“The Bamboo was Great!”
Reviewed June 14, 2006

What a great little hotel! The lava rock fountain pool is surrounded by tropic decor which was relaxing and refreshing. The location it fantastic, block and half to Waikiki beach, tons of places to eat and shop. My room was on the 12th floor facing the ocean which gave us a great view. Make sure you don’t have a room facing the street side it will be very loud being the hotel is set on a main street. My room had a microwave and refrigerator which was nice being they bring you a continental breakfast every morning. The spa is nice and the front desk people are very nice and helpful. The only bad thing was the small full size beds; otherwise you can’t beat the value the Bamboo offers. I would stay here again…

it was great stay for us, i would not recomend average hotel room as they are too small and there is noise from the street, however superior rooms and one bedrooms are very nice, breakfast is free and they serve it in the room or by the swimming pool, food was very fresh & tasty, we are going back next year!

Had the priviledge of staying at the Bamboo on a recent vacation to Honolulu. The hotel is clean and well managed. The front desk staff was professional, attentive and courteous. The lobby and pool area are updated, well appointed and pleasingly decorated. Our room was small but comfortable...typical of most older buildings. You can't beat the location unless you want to pay 2-3x more for your room right on the beach. Top notch, elegant or fancy wouldn't be words I'd choose...but for a budget minded traveler looking for a clean place to sleep, bathe etc... you've got one. Run your air conditioner to kill some of the street noise that is abundant everywhere in Honolulu. The higher floor rooms obviously are better for this as well. Traveling by profession...I found this to be a very acceptible alternative to the high priced mainline hotels leaving more $$$ for the stuff you really want to do and see in Hawaii.

For everyone complaining about street noise and outdated hotel....You get what you pay for. You can have what you want at the Hyatt for $250 a night. I loved it for the price and location. There is street noise in every city, so you folks probably aren't from the city, didn't bother me.

Very close to the beach, reasonable priced and modern decor. The staff was very friendly and the pool area was nice. The room had a small kitchen area which was nice. The bathroom was the biggest disappointment. It was dirty and moldy and the seperate shower was especially gross - I don't think it had been cleaned in a while. Overall though, it wasn't that bad and if you don't plan on spending much time in your room, it's worth it.

I traveled all the way to Hawaii from NY and boy was it a trip 12 hours long. I got to my room and at first glance the room was nice I had what they called a one bedroom suite. I stayed for 6 nights and after a few days I started to notice alot of problems in the room. First off the bathroom did not seem to be cleaned there seemed to be old urine by the toilet, the sink looked dirty and 1 of the 3 balcony views which we had was broke and could not be open. I must say though the night crew who checked me in was great and the day people I would have to say was not that nice and rarely acknowledged you as you left and returmed. They give free breakfeast if you wanna call it that, it consists of a juice, some funny looking cake and a yogurt. The place looks like it could really use an overhaul in all aspects it looks really old and used up.

After reading every review and checking out the Bamboo's website pictures directly,I decided to book a week here.From my understanding the hotel had been "completely renovated". This is not the case at all.The first room we were supposed to stay in smelled so bad and the kitchen was original 1960's tile and oven/range.We asked for a different room which was a little better but not much.The showers had mold growing in them.The balconies that we had faced Kuhio St. so it was noisy,not to mention they were so small we had to scale the railing just to sit on the bench.They were also doing repairs on the front drive so all day it was nothing but jackhammers going.We didn't find this out until the day the work started. The pool area is about the only nice feature of this hotel.I will never stay here agin or recommend it to anyone. Stay next door at the Pacific Monarch. Much nicer.
