Interior dated but so centrally located, you can walk to the beach. Personnel friendly and helpful--elevator slow, but they are working on new express elevator Room spacious and well stocked. Nothing else to report--hope this is 200 characters by now

This is not a new building but is well maintained. We were in unit 2305 that faced the mountain side. It was a one bedroom unit that had twin beds. Like many others said it is near everything. The unit was clean and showed that it has been taken care of. Staff and people we ran into was nice and... More

Spent the last two weeks of April 2015 here with my girlfriend. I believe we were in 2306. Got through my RCI time share, property is managed by Lifetime in Hawaii. Booking was simple, as was all the confirmations. Outside of the building is very clean and well kept. We arrived 10 P.M. at night and got our keys from... More

We stayed a week in unit 1909 as a time share exchange. Can't understand how some reviews find fault with Royal Kuhio. Maybe we just had an exceptional room? You may hear sirens as some reviews mentioned. This is a large city and sirens would be heard from other places to stay. Never bothered us. Perfect location. No car needed.... More

The one bedrooms with a pull out bed were nice and small, but gets very hot and humid. We stayed in two different rooms. in 914 the shower was very low power, but in room 911 the shower was a different model and was a lot nicer. If you're lucky you'll get here when all the elevators are remodeled and... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am concerned with your comments and contacted the Resort Manager and the Resident Manager neither of which had any record of a naked guy at the pool being reported. I would welcome you to contact me to discuss this further at 425-454-3065 this is not appropriate behavior that we... More

Apartment 2012 - A friend & I spent a week here in February, 2015. Great location, walking distance to Waikiki, shopping and restaurants. Our apartment was exactly as shown in photos and had everything as described. It is an apartment, so we didn't expect room service and were aware when we booked that we would have to provide our own... More

We have just had a week staying in one of the suites on top of the Royal Kuhio, in Waikiki. (Suite 3717). It was ideal for the four of us offering four double beds, two bathrooms, plenty of living space and two balconies with a good view of the Friday night fireworks. Although not right on the beach, the location... More

The resort does "not" have a heated pool as they claim, they only give 2 keys per room (you need a key to get to the elevators and parking), "no" hot tub, Saunas are in both men and women's change room so no mingling with spouse or family, check for housekeeping because we didn't get any, coffee machine in rooms...

We stayed here for two weeks (early 2014). This time, we used the same budget to stay somewhere else for 10 days. The experience is like night and day. We popped into the RK, and yes, there was the same dreadful insect repellent spray smell, the same drabness, and real people who were expressing their extreme dissapointment with this property....

We normally stay at 4-5 star hotels and the last trip was at the Royal Hawaiian which was excellent. This trip we needed 2 bedrooms and a kitchen due to diet requirements of a member so I trawled through all the apartment rentals around Waikiki. Most were nondescript in that the photos seemed generic so one could not tell how... More
