We booked this hotel at peak season and paid about $350/night from Dec. 26-30. Nice room, great service. We got a roll away bed which was quite comfortable not the cot type which gave you an achy back next morning.

We picked this hotel again because it is not in the Waikiki frenzy, yet a nice 20 minute walk there if you really have to go. Kapiolani Park separates it from Waikiki Beach. It's a boutique hotel near Diamond Head, with a truly versatile small staff, each of whom can pick up another's job if necessary. There's no restaurant, but... More

Nice staff and location- rooms large and comfortable- beach access and chairs and bikes nice amenities. Lower floors not great views, otherwise super! Boutique hotel with good vibe, but not super luxurious, if that's what your looking for.

Very clean and nice boutique hotel. Thoughtfully laid out interior, California king sized bed, and attentive & personal staff made this a great place to escape. Close to the beach & the downtown area ( but not too close), and across the street from a lovely park.

The Lotus is a charming boutique hotel at the far end of Waikiki, a stone's throw from Diamond Head. What it lacks in amenities, it makes up via the pretty, recently renovated rooms and the friendly staff and great service. It's not a cheap place to stay but we don't feel our money was wasted. This hotel is a good... More

o view of the ocean ). If you are looking for a low key vibe in a great location out of the hussle and bussle of Wikiki then this is a great budget friendly option. We would definitely stay here again!

We had a very pleasant stay at Lotus Honolulu at Diamond Head. We liked that the hotel was removed from the main Waikiki drag -- it felt like a real refuge and a place to relax. We also loved that there was a happy hour from 4-6pm. Overall the service was excellent. We felt very well taken care of. There... More

The bed was too soft, the pillows too large and firm, the one and only elevator too slow, and the bar and restaurant never opened. There is no pool and no fitness facilities. And yet....... The full view of Diamond Head's iconic west side and the view between condos to the ocean, both as seen from the large balcony of... More

We liked this Hotel as the destination was very quiet but those looking for better facilities with regard to shopping and dining are advised to be closer to town. Our room was nicely furnished with a modern contemporary style, all important items provided including scales which while on holiday is not such a good idea. A very limited breakfast but... More

What a great boutique hotel located away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki yet 15 minute walk to the center of Waikiki. Beautiful and clean decor this is a true gem in Honolulu. If you want a great experience, I highly recommend this hotel.
