Stayed in this hotel for two days and two nights.
Their room have great quality, and very much cleaned.
I would prefer friends and family about this hotel. The house cleaner Rowena, Eliza and Pedro are good workers and very friendly workers. I can't really say anything bad about the workers in aqua.

Stayed at this hotel for one night and had to move. If we didnt have a late check in we wouldn't have even stayed one night. The hotel is grossly dirty, the room has stained everything, floors , walls , duvet, worn out stained bath tub. The neighborhood is scary at night my wife and I felt we had to hide our wedding bands when we went out for a late night snack due to our 11pm check in. The neighbour hood is littered with young drunk kids and vagrants. In fact when we checked in the kid at the front desk bragged about a bar fight we just missed at the bar that is attached to the hotel. The street noise we could hear when we were in our room was outrageous. Transport and garbage trucks start traveling around the hotel at 5:30 - 6am and the noise is unbelievable, when laying in bed it sounds like there is a truck idling and honking its horn right beside your head. It was so loud we couldn't sleep. We paid for an upgraded room, I only wonder what a standard room is like. This hotel comparable to a poorly maintained hostel.
It is so dirty I was worried about the chance of contracting bugs and am in the process of thoroughly checking my luggage and all its contents.
I travel alot , for buisness and pleasure. I spend around 70 to 90 days a year in "economy" hotels all accross the U.S and Canada and this is right up there with being one of of the worst I have ever encountered.

If it wasn't for the excellent staff, I could have missed my flight. But they're concern for the welfare of their guests is legitimate. And this is what sets them above the fare in Waikiki. The location is good and the room sizes are exceptional compared to other hotels in the area. But if nothing else, go for the service. You'll be glad you did.

Nothing overly fancy about this hotel, but the staff were absolutely exceptional in every way. Always in great spirits, very knowledgeable about the area and never hesitated to print out bus routes when we inquired about various destinations. Great value for the money!

Room Tip: We had the 10th floor, which really helped to distance us from the street noise at night.

This isn't a fancy hotel by any means. It is sort of tucked into a street, and there is limited parking. However, the customer service is top notch. They held our luggage for us before we could check in without a cost. Check-in was easy. They gave us a free roll-away without charge. If I went back to Oahu, I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: We were with a group of friends (6 total) so we got a Junior Suite with Lanai. There was lots of flo...

With so many hotels located in Waikiki, it was not easy to find one that could be both good and not expensive. But in the end, after comparing many reviews, we made up our minds to stay at this place and this was definitely a good choice. We really liked its location in a side street of Kuhio Ave. but still within walking distance of Waikiki Beach. This makes the place to be quiet enough but also to be close enough to all the action, shops, restaurants and so on.
In case you don't hire a car when you arrive at Honolulu airport, an easy and cheap way to get to this hotel is by public buses 19 or 20 (they allowed us to board them with our luggage :-)). It is true that the ride takes an hour and fifteen minutes (or maybe a little bit more) but it just costs 2,5$ (you must have the exact amount when boarding the bus because no change is given if you only have bigger bills). These two buses have a stop in Kuhio Ave. just before Nahua St, where the hotel is, so you only have to walk a couple of minutes to get there from this bus stop.
The staff that welcomed us was very friendly, helpful and cheerful, so it looks like they have fun doing their job. Good for them! By the way, it is here, in front of the front desk where they have an Apple computer for guests who do not travel with laptops or other devices. We always appreciate that (we also appreciated the self-laundry they have). The only thing that we could not enjoy was a complimentary breakfast because this hotel doesn't offer it. They do neither offer a swimming pool but well..., who does want a swimming pool when Waikiki Beach is just ten minutes away? Conversely what they do offer are big, comfortable, clean and well equipped rooms (at least our was very big and fully equipped with refrigerator, microwave, tea/coffee facilities and a good and not loud air-conditioning). Our room had also a spacious balcony over Nahua St. which was not noisy at all. These are then the reasons why we are very pleased with our choice and there's no doubt that we would stay here again.
