Two Queen beds, cooking facility, compact bathroom but suited us. Central to all, we were out all day everyday and found the location convenient to local bus stop, shops, beach, church etc. Convenience... More

The Aqua Skyline is in a good location and easy walk from to any Waikiki attractions. High up you'll feel and hear the wind all day and night, especially from the glass louvered windows on the balcony. Air-conditioning unit is also pretty old and very loud. The building itself has an odd damp smell about it which can be unpleasant,... More

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment with 2 adults and 2 children. This apartment is fully equipped with a kitchen. It has washer and dryers onsite for a small cost. Beach only a short walk away.

The hotel is near the canal and walking distance to main parts of Waikiki (it's quite touristy here). The hotel is outdated. We got the "panaromic view" but it looks different from the room photos and it wasn't any different than a room with a balcony. We saw cockroaches on the floor when we first entered our room. You have... More

Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable with a little kitchenette for your cooking pleasure. There was a deck outside the sliding doors and a pretty good view. Very acceptable place to park yourself for a bit. Close to reasonable places to eat and to hop on a bus to take you pretty much everywhere. Not fancy but... More

Great place to stay within walking distance to Waikiki beach. BBQ and pool area was fantastic. Beds were very comfortable, handy to have small fridge and cook top in room. Only negative feedback was the extremely noisy air conditioning unit and over zealous security guards who wouldn't allow glassware on outdoor tables located near BBQ's. Maybe some signage advising would... More
