I am firstly, very surprised at all off the good reviews on this hotel, and makes me think that we possibly had a one off bad room?? We are a couple of 'down and dirty' travellers and spend little time in the hotel rooms when we travel. We had been to some nice hotels on the other four islands, and... More

I choose this hotel for my family based on the proximity to the beach (one block), price, and no resort fees (free wifi). I booked a Diamondhead view room but I was "upgraded" to a beach-view room, but I saw both. This hotel is dated. The lobby and staff are fine, but our room on the 10th floor was showing... More

So I booked this Hotel on my way to Australia and had never been there. The place was clean, less expensive then some, with great views of Diamond Head and Ocean. Short walk to beach where I watched the sunset. The staff was pretty helpful and accommodating. Had breakfast in restaurant little disappointed in buffet, which I typically avoid like... More

Many tourists come to Waikiki to experience the surf and to work on their tan, but at the Queen Kapiolani Hotel the guests may also be fortunate enough to get a deeper understanding of how Hawai’i became what it is today. Twice a week, the General Manager Ron Kikumoto holds a very interesting presentation in the hotel lobby about the... More

As luck would have it we stayed as two hurricanes were bearing down on the islands. The staff was amazing and kept us informed at all times. We had a beautiful view of Diamond Head and the city. The location to the beach, zoo, buses, and restaurants was fantastic! I highly recommend that you visit the convenience store in the... More

We stayed at QK in August (we stayed here in 2011 too). We were given a spacious room (I think they put a single bed in these rooms for 'family' use which would then make it a bit tight) with a city view. In reality this means that you can only see other hotels but since we weren't planning on... More

We booked this based on location and price. It was at the cheaper end of the range price range and still in a reasonable location. To be honest - I wish that we had paid a bit more and got something a bit more upmarket. The rooms were older style and just ok. The airconditioner was noisy and the windows... More
