Excellent choice other than being in a tourist trap but overall value was worth it. I was impressed with a free 0930 checkin with no hassle.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location to breaches and shopping"
The staff was very good. My room was on the fourth floor. It was convenient to the on site laundry machines which was nice for the length of time I was there. The room had no view and my balcony was only feet from an adjacent building. No privacy unless you shut balcony curtains. Higher floors shouldn't have this issue though. Room was two double beds. […] I would have preferred one king/queen bed with some kind of couch or lounging chair as my room only had dining chairs and computer desk chair. The bathroom sink had the wrong faucet too. I would stay again but ask for a higher floor. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Being from hawaii and this being my first time staying at this hotel & even hearing about it, the Hotel was great, the only down fall was that there was no parking on the property. I was upset that I had to park at the pacific monarch hotel next door for $25(no kamaiana) I could only park on the first floor with like 8 stalls, lucky there was one that […] was open & it was really tight. The pool was down and the complimentary coffee machine was broken. There was Starbucks down the street. Other than that hotel was great, customer service was excellent.

Really enjoyed the hotel. Not very quiet at night because of the street noise. The conversations from the sidewalk literally drift right into your room, but if the air conditioner is on (medium) it drowns out nearly all of the traffic below. The rest of the the experience was stellar. Less than a five minute walk to the beach. Best price I could find […] for what I was looking for (three beds and a full kitchen). Best price by FAR! Great experience, we'd use it again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The staff was excellent!!"
We came to the bamboo early in the morning and they got us checked in long before the designated check in time. The staff was wonderful from the time we arrived until we left.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel 4 blocks from Waikiki beach."
Enjoyed the free appetizers, drink and entertainment on Th night. Especially enjoyed making my free orchid lei! Rooms and kitchen were fine. Bathroom could use a little updating. Was great being able to check out beach towels and beach chairs from the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice but not fancy"
This is a very nice, older hotel that is close to the beach and very comfortable. The staff was helpful and pleasant. I enjoyed my stay and would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff was so nice and super helpful. We were able to schedule all tours we wanted to go on through the hotel. The free beach towels were awesome. The beds weren't super soft but worked fine for me. There were some cosmetic repairs that would make the hotel look better. The walk to the beach was so easy. Overall, I would definitely stay there ag […] ain. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"a little noisy"
We were on the 2nd floor next to road and it was quote noisy. We paid an extra $20 a night to upgrade to a different room on the other side of the hotel which was much better but ended up making it more expensive then planned. Overall very clean, friendly workers and great location for beach and shopping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect budget location"
This is a great hotel in terms of value for money. The room was surprisingly big. We had two queen beds, a balcony, fridge, microwave and a sink. There was complimentary coffee, tea, water and lemonade 24 hours and the concierge service was also really good for booking trips. Staff were always helpful and friendly. Wi-Fi was mostly ok and free. Location […] was great, in the main shopping area just 5 minutes from the beach. The rooms were a little dated in terms of décor but these were just cosmetic and irrelevances for us. For service, value for money and location, this place is real hidden gem. HIGHLY recommended.

The place is not in good condition at all was't very clean for the price you can do much better! try Vive hotel across the street!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
i wish we got to stay at this hotel longer! stayed in the studio room. perfect size for the two of us with a kitchen. having a pool was so soothing after a lot of shoping! short walk to mid waikiki beach, million dollar shopping strip and local cafes and restaurants. super friendly service people. the bus system on oahu is so simplified. an easy 10-15 […] minutes ride from aqua bamboo to go the base of diamond head or shopping at ala moana center.

"Beautiful Boutique Hotel"
This was just a lovely place to stay. The room was exceptionally clean, though a bit small and slightly dark. Our lanai did not have much of a view to the water, but the night skyline to the mountains was very pretty. The mini-fridge and microwave, along with the included dishes and silverware, helped to defray the cost of eating out, especially with […] the number of local farmer's markets taking place. The sauna was great, the laundry facilities convenient, and the pool refreshing (it was quite cold, though, as the sun never seemed to shine on it enough to warm the temperature). The proximity to the beach was perfect, as well as the hotel's prime location on Kuhio in central Waikiki. With only ten floors, the atmosphere seemed much more intimate and comfortable than the massive tourist compounds in the area. We found the bellhop attentive at check-in and check-out, and the front desk staff friendly and helpful (someone did assist us in connecting to the internet, as well as printing out information from the web). Add to all of this the fact that the hotel is eco-friendly, and it is nearly perfect. I have traveled the world, and this numbers among my favorite places. I would look forward to staying again!

