Enjoyed staying at this little hotel off the main drag in waikiki. While my view was of the building next door, it didn't really matter to me since I wasn't in the room much and wasn't planning on sitting on the balcony anyhow. rooms were clean, beds comfortable, and staff was friendly. Would recommend.

Traveling with another couple we were able to reserve the 2 bedroom, 2 bath penthouse for slightly more than 2 separate rooms. It worked out great. You get both mountain and ocean (albeit from a distance) views. Great access to beach 2 blocks away. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I would stay at this properly again if in... More

I stayed here in 2008 I think. It was sort of hard to spot if your not paying attention since it blends into the busy streets of Honolulu. Though, that doesn't mean it isn't a relaxing hotel. I and a friend of mine enjoyed this hotel on our way home from being stationed overseas and as a treat the hotel... More

Good value and great location, as you are in the central of everything. You are literally 2 blocks from Waikiki beach, shopping and many restaurants. There is a bus stop and trolley stop directly across from the hotel.. Rooms are small, but nicely done... If you are use to luxury this is not the place for you, however if you... More

Stayed at the Aqua Bamboo for the past 4 nights and overall, I would say it was a nice hotel and worthy of it's ranking on TripAdvisor. If you're looking for something large, corporate and with all sorts of modern touches and flair, then the Bamboo is probably not for you. If you want a reasonably priced room that's close... More

We have used another Aqua hotel before and thought to try Aqua Bamboo. We got a room with a kitchenette which was good as we can cook our own breakfast. However, we were on level 3 so the view we got was the next door neighbour. We tried to get another room but was told there was none. Disappointed as... More

My friend and I recently stayed 6 nights at Aqua Bamboo Waikiki (BAW has 92 rooms; being small it feels "homey, non-commercial"). The room rate was great; at a modest increase we upgraded to larger room with a patio & mountain view. Hotel staff is tops: from entering the front door they were friendly, informative and cheerful! The hotel is... More

I had a spur of the moment trip required for business and had to find a place quick. Discovered this place randomly, and I have not complaints. The room was very well put together, full amenities including stove, refrigerator and microwave. Air conditioners worked well which is a requirement, it is Hawaii and the heat and humidity outside was ridiculous,... More
