Just returned from a two week stay at the Aqua Bamboo Hotel. The location was very good, a short walk to the beach, bus stop right across the street, lots of restaurants close by ,you can walk almost everywhere. This location is noisy as some reviews mentioned, but not a problem. Our room was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed... More

Stayed here recently to break up our trip around the islands. Staff great but the rooms definitely need a makeover. Was quite noisy when trying to sleep off the jetlag. Hotel is in a great location but looking tired, fine if you only are staying for a short visit.

We enjoyed our stay at the Aqua Bamboo Hotel. We did not rent a car for the time we were there, after reading other reviews, because the parking costs really add up. We rented one for a day, as there are rental places very close by and returned it before closing.

Great location but need to book room on higher floors 10 & above. If budget allows go for a suite. Moderate rooms very average, bathrooms in these rooms horrible. This hotel needs renovating but if on a small budget is okay, staff very nice an concierge is great.

This is a close call between 3 and 4 stars. I would give 4-plus for the staff, but three for the physical hotel. I stayed here overnight on a layover for a trip to Australia. I chose the hotel because of the good price and was not disappointed. Although the hotel has some aspects that are a bit rundown, it... More

If you need a place to get there late at night/early morning to sleep, take a shower, and leave the next morning going after your sport or date, this hotel may be a good choice for you.

We stayed here for two nights prior to a cruise. Even though our flight from Australia arrived early in the morning, we arrived at the hotel at around 9am and a room was available immediately for which we were very thankful. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our room was very comfortable and clean. It had basic cooking supplies... More

This hotel was surprising, small by Waikiki standards, not on the beach but within a 5 min walk to the beach and main shopping/dinning precinct. Staff were great, with our rooms given to us early. Beds were good, room had small kitchenette if you wanted to use it. Bathroom was very small, but more expensive hotel used later was just... More

First this is an older hotel that has bang for the buck with rooms that have cooking facilities. My room had three outdoor spaces on the 10th floor. Although not much view you could see ocean through the surrounding tall buildings, two blocks from the beach. Great dining options just a few minutes walk off the main drag felt more... More

Clean, comfortable, friendly staff. Located right near all the business of Waikiki but on a quiter street. Would definitely return to stay again. Variety of restaurants, transportation and beach all in easy walking distance. Near zoo and Diamond head.
