We were referred to the Aqua Bamboo by a B&B operator. We were hopeful our budget could afford a good 3 star hotel.(less than $200/nt). We had a small room with a kitchenette that was clean. We were 2 blocks from Waikiki beach and in the middle of all the action. The staff were young, helpful and tried hard and... More

This hotel is not overly clean, the bathroom is very outdated, and the continental breakfast was terrible. They have very limited parking and you will most likely be required to park in the ramp next door for $25 a night. It is close to downtown and Waikiki beach making it convenient for activities in the area. Traffic can be bad... More

If you're looking for reasonably priced, a few blocks from the beach and not terribly clean... this is your spot! The staff (depending on the day) was semi friendly. The noise from the surrounding streets (regardless of time of day or floor you're on) is annoying! I was surprised to learn they do not perform room service daily (meaning your... More

We were booked here for business travel and because I was unfamiliar with the hotel I was sceptical. I would describe this hotel more of a boutique style. Breakfast was fresh and good. Though small, it was reasonably priced and comfortable. Close to beach and shopping. Staff very friendly. We would recommend it.

All the streets are busy in Waikiki but once you are in your room, and especially if you have a room looking over the pool, you've found a quiet oasis. The courtyard was a quiet relaxing place to get away from the hustle of the city and you are just a couple of blocks from the main shopping street. You... More

I make myself crazy attempting to find the 'perfect' hotel when I travel. I scour websites, read reviews, and altogether spend way too much time. I didn't want to spend too much, Waikiki can be uber expensive. Aqua Bamboo turned out to be perfect for my needs. I had a lovely studio that faced the inside courtyard, was very clean.... More

The Aqua Bamboo is the ideal place on Oahu as a base for your Hawaii vacation. Located a short walk from Waikiki beach the Aqua Bamboo has all the amenities you could want and more. Our room had a stove top, microwave and refrigerator so we could avoid having to eat out for breakfast and many dinners. A grocery store... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 8 night stay at the Aqua Bamboo for our honeymoon. We were upgraded to a partial ocean view room overlooking the courtyard. The room provided everything we needed (we got a kitchenette room) and was clean and tidy. The air conditioner was noisy but we didn't have it going at night. The staff were super helpful... More

We stayed at this hotel for 8 nights in October. The location is superb, 2 minute walk to Waikiki beach without being right in the hustle and bustle. The room was well appointed with a separate bedroom and self contained kitchen which we used a lot. Only fault was the air conditioning was very loud but earplugs fixed that. Staff... More
