Hilton Durban
Ranked #2 of 43 Hotels in Durban
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 2, 2011

Stayed here for 2 weeks on business. Rooms are spacious, Hilton standard, but slightly tired. Service is good and also up to Hilton standard, but a bit overattentive (at least two visits of room service per day, not good if you want to work in your room). Breakfast and dinner at the hotel restaurant are excellent. There are some variations everyday, so you don't get bored during longer stays. Fitness facilities are very well equipped and open 24/7. The pool is smallish and rather cold. Parking and Internet are too expensive. There were occasional connection problems.
The location is very central and convenient, but not safe. After dark the hotel should only be left via taxi. Security within the hotel is very good.

Overall: Good hotel for business and leisure. Good value for a Hilton. Location very central, but unsafe.

My stay there was over a week-end in January 2011, in an Executive room. Probably due to the fact that it was a summer week-end, the executive floor was quite empty, however the lounge was open and food/drinks served. The hotel in itself was comfortable, Hilton standards, not that dated in my opinion. Correctly located for business and conferences, 10 minutes by foot from the beach though. Internet was not working properly (extremely slow) and could not be fixed but no reimbursement done…

Only stayed one night. Yes, hotel is a bit dated but everything works and is clean. Certainly better price / performance compared to my usual hotel in Durban

I was only here for 1 evening.

The service was very good and as a Hilton Diamond member I was invited to check in on the exec level. All was very swift and I was in my room very quickly. The room was fine, a little tired but it looks like a reasonably old hotel.

I had room service and the food was excellent and it was delivered reasonably quickly.

The pool is pretty cold and there were no towels available or delivered despite my requests.

On a different note, Durban Airport is excellent. Security is very quick and efficient.

The hotel is 15 minutes from the beach and 10 minutes to town
breakfast is monotonous if you are there for more than 3 days, but the meals are generally great.
