The location is awesome. One block from the world famous waikiki beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A lot of restaurants and stores are walking distance from the hotel. Free Wi-Fi in a room. I will probably stay the waikiki Prince hotel next time I travel to Honolulu. Highly recommended if you are looking for a best value...

This is a basic older hotel. We were quite comfortable here. There is the usual Honolulu traffic noise, but that is to be expected. We stayed on the 3rd floor and though the rooms are small, they are complete with 2 burners (no oven), a microwave, toaster oven, and an apartment size refrigerator. Dishes, pots,skillets, and utensils are included. The...

My daughter and I stayed there in September, and had a wonderful time! The staff was friendly and helpful, and were more than happy to suggest places to visit, and how to get there. It was so close to the beach, and walking distance to a LOT of local restaurants - some just across the street, and the food was...

Just back from Hawaii. Our holiday was filled with day tours, shopping, and hitting the beach. This hotel was just great. It is one block from Waikiki beach. Shops and transport are close & in walking distance. The room was clean ,comfortable, with a kitchenette which was very handy. (Convenience stores were a two minute walk away for basic items...

We chose this for its central location, preferring it over the numerous high rise accommodations. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It's great to have a kitchenette. The unit is old but very clean with comfortable beds and efficient air-conditioning. We will go there again when we return to Honolulu.

If you require spacious, elaborately luxurious rooms, ornate lobby surrounded by "objects d' arte", bellmen running everywhere and on-premises expensive dining choices, this is not the place for you, period. If you consider saving money to be a virtue, consider this: Waikiki Prince Hotel offers a scrupulously clean place to stay within barely a hundred yards from the Waikiki beach...

The hotel was clean although the little kitchen area is really showing it's age. It was just a short walk to Waikiki Beach and many,many restaurants. This is a great inexpensive way to travel to Hawaii. They did not nickel and dime you like some of the resorts. The staff was very pleasant and it is a secure hotel as...

The Waikiki Prince is in my opinion very good as far as Budget Hotel accomodation goes. The rooms are comfortable and clean. For me though,the most appealing feature of The Waikiki Prince is the Hotels close proximity to the Waikiki Beachfront and tourist strip.the room is outdated ceiling paint and skirting board is peeling kitchen appliances are really old but...

Waikiki Prince Hotel is a solid value in the heart of Waikiki, a block from the beach, and surprisingly quiet for its location. As a base for exploring O'ahu it would be hard to beat for the price. Superb.

We liked the location of Waikiki Prince. Few minutes of walk to Waikiki Beach, shops, restaurants and tour bus stop. That's why we shall stay there on our way back. The staff have been courteous and helpful. It's an old-looking place but clean.
