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. Located on Kalakaua Avenue, Waikiki's main shopping and dining street, Aston Waikiki Beachside sits amongst Waikiki's favorite attractions. This stylish hotel, priced to suit a modest budget, is also a member of the Green Hotels Association.

Unbeatable location for the price

Fantastic Price and Location. Its a older hotel with small rooms and a lot of charm. They need to work harder at cleaning. My Partial ocean view was fantastic it Looked right at the old Banyan tree, beach, and ocean. I will stay again.

Dissapointing.

Positives: Hotel is right on the beach Negative: We had prostitutes and a fight that broke out on our floor. Our last day we needed to check out late and were required to pay a $50 late checkout fee!! Absolutely ridiculous for a run down old hotel!

Great location for the price

Most of the time was spent outside the hotel, but a coffee maker would have been very good. Other rhan that, perfect for the price at that location on Waikiki Beach.

Good price, close to beach

Recent name change so van service couldn't find hotel. I had to get my itinerary to give them address. Hard to spot from street it is between Ed Hardy and ABC Store. My window had a view of the ocean and sand. There are no buildings in front of hotel so you have clear view of ocean and sand. Great location. All the stores and eateries are on that block. Zoo and Aquarium are within walking distance. Breakfast consisted of pastries, fruit, teas, coffees, and juices. It was good. To take public transportation walk about a block up to Kuhio street and catch the bus there. I would stay there again.

Aqua Waikiki Beachside

I was there on a couples vacation. The location was superb!! walking distance to everything in waikiki. however, the bathroom had mold the lamp shades were stained, the furniture was broken. But hey it is hawaii how much time do you really spend in your room. the price reflected the hotels shortcomings. the staff was great, especially the front desk clerk Lave. they were ready and able to tell you how to get anywhere and everywhere. it is a stones throw from the beach, but along with that it is very loud, so don't expect to sleep in or be going to bed early.

don't go to any of the big big resturants, the mom and pops places are just as good and half the price. If you can avoid beef, it is so expensive, and try a north shore shrimp truck!! 30 shrimp for $15!!!

Aqua Waikiki

Hard to find the hotel (little door opens to Waikiki and that's it!) and no parking attached. Also, first room didn't even have windows. Got upgraded to a room with a window that overlooked airconditioning unit. Not so bad for $75.00 I guess, but not exactly what was advertised either. Front desk was nice.

Awesome location. Good price. I

I stayed 5 nites for under 400 bucks in this Beachside facing hotel in Waikiki. My room was on the 10th floor and I had a very good view. This hotel had no pool or restaurant....but had an amazingly good location.

My review of Aqua Waikiki Beachside

The Aqua Waikiki Beachside Hotel had a wonderful view of the beach and was located in the heart of tourism and shopping. We walked to lot of places and the staff was extra nice. The rooms were a little small and the breakfast should have had more options.
