"Great location, kind of..."
Overall for the money, it was a good hotel. The staff was very friendly. The room was clean and spacious for a room in Waikiki. (Most places in Hawaii are small and cramped.) The location is great as far as being walking distance to everything including the International Marketplace, Waikiki beach, the Honolulu Zoo, and lots of great places to eat. […] The location is bad in terms of it's right by a lot of night life and the noise does not get blocked out well in the room. We stayed here for the Honolulu Marathon weekend and I had to wake up early to get to the start line. I couldn't sleep due to all the weekend partiers staying up late in the bars downstairs. If you don't mind the noise, excellent place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I'd stay here again."
This hotel is close to everything. The rooms were clean and adequate for our one night stay. We had a/c, a TV, a microwave, refrigerator and a coffee pot. We lucked out and got parking, but, I could see how this might be a problem - not many spaces.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK for the money"
I only had to stay one night. While the staff is friendly, the room itself leaves something to be desired. It certainly needed Febreeze. I could not identify the smell. The room was in much shabbier condition for the money I paid. It looks more like a budget hotel. The WiFi is fast, though. There is a quaint little bar downstairs that serves cheap maitais. […] However, I will not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stayed over night before cruise."
Staff was accommodating and very friendly!Genuine Expedia guest review
No pool, no breakfast in the hotel,big rooms, close to everywhere.Genuine Expedia guest review
It's not the Hilton, but then again neither is the price. If you're not the type that needs marble floors, polished silver, and a nanny to hand feed your purse-bound lap dog, then the Aqua Wakiki just might be for you. It's updated, clean, centrally located in Waikiki (Great Location), and just an all around good value for your hard earned dollar.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel in Waikiki."
We had a junior suite. All facilities were great but I didn't like room amenties. Towels were worn out. I guess its a value of the price I paid. Location is very convenientGenuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel, room smelled pretty bad, needs a good airing out and updating.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Short walk to the beach"
I just spent 5 days/nights and enjoyed it immensely. Everything about the hotel was good - friendly and helpful staff, nice sports pub attached, clean and well maintained. I would have given a straight 5 stars, except it was located 2 blocks from the beach. I guess I should have given it higher points for that, as it forced me to at least walk to the […] beach to sip adult beverages. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

"Older hotel, great staff, walk tol the best stores"
Only a few steps from the main shopping and nightclubs,this old but well cared for hotel boasts clean (if older) rooms and facilities, an amazingly friendly staff and great prices. The location was amazing, close to everything!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything in Waikiki"
Located in middle of Waikiki makes it close to just about everything in the area. Window type AC was so loud it interfered my sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to beach, near Starbuck coffee."
Price is right. Some electrical outlets don't work. Some night lights don't work. But good cleaning service. Parking is terrible. Hotel only has 20 parking spaces, first come first serve. I was told to park at the Waikiki World Trade Center nearby, which they charged $45/day, but Hotel did reimbursed $25 per day.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff and the hotel were great. When I first saw the hotel, I wasn't impressed, but after meeting the staff (especially Robbie and Ese) my impression changed. Those two went out of their way to help us whenever we asked for something.The tree in the back that had a thousand birds in it, greeted us every night when we came back and in morning before […] we got out of bed. On the last night, we were moved up to the ninth floor and we had a room with a balcony (thanks to Robbie). These rooms were choice. We really had a good time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
There was no place to park. Specificly asked for two beds and when we got there, there was one bed. Front desk person told me I needed to read the fine print on my contract with Expedia.com. After I told her I booked it through Hotels.com she happened to find a room with 2 beds. Overall a shady experience. I will not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Convenient location near everything Waikiki and beaches, really handy at night to not have to drive anywhere. Budget accommodation style but tidy and presentable with lovely staff. Hawaii is amazingGenuine Expedia guest review
For its location, size and price, we picked a 2-BR suite at the Aqua Waikiki Pearl for our high school reunion getaway. It was a very good decision. As advertised, the 97 sqm suite had 2 bedrooms, a living room, a large lanai, wonderful airconditioning and a functioning and well equipped kitchen. This suite could well sleep 6 with 2 double beds and […] a double sofa bed. It had enough power outlets for all our charging needs. Another bathroom would have been nice, though. Located right in the heart of touristy Honolulu, a few minutes walk from Waikiki beach, this quiet hotel is nestled in the heart of the action. With so much food and ABC outlets within a few blocks, it makes it hard to choose where to eat. The housekeeping, front desk and security service and staff were admirable. Always friendly, very accommodating and snappy. Since we rented a vehicle, we needed parking. The hotel had over 10 slots and if you're unlucky, there is an auxiliary parking building 2 tiny blocks away for $3 less a day. I just wish 1) the hotel could put roofing or a tent under the tree where 2 slots are and save the cars from buckets of bird poo. Poor you if you land on these slots. Or better, have a 2 level parking structure to accommodate more cars. And 2) provide a more decent smoking area for smokers. Overall, we were so happy we chose to stay here. Our pockets are intact too. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice little touches and close to beach."
