Ilima Hotel

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Not enough parking. Room was old. Like early 80s. Smelled old. Mildew in the tub. This is only an upgrade from Motel 8. Kinda reminds me of an Army billet for transient Soldiers. Not many hotels will have a hot water heater in the closet.

Woke up at 4:40 AM by the garbage truck emptying dumpsters right next door. Also there is a whiskey tango bar one door down and the drunks outside smoking cigarettes and yelling until 1 in the morning. I wouldn't recommend this place if you are trying to get a restful sleep. The rooms are old and need a remodel.

-Large room for double bed with kitchen -Beds were comfortable -Wifi is available but it does not work -Plenty of parking spaces but it is on the small side for mid size car -Hotel is about 5-8 minutes walk to Waikiki beach -Hotel staff were friendly

Great location, friendly staffs, clean well conditioned hotel.

Free parking is unheard of in Waikiki! The rooms are really good size and have a decent kitchen set up. Would be perfect for travelers wanting to cook some meals. Rooms could use some updating, but they are clean and a great deal.

This spot had free parking and was only a few blocks walk to the beach and was a great price. Room has tons of room a fridge and microwave which was handy for leftovers.

Reasonable price, planty of room size and facility. Hoped that air conditionor should be more silent.

Everything is excellent! Very close to beach and center of Waikiki, also close to major 2 shopping centers, free parking is a plus! The staff are very nice, they allow us late checkout by 1.5 hours to fit our plane schedule. They also provide beach towels as many as you want. Facility are suitable for your need, air conditioner, coin washer & dryer, hot spa..... The only little complains is shower room water is not hot enough.

Very comfortable hotel and at 5mn of Waikiki beach.

Close to beach [3 blocks]. Near lots of shopping and dining. And no fee for self-parking. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Easy walk to beach, restaurants, shopping and the zoo. If you are more ambitious you can jog to Daimond Head, my wife did. If driving there's good and free parking, important in Waikiki. Also driving access to other areas of the city is easy.

Good location without being on the beach. Good parking & great staff.

The main reason I chose the Ilima Hotel was the free parking for my rental car. In the bargain you get a hotel that's just off Kuhio Ave. where you can find anything you will need. And only a couple of blocks from Kalakaua Ave. where all the high end stores are. The Ilima Hotel is not a high end, fancy and expensive hotel on Waikiki beach. It's a well maintained older hotel and a very good value.

Amazing staff - courteous, prompt, caring. Hotel was within 2 blocks of the beach. Room was massive and included a full kitchen. The hotel had few perks and there wasn't any coffee packs included with the in-room coffee maker. Next time I am in Oahu, I'm staying at this hotel.

Staff was amazing- timely, courteous, and knowledgeable. Room was massive, and included a full kitchen and an accessible balcony. Unfortunately, our friends were staying at the hotels closer to Queen's beach so we did a lot of walking. Had that not been the case though, this hotel is perfectly positioned near the international market and the upscale boutiques. My family and I will make a deliberate effort to stay here again.

Great for overnight. Clean, lots of amenities and would work well for longer stays too. Cooking facilities available, big fridge, good stove. No coffe without bringing your own, but good maker if you do.

We were there for our vacation. The hotel was very near the International Market, and a few minutes walk to Waikiki beach and the other stores.Staff was very friendly and accomodating;our room was large (compared to other hotels), and the housekeeping staff kept it clean daily. Although the hotel was dated and could use some renovations, it was a nice place to stay at.

everyone in the hotel was very helpfull and made you feel very much at home and not as a quest.

Nice location for shopping and restaurants, a little far from the beach. Loved the free parking. The hotel is showing it's age, the room was clean and the staff was friendly.

This is a very good bargain for the price. Clean, convenient and centrally located.
