Everything about this truly boutique sized hotel spelt luxury. We were keen to try this hotel which was designed ever so beautifully with lovely touches everywhere. I am a bit of a design junkie so this hotel was such a find and not what I expected in the land of the hula. Outside of that nothing was too much trouble... More

We did a tremendous amount of research before picking this hotel for our seven night stay. It's located near the end of the strip near Diamond Head but only 1.5 mile walk from the other end or bus service at the front door. Not right on the beach but you can see the beach from the front facing windows with... More

We found the location fantastic. Whilst not beach front, it was only a block to walk to the beach, great bars (try Tiki's Grill & Bar), the main shopping strip, the zoo and where the tour buses leave from. Value for money compared to the prices of other hotels in the area (even with the boutique fee added). Breakfast was... More

a/c did not keep room cool all the time. The blind in room smelled horrible when the sun hit it but was taken down. They advertise there Kuerig coffee pot but it is just one cup per person per day.

We stayed here for 3 nights over Memorial Day Weekend at the end of May. My wife and I were impressed as soon as we arrived, with cold towels and pineapple juice provided at check-in (even at 11 p.m.). The location is hard to beat, only 1/2 block off of Kalakaua Ave, the beach and a wide variety of shops... More

Spent 4 days at this boutique style hotel. Great location, free wifi, inc breakfast. Staff excellent. Note: beware we booked a double bed which was really only a single - very small bed and room. For a $USD40 per day extra charge was upgraded to a king bed - room size good - had balcony and sea views. Has small... More

We were not expecting too much, based on price and some previous reviews, but Hotel Renew is a nice hotel. Sure, the rooms are small, the air conditioning is noisy, rooms and corridors smell a bit stale, the amenities fee is at least $5 too much, and sound insulation is lacking. However, the staff are friendly, particularly Warren. He is... More

We really liked this small hotel. Despite being close to the beach and an outdoor entertainment venue it was reasonably quiet and felt quite homely. It is obviously an old hotel that has been renovated but we loved the decor and the offer of fragrance for our room. There isn't access to a pool but beach chairs and towels can... More
