Fine stay

Nothing grand and nothing awful about the room. Standard hotel room with small kitchenette. Comfortable beds (2 beds and sofa bed). Room large enough for 2 adults, 1 teen and 1 child. Small bathroom with an odd door. The AC unit in room #1210 was loud. We could not have it on during the night. We opted to have the sliding door opened slightly for fresh air and a breeze. Would of liked to have a screen door. Beach/pool towels available at the front desk. The pool is heated by the sun and gets a large amount of shade in the afternoon. Nice large sun area and a good size pool. Did not have a chance to try food at the cafe as it was closed due to a death in the family. We were only in Honolulu for the historic sites at Pearl Harbor so knowing we weren't spending much time in the room it was fine for us. We received a coupon for a discount in the parking garage without asking at check-in. Front desk staff is exceptionally friendly, informative and accommodating! While the room lacked any wow factor the front desk definitely made up for it!

We stayed 16 nights in October, on 10th floor with outlook to pool and river from balcony.Very happy with room service. didn't need it every day. Two Queen beds, cooking facility, compact bathroom but suited us. Central to all, we were out all day everyday and found the location convenient to local bus stop, shops, beach, church etc. Convenience shop on 6th floor, bbq facilities, laundry facilities and pool. We swam everyday in the pool, spa was good too. We enjoyed the variety of walks in all directions. Shuttle service available to shopping centre. Tourist information in foyer. We booked a north shore bus trip on the 2nd day and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Coming from Australia in gippsland, Victoria, we had a great stay for our first real holiday in 43 years. Encouraging our 5 adult children and partners to come over. Thankyou Island Colony and Paula

Good location, strange smells

The Aqua Skyline is in a good location and easy walk from to any Waikiki attractions. High up you'll feel and hear the wind all day and night, especially from the glass louvered windows on the balcony. Air-conditioning unit is also pretty old and very loud. The building itself has an odd damp smell about it which can be unpleasant, possibly due to many rooms actually being residences. Theres a shop, gym and pool area on level 6 which all looked decent enough. Overall though it served is purpose and the small kitchenette is handy for breakfasts.

Well priced central location

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment with 2 adults and 2 children. This apartment is fully equipped with a kitchen. It has washer and dryers onsite for a small cost. Beach only a short walk away. Abc stores close by. Great for a family stay for the price. Some noise of the trash shoot but not too bad. 28th floor, views of ocean, river and mountains.

So central.

We recently stayed at the Aqua Skyline at Island Colony Hotel in Waikiki. We used Air BNB for our months stay and booked two rooms, one on the 18 th floor and the other on the 14 th floor.Views from both rooms were very different, one over the Ali Wai canal and the other over the hotel pool area and city, both enjoyable and relaxing.Loved the pool area, large pool, nice and deep, plenty of sun loungers and several day beds which you need to book through the security team which is on the lobby level as you exit the lifts.The pool area also has a large jacuzzi and adjacent to this area is a bank of Webber barbecues, which also need to be booked through the security desk. Enjoyed shopping at the local supermarkets for bbq meat and salad items, and found cooking in the evening a really enjoyable experience.The hotel is couple of blocks back from Kalakaua Avenue, but is within a easy 25 minute walk to Ala Moana Mall, the walk to the main strip of Kalakaua Avenue is about five minutes, so not a chore at all.Very peaceful looking out over the canal, always some water activity going on especially early morning, evenings and weekends, lots of outrigger canoes etc.The daily room tariff reflects the somewhat dated decor of the hotel complex, but we did not mind this at all, our rooms were clean, comfortable with a kitchen, good sized lanai, main area indoors consisting of a queen size bed and couch which also doubles as a extra bed, bathroom perfect for our needs.There is a shop on the 6 th floor as you exit the lifts, recycling bins here for glass, plastic and aluminium, and a good sized laundry. The hotel gym and sauna is also located on this floor nearby.Rubbish shute at the end of each corridor is a easy way to get rid of rubbish from the room, each floor has this facility.For the price of the rooms that we had for our month, hotel is great, extra dollars to spend of clothing and the like, if you want to spend $600.00 a night, don't come here, far less than that by far, a comfortable and clean hotel with all amenities that we had hoped for.We would not hesitate to return, mahalo Olivier.
