Exotic beachside hotel priced for value

The Aston Waikiki Beachside features a taste of Hawaii's Asian element through exotic furnishings and artwork from around the world. Original style is matched by grand, panoramic views of Waikiki Beach and the Pacific Ocean from many rooms.

We enjoyed our stay

We were here for eight nights and enjoyed our stay immensely. Front desk staff always helpful. We had neighbors on a Saturday night who were excessively noisy and rude. They were quickly added to the hotel's "not welcome" list. If we had a question, the front desk either helped out or they took the time to find the answer for us.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Right outside hotel, an ABC store to provide snacks, souvenirs or even a quick meal at reasonable prices. Many other stores, all price ranges, very close as well.

Affordable for younger adults!!

This hotel is perfect for younger people on a budget. It's right across from the beach, and on the main strip where a lot of awesome restaurants, and shops are located. The staff are very helpful and friendly...and one guy even plays his ukulele at the front desk during the day. If you really don't care too much for details, or have all the amentities that other hotels have, then this place is for you!

Excellent location with a bargain price

This is the seventh year I have stayed at this property. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My room was remodeled and is greatly improved. I had an ocean view room on the 3rd floor. I was disappointed that the hotel no longer has the continental breakfast; but many of the larger hotels don't have them either. The location is exceptional. If one is looking for luxury, this hotel is not the place. It is, however, an older boutique hotel with Asian decor and quite unique.

Great Value

The location for this place can't be beat, for the great price. It's right across the street from the beach, a couple of blocks from the International Marketplace. The rooms are a little shabby and lack extras that you might take for granted, such as a clock or a coffee maker, but overall our room was comfortable. We had a partial ocean view room, from which we could enjoy a nice view of the beach from bed. Next time we might step up to the full ocean view rooms because they have balconies directly facing the ocean. Being able to check out towels for the beach each day was very convenient. The continental breakfast was a little sparse and only available from 7:30-8:30, but it was nice to have a muffin and some fruit to start the day. Would surely stay there again and recommend it as a good bargain hotel in a great location.

Location over Fluff

This is a great choice if you want to be in the heart of waikiki without paying an arm and a leg. Aqua Beachside has friendly staff and a perfect location in an older hotel. It's not a 5 star hotel, but that wasn't what we were looking for. This hotel was great, we will stay there again! Character, Location, Friendly Staff, that's what you get here.
