Why all the glowing reviews? This is an old building a block off Waikiki that has been refreshed with a coat of paint and does indeed have a friendly, helpful staff and a few extras like free wireless and breakfast. The hallways are tired and untidy; my room had one of the filthiest showers I've ever seen (mold, grime on the doors and tub floor, hairs everywhere, a slow drain--I wore my flipflops in the shower) and lumpy, old beds disguised with new bedding. The positive reviews on Tripadvisor made me choose this place, but I think I could have had far better value and a cleaner room and better bed elsewhere, which makes me think the people who like this hotel are too easily impressed.
