Travellers' Choice

The Paniolo is a charming boutique Honolulu hotel located on Waikiki’s “Upper West Side” where you will find an abundance of restaurants, easy access to one of the world’s largest shopping malls, a quick stroll to the beach and gorgeous sunset views. This Honolulu Hotel is Waikiki’s only “North Shore connection,” as the ownership company also manages a magnificent 100-acre stretch of completely unspoiled beachfront property along O‘ahu’s North Shore. This is the home of the Hawai‘i Polo Club where polo matches, polo lessons and spectacular trail rides become available to hotel guests. We encourage our guests to make the beautiful drive to the hotel’s sister property on the North Shore for a day of riding, picnicking, swimming or beachcombing.

The Paniolo Bar & Cafe is open daily from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm. Get an early start with hand-crafted artisan coffee and pastries served from morning till noon. Come back for happy hour with creative cocktails and drinks at night. Enjoy live music every Friday starting at 6:00 pm.

Everything was great! Only downfall was the VERY limited parking. We booked with you because of the parking but there were two nights we had to search for parking elsewhere which was a bummer. Other than that, price and amenities were exactly what we needed. Bed was super comfy. Had a small fridge, coffee machine and a balcony. AC was blasting when we got in (actually a little too cold for me and couldn't figure out how to keep it off). Chad and Dana working at the bar/cafe were hospitable and welcoming. Always making sure we had everything we needed.

Great and affordable place to stay. Was offered convenient parking which gave me the flexibility of exploring all of Oahu outside oh Honolulu. Staff was also very helpful and was clean. The beach was also a short walk away.

Our stay here exceeded all expectations. The room was clean, the location was phenomenal, and the vibes were astronomical. The bar was amazing, special shout-out to Chad and black for making us feel so welcome and also making the best drinks in Wakiki (ask for Chad’s Paniolo punch or espresso martinis- it will not disappoint). Overall this was the best vacation my boyfriend and I have ever taken and a huge part of that was because of Paniolo and the kind, courteous, cool people that run the show. Not for nothing - but this is the first review I’ve left in my life. Thank you guys!! Mahalo :)
