“Well located,comfortable hotel”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

The 'Pearl" was clean,comfortable hotel. My family of five rented one of the two bedroom apartments and satisfied our needs.For an older hotel the room was refurbished well , beds comfortable, bathroom clean. It is located central to most things and value for money.
The staff were very friendly and helpful

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise emanating from the street

The room is pretty awesome. I had a comfortable experience here. The location of this hotel is also pretty good. It is close to the Waikiki beach park, and there are many bus routes passing by the nearby bus stop. So, it is easy to go to downtown, airport, diamond head, hanauma bay, and so on.

Awesome place to stay, either with family or friends. When trying to find an affordable place to stay near town and the beach, Aqua Waikiki is an excellent option. We've been really pleased with their staff members, they were very helpful and kind with us!

Just spent two weeks here and was very impressed. Been to Honolulu many times and have spent alot more money on other hotels that could'nt come close to the experience I got here. The staff here makes you feel at home and will go out of their way to help you with anything you might want to do. It is an older hotel but was very clean and well kept. Perfect location for anything you might want to do. A small bar downstairs shows all sporting events and every NFL game. Can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: If you are noise sensitive you might not want a balcony room as the delivery trucks can be quite noi...

We went to Honolulu for the marathon and wanted to stay near the marathon start/finish areas. This hotel was perfect! It was a 15-20 minute walk to the start and was a 10-15 minute walk from the finish (Honolulu Zoo.)
From what I recall, it is not a resort so a resort fee was not added on and thus made the price within our budget.
Overall, the hotel is clean, quiet, and has all the necessities people need. I didn't think it was a luxury hotel but the service provided by the front desk receptionists and cleaners always exceeded my expectations, hence the 5 star rating.
As for parking, it cost $23/night if you parked at the back (which was quite small and had a tendency to be full after 6pm.) They have an agreement with a parking garage at the Waikiki Trade Center where it cost $20 cash (but you have to show your Aqua Pearl Waikiki parking pass when exiting.) The garage folks then staple a receipt on it and you have to show the parking pass and receipt to the front desk of Aqua Waikiki Pearl so they can delete the $23 charge on their system for that night. Just an FYI.
Overall I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Waikiki beach was a 5 minute walk and while there, you'll find vendors trying to give you a free surf lesson, free ukelele lesson, etc. (similar to what the 5* hotels in the area offer to their guests for free.)

Location: Near shopping malls, beach and there's a starbucks just a few steps away. Bus-stop is nearby which has buses that bring you to Mauna Loa Shopping Mall, Pearl Harbor (Bus 20/42), Hanauma Bay.
Service: IMPECCABLE. We were impressed especially by their warm and friendly counter staff. We reached the hotel early at 12pm and was allowed to check in. They showed us how to get around town and even provided a free map and bus service guide.
Room: We had a free upgrade to a junior suite and it was spacious enough for both of us. A gripe was a faulty lamp that made the room much dimmer at night. Room service was daily at 930am and the room was well-attended to.

We highly recommend this semi-budget hotel to anyone who wants to visit Honolulu. We will definitely stay in Aqua Waikiki Pearl in our next visit :)

Room Tip: Late check out at 6pm for an additional USD21 is really a must have if your flight is scheduled late...

For the price (less than $100 USD) this hotel is very good. The location is excellent (2 blocks from the beach), next to restaurants, a market and a pharmacy. The bedroom was OK, two comfortable beds, a good shower head, fridge, coffee machine and a microwave.
The staff was nice and helpful.

It's a good option if you're looking for a room for less than $100 USD in Waikiki.
