When we arrived we were lucky to be upgraded to a corner unit on the 41st floor with panoramic views, separate bedroom and lounge and kitchen, as this is our third time at the Aqua Skyline so we knew that we were close to the beach, shops and bars but not too close to the noise. I can't really think... More

I've stayed at Aqua Skyline before and the staff is always accommodating and fun. This is the go to spot for when we need a night out and don't wanna drive home. The room was clean and beds comfy. Can't beat the pool and jaccuzi. Will be back once again. Me and I think his name is Steve are awesome!!

We stayed for 7 nights and thought that this place was pretty good as it had everything we needed including a little kitchen which was great as it meant we didn't have to go out for every meal and the balcony had a nice view to enjoy our meals on. The bed was massive and comfortable as well. My only... More

DISGUSTING hotel. More like a rat infested hostel. Dirty room, sheets and bed bugs, mould in every corner, staff was most unpleasant and unhelpful, could not sleep here due to unsanitary conditions. Would not recommend at all. Would suggest staying anywhere but here. Photo online are deceiving. I have travelled the world and have never encountered such an unsanitary place.... More

We stayed here for five nights in September. Free upgrade to a panoramic city view room was nice. Room was a little dated but considering this, it was in great shape! One nice change would be having an additional a/c unit...the bedroom one didn't do anything for the sitting room/kitchenette area. Hotel was very clean and so quiet! We felt... More

Booked through Air BnB, unfortunately lack of communication with host meant check in and check out wasn't great so no fault of the actual Hotel itself. Security was good and concierge was really friendly. Facilities well maintained and our room was ok for us. Air con noisy though and a lot of street noise too but I guess you get... More

On our second night here we woke up at 4am to a fire alarm and an emergency announcement telling us to leave the building using stairs. We stayed on the 15th floor so it took a while to get down (but others had it about 30 stories worse than us). Once in front of the building the hotel staff told... More

First the Good News: Great location, conveniently located a few blocks from Waikiki Beach and walking distance to clubs and shopping. I was on the 39th floor in a Kitchenette studio lodging with a wonderful view of the Ala Moana Golf course to my left, Diamond Head straight ahead and Waikiki Beach to the my right! The guest pool and... More
