"Stay across street"
Staff not friendly. Wish we had paid a little more and stayed at Hilton Hawaiian Village across the street. Went there for a day with friends that were staying there and it was awesome. They have slides, beach, shopping, and much more at your door.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Aqua Palms Review"
This hotel charges $25 per night for parking cars. They dont tell that while making the reservation. While other hotels in the area do so aqua palms also charges $15 per night for HOSPITALITY which makes no sense and is othing but looting.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok place for short stay"
Room very small but adaquate. Bed comfortable. Shower awful, one of those spray showers, could hardly get the soap out my hair. Good location. Walking distance to beach, many restaurants and shopping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Aqua good side of Waikiki to stay in"
Like the new sofa beds...could use better lighting tho...good end of Waikiki ...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very satisfied with our stay"
All in all we were very satisfied with our stay. The bathroom is small, but clean and functioned well. Location to the beach was walking distance...we walked thru the resort across the street and were on the beach in no time whatsoever. The staff was very friendly. Just note that the entrance to the garage parking is very steep. Our little compact rental […] car was very challenged! The housekeeping staff were very efficient and friendly.

"No Air Conditioning at night."
Air Conditioning cooler is turn off at night, you get cool warm fan air (not cold). We call the front desk was told they are no maintenance crew at night to reset the air conditioner central unit. We had to sleep with the patio door open it was on main road very noisy. The sun hit the unit in the morning it got very hot before they turn on the central […] cooler.

"Some good, some bad, but juuuust worth the price."
Stayed for a week. - Staff was very friendly and helpful - Room was clean and quiet - Blackout curtains worked well - AC never quit - Partial ocean view is BARELY an ocean view (not their fault, but not worth an upgraded price) - Bathroom was cramped and poorly lit - Pool was small, shallow (4' max), and unheated (matters in winter at night) - Exercise […] room was HORRIBLE. They shouldn't be allowed to claim to have one. One old bowflex, one broken TV, one broken and unusable elliptical, a dumbbell set and no bench. Easily the most disappointing part. - Location is OK. Right near the huge Hilton complex (which you can take advantage of), but the beaches are nicer about a mile in either direction of this hotel. Still very walkable. If I were doing this trip again, I'd stay a little closer to diamond head than ala moana beach. But all in all a decent value for the off season. I think I paid about $150\night with all taxes, and tacked on charges included. - Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"almost great customer service"
There was hair all over the floor of unit so I know they didnt clean the floor and I wonder what else they didnt clean. I actually took kleenex and cleaned the floor because there was so much long brown hairs on it at check in. The chairs were stained dirty but so much so that I would never allow those inside they looked like outside chairs. Otherwise […] the unit was great. And the service was excellent. My only issue was that we were running late to the airport and had towels from friends staying across the street at hilton hawaiian village. We asked if the front desk could run them across the street for us. They said yes and as we finished loading our luggage and two toddlers the superviser brought the towels out and said they could not do that and we had to take them. I ran and I mean ran across the street and back and it took about 10 minutes to leave them at a vendor on the property but we almost missed our flight. It blows my mind that they were not willing to do this small favor for a customer. This really irked me. I used to work at the front desk of a 4 diamond hotel. I realize its not a 4 diamond hotel but its a small kindness that would make a big difference to us. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location. Close to the beach and close to Kalakaua shopping/nightlife/restaurants. Very small rooms, friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My review of the Aqua Palms Hotel."
You should probably rent a compact car because the parking structure has a steep entry and very narrow parking stalls. The Diamondhead view room have a nice view of the Hilton Hawaiian Village across the street a large portion of Waikiki and Diamondhead, partial view of the ocean, and it's a little noisy because of the busy Ala Moana Blvd below. I found […] that after while walking around in my room, my feet would get dirty, probably because the carpet needed to be cleaned. All that aside, the hotel has a decent price, and good convenient location. All the rooms have a mini refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker, which they provide the coffee and condiments. There is an IHOP on the ground level, but it seems to be empty all the time, probably because people preferred to go next-door to the more local style Wailana Coffee Shop. There is a Todai Japanese seafood buffet on the next block, also a Thai restaurant. You can also walk to the beach. Keep in mind that you are halfway in between Ala Moana Shopping Center and the main part of Waikiki, so you should probably rent a compact car. The hotel staff are all very nice and treat you respectfully. So for the money, I would say it was a very good stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"PERFECT FOR THE CONFERENCE ACROSS THE STREET"
Needed to go to a conference at the Hilton Hawaiian, but everything was booked so I booked the Aqua Palms which was right across the street, so it was very convenient. Rooms were clean and neat and were fine for my needs. Price was right too, much cheaper than the Hilton. It was too far from Waikiki Beach, but it was perfect for my needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was my first trip to Honolulu and I was looking for a clean, economical room for my 5 day stay. This place does the job. Staff were responsive and friendly. The pool is a little small but well maintained. Location is prime and the beach is very accessible. The room was spacious and the bathroom floor was a little dingy but otherwise everything […] else was fine. Right across the street from the Hilton and definitely not Hilton prices. There are restaurants and stores within a block of the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good alternative to beachfront hotel"
The hotel is just a street away from the beach and situated nicely between varying attractions. During my stay they were under renovations which was definitely inconvenient and unattractive, but for future visitors should make their experience all the better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Happy with the service"
The hotel was undergoing renovations in the lobby and when I let the manager know that I would not have booked the hotel had I known that, she happily upgraded us to a suite and gave me a 10% discount. The location was great and the staff was friendly and helpful. I'd stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Renovations in progress"
Hotel location was great. Hotel staff was good. Hotel was under renovation: Lobby was a mess. Hotel pool was not useable. Ice maker on 4th floor was out of order (had to go to floors 6, 8, or 10) for ice. Would NOT have stayed at Aqua Palms if I had known that it was in the middle of renovating.Genuine Expedia guest review
Tiny lobby was half closed for "upgrade" but never saw anyone working on it. $25/day parking was difficult to reach. Room is right over Ala Moana Blvd so is loud 24/7. Pool was closed. (Waikiki was 3-5 feet and we had a 4 y/o, so the pool would have been a nice option.) Tub had no drain plug so son couldn't take a bath. Promised free bkfst at IHOP wasn't […] offered. I expected a lot more for $250/night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Good value and good location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Aqua Palms is located between Ala Moana shopping center and waikiki beach. 5~10 minutes walk to the shoppong center 30 minutes to waikiki beach. The pink line troully stops right front of the hotel gate, that is awesome. Ihop is right next door,and nice american diner is right after next door.Genuine Expedia guest review

