Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We loved every moment of our stay. From meeting Ralph when checking in, to every single staff member at the Espacio, we could not ask for more. They were absolutely amazing and we can’t wait to return

Hotel's Favourite
This was our family's third trip to Hawaii and most definitely the best! The combination of service, luxury accommodations and location made this a highly memorable and relaxing vacation. We can't say enough about the attention to detail and service orientation of the team at Espacio. We will most definitely return, and we look forward to doing so. The most challenging part of our stay was our not wanting to leave!

I have never left a review for any hotel since I am a very picky person. But this is the first time I actually want to and took the time time give them a review since I feel anyone that likes attention to detail will definitely love this place and enjoy the automation and design of the suites here. The best hotel I have ever stayed in. Everything is at par to perfection. The staff is amazing and the cleanliness is detailed. Location is perfect. Right next to the beach. In the middle of Waikiki. Would highly recommend staying here.

If you read my previous reviews, you will see that service is really the #1 most important thing for me in a hotel... otherwise I may just as well stay in an AirBnB, honestly. ESPACIO has, without a single shred of doubt in my mind, the best team and the highest level of service I have ever experienced in 30+ years of traveling all over the world. Hands down. That's how good they are. The 9 apartments -- because they are really beautiful, spacious, extremely well appointed apartments -- are gorgeous and extremely well maintained; they feel absolutely brand new. Every single detail is impeccable. Even in other brand new properties you are simply not going to find this level of attention to the details; the bathrooms, for example, are unmatched by any property we have ever stayed in, and that includes many Aman and Four Season ones -- you're definitely not going to find anything like it in Hawaii, period. Because the rooftop pool is only available by reservation, and there are only 9 apartments, it's basically as good as if you had your own infinity pool in your apartment. Going back to the service, even the valet was impeccable... we never had to really wait for our vehicle, nor we had to wait in the front for the valet to take care of it upon our return. The best word to describe all of it: flawless. Now, some other reviewers have complained about the location: anywhere you pick in Waikiki it's going to be a compromise... thing is, Waikiki is not really that big and you can walk pretty much from one end to the other pretty easily. Others have complained about the breakfast: well, the "free" breakfast is nothing to write home about, but there are _so_ many options that you can just walk to... and there's a beautiful kitchen and many grocery stores nearby... so honestly it would be a waste of staff, space resources for Espacio to offer an elaborate breakfast. This is obviously a very unique property designed for a very specific demographic and it does what it's designed to do to perfection.

Do not tell too many people about this special place. Feels like home! Amazing service. Beautiful expansive rooms with great balconies with jacuzzis and sunset views. Could not ask for a better hotel in Waikiki. Walking distance to everything.

I hate writing bad reviews. But I try to keep all my reviews fair and genuine. Overall, a sub-par experience. Positives - every employee there is incredibly helpful and they do their best with what they’ve got. Negatives: 1. We used to stay at the Kahala, Halekulani, or Trump whenever we visited Waikiki. I have to say this section of Main Street is meaningfully worse. Within 3 min of walking in the alley behind the building, 8 out of the 10 people I walked past were either high or homeless. Also saw a drug dealer dealing in broad daylight. This is not an exaggeration. 2. The hotel is super small. One unit per floor and only 9 units. The rooms are tight and you feel like there are no amenities. You can schedule the pool for your own family, but the “pool” is maybe the size of 5 jacuzzis. 3. Breakfast is the worst I’ve had in North America. My prior worst was in Italy, but this was really sad. We went once and didn’t bother going the next two days. 4. Second day, pressed the “Clean room” button as we left at 10:30 am. The room was not cleaned six hours later when we returned. 5. When I checked in, I told them that I’d like to see if I can check out at 1 pm. They didn’t really give an answer, though they booked the return car at 1 pm. They also booked a surfing lesson for my kids from 9-11 am the day of our departure. When I returned after dropping off my kids at 9:30 am, they told me I need to be out by 11 am because someone is checking in at 4 pm. This is completely understandable because they really run a tiny operation (only 9 rooms). But it does raise the issue of a small operation. They have no wiggle room. I purposely didn’t want to stay at Trump this time around. But sadly I’d have to say I will not return to Espacio even if it was free. This side of the main street is REALLY BAD. No joke. There were homeless people laying on the ground within 20 seconds from the door every single day.

Everything was A+++++++ with this hotel. Every staff member was cordial, helpful, and sincere. I love the doormen, as they treated us like friends! The room: It was so spacious and the amenities were top notch! The bed was super comfy and the bathrooms were luxurious, even the blow dryer was DYSON! I was about to bring my Dyson but nice to know they had that as their standard hair dryer. The toiletries were the best quality and they offer free sunscreen! We were able to use the kitchen to make meals and even BBQed upstairs. The appliances were like what we had at home, super high end and made the stay comfy. The view is beautiful and the private jacuzzi was used every night, while every morning we used our private deck. One thing though, do not expect quiet, it is on a busy tourist street - we didn't mind this since the windows were well isolated. If you're looking to jacuzzi in your private deck in quiet, that won't happen. Location: TOP NOTCH! Walking distance to the beaches, shops, and restaurants. Mugen, the restaurant downstairs was such a memorable and delicious dinner. It's easy to get to places from here and they provide a car with free parking! Amenities: The pool and spa upstairs was super private, we didn't even see another guest when we visited. The view from the pool is stunning! We also felt covid safe with all the wipes and hand sprays. FYI, there's so many amenities, I can't list them all! EVEN SLIPPERS! Service: Best in industry. From greeting, housekeeping, service and doormen, they were all so gracious and kind. We love the friendly and sincere smiles. They also offered us the chairs and beach towels that made our beach visits so comfortable. It was superb! I can't rave enough about this place. I will be back!

World leading restaurant in building, gorgeous rooms with elegant style. An instagrammer's dream or a relaxing polished paradise. Hotel staff seemed out of practice and was not able to accommodate many of our requests, and were not able to accommodate some of the advertised amenities. Hopefully they will get back into the swing of things soon.

Having stayed in a Four Seasons property the night before I checked in to ESPACIO, my standards were high – and ESPACIO far surpassed them. From the moment I arrived to the time I departed, the entire staff provided a seamless experience that left me impressed over and over again. The hotel’s butler, Wesley, was more thoughtful than I could have imagined, arranging an incredible in-room breakfast that delivered on even the smallest of my preferences. Then there are the rooms – expansive suites that cover an entire floor complete with a roomy private balcony and outdoor Jacuzzi. I woke up to the most incredible view of Waikiki Beach. It’s amazing how you can feel so relaxed and at peace while situated in the middle an incredible, cosmopolitan city. Don’t miss the rooftop infinity pool (there is a spa on the same level) and onsite dining at Mugen – all very worthy of a visit. , I’ve never been to a hotel with more thoughtful, personalized service and amenities. Considering there are only 9 rooms, I feel very lucky to have secured a reservation and can’t wait to come back.
