    My hotel stay overall was great because this hotel was in a great location where you could walk to ail the shops and restaurants within minutes.My only complaint would be being from Australia and having paid for my stay in advance was not aware of the extra 20 Usd I needed to pay for room service every night and using the pool when I didn’t even look at the pool. Another thing I need to advice people of is if you have hired a rental car this hotel has no parking and you are charged 28usd per day for parking your car in a public parking which is a good 7 minutes walk a few blocks down. So I ended up paying just under $450 dollars extra for my five night stay.

    Fantastic value and central location
    Amazing value for the location and accommodation. Staff were very accommodating. We had to travel inter-island and they held our baggage at no cost. It’s newly renovated and had a small kitchen which was handy if you wanted to make your own breakfast. Bed was very comfortable and we had no noise issues. Only minor point was a slight smell in the room which was easily fixed when you turn on the air conditioner. I think it’s a local plumbing issue as we noticed the smell when walking in other parts of Waikiki.I would definitely stay here again.

    Very good 8.0
    Low rise establishment which means a little noisier with the main road traffic outside.Handy to downtown Waikiki.
    Valdis, au2 night romance trip
    Very good 8.0
    Would stay again
    Rooms are nice and clean, comfy beds and good shower pressure and fairly quiet with the balcony doors closed at night considering i was on the main road side, but no issues with that. The beachwalk area is my favourite area to stay. The only thing really is a small table and seat set would be perfect for the balconys despite them being small, could still fit a table and chair. The lift is also quite slow considering the hotel is only 5 floors in total. Other than that front desk staff accommodated my request to change rooms and allowed me to keep the same room for my 2 separate bookings i had, was appreciated and would stay again as i visit Honolulu often as i can.

    Way exceeded my expectations! will stay again.
    This hotel far exceeded our expectations,this room was recently refurbished to a very modern standard and was perfect. We stayed on the pool side of the hotel and it was extremely quiet. There’s a great selection of bars and restaurants near by ( Hard Rock Cafe is 2doors away) walking to the beach takes 3 minutes and all the buses will glide almost to the front doors! Waikiki beach is around a 10 minute walk. I would definitely stay here again and I will highly recommend this hotel to anyone who asks me for a place to stay. Beach towels and beach chairs are free from the front desk to you to make your time just that little bit more enjoyable.

    Great location, except for the pesky make-up hawkers on the street outside. Nice comfortable hotel.

    Close to the action in Waikiki
    Staid 1 night prior to cruising the islands it’s a nice boutique syle hotel in the heart of Waikiki, close to the action of restaurant, bars, shopping and beach. A little noisy if your room is close to the main road. Overall a great stay.
    Martin, au1 night romance trip
    Very good 8.0
    Spacious, clean rooms and service with a smile
    The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The room was spacious and clean with a modern touch (hotel was still undergoing renovations while we were there). Bed was large and comfortable, sleep quality good. Air conditioning is not noisy like other places I've stayed at. I liked the coffee/tea machine, easy to use. I couldn't work out all the controls on the Japanese-style toilet though! Hot water takes quite a while to come out of the shower. Rooms facing Kalakaua Ave can be subject to street noise at night (loud cars, drunk people shouting) but didn't disrupt sleep too much. A few additional items would make the stay more comfortable in rooms with a kitchenette: some dishwashing detergent, a dish scrubber, a colander and another chair. Two people cannot sit down at the desk to eat when there is only one chair! Location very handy to bus stops on Saratoga Rd around the corner - to key destinations such as Pearl Harbour, Diamond Head, Ala Moana Center, Hanauma Bay. I would gladly stay again if visiting Oahu in future.
