We have stayed at the Ilima three times. It is just a couple of blocks from Waikiki beach, located on the back side of the big tourist area, near the canal. The rooms and furnishings are a bit old, but are spacious and include a full kitchen - great for a family stay. Free parking and Internet make it a... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Ilima Hotel Feb 2015. We had a terrific experience :friendly staff , great location, spacious clean rooms with kitchen & good value --all we expected and more . Nice to feel the genuine Hawaiian friendliness of a family operated hotel. Will definitely be returning .

Like many others we spent four nights here before embarking on a cruise and had a most enjoyable stay. Staff were friendly and accommodating, giving us access to our room early. The hotel is older but clean and having a kitchen and dinette is a bonus. Not far from Dukes Lane and the shops and beach, so you can walk... More

We stayed at the Ilima for a few nights prior to embarking on a cruise. The condo style hotel is a bit dated, but for the price and location offers that little something extra we were looking for. The room was clean and functional with a complete kitchen and dinette. Our room was quiet and had a partial ocean view... More

The staff have been very helpful during our stay. while the hotel is dated - it is comfortable,clean and well looked after. We booked the three bed room penthouse for the six people in our group. It was a perfect base to explore Oahu and had ample parking for the car we hired.

We stayed at Ilima for four nights and our experience was great. The studio was huge, clean and had everything we needed. They offer free parking which has limited space but we were able to park our car every day/night. The hotel staff is very friendly and you can feel a friendly atmosphere from the moment you enter the hotel.... More

We were looking for an apartment in the Honolulu-Waikiki area for four people for three weeks over the Christmas and New Year holiday. We needed a minimum of two bedrooms and preferably three and would not consider a place that listed the living room with sofa bed as one of the bedrooms. We began our search in early July and...

Chose the Ilima based upon TA rating. Hotel was was in a good location for restaurants & 4-5 blocks from the beach. Front desk was very personable. Rooms were dated and showed their age (70's). Beds were just OK (again age). Construction, which started early, just a block away could be heard inside with the balcony door closed. Good value... More

Booked this hotel on our first night of a O'ahu vacation. Wanted to stay downtown and experience a weekend in Honolulu. Great location to walk to the busy downtown shopping area of Honolulu and find a restaurant for lunch or supper. This is an old hotel and needs a lot of updating but still works as a place to stay...

We were on the 11th floor, Ala Wai side, with a superb view of the city and mountains. No, it isn't glitzy and full of the latest gizmos, it is full of friendly and helpful staff, comfortable spaces, a quiet location, free parking, and made the base for a great re-acquaintance with Waikiki. I want to go back ! We... More
