This hotel is not worth the price. The musty stench from corridor hits you the minute the lift doors open. Rooms are dark, gloomy and dingy. Toilet walls and bath tubs feels slimy. All-in, an awful experience. Only pro is that it is centrally located, with bus stop on its doorsteps. It also means traffic noise throughout the night.

Our second stay at this property and I can't thank the staff enough for the superb customer service they provide. They all seem to love their jobs and their enthusiasm shows in their friendliness and service. The front desk manager, Anna has been wonderful to us on both visits. Other outstanding employees were Ricardo, Cammy, Peter and Haley. We had...

Room was clean, hotel is close to Waikiki Beach (5-10 minutes walk) and the service was really exceptional. We saw Qili at the front desk multiple times and she was very sweet and always helpful. The beds were very comfortable. Good breakfast with eggs, bacon, miso soup, cereal, yogurt, pastries and bagels.

We are light sleepers and honeymooners who were flying in from the other side of the world. So we were very glad that the...
