I booked this hotel based on the standard of hiltons I have stayed in before. Unfortunately the rooms do not live up to this standard or previous reputation I thought Hilton had. The room was large with a nice view, but the rooms are so tired and Dooley. As far as I can see most of the rooms in the hotel have not been updated since the hotel was built. The room had an old fusty smell due to the age of the furnishings and the air con constantly in use. The shower was weak, and the tap in the bathroom spurted water in all directions. The room was cleaned well, but it really needs updating. I complained at reception and was offered a "contempory" room, at a "very good rate of 50 euros per night".
It's not fair or good practice to have a two tier room system at a 5 star hotel. There are 5 and 3 star rooms in this 5 star hotel, but this is not made clear when booking. I would be hesitant to go to a Hilton hotel again.
The plus side is that the facilities are very good. The breakfast in the morning was good, but avoid the 8-10 rush hour slot as people are quite rude and impatient queuing when it is busy, I didn't eat in any of the restraunts as the quality of the restraunts in the marina was excellent. Zens japanese restraunt had amazing fish. Book in advance. Zavis Mediterranean opposite zens was also amazing and very good value I thought. Again book a table as many people were being turned away on the door sadly.
I would try another hotel to make sure the room is top quality which is what the Hilton would make you think you were getting. In my opinion the room is more important than the facilities.
