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.

We stayed here for a week in a pool side room early November and found the location to be great and team was friendly and helpful! The hotel was just basic and not over the top, the pool area was lovely and bed very comfortable. Great value for money, would stay again. Mahalo!

We recently stayed for 5 nights at aqua bamboo and I was very impressed with service and facilities. The pool area is beautiful and the complimentary iced tea and coffee in the lobby is a really nice touch and tasted great! We hired some cars through the hotel and it was very efficient and straightforward. All of our rooms were... More

I stayed in Aqua Bamboo for a week in November. I found it to be a clean and well maintained hotel. Friendly reception staff, especially Lokahi who always had a smile and gave excellent help. My room was a good size and the beds are very comfortable. The location is fantastic, just minutes away from the beach and many restaurants... More

We stayed here for one night on our last night in Hawaii after 5 nights in a terrible hotel elsewhere, so it was a relief to stay in accommodation that was modern, clean and comfortable. Short walk to the beach as well as many bars and restaurants. All was well until we went to check out and our shuttle that... More

Free wifi in your room, lovely amenities, pizza restaurant onsite, swimming pool...you may not need to leave the hotel! Our room faced a main road so there was a lot of street/traffic noise and the A/C competed well with the outside noise so I would recommend getting a room that faces toward the swimming pool. That being said, the location... More

Absolutely gross!! It's budget FOR sure. Bedding cheap, carpets fraying and the free coffee so awful. If you are planning on coming to Oahu... Don't stay in Waikiki the whole time. It's just too much like SF with palmTrees. Go to Kailua, north shore etc.

The room was clean and cozy with clean sheets and towels. Nice amenities including a spa robe. One block from the beach makes it easy to go for a quick swim in the ocean. Much better than waiting 20 minutes for an elevator at a large resort. The noise level is my only complaint. I was on the street side.... More
