Fodor's Review

Occupying an airy promontory above Aswan, the Basma is itself a high point, and its lobby, accented with lively turquoise fabrics, begins a gallery walk to interiors and grounds graced with sculptures, murals, fountains, and mosaics—many created by local artists. The pool and deck face the Nile, as do other common exterior spaces. Rooms have seen better days, but they're clean. Sliding doors open onto private balconies, which may overlook the pool and gardens, offer a glimpse of the Nile, or take in the Nubia Museum, the Fatamid Cemetery, and the city.
