They rent many of the units on a long term basis so it feels more like a boarding house than a hotel. I am ashamed for the Ali'i (royalty) that this place carries their name because it is so run down and unkept. It maybe one of the more economically priced hotels in Waikiki, however for what you get, it... More

I'm staying right now in this hotel, the front desk is the worst I have ever seen, as I came the woman did not even say hello only "your credit card ". Besides the front desk is most of the time empty which means that you have to wait a very long time till somebody comes. If ever you have... More

Double bed, cable television, ac, mini fridge, in room safe, hair dryer, ironing board with iron. Do not expect any luxury hear. The good thing about... More

Room was clean and comfortable. 24 hour reception if you arrive late at night as I did. Inexpensive bar at street level. If staying 9 days or more; the price for parking for a month is cheaper than daily.

We stayed here for 14 days in February and was met by Christina that was working the front counter. She was very pleasant and friendly and had us checked in quickly and efficiently. Once we got up to the room on the 20th floor we found the room to be needing a FULL renovation but had an amazing view of... More

I have stayed at the Hawaiian Monarch a few times over the years, and considerate it a low budget hotel in a busy traffic congested area. Yesterday I stopped by to inquire about renting a studio room month to month via the condo renting company that is part from the hotel. I was dressed well and presented myself. The lady... More

Dirty, smelly, inadequate. Will not reccomend and resent being cheated of hard earned money I could not get back. Want refund. Not worthy of international standards.hi would expect at least the quality of a cheap chain.

Clifford at front desk was fantastic...paying for parking and Wifi separately was such an inconvenience and its a wonder the actual hotel price was cheap because the cost of the parking daily and wifi made up for it and therefore it was not cheap at all. The air con was loud and noisy throughout the night. The ladies at recep... More
