I stayed here for two days during my Aswan visit. It’s a big hotel and there are very nice terraced gardens, cupolas and banquets and conference facilities. There is a swimming pool and an open air restaurant also. I saw many locals enjoying their Sheesha and shakes/cold drinks in the open air restaurant, which has slightly cheaper prices than the...

Basma Hotel is an average well preserved hotel in a high hill on Aswan city centre, in front of the Nubian Museum. The views from the rooms to the Nile River, with the desert at the back are breathtaking. Rooms are quite clean, for the small price per night of a standard room. Totally recommendable!

The hotel is very peaceful, the staff is very friendly and if you have any question, just ask the guest relations desk. The room was excellent, very big with a safety box. I had an excellent view of the Nile. If you don't feel like going out, there's a cosy restaurant serving a menu set at luch and dinner. It's...

Comfortable well appointed Rooms. Centrally located. Excellent food is served in the attached Resturant. Ambience is very good. Beautifully landscaped. Front Desk and the staff are very courteous & friendly. Hope Management would extend WiFi to Rooms as well instead of keeping it limited to the Lobby. Nice experience.

To be honest, I was not impressed. We spent three nights in Basma, that was our first time in Aswan. The hotel itself is wonderful. The location and the view are amazing. As we weren't there in the busy period of the year, the dinner was in á la carte system and it wasn't very various but very very good....
