Aqua Palms Waikiki
Ranked #58 of 84 Hotels in Honolulu
Reviewed 8 July 2012

Just got back and had a great time! Understand that this is not the Ritz. Good budget place to stay and it's a short one block walk to the beach. We didn't. Get a ocean view but also didn't have all the street noise. Stayed on the 8th floor with mountain views and yes some buildings. The room they gave us first didn't have a balcony and they happily switched us to one that did. We enjoyed eating breakfast and playing cards on the balcony. The maid service was excellent with fresh towels each day. All the elevators worked and we didn't see all the drunks and prostitutes we had read about. The ABC sores will be your best friend and the mall and Walmart are a short walk away. The only thing weird was that our rooms sloped to the inside of the hotel, not sure why the floor wasn't level. Overall we had a great 4th of July in Honolulu!

Stayed here twice - liked it less this time. Quite tired, but ok. Right across the road from the Hilton Hawaiian Village, so can wander across for the fireworks, or down to the beach. A walk to Ala Moana shopping centre, or can take the bus out the front to Ala Moana or down to Waikiki. Free wi-fi in the lobby, coin laundry. The included breakfast at the IHOP wasn't bad. Room included a coffee maker with coffee, along with microwave and fridge.

Beds are comfortable, room size adequate and things seem clean. Elevators failed to work once during my week-long stay. Hotel staff seem friendly and helpful. Location is nice - walkable distance to waikiki and the ala moana shopping center, without being too busy. Haven't tried the pool, which looks very small. Too bad wifi only works in the lobby. The hotel breakfast may seem gross to non-Americans: it's extremely high in calorie and everything is soaked in butter and sugar... No fruits or fibers, all carbs.

Great location, great staff, clean rooms,good rates. Noise on street side can be a problem if you are a light sleeper. Motorcycles are the worst. Was on 11th floor. Would stay here again. Nice reception on Thur. nights.

Room Tip: Street side has best view, a little more noise. Higher up the better.

Aloha Traveler342:

Isn't it nice to be SURPRISED!

Mahalo for taking the time to share your comments about your recent stay with us.

I'm always delighted to hear positive comments about the property and in particular our staff.

Our Thursday Manager's reception is well received by all of our guests. The Coleman Brother's do a wonderful job of entertaining us with their hawaiian music and they have even had some additional family members joining in and dancing the hula for us as well!

All of the staff and management hope that you will visit us again on a return visit!
