“Excellent service and a great respite amidst busy Cairo”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

We are so glad that we stayed at this hotel for 4 nights (three when we arrived in Egypt) and one more before we flew out. The staff provides excellent service in arranging pick ups from the airport, drivers for visiting the pyramids and other sites, and guides as desired. Everyone they arranged was superb and reasonably priced. This took many hassles out of the traffic and intensity of big city Cairo.

Being out of the downtown in Zamalek is both a relief from the intensity of central Cairo but also means that travel to Museum and other locations requires walking, taxi, or public transport. We opted for this location to feel more at ease.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the executive suite with a view to the inner courtyard.

We just returned from a 16 day journey through Egypt, staying at Hotel Longchamps on both ends of our trip. This hotel was simply lovely - an easy intro to the bustle of Cairo and a relaxing place to finish the trip. The staff was most attentive and helpful, anticipating one's needs without being intrusive. Heba is a considerate and thoughtful hostess, and Gaby was invaluable to our large family group, even before we arrived. The rooms are quiet and well-appointed - we had a lovely shared terrace with an adjoining room for our children - fantastic to have a private space to sit outside in the evening with friends from Cairo. The location is wonderful - easy walk to the museum, and the leafy green neighborhood itself invites a leisurely stroll. Easy to get to restaurants such as Sequoia and Abou Sid, and close to the Fair Trade shop. The breakfasts were abundant and delicious, and the staff was very accommodating of our large group that drifted in at various times and tended to linger!

I can't say enough about the service at the hotel - even when minor glitches occurred - inevitable with a large group - the hotel staff were unfailingly polite and responsive. For instance, Gaby had arranged for a driver to take us to Saqqara, Memphis and Dahshur one morning, and he never showed. Gaby re-booked another driver who arrived promptly, and she arranged, as a courtesy, a half-day trip to Giza later in our trip in light of our delay. Simply delightful place!

We spent three nights at the beginning of our three-week trip and also our last night in Cairo at the Hotel Longchamps. Very knowledgeable and kind staff (especially Gaby), a pleasant room, and a wonderful breakfast. Zamalek is a good and quiet location. Definitely a recommended hotel!

I can't say enough good things about Hotel Longchamps. The room was clean, quiet, comfortable. The staff was so very friendly, Gabi went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure I got my luggage from the airport since it missed my connecting flight. They were helpful and kind and made us feel so welcome and right at home. The area around the hotel is very nice, lots of shops and restaurants, fun to explore at night. The breakfast was delicious and the dining room was a very nice setting from which to start the day. Highly recommended! I loved it.
