Very old and not-updated hotel. Location is good....close to many High End shops and restaurants, but a very noisy location. Traffic and loud pedestrians all night long. The door didn't close completely even with the locks engaged. The bed was clean as were the linens. Towels were changed daily and were clean, but not luxurious in any way. The rooms,... More

As someone who lived in one of these studio rooms in the 1970's, it truly cracks me up to see that the rooms look EXACTLY the same as they did back then! Same bathrooms, too. No wonder people are complaining. It was fun to live on Kalakaua Avenue as a teenager, but to make this into a hotel is crazy.... More

We stayed there for a few days first stop in honolulu. For that price I have to say we were a bit surprised cause it's really old and it doesn't look that nice .If you stay there for just a night or two it's perfect cause of the location ! It's a very beautiful spot close to the beach and... More

Not exactly a five-star hotel but right in the heart of the Waikiki shopping precinct and a fairly short walk to the beach. Surrounded by high-end shops and restaurants, the accommodation is basic but you will money left over for shopping and sightseeing. An ABC convenience store across the road which sells food, clothing and booze. Get a unit fronting... More

When we had booked this hotel we had emailed in advanced asking if we could store out luggage while we went camping, they seemed to have no problem with this, until we arrived. When we asked where we would keep our bags the lady insisted we must have been confused even after we had shown her the email stating we... More

I booked this hotel for mid October months ago. In early October, I called this hotel to find out more about the bathroom size and to my horror, the hotel just cancelled my reservations without informing me. Can you imagine if I had arrived on that day with 2 children to only find out I have no where to stay?... More

We had a one night stay at your hotel, Sept. 19. 2015. It had to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Upon arrival we discovered that the elevator was broken. I was traveling with an elderly gentleman and the stairs were the only way to our room. Due to time constraints and our one night stay in... More

For the price that I paid for the room, it was horrific meaning that when me and my wife got into the room, IT WAS VERY HOT! The next thing was that the elevator wasn't working, it took us over 45 minutes to find out that the hotel didn't have a parking spot after making circles and finally, the shower... More

Unprepared for firstly the "unwelcoming" entrance to this establishment. Up a narrow walkway, past a lift[ that reminded me of the ancient ones in Paris] To find the "Office" a room out by the pool area with 3/4 of the window area covered with glass[ like banks used to have']. We had to bend down to talk to the "not... More
