First room smelled of mold. Second room bathtub plugged up and had to move to third room
Close to beach, zoo, aquarium, and Diamond Head. Though its at the far end of the "strip" of hotels, resorts, and shopping.
Couldn't have been better!!! Great experience. Great location. Wonderful view. Flight out was delayed 12.5 hours so we had to stay another night. Hotel staff work fast to get us another room.
The walls are thin. You hear everything in the hall and room next door. Elevator system very inconvenient. The bathroom is very overdue for repairs and updating.
We had a wonderful stay at this wonderfully located hotel write next to a great kid friendly beach. Our daughter wanted to go across the street and swim most of the trip. We walked and enjoyed all the nearby sights. We definitely will stay here again in the future
Room was clean but had to call to get a chair in the room. Then it was a straight back. It is a good walk to eateries.
Hotel is dated. Our room had 2 double beds for 2 adults and 1 12 yr old. No microwave. Parking at hotel was 32.00 a day. Staff was great. Area is busy and expensive.
Looked like there were some updates to the room, with the exception of the bathroom. The sliding door to the balcony is an issue when there are high winds, creates a loud whistling noise since there is a gap. Otherwise, clean and convenient location, right across from the beach.
Had a great view from room. This hotel is in a good location. Beach is across the street buses pick up right outside hotel. Able to walk to restaurants and many shops.
Paid extra for an Ocean view room, was expecting a balcony we could actually sit on without a view of the roof next door
I enjoyed my stay, it was a little noisy and the bed couldve been more confy but, overall it was pretty good.
The Hotel is right across from the beach can't get better than that. The Hotel provided towels and chairs for the beach which make it nice and pleasant. The staff is great very friendly and helpful. My only issue was with the smell of our bathroom, I felt like the shower curtain had a smell to it and the toilet was NOT scrubbed completely clean. I'm a nut for cleaning so I noticed this right away. I'm not much of a complainer so I did not say anything to the front desk I guess if it really bothered me then I should have said something.
Overall very good but not happy about extra charge for Wi-Fi use. When quoted a price I expect this to be included. It comes off as a sleazy way to offer a low price but make it up on an "extra" that everybody uses. I will not return for this reason alone.
Just across from waikiki beach and very convinient.
Clean decent room, nice people but the resort or hotel fee is kind of silly because there is no special service and the cost of parking is so much that I will probably not return. Kinda like been there - done that.
Our family of 4 stayed at the Aston Waikiki for 8 days over the holidays. This was our first time in Hawai'i. The location could not be beat. We had an ocean front room. I think we all spent the majority of our hotel time on the balcony. The service here was top notch, from check in to housekeeping. All were friendly, smiling.
Stayed here for about $200 per night around Christmas time. It's across the street from the beach on the far Diamond Head side of Waikiki. We liked the location because you can park at the zoo across the street ($1 per hour) or even find free parking at Kapiolani Park or Kapahulu Ave (compared to $30/night valet at hotel!). It's also easier to access by car than other hotels that are deep within Waikiki's traffic. The hotel is older but decently maintained, and the staff is nice. We enjoyed the welcome gift (you just have to sign up for their rewards program in advance and you get a bag of sunscreen and other beach essentials), and we also enjoyed the partial ocean view - again, a free upgrade we received because we signed up for the Aston A-List rewards program in advance. We were less happy with the AC in the room. We either froze because it was too cold, or got really hot as soon as it turned off. Also, the rooms in the outdoor hallway (we were in 803) are in a wind tunnel so you can hear loud wind at all hours (putting a towel at the bottom of the door helped). One plus was that the king sized bed was firm and comfortable. Overall we were satisfied with the value of the room in the high season, the location, and the service/staff. It wasn't luxurious and you can definitely tell it's older, but it was totally fine for us and comfortable overall.
It is a $40 taxi ride from airport, $2.50 local bus #20 or #42 or $12 shuttle. We enjoyed staying at this location over Christmas. Great food options around the hotel. The zoo and lots of shopping mall within walking distance. The room appeared clean but outdated. I saw a little critter in the bathroom when I turned the light on at night so we never left our bags open or open food in the room. A exhaust fan in the bathroom would have been nice as well. Be careful about leaving lanai door open because pigeons fly high. Hotel staff will only direct you to tour desk if you are asking about getting around to attraction. The city bus will get you everywhere but it will take you longer. Overall it was a pleasant experience and I would stay here again.
Hotel has a great location, right on Waikiki. Asked for a kingsize bed and was given a room with two full size beds, not even queen size beds. When I called the front desk they immediately found us a room in the older section of the hotel with a kingsize bed. Manager wrote us a note apologizing and sent some candy to the room. Best salad I had in the two weeks I was traveling was at the Wolf Gang Puck Express downstairs.
Good location but the extra charges are excessive $25 a day for Internet and $30 a day for valet parking not including taxes and tipping for the valet drivers The streets and sidewalks in this area are full of homeless drug addics.
