This place is a great hotel for people who want to be in the heart of Waikiki. We had everything you needed from a kitchen to wifi. It was a 200m walk to the main beach and shops. It offers a bus for free to ala Moana as well. The day we left our transfer never showed up and Dan...

I stayed here two years ago and raved about the experience. Now, on my second stay I have noticed a few not so nice things about the place - that the rooms are all not created equal ( some are in better condition than others), that the staff ( while nice) can give out wrong information, and that the entire...

This was our first visit to the Aqua Bamboo and we had excellent, friendly service throughout our stay. The location is perfect- close to shopping, great restaurants, and of course an easy short walk to the beach, and Kapiolani park. Our room, 807, was beautiful, and just had a refreshing, new reno/update. It was very comfortable, and unique, with beautiful...

We made a return visit for a week in December 2016 to the beautiful Aqua Bamboo Hotel. The Aqua Bamboo Waikiki is one of the few mid-priced hotels in Waikiki which we have found to have the required level of safety and security for guests. The main doors to Aqua Bamboo lock at around 10.00pm each night and do not...
