you get clean sheets, good location and friendly service. Not your luxury hotel but if you looking for clean place to lay your head, this is it. It is located close to waikiki beach and has cooking available.

This hotel is great for travellers on a budget! The rooms are clean and tidy. The beds are comfy. The aircon blocks out noise from the street. And best of all the staff are so nice and helpful! The hotel is also a block away from Waikiki beach and central to everything. Which makes getting around Waikiki beach easy I...
