My experience was not good. I booked a specific room 5 months prior to my stay because I wanted three specific amenities (pool, free parking, 2 queen beds). Correspondence prior indicated that all was well.
We arrived around 4pm which was check in time and was told that the room we booked was not available. We could cancel or go with the other option they had available. The other option was a neighboring hotel for three nights and then another location (which was not the same quality) for the fourth night neither of which were in the hotel that we paid for.
Neither options had had all of the amenities that I wanted and paid for.
Theresa did not return my calls or IMs for a day and a half. We called Airbnb and they reported that a host cannot alter any bookings without the customer accepting or declining the change. This practice is strictly against their policy.
Airbnb offered to help find another Airbnb host for our immediate stay. I looked online (we spent more than 16 hours on the computer during our vacation, trying to find other accommodations and trying to figure out what to do and did not find any suitable locations for such short notice. All calendars were full. The island was particularly booked up solid since it was a triple holiday weekend (Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, Chinese New Year).
We were stressed and not happy for most of our vacation. We finally booked another room out of pocket which had most of the amenities we wanted. My previous Airbnb experiences have been superior to this one. This felt like a bait and switch scam. Both Airbnb and Theresa issued me a refund.
이 숙소는 Aqua Bamboo 호텔의 일부 방을 콘도로 분양받아 재임대하는 곳입니다. 즉, 시설은 호텔이지만 청소나 amenity 등의 서비스는 제공되지 않는다는 의미입니다.
와이키키 해변과 매우 가까운 Kuhio 거리에 위치해 지리점 이점이 탁월하지만, 그 덕분에 소음이 상당히 큰 편입니다. 호텔 건물 자체가 오래되어 방음이 충분치 않은데다 706호는 차도와 인접한 방이라 적응이 쉽지 않았습니다.
반면, 건물 뒤쪽에 자리잡은 수영장과 자쿠지는 주변 정원과 잘 어울리며 상당한 만족감을 제공했습니다.
전반적인 만족감은 지불한 가격에 따라 달라지리라 생각합니다. 단기간 머무르거나 장기 투숙 특별할인을 받는다면 모르겠습니다만, 일주일에 천달러 이상을 지불하면서 묵기에는 다소 아쉬웠습니다.
What a great location! Therese and Keoki were very helpful.. The room was tidy and well equipped. Just bring your own beach towels as only bath towels are provided; but having said that, there are beach chairs and beach mats available in the room for use. I would most definitely book through Therese again. It was such a simple and easy process. Thanks Therese! :-)
Let me just say this was my 1st air bnb. It has been many years since I stayed in Waikiki and if I never stay again I will be ok with that. It's basically a dirty city on the beach. This hotel/spot is an older place that is part if a hotel but not. It's a bit strange. The staff at hotel were not very nice because we were "private" stay. Which means none if the hotel amenities are available to you ( besides the use of pool) no parking ( have to do that next door) no beach towels, no maid service etc. Of course I was expecting it to be a condo not a hotel so I was expecting that.
The place was not as pictured. The photos are of the hotel rooms that are on the hotel website not the room we were in. It just looks a bit shabbier in person.
It's a dark room with a window a/c which you need to block
We didn't have enough towels but on the last day they brought more.
It's very close to beaches, restaurants , bars etc.
I know we didn't stay in room hardly at all so it serves it's purpose.
Host was not very quick to respond at first. On the last day they were very very accommodating with our late check out which was Soooo appreciated.
We enjoyed our stay in this unit: beds are very comfy, it takes about 5-8 minutes to get to the beach (& coffee shops!), the wifi in the unit works pretty well, sweet hotel pool/jacuzzi/patio/reading nooks, a/c works great, good value for price, after-hours check-in was very smooth!!
Thanks Keoki & Theresa!
Room was clean and bed was comfortable! Great proximity to beach, shopping, and restaurants.
There is some road noise from the balcony
Prior to the booking date, Ms. Harden responded promptly to all messages. She was happy to help and answered all my questions. She was friendly and accommodating. She gave us Keoki's number to call upon arrival.
During our stay, we dealt only with Keoki, whether it may be through SMS or a phone call. We never met Theresa.
Check-in is at 12. We arrived past 2pm and the room was a mess, obviously from the previous tenants. Keoki got his cleaners, and it took about an hour to finish. After a long flight, we were a little disappointed to see the unit that way.
The room is as described, but the photos are a tad deceiving. The beds were very comfortable, but definitely not queen-sized. The bathroom was a bit of a challenge-- it had no vents or windows. It also had a really bad, sewer-like smell which we informed Keoki about, but the plumber never came. We kept the sliding door open and bought air freshener instead. Watch out for the "pink slime" on the walls, too. Ten points if your body doesn't accidentally touch it!
Overall, the room is as dated as the elevator decor. It gets rather noisy at night, since it is in the heart of the tourist hub. The unit is good value compared to other places, but remember to put aside your hotel-experience expectations.

We are there daily and can assist with directions to the many local eateries, activites and entertainment.
