“What a disappointment”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

Waikiki Beach Condo at 444 Nahua is tired. It is a 10 - 15 minute walk to the beach and very convenient to a small grocery store and a Starbucks, but the place is old and hasn't been well kept up. The condo we rented was pretty dirty --- the silverware all had to be cleaned before we used it --- every cabinet surface needed cleaning --- the floors were gross --- the inside of the clothes drawers needed to be cleaned. The photos are misleading --- the one bedroom we rented had a decent size bedroom, but the living area was tiny. The furniture was uncomfortable, didn't really fit well into the space, and was UGLY. The hallway to our place was undergoing some electrical upgrades so there were exposed wires during our entire visit. Also, all the recessed lights in the hallway were open. Some walls in the hall had been scrapped and needed repainting. So....the walk from the elevator to our condo was unsightly. Many of the parking spaces in the building are piled high with old furniture. Very unsightly. On our next to last day, we had a significant leak from the vent above the toilet in our bathroom. There is no concierge on duty --- although there is a security person available (during the day) by phone. The security guy came by when we first reported the leak problem and said he would look into it. We used extra towels to dry things up. The next day, it got worse. More towels, more promises. Yuckkkk. I suppose you get what you pay for, but I wouldn't book a friend or family member into this place.

Room Tip: The rooms that front on Ala Wai Blvd are pretty noisy because since there is 4 lane traffic on Ala W...

If you like roaches, maids unexpectedly barging into your room and horrible service this is the place for you. I would never stay here again. Huge waste of money. This place isn't worth my 200 characters. Stay away.

Stayed a week here and loved it. The booking agent Jeanie could not of been more helpful, early check in and late check out for no extra charge.
Very secure building and rooftop swimming pool and sunbathing areas.
Three independant BBQ's with a large fridge and washing areas, absolutely superb.
Plenty of shops nearby for food and drink.
About a pleasant 10 minute walk to the beach.
Recommended highly

Room Tip: Stayed on the 14th floor, great views.

The room is very old, lights don't work, doors are falling apart and AC does not work, beds are dying and the roof has crumbled in a few areas of the kitchen. The pictures are misleading, some rooms are better than others. The only good thing about the condo is its location near Waikiki beach, its a 5min walk to the main drag and beach.

Room Tip: Pay for a better room

The location was very convenient and close to shops, restaurants and the beach. The parking was a bonus and allowed us to get to Highway One in minutes to get away from the Waikiki area and explore the island. The reservation process was very smooth and Myrna and Jeannie were very helpful. Rachel was waiting to hand over the key and explain various features of the condo and security in the building. The had starter quantities of cleaning supplies and coffee/tea which was a bonus too. Plenty of linens and the maid came in every alternate day during our stay ( included in the price) so I would highly recommend this condo to families

Room Tip: We ate at the Marukome Udon restaurant twice...right around the corner from the condo...best noodles...

This condo was ONLY pretty good. During our stay, a lot of public areas were still not done, for example, the wires up on the ceilings were all exposed and the drop ceilings were not covered, especially all the doors were not painted. The unit was smaller than the look from the pictures. The swimming pool was also small and the water was cold. The parking space was so narrow that required a skillful driver with a small car. BUT, it was closed to the beach, the shopping and all the actions. So overall, this was a pretty good place to stay in.

Aloha Waikiki Beach Condominiums
444 Nahua St., Honolulu

My fiancée and I stayed here for a week on our combination vacation/wedding/honeymoon trip. In my view, the positives far outweighed the negatives. I searched at online hotel sites for a hotel or condo in Honolulu that offered free parking. Only four properties popped up, and this was one of them. Personally, I resent having to pay extra for parking (Some of the ritzy hotels charge such outrageous prices). Our decision to stay at the Aloha Waikiki Beach Condominiums was a good one for us, and we were happy that we chose it.

Positive aspects include low rental cost with no hidden fees for parking or service fees. Other positives: great location in Waikiki area (2-minute walk to international market, walking distance to major restaurants), free parking with an assigned parking space, fob parking system used for car and elevator (you just scan the fob to enter/exit—good for security), kitchen, microwave, refrigerator, coffeemaker (with several packs of coffee), washer/dryer, nice view.

Negative aspects include hearing some noise from Ala Wai Boulevard, which is a major thoroughfare (It wasn’t unbearable, but we were on the 16th floor). The closet was somewhat junky with several unused pieces of furniture stuffed into it. Check-in procedure is a little tedious: there is no front desk; you have to call someone on the intercom, and she will come to meet you. It seemed that one woman was in charge of the whole building. She seemed competent enough but overworked. Getting technical help with the television or some other problem can also be a little tedious since there is no front desk. You have to call and leave messages.

I would stay at this condo again, and I would recommend it to my friends.

Room Tip: The only tip I can think of is to ask for a higher room. It's a 23-floor building. The higher ro...
