We had a wonderful 4-night stay at Lotus. Christineann and Jessica greet you with Hawaiian hospitality. They treat their guests, as if you were staying in their home. They are the best! It's a small boutique hotel in a great location. The rooms are very quiet, clean and comfortable. In our room, we had Illy espresso machine, mini frig and microwave, a nice amenity to have in your room. Your stay includes: free parking, beach towels, chairs and bikes. The housekeeping staff (Lita, Mari, MariLou, Mila and Rose Marie) always greet you with aloha smile. They only clean every two days due to Covid. You can ask for extra towels and amenities without hesitation. The beach is a located across the parking lot with easy access. It's a small beach, perfect for our needs. We enjoyed our stay here and definitely we'll be back. Mahalo to Christieann and Jessica!

Hotel's Favorite
After extensive research about hotels in Honolulu, I decided on the Lotus for our first vacation trip since the beginning of the pandemic. The Lotus experience surpassed all my expectations. What a fabulous location, steps away from two beaches, a world-class French restaurant, Ily coffee and Italian espresso maker in the room, fancy and convenient beach chairs and luxurious towels for the beach days. We walked everyday to the Barefoot Beach cafe nearby, the most scrumptious local restaurant open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with live music, ever! Walking 15 minutes more through the gorgeous park with lush trees and families having picnics, you get to the craziness, tourist-drenched Waikiki. What also makes the Lotus unique is its staff: Jessica (the fantastic Jessica, what glowing energy!), Christie (high beautiful vibe), Lita, Mari, Marilou, Zee, Rogie, Lester, George, Mila! Thank you for having us! I will come back to stay with you, no other hotel in Honolulu.

This hotel does not have a lot of amenities - very limited restaurant hours, no gift shop, gym or pool but it is a 5 minute walk to a quiet stretch of the beach ( ask for beach towel and/ or beach chair at the front desk), lots of bathroom counter space, roomy balconies with tables and chairs, AND Illy espresso- making machines in the rooms. Be aware that the "partial beach view" is really no beach view at all but waking up to the sun rising behind Diamond Head is amazing. Great location for runners. There's a very reasonably-priced convenience store right next door at the Lahaina hotel. Rooms are refreshingly non- generic. Beds a bit soft.

Everyone was so friendly and treat you like family. Upgrade for a beautiful view away from crowds but close enough to walk or use complimentary bikes to downtown area. I even road to the Diamond head crater. Beautiful bird song every morning, sunrise and sunset. Special shout outs to Christieann, Zee and Jessica and Miss Lita

I cancelled my booking with Lotus due to Covid and not travelling. They had already taken $450 from my credit card. They had the money for 2 weeks before refunding. I ended up out of pocket as I had to pay a currency conversion fee. This was a free cancellation booking. They refuse to pay my currency fee of $20
