Aston Waikiki Sunset
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Stayed in a one bedroom one bath unit on the 34th floor. The unit was very clean with a great ocean view. Very convenient to everything on Waikiki beach which is only two blocks away.

The only concern that I have is having to pay a resort fee. Just add it to the rate!!!!!!!!!!

The hotels are trying to copy the airlines....

Thank you for chosing to stay with us at the Aston Waikiki Sunset and we are pleased to see that you enjoyed your time spent at our property. Due to contracting with our travel partners and other acounts, we are unable to include the daily amenity fee into the room rate. Our $15.00 + tax amenity fee provides you with the use of DVD movies and games, use of the Playstation 2 game console, WiFi and wired high speed internet in room service, daily newspaper, coffee and tea daily, in room safe and local and toll free calls and is very reasonable as compared to other Waikiki properties. Mahalo!

We read some reviews that suggested this might be a bit of a 'budget' hotel, and we weren't expecting great things, but we were very pleasantly surprised! We had a 2 bedroom apartment with full kitchen. Yes, you must pay $15 per day for wifi, newspaper play station etc even if you don't use it, but our beds were made every day (even re-made after we made our own!) and our towels replaced daily. The apartment was spotlessly clean, and although small, was fine for our needs. We were in Room 2113, (20th floor-there is no floor 13) had no trouble with lift-noise, and had fantastic views.The ONLY criticism I'd have is that the room with the double bed that we had was very small. ie you can only just walk around the bed and there is nowhere is leave a suitcase out- you have to put it in the wardrobe. It wasn't a problem for us, but if you are a large or tall person or couple you may find it a bit of a nuisance. We used the pool alot, it was great. In terms of location, this accommodation is 2 blocks from the beach and one block from main bus routes. All a very easy short walk.

I had a great time there. The only problem was that the room we booked was supposed to have 2 tiwn beds with a full, and we only had a full and a couch bed. It wasnt a bad hotel at all. It was very nice and kept clean. The pool was closed for the first two days we were there and the laundry room was on every floor so it was very convienet. Everybody was nice there and were never mean. It was at a nice location close to the beach and you could pretty much walk anywhere you wanted. Great hotel. I would for sure reccommend it to another person who would go to Oahu Hawaii.

Room Tip: Make sure you check to see if they have the right room before you spend all the money to go and dont...

My wife and I decided to get out of the rain and take a long weekend to Honolulu without breaking the bank. We chose the Aston based on some of the previous traveler's reviews and they were accurate. If you're looking for a 5 star resort on the beach with great views, a great lobby and room service this is not the hotel for you. If you are looking for a clean hotel with a full kitchen and fully outfitted at a decent price, this would be the hotel for you. We've stayed at the 5 star hotels in Waikiki and dropped $200 on dinner. Buying dinner at Food Pantry and eating on the deck looking at the mountains was worth every penny. A couple blocks to the ocean and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Higher floors with Diamond Head view

We stayed at the Aston Sunset from 04/05/13 till the 15/05/13. It was magical. Every night we had a nighttime view of the mountains with the lights glittering in the dark. We stayed on the 35th floor so the view was breathtaking. The housekeeping was fantastic, there was nothing that was to big for the housekeeper to do for us. We had a minor issue with the DVD/game player, once we called maintenance, they attended almost as soon as I had put the phone down. If I could find any fault at all, the A/C was a bit to noisy. There was so much within easy walking distance. The staff were so very friendly and helpful, so if any of the Sunset staff are reading this, a massive ALOHA to you all and a bigger MAHALO. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the mountains are much better for the view :)

We stayed here May 4-13th, 2013 in a 1 bedroom ocean view unit.
The room was perfect. Separate bedroom and a living room / full kitchen area. Clean and well furnished. The room was cleaned daily and we never saw the maid.
The only thing I would comment on is the view of the ocean was a little disappointing. If you truly want an ocean view I would recommend staying in a hotel directly on the beachfront.
As far as location, once again it was great. Plenty of restaurants, bars and shopping within easy walking. I do recommend renting a car while you stay here. Not to get around Honolulu but to see other parts of the island which are absolutely beautiful, especially the north shore.
We would definitely stay at this hotel again and have no problem recommending it to others.
