“Great Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

Stayed here for a week in January. Very clean room and balcony view was amazing (room 1103). Right across the street from the beach. For some money saving tips: go to the apple store and use their ipads. Also for wifi go to Mcds, Starbucks, or apple store. Also, eggs and things way over priced. Find a restaurant called Seaside Bar and Grill. Very cheap breakfast that will fill you up all day!
Only downside to hotel was their beach towels. Very old and worn out. But at least we could sign out new ones every day.

Room Tip: Book early to save money and get ocean front or view!

Great location, like every hotel in Waikiki there is a street noise problem (I was on the 13th floor in an Ocean Front room). The rooms are tiny (which is no surprise if you look at the photos on the hotel website), and feel even smaller because of the two double beds. The room was clean, I couldn’t hear any noise from the adjacent rooms. The air con unit in my room was quite loud and blew water on me every time I went out onto the balcony.
It was an easy walk to the ‘Football Express!’ shuttle bus for the Pro Bowl. Staff were all friendly, being a small hotel you never have to wait long for an elevator.
I would happily stay here again, it is in the ‘busy’ end of Waikiki but just outside the really hectic part which I found perfect.

The current Waikiki Beach works had virtually no impact on my view, they are working in a very non intrusive way.

Cons: no lobby, no pool, no restaurant,no king sized beds (?), tiny selection of pay-per-view movies (which turned out fine, cuz they cost almost $18??) - and lastly, the only "con" I really cared about was the sub par cleaning of the bathroom countertops. Ucky.

Pros: Oceanfront room was perfection (room 1304 to be exact....& since when do hotels have 13th floor)?? The room was a good size, but of course oddly configured -- it's the shape of a circle, what do you expect? Lol.

For us, being directly across the street from Kuhio Beach was perfect. My husband pulled is surfboard out of the hotel's locker, and was in the water within 5 minutes. We rented chairs & umbrellas from Beachboy Aki everyday, and could not have been happier.

For the right price ($150 for ocean front) we would happily stay here again.

The Waikiki Circle Hotel is located directly across Kalakaua Avenue from Waikiki Beach. The hotel has been recently renovated so that it has a bright, up-beat, family-oriented presentation. The staff are uniformly pleasant and friendly. The Waikiki Circle Hotel is particularly well situated if you intend to walk the Waikiki area which includes beaches, an aquarium, zoo, Kapiolani Park, Diamond Head, and numerous high end to medium shopping venues. The area's restaurant selections are nearly limitless. This is an area where you can be doing something every minute or just relax on the beach. Rooms have balconies, refrigerators, coffee makers, large screen TV and Internet connectivity.

Excellent location just across from Waikiki Beach, very convenient for everything, just a few steps to MacDonald, money saving for breakfast. ABC stores nearby. Trolley bus stop across the street, a couple blocks away for bus stop going to Diamond Head, Zoo. Walking distance to Food Pantry for grocery, fruits, salads, sandwiches etc.
Staying at the beautiful ocean front room was a wonderful thing. Room & bathroom are small but it has everything, sitting at the balony with such a great beach view, watching beautiful sunset. You just love it.
You won't mind to pay for more for the ocean front room, it's worth it. It's even better going for higher floor if it's available.
There is a restaurant "Eggs & things" at the hotel, Crepe is excellent. Long line up each morning. I ordered take out, ate at the room balony, enjoying the great beach view.
Overall, I love this little hotel, sure will come back next time in Waikiki.

Room Tip: Ocean front room or ocean view. Don't pick City View room beacuse of saving $

Excellent hotel for the money.The location cannot be beaten,right acroos the street from the beach.
The hotel is super ok.The trouble is with the resort itself:
1.Too many homeless and too many beggars on the streets,especially within Waikiki beach area
2.Too many homosexual couples on the beach;I have a feeling this resort is a hub for them.I wasn't very comfortable, especially when you travel with kids and family,you feel kinda funny to see all those male lovers with their bikini and all that...Yak!I know is afree country,but still...

I booked this hotel 9 months ahead so I got it on cheap rate though we were given a parking lot view with partial ocean view I still think its value for money considering its just in front of Waikiki beach.it is located on a shopping strip of Kalakaua Avenue , McDonald is just steps from doorstep where you can access wi fi and Eggs and things restaurant located in the lobby where you need to be very early to avoid long queue. There are 2 available computer on lobby for fee ,free online check in is available and you only pay for printing.Staff are helpful and rooms are cleaned everyday.it is manned 24 hours so checkout is not a problem.this Hotel is by far value for money,there is no amenities which is okay because we are out most of the time and we use the room mainly for snoozing...
