Aqua Bamboo Waikiki
Ranked #49 of 84 Hotels in Honolulu
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We really liked staying here. The rooms were spacious, clean, and affordable and the amenities were lovely! We like the pool and it is a nice perk that the hotel provides you with free beverages throughout the day. The location is also incredibly convenient. This is a good place to stay if you are on vacation or if you are on a business trip. One of our favorite places to stay in Waikiki...

My husband and I spent our 15th Wedding Anniversary and my 50th BD at the Aqua Bamboo and enjoyed every minute of it! It is a close walk to the beach (passing the best Mexican restaurant + margaritas in town) along the way.
Our room was clean and we found the front desk staff very helpful and friendly regarding any questions we had re restaurants + arranging our tranportation whenever needed.
We totally enjoyed the pool area, a very relaxing atmosphere after a day at the beach!
We would/will recommend this place to everyone.

Thanks to all Bamboo staff that made this a memorable time for me and my husband.

Room Tip: I would suggest getting a room that faces the pool area rather than the front street (re noise)

My husband and I returned to Aqua Bamboo in November. We contacted Nicole via email and she was able to provide us with a discount. She also gave it for my parents who I highly recommended this hotel to.
We love that it is a smaller hotel, less rooms, more homely. If you want lots of contact with staff you can have it, if not you can just keep to yourself and no one bothers you.
The rooms are always clean. We learnt from our first stay to ask for a room which looks over the pool, less noise from the busy Kuhio Avenue. FREE wifi available is every room.
Lovely refreshments available in the lobby 24/7 along with fresh apples and newspapers daily. There used to be a massage business next to the pool, it is now a small cafe open till 4pm daily. We had a panini for lunch which was delicious.
Aqua Bamboo is a close walk to everything, you won't be disappointed! Also, make use of "The Bus" right out front as this can take you all over the island for $2.50 per person.
We even received a departing gift (bamboo flute) on our last day. Those special touches make staying here so nice. The only thing is that I wish the pool was heated :)
Thank you Nicole and staff for another lovely stay.

Stayed there Oct. 28 - Nov. 2, 2013. Really nice boutique hotel. 3 short blocks to the beach. The room was clean and comfortable with a little fridge, coffee maker, microwave, stove, dishes cutlery, 2 person table and an alcove with a desk. Came with free Wi-fi to help us stay in touch with our kids at home. They provide you with cards to obtain beach towels from the front desk so that you don't have to bring wet and dirty towels to the room. Staff was friendly and very helpful.The pool is a little oasis surrounded by greenery.

The only down side was that the air conditioning is provided by a wall unit so you have some variable ambient noise when it starts and stops in the night. The majority of the time we didn't notice because we came back to the room pretty tired from our busy days. The bed, mattress and pillows were very comfortable..

Our family stayed here for a week in November 2013 and just loved it. Bamboo felt like a little oasis with its beautiful pool area and spa like feel in the lobby. Room had a lovely view of the pool and the king bed was very comfortable. Wireless internet in the room was great & front desk staff were very polite and helpful. We would recommend this hotel and stay again on our next trip to Oahu.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the lovely pool!

Stayed here with a friend in September and had such an amazing time. The staff were incredibly nice and welcoming, couldn't have asked for anything better!
My friend and I were lucky to be upgraded to a pretty incredible room on the 9th floor (room 903 I think). This room opened out onto a HUGE balcony with a private BBQ, cabana and sun lounges.It had city views from the large balcony and a partial view of the beach from the bedroom balcony.
Loads of space, great location, really happy with our choice.
