Aqua Bamboo Waikiki

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is close to everything. Our room had a kitchenette with a cook-top, that was well stocked. It had pots, pans, dishes, cups, utensils, toaster, even dish soap. They also loan out beach towels at the front desk. I was very comfortable at my stay here.

Nice location. Studio kitchen and laundry is a plus. There is no ventilation in bath and the room has a strange smell. Location is awesome.

I enjoyed the stay with the great services and friendly and helpful staffs (especially, one staff who worked at night when I was in Oahu) for the price that I paid for. Also I liked about the great location!

Hotel was in an excellent location. Did not need car to move around. Very close to the beach. Very Clean and modern room. A little expensive but worth the money. Staff was very helpful. Will definitely book again when in Waikiki.

The hotel looks a lot different from pictures on the website. The hallway smells horrible. The serivce was nice. The room was ok and got some forks and bowls. The forks and bowls were dirty. They weren't even washed. Housekeeping would come in the room around 8&9 in the morning, which my friends and I were still sleeping and they just came in the room. When we told them come back later they were giving us attitude.

The hotel staff were very responsive. The location is good, being a block off the beach - not in the high-rise tourist area. Had a garage for rental car, 24-hr wake-up call etc. No internet access in room, had to pay in lobby. Nice little pool - great for kids. No breakfast but plenty of places nearby, also for dinner.

Great place to stay and great staff except Lokahi avoid speaking to him, ask to speak with someone else if you have a problem. Great location but Parking is a problem at times.

It is located within 4 minute walking distance to Waikiki beach. Check out the pizza truck that is one block down with wood fire pizza.

The room was a little small and the shower made some crazy noises, but overall, for the value and the amount of time we spent in the room...it was well worth it! It's within walking distance to a lot of the beach action in Waikiki and the staff was very friendly.

Good location to everything! Nice staff, room was very clean and great for the price!

Parking is next door at the pacific monarch. The most dangerous parking structure I've ever been in. Not worth the $25 a day. Walking into the hotel lobby, they made it smell like a weird mix of tiger balm and Chinese medicine. The staff are very friendly and helpful.The elevator was a tiny little thing that smelled weird in the same way with tacky bamboo and carpet walls. The hallway was cramped and small. The room was alright, chipped furniture was depressing. The a/c is really loud. It only works if you put your room key in AND leave it there. We couldn't figure it out at first and felt so dumb when maintenance came and showed us haha. They have a microwave and some plates/silverware. There's something wrong with their balcony doors, you could hear all the sounds of the street even when the door is closed. It does come with a breakfast but I didn't try it out. Overall, great staff, but shady looking, shoddy, run down hotel

Everything was perfect. Liked the decor and comfort

Smaller hotel...you get more personal customer service. Rooms are cleaned daily. Hotel in a nice location central in Waikiki. Not fancy...but fits the bill.

All staff we encountered was great! Hotel is in need of upgrades, but location is great (within 2 blocks of the beach). Would stay again.

My favorite hotel in Oahu! Great staff and location

The first night's room selection was a bad room with awful view of someone else's private apartment's dirty balcony. The room assigned smelled musty. Then we got another nicer room with. Rollaway for my son which sagged in the middle badly. The third time we transferred , they gave us a nicer view with two comfortable double beds and we were happy finally on the third day of stay . Staff customer service was excellent! Convenience to beach was ideal.

it was noisy at night since it locates on a busy street. the sound of A/C was worse. and can't connect WIFI in the room which was the worst point of the hotel. you can have it at the lobby and pool, though. other than that, the price and location are great.

The hotel has everything I needed for the getaway. Perfect location and great stuff. I needed a light bulb to be changed, they did it the next hour.

I chose this hotel by reading the reviews, and, it turned out better than I anticipated. The hotel is close to many stores, restaurants and the beach. There is no restaurant at the hotel, but, there is a good choice within a short walking distance. Internet is available in the rooms but it is not WI-FI. WI-FI is in the lobby.

The first night was noisy with street noise. We were going to be moved to a higher floor but then ended up moving hotels altogether. Some of the staff were really nice and friendly. The manager was not pleasant at all to deal with. It was a bad start to our holiday but we moved to a great hotel with wonderful staff who took care of us! We would definitely book another stay at the Park Shore Hotel!