"A nice stay in Waikiki"
The room was a bit small and the air conditioner was quite noisy, but..it was comfortable, had a nice view and was convenient to the beach and shopping. We especially liked the new restaurant on the property, The Lovin oven under the gracious hand of manager Lizette. Great made to order breakfasts. Also helpful at the concierge desk is Lei who helped […] us figure out where to drive to get where we wanted to go. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is in distance of waikiki beach and waikiki strip perfect location. Hotel room is pretty descent but it doesnt really matter knowing 90% of the day i was outside enjoying waikiki the staff was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
If you want a nice hotel that's also nice on your wallet. Aqua Bamboo is the spot. Not the best hotel ive stayed in, but its decent, especially since I spent more time outside enjoying Oahu than in the hotel. I really just needed a place to sleep and shower, then off to explore the island. Parking is $25/day. And the hotel is about 3 blocks away from […] the beach, very close to everything in Waikiki.

"Very Nice Customer service"
I wanted to surprise my wife with 2 dozen Red Roses in our room. I had them delivered to the front desk, and they had them waiting in the room when we checked in. I had my doubts that it would happen. But The room was beautiful, and it couldn't have went better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, walking distance to beach."
I arrived October 18, 2013 for a 9 day stay to celebrate my birthday. Had a kitchenette with balcony. Loved all the upgrades this hotel has done. Great location. Very close to public transit. Walking distance to beach, international market place and several other hot spots. Staff was VERY nice, informative and accomodating. Hotel was clean! Room was […] comfortable and tidy. Street noise was loud but for me not too bothersome and actually found it entertaining although front desk was more than willing to relocate me to a quiter room. I would DEFINETELY recommend and would stay at this hotel again. I got a great package price for my flight, lenght of stay and the specific type of room I wanted and a sweeter benefit about staying at this hotel for me is that they did not have any "additional" fees other than for parking. Weather was perfect! slightly breezy, only humid and hot on last day stay other days were very comfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach"
Only reason for not getting excellent on Room Comfort was that I was on the second floor and I could hear the buses that stop across the street and could hear the loud people walking on the street at 3am.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great convenient hotel!"
The Aqua Bamboo exceeded our expectations. Great location with less than a 5 minute walk to Waikiki beach. The kitchen in our room was very convenient for cooking breakfast each morning. Free towel service was a big plus. Thank you Aqua Bamboo!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasant Surprise in Waikiki"
My husband and I stayed here one night prior to a cruise. We were pleasantly surprised. Queen sized bed. Beautifully furnished. Had a fridge, stove microwave, coffee maker and utensils. There were orchids placed around the bed and in the bathroom. It was spic and san clean. There was a balcony off the bedroom and one off the kitchen, and we did not […] stay in their best room!! The staff were very professional. Check in and out was a breeze. There was a pool and Jacuzzi . The property is two blocks from the beach and in a great location to all that's happening. I would definitely stay here again!!. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to beach"
Beautiful staff, clean, stayed in 305. Nice letters and gift from staff on departure. My only problem was (and its not the hotel's fault) was the VERY loud noise of traffic if you have balcony door open. The room is directly above the noisiest streets so if you stay on that side of hotel, try to stay on higher floor. I dont do well with AC so we had […] to keep balcony open and it was very very loud. other than that- GREAT hotel, I LOVED IT! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"About what you would expect"
My family had a great time on our vacation. Aqua Bamboo was a nice place to head back too. We did not see too many people in the hotel while we were there, outside of the Thursday meet and greet. The staff was very friendly. The parking situation was not the best, $25/day to park (limited underground parking). There is a public lot next door for $20/24 […] hours, but it is catch as catch can. Not a lot of "Free" amenities, but you are not really looking to spend your time in your hotel, right?! No real "great" view, but located close enough to the beach to just walk over and enjoy.

"Nice hotel close to the beach and strip"
Overall good experience. My kids enjoyed their pool very much. Hotel location is near the streets do can be noisy at night. I liked that the kids had their own space versus mine!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place for the money"
I have stayed at so many big name big money hotels in Waikiki and decided to save some money. I thought i may have had to rough it NOT the case. Great staff clean large room central location. I travel a lot to this island and feel that I have a fantastic place to hang the suit and will be staying here as a regular.Genuine Expedia guest review
This quiet oasis in the midst of Waikiki is well worth the visit. Rooms are clean and comfortable with all you need for a holiday stay. Plenty of towels and toiletries. The pool area invites relaxed lounging between bouts of shopoing and sightseeing. Staff are extremely helpful but not intrusive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Two blocks from Waikiki, great little shaded pool to escape from the sun if necessary. Close to great sushi and udon. Close to Kapiolani park. A mile or so from Ala Moana park where you can play pickup volleyball with the locals. Everything is more expensive in Waikiki than it should be, so the price of this hotel goes along with that....not really […] a way to escape that. So overall, good place to stay!

