Sorry to hear it will be closing for 2 years. The building needs some work, but that's part of the charm. I hope all the workers come back they make the place so great. I'm so glad I got the chance to stay there before the remodel. I know it's necessary to upgrade and repair but this old place had... More

There's another hotel called the Aston Beach Hotel. It's much larger, newer and fancier. This hotel is really a dump but it's directly opposite the beach. We had a back room overlooking the air con courtyard. It was noisy and smelt of cigarette smoke. Clean sheets, hot water and thank heavens it was only for one night. They did have... More

Awesome Location! Staff wonderful,but hotel was clean and that was all we were expecting based on the reviews. Hotel is closing in July 2015 for renovations for 2 years and prices will probably go up due to this. Wi-fi never worked, but location made up for it. Free beach towels and baggage storage available. Location, Location, Location. This is the... More

We loved our stay here. It's an older hotel, but the price was great and we had a balcony overlooking the beach. What more could you ask for? They don't offer a continental breakfast but there are options close by. We will definitely stay here again!

I stayed here for part of my trip, with my travel agent booking the wrong aston. at first the room is shock to the system when your expecting a 4-5 star hotel. but when staying here I would say the staff behind the front desk especially one guy in particular (cant remember his name but has tattoos) was very friendly...

This hotel is in a fantastic location, right on the beach and within walking distance of great shops and restaurants. The staff were friendly and my room was clean. If I was to be picky, I would say that my bed was quite uncomfortable and that the air conditioner was quite loud. Really, the decor is very dated and the... More

Finding entrance is terrible if you're driving. Parking is at sister hotel. Elevator is tiny and lined with various types of flooring. I couldn't fit when maid had towel bin and had to take stairs. Stairs lead outside the lobby, super safe (not!) Everything in our room looks like it was new in 1970. The mold and or stains on... More

We stayed at this hotel 1 night on 12/11 It's a great location as it is right in front of Waikiki Beach and walking distance to all the stores and restaurants in downtown Waikiki. The room we had was small but we just needed it to sleep we had no view, but we weren't looking for that. The staff was... More

Sadly, as advised by staff, this hotel is closing in July 2015. After 8 years of staying at this hotel, located exactly opposite the infamous Waikiki Beach, this hotel sadly, will be closing for approx. 2 years and converted to another style of accommodation. This hotel is currently very clean, affordable in the perfect position to Waikiki beach and famous... More
