This is a great little boutique hotel with an excellent Waikiki location. All of the staff are friendly, attentive and very helpful. Stayed in a lovely, very quiet room and in three nights never heard any noise from adjoining rooms. Would book again and highly recommend. Thank you!

Wasn't sure about this hotel when I first arrived, but after a night or 2 once I got my bearings in my opinion it's extremely well located. Right in between the 2 main roads of Waikiki 5 mins walk to Kalakaua/Waikiki Beach/shopping shopping shopping one way, 1-10mins to great food, stores, coffee or anything else on Kuhio the other. Great... More

I stayed for 9 nights recently. I enjoyed everything about the hotel. Location, the room, the staff. Easy 2 minute walk to Waikiki Beach at half the cost of staying right on the beach. I will be back for sure!

My husband and I recently stayed 7 nights at the Shoreline and were very pleased. The lobby and rooms were very clean and the staff friendly and helpful. We had a queen room that had a small refrigerator, microwave and a Kuerig coffee maker. The room was quite small and when we return will get a slightly larger room. Valet... More

Stayed for 8 nights. Hotel is boutique and has a nicer feel than a lot of the more dated classics around Waikiki. Location is fantastic. It is close to everything. The beach is a 200m walk. Ross is across the road, H&M on the corner, Victoria Secrets and all the good shops, supermarkets and public transport links are not far... More

Stayed at this hotel for a week, it's not a five star hotel but the room was clean and the location can't get any better for the price we paid. It is in close proximity to the beach and shops. It is also close to the duty free gallery which about less than 5 min walk from where we took... More

Stay here for 2 nights in Oct. - stopped in HNL on our way to Maui - specifically to see Pearl Harbor. Easy 2 minute walk to Waikiki Beach at half the cost of staying right on the beach. Hotel was clean with average sized rooms and staff was friendly and it's location was very central.

We stayed in this hotel for 15 nights, using the Priceline express deals for Waikiki City (three stars) for $95 a night. We arrived at 11am and despite check-in not available till 3pm the front desk clerk (Monalyn) found a room available for us right away. She said it was on a higher level, so this might have meant we... More
