Hawaiian Monarch Hotel
Ranked #83 of 84 Hotels in Honolulu
Reviewed 21 September 2013

We stayed here twice in August, 2013. The first time we stayed, the room was much older, but still ok. The second time we stayed we had a room that was obviously renovated and that was much better. The hotel is located at the edge of Waikiki, towards the city.

My family spent a short stay at the Hawaiian Monarch recently. The hotel is pretty average, but it's clean, the service is very good and the views of Honolulu/Diamond Head and the lagood are breathtaking.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on one of the higher floors to enjoy the view of the city. Priceless!

We booked a room for one night at this hotel. It well represents a two stars hotel. The service was good. It was correct for people who doesn't look for a luxury place. The carpet, the bath and the Windows were dirty. The mattress was low quality. Waikiki beach can be reach by 15 minutes walk. Wifi is not available in the room.

I have stayed here several times while working in and around Honolulu and love this hotel. I went in with no expectations the first time and found very accomodating and cheerful staff. Clean rooms and facilities. And a clean pool area. I have unfortunately not been back since 2007 due to work.

Yuk!!!!! Please read the above I am not repeating everything. This hotel was fine 20 years ago. It is in terrible shape. Threadbare towels, holes in the blanket, stained bedspread. No clock or alarm. Mainly for permanent residents I think.

Problem with Waikiki is that you either pay through the nose or get a place with high security and a rough attitude, and still overpay. Such was the Monarch. Lots of hoops with using the elevators, no ice machine, a large barren lobby co-shared with other "charming" places, $20 a day parking if you want it.
Did feel safe there, though.

This is my first review. I wouldn't have written here in all honesty if it hadn't been for Celina (sorry if not spelled right). She went above and beyond asking any questions I had and was very helpful suggesting different activities around the area. She provided maps, both as handouts but also printed others out. She drew specifics on them, where to walk and cut through. She also provided times for special events as well. Great customer service. 5/5 rating for this ^

The facility shows some age, but at least has in the room a tv, fridge, iron, and MICROWAVE! There is a pool and laundry room available as well. You may be surprised at the appearance, but keep telling yourself, "You're in Hawaii, don't hang out in your room."

Parking on the otherhand is ridiculous. There wasn't a problem finding a spot, but even as a guest you're looking at spending $20 a night.

I looked at maybe 5 places or any suggested by travel sites and this appeared to be the best bang for the buck. It is also located in a decent place you can drive anywhere you would ever need to. There's also a Walmart minutes away.
