We stayed four nights at the Lotus Honolulu and really enjoyed our experience. The location is excellent -- down the strip and away from the madness of Waikiki, but an easy 20 minute along the ocean into the "thick" of Waikiki fun. We had a corner suite with two balconies, with a view of Diamond Head to the left and... More

This was our second trip to Lotus this year. Once again we reserved the corner room up high with views of the ocean and Diamond Head. Everything was up to high standards. I got the flu and for two days stayed in the bed with a fever and I felt like I was in my own bed. Such a beautiful... More

What an absolutely wonderful hotel! It was everything we were looking for our first glimpse of Hawaii. It was a beautiful hotel on the inside. Our room was so clean and the views of Diamond Head and the ocean were amazing! The free wine was an unexpected delight. The employees were so accommodating. They provided maps, free water and ambiance.... More

This is a well-run boutique hotel located in a peaceful neighbourhood away from crowded central Waikiki, yet still within convenient walking distance. There is also a frequent complimentary shuttle service to the Ala Moana shopping centre. Our room was spacious and immaculately clean. However my wife and I found the staff manning the front desk temporarily absent on occasion. Our... More

Loved everything about this place - pay an extra $25 and get use of bikes and other amenities. Rooms are beautiful and spacious, plus a nice balcony to relax on. Yoga classes on some mornings, free wine happy hour from 4-6pm. Close enough to everything - if you rent a car there is street parking for the park ($0.25/hr meters... More

Great location for those not wanting to be in the bustle of Waikiki. At the end of the strip, past the zoo and at the base of Diamond Head. Far enough to feel like you are not downtown, yet an easy 15 minute walk into Waikiki. Great view of Diamond Head, but we expected more of a water view as... More

Our 1st impression of this hotel wasn't so great coming up to being dropped off at the entrance to check in.. It's a small distance away from the action & an older hotel or possible prior apartment that has been renovated. Be careful with additional charges when checking in.. We were explained about all the charges which we were then... More

My recent stay at the Lotus was my second experience there. The hotel's location, away from the crowds in Waikiki but close enough for an easy walk, with a view of Diamond Head and the ocean from most rooms, is perfect for guests who want the best of Hawaii's beaches and also proximity to the excellent restaurants, museums, and other...

This is a wonderful hotel. The people are very friendly and treat you like family. The location is great. Quiet, yet walking distance to the store and the busier part of town. I nice little secluded beach as well.
