We stayed at the Lotus for 5 nights. We had a corner room on the 7th floor. The view was ok overlooking a carpark and a ppep of the ocean on one side and a nice view of Diamond head from the other. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The location is in a relatively quite part of... More

Our plans to stay in Kona, HI changed due to hurricane Madaline. Instead stayed those days in Honolulu. Booked our room last minute. The view from the room was beautiful with views of both Diamond Head and the Ocean. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful! We took advantage of the beach towels and chairs, the beach being just steps... More

For the size, this hotel has full and professional service. It is in an ideal location for work and play. We have been partnering with the Lotus for years and would not want to be anywhere else. It feels like a home away from home. Best on Oahu for comfort and ease.

The Lotus hotel is small and a few miles from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. This gives it a quiet and restful feel. The rooms are large, airy and clean. Excellent beds Bathrooms even without a bath are generous. The rooms and hotel is quiet. Perfect for a holiday. Two minutes to the beach

We had the most amazing experience at this hotel. They were so nice and accommodating. And the hotel is located in a great location, next to the park, zoo, aquarium and a great little beach for the kids. We will definitely be back.

We were only in Oahu for 1 1/2 days before heading out to other islands. We had a huge list of things we want to do on Oahu, so we knew we weren't going to be hanging by a pool. This hotel is really nice because it has free parking (within the $25 boutique fee- which is much cheaper than... More

At first, the hotel did seem a bit dated from the outside compared to other hotels nearby. But the rooms were very modern compared to their other hotels and resorts which consisted of very dated rooms. The staff was nice. The hotel also offered amenities such as rental bikes, complimentary movies, a shuttle, an in-room massage, and beach chairs. Would... More
