“Small, clean, view worth a million dollars!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

If you want great value for your money in Waikiki, try this hotel. I've stayed there 4 times and will stay again! It's small, very clean and has the best location on Waikiki beach. Try to get the 5-8 th floor, centre balcony and the price is very reasonable depending on when you want to go and that goes for any hotel there. Why not have more spending money in your pocket and stay at this hotel, you won't regret it. Close to everything you need including the ABC chain of stores. Restaurants all within walking distance including the fairly newly opened restaurant at the front of the hotel, accessible from the Main Street. Waikiki Beach straight across the street!!!! The staff have always been a joy to deal with and are very accommodating.

Room Tip: 5-8th floor. Centre balcony, facing the Beach. Just ask for availability.

We started our journey in Hawaii here in March 2013, we stayed here for three nights before heading to the other islands. We stayed on the 6th Floor in the Ocean Front room. The room was well kept and everything we needed was provided. The Wi-Fi was excellent, the view was magnificent. The air-con was a little noise when it kicked in and out, but wasn't that we couldn't sleep. It would be great to substitute some of the double beds for 1 king-bed especially in the Ocean Front room. There was only the two of us and we slept separately.

When we came back to Waikiki after visiting the island we stayed at the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani - they couldn't even provide us with Wi-Fi in our room. I would have rather stayed at the Circle!

I would definitely stay here again and recommend staying here!

Room Tip: Go the ocean front room!

My wife and I stay in this hotel for 6 nights in July 2013 on our first visit to Hawaii. We stayed in an ocean front room at 14th floor and loved sitting on the balcony watching the surfers on Waikiki beach and lovely sunsets. The view from our room (no 1405) was just amazing! (see my attached photos and you understand what I am talking about).

The room were small but more than enough room for two people (see my photos). There is nothing to complain about the cleaning! Reception staff were really nice and very helpful.

Wi-Fi at the room with good capacity in the morning and during the day but with low capacity in the evening (too many users?)

This hotel is good value for money!

This was a return visit to the Aston Waikiki Circle and we were not disappointed. The staff were very helpful and co-operative and we appreciated the playstation 2 in our room, and free dvd's each day as part of the amenities fee. The promotion of stay 5 nights, pay for 4 was particularly appreciated. The room was clean, and serviced every day and anything else we required was quickly attended to. Very effective air conditioning was welcome. The location of this hotel is a feature, and very close to the beach, shops and restaurants. It was perfect for our family holiday and would recommend this hotel to other travellers, and would not hesitate to return again given the opportunity. Thank you to the management and staff for your service.

At the time the price appeared to be cheap but when I got there I was told there was an extra $10 a day charge for the extras such as internet and daily papers. The staff were friendly however which helped otherwise I think all in all I would have been disappointed.
The rooms were extremely small we had two adults and a child and there was no room in the room we had. Bags in the small corner where we had no room to unpack them. The shower was really small and the head wasn't very flexible and the water kept spraying out of the shower curtain. Water pressure was terrible and for a female made it hard to wash my long hair.
All in all you get what you pay, rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Great location right on the beach with eggs and things down strairs. Make sure you get a beach view great for singles or young teens traveling not for families. We knew when we booked but there is no pool or fitness centre. If your looking for a gym there is one just down the road a few meters. McDonald's was being built next door whilst we were there.

Room Tip: Just ensure that you pay the little bit more and get a ocean view as the rooms are small we spent al...

The accommodations here were average, but it did the trick. Our room was clean. The location was nice, and very close to Waikiki Beach and many restaurants and shops. Don't expect to be wowed by the property, but overall I thought it was a solid value.
