We stayed here 3 nights 10 days ago. Small but nicely decorated, clean but older, renovated room and bathroom. Fabulous pool lounge area, loved the salt water and that it was open a bit later! Our balcony door in room 708 didn't shut or lock properly but we were on the 7th floor so it wasn't a problem. The a/c... 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...

Had room 510. Really spacious, full kitchen.not excessively noisy by waikiki/ honolulu standards.highly recommended. Good personal service. Much more personal than the big hotels.lovely pool/outside lounging area. We stayed here on 2 occasions for a total of 7 nights. First on third floor then on 5th. Try to get room facing pool.

We (2 adults and 2 teenagers) stayed at Aqua Bamboo for a little over 2 weeks in a 1 bedroom suite with full kitchen and can't speak highly enough about the hotel. Yes it's not 5 star, but because of it's size and location, you don't need all the bells and whistles of the bigger hotels. Some people may not... More

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment at the Aqua Bamboo (2 adults, 2 children aged 14 and 11) for 2 nights. We have previously stayed here as it is in a great location, only a couple of blocks back from the beach and close to just about everything in Waikiki. The building is showing its age, it is not...

We loved our room during our recent 3 night stay (July 2015). We had an upgraded room on the tenth floor, with several small but openable balconies and even a bamboo waterfall in our room! The staff was extremely helpful in setting up rides to activities and the airport. One bellman in particular went out of his way to get... More

Loved this place. Location was great. Only a five minute walk to the beach. Pool area was fantastic, loved the little outdoor huts they had by the pool. My husband & I used them a couple of times to read a book & relax (and hubby even fell asleep!). Our room was clean & modern but still had that Hawaiian... More

I absolutely loved our stay at the Aqua Bamboo. The service was fantastic. I took my mother to Hawaii for our very first time for mothers day along with my nieces and sister.

This small hotel welcomes you with friendly staff and a lovely, warm, well decorated foyer. The rooms are quiet and tho not all have ocean views, many other hotels would not as well, given the amount of high rises in the area. Certainly not a distraction. Rooms are decorated tastefully with bamboo furniture and pictures on the walls. Lots of... More

At the Aqua Bamboo everyone treated us very great. The pool and jacuzzi were very nice a clean and the room was great. Unlimited dvd/game rentals really helped when we were trying to kill time. Nothing I could say about this trip would be a negative experience. Thank you for such a great stay!
