We rented a unit on a high floor facing the canal side for a week in late July and were happy overall with the unit. Our unit was rented from the owner directly. Through a vacation rental website. Pluses: fantastic location close to the main shopping drag; covered, secured ground parking but also easy access to buses; 30 mins to... More

We recently stayed in room 2408 at the Royal Kuhio. The lobby was nicer than I expected from other reviews but inner area was quite worn and needed a good cleaning. They were working on the third elevator so only two were available. Elevators were pretty dingy. The hallway to our room was narrow and dark. The unit was large... More

The Royal Kuhio is showing a bit of its age, especially in the public areas (lobby, elevators and hallways), but it is a wonderful location in Waikiki Beach close to all and the ocean view units are awesome. Had a 1 br/1ba with two adults first week and three adults second week. Plenty of space to spread out and loads... More

We had no problem with roaches, were in room 1507... More

Date of stay September 2014 First of all I'd like to say that I read many mixed reviews before staying here, some had me a little worried, so I will begin with.

We stayed in the penthouse suite...unit 3802. There were 5 adults and 2 kids, and we never felt cramped! Three bedrooms, each sleep 4, each room has their own bathroom, and laundry is in the unit!! The building is a bit dated, but who cares, you aren't there to stay in the room! Unit 3802 has a kitchen (no oven... More

It is a great location only 4 blocks from Waikiki Beach. This is not a hotel, it is a high-rise condo bldg. No front desk, just a security guard. All types of restaurants located within walking distance. Bus stops right in front of bldg. It is not fancy but was clean. No maid service but they did replace the towels... More

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.
