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

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

We stayed during the busy christmas season and found the place was in a great location. The apartments had a 70s Tv show feel, somewhat dated, and an elevator was undergong what looked like long time repair, so everyone spent a good deal of time waiting arond for those. Apartment is sizeable and not bad, has everything you need. I... More

From the time I frantically started looking for a place to stay, because my other accommodations fell through, I was saved by Mr. Rick Rose who replied to one of my numerous requests on tripadvisor. He was courteous, and very resourceful. The place he booked for us at the Royal Kuhio was excellent, priced perfect, and located so close to... More

We loved this location as well as the service. This is an apartment building so there is only security at night. The vacation Internationale staff and service was wonderful. They had a good supply of beach chairs, floats etc. that other guests had left behind that we were welcome to use during our stay. We had a cancellation of our... More
