We've just returned from our holiday in Waikiki and stayed at the Ilima hotel. I know this is going to be a long review, but please take the time to read it as I have nothing but praise for the hotel and staff. We stayed there for 2 weeks and had a great time. The hotel was just lovely, clean... More

We usually rent a condo at 444 Nahua around the corner from the Ilima hotel, but this time we were booking last minute and weren't able to get the condo. We went with the Ilima so we would still be staying in our usual neighbourhood. We stayed at the Ilima Hotel for 9 days. Our room was large, clean, comfortable... More

We only stayed here for one night as we were able to get an earlier flight, but it is a nice clean place with FREE parking. Free parking is hard to find in Honolulu! It was a decent location. Had a little kitchenette in the room, which was nice. If you were going to stay longer, it would be ideal... More

A little bit on how I rate hotels: we are practical, value conscious travelers with customer service being top priority. So I can/will equally give 5 stars to a "budget" hotel as I would a fancy resort. OK onto the review. Disclosure: our friend is good friends with the GM so we got a "friends and family" rate, much less... More

Good value for the area (everything is relative!). We were in a penthouse studio. Came with kitchen and nice balcony overlooking mountains and canal. No problem with noise. Obviously an older property, but was clean and comfortable. Having the kitchen made it easy to eat in on occasion as Waikkii is pricey no matter what you do! Staff very accommodating... More

Aloha I live on Oahu, Hawaii, in Pearl City. I had my son Michael come to Hawaii for two weeks. I booked his stay at the Ilima Hotel. He just left to go home to California on Sept. 3rd. He was very impressed with the hotel and his room. His room had a full kitchen with microwave and pots, pans... More

I've stayed at the Ilima Hotel for a staycation during the spring and summer times and each time it was great. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Check in/out was easy and quick. All the times I've stayed here, it was quiet. The hotel has studios, 1-3 bedrooms and a penthouse I think comes with four bedrooms, but not... More

The staff were all friendly and welcoming. The room was spacious with 2 double beds and a kitchenette with a large balcony overlooking the canal. The location is perfect, just a few minutes walk to the main street and another block to the beach. The "Pink Trolley" leaves from the corner to go to the Alamoana Shopping Centre for $2... More

The hotel is well located and includes parking in the room cost (no extra charge unlike most other hotels in Waikiki). During our stay, we always found a parking spot although they are offered on a "first come first served" basis (ie, they are not reserved on a room number or floor basis). The room was clean and included a... More

All the staff we met at the Ilima were very friendly. We never passed in or our without receiving a cheery smile and an ‘Aloha’. They are a credit to the hotel. We stayed for a week in June, and booked a Deluxe Studio room at just $130 a night, which is excellent value for Waikiki. They offer standard, superior... More
