When we booked this hotel, we wonder if it's good or bad. When we arrived, the front desk was nice and very helpful. Our room has a pleasant view seeing the beach and ocean. It included a stove, microwave, small coffee machine, and mini fridge. The hotel has a pool outside but we didn't use that chance to swim. The...

I was in Honolulu for two weeks for work. The room and internet were good for getting work done. The location was great for getting to the beach when I had free time. The hotel was clean, staff was friendly, the neighborhood felt safe (as a single, female traveler) and the price was really reasonable.

Behind its unassuming exterior, this hotel offers a very pleasant, somewhat familial atmosphere, contrasting with the large chain hotels prevalent in Waikiki. It is located within easy walking distance of every Waikiki attraction, including the beach. The pool area located behind the hotel borders a quiet street with almost no traffic, and doubles as a garden for those just seeking...

The Hotel was very nice. They seemed to do a lot of little things that were very nice like hosting a free Happy Hour on Thursdays, free coffee, tea, lemonade, and fruit in the lobby. It was also very affordable and a 2 minute walk from the beach. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Just a few minutes from the ocean and just a block away from the action of Waikiki Beach is this quiet little treasure of a hotel. Offering lovely rooms with balconies and kitchenettes, the Aqua is a boutique hotel of the finest order. An attentive and friendly staff were available 24/7 for any needs that might arise. The lobby, pool...

We booked this hotel, as we always do, by weighing the price we could get it for with the TripAdviser reviews. I have to say, we were a little under-impressed. The price was good; we got a package deal through Expedia with our airfare and hotel for 7 nights for just over $2100 (pre-taxes, of course). The location is good;...

I am back to write a follow-up review as I said after my Feb visit that I will be back - and I did - this time with my hubby, who I tell you is quite the traveler as his job affords him to. He agreed to stay here since I raved about it the first time. I requested a...

I have been all over the world and have been coming back to Waikiki for the past 5 years with a few hotels that I have liked. However, I must say this is one of the best hotels I have stayed at by far. The location is good, the rooms are perfect, the service is excellent, the value is worth...

A great hotel! Small, charming, warm and welcoming, and just a block from the beach. This is my second visit, and it felt like coming home. The staff is so friendly and helpful, it only made the stay that much better. Amidst the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, is feels like a touch of old Hawaii. Not a lot of...
