Budget Hotel in The Heart of Waikiki!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 30, 2007

The Hotel offers Breathtaking views of Oahu's two famous landmarks: Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach and is not as expensive as the Kalakaua Ave and Kuihio Ave Hotels. It is one block from the Waikiki beach, across the street from the zoo, close to the International Market, and several other shops.

The Queen Kapiolani is a good choice for a budget hotel close to famous Waikiki Beach, the Zoo and Park. I would recommend you book ocean view or higher category rooms as the lower floors are quite noisy due to street traffic. The hotel is very close to Lulu's, a great restaurant with a great view of the beach and also to Starbucks, which is convenient for breakfast each morning. If you are interested in spending time outside of the hotel and seeing the sights, this is a fantastic place. The hotel has a concierge in the lobby who can help plan day-trip activities for guests. There are also 2 convenient, small shops in the lobby for gifts or swim needs plus an EXPEDIA.com Tour Desk to help you plan cheap tours!

Unique Quality: Named for Queen Kapiolani (1834-99), the wife of Hawaii's last king, David Kalakaua (1836-91), this hotel harks back to the days of the Hawaiian monarchs. The 19th-century flavor of the place reflects those grand days, with 10-foot chandeliers in the main dining room and a full-size portrait of the queen in the lobby. The plush decor, however, doesn't extend to the budget rooms, which are quite small. For just a few bucks more, get the superior room. Not only is it double in size, but its shoreline views are vastly superior.

the hotel is located near the foot of majestic Diamond Head and just steps from famous Waikiki Beach.It is Approximately 12 miles from Honolulu International Airport. Kapiolani Park, Honolulu Zoo, and Waikiki Aquarium are also within walking distance.This 19 story 315 room moderate hotel offers a restaurant and pool with sun deck. The open-air Garden Lanai restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, while the Peacock Dining Room features specialty buffets. The hotel also offers a tour desk, limited parking at $15 per day, jewelry shop, laundromat, vending machines, and gift and sundry shop and even an Expedia Tour Desk in the Lobby.

Great Value in Honolulu

Older hotel some may say needs renovation but it is a great value for money. Awesome location in eastern Waikiki. We had an ocean view room with unobstructed views of the ocean and Diamond Head. Not that we were in the room long enough to really enjoy the view, but it was only 5 mins. walk to the beach. This would be an ideal location for families with small children as the beach had an enclosure to combat the surf. Note that rooms are small, but clean and tidy.

Unique Quality: Hula's nightclub is just next door. Staff were very friendly. Hotel has an old Hawaii charm about it that made us feel right at home.

Very Comfortable & Affordable

Aloha
Having been to Waikiki before, and staying at another hotel in the middle of all the hotels. I decided to stay at the Queen Kapiolani because of it's location at the quiet end of Waikiki. It's next to the zoo. My family gave me a hard time about my choice, (due to the lower hotel price), until they arrived at the hotel. It's not the newest hotel, in fact it's in need updating, which is currently under way. Our room was on the 16th floor over looking the Honolulu Zoo, Diamond Head, and the ocean. It's just beautiful. I don't know about you but I live in the woods, and I rather see nature instead of buildings. The hotel is close to everything, beach - two blocks away, bus stop - right outside the entrance, highway - 6 blocks to the left. Everybody we met at the hotel were totally happy to be there. It's not the newest, but it was very clean, and comfortable. Would I stay there again. You bet your life I would. Checkout their website. Save some $$$. - Mahalo

Unique Quality: There is a restaurant on the 3rd floor, which we decided to try the next day. What a gem, we mainly had brunch there and never paid more then $5-7 each, you name it - breakfast - burgers, sandwiches, and great chef salads. You will pay twice that anyway else. Even the bar serves drinks that are half the price of other places. My only regret was they served "Prime Rib Dinner" for $9.95, and we were never back in time for dinner. Others at the hotel told us they were totally surprized how great that dinner was. - Maybe next time :-)

Oh yes, parking at the hotel it's $8 a day. You can park it yourself or have an employee do it for you. It's tight if you have a full size car. If all the spaces are full then they will park it for you. Give them the keys and forget it and it will be parked in the garage for you.

Directions: Looking from the ocean you are on the last street on the left, of a compacted area of hotels.
