This little hotel had everything I needed and a lot of little luxuries I would expect at a really upscale place. The room was small but modern, with little touches like orchids and throw pillows, and the free upgrade to a kitchenette was a lifesaver! The courtyard has a lovely garden feel to it, with a small pool and hot tub - I barely used these since the walk to the beach was so easy. The restaurant was relatively pricey but good food and friendly service. Loved the lemon water and the espresso machine in the lobby. I was able to get late checkout at the last minute, too.

A few cons: the bed was quite soft (and therefore uncomfortable for me), the airconditioning unit was a little loud, and the bathroom was a little awkward, but these are minor issues and not a big deal when you consider what value and character you get for your money. I'd definitely stay here again.

We were upgraded by mistake to a beautiful 1 bedroom suite, living room with seperate fridge, plus kitchnette (room 1204).
Manager waived all upgrade charges.
Kitchnette is a must for Waikiki. Great savings by having breakfast in room. Foodpantry (Grocery store) a few minutes away and ABC stores at every corner. We enjoyed our 2 week stay.
Concierge in Hotel made excellent recommendations for Island Tour, Luau etc.

We love to go to smaller hotels rather than the huge resort hotels and this hotel fit us perfectly. It had a great kinda retro touch to it that really gave it a lot of character. We loved having a little kitchenette in the room where we cooked breakfast sometimes and could keep sandwiches and what not in the fridge. It a great walking distance to the beach (should only take you at max 10 minutes) and right by a bus stop as well that can take you to downtown Honolulu and other parts of the island. It was clean, comfortable, welcoming and convenient.

We enjoyed our stay at the Aqua Bamboo. It is close the beach and all the sights in Honolulu. It was nice to have a kitchen and the upgrade to a suite was wonderful. We ate a several nice restaurants in the area and there were some farmer's markets where we could buy apple bananas and other fresh fruits.

It was a close walk to the beach which was a big plus. The price was decent and having a stove in the room was helpful. It was also convenient to near by shops and transportation. I would stay here again.
