The Royal Kuhio is an older condo apartment, but is well maintained in a great location to Waikiki and the beach. This is one of the nicer one bedroom units that has very comfortable furnishings, a separate bedroom with two queens, plenty of closet space, air conditioning and a full kitchen, including dishwasher. Very secure building and parking lot. Everything worked well and was great. The air conditioner does a good job of masking the loud Saturday night/Sunday morning revelers partying at the bar next door. The free wifi and free parking is a real plus if you compare prices at other condos. Nice deck but only a city view. This was very reasonably priced including the cleaning fee and tax.
BUT this is Hawaii, so you will have cock roaches! This is a condo, so you will not have maid service of fresh linens replenished during your stay.! That's just a fact, but nice laundry facilities are available. Our one disappointment was that the pool was closed the entire nine days that we were there for refinishing. It looked clean, bright and inviting the day we left! When we complained to the condo owner, she was smart enough to just ignore our message since there was little that she could do.
Nicely decorated, homey atmosphere in a comfortable well-equipped apartment. Free wifi and free parking.
No pool available the week we were there. Traffic and party noise can be annoying.

Thank you for the comments. They help us in our continuing efforts to improve and meet or exceed guest satisfaction. The building has quarterly pest control services and we schedule professional services as needed between building services. However, we do recommend not leaving food on the tables, counters, etc. All our units are equipped with dishwashers, for which we supply detergent, so we recommend putting used dishes and utensils (after rinsing them) in the dishwasher and running it before leaving the apartment . Mahalo!
