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

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

We stayed here for ONE night. We couldn't handle another. The room was booked via Lifetime in Hawaii. It was our wedding gift from my parents. There were baby roaches IN OUR BED. I was so disgusted I couldn't sleep. We got in late so we didn't leave until the next morning. We checked out at the same time we... More

We stayed in room 3412 which was a corner room and it was fantastic. Viewes to die for and plenty of room to spread out. Yes it was dated but it was clean, comfortable and convienient. The only downside is that there were not tea towles provided and no knife sharpener which made preparing food VERY difficult. There is no... More

In Feb, my husband and I stayed at the Royal Kulio in a 1BD studio condo. Everything suited our needs. So we booked again through Ali'i vacation rentals. This time air needs were for a 1BR with sleeper sofa for our teenage granddaughters. When we pulled out the sofa bed that night the support rods and springs were broken and... More

We stayed in Royal Kuhio 1311 for 7 nights June 29-July 6. Quite happy with the location - closed to everything, 10mins from beach. Parking, beach towels and 2 beach chairs were a bonus. But the unit was not very clean, extra blankets were stinky, dirty dishes, dead lizard on shelf, cockroaches in kitchen, bathroom and even the dishwasher. We... More
