Big value at contemporary hotel in central Waikiki

The new Aqua Waikiki Pearl is a totally refreshed and upgraded boutique-size hotel featuring large rooms at a reasonable rate. The hotel is located on a mellow side street, less than two blocks from Waikiki Beach and the area's best shopping and dining. Book a suite with a fully-stocked kitchen to maximize your dollar. Wi-Fi access throughout the hotel is available and is included in the Hospitality Fee. Two pets up to 40 pounds each are welcome.

Location

Aqua Waikiki Pearl offers a refreshing break from the revelry of Kalakaua Avenue. The hotel is situated in central-Waikiki on a quiet side street less than two blocks from the beach, shopping, dining and nightlife. The International Market Place souvenir bazaar is around the corner from the hotel.

Rooms

A petite midrise hotel, Waikiki Pearl offers 135 fully-renovated, smartly-tailored island-decor rooms to match almost any budget. Standard rooms start at 195 square feet and superior rooms jump to 451 square feet, accommodating up to four people. All accommodations have private balcony, except for standard rooms. One-, two- and three-bedroom suites feature full kitchens that include dishes and utensils.

Dining

Hang out at Legends sports bar in the hotel lobby with satellite TVs. Grab coffee and a croissant at Starbucks, adjacent to the hotel. Chili's is within a block, and countless other small and large eateries are within a 4-block radius.

Clean, friendly staff. I've had some bad experiences with hotels in Waikiki so I can say this is one of the better ones. Free wifi. This is a good affordable hotel if you're looking for something basic and nice.

Good location

We needed to stay out of our house while it was being fumigated. For the price, this place was great, plus they're pet friendly. The only issue was that they put us in a room right next to the elevator...and with people walking by every couple of minutes, our dog went nuts! The location is great, as it's near Legend's bar and Marukame Udon, one of the best udon restaurants in Waikiki. The room was clean, except for the used plastic knife our dog found underneath one of the beds. There is a microwave and mini fridge, so that was convenient. The place is not luxurious but it was fine for our needs for the one night. For the price, I would recommend it.

not a great choice

Very below average hotel. $25 per day parking was ridiculous, small parking lot so sometimes you have to park in a property two blocks away.

Great Price with NOT SO great location & vacation is all about LOCATION!

I stayed at this hotel a total of three times, not exactly sure what brought me back a third time besides the affordability factor and maybe a glimmer of hope of it being better than last time. Most recent stay I payed around $65/night, not bad for a hotel a short walk from Waikiki Beach BUT...this was and IS my last time. I stayed with my lovely wife who was a first timer in Hawaii. The location of this hotel is horrible, can't say anything better really...you have women selling themselves a few hundred feet away from the main entrance, people openly offering all kinds of drugs as you walk to the hotel and the NOISE, oh boy the noise. Delivery trucks with LOUD refrigerated trailers who have a tendency to pull up to the main entrance, park and the driver disappears for an hour or two...and this is at 5AM, GARBAGE trucks, the NOISE just echoes through the street the hotel sits on and there is nothing you'll be able to do to suppress it, NOTHING, BELIEVE ME when I say it, I've stayed here three times. The staff is WONDERFUL, very nice people who will go out of their way to make you happy, that you can't beat.

Comfortable with the lights on

The staff was excellent and very friendly. Had fun conversations with everyone. The Hotel is old but not aged, it is comfortable but not fancy. It was safe and close to everything we needed. We were out of the room all day and it was comfortable to fall a sleep in. Our room's Air conditioner was great and the room got to cold on a 70 degree setting. A ten minute stroll to the beach. Shopping and dining close. Great value for the family traveler on a budget.

Blazin Steaks is a hole in the wall two man operation recommended by hotel staff. Very few tables but good food in a styrofoam box for those who want cheap food. No ambiance but we ate good food cheap for Waikiki. Not for gourmets!

Nice place for the price

The staff at the hotel were very friendly and accomodating. Location is only 2 blocks from the beach so that is good. Huge room! However, a tad loud as we were on the side facing another building.

Friendly Staff

The staff made this stay at this hotel great. They were super friendly and helpful. We stayed for a week, the sheets could have been changed for often and also had to keep requesting for towels... But over all the fact that everyone was willing to accomodate and help was great. Staff also gave great tips about the area.
