We enjoyed our two night stay at the Basma which permitted a day trip to Abu Simbel. The location just outside the Aswan downtown area is across the street from the Nubian Museum and walking distance to the Unfinished Obelisk. The hotel provides complimentary mini-bus service to downtown.
Our room was clean and well maintained with a small fridge and a large deck with lounge chairs offering a great view north to the Nile, the western shoreline and downtown. There was also a small balcony on the east side of the room. Other rooms would have our view at an angle across the large pool or less compelling views to the south and east.
Breakfasts were included: a good selection of fruit, breads, cheeses, cereals, etc. and made to order omlettes. We also enjoyed a light lunch ordered from the bar near the front desk and served by the pool, and a good dinner. The menus indicate "tax and service included" and there was no push from restaurant staff for tips.
All in all a good hotel choice in Aswan.
