“best Hotel in Abuja-Nigeria”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

The Hilton in Abuja is the best hotel in Abuja and does provide value for money. Since this is the only good hotel around one must ensure that booking is done well in advance and reconfirmed before arrival as some time you may end up waiting for the room for quite some time

The Nicon Hilton Abuja was the main hospitality attraction in the city for so many years, pricey yes, but justifiable so. Fast forward to November 2013 and a change of ownership, the hotel is now a sad sad disappointment. The staff are rude, loud, poorly dressed and generally ill-mannered. There was no soap in the dispensing machines in the ladies room, the electronic hand dryers did not work and the state of cleanliness left a whole lot to be desired. We had a meeting and for tea we were served street food fare; I can't imagine this happening in any other Hilton in the world. The air-conditioning was broken down in the meeting room we used so the staff had to bring in standing fans; while at it, they quarreled with each other in our full view. In spite of all this, the price of the hotel is still through the roof. Shocking to say the least!

The hotel lives up to the brand however the day i lodged there, the hotel was booked to max. My advise is that you book well in advance before you stay in this Hotel and make payment to ensure your booking is confirmed

I had stayed in Transcorp before, but my last stay (Oct. 24 to 26, 2013) created an impressive impact. From the front Desk to when I was taken to my Room, the treament was first class. In orientation that customer is king reflected in the behaviour of all the staff. Complaint is responded to swiftly, services are rendered satisfactorily, courtesies are inviting. No doubt, guest, like me, would want to repeat visit always. Transcorp has indeed lifted business of hospitality in Nigeria.

Well, with about 670 rooms! This is one of the biggest facilities I have ever been to. At N75,000.00 and above, its worth it in my opinion. The rooms are extremely clean. Meals are splendid. The bar is nice, although I couldn't find Hunters Dry. But the lobby has far less seats than I would expect, in fact it almost has none. The swimming pool is good too. The beddings are extremely clean too. This hotel are very good. I hope to enjoy the rest of my days in this facility.
