This hotel is in a great location--just a few blocks from Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head, and zoo. The hotel is an older hotel but well maintained. Rooms were clean, tidy, and average in size . The hallways are narrow. We had a room on the side of the hotel which overlooked the top of the next building. The back of...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 March 2017

I went back to Waikiki because it is my favorite place to vacation and get away. The weather is great, humidity is perfect and helps me breath easier, and the people at the Aqua Bamboo are always happy and helpful. I like to stay on the 12th floor, 1201, because it is quiet and has a great view of the...

We rented two regular hotel rooms with another couple. When we arrived they upgraded us to mini-kitchen rooms with two queen sized beds, a fridge, two burner glass cooktop and microwave. We used the fridge to store some drinks and food that we bought at the nearby ABC store. Everything in the kitchen was clean. I was prepared for some...

This hotel was perfect for our family of four. We have two teens and the space was so practical. We walked to the beach one block and had a blast. Nice hotel for the price! We went in Nov 2015. Everything is so expensive but Aqua hotels are more Affordable.

Ok, three of us stayed in the room, had stove, microwave & full size fridge, so that was good. We didn't really speak with staff as we were out most of the time, so can't really comment on them. Place is in need of an update, it is looking a little old & worn. Had a really noisy wall mounted...

The location is right in the middle of Waikiki, near the water and that's the only positive thing I can say. The room was disgustingly dirty. The staff was unhelpful and largely just didn't care about me the paying customer and my horrible experience. I couldn't figure out why until I spoke with the owner. Yeah, he's not a nice...

I normally am not the type to leave reviews, but this hotel and my stay there was the worst experience! First things first, we call the hotel that morning(4/20/17) to make a reservation for that night, checking out on 4/21/17. It was a one night stay, thankfully, as we were traveling around the whole island. We get to the hotel...

I like Honolulu. It's safe, people are friendly & whilst some aspects are a bit expensive, tourists can get good value for $s spent. We were placed in Aqua Bamboo as part of our cruise package, and having previously used up to date TimeShare resorts in the city, this was rather sub-standard. The pool area was comfortable & secluded, but...
