Rooms need updated. Is a few blocks from the beach. The pool is tiny an the tall buildings block the sun for part of the day. Ala Moana Blvd is a very busy street. Lots of loud buses throughout the day. My favorite part of the hotel was the spacious patios. Spent a lot of time with a nice drink... More

We stayed 1 night pre-cruise. The staff was very accommodating. They held our luggage prior to check-in and again post check-out while we were touring Hawaii. They were very knowledgeable about the area and gave helpful suggestions and advise when asked. They arranged our taxi to the pier which was at a reasonable price.

We picked this hotel because we were only going to be in Honolulu for two days before taking a cruise, and we had packed those two days with activities on Oahu. Since we weren't going to be in the room that much, and since we were going to be on a cruise the following week, we didn't really care if... More

2-night stay was booked as Deluxe Diamond Head view. Room was large, clean and comfortable but had no balcony and primary view was an elevator shaft. Diamond Head was visible if you stretched over the railing. Friendly staff, central location to all Waikiki

I lived here in 2007 for a few months and it was just an adequate place to stay. The rooms were pale and a bit shabby, the internet service was non-existent, but it was affordable at that time and the location was good for me since I had lived around the corner in the Waipuna condo for 5 years in...

No doubt about it, the location is excellent for the price, and it has the majority of facilities to really enjoy Waikiki. However our experience of the rooms were far from nice - the mould smell on the whole third floor was powerful and not enjoyable, and the old air conditioner system sounded like a truck running through the room....

We stayed at the Aqua Palms for our Honeymoon, and it was great! The room was spacious and clean, the staff were very friendly, the location was walking distance of everything we needed, and the price was very reasonable for being walking distance from the beach. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others and would stay here again.

Had a great week's stay. The rooms are big enough for 4- we had a sofa bed for the teens. The bathrooms are a bit small- and the toilet, sink, mirror are all in the same room so it is hard to have several getting ready at once- but the extra large mirror in bedroom helps. Beds and pillows were... More

This was a great priced hotel close to a lot of stuff. It was right across from the Hiltion Hawaiian village and had free breakfast at the I-Hop next to it.
