We stayed at a residence room in this hotel via Airbnb. It's a bit old, but the service is great. Roxy in particular at the front desk proved a huge asset to helping us manage our stay and get what we needed. There were also laundry facilities, and it was easy to book parking as-needed. We'd readily stay again. The... More

The hotel is old and the rooms weird. I had a kitchenette two steps away from my bed. It was a little dirty upon arrival (bare feet showed lots of dirt and hairs all over the bathroom). There was a single tiny air conditioning machine that really didn't cool the room, especially during the hottest hours. The ventilator, for some... More

I couldn't find where to leave a review on this particular privately owned room, though the room was located in this hotel. We were confused when we booked and actually thought we were booking with the Waikiki Grand Hotel (which I wish we did). Instead upon arrival we realise we booked a room which is privately owned within the hotel.... More

I had a free night from hotels.com, so we stayed here two nights in the week before our wedding in Hawaii. Our families both live in Hawaii, so we didn't really explore the area around the hotel. I thought the hotel was quite nice for what we paid. It had a pretty big kitchen, though we didn't use it. I... More

I needed a quick last minute getaway in December when everything in Hawaii is ridiculously overpriced. However, I came across Castle Waikiki for a great price and saw decent reviews for this hotel. For the price I paid it was a steal. It was more than enough space for one person including a massive living room and full size kitchen.... More

The Castle Waikiki Grand Hotel was actually cut-up and sold as mini-condos, a few years ago... most are privately owned... The views can be astounding!!! Right across from the Honolulu Zoo & Diamond Head... Many units have both beach and Diamond Head views... my unit had very tired furniture, but was freshly painted and well appointed. The front desk closes... More

In terms of price-quality, it's a good deal with good location, near the beach, across a park, rooftop terrace, numbered lock so no need to carry a room key card and a kitchenette. Furnitures were bit worn with old curtain.

Very accommodation for our quick stay at Waikiki beach. Roxy was very informative about the area and she is very friendly. The room was very nice and clean. Location very close to beach and shopping. With kind regards Dave and Kasey Stoverink

We nearly didn't book this rental because of some of the reviews. Needless to say, our stresses were put aside as soon as we arrived! The location couldn't have been better and the hotel was far nicer than we were expecting for the price! Literally right on the beach, with shops of all kinds, moped rentals and lots of activities...

Our group had 2 separate reservations (in consecutive confirmation numbers) for our recent 2 night stay. Sadly, when we showed up at check-in, they were only expecting 1 room. No worries, because Roxie at the front desk was able to fix everything and gave the second room on the same floor. Best part, she was able to honor the same... More
