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...

If you wonder why there are no pictures of the front of the hotel on their website, it's because it looks like a small cheap motel from the outside. It is stuck in between some residential buildings, so the views from the balconies aren't that nice. Also, it's on Kuhio Ave, which is fine in the morning, but very shady...

My family and I booked the Aqua Bamboo first based on price and value, but after staying there for five days we realized there was no other place we would rather stay. The staff at the Aqua Bamboo is the best in the business. Most importantly they seem genuine in their efforts to serve you. The location is very convenient,...

After lots of research on hotels in Waikiki that would suits our needs, we decided on Aqua Bamboo. Having our 2.5 year old son with us, wanted something central, with a kitchenette, a living area to relax away from the bedroom and a room that we could enjoy spending time in if we had to while he slept in the...

The hotel website makes it look much nicer than it is. It is very small, with not many amenities, and while close to the beach not in the nicest section of waikiki (the surroundings felt quite seedy). The bed was small and not very comfortable, and the room overall felt quite tight. Although we were on the top floor, the...

I arrived late last night with my 8 year old son. The hotel was fully booked and we were given our pre assigned room which was a studio with a partial kitchen. The room itself is ok but there is no extractor fan so when you cook the room smells of food! Our view is a huge wall and our...
