My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in room 504 as the start of a 2 week vacation/ wedding destination for our daughter. The apartment we rented wasn't available yet. It was ridiculously noisy in the early mornings so ear plugs are necessary. I believe it's all garbage trucks making the noise. The outdated room was immaculate and...

The unit is self contained but very dated. The bathroom is clean, and spacious. There is a stove and a small efficient kitchen, but it needs extensive upgrading. The airconditioning, although adequate, is noisy. A good secure key actuated elevator is a good plus. The price for a Waikiki stay is excellent, and there are lots of food sources nearby....

Location was excellent; only 2 blocks from the beach. Hotel is surrounded by nicer, newer properties. This hotel is old but it was clean and served the purpose quite nicely for us. Very good overall value. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.

My second time here and it was even better. Cheerful, comfortable, private, all that was needed from our week in Hawaii. The balcony was very much appreciated (my boyfriend and I are smokers) and we delighted in having a place where we could enjoy our drinks, the sunshine and not be moaned at by non smokers. The beds were comfortable,...

The location of Waikiki Prince is so good that within 2 min walk distance you could reach beach, store and restaurants and everything. The staff of the hotel is nice and ready to offer help anytime. The hotel can help to store your luggage with a little fees while other 3 star hotels in Waikiki do not. We are satisfied...

The hotel is scheduled for a revamp, which will be helpful. But for someone on a tight budget, it's the best. It's close to the beach, has a great central location, it's on a quiet street. We didn't use the kitchenette, but for someone who wants to save, there is a grocery nearby, so you'll be set.

The place was in a great location and it was fairly quiet. But the room could be more clean. The room was equipped with a little kitchenette, a desk and a table, a double bed and single bed. Plenty of space for one person. It was also nice to have a little balcony.

I loved the location of your hotel(right next to Waikiki beach) and a baby kitchen where I can cook whatever I want. Staff was friendly and responded kindly to my calling when I returned from Big Island late at night.

Hotel is located in a central location. Not far to walk to Waikiki beach we could see the beach from our balcony. Room was clean and tidy. Having the kitchenette with a fridge was handy. You can pick up beach towels from reception so no need to pack one or buy one.

We rented a studio for two nights before we left on our cruise. The room was clean and comfortable. Having a refrigerator and microwave was also convenient. The staff was very helpful, allowing us to check out a little later on Saturday so we could connect with our cruise boarding. The hotel has some age on it, but they are...
