“Great Location on The Corniche”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

We stayed 2 nights at the hotel, We were there at the end of Ramadan (religious festival) so it was very busy. Excellent hotel located on The Corniche. Friendly helpful staff. Breakfast was included and great value, large choice. We had and early flight so staff arrange a breakfast delivered to our room at 5.30 (breakfast is usually 6am). Very hot when we were there (42deg) so we didn't do much but go to a shopping centre which was very close to the hotel.

Hotel has a private beach and pool located across the road accessible via a tunnel under the road

I normally go Dubai, and thought i'd give Abu Dhabi a go. The city itself is great, not at the same scale as Dubai, but enough to keep you entertained. I booked the Hilton as I was getting a good rate. The hotel from the outside looks average, and when u walk in, it presents itself in a slightly more five-star way. I was however dissapointed with the room, as the previous night I stayed in the Grand Millenium Al Aahda hotel in Abu Dhabi - which was significantly better, and much cheaper per night. I was here at the Hilton for 3 nights, and was happy with the location, particularly with the Marina Mall being a 15 min walk away. This hotel is four star plus for me, and I was gobsmacked when i saw the (lack of) range at breakfast. It was embarrasing. The buffet breakfast was limited to say the least, and I couldnt belive this 5-star hotel put out such a poor spread. On the plus side, the pool area is ok, and the health club is great. Staff were helpful, and on the whole I had a comfortable stay. I dont think i'd stay here again in a hurry as I believe there has to be better 5-star hotels in Abu Dhabi than this.

Room Tip: Must visit the grand mosque

The Hilton Hotel at Abu Dhabi is located on the waterfront. It has well-appointed rooms, good restaurants and a great Beach Club with fresh water pool and an enclosed sea pool, with bars and eateries adjacent.
In a town like Abu Dhabi with temperatures in the 40's (C) access to the waterfront is a real benefit.
This is a nicer operate and I'd recommend it for business travelers and families alike.

Room Tip: Ask for sea-front - the other side faces construction sites!

The Hilton Abu Dhabi has a great heart. Its top asset are its staff who really do bend over backwards to help. They have a proactive service approach which means they approach you with the desire to help, rather than merely being problem solvers.
The Hiltonia Beach Club is a paradise with a beautiful pool complex, water sports, beach, restaurants and a top quality gym and spa. We spent nearly all our time here. We opted for the executive lounge option which was great as we had constant access to food and drink.
The hotel has everything you need, including bars, restaurants and nightclubs.
My only reservation is that the building is quite old now. It is however kept clean and modern looking. A few issues in the room with electrics and a/c, but nothing that detracts from a solid score

Room Tip: Executive rooms give access to the lounge which is well worth the extra cost

We stayed 7 nights at the hotel as a family of 5. We asked for connecting rooms which we received . The rooms were pleasant enough the daily complimentary water with tea and coffee was nice.

The room cleaning was not of a consistent high standard and most days I felt the staff just concentrated on making the bed.

There is a walk from the hotel via a tunnel to the HIlton pool , gym/spa which is across the road but once you are there the facilities are very nice. I visited the gym a few times and it is one of the best equipped gyms I have used at a hotel, there is also a sauna / steam room and jacuzzi.

Breakfast at the hotel is good with the normal spread of hot and cold foods, it would have been nice to have more variety of fruits rather than just 2 varieties of melon and pineapple.

The location of this hotel is good and taxi's are always readily available from outside the hotel with the staff outside always ready to attend to you as you arrive and leave the taxi's.

We just wanted to relax by the swimming pool and the hotel facilities really ticked the box as a family we didn't make use of the restaurants in the evening as it would be too expensive and they didn't have family deals that could have tempted us.

staff could not be more helpful. Remember when you get to UAE that 85% of people will not be Emiratie. So your experience relies very much on kindness of outsourced staff. The Hilton pool, gym etc were the best I have seen in a hotel- but they weren't in the hotel, they were over the road, on the beach! Kids love the water slides. Easy to get food and drink there. Short taxi ride to Marina Mall which appears to be open from 10am to Midnight!

Room Tip: Rooms away from the road side will be quieter and the rooms up higher will have views of the Palace!
