Fabulous 8,6 From 201 reviews

Good 6,0
Not family friendly.
We had to wait for for over 30min because our rooms were not available. We booked in as a family and the rooms were so far apart being a total risk for the kids. But the hotel itself is good. Just not children friendly.

Great hotel, service needs work
The hotel was lovely and room 1217 was very comfortable. There were however service and training issues:- 1. We arrived late with a tired 8 year old and reception had no record of my checking in via The process was frustrating and I had to tell the clerk to please hurry as we had a tired child 2. At the elevator. We waited, with the sleeping child. The first elevator we let others take. We were then the only people waiting. The elevator took a while. When the elevator arrived another group arrived as well and our bellhop then helped them in and blocked us from entering. I objected and said "Are you serious? We were waiting already." He seemed intimidated by the other people but eventually told them to get out of the elevator as we were there first. 3. I ordered 3 beers from room service. When room service brought these to me they were sealed and there was no bottle opener in the room. The room service person was not prepared, had no bottle opener. She agreed to get an opener. Which she brought to me 15 minutes later. Then took away and said I would have to call to open the other bottles. This after 11pm. More is exoected from a 5 star hotel than a great piece of architecture and decor. Staff should be better trained and should want to help rather than react as if customers are an imposition I must hiwever commend the chef making the omelletes (01 Dec breakfast) for his personality and eagerness to help. Please convey my thank you to him.

Hilton Durban
It’s a 5 start and deservedly so! The only downside was that our room was on the second floor and the was an event at the Durban ICC, so sound blasting through the speakers was a bit too much if you just wanted to relax. But overall it’s a great comfortable hotel.

Content stay.... Everything was on spot. If only the website should state that PARKING IS CHARGED & not await for surprises.

Business hotel by ICC
Booked my whole team into the hotel for a project we executed at ICC over a week. Thoughts consistent across 7 people. Lifts are slow and horrific, really bad software or something, but slow and anywhere near peak times adds 15min to your exit time. Breakfast good, but often run out (they bring more, but more waiting). And our last night had a street music something outside that could be heard across all our rooms until early hours. Simply not good enough for a business hotel. However, great bed, great wifi, great shower and fantastic staff. These are good things done well. Hotel revamped since I last stayed there, so felt fresh still and after a week was good.
Simon, za7 night business trip

Warm, friendly hospitality at its best
The staff are very friendly and helpful - from check-in, to concierge to cleaning staff. The room is nice and big, but the bathroom is very small with the toilet half a meter away and right in front of the shower. Bed and pillows very comfortable Well located right next to the ICC
