My wife and I stayed 9 nights at Longchamps during Mar/Apr 09 during our 30 days in Egypt. For me food is important, so Longchamps satisfied that requirement with a nice buffet breakfast each morning. Heba, the owner and her able assistant Andrea were perfect hosts, providing very clean, comfortable rooms and advice. They run an efficient, honest no nonsense hotel, more making it seem more European than Egyptian. I couldn't help but sense that there was a heavy female influence in the decor, which gives Longchamps a soft comfortable feel. Even though it's located on the 6th floor of building on a tree lined street in Zamalek, an upscale neighborhood on an island of the same name in the middle of the Nile, there are at least two plant crowded patio balconies along with plants and flowers scattered throughout. Location wise, Zamalek is aways from the action downtown, but there's an upside to that, no touts as you walk out onto the street. Travel tip: walk out to the street, go left and a block before the Flamenco Hotel on the right is a Metro Supermarket (downstairs in the basement). It's good for hot food take out. You can put together a decent lunch or dinner for less than 20 LE.
