This was an 'OK' Hilton. It's not one of the new modern ones but it was 'OK'.
The room we had was a great layout with a separate lounge/dining area so lots of space to lay out luggage when trying to repack (as we do quite often when working away form home for weeks on end!)
The bathroom was the worst thing - there was no 'hot' water. The shower was just over warm - Bearable but not great. It was clean but tired.
Also during both nights we noticed the smell of cigarette smoke coming through the vent in the bathroom which, being non smokers, was disgusting.
The AC was not great. I like a cool/cold room at night and ended up leaving the windows open to try and create a draft.
We are living in and out of hotels at the moment due to work and didn't get around to complaining about any of these problems - (I usually do!) so in fairness I shouldn't really complain as I didn't complain to the staff!
Which brings me to 'the staff' - the women on reception were not great. We asked them to book us the shuttle and they did - then they cancelled it while we waited outside. There was no explanation as to why they did this - just a 'sorry, we will call him back'.
We had breakfast in the room both mornings so can't comment on the help yourself breakfast. Room service breakfast was ok and the staff were very polite and cheerful.
The shuttle driver was totally cool and very helpful. Taking the time to explain the best tickets to buy to get into the city.
Would I stay again? Probably, as I think it is probably the best in the area.
But I'd much prefer a modern style hotel with modern bathroom.
