Having read the reviews, we truly feel that Kuhio Banyan Club has been given a bum rap. Yes, it is beside a strip club. We heard nothing. Gentle hum of well-functioning air conditioner let us sleep peacefully through the night. Yes, it is worn. The carpets and cupboards need changing/upgrading. But it was clean and properly equipped. The large bathroom... More

If you show up expecting a Turtle Bay Resort-like experience, you will be disappointed. If you want a bed, roof over your head, and a place to take a shower, then you'll be fine. This is the Motel 6 of Waikiki. Yes, the room is small, the decor is dated, and my laptop has a larger screen than the tv.... More

I booked and paid in advance for this place and arrived 15 minutes after their 10pm closing time. I had to then pay US$180 to get a room across the road as it was the night before the Honolulu marathon. Their response was you paid and where late and we close at 10 pm. They don't have a after hours... More

Staying at the Kuhio Banyan is not for those who expect a lot. It is a little bit off of Waikiki beach, but an easy two block walk. The price is a little bit affordable, compared to the big name resorts. Each room has a little bitty refrigerator and television. But who goes to Hawaii to watch tv? The location... More

Small room in a great location. Some noise from the nightclub downstairs, 1 night out of 3 needed ear plugs to sleep. The room was immaculate, considering the age of the place. Very old decor but surprisingly well maintained. For the price I thought it excellent value for money and much better than expected for a 2-star place. I will... More

We had a room booked at the Kuhio Banyan for a week. After 3 horrible days, we have check out. The rooms are horrible. Murphy bed, dark, gross, gross, gross. The place is so noisy. Night club underneath so yelling etc until 330am. The staff at the front desk are completely miserable. Not one of them smiles or gives a... More

The check in/out process was slow and really redundant. Now to review this place, where to start, the office is a whole in the wall, if you don't pay attention you would miss the door type of place. It is an older 4 story building that has a bunch of shops on the first floor one of which is a... More

This is my 3rd review of the banyan. It consistently gets bad ratings from other travelers and to an extent I can see why. However this time I am happy to report that some money has been spent on this bldg. and the rooms. Even the old small elevator has been remodeled. Maybe RCI got on them, I don't know... More

All of the staff members were very helpful with room assistants, and locating local businesses per our requests. They even explained the trolley and bus system and give us printed information. This place is older and there are bars near by thankfully only Saturday night was noisy. Due to a previous injury I did have my husband assist me getting... More
