I was skeptical at first after reading some of the negative comments made in regards to this Hotel. After searching for a better price, I found that this place gave me what we wanted in regards to price and location. So, I took a chance! I loved this Hotel! The staff was absolutely friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. I retired... More

My friend and I stayed here at the end of our Hawaii island hopping trip. It was a big step up from teh previous hotel we had stayed in Waikiki - Sky court. The reception staff were helpful and friendly giving us a top floor room. The only problem was that the view was of a building site - but... More

Old but fine as most hotels in the area. Location is very good. Beware of the nasty "resort fee" (there's nothing extra there) which may mislead you thinking you are paying less for that hotel comparing to others.

This hotel has a wonderful location, close to everything, within walking distance. The room was basic and dated, but comfortable and clean. The front desk fellow was friendly, funny, and helpful. The hotel offers a free mall shuttle. I'd stay here again if I was on a budget.

Minor negatives: a lot of street noise at night, room seems to be a little tired and in need for... More

Acqua is a clean well managed Hotel. it is located close to the beach. It is not spectacular, but a decent three star hotel. The staff is helpful and I had a good stay. It is a bit noisy during the night.

Stayed here in November. Trip was part business, so I had a budget to account for, and it was last minute, so the price of this hotel was right. The location is good. A short walk from all the Waikiki action. The rooms are ok. Nothing fancy. The shower/bath could really use a renovation. Very old, and the faucet dripped... More
