We spent 4 very comfortable days at the Royal Kuhio in Nov.2013. The apartment was comfortable, roomy, clean, and had great views over the mountains and the daily rainbows that appeared there. The building was well-run, the parking so convenient & the pool was great. We walked everywhere since we were so centrally located. We would highly recommend this apartment...

Spent a week at this high rise in the heart of Honolulu. Condo was very nice, very clean and newly renovated. A/C a plus as you are surrounded by other high rises and there is NO breeze, ever!!!! The view is of other high rises, nothing else.The bed was comfortable. Check in was easy and the staff is very nice!...

I have been staying at the Royal Kuhio since 2000. The units have everything you need but really need updating. Same decor for 13 years. Mattress on pull out bed is like directly sleeping on springs, ouch. Lobby smells like a sewer and furniture is dated and unattractive. Location is good but noisy. Free/secure parking is a bonus and staff...

Upon arrival Sunday morning at 3:30 AM there were 5 police cars and an ambulance as well as a large gathering of people across the street at McDonalds. Security was good but not friendly. Vacation International staff weren't very friendly or welcoming. Parking free but on 6th floor. No Wi-Fi so you have to sit in the lobby and get...

You really have to review this place before booking a condo. The building has over thirty floors each with four or five condos on each floor all owned by different landlords so some are worse than others I guess. We rented 2513 for the first 5 nights we were in Honolulu and it was great. Not the biggest but well...

Pictures make the place look better than it is. For example, mattresses on bed and on pullout sofa were worn and overused; they need replacement now. The elevator lobbies were heavily scuffed and hadn't been wiped down w/ some 409 in years. A new coat of paint in a cheery color would do wonders for the place. The elevators desperately...

The place was clean and the bed had a "Sleep Number" mattress, so that was nice. The bathroom was small, had to be careful when closing the door, otherwise you would bang your toes. The refrigerator was very noisy and would cycle on for a very long time. Being on the 26th floor, you would think that street noise and...

We stayed in room 1012, which I believe I found on tripadvisor. I really have mixed feelings about the place. On one hand, it was a good deal. On the other, it was pretty run down. The main reason we stayed here is that we discovered that most of the hotels we had previously used in Waikiki won't accept more...

Room 1012 - This was a cute "little" condo located a block from all the action. If you have more than 4 people (it sleeps 6) choose another condo though. It has one bedroom with 2 queen size (I think) beds and a couch that folds out. The mattresses in the bedroom were comfortable but the mattress on the fold...

Booked the studio through Vacation Internationale (WorldMark timeshare). The bldg and rooms were clean but dated. I was seriously expecting to see the cast of Threes Company at any moment. The bldg is made up of owners and other timeshares so the experience will be different depending on who you book with. The room we stayed in is perfect for...
