Great Location!

The reason I chose this condo was because it had a kitchenette and two queen size beds. I was bringing my 18 & 22 year old children and anything less would not work. I am use to staying in two bedroom villas since I'm use to staying in timeshares. When you first walk into the reception area, you'll notice it outdoors but covered. It was very nice. Check in was easy. There was a problem because our second room for my sister and nephew was not next to ours. Because these are rented condos, you are not guaranteed rooms, only views. In other words, if you thought you were getting a two queens, city view with only two may get a king with city view. That's what happened to my sister. But the next day, she was switched to a two queen bedroom. But, we still were not together. I was on 31st floor and she was on 37th. I will say, the view was excellent. We got the view of the mountains and the ocean in the distance. We were only two blocks back from the main street and smack dab in the middle of EVERYTHING. This is the best location for pick ups for most activities. No need to have a car. We used uber (which was reasonable) for everything we felt was not in walking distance. Although...most things are within walking distance. The pool was closed most of the time we were there but we didn't care. We jam packed our trip with activities that included the beach. We walked to the beach which took 10 minutes due to the lights. My fridge did not work the first night but it was replaced the next morning. The elevators were hot and the hallways to get to your room was a little sketch but, not enough to deter us. Again, not something I'm use to. The bathrooms were tiny. I'm 5' 8 1/2" and I barely fit under the shower. My other family members could not fit. It's made for a way shorter person. They do have laundry facilities on-site which is really nice. But aside from that, we really liked staying there and would stay again if the budget didn't allow us to stay elsewhere.

Friendly, safe, great rate

I stayed here for a great price! If I were to stay in Honolulu again I wouldn't dismiss this hotel. The lobby area is beautiful and airy with an amazing view. Easy access to be picked up/dropped off by UBER or taxi. Pros:Easy access to shopping, restaurants Convenient walk to beachView from my penthouse was AMAZING!Live person in lobby specializing in excursionsShort walk to the canalFriendly, helpful staffAlways felt safeGreat price Cons:Mixed use buildingNot ON the beachOlder building in need of updating Window unit AC (but cooled well)

Pool closed, Poor Service,never stay here

I booked this hotel on 22 June because it had a reasonable pool only to find on arrival it had been closed since 16 June.Its still closed even though the web sites will not tell you.The air conditioning hardly works took several hours to cool the room. This is an old hotel and it shows. There were no glasses in the room which the staff disputed until they searched the room. This is an old hotel that should be avoided. I was overcharged and despite two requests for details and a formal complaint I have had no reply.

Excellent service

We stayed at this hotel for 20 + days and we really loved it / 2 adults and a 5 & 2 yrs old kids, we got a 1br suite on a high floor corner room with balcony facing pool/ diamond head and living room sliding window towards beach (open all doors the breeze is amazing). Nice room comfy bed n practical kitchenette. The staff is awesome, everyone is so friendly but the room service staff is the most friendly and helpful ever (Desiree and Mar are amazing!) Mar even brought over some chocolate covered macadamia for our little girl's bday..! That was so sweet!!The hotel is perfectly located only 2 blocks from Kalakaua Ave (Royal Hawaiian Center and Waikiki Beach). Not a bad walk for a family with kids. Great swimming pool and hot tub. Also, they do have a convenient mini-mart on site. Don't forget EVERY TUESDAY they have a roof top managers reception- nothing better than enjoying the most amazing views of Waikiki (40+ floors high) while sipping on a cocktail. Catered by the most attentive, servicing staff. Will definitely stay here again!!

good location

This highrise codo-hotel is in the centre of waikiki on the alawai canalIt is one block to the local bus and two blocks to the beachThe pool area on the 6th floor is large with plenty of lounges, although currently closed for maintenance you can still enjoy the deck and hot tubElevators are reasonably efficient if you avoid dinner hourThere are very nice barbecues on the recreation deck and a laundryMost units are renovated but a few still remain with original furnishings etc.If you are booking with air bnb beware that many owners call the studio units one bedroom. Only the corner units are really one bedroom
