neutral  Refugio: Agree with your translation, but certainly not with your etymology! Hi is not a contraction of high, but an interjection of greeting in its own right, already existing as hy in medieval English.

Qué tal?


Explanation:
Esta es sólo una alternativa. Todo depende del contexto y también de lo extratextual: interlocutores, situación, tema, lugar, etc. "Hola" es absolutamente general.

¡Hola! Qué tal ?


Explanation:
There is no more context.

It´s my suggestion if you search a kind of a translated word for this, what you have written in the context.