"Close to the beach"
The hotel was small, and the amenities were simple, but they had beach gear, including surf boards, paddle boards, and bodyboards that you could utilize during your stay. The hot tub was out of order, which was disappointing, but the rooms were in fairly good shape...might stay here again...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach and a lot of shoppin"
My experience here was ths best the hotel staff was beyond wonderful. We had a hard time finding a place and one of the front desk actually took time to walk us there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Must be good for families, not so much for couples"
PROS: The staff was very nice, friendly, and responsive. The location is 3 short blocks from the beach. Kitchenette means you can get your own food. It's cheap. CONS: Our room, at least, was pretty run-down. The hotel claims to be an oasis and part of some elite resort chain. That's nonsense. It's cheap, with nice staff, but it's definitely not a meditative […] retreat. We spent one night here before taking an inter-island flight. Taxi was $39 each way to/from the airport, plus tip. Not sure if a slightly more expensive room elsewhere would've gotten us a shuttle. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"very accessible to other areas of city"
For the most part we enjoyed our stay. But early the morning of our last day when I got out of bed in the dark I stepped on something which seemed strange. I turned the light on and to our surprise we found a huge bug - two inches long. Of course it scared me. My husband and I immediately checked all of our luggage, clothing, etc. to make sure we did […] not have any of the like in our personal items. We found nothing else but the one was more than enough. The hotel personnel where all extremely nice and very helpful. Won't return because of the "bug". Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I'll begin by saying that I thought the staff were absolutely incredible. They were helpful in many ways. However the hotel itself, and the room was a little old/rundown - especially considering the price. I had hoped it would be a little nicer. The location is pretty spectacular though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Little Diamond in the Rough"
This was our second stay at the Aqua Bamboo. It was ideal for our family's situation. Just a little bit off of the beaten path, but still a great location. Close to many attractions, good restaurants and lots of shopping. The room had a small kitchen, so it gave us the option of eating in or going out. The service and accommodations were great. Really […] don't even need a car, everything is within a hands reach, Thank you Aqua Bamboo! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good for the price"
My husband and I stayed there for 3 nights for our 1 year anniversary. Fortunately, we got upgraded to a larger room, which was nice since it included kitchenette. However, the room was towards the street side, so it was quite noisy during the night and early in the daytime from the traffic and street contstruction going on. The water pressure in the […] showers were pretty weak, the water was not draining well. There was some mold/mildew in the bathroom ceiling and floor, but that is pretty minor. The sink is awkwardly small in comparison to the giant faucet, which blocked the sink. Kept getting water all around the sink counter because of this. Otherwise, the room was fairly clean and tidy, the beds are comfortable, the robes are so warm and cozy, the staff were friendly and courteous, service was speedy and fair. Location of hotel is centralized in Waikiki, which is convenient so almost everything is within walking distance. Good price for the hotel in comparison to the other hotels nearby.

"Not great for smokers or people with rental cars"
We had to park next door and the parking structure didn't belong to the hotel. We forgot to pay parking while we were on a luau and our car was towed. It was a 198 expense plus a 30 cab fare. It was also noisy and you are not allowed to smoke on your own balcony/lanai. Our lanai was on the 5th floor and faced a brick wall. Next time ill pay a little […] more and stay somewhere that has their own parking. The room was nice other than a broken closet door and a tiny lanai. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Location over Amenities. Simple and Nice."
This hotel was alright. It isn't anything to write home about. The room was a lot smaller then what I had expected. It appears they have remodeled the rooms recently with new furniture and sinks which gives it the appearance of an upscale hotel, but I would say it's just ok. We only spent two nights there, but the location was great. Everything you […] needed was well within walking distance and easily accessible. The beach was one block away.

"Nice hotel for a family."
The hotel's situation is really great, near Waikiki and all bus stops. The room is clear and clean, but it seems not as big as on photos. We stayed in a kitchen double room suite, very practical for a big family, soon expensive in vacation. Another deception, the street noise is clearly audible even from 6th floor. The staff is very nice. The Internet […] access and beach towels are free. To conclude, our stay was nice but not exceptional. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

It is OK for the priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I read a lot of reviews for a lot of places in Hawaii and most seemed to be ignorant, complaining about stuff that is either basic hotel policies or things outside of the hotels concerns. The Bamboo was nice, it wasn't 4 or 5 stars and I new it wouldn't be since no one claimed that, but for the money and location it was great. We had a good time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
