Aston Waikiki Beachside Hotel
Ranked #76 of 84 Hotels in Honolulu
Reviewed 30 November 2013

Not to be confused with the Aston Beach a couple blocks away, or the Aston Beach Circle next door, the Aston Beachside is a nice little no-frills boutique hotel right across from Waikiki beach.

The room was small and nothing extraordinary compared to more modern hotels (ie, it has an old CRT tube TV, but I wasn't in Honolulu to watch TV!), but the room was always kept clean and it was relatively quiet despite being right beside the elevator. Even with the airconditioner turned off, there was a nice breeze from the open-air hallway that kept the room cool all day & night (this is in November with 25-30 Celsius weather, might be different in hotter/humid weather!)

The most noteworthy thing about this hotel was the staff; everyone was friendly and cheerful, and the three front-desk staff I encountered throughout the week seemed to always know who we were; I've never stayed at a boutique hotel, but this level of personal recognition was the most valued part of this stay.

Although WiFi is not free ($10/day), you can get an access code from the front desk to use in the lobby which will continue to work in your room for 24 hours.

Room was a bit small but clean and cumfy The lanai was above the street so was loud but when door was closed the room was quiet. The bed was nice and soft. The staff were all friendly and helpful. My son and his wife had the room next door but it was not as clean and well kept as ours.
My daughter had one two floors above ours and was happy with it. If I were going back to Waikiki
I'd stay there again but I don"t care for Honolulu any more.

This hotel is a hidden gem on Waikiki Beach. It is old, the one elevator is tiny - but the rooms are reasonably priced, clean and functional and the hotel staff were probably the best part of our entire visit to Oahu.
We had a confusing reservation and the folks at the front desk made it simple and we even managed to get an upgrade to a balcony overlooking the beach for the last part of our stay.

Room Tip: If you want a view balcony you have to book 9th floor or higher - there is a huge banyon tree right...

We found this place at the last minute and we were really happy that we did.
Our room looked right out to Waikiki bay and was literally right on the strip.
Awesome location if you want to enjoy the busy little vibe Waikiki has to offer.
The staff were fantastic, Francis especially who went out of his way to accommodate us.
Although it is a little older, the price and location are sensational…totally recommend staying here.

Room Tip: 901 or 902 are the rooms to have!

We checked into our room along with our family members and were all of the same opinion. We are not staying here. Both rooms were smelling of ammonia, the toilet system was broken, the bedside lamps were falling apart, lights on the wall were not fixed to the wall, furniture was looking very old. The view was amazing but we wanted a comfortable bed, which it wasn't. So we checked out. Hotel in a great situation, but badly needs maintenance.

Room Tip: no tips, aircon is right beside the bed, only one lift so one couple with luggage can go up at a tim...

I like this place because of the people and the location. The staff is fantastic, generally it is clean but there are a few things overlooked by housekeeping - like cobwebs on the ceilings. The facility is outdated but has a certain charm and much promise if it was properly maintained. Sadly maintenance in this hotel seems to have been compromised by the bean counters sitting in their offices dictating to lower management levels how they will run their business. The rooms and public areas are adequately appointed - with the exception of 20 year old TV's - but those furnishings, plumbing fixtures, etc. are not being maintained and are showing their years of service. Oh, I don't like being extorted for WiFi either.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are worth the extra cost.
