4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great location . Room and staff were great. Was very noisy though. They have a driveway right out front which is great when checking in and out.mellow themed place. Clean but wish the windows were bit thicker for noise.......I would ask to stay on a higher floor as may help cut out noise

So glad we found the Aqua Bamboo in Waikiki! We actually were book for three nights at another hotel, but due to some nightmarish issues, we were able to locate new, MUCH improved lodging at the Aqua Bamboo. I relaxed the moment I walked into the tranquil, beautiful lobby. The decor throughout the hotel exuded a real Aloha charm. Our... More

The room was clean. The staff was friendly. It is near the Waikiki beach, restaurants and gift shops. We parked in the next hotel which was not convenient. We had the street view. It is a nice boutique hotel. It was a good price for an average service.

Stayed here our first stay in Hawaii. Location was ok. Facilities were average. The room wasnt great as they weren't the cleanest and they haven't been maintained that well. The concierge wasn't helpful at all when we asked for directions around the island. Think he wanted to sleep instead of deal with tourists. Wouldn't and haven't stayed here since.

One night stay at the ABW. Staff is very pleasant and helpful. Our room was clean and tidy but on the small side. Hotel is a bit dated but there is evidence that management is working hard to keep things right. I would not hesitate to stay again. Short two block walk to the beach.

My boyfriend was visiting Hawaii and my grandma wanted to treat us to a few nights in Waikiki. This hotel exceeded all expectations! The Asian inspired decor is beautiful, if a little faded, which somehow just adds to the personality of this cute place. On checkin, we were upgraded to a Suite for free! This was a huge surprise and... More

Upon checkin we were greeted warmly and received great treatment from the front desk and bell hop. The property is showing signs of its age around the edges, and you can see signs of wear on the cabinets, door jambs, etc. But the rooms are fresh and updated, and unique in the fact that they have 2 separate bedrooms and...
