“Small room but clean and convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

The room was very clean, smelled fresh, the beds were nice, pillows a little flat and hard but other than that not bad. Balcony looking at Waikiki beach, desk and chair, wifi, flat screen t.v, refrigerator, safe. The room was small but bright colors and amenities didn't make it seem too small. A bit noisy at night, being right on Kalakaua Blvd. but great location. Close to good restaurants and shopping. Restaurant in the lobby, ABC next door. Nice, friendly staff. Parking is limited. I'd stay again

Room Tip: I got the ocean view which did overlook Waikiki. They say all rooms have a view but I don't know...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We stayed at Waikiki Circle for 4 nights in july 2012. Our room was on the seventh floor and had a partial seaview over Waikiki beach. The room was very small but nice, the bathroom was newly renovated I think. We didn't spend so much time at the hotel but they have a nice free movie/games-rental services if you like to spend the time inside. Each room have a playstation! =)

The location is perfect since you just go right outside and cross the street to get to the crowed Waikiki beach. Right next to the hotel you have Eggs n things and each day the line is loooong to get breakfast/lunch/dinner there. Hotel guests have a discount.

The staff was friendly and guests can borrow beach towels each day. To the right of the elevators you have a tourist agency that helped us book a helicopter trip over Oahu.

My daughter and I stayed at the Aston Circle the week of Thanksgiving. The view from the balcony was amazing!! It is a great location - close to the beach, shopping, restaurants! I would definitely stay there again. The location and price make it the perfect choice!

Though the room was small, it was comfortable and not claustrophobic. Beds were nice, pillows a bit hard and thin. Shower only, no tub. Balcony was nice, view of Waikiki Beach across the street. Nice size flat screen t.v. bright colorful decor. Desk, refrigeraton and safe included. Ther is a $10.00 resort fee per day and a $15.00 parking fee. Ice is downstairs. I liked the room, was convenient to good restaurants, shopping and the beach. A bit noisy at night from Kalakaua Ave but I'd stay there again. Good value.

Room Tip: All rooms are supposed to have some ocean view, I got upgraded to the ocean view so can't say wh...

This is one funky establishment! If you want something that combines retro architecture with old school rooms and a view of the Pacific that will make you see new shades of blue and turquoise that heretofore you have never witnessed, this is your one-stop time machine. The only thing that's missing here are Ozzie and Harriet. Oh, by the way, the price is old school as well; such a deal!

Rooms are just as you see them in the traveler photos...small, quirky, and with a shower that is okay for little people such as my wife and myself, but a nightmare for offensive linemen and amazons.

The front desk people were very friendly and helpful with everything and will bend their palm trees over backwards to help you with directions, restaurant suggestions, and just about any of the 'ins and outs' of Waikiki.

Many of the Waikiki Circle reviews talk about the location; it is spectacular. I cannot even fathom that there is a place that is more appropriately placed within a five minute walk of just about anything that matters. (I chuckle when I see the reviews about the Aston Waikiki Circle being close to an ABC Store....what isn't? Throw a rock in the air with your eyes closed and you will hit an ABC Store. They are everywhere!).

First trip to Waikiki? Want an ocean view? On a budget? This is the place.

Room Tip: "Ocean view or ocean front. If not, keep searching."

Aston Circle was good value for money .. we stayed at a different hotel the 1st week of our hawaiian trip and then checked into Aston Circle. We have passed the hotel and didnt think much about the front lobby and the big queue at the restaurant in front . We hoped it would be as good and the Circle didnt disappoint. True, the room was small but you are out for most of the day either at the beach or doing some other activity at another part of the island. It was clean and that was a big plus for me. We booked the ocean view and it was amazing and relaxing just checking out the waves in the morning to sitting on the balcony come 5pm to enjoy the sunset. I would stay at the Circle again.

Room Tip: choose a higher floor with an ocean view

My family and I stayed at the Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel Nov 12 - 24, 2012. Check in was easy & quick. Staff where always friendly, helpful & doing their job well.
We shared a small room with 2 beds. We travelled with our two small children. One the negative side our room was very tiny - located on the side of the hotel, 3rd floor. We were above the garbage bins. I found it loud in the morning. A few times the crashing sound of the garbage truck would wake me up. Our toilet backed up 3 times for no apparent reason. Each time they would quickly fix the issue. The shower was very small and designed in a odd shape. This made showing the children annoying. My husband is 5'11 and his feet hung off the edge of the bed, so while they seemed like "full" beds I think they were a bit on the small side. The air con was very old and loud. Next time we are trying another hotel. All in all its a 3 star with a great location.

Room Tip: Pick a higher room at the front of the hotel.
