Beautiful, clean, elegant, open spaced, and bright hotel.
We reserved our room online, but online did not offer extra amenities such as breakfast or the New Years Party.
Check-in service was fast and nice. The whole staff seems to be able to speak and understand English. But they tried to charge us 40TL each (we had a party of 3) for breakfast! -This price is way too high! I've eaten breakfast all around Adana and usually pay 100TL for a party between 7-9! So we declined. The receptionist then offered an upgrade to the room for only 40TL more which would included breakfast for all 3 of us. We accepted that.
Breakfast was between 7 and 1100 with a large selection of traditional Turkish food, and was worth 40TL per room, not each! But it was extremely crowded to where we had to sit outside in the cold where the tables are not made. It took a long time for a waiter to realize we were there, so we ate half our meal with our hands and did not get our drinks until the end.
The fact you cannot view or see fixed prices of the rooms and their packages with the breakfast included can leave a person questioning if they are changing prices depending on the guests.
The room was great. We had the privilege to stay in a dual twin bedroom on the river side. It was very nice, spacious, and clean. The bathroom was one of its best parts being very spacious itself with a deep and long bathtub then most hotels, but also its separate standing shower made out of nice tile and showerhead. There are also two sinks. The room's window is amazing that it takes up the whole wall and has a large window sill you can sit on. The view of the city, Central Mosque and the Roman bridge are amazing!
We visited the Hotels bar. The drinks are expensive at 18-25TL! But during happy hour they are half off which is what we all got. The bartender takes extra time and care to make a drink, he does it like an art form, and can take 5-8mins to prepare, but it's entertaining to watch. But I made the mistake of putting my empty glass back on the bar counter and went back to our table. The bartender then made another drink, for all of us without our knowledge and also charged us. Happy hour was also over by this time, so our bill was over 100TL for 5 drinks!
When we got to the Hilton we knew there was a New Years Party and thought it was possibly for the guests. But it was not. There was a separate entrance fee of 200TL each and the party was full. But after we asked about it, the parties' planners were able to make room for us and even seated us at a table upfront! We were the only non-Turkish people there, and had a blast! The food, drinks, band, DJ, dancing, magic show, were all excellent and I recommend the event to anyone. Some people even had kids there!
During our stay we used valet parking, mostly because we could not find where any regular parking was. From what we know we were not billed any extra cost to use valet, but we left the attendant a nice tip.
The Hilton and it’s amenities are expensive and if it was not for the exchange rate we would not have been able to afford this experience.
It's my understanding the hotel does not have a shuttle, but the hotel is located close enough to the roman bridge (south), which walking across takes you straight into Old Adana, the old clock tower, and the Turkish markets in that area. Walking North of the hotel is Optimum mall, 4 story shopping mall with food court, Starbucks, tons of stores, movie theater, arcade, even an ice rink. And west of that within walking distance is Central Mosque and Park, and Adana's Architectural Museum.
