First of all I would like to express my gratitude to Mr Hamdy Abdel Aziz who made my stay really memorable. It was quite late in the night and he made arrangements for beautiful suite overlooking the ecstatic view from the terrace. The room service dinner was quick and very helpful staff . We could not have breakfast as we... More

This is the second time we stay at Basma Hotel. The place in general isn't bad but this time more attention was needed for the maintenance and cleanliness and I'm not sure if this was because tourism wasn't good enough at that time so they didn't care much, or the hotel is going backward! If you intend to travel all... More

The first Marigold...oops I mean "The Basma Hotel" Aswan, Egypt. Well where do I start, oh yeah the view of the Nile is sensational from our upgraded room on the fifth floor and it is across the road from the Nubian museum, but that's about it. This hotel starts with a rubble and rubbish strewn driveway and heads downhill from... More

I stayed at Basma for one night for business. The hotel has a lovely view. It is up a hill, but it is easy to take taxis. It is run down and not a 4-star hotel. The bed sheets and towels were clean, but the furniture needs revamping. The showers didn't work well, cold water and very weak, but there... More

The hotel is located on the higher grounds of Aswan, the guests will have a great view of the Nile and the Aswan town from the hotel grounds. They have a swimming pool and a good restaurant. Rooms are good but the service staff at the restaurant were not very quick to respond to requests of the guests.

This hotel is excellent hotel for travelers on budget. Excellent food and service with reasonable prices. Its on a hill, 5 minutes walking from Cathedral and Sofitel Old Cataract. Guaranteed choice if you are not looking for the luxury.

The hotel is good, although I would have preferred one nearer the city center. Unfortunately, I needed to book from one day to the other. IThere is a shuttle service that runs in the evening and I think also in the morning, but not with a good frequency. The rooms are spacious and clean. I did not have the opportunity... More
