Hotel is slightly dated but this seems to be the norm for all hotels in Abuja. Very expansive grounds, a lot of facilities. Nice swimming pools and food options. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Hotel seems very secure from safety point of view. Probably will be going back and will stay here again.

I stayed twice and the rooms and bath were fine, though a bit dated. Overall, everything was clean and functional. The decor (color schemes, design) reminded me of buildings constructed in the late 1970's early 80's, though I understand they are updating the building, I just didn't see that section - the hotel is enormous! The gym was large, but...

The Transcorp Hilton is the pre-eminent hotel in Abuja. It is where all the movers and shakers in Nigerian society stay. It is the epicentre of political lobbying. The hotel buzzes with restless energy and provides a fascinating insight into Nigeria's elite. That notwithstanding, it is horrendously expensive with one of the lowest value to cost quotient of any hotel...

The hotel is in a bit of disrepair, but still one of the nicer places to stay in Abuja. They are re-doing the top floors currently. The pool area is very nice.

The hotel was a little island of functioning services that after a number of hotel stays in other Nigerian states, was very nice to come back to. Well run, clean, with a large variety of amenities---and a huge pool---it was wonderful to be able to stay there.

My stay did not start well, waiting from 2pm to 5pm before i finally got my room. There were plenty of people with the same issue that day. Some staff remained friendly, some others did not cope with the stress well. Rooms are outdated and need refurbishment, certainly for that price and being Hilton. Breakfast and bars are ok.

I paid $400 per night for this hotel. The rooms are not great. I didn't sleep well because of the elevator bells. The amenities are average. The food is fine, better than average for Nigeria. But really I can't believe the price.
