Very clean rooms. The staff was very friendly. Beautiful views. I highly recommend it. I would definitely visit again! Good location - right across the Honolulu Zoo which is wonderful. Only like a 100m away from the ocean. Great hotel!

Staff were very helpful and there were no issues. We felt very comfortable staying there and we would stay at this hotel again. Lots of day tours on offer in foyer and good value prices. The hotel is dated but clean and tidy and multi storey gives you a great view. It has laundry facilities, gift shop, pool bar, etc.... More

I stayed at this hotel with family on a few occasions and it was a pleasurable stay. The pool was not the best, but you're located right next to Waikiki Beach so it doesn't really matter! I also enjoyed that the hotel is located right next to the zoo. We had an amazing view of the ocean from our room... More

rayls96 - Mahalo for your kind review and for always choosing to return to the Queen Kapiolani hotel during your visits to Waikiki! Expect the same great service from our staff and even nicer accommodations after we complete our next major renovation. We hope you will visit us again soon! More

The hotel is well located at the end of the Waikiki strip opposite the Zoo and a short 2 min stroll to the beach. Our room was clean & well presented and the bed comfortable. A little stuffy as we're not fans of air conditioning. We had booked a shuttle to the shopping outlets and were disapointed that we missed... More

Three of us went to Honolulu from South America for the weekend, just to have some beers and do some sightseeing. We chose Queen Kapiolani as a budget hotel with a decent location. The locations was actually great, opposite the zoo and unhindered views to Diamond Head. We had 19th floor rooms, huge, spotless and with nice bathrooms. Staff were... More

The Queen Kapiolani Hotel was a good choice for us. Average room but the location was great. Close to the beach and the quiet end of Waikiki. A peaceful view over the zoo and adjacent park was nice. This hotel is on our list for the next visit to Waikiki. Bill k. Steamboat Springs Colorado.

I've been there with a friend of mine in November 2013. We found a good last minute deal for one week. The place is in a good position right in the touristic district of Honolulu, Waikiki beach is just a few steps away. Staff is friendly and willing to help. I would recommend to stay there although the real Hawaii... More

We stayed on the fourth floor. I think it was to close to ground level and we could hear traffic and street noise. We choose this hotel because of walking distance to Waikiki Beach and shopping. A little disappointed they didn't have a hot tub, and the lounge chairs around the pool could use some attention. The rooms were clean... More

We returned to this hotel for the third time in May. We like the QK for the location, the opening windows and the fact that it is clean and tidy. We don't spend endless hours in hotel room, so we are happy with a clean bed and bathroom. We were allocated a room on the 7th floor facing the pool... More
