This is an apartment building where a large number of suites are rented out privately so it can be a bit hit and miss on what you get depending on what the owners have done for upkeep and renovations. The location is great, it's in the heart of Waikiki and just 1 block away from the main street, Kalakaua. It...

Pros: Location is pretty convenient to a lot of places. Waikiki within walking distance, there is a mall nearby. Restaurants were pretty close. The view was great. As for the actual condo, it was clean, had all the basic required utensils and cookware, and much needed air conditioning. Biggest pro was there was assigned free parking. Cons: Water pressure in...

This place is simply foul. Outside of the nice lobby, everything else behind the scenes is last class. The pool/recreation area is in shambles, and the hotel staff seem put out they have to assist you in any way. Parking and elevator access are a joke as you can't access parking from the rooms; you have to stop at and...

One of many great places to stay in Waikiki if ever on a couples retreat! Friendly people and great service. Affordable hotel and only a walk away from the famous Waikiki beach! A must if visiting Honolulu!

The 1 bedroom we rented for the week was quite small with a little over 500 square feet. My family had four adults and this unit was simply too small. It may have been OK for a two people, but not for any more. The furniture was very outdated and worn and the carpet appeared to be in need of...

This is a condo/apartment/time share facility. The rooms were a bit dated but we did not spend a lot of time in the room with Waikiki only an easy 10 minute walk. We stayed her in 1989 and the furniture looks the same as then. Decent amenities, with an pool, fitness room and laundry. The fitness room had some exercise...

One bedroom with foldout in the lounge with full kitchen facilities and shower/bath. Made life so easy and the bed was better than my own! Right in the heart of Waikiki only 2 blocks to everything and perfect on the 11th floor to block out most of the street noise. Is it pretty, maybe not as pretty as some, is...

We stayed here for 11 nights and was great. It is very hard to find accommodation for a young family of 6. This was over our budget but did provide plenty of room. The apartment is huge. 2 large lanai and super amazing views (one of the ocean the other the city and mountains), large lounge\dining room, massive main bedroom...

We stayed in room 3207 in September 2016, and I was very disappointed. The room was advertised as a luxury apartment, but it was old and needed a makeover. The stove top only had one element that worked, the tap was loose, there were marks all over the walls, the airconditoners were that noisy that you couldn't leave them on...

This unit is an old beat up condo. It looks ok online but it has been so neglected. The property manager Ali'i Beach Rentals charges you $129.00 for a cleaning fee and the place was filthy. I took pictures. We didn't even have drinking glasses. I will say they brought us glasses the third day. I don't believe the place...
