Have just come back from a girls week away with my Mother and Sister. I was pleasantly surprised by how lovely this hotel was. We were upgraded to a suite with a large balcony and ended up with two double beds. Check in was at 3pm and our flight arrived at 6am! By 12pm we got a phone call to...

A small hotel in Waikiki that offers a quiet environment and well situated. Close by, you have the only grocery store on Waikiki. A good thing considering that I had a kitchenette in my room. The bed was very comfortable. The closet offered spacious space and the kitchenette was fully equipped. I had a view on their nice pool that...

Currently staying at aqua bamboo. I find it conveniently located for all our tours, restaurants, and walking distance to the beach. I like that I can take one elevator to go from my room to the parking garage which is below the hotel. Staff seems friendly and the rooms are clean. It has everything advertised. I am very happy, still...

My wife and I stayed here for part of our honeymoon in September 2016.

This hotel was great! I wasn't expecting too much since the price was so reasonable but I was blown away! It was very close to the beach, about a 5 minute walk.

We got to the hotel past midnight and we were told we'd be in Room 309. I had asked my travel agent to request a higher floor since there was supposed to be some construction going on. The front desk fellow, who was definitely gruff, said that my travel agent didn't make the request and that there were no other...

This hotel tries to be a designer hotel. It is not as the room and lobby have strange and terrible smells; probably backed up toilet sewage. Read other Poor and Terrible reviews First.
