Its practical, well priced , well designed and has a cool unusual foreign sounding name, Ikea? Stay.
If you're not really concerned with high-end amenities, if you're not bothered by basic, casual accommodations and If you're not hung up on having the floor numbers in the solitary elevator be in the same font ,... then you're in luck.
this place is steps from everything in Waikiki. People mere yards from you are paying three to four times what you are, literally. The furniture is pure Ikea. Even has the Ikea tags on. The rooms, while by no means luxurious, are functional and convenient.
The staff is very cool. Local hospitality at its best. And they are well aware of the limitations of the place. Definitely stay on floors 5 through 8. Room numbers ending in 03 or 10 are the largest and have the best lanais. Secure one. Skip the "amenities" - the coffee is served in stryofoam cups and the pastries are from some frozen locker in some Costco somewhere. The Wi Fi crawls.
Go out for breakfast. You're close to everything. In fact, go out to breakfast in that hotel 30 steps from the front door where guests are paying $400/ night.
It goes a long way to make you feel akamai that you Stay waikiki.More
