Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel
- What's Included
Hotel location is a little bit further out but still only about a 10min walk to the centre of Waikiki. Rooms are a good size but very basic decor which I know is pretty much the norm for most Hawaii hotels...Bathroom however is small & old. We booked a partial ocean view room & was lucky enough to be on the diamond head side so we also have a nice view of diamond head! Overall the hotel is OK & we’d stay here again simply based on price but would prefer something abit closer in!
Fantastic location! Can't beat it! Do yourself a favour and make sure you do the upgrade to Seaview - it's worth every penny & that view is the reason you are in Hawaii in the first place ! The Aston Beach hotel is home to Tikis bar and grill which runs a happy hour between 2-5pm - score yourself USD$5 Blue Hawaii's, Mai Tai's & USD$3 local beers. Oh and their buffalo wings are amazing! Another cute feature of the Aston Waikiki Beach hotel is that they give you a little welcome beach bag which have a range of difficulties such as sunscreen, lip balm & aftersun - all of which you will use! They supply beach towels & chairs too! There is an ABC (all blocks covered) store which sells Hawaiian Nik Nacs & Food etc on both sides of the hotel - plus a Starbucks to the left as you walk onto the strip. You can hire surfboards & umbrellas directly on the beach in front of the hotel. And in my opinion are located on the best side of this strip!
Get the ocean front room, not the ocean view room and you will fall in love with this place, recommended for couple who want the best view of waikiki beach. Just steps away from waikiki beach. Will stay here again
We decided to change hotels as we did not like where we were staying so picked this one after reviews. So glad we did as the hotel is fantastic! It is just across the road from the beach but also has a lovely pool area with the Tiki's Bar & Grill situated at the end with great views of the beach. Close to bus stop for the Pink Trolley Line. The room we had was a bit small with the balcony a good size. Only downside in the room was the furniture. It was a desk with 2 wooden stools and that was it...not very comfortable sitting. Great view from the room though and the staff were friendly and helpful. Wifi was good. Beds were comfortable but had small pillows. The price was very reasonable considering we hadn't originally planned to stay here. The Tiki Bar & Grill is fantastic with great service and food...especially breakfast. They have live bands or solo singers weekends and drinks are a good price. Lot's of restaurants and bars nearby....check out Lulu's Sports bar just up from here...great bar! If we return to Hawaii we would stay here again but perhaps in a different room.
We just returned from a 8 night trip to Hawaii where we stayed at Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel (AWBH). We were a little concerned when arriving because we had read reviews of the place being outdated. While the reviews were correct, the location of the hotel made up for all the shortfalls - for lack of a better word. Our room was spacious and on the 25th floor. The bathrooms are outdated but were clean. The room meet our needs. The hotel staff worked very hard in keeping the place clean and everyone was super helpful and cheerful. The best feature of this hotel is it's location. It's steps away from the beach. There's also a bunch of restaurants of various price range in the vicinity which adds to the convenience factor. The hotel is also accessible by public transit and is close to Honolulu Zoo and Diamond Head. Our only negative expertise with AWBH was that we were surprised to see a $25/night transaction charge added at checkout - we were under the impression that this would only be a one time charge. We should have done our due diligence when reserving. Another minor nuance was the elevator system. You have to key the floor from outside before you enter - a bit of an odd system but seems to work - this did add to the wait times especially during rush periods. Overall our experience at AWBH was very pleasant and the hotel met all our needs and then some. Factor in the room rates and it'll be hard to find a better location in Waikiki. If you are a stickler about room appearances then stay at the Marriott across the street - but be willing to open your wallet. Mahalo to all the staff at AWBH for making our first time to Hawaii a memorable one. We miss you already!
