Whilst room was fine the dining room, bar and lounge were all closed only option for these within reasonable distance was at hotel next door which was itself busy and didn't always have capacity for extra guests.

We booked this hotel specifically for it's location, away from all the business and noise of Waikiki, and we got exactly what we hoped for. Quiet and laid back atmosphere. True there is not a restaurant here but we found a beachside cafe within a 5 minute walk that served wonderful food. Our room had a spectacular view of both...

We have stayed at the Lotus Honolulu At Diamond Head for the past 7 nights and we could not be more satisfied with our stay. We leave tomorrow and that makes me sad!

I just recently visited the Lotus Hotel at Diamond Head and it was a very pleasant stay. The level of service was fabulous and the room was great.

All the staff was very welcoming. Very clean. Loved the complimentary "happy hour" of wine and coffee. Loved that the beach was a 2 minute walk, if that and they provide beach towels and chairs. Even the little things like a scale or wine cork, the customer service was very prompt and reliable!

This hotel is located on the 'far side' of the Honolulu downtown concrete canyons & madness. Having said that...you can walk to the Duke statue in 10 mins. So, it's not far at all. Very quiet & peaceful location. Rooms are spacious. Bedding very comfortable. Control your own AC or let the breezes come in through the big sliding doors....

We like the location, Quiet and removed from the hub bub but just minutes from all the actions. We liked our room, which has a big balcony overlooking Diamond Head to the left and part of the ocean off Waikiki Beach on the right.
