This hotel is the most nastiest place I have ever set foot in. From the smelly rooms, to the old smelly furniture, to the crack heads hanging out in the hotel whenever is the worst accommodations ever. I was so disgusted by this place that I walked most of the night to avoid going to the room. The host two...

Stayed for the night. Always stay here while in Waikiki which is about every 3 months. Love the staff and have never once had an issue with the room. Easy walk to Ala Moana Shopping Center and trolley stops right at the main door.

Just spent 5 nights at Aqua Palms, my third trip to Waikiki and first at the Aqua. My cousin who is a native recommended it and I checked out the reviews on Tripadvisor. There are some mixed reviews, but my stay was fantastic. Location was great, also great room with king size bed, large TV, refrigerator, microwave, desk, real closet,...

It is convenient to the beach, and close to the Ala Moana Center. It is clean and, also quiet if you stay in a city-view room. This was my fourth time staying in this hotel. The front desk used to be very nice and helpful for the past three times, unfortunately, this time I ran into someone new and they...

Great value! I had a conference at the Hilton Hawaiian Village across the street, and the Aqua Palms was a convenient budget option. We stayed in a city view room with a king sized bed. All the rooms have a lanai, fridge, and microwave. The daily $18 resort fee includes wifi, towels and a Waikiki shuttle (compared to the $35...

This was our first one week stop on a one month tour of Hawaii. The hotel has around 262 rooms, most with a balcony, good sized bathroom with tub and shower, include a microwave, flatscreen tv, small fridge, coffee maker, safe, and free wifi. In the lobby there is a business centre and you can get fresh free coffee and...

We were even more impressed than last year! Great staff!! Older place,but so convenient to everything,and even a free shuttle! Just a short hop...

It is 10 min walk to convention center and to the beach and 15 min to Waikiki busy center and in front of the Hilton.The view is decent from the front apartments. The 2 queen bed apartment is small, the one with a king bed and sofa bed is bigger but the sofa bed not very comfortable. The building is...

Unfortunately we had to ask for a change of,room. Room 1026 had the constant noise of the elevator shaft and should not be used for guests. We changed rooms in our pyjamas! Much quieter but no balcony which was disappointing. A friend left 2 phone messages on 1026 but they were not transferred to the new room. Needs some updating...

Although not at the beach, location was OK for the daily rate. No restaurant, but connected with IHOP next door and others close too, and rooms were clean as were linens & towels. This is an average, older hotel with decent staff to assist your needs. (But we both thought that floors are leaning a bit...?) Not unsafe, but peculiar...
