This is a private resident and not part of the hotel. I'm renting out my studio in Waikiki. It's a studio with a full-size bed, 42-inch TV, small bar type dinning table, microwave, and a refrigerator. A washer and dryer are located in a locked room outside your door on the same floor and are shared with one neighbor (airbnb guest). A full-size air mattress is available in the closet if you would like to use it. This studio does not have a kitchen but I do provide dishes and plates and everything needed to feed 4 people. I added a NuWave oven (Electric Range) and a small rice cooker.
The windows open so you can open them to take in the breeze, people-watch as people jog and canoe past, and listen to the sounds of a city waking up in the morning. Or you can close them and enjoy the silence that comes from living more than 400 feet above the busy tourism at sea level.

The space was OK, but Thomas was hit or miss. Sometimes he would be super responsive and other times no response. Then we waited for him in the lobby for check-in, at the time he told us to meet, after a whole day of communicating with him regarding checking in. I had to call him to actually get him to come down and meet us, and he acted surprised that we were there. Weird.
Honestly, it may be cheaper to stay further away and take a cab in to Waikiki. Waikiki is ghetto and expensive... As a former resident of Hawaii, i was only there for a wedding.
Great stay - Thomas was a great chill guy and the place looks exactly like the pictures indicate. The bed was super comfortable, shower had good water pressure, and the view was amazing. I especially loved the breakfast restaurant that is on the first floor of the building and the convenience of being so close to Waikiki without the price.

This was my first airbnb experience and everything was great! The room was beautiful, cozy, and very affordable. Fantastic location, close to everything--beaches, shopping, convention center. Game rooms, bar, convenience & food shops right in the building, too. Perfect if you're traveling alone!!
Thanks for a great stay! Thomas was easy to communicate with and flexible on our arrival time.
Great view of the city and mountain, easy walking distance to Waikiki and comfortable bed and apartment space.
A lovely room with dishes, utensils, great view. It is an expensive taxi ride from airport (abt. $40), inexpensive for bus but with luggage and rain, we found it difficult to negotiate the transit system. Only drawback is lack of reading lamps.
Beautiful view. Good location. Perfectly clean. As mentioned in other reviews the shower can be quiet an exciting dance of quickly changing temps.....but overall just lovely.
We stayed with Thomas' studio for 2 nights. Very good bed, convenient air mattress and basic amenities The view is nice, shops are around the corner, beach not far either. A studio suited when exploring Waikiki/Honolulu.
