Cockroaches coming from ungrouted bathtub. When complained they didn't do anything. Had to buy duct tape & tape the ungrouted tub. No washer & dryer in room but on 7th fl & u have to pay about $2 to wash & another $2 to dry. Small ants on kitchen countertop. I wouldn't stay here.

This place could not have been in a better location! Loved the fact that it was off the main strip but still so extremely close to everything. Fully stocked kitchen to cook when we wanted to (close to Safeway for groceries). Lots of great restaueants, bars and shops. Will definately return!

We Stayed here Aug 9-17, 2014 for our honeymoon. We stayed in condo 1104. This place was great. Nice comfortable, clean room. We had everything we needed. The kitchen was fully stocked for cooking. Lots of extra towels and linens for our whole week. The location is a quick walk from the beach. There were plenty of good restaurants nearby.... More

Stayed here for 5 days (Aug. 4-8), and got the room (1412) at the last minute. Clean room, reliable wifi, friendly staff, great location, quiet room, nice view. Great value for your money. Bus stop is just in front. Walking distance to the beach, ABC stores, McDonalds, Duty Free, Food Pantry, and many more... I love this place!!

Stayed with my family in 2 bed/2 bath condo on 36th floor. Great views, clean condo apartment. Great location in Waikiki. Lobby a bit stinky as they are doing work on the elevator - so smell of cleaners and solvents was strong. Rental agency was very receptive to any and all concerns and addressed them quickly. Waikiki is expensive so... More

Don't believe the rave reviews. My husband and I spent two miserable weeks here. The smell just before you enter the building never disappears, and the outdated and shabby upkeep should be accompanied with back packer rates, not the equivalent of a four star hotel charges. The outright lies about this property being great are evidence of desperate owners or... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom penthouse on the 38th floor of the Royal Kuhio. Yes, they do have 38 floors in this building. This condo was absolutely wonderful. Better than its description and photographs. We had 11 people in it and it still felt like it was not crowded. Sarah, the condo manager was very efficient. It also included... More

We stayed 11 nights in a corner room on 37th floor. We had ocean and mountain views that were magical at night time. No sign of roaches in our room. We had two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one with a bath. Amenities were adequate. Towels very old and bedding also rather old. You would not get a better location. Near... More

I stayed at Royal Kuhio for 7 days last week. We stayed on the 27th floor (there are 30 floors) and parking through our timeshare was free. It was a studio condo with a sofa bed and queen sleep number bed and a shower (no tub). Amenities: Dishes, refrigerator, pots and pans, utensils, kitchen, iron, vacuum etc. We didn't pay... More

Great location, right in the middle of Waikiki, near to every place else. Spacious rooms, almost complete utensils (we cooked a lot when we were there), balcony but -- yes, we found roaches. And there is a very strong chemical (cleaning solution?) smell in the reception area. The lock in the room almost seems that its so easy to pick... More
