“Three week stay March and April 2013”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We came to the Waikiki Pearl to move from our original accommodation plan.Our over all experience was very positive with a few minor exceptions.

The staff on the front desk,Harry on days and the night representatives were quick efficient and direct even when they were not able to do all we asked. They were always happy and pleasant.

The cleaning were flexible and saw that our room was proper.Louellen and the staff treated us well.
The location is in central Waikiki with a very active night life which added to the night time and morning noise.These issues are beyond the control of the management and staff.
If you wish 24 hour silence another area of the city might be more appropriate. On the other hand if you want to be in a secure place in the close to everything that makes Waikiki a place to be, at a reasonable price, the Aqua Waikiki Pearl, is worth a serious look..

Room Tip: No restaurant or pool!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

I was travelling alone and with a mobility scooter, and found this hotel perfect for me. It was easy to get to and from my room with the scooter and I found the staff very helpful. My room was large with a fridge and microwave which was great. It is in a great position, close to everything- International Marketplace, Starbucks, Dennys, Food Pantry (supermarket) as well as public transport and shops and beach. The airconditioner was noisy but I just turned it off because the weather wasn't too hot. There was a bit of noise from other guests running excitedly along the corridor but that was fine too! I found all the staff really helpful and enjoyed the breakfast and afternoon snacks(if i was there at those times) provided in the foyer. I really enjoyed my stay and thought it was great value for money - I would definitely stay there again.

Pros:
Spacious room. Comfortable beds. Maid service was very good. Location - 1 block away from the Food Pantry and few other good restaurants. Just a 5 minute walk to waikiki beach. Major bus stop 1 min down the street on Kuhio. Friendly and helpful desk clerks. Internet (wi-fi) was O.K. and the speed was reasonable.

Cons:
The A/C was a bit louder then I would prefer. View from hotel room is either facing parking lot or the street with another hotel. You will probably end by closing curtains as you don't want to be watched.

The main problem is noise. If you are sensitive to loud sounds at night, stay away from this hotel. Soundproofing is definitely required!

Conclusion: We got very good price (100$/night) so I shouldn't be complaining too much. If you don't plan to stay a lot at hotel room than and You're not a light sleeper than it's a definite go. Otherwise try other option.

Very friendly staff, checked us in very early in the morning after a long flight from New Zealand. Good location near Waikiki beach, International market place and restaurants. The room was clean, no view and no pool. Coffee and muffins every morning. We found a special on the net, so it was reasonable for this location.

I'd still classify this hotel as 3 stars, but one of the better ones I've stayed in. Primarily because we found the customer service exceptional. Front desk were very helpful and super friendly. We were upgraded to a bigger room with king, but we didn't have a private balcony. Who cares? We were in a very clean room that had been updated, with a comfy king bed and plenty of room for our portable crib for keiki. Continental breakfast was very basic, I'd opt for eating out, but again, overall I'm was really satisfied with the value. If you're looking for budget, look no further.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from "party scene". We didn't have any problems with noise, but I noti...

This is a good value hotel in a great central location. It is not on Waikiki beach and has no pool and is well priced accordingly.
It is a short walk to the beach and to everything else.
The staff were excellent and the rooms were clean and spacious
On the down side, the room air conditioners need to be upgraded to newer more silent split systems. The current ones are noisy and in efficient.
As with any good hotel, the staff make the difference and they were extremely helpful and Mac, the Concierge was great.
