The location cannot be beat. You walk out the door, turn right, and you can see the beach. All the restaurants and shops are close. The staff was friendly and helpful. We arrived early and were able to check in. We left late and they kept our luggage in the office after we checked out. They have loaner beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The bathroom was modern with a nice shower. The price was great. This hotel does not have the views or amenities of the resort places, but with beaches, restaurants and shops so close, we didn't need those extras.

Just back from a month at the Waikiki Central.  Amazing place I would not stay anywhere else.  There are so many Pro’s for why you should stay this hotel!! #1 Staff – they have the NICEST people who work at this hotel….they are kind, considerate, funny, and helpful!!  Hi Will we miss you!! #2 Location – it is a 3 minute walk to beach!!!  You are conveniently located between kalakaua and Kuhio.  There is Restaurants and shopping all around.  We had a car for a few weeks of our stay to do things out of Waikiki but when we didn’t have a car we could easily walk to whatever we needed.   If you wanted to hike Diamond Head the walk from the hotel to the trail head is only about 45 minutes or you could walk out to alamoana mall in about 45 minutes if you wanted.  This hotel is in the most central park of Waikiki so its fast and easy to get to everything. #3 Clean/Nice – the rooms were super clean!!!  They have also been remodelled recently and are super cute.  They have Bath and Bodyworks soap and haircare products. You also have a mini fridge and microwave if you want to cook a few meals (there is a Safeways about 40 minute walk if you wanted to get more groceries than are available at the ABC store. #4 Price – they don’t charge an extra resort fee!!!  However you still get the perks….good wifi, clean beach towels whenever you need them, beach chairs, beach mats, boogie boards, Kona coffee in your room… #4 COVID safe – the staff don’t clean the rooms during your stay due to COVID but provide you with clean towels, sheets, etc whenever you ask.  As well because it is a small hotel and you enter the rooms from outside you don’t need to go through a lobby etc to get to your room.  If you would rather not ride the elvevator you can just walk up to your room through the outdoor/open air staircase…the 6th floor is the highest. #5 Parking- if you do rent a car there is parking for a fee right onsite.  The price charges is less than most hotels in the area.  The lot is small but we had a full sized rental car and had no issues getting in and out #6 Safe – the hotel and area it in a very safe.  You need card key card access to get into the staircase or elevator so only guest are in the hotel.  It is right between the 2 main street so there is always lots of people around and we never felt unsafe. I felt totally safe letting our teenagers come and go from the hotel. I have been to Waikiki many times, this was my first time staying here and I will now never stay anywhere else.  Thanks again to all the staff for a great month!!!

I was very impressed with this hotel! The staff was friendly. There were beach accessories you could borrow, no charge. The room was very clean with everything you need (microwave, coffee maker, fridge, safe, shampoo, tv, AC, your own private balcony, etc.). Only one block to the beach, lots of restaurants and shopping all around. The price was also amazing!! 10/10 would recommend. Definitely staying here again when I come back to Oahu!

Aloha Hewolivia, I’m glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Waikiki Central Hotel. We are centrally located in Waikiki, being close to the beach and many great restaurants nearby. In Hawaii, we judge the restaurant on how good the food is and how much they give. So sometimes it’s nice to have a refrigerator for all those leftovers and a microwave to warm them up. Mahalo

I had a tiny hesitation when booking here but it was a last minute decision that i don't regret. I loved this place!! The 2 guys and the girl front desk personal were great! Very friendly with great vibes. They added to this fantastic vacation. Only 90 seconds walk to the beach!! In walking distance to everything. My girl and I decided this is our new spot when coming to Hawaii. Unlike those big named hotels, you get a more friendly, personal experience when staying at the Waikiki Central Hotel.

Aloha Therob34, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am happy that the staff showed a little of their Aloha spirit. The hotel is so close to the beach that it is probably closer then some mega resort's pool to room. Mahalo

The room was bigger and nicer than I expected. I guess the rooms have recently been renovated. The staff I interacted with were every nice. The location is very central, the name of the hotel is accurate! ha. I was surprised it wasn't as loud in the room as I expected. The shower was good too.

Aloha Richard, I am glad that we exceeded your expectations. The rooms were renovated in 2019. We are in the center of Waikiki but on a side street so it is not generally as loud as it is on Kuhio or Kalakaua ave. Mahalo

Located right in the heart of Waikiki and one block from the beach. Close to the bus stops and food or moped rentals right nearby. The room had a king bed and balcony and small kitchen area. And for the discounted price of staying for our long trip ?? We absolutely loved it and def will stay here again !!

Aloha Naomicatania818, I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Waikiki Central Hotel. We recently added the king bed to our room line up after the renovations. Since we do not have a restaurant on property and difficulty of eating in at a restaurants during covid, the small kitchen is useful in heating things back up or for small meals. We hope that you stay again next time. Mahalo

I love this place. it is close to the beach and they don't have housekeeping every day while you are there so you don't get interrupted. It has a small kitchen area with a small refridgerator and microwave so you can eat in if you want too. If you need towels or toiletries, you just go down to the office and they will give you clean towels when you turn in the ones you've used. This is the fourth time we have stayed there.
