Interaction with Guests
I'm not present on property but live nearby. I generally just communicate with them through Airbnb website.
You right across street from small pier, ocean, and zoo. Kapiolani Park and aquarium are a few minutes walk (under 5) minutes.
Parking info. Bldg parking $17 a day, call Waikiki Grand Hotel reserve a spot. You can park for free around Kapiolani park which is about a 5 minute walk- Paki street side of park and Monsarrat St. Kapiolani Park has free metered parking from 6pm-10am and Sundays. Across the street parking at the zoo cost $1 an hour, this can be cheap since you only pay for what you need.
If you choose not to rent a car, there are multiple bus routes just steps away. I recommend only renting car on days you plan to go North Shore. Everything else is walking distance or easily accessible by bus which is one of the best systems in US.
No Smoking permitted on premise.
I enjoyed my stay at Grand Waikiki hotel. The room was perfect for my girlfriend and I. We ran into a hiccup at the airport, and he was kind enough to extend our stay for a bit until our issue got resolved. We Couldn't have asked for a better location! Next time I return to Oahu, this will definitely be a place I will strongly consider. The location is perfect for all activities. I highly recommend it; I am really thankful for Francisco's hospitality. He was a great host.
We stayed here for 4 days on our honeymoon, and it was incredible! Perfect location for walking to many incredibly tasty restaurants, and only a block away from the beach and Boardwalk. A magical view of Diamondhead and the Beach. Sunsets from the balcony were a highlight! Francisco was hands off, but easily reachable with a great response time. He ran the AC for a few hours before we got there, so the room was a perfect temp when we arrived. He provided a great set of amenities with plenty of towels, awesome shampoo, and even some starter sunscreen before you have a chance to buy your own. The Keurig coffee machine and supplied coffee was a great start to every morning. The keypad entry to the apt made it really convenient to go to the beach without having to take keys.
The apartment is small, but perfect size for 2 people. The bathroom sink is a little too small, but it's a great test for new couples to see how well you share bathroom space (we passed!). Definitely reserve a parking spot with the hotel. It will be the best purchase of the entire vacation.
Can't recommend this place more. It's perfect!
The place was just we wanted. Gorgeous view over the zoo to Diamondhead and also of the Waikiki beach. We loved sitting on the balcony listening to the waves and the world go by. We walked down the main avenue to restaurants and shopping. It's right in the heart of the city but on the end of the row of hotels so you get the best view. The space was perfect for us. Very clean and just what we were looking for. Can't wait to come back! Don't forget to reserve a parking place with the hotel - that was so convenient!
Beautiful! The view was breathtaking! The place was perfect for two of us and had everything we needed! A special thank you for the coffee and solarcaine(My husband got great use of that!) Nothing better than waking up to the view of the ocean and Diamond head with a cup of coffee on the lanai!
Location was very convenient for our purposes--beach, food, and shopping. Awesome views from the lanai--the beach/horizon one direction and Diamond Head the other. Kitchenette and bathroom were smaller than expected, but the room itself was a good size for two people. Francisco made check-in easy and was hands-off during our stay.
Francisco was very helpful with preparation for our trip. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed 10 nights in the apartment. Photos on the listing are accurate representations of the space. We walked all over Waikiki. Only used uber a few times. A great location. We cooked breakfast every morning. It helped us budget for some great dinners. So many amazing restaurants in the area. We had a loss of power and Francisco responded immediately. Maybe 10 minutes. Great evidence of his availability. I would rent this space again no problem. And make yourself known at Hula's Grill and Lei Stand on 2nd floor. They celebrated their 41st anniversary while we were there. Great deal on Maitais.
