Great place to stay in heart of Waikiki. Just a couple short blocks to the beach and lots of food and shopping options to choose from. Parking is one of the best features -- you can get in and out of the garage in about a minute -- or have the valet park your car at same price. This really... More

I booked my room through Trip Advisor. It was a last-minute deal for only $124 total. The room was adequate. The amenities were okay: fridge, microwave, coffeepot, and about what I expected. The shower control didn't work, so I could only get a weak trickle. The remote for the AC didn't work, but I was able to operate it manually.... More

We're on our last day here at the Bamboo Aqua Hotel. We first had a condo booked for our 11-day trip but the place we booked was far off Waikiki and they weren't being straight forward about it on their booking website so after arriving, we decided to find another place to stay. We looked around and called a few... More

We were staying with a group and wanted to book a few nights away. We found this hotel on a budget and it was a great find ticked away. Central location. Close to beach and good pool atmosphere. Would visit again for sure. We would recommend this if you are not looking for a fancy high end hotel!

I recently returned to Aqua Bamboo (3rd time)- I love the 'not for the masses' low-key vibe. The location couldn't be better, we walked and bussed everywhere! Restaurants, grocery store are within a block, and the beach is two blocks away. Loved having a kitchen and eating breakfast every morning on our balcony. Free DVDS, beach towels and chairs and...

The hotel has older decor with lots of wood and bamboo decor. The hotel and grounds were very nice clean. The hotel staff were very helpful. I appreciated the free chairs and beach towels for use at Waikiki beach.

The room was small but clean with a kitchenette, fridge & microwave. We did our grocery shopping at the Food Pantry just down the street and saved by eating breakfast in our room every morning. Our room had a little patio that overlooked an apartment complex and car rental lot. It didn't matter to us since we were out and... More

I stayed at the Aqua Bamboo Waikiki from 8-14 March 2015 whilst in Oahu on the recommendation of my travel agent. I was impressed with the staff and their efficiency in helping me check-in, book tours, find restaurants and attractions and check-out. The other guests were also quite friendly and easy to talk to. I had Room 1206 which is... More

The Aqua Bamboo hotel was a very nice stay for the price. It is very quaint, but the room we had was well cared for and very spacious. We booked at the last minute and they upgraded us to a suite. My only complaints would be that 1) the air conditioners in both rooms were broken, in that one did... More