Rooms were nice, good service, parking lot sucks! 25$ a day..the stalls are tiny...the garage us narrow we had a Tahoe and we had to squeeze....we has a diamond head view. Cant see diamond head but view was still nice of the cityGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good hotel for the money"
Aqua Palms is an older hotel which has kept its original charm. No bells and whistles, but a clean room, friendly staff and adjoining parking. Convenient location. A bit noisy with the morning traffic and other activities, but the interior was quiet. No loud parties at all hours. Carpet could use a redo. If they shampoo it one more time, they're liable […] to hit flooring. Bed was comfortable and bathroom was miniature but very adequate. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The first room assigned to me was on the 8th floor at the end of the hall by the housekeeping supply closet. Couldn't have been a grungier room, with cracks around the light sockets and beat up lamp shades. It had a very old feeling to it. The pipes would shake and moan when I took a shower. I went down and complained and they moved us to a new room […] the next day. This one was a little better (no shaking pipes), lampshades were not quite as beat up. However, the bed in the new room was awful, it sloped greatly on one side (felt like I was going to roll off at night) and was super soft. It is an average place to stay if you need a cheap place in Waikiki with an iHop next door. I read that they will start charging daily for internet access and other things starting in August so not sure the value will be that great. I did find the staff to be very friendly and helpful.

10 min after I booked I received a call from the hotel. They told me the hotel was over booked and they would move me to one of the partner hotels that was actually more expensive. All I have to say it felt like a 100 degrees outside and the room was even worse. AC was broken! When asked to move I was told there was nothing they could do.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great value in Waikiki"
This hotel is right across of the Hilton Hawaiian Village and in a great part of Waikiki Beach. I had friends staying at the Hilton, and they paid about 50% more for their room. Yes, it's true the Aqua Palms is a simple hotel but you can enjoy all of the amenities of the Hilton. I also liked the fact that you can easily walk to Lewers Street where there […] are great rrestaurants, bars, and shops. There is IHOP and Wailana Coffee Shop next to the Aqua Palms along with a nearby convenience store and surfboard rental. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel itself was very nice and the room was comfortable. If I had to complain I would have to say that our room had a huge slope to the floor which gave a feeling of falling forward toward the rooms door. This also made sleeping a little "fun" with the slope being so acute. I also think our room was slightly in need of an refurbishment when it came […] to the furniture. Although everything in the room was in very good shape, the furniture was a bit dated. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Budget Hotel with Lots of Nice Touches"
Tons of pros for a budget hotel and one big con. Make sure to stay above Floor 8 if you stay on the street side, or move to the residential side. They provide lots of small thoughtful touches - great smelling toiletries, apples in lobby, plenty of local information, great air conditioning, very clean. Staff is wonderful. A little difficult to find […] since IHOP fronts most of it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Budget Hotel with very few flaws..."
Hotel Aqua Palms in Honolulu, Hawaii, offers a decent accommodation for fairly little money Oman otherwise expensive island. When we arrived we were greeted by very friendly and helpful reception desk staff. We had book a room with partial sea view. Ours was on the 9th of 12 floors. The room itself offered all we wanted: a king size bed, large screen […] TV, a European style refrigerator, a coffee make, an irion and an ironing board. The couch in the room was fatigued and seemed in need of a thorough cleaning or, even better, replacement. The laptop safe was large enough to store my large laptop, all phones an iPads at once (with room to spare). The small balcony with room to sit and have drinks on rounded the picture. As I mentioned before, compared to most of the other hotels this one was well priced. Therefore the pool area was not very enticing (somewhat sparse on vegetation and decoration) and the sea view very partial (across the street one finds the Hilton Hawaiin Village, blocking most of the view. Parking is in house, very convenient and with $25 a day expensive. The hotel (including room and pool) was very clean, the cleaning staff very friendly and accommodating. If you are on a budget but don't want to miss certain comforts, then we can only recommend Honolulu's Aqua Palms Hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"close to restaurants and stores"
I like the location since it was situated around all the night life. Everything is within walking distance. Beach was about a 5 minute walk away. It was a very relaxing business trip since I rarely had to take the taxi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had an awesome time in Hawaii last month! Aqua Palms is a solid hotel. Excellant staff, especially Ryan who's so patient & helpful. If we return to Hawaii next year, we will not hesitate to stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach - Great location for the price"
This hotel is about two blocks from the beach and right on a main street. Furniture was older, but room was very clean. Bed was very comfortable. Hotel staff was friendly Don't pay extra for the Diamond Head View because that puts you on the side of the building over the main street. Road noise was unbelievable even on the 11th floor. The Diamond Head […] view is not visible from the room anyway unless you stand by the window and turn your head to the left (pretty far away) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"We enjoyed our stay in the hotel and on the Island"
This was my second trip to Oahu and both times I stayed at the Aqua Palms. I have enjoyed my stay at the Aqua Palms and the Island. The rooms are clean, but a little small, which wasn't a problem for us because we were gone all day. The last time we visited, which was a few year ago, there was a complimentary continental breakfast, they don't have that […] anymore. That was the only complaint I have. If I ever return to Oahu, I will stay at the Aqua Palms. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

