au3 night family trip
Very good 8.0
This was a very nice hotel rated 5 star close to restaurant, shopping, massages and the jetty. The breakfast had much variety and it was good to have fresh juice (choose your own fruits and veges) every morning The staff were attentive and made an effort to remember what you liked each morning and catered accordingly. Rooftop bar and pool was very nice with a view to the water I also enjoyed the coffee shop which offered coffee and cake for 20 later in the day

short break

Exceptional 10.0
Top pick for biz traveller to KK
My top pick for business traveller for KK by a big margin. Apart from being one of the newest hotels, it has all the connectors and facilities that a business traveller needs. Check in was quick and efficient. Rooms are spacious and the internet is generous. The rooftop pool is quite adequate although you should go early if plan to just do laps. At night it like a cool poolside bar. Some of the other hotels I have stayed at in Kk are quite tired and poorly maintained. The other more touristy hotels tend to be overbooked and understaffed making things very slow. So Hilton is an excellent and refreshing new choice.

Good 6.0
Service is unsatisfactory. We asked for our rooms to be cleaned in the morning and was told they will do so at 1.30pm. it wasn't cleaned till 4.45pm and I called for service again before it's done and only 1 room was being cleaned The staff at the people did not stop guests who did not change to proper swimwear into the pool and there are guests going into the pool in their normal attire.

Great hotel, great stay.
Very comfortable and strategic hotel location. The staffs are friendly n helpful. Always ready to help. The only small issue is the engineering team should check the ventilation issue as a little bit of cooking smell in my room when return to room.
