Excellent location and good price

This hotel is in a great location--just a few blocks from Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head, and zoo. The hotel is an older hotel but well maintained. Rooms were clean, tidy, and average in size . The hallways are narrow. We had a room on the side of the hotel which overlooked the top of the next building. The back of the hotel overlooked a nice pool, tiki hut and sitting area. Next to the pool was a small little hotel operated restaurant that served pizza. Pool towels were available to use at poolside or the beach. Boogie boards and beach chairs were available for borrowing. Equipment was in good condition. The room had a mini kitchen with a two burner stove, sink, and small refrigerator. Pots, pans, dishes, cooking utensils and eating utensils were present and in good condition. There is a grocery store several blocks down the street. Restaurants are available close by. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The concierge helped us with reservations for events we selected. Valet parking for your car is available at $25.00 per night. Public transportation is available within a block of the hotel. We will definitely stay here the next time we are in Honolulu. Good price and great location.

Close to everything

We rented two regular hotel rooms with another couple. When we arrived they upgraded us to mini-kitchen rooms with two queen sized beds, a fridge, two burner glass cooktop and microwave. We used the fridge to store some drinks and food that we bought at the nearby ABC store. Everything in the kitchen was clean. I was prepared for some street noise after reading reviews, but none of us had a problem. Our rooms were 208 and 205. 208 was at the side facing another building, 205 was facing the front. The air conditioner made some noise, but also helped to mask the traffic sound. All in all, not bad. The bed was very comfortable so we slept well.We were fortunate to be there on a Thursday evening when the hotel put on a complimentary luau in the pool area. Free Mai Tais and snacks. We liked the little pool and the garden. A nice place to unwind after battling the crowds of Honolulu.We thought the staff was very friendly and helpful. We scheduled a shuttle to Pearl Harbor through the concierge and that worked out well. The location was ideal for people who don't have trouble walking. The beach was about three blocks. The hotel loans out beach boards, chairs, towels etc.. The Eggs and Things. Breakfast place was about the same distance. We would recommend that place for a good and reasonably priced breakfast.Not a fancy place and a little dated, but if you don't expect luxury, you should enjoy your stay.

So close to the beach!

This hotel was perfect for our family of four. We have two teens and the space was so practical. We walked to the beach one block and had a blast. Nice hotel for the price! We went in Nov 2015. Everything is so expensive but Aqua hotels are more Affordable.

I was Bamboozled

From the moment we entered the foyer of the Aqua Bamboo, until we departed 18 days later, nothing was a problem for the staff, the facilities was first class, room was cleaned and refreshed every day by friendly staff, My family and I have travelled to Honolulu for the past 20 years and have stayed at most of the '5* hotels, but the Aqua Bamboo has been our choice for the past 10 years and will continue to be our choice.From the 'boss' Nicole to Zenie at the front desk Junior maintaining the grounds, pool etc, every member of the staff treat you like Ohana- family.As Arnie said, WE'LL BE BACK.

Ok for resting your head.

Ok, three of us stayed in the room, had stove, microwave & full size fridge, so that was good. We didn't really speak with staff as we were out most of the time, so can't really comment on them. Place is in need of an update, it is looking a little old & worn. Had a really noisy wall mounted air con. But if you just want somewhere to sleep & you don't mind noise, then you'll be fine. If your someone that likes a clean modern room, then this place is not for you.
