This hotel looks pretty average from the outside and is certainly dated and in need of an upgrade (believe one is coming), however it is in a great location, just a block from the beach. Also the room is huge and has a nice balcony, modern tv, kitchenette and some very high quality bathroom amenities. Considering the price of hotels...

We are excited to let you know that we are going to do a major remodel starting on March 12 2017 and hopefully finish by July.

This was my third stay at this hotel and if you are looking for a clean comfortable place to stay this is it. It would have to be the most budget friendly accommodation in Waikiki. It is extremely close to the beach although you don't have a view of it from the balcony you do get to people watch all...

Aloha Petittrianon, Thank you for being a repeat guest. We hope that you become a repeat guest of the Waikiki Central Hotel, our new name after the renovation. After renovation, we will no longer offer the full kitchenette. The stove and oven took up too much room and were rarely used. We will still have a microwave, sink, refrigerator, toaster,...

The room was very comfortable and front desk people were very helpful and friendly. We didn't experience any loud noise. It is an older hotel but perfect for what we needed. Would stay again. We had everything we needed

The Waikiki Prince is in the perfect location to explore Waikiki from. The beach is just down the street, there are several cafes and restaurants that offer fresh and affordable food, a surf shop and a couple of ABC stores. I had a nice corner room, which was clean and spacious, and featured a kitchenette. Very friendly staff, mahalo!

I stayed here twice. Two nights on the way to the big island and two nights on the way back. It's definitely old and worn and I didn't like walking on the carpet with bare feet! But the facilities are good. Nice toiletries, good coffee maker, fridge that worked, modern tv with good reception and most of the time the...

This was the perfect accommodation for our little family- great location, clean and comfortable rooms with awesome kitchenette, and friendly staff. It's a block away from the famous and beautiful Waikiki beach with convenient shops like the Food Pantry grocery store around the corner, and the bus stop to Diamond Head and other sight seeing locations. They have beach supplies...
