Stayed at the Queen Kap for 14 days. decided to upgrade to a Diamond Head view room @ a bit extra and the view is definitely worth it. The hotel is dated in some regards but overall a pleasant experience for the price. Found the pool area sparsely attended. The morning buffet is nice but pricey. Try to negotiate a cheaper price if you plan to eat there every morning. I chinced out and walked up to the Safeway to grab some groceries for b'fast each day. DO NOT buy booze in the gift shop- walk to the main drag and turn right there's an ABC right there with cheaper prices. As you will see ABC stores are everywhere in Waikiki. The location is amazing- 5 minutes to the beach and the strip. Yeah there can be a few direlects hanging about that end but which city doesn't have 'em? Save your money with this hotel so you can spend it on excursions and good restaurants (Duke's anyone?) . As for the room itself, the washroom basin left something to be desired in that it was dinged up in spots, and the shower had some scratches on the wall but the water was hot and everyting worked fine. Plus there are laundry facilities on site which helped when you stay that long. I must say I cheated a bit one day by sauntering up to one of the pricier hotels right on the beach and enjoyed their pool and hot tub facilities. Well when in Rome...what?? Anyway- back to the Queen Kap- She's a lovely old Gem and worth the stay and the lower price. Enjoy!
