“Terrific location and staff”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

Stayed at the Aston Waikiki Circle from March 25th, 2012 - March 30th, 2012. Could not have been happier. Fantastic location in Waikiki. Fantastic staff, Naomi, and the other staff members are great (sorry I forgot their names). The rooms are a bit small, but great otherwise. A small microwave would be a welcomed addition. But otherwise WE LOVED THE LOCATION, THE HOTEL AND STAFF!

We just came back a few days ago. Had a very good experience at the hotel! If you want something affordable, this is it! It's steps to the beach (even though the work was being done on the beach in front, we still got a good view... unlike Marriot where there was a big pile of sand) that was only closed off in the morning for the project.

No pool, but we knew this and we weren't planning to use the pool anyways. Rooms were a little tight, but we knew that too. Good size cold fridge. Double beds, but comfy with comfy pillows! Clean rooms. This we all knew before we went.

Wow stuff we didn't know:
1. Borrow beach toys, floaty stuff, boogie boards, noodles for free.
2. Complimentary beach towels (sign out from front desk, borrow to your hearts content)
3. 10% off at Eggs and Things
4. Booklet with coupons at shops in other Aston hotels (especially kids free foods)
5. Complimentary Whole Living Magazine
6. Complimentary paper every morning on your doorstep.

Front desk staff was very helpful and friendly!

We had a late flight and they stored our luggage for free after check-out until we left for the airport.

We had a great time! We stayed on the 9th floor!

Room Tip: Choose Ocean Front or Ocean View if possible!

I loved this hotel because the rooms were all renovated as well as the washrooms. The location was more then perfect. I woke up and see the surfers just in front on us in the water, The rooms were small but who cares , I was always outside. There is no pool but a beautiful beach in front of the hotel. By the way they lend you beach towels and boards, The hotel is just in front of Duke's statue. On Fridays and Saturdays you can see hulas shows for free at sunset. The prices are more then great compared to other hotels around. There is a fridge in the room and plenty of ABC stores around. The only thing I didn't like: the AC was loud.
I didn't rent a car and used the BUS that goes every where. At the hotel they give you a map and in the back you have all the attractions worth visiting with the BUS lines.
A place not to miss is Hanauma Bay (7.50$ pp). You will be able to see plenty of fish even without snorkelling gear. I saw a big turtle as well. Bring food and beverages cause there are none by the bay which is a marine reserve. You would have to go up the hill to get anything to eat or drink.There are showers and toilets, as well as rentals (lockers and masks).
Coming back I stopped at Diamond Head, nice views but bring water and sneakers.
We took a surfing lesson with Bigwave Dave (www.surfwithdave.com) and it was just WOW and yes I stood a few times on the board and I am 50 (it was my birthday gift from my daughter) I also bought the CD with the pictures but I thought it was pricey (60$). I got as a memory.
Oahu was great,I'll go back for sure.

Room Tip: Take a oceanfront room, it's worth it

Great place to stay and perfect location, can not fault. Just right across from the beach and transport was so easy to use. The staff are friendly and helpful.
Our rooms were ready when we arrived. Rooms are as described but as you are not in them for very long - just to sleep - they do fine. They are cleaned everyday and with any problems they are fix ASAP.
McDonalds and the ABC shop are on either side of the hotel with Eggs & More just outside the lobby (always a queue to get in). Free towels and beach toys to use - just sign them in and out.
Walking distance to everything - zoo and aquarium to the left and shopping, eaterys & did I mention more shopping to the right.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone

Our family of four had two separate rooms at the Circle. Our teenage boys shared a room and we were next door. The location is outstanding, right across the road from the beach. The hotel has boogie boards you can borrow and there is an ABC store next door for supplies.

There was noise from the hallway most mornings which woke us up but the kids slept through it. The beds were comfortable.

The rooms are clean and comfortable - we weren't in them much, we were out exploring incredible Oahu!

We had a car for the whole stay and always managed to find a car park in the small garage under the hotel. Parking was $15 per day and we paid for internet.
