Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel

Reviewed December 17, 2013

I originally reserved a "partial ocean view room" and partial is an exaggeration! If you go on to the balcony and look very hard you can see a sliver of water. What you can see is other Aston properties next door and close enough to count freckles on a tourist's nose. :-) I complained to the manager and he had no ocean front available that night but in the morning i was upgraded to ocean front for an additional $30/ night plus tax and fees. While we're on the subject of fees; this property as most on Waikiki charge "activity fees" approximating $17/day. Why they don't include this in their room rate is beyond comprehension.

The hotel is in a great location across from the beach, walking distance to the zoo and easy walking access to shopping and dining in the area. I walked to Diamond Head in about an hour and then climbed to the peak, moderately strenuous and do it early. :-)

The rooms are NY small and bathrooms are even smaller, they're clean and adequate with large screen TV but not HiDef. You do have a coffee maker and cove with a desk which was comfortable for business folks like me. There is also a small fridge to keep liquid refreshments.

Because i was traveling alone and just needed a place to sleep and work, this hotel was satisfactory. If my wife had joined me, an upgrade to 3-4 star hotel would have been my choice.

Room Tip: Request ocean front 6th floor or higher, I was in 604

This quirky hotel has an excellent, central location. If you stay here spend the extra $$ and get an ocean view on the upper floors. You can't beat the views because the hotel is probably one of the closest to the beach. They have a very limited number of queen rooms so try to grab one of those also. If you don't want an ocean view (we stayed in a partial ocean view before upgrading) there are so many better options in Wikiki.

We stayed at this hotel with friends and found it to be a great hotel despite it's dated exterior. Great location & the rooms have been modernised. The staff are very helpful. Oceanfront rooms are well worth it. We would have preferred either a queen bed or king bed instead of 2 doubles which I feel took up more room than necessary. It doesn't have a pool but when you've got the ocean & ocean pools across the road, who needs it? Overall, I would definitely stay here again.

My brother & I stayed at this hotel for 6 night from 25/11 to 1/12. Perfect location right across the road from Waikiki Beach. Arrived on an early flight from Australia & our room was avail early which we appreciated. We had an Ocean Front room. At check-in was given the 4th floor, asked to be moved to a higher level which was done the very next morning. We had room 1305 on the 13th floor, view was amazing. Reception & house-keeping were great. It's my second time at this hotel & would have no hesitation staying here again... Location can't be beat, close to restaurants & a short walk to the International Market Place...

We recently stayed at this hotel and were very happy with our room.I was a bit dubious at first going on reviews but as our time got closer it was decided that we would only sleep there. We had a partial ocean view and felt it quite adequate. Yes the bathroom was a bit small we had no complaints. Room was serviced every day.and the management and staff very helpful. Across the road is Waikiki beach. My daughter stayed in oceanfront and that was spectacular views.
