I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The service was excellent. The bed was comfortable. I had to get used to the large dogs in the hotel. The restaurant & pool area was great. Great view & convenient location.

I got the room with the view, and it had a mini terrace with a beautiful view of Diamond Head and the beach. Also the room is bigger than I expected and had a mini kitchen. The only complain I have it's that I could hear screams from the room next door at every hour of the day (including at sleep time...) and even though I called the front desk several times, the noises stopped for a while and then began again and again :(... I think they should've done something more serious about it. Because the screams and noises were excessive. Other than that (I guess I had bad luck) it was at a perfect location, and I really liked my stay. I would definitely come back again!!

I had the opportunity to stay at the newly renovated Queen Kapiolani last fall and returned a couple of weeks ago. This quaint hotel is in an ideal location, walking distance to many shops and restaurants and especially important the beach. From check-in, to the bar staff at the Deck, housekeeping and valet, everyone we encountered showed much Aloha. Room 810 had a magnificent view of Diamond Head and the ocean. All rooms are well appointed and clean. I'm looking forward to my next stay at the Queen Kapiolani.

Although my trip was unplanned my stay was unplanned my booking was accidental everything was absolutely perfectly suitable for the timing what I need to do and why I was there , staff at least in my head went out of their way to treat me well which was really a special feeling considering I really am a solo act.

Beautiful property just off the main strip in Waikiki. Rooms are postage stamp (big city) size, but clean and bright. Good hot water and well drained shower. Nice towels. Wonderful view of Diamond Head from Deck restaurant on 3rd floor (which is not run by hotel). Very helpful staff. Good value for the area.

I returned back to Queen Kapiolani Hotel and again this hotel is the best. My room had a breathtaking view of Diamond Head and was very clean. I also got to catch a yoga class on the Lanai and then work out in the gym. The staff is so friendly and I seriously cant wait to return back.

My husband and I booked Queen Kapi’olani for the last two nights of our honeymoon. We thought it would be a cute Hawaiian boutique hotel based on the photos and tried to choose a place we couldn’t stay at anywhere else. Unfortunately the pictures were misleading. Our room was underwhelming and dirty. After finding bright yellow stains on the comforter and brown stains on the toilet seat we immediately canceled our second night there and stayed at a much more well-known brand name hotel for the same price and had a much better experience. I did give it two stars because if it hadn’t been for the stained bed and toilet, we probably would have stayed. The ocean view was lovely, the coffee shop downstairs was quick and had great craft coffee, and the location of the hotel was on the Main Street along Waikiki beach but at the end away from the noise. The noise that we could hear from inside the hotel though certainly made up for it. We found a sleep machine app on our phones in order to be able to drown out the noise and get some sleep. We really wanted to love queen Kapi’olani, but unfortunately I would not recommend a stay there.

Booked a Hawaiian cruise in early May, 2022 which included a two night stay prior to the cruise, at the Queen Kapiolani Hotel. We arrived late in the evening and were met at reception by a very pleasant, cordial and helpful staff member. The rooms were clean and adequate and the beds were very comfortable after a full day of travel…… slept well the rest of the night. In the morning, we went out to explore Waikiki Beach and was pleasantly surprised that it was only a very short walk away close to many shopping venues and restaurants. The amenities offered in the lobby, restaurant, pool and bar area, exercise room, etc., were clean and comfortable. It is a pet friendly hotel for those so inclined, & right across the street from the zoo & within a reasonable walk to the Diamond Head State Monument Park. The views from the summit were breath taking. We were quite satisfied with our stay & would consider booking again, if we found ourselves re-visiting Honolulu.

Aloha, Normally we stay at Marriott Hotels in Oahu, this time my friend Richard Oshiro recommended to stay at his hotel as we needed 4 rooms. I can say that our overall experience was outstanding! Hotel Location, Housekeeping, Valet, Lobby Bar were great! Anyone looking to get good value for the money, consider this hotel! The only drawback was elevators which are slow. In fact one was out of order for sometime. Well this is just minor and an opportunity to look into. Otherwise great hotel to stay for leisure travelers. Thank you Kapiolani leadership team for making our stay seamless! Mahalo
