Waikiki is so expensive, but this hotel was less than a lot of the others, but still within walking distance of Waikiki. Room was spacious and clean. Full kitchen was nice, and we enjoyed the lanai with our peekaboo ocean view. Only issue was the AC had a short cycle (turn on and run for a few mins, turn off...

I'm unsure who previous guests dealt with. All staff were courteous and polite during our month long stay. Yes the building could use sprucing. (They were steam cleaning hall carpets while we were here). But its not dirty at all. It was the perfect vacation! Location is great! View was to die for! Kitchen was super convenient, too. We were...

This place was perfect for a month long stay. Having a full kitchen is always a plus as it gets old eating out everyday. The rooms were clean and the staff extremely friendly. I will consider this place if returning.

Aloha Thomas P, Thank you so much for your positive comments and scores on our friendly service, full kitchen and your overall experience with us! Many our guests take advantage of the cooking food on their own instead of always eating out every day. Not only does it save money but some of our guests have food allergies which having...

The rooms by the elevators have a lovely view on the upper floors but are extremely noisy and it is all night long, It is ignorable if you are a heavy sleeper but we switched as we were there for a long time. The upper floors present wonderful views all around and we had views of the fireworks on New...

Very old, outdated & needs a general facelift in all areas..especially the pool. The rooms felt like you were stepping back in time to the late 70's. Dosent look at all like the pics on the Internet. Kitchen was good..bathrooms lousy. Small unusable balcony. If you can afford it..stay in something newer.. View to Diamond Head was great being on...

I always stay here whenever I go back to Honolulu..

The front desk service was so unfriendly and rude. They need tranning for customer service. Also they are very late to orgarnaize. It makes long line to wait by someone who want checkin/out They never answer the front phone from room. Dirty room. I felt that sand while I stayed. Their cleanning condition was not good. Too old fashioned condo...

My husband turned 50 and to celebrate I booked a surprise trip for the family in Hawaii. The Aston is an older style building with 38 levels, it was clean comfortable and well located. If you what luxury this is NOT the place. If you what value for your hard earned money STAY here.Yes I would happily stay there again.

The only good thing about this hotel was the view from our room and Shaun the concierge. The other staff were miserable and not helpful at all. If they were asked a question the response was " I don't know sorry". The carpet in the room was disgusting and smelt. The hotel is in need of a good clean. Will...
