Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel room is very uncomfortable. Mattress, linens felt like sleeping on paper. No comforter. Bathroom was tiny and very outdated.

The room was noisy whenever the wind would blow. It sounded like a whistle and made it hard to sleep. Also the toilet had a drop throughout the night that caused to have to close the bathroom door in order not to hear it while we slept

What can you say? Beautiful views, across the street from the world's greatest beach, and Tiki's and LuLu's downstairs for dining excellence. I will never stay at another Waikiki hotel other than the Aston. And the king sized bed, well I just wanted to bring it home on the plane. Very comfy and clean. Mahalo!

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.

Aloha!!! Mahalo for staying with us and for sharing your experiences with other travelers. We appreciate and welcome all feedback good or bad in order to improve our services. We're sorry you heard people in the hallways and nearby neighbors due to our thin walls. Yes, our elevator system does take time getting used too, selecting your floor outside of the cart is not normal. Our system was built for speedier services for guest who are going to certain high floors will all ride in one cart and for guest going to middle floors will ride in another cart. I am happy to announce we are currently working on an improvement plan with our Owners, focusing on our bathrooms. We apologize for the inconvenience this caused you.
