“Staff made this location fun.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

We walked in here after leaving a trashy place near the airport. The front desk staff made us feel very welcome, showed us a room before booking us, then upgraded us to a king suite after a guest failed to leave on schedule so we could have our promised room. It's true that the noise level is pretty high in Waikiki, but I suspect most hotels in the area have the similar problem unless you can afford $250+ per night for rooms right on the beach and even then you'd have to be lucky not to be above some noisemakers. Our maid service was fine, but usually we just met them in the hall to tell them we needed some towels or coffee or something. We were there off-season, but felt the price was fair for what we got - a clean, comfortable room with nice décor and easy access to the beach by going out the back of the parking garage and through the International Marketplace. Be aware they have no pool - but it is Waikiki Beach you know?

Room Tip: Higher floors and east side have less street and crowd noise.

The maid service was almost non-existant, the elevators were slower than a slug, the rooms were unbearably noisy, and the parking for vehicle charges were exhorbant!!! We will not be staying here again.

Stayed here for a week from 16 Nov 2013 with a girlfriend for a shopping trip. Room 1417 was fabulous. 2 queen beds and still plenty of room to move around. Great view from the balcony. The service was very good. Everyone was friendly from the moment we arrived early in the morning. They looked after our bags until we could check in later in the day.
During our stay we had a problem getting into our room and maintenance came up immediately and fixed the problem.
Fantastic location, modern rooms and great staff.
See you again soon.

I hadn't been to Hawaii, and at first glance some of the hotels seemed a bit pricey...for me...let me explain . I take 3 week vacations about three times a year. I am single. My requirements are a well located room, clean, near public transportation...I do consult trip advisor and the reviews from the Aqua wave made me decide to stay here. Right choice,,, On arrival staff was welcoming and offered all the info I needed as far as the beach, restaurants, buses, bars, sites to see, and more. All week they were there to help and answer questions. The result was a great week. By the way the room had a microwave and small fridge...perfect for a traveller like me, as after a full day of beach or hiking sometimes I just want to hang out and have some drinks and snacks....This hotel is a short walk to the beach and surrounded by restaurants, bars, coffee shops and more.....I was able to arrange some trips from the desk in the lobby....So glad I didnt pay hundreds more ...this was perfect for me, and with the money I save, i get to travel more

Aqua Waikiki Hotel 2299 Kuhio Avenue Honolulu, Hi
From Maria S. Gonzalez
Room 1513 (Oct 28th thru Nov 5, 2013 - party of three)
Aloha Mikko,
I want to express my gratitude for the room that you gave us with a breath taking view and for all the great attention and service you and your staff gave us. Our stay was a restful, peaceful and great experience. We had a wonderful time in Waikiki and staying at the Aqua Waikiki Wave Hotel made it even better. It was my friends first time to Hawaii and they want to go back next year, the Lord willing.
Have a great Thanksgiving and a blessed Christmas. Mahalo,
Maria S. Gonzalez

Room Tip: Ask for Mikko, great service

We stayed at this hotel for few nights. The location is perfect, the room are good size, clean and good service. Our only negative comment is that there are about 12 steps from the street level to the entrance of the hotel where the reception is and there is never anyone at the "concierge desk" to help you with the luggage. We had the help of a passing pedestrian when we arrived and the help of another guest of the hotel on our departure to help us with the luggage. Not good.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large rooms.

We stayed at the Aqua Waikiki Wave hotel for 3 nights and everyone that worked at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. Whenever we needed an extra towel or even shaving cream (that we forgot to bring along) they were more then willing to accommodate us. The room was a nice size and very clean. The only complaint we had was that it was a bit noisy, but being downtown I believe no matter where you stay it would be noisy. We had a great stay!
