Recently stayed for 11 nights at the Aqua Waikiki Wave Hotel. A very welcoming and friendly experience from our 11pm check-in to our 12 noon check-out. Kisha on reception is an absolute gem with her friendly attitude and local knowledge which she was only to happy to share. She never failed to wish us 'Aloha' and the hope that we were going to have a great day.
We stayed on the 7th floor on the Duke Lane side and did not have any problem with noise except for Friday and Saturday night when they have music and entertainment in the International Market but cotton wool in the ears blocked out any noise and we enjoyed good sleep on the very comfortable beds. The bed linen was fresh and was changed 3 times in the short time we stayed by the very friendly housekeeping staff. Plenty of hot water in the shower - no matter what time of day. The lifts have been upgraded and the longest time we had to wait was approx. 2-3 mins at the busiest time of the day. Had a blocked toilet one day (not our fault) and the maintenance guy arrived only 5 mins after a phone call. Problem solved immediately and efficiently.
A great bakery only 3 doors along for light breakfasts, lunches etc and with the International Market just behind the hotel its in a great location for food.
To sum up, the hotel is a little tired in places but the great staff more than make up for any deficiencies. I would definitely recommend this hotel to budget travellers who want a great location and friendly, efficient staff.
