“Great place for location and price!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We had a great stay at Aqua Bamboo, the staff were fantastic, service was always with a smile, nothing was an effort. The hotel was clean. The wifi worked well in the room and other parts. We had one bedroom kitchenette which was fantastic, with 2 kids we ate breakfast in most mornings and even had dinner in a couple of nights. The hotel is very central to everything. The only complaint I could make was that the air con was a little noisy, though after longs days out and about no one had a problem sleeping and sometimes the street noise can be a little loud, we were on the 7th floor, so maybe higher up would be better.
It also had washing machines and dryers on 3 different levels which came in very handy and also cheaper than the laundromat down the road.

Room Tip: Get a room as high as you can.

Stayed overnight on our way to Maui. Excellent room. Extremely comfortable bed. Great location. Good service. Very good value for money. Concierge directed us to 'where she would eat'..and it was excellent. What more could you ask for?

We had a wonderful time in Honolulu. The Aqua Bamboo Hotel was a great location. Just a block away from the beach and without paying exorbitant prices. The room was very comfortable and having cooking facilities and free Wi-Fi made our stay very enjoyable. The air con was a little noisy and if you don't live in a city the street noise can take a little getting use too (In future i would request a room that is not facing the road). The staff were always very helpful and so polite. Thank you

Room Tip: Rooms not facing the road are quieter

My friend and I stayed at this hotel for about 10 days July / August 2013. When we first arrive from our Sydney flight 8.30am we actually a day early due to my over sight of the date change, point being, the hotel staff were so helpful, accommodated us without fuss and we stayed in those rooms for the rest of our stay. The hotel has no food or drink on site, seriously who cares, everything is at your finger tips. Pool area is great, clean and quiet, there were next to no children while we were there, very quiet and peaceful. You don't need towels for the beach or the pool, the hotel loans it all out. The concierge was great, arranged all out activities precisely and without fuss, even the rental vehicle. The hotel is older but it's really really good, the beds have comfortable pillow top mattresses and pillows were fine. I will defiantly stay at this hotel again, for sure.

we really enjoyed our stay, the staff were excellent, helpful and friendly. our room was fantastic we had the most amazing balcony. we were very comfortable in our room which was very spacious. would have been good to have WiFi in our room but we could get it by the pool and the lobby. The bathroom exhaust fan was very noisy but that is our only complaint. location was very convenient, close to the beach, shops, restaurants - price was great too. we hope to return one day :)

Room Tip: room with large balcony is amazing very spacious

This was our first trip to Hawaii as a family and we did a lot of research into hotels. We knew we wanted good location and a full kitchen. Bamboo has both. It is right in the middle of the excitement of Waikiki, but it feels like a small oasis. The staff was so friendly and heplful. When I returned home I realized that I had left a somewhat insignificant, but very sentimental item in my room. The staff at Bamboo found it and made sure it was returned to me in California. I was so thankful. We stayed in a one bedroom, full kitchen room. It seemed a little small. The air conditioners were a bit noisy, but we were so exhauted each night we hardly noticed. Overall a wonderful experience.
