Several years ago, my travel agent booked this hotel for us. When we got there the front desk staff gave us a room on the lowest level with a view of the parking ramp! We asked for a better room but were told it would cost extra so I paid an extra $250 out of pocket for three nights. After the trip my travel agent showed me that he had booked an ocean view room AND PAID EXTRA for it and scolded me for not phoning him on the spot! Felt really scamed by this hotel!

The rooms are small pie shaped contraptions in which you would not want to spend much time.

Aloha Cabnfever,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your review with us and especially for bringing to light the difference between our OCEAN VIEW and OCEAN FRONT rooms.

Our hotel has four different categories: City View, Partial Ocean View, Ocean View, and Ocean Front. A diagram of our rooms can be found here: http://www.astonhotels.com/resort/overview/aston-waikiki-circle-hotel under “Room Info”. Ocean View rooms are located on the side of our building (with the exception of the second floor) while Ocean Front rooms are the first three rooms facing the ocean. Unfortunately these categories often get confused for one another.

I believe your travel agent was correct in telling you your reservation was for Ocean View. I see that upon arrival you were on our lowest level, which actually has Ocean View rooms that extend all the way to the front (see diagram). Rooms in that same position, but on a higher floor, would change your category to Ocean Front, explaining the upgrade charge.

Please accept my apologies for any confusion this may have caused. It was never our intent to make you feel as though did not get what was paid for. I sincerely hope that this explanation has brought clarity to the situation.

Mahalo for choosing the Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel!

Great location to stay if you just need a room. No amenities of the the resort type. So if you want the step out to the beach and Waikiki center this is the hotel for you. The room and bathroom are really small. No fancy pool. Nice place just not a lot to it.

We stayed for over a week in this hotel and it was everything we needed for our stay in Honolulu. We thought we would miss the pool but not at all! The location is perfect.You have the beach right in front of the hotel! You do definitely want book ocean front view room and on the higher floors. We did not have any problem in the hotel. It was a great stay and for a reasonable price in comparison with the hotels in the area.

Room Tip: ocean front view are the best. Higher floors to avoid noise

Hotel is small (in a nice way) and staff are efficient. We had a full ocean view room which is more expensive but totally worth it. Rooms are quite small but very clean and cute! If you are on the larger side I would recommend going elsewhere as the bathrooms are tight (and I'm not a big person). The location is great- right on the beach in the middle of Waikiki. If you don't like the hustle bustle of a touristy area then don't stay in the heart of Waikiki as it can be a little noisy but we loved it. We would definitely return to this hotel :)

I loved this hotel. Nothing fancy really, not even a real lobby, but rooms were clean and comfy and staff was great! Best thing is views and price for that view and awesome location. Every room has a view and I have paid a lot more for views over parking lots. Location is fantastic! Beach is right there as is everything else. We had a car and went all over Oahu. Parking is 15 a day, very good for Waikiki. Staff was great and very responsive. No frills but aren't missed.

Room Tip: You don't need to pay extra for ocean front, but ask for" ocean view" which is great a...

The Waikiki circle hotel is great value for the beachfront location and a short stroll to some great shopping!
The room decor is very welcoming and was a good size for us travelling as a couple. The bathroom is a little small and the air con is a little noisy but it didnt affect our stay at all.
We had a fantastic view of the beach and up the street from the balcony. Not advisable to leave anything on the balcony as it is very windy. Street noise was not an issue to us up on the 5th floor.
The hotel was clean and comfortable, would definitely stay there again!
