My stay here was quite memorable. As a middle-aged female traveling solo, my only request was to be on an upper floor. I was pleasantly surprised to be upgraded, at no extra charge, to the top floor (there are only 3) with a kitchenette and pool view. My room, though not so new, was clean and my bed was very comfortable. I felt very safe here; doors in lobby were locked every night at 10pm. Security patrol at night. Staff (Christie Anne, Jason and my house keeping lady (sorry forgot her name) were very friendly and went out of their way to help if there were concerns or problems with ANYTHING; assist, make phone calls, book a tour - you name it. The hotel is hidden down a side street off of Kuhio, one of the main drags. But, not to worry - everything is at your finger tips: Food Pantry, Starbucks, restaurants, International Market only a few steps away. Waikiki Beach (and the police station) less than a 10 minute walk. Lots to see and do, if you want, or don't want. Some afternoons I spent around the pool - it was always so peaceful there. A private oasis away from the crowds. I would recommend this hotel to any traveler that enjoys quiet time away from all the excitement and hustle bustle. Ideal for anyone traveling solo, families, couples. If you are looking for a friendly atmosphere, sprinkled with down home charm, no frills, you've come to the right place. I am looking forward to coming back!
