What a great boutique hotel located away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki yet 15 minute walk to the center of Waikiki. Beautiful and clean decor this is a true gem in Honolulu. If you want a great experience, I highly recommend this hotel.

I loved this hotel set away from all the crowds. But, not far from all the restaurants and stores to shop at. The rooms were large and clean. The lobby had a zen feel to it, and was very nice. If I ever come back to Honolulu , I will definitely stay here again.

I stayed at a room with ocean view, but the center view is partially blocked by some other hotel and apartments. You can only see the diamond head on the left and the ocean on the right. The room was spacious and cozy. The only problem is that there was no bathtub. Yeah, I like to relax in the tub...

Terrific hotel and room for the price .... rooms very large and super comfortable. Hidden gem in Waikiki ... Just steps away from lovely Kaimama Beach and easy walk to Waikiki, Diamond Head and Kapiolani Park.

The rooms are nice, I got a room with a balcony toward the beach. Although another building blocked a full view of the beach, I could still enjoy the sunset. The staff are extremely polite and helpful. There is no restaurant in the hotel but there is a very good one in the hotel next door. Room service from multiple...

We researched online for weeks looking for a place to stay on Oahu. We settled on The Lotus. We made the right choice! It is within easy walking distance of Waikiki, but since it is down close to Diamond Head, it is in a quiet area, with little traffic. It has a private beach, just the right size. The staff...

Hotel is a bit overpriced for what it is. There isn't any room service from the hotel, only the Waikiki online room service service. They direct you to a nearby hotel for breakfast since there isn't anything more than a continental breakfast available on site. The wifi is absolutely terrible and when I asked about it, they knew about it...

The rooms were really nice and the staff was very friendly. We were very pleased with everything the hotel had to offer. Although it's not really a business hotel, they' were very accommodating with making sure we had everything we needed for our meeting. The food was brought in from a local catering company and it was excellent and well...
