I have stayed a number of years at this site- as always the staff was helpful. I also got to use the facilities to do laundry - it was clean and all machines working properly. Also, I was able to check out chairs and towels for the beach. The unit was big enough with a nice view to Diamond Head... More

I have to admit, when I saw the other reviews, photos and even first arrived at the room, I was a bit worried. However, this place panned out to be an excellent value in the heart of waikiki. It had excellent security, although it limited how easy getting in and out of the building was. It was extremely clean and... More

The condo is in a GREAT location. Its close to everything. I walked to a secluded beach and to the harbor. Its right on the public bus line and the tour buses pick up from across the street. I spent lots of time at the Sheraton's beach and lobby area which is nice and the Royal Kuhio is only a... More

Condo #2613: My wife and I was given a warm welcome; Receptionists - Jackie and Crystal were very informative, whenever we had questions. The accommodation was well appointed, very clean with all the necessary supplies; very comfortable bed with a remote to change from hard thru soft; flat screen tv and wi-fi which was a nominal sum for the week....

The carpet was filthy (quite unhealthy), DW did not work, elevator had problems and late for 2 appointments. Husband had to walk down 30 flights. The usual creatures crawling around. Refrigerator needed cleaning. When we shared cleaning concern (sent carpet pictures) we were informed it was thoroughly cleaned! Vinyl flooring needed replaced. Beds were comfortable. Condo 3001. Would not recommend.... More

We stayed here early July. The good news: - the "studio" actually had a small (well equiped) kitchen, dining table, and sitting area - the bathroom and towel supply was adequate - it was clean - the location was convenient to most of Waikiki (but not ocean front) The bad news: - a few bugs in the kitchen (a can...

We booked through Ali'i Beach Rentals and stayed in unit 2012. The booking process was a breeze and they send you reminders and all the info you need. The location is central to the downtown area and you can walk to everything in the downtown Waikiki area. The building provides a parking spot for a car included with the rental.... More

We were spending 4 nights in Honolulu with two of out teenage grandchildren. We had two queen beds in the bedroom and a pullout sofa bed. That would have worked out well except when we pulled out the sofa bed, it was broken & couldn't be slept in. There was a heavy urine smell in the bathroom, so we emailed... More

I booked a week vacation for my 20 year old daughter and her friend. We have a Vacation Internationale timeshare,and the Royal Kuhio was my first choice for them. When I asked my daughter if anything was bad about their room -on the 11th floor- she only could say the air conditioning was a little loud. They never saw a... More
