Friendly Staff, Central Location in Waikiki

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 8, 2013

Honolulu is notorious for difficulties in obtaining a reasonable economical lodgings, even though there seems to be hundreds of hotels but there are thousands of tourists as well. I had read reviews about Aqua hotels in Honolulu, decided to book Aqua Wave because it was situated in Kuhio avenue and central to all activities in Waikiki region.
On arrival was greeted by Miko as if I were a repeat customer even though it was my first time there. She gave me a nice room on the third floor.When I decided to extend my stay, she upgraded me, without an increase in price, to a junior suite, a corner one which was ample in space.

Unique Quality: Both rooms, a regular one on the third floor and another one on the seventh were large in size.
the junior suite had a bath.
the junior suite had surround views of the waikiki area.
the staff was extremely friendly and helpful
Miko and Jawar needs mention.
No breakfast but the Muramake Udon is just across the street.
Most tourists staying at this hotel were from Americans from the USA.

Directions: Bus no 19 or 20 from the airport stops right in front of the hotel

An awesome hotel, an awesome staff

I highly recommend this hotel to anybody. We were a family of five and even the cot, which they supplied, was very comfortable and so were the beds and the rooms; everything was clean, staff was very friendly and helpful, even ordered a taxi to the airport. It turned out to be a limousine!

Unique Quality: We had the view to the ocean, it was great. We were there during the tsunami evacuation and the staff was amazing, they stayed calm and informative and knew, what they were doing.
We were just a few steps from everything on Waikiki, the location couldn't be better.

Directions: On Kuhio Avenue right next to the International Market Place.

A bit old...

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 5, 2003

I stayed in the Aston Coral Reef in Jan. 03. The room stank of cigarette smoke and the water pressure was poor. The elevators were slow. The view from my room was of a parking structure. If your expectations are not too high, go for it but if you are looking for nice comfortable hotel, give it a miss.
