The decor, the incredible cocktails at the poolside bar, the food, and the soundtrack!

Great staff, great location and super cute decor. My only issue was the size of the shower. It was the smallest shower I’ve ever seen. I’m 5’0 and petite and I could not turn around or bend over in the shower. Also the towels left lent all over my body. If you are okay with a mini-shower, I would definitely recommend.

Very clean and friendly.

The property was outdated and not clean. There were small bugs all around our room. We had to switch rooms and it was still a problem When we switched they didn't have the size room I originally booked so I got stuck in a smaller room with two small kids. No iron in the room. No coffee. The bathroom had hair in it that didn't belong to me. To cleaning service Not enough towels, not enough toiletries. I had to call downstairs to keep replacing things in our room. I didn't have a good experience and won't stay at this hotel again.

I didnt like the rooms that are connected you can hear everything thats not good so if you spend your time here get a room that sits by itself and everything else would be ok and parking lot is small and they charge for parking

Excellent area by the International Market Place

Aloha Yami. Thank you for your review. With any issues we try to resolve them as soon as they happen. We weren't able to replace your original room type but we hope it was comfortable to be in a bug-free room. For the other issues I hope we took action in a timely manner. Irons are available upon request. We did away with coffee machines in the room because we now have a Cafe at the front desk. We will forward these review to our staff so we can make improvements where we need them. Mahalo!

Aloha Alfredo! Thank you for your review. Yes, the rooms with the connecting doors don't block as much noise as the solid walls do. In these situations we are happy to move you to a different room. I hope we were able to offer you that. We have a very small parking lot on property but offer several different parking options for our guests. And like all hotels in Waikiki, we do have a parking fee. It's always our pleasure to have you as our guest. We do hope you consider us in the future. Mahalo!
