We arrived at this hotel the day that the city was on fire due to a tribal fight. Upon check, it was suggested that we stay at the hotel for lunch and enjoy the pool instead of heading out into the city. I am glad we took their advice. Although there was no one in the restaurant, the food was... More

Very bad hotel, sure not a 4 stars hotel,maximum 2 stars and it is not value money. The hotel is not clean and disappointing. Although the staff are friendly but I advice you to avoid this hotel. The toilets are sucks and towels are smelly and very old

This hotel is lovely and I can't say enough about the view! It overlooks the Nile and the hills. The rooms were clean with modern, Western decor. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was wonderful. I definitely recommend this hotel!

The location of this hotel is at the top of a hill and so the views at night are very beautiful. Also the rooms are big and nice, although a little dated. The staff here is very caring and co-operative. They also have hourly shuttles to the town in case someone needs to buy something. Overall a good hotel to... More

Good breakfast.. good service, clean rooms. Very quite, but then again Aswan is a quite and peaceful town. Hotel a little old but so far, well kept. Small pool, I give it a 4 on a scale of 10. It sits on high plateau, so if you decide to walk be prepared for some effort on the way back. Don't... More

We got the pool side view which has a large deck. During my stay, the weather sa between 27-30 Degrees Celsius and the temperature is perfect. After a long day of tours, this is the place where you really can rest. The room was good, with free fruits which they replenish every time the room service cleans the room..More English... More

This hotel had great staff who were very attentive and the food was really good too. Huge pool that was a blessing after a long day out in the heat. Had a great room with a deck, and an amazing view. The hotel room was average, but comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Basma Hotel in Aswan in November 2013 while visiting Abu Simbel and start of our Nile cruise. Located near the Hotel just up the street is the Nubian Museum, the Old Cataract Hotel ( I think this is were Agatha Christie stayed ) and walking distance to the Unfinished Obelisk. The room was airy, bright, and... More

Our very spacious room on the 5th floor was most satisfactory. Located in the wing closest to the Old Cataract Hotel, we had good views into the latter's gardens and especially also over the small islands in the Nile. You just have to overlook the ugliness of the New Cataract Hotel. Walking into town you immediately come to the very... More
