotel! Who knows how long it will take to finish it and start service on that new line of the subway, but it will be great when it does start. Because of the construction you can't walk/drive straight west from the hotel. You have to drive around it. Most of the taxi drivers seemed to be used to it by now. The construction doesn't impact staying in the hotel. I didn't find many restaurants in the area of the hotel, Five Bells is close. Pizza Hut and McDonalds are at the west end of the hotel's street, a 15 minute walk around the construction and along the street. Getting information from the Reception was challenging because of our languages. In going to La Tratoria Real restaurant, the Reception told me to go up the street and turn right at the traffic light... and there was a church. It turned out to be a round-about and a mosque, but I got there. (I can't recommend that restaurant because it took half an hour to order and longer to get my pasta even though there was only one other table occupied, and it was expensive, and the waiters didn't understand why they were there.) The hotel does not have a computer and printer for guests to use to print their airline itineraries and boarding passes. (So be prepared!) I was stunned to find this out. This was totally unexpected. And you have to have these things when you get to the airport! So I asked Reception where I could get them printed. He said there was a library, to leave the hotel and go right... a ways, three/buildings/a ways, in back/around back above Kodak, students use it. I went out looking for it and didn't find it. Later Reception remembered it wasn't Kodak, it was Agfa... I was desperate and panicking. But I found a solution, and here is what it is... To print your airline itineraries/boarding passes go out the front door of the hotel, turn right. At the third street turn right. (There is a newspaper store at that corner.) About 2/3 of the way down that long block, on the right, there is a Travel Agency with big floor to ceiling windows. I went in there and the man was incredibly nice about finding my flight information on his computer and graciously printing everything I needed. He wasn't going to charge me anything but I was so grateful that he had bailed me out of my predicament that I gave him 100 EGP. Laundry at the hotel is very quick and expensive. My three days of laundry came back in about four hours and cost almost as much as my room for the night. And there was something incredibly unusual... The shirts and slacks were pressed and folded in pristine manner and sealed in cellophane envelopes. I thought about packing them that way but unwrapped them instead. They were wet! Not just moist or damp!! They were wet!!! Travel is such an adventure! The hotel is not within walking distance of any tourist destinations. But there are lots of taxis available. It cost me 12 EGP (US $0.75) plus tip to go to the Egyptian Museum. WiFi runs the range of being anywhere from very usable to non existent.

As an expat for most of my life, finding a gem like hotel Longchamps is both nostalgic and fun. It’s the sort of place you go to if you want a local “press club” feel. Embassy personnel stay here etc. Arrival at the lobby area on the ground floor may give you reservations, but once you go up to the 5 th floor all is good. Loved our room, the amazing breakfast, the friendly staff and the super Hebba Bakri. Rather than a big box hotel, you get a bit of the old Cairo, and it made a difference. We walked all over the area, felt totally safe, and totally enjoyed our stay. There are also cookies and free clean water ..... it’s hard to find good independent hotels, this one is a gem

A wonderful oasis, this boutique hotel in chaotic Cairo. Run by Hebba who has worked in the global travel industry her whole life. She knows how to create a personal hotel with high standard. Great breakfast, nice staff, lovely balconies to relax. Our room was spacious with balcony, very modern bathroom, a kettle- and fresh flowers in the lobby. Since Cairo is loud and busy this hotel in nice Zamalek is a relief!!!

Hotel Longchamps is a gem of a hotel in a country where quality boutique hotels are almost non-existent and was easily the best place we stayed at during a recent two-week trip to Egypt. Whenever I travel, I make it a point of avoiding the international chains — I found the locally run hotels in Egypt to be hit or miss in regards to quality and service but our stay at Hotel Longchamps was most excellent. Hebba was a fantastic host who made sure that our stay was perfect (it was) and even though we met her only once, greeted us like old friends. Our room had a balcony with a great view and the most comfortable bed. There was a little bit of noise in the evening but It didn’t bother us at all; Zamalek is quite a lively area so I think that is to be expected. I loved the communal water supply which was a brilliant touch and breakfast was superb. The only downside, if there are any, is that Zamalek does not have a Metro station so you will need to take a taxi to go anywhere else. Despite that, this will be our first choice whenever we return to Cairo.
