Budget Hotel
This hotel looked a lot better in the photos . The rooms were old fashioned, lifts were slow. Staff were nice and accommodating. You obviously have to pay close to $300 Aus in Waikiki to get a nice room.

nice little boutique hotel in Hawaii
Do not expect any luxury, hotel/room a bit old, but well maintained. Room size is decent, comfy and clean bed, cool split system AC, nice coffee machine. Friendly staff. Close to Ala Moana centre. 30 minutes walk to Waikiki beach if you don't mind a bit of exercise. Other thing to note is lift lobby is at level 1, you need to carry your luggage thru stair from street level. I you got big luggage might be troublesome.

Close to Ala Moana Shopping Centre and Beach.
The staff were fantastic. Very helpful and very accommodating with an early check in. The room was way too small for a family of four and the pool only got a couple of hours sun each day (due to being between tall buildings) so the water was very cold. Our room was at the front of the hotel and got a lot of traffic noise. The windows had shutters which cut down the noise but made the room very dark. I wouldn't recommend this hotel for a family.

Great service but hotel needs some improvement
Cute boutique hotel. Still needs some improvement to get 5 stars though. The hotel is on a main road and quite nosiy as a result. Not the best night sleep for any light sleepers. The bathroom is quite small and lacks any space to hang towels. We had to hang ours off the bed. Likewise with our swimwear which is strange for a hotel so close to the beach. The elevator is also REALLY slow! We would have to wait almost 10 minutes sometimes. Not exaggerating. Our tv also didn't work and pool gets no sun so is freezing cold. But the staff are amazing and made the trip. They serve free mai tais some afternoons, we had a complimentary bottle of wine in the room and were given little souvenirs.
