“stopover”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

We had a couple of days enroute home from usa to nz and stayed in this hotel. The welcome by staff was efficient and very helpful. We had bookrd a room with kitchen facilities and it was very adequate for our purpses. The room was a bit small, but clean though it did have a musty smell when we first entered. We thougt this hotel provided good value for money and its location was extremely good for a short stopover.

We have been to hawaii 4 times and although the other hotels were nice this hotel is the only one I would recommend. Like most things it's the little things that make the difference, like free wifi in the room, free coffe in the lobby free use of beach towels. A pool that isn't square and boring but has a waterfall and a Jacuzzi.

Room Tip: Low levels on the street side can be noisey

We rented a 1 bedroom suite for 4 blissful night's and we both enjoyed every second of it. I am from Ewa Beach, Hawaii and my Wife and I had made a commitment that we would love to stay at The Aqua Bamboo Waikiki for our yearly marriage anniversary! Lots of Love and Aloha Spirit. The Hotel check-in went smooth and The check-out went quickly, the only flaw about this is that it ended to soon for myself and my wife had to get back to the hustle and bustle of reality.

We had a wonderful trip. The staff are great and were helpful with questions on activities and places to visit. The courtyard is serene, tranquil and above all it was like being home away from home. We plan to stay at Aqua Bamboo on our next visit.

Thank you,

We rented a one-bedroom suite in the hotel for a week and were very happy with our experience. The suite was just big enough for my husband, two teenager daughters, and I to be comfortable. The kitchenette was a great asset. The hotel lobby and gardens have a lot of nice touches, including some lovely buddhas and a picturesque pavillion amongst the palm trees. The location was such that we were very central, but it was still an escape from the rush of traffic and tourists.

The Bamboozled event on Thursday night was wonderful, with the chance to listen to a musician singing and playing his ukelele as well as to make leis.

We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Next time, we might prefer to rent rooms on the garden side to get away from the traffic noise, but...

This was our fourth visit to Oahu and we always stay at the Aqua Bamboo. We would not stay anywhere else. The location is perfect, the staff are excellent, friendly and takes good care of you, The rooms are clean and comfortable which makes for a relaxing stay. We love the peace and quiet you can nave in the middle of the city. We love it and will be back

Room Tip: We love the upper courtyard rooms.

Had a great vacation and good times at the Aqua Bamboo Hotel in Honolulu. The staff and location were excellent. We has stayed at the Aqua Bamboo before and they have upgraded the rooms. The pool and hot tub were refreshing. Located in the middle of all of the activities in Waikiki, I strongly recommend this hotel. The staff were on top of everything and were very helpful during our 1 week stay. Check in was quick and smooth. Check out took 1 minute. Love that the hotel is smaller and not overcrowded. My family and I will stay here again on out next trip to Waikiki.
