After reading previous trip advisor reviews we requested an upper level room. We were on the 11th floor street and this was great. Very limited street noise and our toddler had no trouble with day time sleeps. Short walk to the beach and shops. All staff very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and fresh. The bus stop was... More

The service at this Hotel is amazing. The staff are gracious, patient & friendly and always approachable. No question was every a problem. The only flaw was the rooms. The Air Con was extremely loud and in our sons room it leaked. The fridge had no water jug for cold water and the kitchenette no kettle, or 'hot pot' as... More

Great location. Unfortunately we had a street facing room on the 5th floor and it was very noisy. Lots of street noise so you couldn't enjoy the balcony day or night. The air conditioning units in both rooms were also very noisy so you couldn't have them on at night. The Lovin' Oven pizza was excellent as was most of... More

Aloha Julie Q, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback of the Aqua Bamboo Waikiki. I apologize that you were disturbed by the noise from the street and the window-style air conditioning units. Traffic noise can be a challenge, as we are located on one of the main avenues in Waikiki. For a quieter room, I’d recommend... More

This older hotel has only 12 floors, making it more welcome, attentive, and easy to get in and out of than a plain, overcrowded high-rise hotel. The decor and furnishings are perfectly adorned with bamboo and tropical plants. The room had plumeria blooms tucked in many places, which gave a very appreciated touch. The outdoor pool and garden area was... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Bamboo. The hotel is in a great location. Room was clean and had good amenities. It is an easy 2 minute walk to beach, cafes, restaurants and the busy centre of Waikiki. We had a tour booked - the tour pick ups are at the Sheraton which is a 1 minute walk. I would... More

We had a room with a fully equipped kitchen with two balconies, one with a sideview and the other poolside. It is centrally located near the beach, luxury row (shopping), and the zoo. There is also public transportation that will also take you anywhere you need to go. We had a late flight and for a reasonable fee we were... More

When I arrived, I found that the room was nice, but overlooked a service area in the building right next door. I asked if another room was available - I was given a much upgraded suite. There was no problem and the front desk clerk was very amenable. The room overlooked Kuhio. It was noisy because Waikiki is noisy and... More
