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

Great views, Good cappuccinos and much better than our Cairo hotel. Located near the Nobian museum (right across the road) and 15min walk to the water front. Restaurant lunch was good. Large portions. Pool deck and pool well laid out and was happy with it.

This was our second hotel on a fantastic trip to Jordan and Egypt. Aswan like other places in Egypt has been hit hard by the troubles and it is evident by the empty hotels. We virtually had the hotel to ourselves. On our arrival we were told of a wedding party going on as we had been given rooms overlooking... More