Very pleasant. Staff was quite friendly, room was well appointed; proximity was excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
Only one negative, rooms not sound proof. Morning delivery trucks very noisy at 6 am.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was very friendly. Location is good for Waikiki interests as it is close to nearly eveything in Waikiki. The night was very noisy with late city activity going on in the streets below and traffic. Otherwise, well worth the money you save/Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to must see sights"
Friendly staffs, walking distances to beach, shopping, and restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"good place to go"
good location, the room was clean, the staff so friendly and helpful, air-cond is so noiseGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel offered great value and location for the money. It's located 10 min walk from the beach and 1/2 block off of the main strip in Waikiki. Harry and the front desk staff were great during check in and check out. They gave us an upgrade and the room was very spacious. The wifi also worked well in the room and was FREE! I look forward to returning […] to Waikiki soon and will definitely stay at the Aqua Pearl! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Prime spot, overall nice for price"
I had an interior room with a queen and double bed, basic kitchen amenities (microwave and refrigerator) and bathroom. Location was between Ala Wai canal and Kuhio Street which was only a street away from Wakiki beach, the shopping centers and was a major bus route. No pool but there were plenty of beaches.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Visiyt Stephanie at the front desk. Great experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice walk to beach. Friendly staff"
Nice staff, 10 min walk to beach. other then that I would not stay here. Couldnt keep my blinds open, room did not feel like a room that would be in Hawaii. Half the lights/outlets didnt work. Just not a very enjoyable place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Moderate expectation and a moderate hotel"
Street noise, parties until 0300, were the only real downside. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, the location was close to the beach and accessible by the excellent local transit system. No, its not a 5 star place but we were comfortable and felt safe -- only the late night partying was an issue.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Aqua Waikiki pearl"
This was my second time staying at this hotel. Great location, and affordable. Staff was great!! I'm so gonna stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly Staff, large room"
We had a free upgrade to a larger room (we have no idea why). The staff was very friendly and helpful. The parking situation is really bad (welcome to Waikiki) and is expensive if you can find parking, if not, you park for a little less per day at the Convention Center or find street parking. The bar downstairs is a sports bar and is really loud until […] about 4 am, so if you are planning on having a quiet night's sleep, this may not be the hotel for you. The price is reasonable for the area. The staff had really good knowledge of the area and told us the best places to find authentic food and the best prices for everything. We will stay here again for sure! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place to stay"
Hotel was nice and in the middle of everything beach was down the street, 24 hour sport a few blocks away.Genuine Expedia guest review
The rooms were great! I had 3 people in one room comfortably. The workers were so nice and so helpful. Very friendly. The location on the other hand was terrible. It was loud and paper thin walls. The pub that is right next to the hotel was a bad idea. It was very clean and very roomy. I enjoyed my stay other than the noise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stopped there on our way home from Australia in an attempt to reduce the jet lag. We will be back- the staff was helpful, the bed was very comfortable, the room clean, and we were allowed a late check out because our flight off the island was at 10pm.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
great customer service. really helpfull staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Bad hotel in a fair location"
The hotel is located in the less luxurious part of the hotels district of Honolulu, Waikiki, and there's a 10-15 minutes walk to the beach. It's close to restaurants, shops and buses. Our room faced an open corridor and the parking and didn't have a balcony nor view. The a/c was an old and noisy window unit. The room was not very clean.You should ask […] the receptionist for a shower cap,and they charge 25$ per night for a crib/roll-away bed, which usually comes free. Overall, not the best hotel.

Nice experience. But expensive. Bad position. No loundry. Bad bothrom.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel in the center of location. The only thing the bar under neath is too nosy at night and scary to walk by with kids.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice people. Limited parking. Old, dirty carpet and tile, spots on couch, musty smelling. Way too expensive for what it was.Genuine Expedia guest review
"2 bedroom suite"
The two bedroom suite was actually only a one bedroom. You get the "2nd" bedroom by pulling a curtain to separate the 2nd bed from the living room. Otherwise room was fine with lot's of space. Parking is very limited, so even thought they advertise parking, odds are that you won't be able to park at the hotel if you're coming and going with any frequency. […] Location is in the heart of Waikiki and only a couple block walk from the beach. It's a reasonable budget hotel for Waikiki. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel itself wasn't impressive but I only used it to sleep and shower. The location is fantastic. Less than a five minute walk to the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel to stay around Waikiki"
Hotel steps are very kind and helpful. Hotel is a little bit old, but well maintained. Room was cleaned abd big enough for my whole family, four peopel. Close to Waikiki, walking distance. In front of international market place.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was in a perfect location and the staff was outstanding.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very small parking allways full so you have to park in another building a few blocks away (5 to 7 minutes walking). Too expensive compared to other hotels with better services and location that I unfortunately saw when I was already in Waikiki. The room is too small for a "junior suite" and has no style; it is not a "suite", even "junior". One of the […] two lifts was out of order and they did'nt fix it in three days! The building is just cheap and no service at all inside the hotel. For 198 dollars a night it is really not a good value! I would recommend to chose another hotel except if you have a pet (they accept pets) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice affordable hotel"
Nice decent hotel, reasonably prices, close to the beach and where all the stores are. You cant go wrong with this one.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in a great location."
Would definitely recommend this hotel to someone not wanting to pay ridiculous prices for the same room you get at the other places. The bed was really comfortable also.Genuine Expedia guest review
"they have almost no parking ,did not clean rooms"
anyone that stays at that hotel will definitley have all of hawaii they want for a long time to come.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A pleasant suprise"
Wow. Was I surprised how nice this hotel was. Yes, the neighborhood is not the best but neither is the strip in Las Vegas. I was on vacation with my family (wife and 2 daughters) and felt very safe the entire time. The hotel staff are fantastic. They made sure our stay was the best it could be. What a difference from the large hotel chains. The room […] was large compared to the other places we have stayed before. We reserved the junior suite that was only $20 more per night and well worth it. The lanai was facing the street and we had a small view of the ocean over the international marketplace. Plenty of nightlife in walking distance so no need for a taxi to get around. The beach is only a short 5 minute walk through the international marketplace. You are a block away from the only supermarket in Waikiki (Food Pantry) and everything you need is walking distance. Without a doubt I would stay here again next visit to Waikiki.
