It was very nice and close to

Everything was very nice. Friendly front desk staff.

We stayed at the Waikiki Banyan 14 years ago and thought we’d give it another try this visit to HI. Overall, stay was pleasant in the 1 bedroom kitchen. The building is a bit outdated but room was comfortable. Saw a few roaches in the kitchen area. Beds and bath area were clean. Convenient, only a block away from the beach.

The staff was accommodating, the elevators were quick and the rooms were spacious. Kitchen was awesome with plates, silverware and pots/pans. We loved our stay here and the price was great.

Location was good... one long block up from the beach

The front desk, security and housekeeping staff were very nice and helpful. The mini mart worker was very unfriendly and in fact rude. The location is ok but convenient and close to the beach. Bikes are right in front of the property to rent. The lobby is nice but the rooms and hallways need remodeling. The mattresses in our room were very uncomfortable. They felt like the mattress was 50 years old and the pillows were completely flat. Even though we still enjoyed the stay I would not stay here again.

The room was great. But the hot tub was always broken and the playground was closed most of the time.

Hotel was very close to the beach and shopping area. The room was decent enough with a complete kitchen. Yes, the property is on the older side but the price comparison to the other hotel was good. The wait for the elevator could be annoying sometimes because one was not functioning.

Booked months in advance thru Orbitz. Upon checking in, the receptionist said they are full and have to move us to a sister hotel due to new government legislation to limit guests. Did not receive any prior notification regarding the transfer neither from them or Orbitz. What an unexpected surprise especially for our first ever trip to Hawaii.

Although the property may be a bit outdated it served our family size well. We absolutely loved being here! Thank you for all the Aloha during our Vacay!

It is fit all my family need, good location. good service. need staff to teach you how to use the cable TV.

Tennis and basketball quart. Need way better beds.

CONS: 1. the room was very dated 2. one of the lamp shades was hanging on for dear life 3. we called for towels 2x & never received it 4. we were supposed to get a room w/ a queen bed & a sofa bed & we just got the queen bed w/ just a regular sofa 5. the tv only faces the living room & cant be viewed at all from the actual bedroom PROS: 1. parking was only $80 for the entire week (7days) 2. AC was nice & cold 3. full kitchen 4. 2 blocks from Waikiki Beach 5. close to Kalakaua & Kuhio with all the restaurants & shops 6. the view of the city was awesome (stayed on the 23rd floor) 7. elevators came fast Ive stayed at Banyan before & that room was amazing, but this time around the room was ehhhh..so very outdated & was kinda “ghetto” but it was ok for something i got last minute. I would stay there again if i was able to get a room in Tower 1 (facing the beach) or a renovated/updated room. I rate this stay 3/5, but my 1st time I stayed here i rated it 5/5.

The property wasn't as it was described in pictures! Everything was old and dirty,there was holes in the couches,the carpet was wet! The stove was from 60's

FRONT DESK WAS VERY FRIENDLY. EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT. THE ROOM WAS SPACIOUS ENOUGH AND LOVE THE OUTDOOR POOL DECK AREA,, LOTS TO DO.... SECURITY WERE KIND AND POLITE.....PRETTY SAFE PLACE TO BE

Aloha, thank you for taking the time to submit a review. We are always looking to improve our guest experience & appreciate all feedback received. We are delighted to hear that you we were happy with your accommodations, but saddened to hear about the issues you experienced with the hot tub. Unfortunately this area falls under the management of the building association & there was nothing we could do to expedite the repair process. We hope that this will not detour you from visiting us again in the future. Mahalo,
