Million-dollar views for budget-conscious visitors

For the visitor looking to roll out of bed and onto the sand without breaking the bank, the Waikiki Circle is ready to accommodate. Located across the street from Waikiki Beach on a stretch unblocked by other hotels, access to the beach is quick. The hotel's unique circle shape means a good chance for amazing ocean views from your private balcony. Expect friendly service and modest, island-style rooms. Borrow mats, floats and other beach gear from the hotel. Parking is available for an added fee.

Highlights
  • Oceanfront rooms offer views of a lifetime
  • Borrow beach equipment from the hotel, including beach mats, rafts and chairs
  • Free beach pail and shovel for kids


Location

The Waikiki Circle sits on Waikiki's most happening shopping and dining strip across the street from the best stretch of sand and swimming on Waikiki Beach. The Honolulu Zoo, Waikiki Aquarium and 200-acre Kapiolani Park are a 10- to 15-minute walk from the hotel.

Rooms

Rooms have tastefully simple island style with an emphasis is on the view. Catch glimpses of sea or wake up to in-your-face, panoramic ocean views from your private balcony. Flat-screen TV, refrigerator, free daily newspaper, air conditioning and high-speed Internet (fees apply) ensure coziness.

Dining

The hotel's central location means an abundant selection of restaurants in every direction. For a local-style plate lunch under $10, try Hyatt on the Beach one block away.

Great location and clean

The location is wonderful. Right across from the beach. The snorkeling about a 100 yards away was awesome. The protected swimming area across from the hotel is comforting to protect from ocean currents. A pool would have been nice. The rooms aren't luxury, but the price was a bargain compared to others in the area. I would recommend it for the budgeting traveler.

Stay on the main strip. Once you get off of the main strip there are some shady characters. Diamond Head State Park is a must and only about a mile away.

Across the street from beach, great location, but hotel is very old and needs updating. It was clean and staff helpful but too much $ for what you get. You are paying for location, location, location

take the bus if going further than a short walk, pays to learn the simple tansportation system, much cheaper than rental, very limited parking on island.

Waikiki nov 2010

I was in a pre renovation room. It was just what I needed, Clean bed, tv and shower. Everything worked and the view from the room was awesome. The new rooms should be really nice. The renovations were restricted to 9 am to 5 pm and there was only one really noisy day. I was there 8 days. I would go back again. Centrally located, I only used a cab once. Walked to everything I needed.

Super location, going back again

At this particular hotel they assign rooms on a daily first come first serve basis. If you're not happy with your room they give you the option of moving to an available room and they assist you with moving your belongs. The room was small and cozy, very clean, and the customer service was excellent. The hotel is very nice for the price you pay. We plan to stay again at the same hotel and would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a basic hotel. The only amenities that were available to us was a safe, refridgerator, and a blowdryer. Comfortable bed, excelent housekeeping. The view is to die for from the front rooms and the location couldn't get any better, it's right by the tour bus pick up, continental coffee every morning at the front desk. 3 minute walk from room to beach.

Perfect Balcony View

Even though the room was kind of small, you couldn't beat the view! The staff was helpful in finding things, handing out extra beach towels, etc. The location was great--easy access to pick up points for tours, shops, and affordable places to eat. Being able to open the balcony door and sit outside looking out over the beach and the ocean really made the trip wonderful.

More Than Expected

We booked the Aston Circle for a one nights stay in Waikiki before we headed back stateside after a Maui/Kauai holiday and did so primarily because it was the lowest price with decent ratings. To say the location is perfect would be an understatement, which is the second reason we chose this hotel. The rooms are very small, but nicely appointed for the size. We selected 2 beds instead of a double and are glad we did. The wife tosses and turns, so having our own beds was nice for the night. Nice desk area with coffee maker along with TV and PS3 which we did not use. The bathroom is very small and the shower is the size of a phone booth, so if you're on the large size, find another hotel. We upgraded to a full ocean view (it is a circle, so some have full, partial, glimpse, no ocean views). We sat on the balcony watching people surf and walk on the main road below and you could tell people were jealous of our awesome perch. If you need the Ritz or Four Seasons, pass. If you need a great location, small room, great service you will not be disappointed. Aloha and Mahalo.
