We stayed here for a week, the staff are amazing and do the best they can to help you with your stay. Rooms were clean and had the few things you would need. The noise off of The street is very loud if you have a room on the road, there are glass shutters and you can hear all the... More

It was my second time in Honolulu, and therefore I think the hotel was quite expensive compared to the "quality". Surveillence cameras everywhere made us a bit uncomfortable. But the staff in general are friendly and helpful. The hotel face the canal so it has a beautiful scenary. The location is near all shopping centers and eating places. On the... More

The staff at this hotel go out of there way to assist you no matter what the issue. Room was exceptionally clean and large. The kitchen is a bonus with a 4 burner stove and large refrigerator although our room lacked a couple of utensils. In the lobby there is coffee, tea and ice cold water available. The beach is...

Our room was very spacious and clean. It had a small balcony and a kitchenette with all kitchen stuff you would need. The location is great. You can walk to Waikiki beach in 10 minutes. The building is old, so all the street noise was easily heard in the room, and the AC was not the quietest one. Other then... More

This place is like 5 - 10 minutes walking distance to the Waikiki Beach.The room that I stayed at has a kitchenette ( was able to save a lot of money because of this). With regards to grocery shopping it's close to the Pantry (which is like a smaller version of Whole foods). The Hotel is located along the Ala... More

Hmmmmm don't want to be rude but wasn't a fan. However this hotel is within walking distance to Waikiki. The smell of urine near the lift on the level we were on was disgusting. Windows were dirty. Bathroom sink was old, old, old but the shower had been renovated. Front desk staff were really nice.

If you are staying in Oahu and just looking for a place to crash, this is the place. The building is already renovated. The pictures of the rooms that I saw here is far different. Our room was big and it's far more cozy than the pictures. We had a balcony and had a good sunrise view. At night, you... More

We had an excellent stay at the hotel! I was dumb enough to screw up our bookings where we forgot 1 night so had to add on an extra night through online. Upon arrival, to save confusion Edmond helped secure us the same room for both nights (it was even larger than the one we had booked) so we wouldn't... More
