I spent a week at this hotel with my daughter's basketball team. This is a great small hotel. It's not on the main strip but close enough to walk to everything. This is a perfect place for families. It was clean! They have a small kitchen in every room. It has a microwave, full size frig. small electric, 4 burner... More

This is a mid range hotel a couple of large blocks from the beach front main thoroughfare. The staff here were always very pleasant and helpful. The WiFi worked well. The room was clean and tidy with handy kitchen facilities. Balcony was nice, large fridge kept the beer cold. All quite fine. Only negatives I can think of were: -... More

We had a great time at the Ilima Hotel. It is an older style Waikiki hotel, but the rooms are very large and the rates are very reasonable for being in Waikiki, makes it worth the walk to the beach. Wonderful and very helpful staff. Nice clean hotel. Lots of wonderful restaurants with walking distance. Our only negative is that... More

The Ilima is a basic but clean hotel with nice sized rooms. The bed was very comfortable. What made my stay in the Ilima was the attitude from the staff, and one staff member in particular with the assistance she provided to my family and I during our stay.

From the moment we walked in we felt welcome.The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.The hotel is a bit older but the rooms and public areas were spotlessly clean and well maintained.The beds were very comfortable and having a kitchen was an added bonus.The room was huge. We had a view towards Kuhio Ave & the the "former" International Market... More

Pros: cheaper than many other Waikiki hotels, coin laundry , friendly staff, small kitchen in room with a good sized fridge, lanai on room, small but nice pool, free lei-making class, free parking (park by 7 each night and rent a small car to ensure a space), walking distance from beach/restaurants/grocery store/zoo/aquarium/bus stops/etc... We even walked to diamond head, enterprise... More

We (family of four) recently stayed at Ilima Hotel when we first arrived in Honolulu. We decided to stay here for several reasons: (1) positive reviews, (2) location, and (3) it was one of the few one bedroom hotels listed on the TLA list in our price range. I didn’t know how long we would be in a hotel &... More

The hotel is well located, close to the beach, and has got a private parking. The rooms are ok, nothing special but is value for money. The beds were quite... More

This was the second time we have stayed at this establishment and could not fault it. Although it is slightly outdated, this did not bother us in the slightest and only adds to the character of the building. The staff were sensational and super helpful, and the room was extremely spacious, clean, well maintained and suited all our needs. The... More

The Ilima is one of the somewhat dated hotels in Waikiki and is a bit of a walk to the beach but right in the heart of Waikiki. Bathrooms have been renovated and are clean and efficient. Beds are comfortable and has temp controlled Aircon in each room. We stayed in two bedroom apt. At front, which can be a... More
