Reviewed 31 December 2013

This is our 4th stay in Oahu. We stayed for 9 nights at this hotel after booking at the very last minute (4 days prior)- so we knew we were not going to get a great choice. The hotel is old and many of the standard rooms are tired and fitted with old style air conditioners which are VERY noisy, however at the time of booking this was all that was available for our length of stay. Our rooms was small and drab but clean. After a few night we asked for an upgrade which we got for just $25 a night to a junior suite which was plenty of room for our family of 3. This was a much better room. I recommend you go for this kind of room if you are staying unless you are really on a tight budget. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Beautiful touch as we were there over Christmas and New Year was a gift left in our rooms. A handy carry all bag for Christmas and for New years a bag of tasty good quality snacks. This was a lovely touch. The location is very convenient to everything in Waikiki across from International Markets (which were closing down at the time of our stay to make room for the Saks 5th avenue complex). Some street noise but so has other higher class and price hotels we have stayed at. I am not sure what the plans are the hotel to match the new upmarket neighbours, but a facelift would be good. However for the budget traveller this is a good hotel for the price if you upgrade to the better rooms.

Room Tip: Book a Junior suite as the standard rooms are old and small with noisy air conditioners. Some street...

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...
