The hotel is located near the strip of lake, if you get the corner room (like us on the first night) – then you will have real good view from the hotel room. The room itself a standard hotel room – clean, comfortable with usual necessity. It is about 5 mins walk to the shopping area and 10-15 mins walk to Waikiki beach. The one I like the most about this hotel is that it provides beach towel – so we just grab the towels from the laundry place and no need to worry about having no towel for showering at night after a day at the beach since we used the towel from the hotel’s bathroom! Staffs are hit and miss, some staffs are very friendly to us – but some are quite rude as well. So, depend on your luck really.. The “free“ breakfast was rubbish though. At the end we never used our coupons for breakfast – we just ate breakfast out….
And... the area itself quite dodgy. Every time we passed the apartment next to the hotel on our way to the shops, EVERYDAY we smell weed. Plus my partner actually saw a girl sitting outside casually rolling one. Another 2 blocks from the hotel (where the shops/supermarkets are) there are A LOT of prostitutes on the street. My friends got asked couple of times on different nights whether he's "free to play". Mind you, we walked around the area every day for a week – and it was all good, no troubles or anything.. I think it will be ok if you are staying as young couples/with friends, but I wouldn’t recommend this hotel if you are travelling as family. Nothing against the hotel, just area little bit dodge..
