Planning for a group meeting with rooms and meeting space. Every time I've called I've been transferred numerous times and told they don't have my reservation until I send them back my email confirmation. Haven't spoken to anyone yet that has been helpful! I'm not sure if they're under new management or what but they seriously need to get it... More

When we were picked up from the airport by the shuttle bus, the driver joked about it being in the middle of nowhere, I started to worry a bit, but it turns out that it was about 800m from the main a strip in Waikiki, and the hotel offers free rental bicycles, so it is no issue at all. The... More

I was looking forward to my stay at the Lotus based on some of the reviews I read here on trip advisor. Below are the pros and cons: Pros: Very quiet and peaceful we didn't hear anything at night to disturb us the whole week Friendly staff - everyone was always happy to help and there was never a line...

Best hotel in Honolulu ! We LOVED our room, we booked the diamond head premium room, and it was beautiful & spacious and had a great view of Diamond Head ! We truly couldn't have asked for more in a hotel, they offer free wine everyday I believe from 4pm-6pm, they make sure you have ice in your ice bucket... More

ok, state the ground rules: no beach, pool, or ocean views... the aqua lotus does offer nice diamond head views, views of waikiki beach from the walkway to your room. more importantly, it offers a nice small hotel with a great location (imho) - directly across from beautiful kapiolani park and about 100 feet from sans souci beach (a great...

We stayed for our honeymoon for 5 nights in the Ocean View Premium room on the 10th floor. The room was spacious and clean with good hardwood floors (a nice change from carpet given all the sand we brought in with us!) Our view was Diamond Head from one balcony and a partial view of the ocean from the other... More

We just spent last night at the Aqua Lotus hotel near Diamond Head. The room furniture was shabby, however it was clean. I guess I expected more for a $225/night accommodation. We had a peaceful evening and everything was fine. The issue that was slightly annoying was the surprise 'Boutique Fee' of $25 + tax per night. We booked the... More

Stayed at the hotel towards the end of september (25th to 30th) 2014. Booked for 5 nights and left early because this hotel is not equipped for a pleasure trip - didn't want to ruin our vacay by spending time at this hotel. Pros: Waikiki beach is just a few steps from the hotel and the hotel provides free beach... More

Easy check-in. Room was modern, great views from balcony, clean, small shower though. Location is away from hustle and bustle, so don't stay here if you want to be in the mix of Waikiki. Since it was a bit away from the more touristy part of town, there are less restaurants and amenities within walking distance. So close to the... More