EXCELLENT, CLEAN, CONVENIENT, GREAT SERVICE! WE'VE STAYED IN MANY HOTELS IN WAIKIKI, INCLUDING MANY NAME BRANDS. AQUA PALMS RANKS IN OUR TOP 2, AFTER A WEEKEND THERE!

"Great hotel for the price!"
If this is your first visit to Hawaii and you are looking for a good deal on a hotel I would totally recommend this hotel. Many of the cheaper hotels in the "Aqua" chain have the local style jalousie windows. But this one has windows that are completely sealed with central AC (not all hotels are like this on the island). Also, the location is great. […] You can literally just cross the street and you are in the Hilton Hawaiian village with lush foliage everywhere and penguins, turtles, and coi fish in their ponds! You can walk through this opulent hotel village each time you walk to the beach. This location is farther from Diamondhead on the newer side of Waikiki. The hotel is connected to an IHOP and very close by are also a McDonalds & Subway. I saw that someone had complained about construction nearby. They are building very close to the hotel on the side facing away from the ocean. But the noise didn't start until 7am which was fine with us bc we slept good the whole night since it was so quiet. The hotel we first stayed in on the other side of Waikiki was very loud the whole night and we slept horrible. We loved it here! I will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Hawaii.

"Good price for a comfortable stay"
It was our first time in honolulu this past spring and we had such a great time. We knew we were going to be out all day throughout the stay so we did not want to book an expensive hotel. The aqua palm was a very nice hotel located at the beginning of the Waikiki beach strip. The staffs were very friendly and accomodating. Our hotel room was cozy and […] just what we needed after a fun-filled day in the Hawaiian sun. They also let us bring our rental bicycles up to our hotel room. Overall, we had a great stay at the hotel at a very good price. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who does not care much about luxury and with great people that would make your Hawaii trip an even better experience! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location property at affordable price levels"
Across street from Hilton Hawaii Village, just 5 minutes from its beautiful beach area in Waikiki, this hotel guests enjoy similar level of convenience to that well-know resort complex. The slightly tilted floor levels make people feel different from all other hotels. The bathtubs are very limited in length, able to save tons of water for the hotel […] day in and day out. Guest service is great except for occasional maid disturbance during morning hours, trying to clean your room as early as possible. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Aqua Palms is a great hotel if you're looking not to spend resort prices. The rooms are clean and well-sized. They were serviced by the staff each day, who were extremely helpful, friendly, and polite. The hotel is within easy walking distance of beach and right across the street from great shopping and restaurants in the Hilton Hawaiian Village. The […] mall is also just a short walk away. The concierge can help you to to find tours of all the great spots on O'ahu. Overall this is one of the more affordable non-resort hotels in Waikiki in a pretty great location!

"Enjoyable Stay - Versatile Location"
If you enjoy walking to your destinations, this hotel is the spot. Up the street about ten minutes you find Ala Moana Mall, across the streets gets you to the beach in about the same time, and down the street ten minutes to the heart of Waikiki Beach. Rooms were clean, beds comfy. Staff happy, and they throw a Thursday afternoon cocktail party with […] live music in the lobby. Street noise a little bit, being located on a main highway. Some lanais you cannot sit, so be aware. Overall, I'd go back for another stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
