I've stayed here twice this year and have been pleased with both of my stays. The rooms are a bit small but are clean and the city & ocean views are amazing. The hotel is very close to shopping, restaurants, the beach, night clubs and bars as well as love entertainment. All within walking distance. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying a week or less.
My wife and I stayed here for a week while vacationing in Oahu. We got a partial ocean view room with kitchenette on the 38th floor facing Waikiki & Diamond Head. The room was the perfect size with plenty of space for everything we had. The bed was very comfortable. The room was clean, as well as the window. As mentioned in other responses, the TV was an older tube-style but it worked just fine. The only drawback was that our particular a/c unit had a condensor which was iced/frosted over which I discovered on our first day. I shut it off and let it defrost while were out & about and it worked fine for the rest of the stay. The hotel is within a 10 minute walk to the beach.
I had a rental car for the entire week we were there and paid for the 7 day parking pass when we checked in. The whole process was painless. The $18 daily parking pass is comparable to other big cities. You have to remember that this isn't a Motel 6 in the middle of Nebraska...space is a premium on the island. You can find cheap rental cars though. My rental car was $170 for the week. Factor in the $126 I paid for the parking garage and my total rental car cost was about $300 (without fuel). That's not bad for a week and gave us the freedom to do what we wanted, when we wanted! No cattle-esque tour busses for us!
The room was very quiet. I'm not even sure if we had adjacent neighbors. We were there in late October which is the off-season though. We were happy with this hotel!
"Great value and budget hotel in middle of Waikiki"
Excellent service, nice and helpful staff! Check in was nice and quick and there was plenty of parking at the time I checked in. Laundry facilities were also available on-site, which helped quite a bit. Elevators worked very well. Also in the room was a kitchenette with microwave, refrigerator, and dishes, bowls, and utensils. Kinda feels like an apartment in some ways.
The Hotel Aqua Aloha is in an excellent position. Close to everything you need.The staff were great...polite and helpful. The hotel bar over the road was very noisy at night. We will definitely stay there again.The beds were very comfortable, just what you need after sightseeing all day. Only one complaint. We tried to book another 2 nights but were unable to, because the hotel was booked out. Now that says something in itself. All up, it was a great hotel and we enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it to anyone.
I really like how the room is so simple yet has all the necessary things to make me feel comfortable and at home!(: I am most likely going to be stayin here again very soon! The laundry rooms are clean and the washers & dryers actually do their job.. For a reasonable price! Can't wait to come back!
