Can't fault the actual hotel or it's facilities whatsover. We had a brilliant stay. Nothing was too much trouble. Has two pools in spa and beach complex; a family pool and an adult pool. Just a shame there's no appropriate signage or effort to restrict children to the family pool to the detriment of those seeking some tranquility and relaxation. Otherwise highly recommended

Read several reviews about the hotel and was a bit concerned about it being one of the older hotels in Abu Dhabi, while it is older and the rooms are smaller then some of its newer competition, this hotel is a must if staying in Abu Dhabi for business. As a Diamond Member I was upgraded immediatley from a twin to a Club Executuve King and sent up to the Club to check-in. The service was fantastic from the housekeeping, lounge staff and the club desk staff. The other plus is its location which is right on the Corniche and free access to the Hilton Beach Club which has a great beach two pools and two bars. The bar and wait staff at the beach were excellent, from setting up lounges and umberllas to moving them to keep you in the shade throughout the day to ensuring you always have a drink when you want one.

The only downside which is typical of most hotels in Abu Dhabi is the smoke in the lobby and bars.

While it is further from the business district, the 5 min. longer cab ride is worth the extras. Great job!

Room Tip: Try to get upgraded to the club floors best is 10th floor. Make sure if you are a non-smoker to req...

This may be the oldest hotel in Abu Dhabi BUT it was simply 1st class.. It was the staff..! Amazing, nothing was too much trouble. Little touches made our stay such a pleasure. A trolely in the evening to your room to see if you need any extra towels ect. Breakfast is fantastic, too much choice. Its worth upgrading to executive room and all the extras go with that. The beach club is great! Pools, beach, food, IF you can stand the sun!
Well done to all the staff at Hilton, you are doing an amazing job..
Thank you.

Room Tip: room 804, good view..!

We had narrowed our choice of hotel for our Abu Dhabi stay down to about 4 but finally we were recommended the Hilton Abu Dhabi by a friend and we are glad we took her advice . From arrival and check-in with Maria at Reception till 10 days later when Maria again was there to check us out was a wonderful experience . The hotel does look small and a little old fashioned compared to some of the newer ones which are springing up throughout the city but it has a real personal feel and all the hotel staff were excellent and helpful without exception.
The Hiltonia Beach Club is superb and a daily visit was essential, again the staff at the Escape pool bars were friendly and efficient especially Zaman although all the staff at the Beach Club are attentive , helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The restaurants were all first class and we tried the Bocca (thanks to Marco Riunno and Monice ), the Royal Orchid , Vasco`s and The Jazz Bar (thanks to Bonny) , the latter has a great house band who are well worth seeing although it`s only the early part of their set which is anywhere near jazz, however they turn into a great modern dance band from midway through the night.
Make sure you book the Desert Safari through the Concierge as it`s not to be missed , special thanks to Zahoor our guide and his team at Sunshine Tours for an unforgettable day.
All in all the only change I would make the next time we visit would be to upgrade to the Executive package which on reflection was the only thing which would have enhanced this stay.

Again a huge thanks to all Managers and staff who made us feel very welcome.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for the upgrade to the Exec Floors and insist on a sea view. Lower floors can be...

Superb hotel with excellent staff, service and restaurants. The charges made by the hotel for certain services did however appear to be higher than expected. Taking a small limousine from the airport to the hotel late at night cost 70 Dirhams while the hotel charged 140 Dirhams to arrange the same journey back to the airport in a car of similar quality. Similarly, restaurant charges/soft drink costs seemed to be higher within the hotel complex than were being charged outside the hotel.

While this hotel is clearly showing its age, believe its the second oldest 5Star hotel in Abu Dhabi behind the Le Merdian the staff were fantastic. I had arrived early in the morning, yet the staff seemed puzzled and said the computers were down. After having breakfast up in the executive floor I eventually was given a room that was ready. Unfortunately when checking before flying the night before that had given me an upgrade to an exec room with a view, yet all what was available even with my reservation notes was one with a view to the carpark. Room was very aged, yet clean. The door did have this annoying ability to make a loud thump about 20seconds after closing it. Exec lounge was great, breakfast the clear highlight over the evening canapés. The pool/beach/gym area was well worth the short walk in the sun, very clean and organised.

It certainly doesn't have any of the "bling" that other newer hotels do, yet the staff were great and the amenities were serviceable. Much better location then the newer Capital Hilton for tourists.
