“Amazing views and great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

Hotel is small (in a nice way) and staff are efficient. We had a full ocean view room which is more expensive but totally worth it. Rooms are quite small but very clean and cute! If you are on the larger side I would recommend going elsewhere as the bathrooms are tight (and I'm not a big person). The location is great- right on the beach in the middle of Waikiki. If you don't like the hustle bustle of a touristy area then don't stay in the heart of Waikiki as it can be a little noisy but we loved it. We would definitely return to this hotel :)

I loved this hotel. Nothing fancy really, not even a real lobby, but rooms were clean and comfy and staff was great! Best thing is views and price for that view and awesome location. Every room has a view and I have paid a lot more for views over parking lots. Location is fantastic! Beach is right there as is everything else. We had a car and went all over Oahu. Parking is 15 a day, very good for Waikiki. Staff was great and very responsive. No frills but aren't missed.

Room Tip: You don't need to pay extra for ocean front, but ask for" ocean view" which is great a...

The Waikiki circle hotel is great value for the beachfront location and a short stroll to some great shopping!
The room decor is very welcoming and was a good size for us travelling as a couple. The bathroom is a little small and the air con is a little noisy but it didnt affect our stay at all.
We had a fantastic view of the beach and up the street from the balcony. Not advisable to leave anything on the balcony as it is very windy. Street noise was not an issue to us up on the 5th floor.
The hotel was clean and comfortable, would definitely stay there again!

This is a very different experience. You can take an elevator from your room, walk down a ramp or steps and you are ready to cross the street to one of the best parts of the Waikiki beach. The rooms were refurbished last year and are clean and pleasant with everything working. There is no lobby, looks like you are going to a movie by just going up to the window.
Stayed last year for a week and prices were a little over $100 per night. With nothing improved or changed we paid about $165 per night this year. Part of that is a $15 per day charge for safe, etc. I think in addition it is either $15 or $25 more for parking. This is for a city view room. Last year we had been comped a ocean view and the view was probably as good as any in that area. I think that has risen to $250 or more per night. If prices rise any more we would not stay there again in spite of location, location, location.

Room Tip: If you want to be across from the beach area, it is a wonderful area of Wakiki. City view faces ano...

Great location if you want the hustle and bustle of Waikiki Beach. The room decor is really cute. The rooms are tiny, though. I was one of three adults in one room and it was fine for one night but we couldn't have stayed much longer than that without stepping on each other's toes. But for a couple, it would probably be fine. The parking is difficult if you have something larger than a compact car.

The room was extremely small and the bathroom was definitely comparable to a Motel 6. The view is from outside the room and the elevators were confusing. Good note was the breakfast. We only stayed one night, but I would have been extremely upset if we had booked several days.

Aloha BluesTraveler675,

Unfortunately I believe your review may have found it's way to our page in error. The Waikiki Circle Hotel does not offer breakfast and has a very simple elevator setup.

Mahalo for choosing Hawaii as your vacation destination!

We got tempted by the location directly on Waikiki beach and the relatively moderate price. The view from the balcony is great, but you cannot really sit there, as it is too windy most of the times and too noisy from the surrounding hotels. At night we tried the air-con, but that was even noisier then the sounds from outside. We did not know that the room rate quoted did not include service charge and tax (our fault, we did not read carefully) and an amenity fee, which you have to pay in any case, whether you use internet, DVD and coffee maker or not.
