Although the hotel is little outdated it still has some great qualities. To start, when you check in everyone in your party gets a refillable water bottle and there is a filling station on the first floor. Also located on the first floor are restrooms, a game room and the business center. They have coin operated laundry on site and...

We had a group of over 100. Most of them were high school age. The hotel accommodated us without too many problems. The bathroom could use a good scrub and repainting. The shower head had to be tightened up by us to work correctly. There was an alarm that shook us awake at 5 am on our first morning. Sirens,...

I recently stayed 4 nights at the Ambassador Hotel in Waikiki. The staff was outstanding (a 4+), but the room was a different story. the room was clean, but the condition was very poor, not just dated. The kitchenette appliances were rusty, the walls had chips in the plaster and were repainted with a color that did not match the...

My room was spacious and clean and all the gadgets and appliances (the room had a kitchenette) worked. The mattress was much softer than I like but not lumpy. Nice location too. There was no radio in the room, nor was there a music station on the cable TV, but with mostly dependable WiFi it was easy to connect with...

HISの激安ホテルプランで宿泊。 ホノルルは何回も来ていますが、今回が初めての宿泊です。 <部屋> 13階のトリプルルームに宿泊。ベッドが3つあり、広さもよかったですが、汚かった。まず入ってすぐに明かりをつけたらゴキブリ!ゴキブリとそのゆかいな仲間たちです。まずは駆除しました。風呂場にもゴキブリを駆除した後(壁に足だけがのこっていた・・・。)もあり、本当に気持ちが悪かったです。風呂場は換気が悪いのでかなり湿気ているのにクローゼットが風呂場にあって不思議でした。 新しいトイレットペーパー(紙で包まれている)を開けたらゴキブリが入っていました。ので外に速攻捨てました。 冷房の音は本当にうるさくてつけて寝れません。4月だったので、窓を少し開けて寝ました。もちろん網戸がないので虫がまた入ってくるのを覚悟で。 換気扇?が部屋にもあり、うるさくて寝れません。そこにほかの方もかいてありましたが、タオルや紙を置いて寝ました。 もちろん安いホテルなので、コーヒーやお茶はおいてありませんが、湯沸かし器はありました。冷蔵庫もあり。コップもガラスのものがありましたが、気持ちが悪く使いませんでした。 <WIFI> 無料でパスワードをくれますが、パスワードいれなくても使えました。 <洗濯機> ここの洗濯機は比較的安かった。5ドル以内で洗濯から乾燥までできました。 <駐車場> 25ドルです。しかし、満車だから別のパブリックパーキングを利用してくれといわれました。アイランドコロニーか、ワイキキゲートウェイの向かいにあるパブリックパーキングです。出し入れできませんが、12時間以上で25ドル程度です。 <客層とエレベーター> エレベーターは本当にぼろかった。いったん止まりそうになったりして怖かった。客層も悪い。パーティーをしている若者がたくさんいます。誰かベランダからバケツで水をこぼし、車にかけるいたずらをしていました。もちろん車には人が乗っています。口論になっていました。夜、夕食から戻ると、ホテルの前にパトカーが停まっていてホテルスタッフと話していました。なにかあったみたいです。セキュリティ上、問題がありそう。 <従業員> 本当に失礼な従業員がいます。Cathyという人です。彼女は明らかに観光客を小ばかにしているし、英語ができない客には一方的に無礼な態度をとります。まぁホノルルだし、観光客はどんな態度をとってもいくらでも来るし、構わないんだと思います(笑)日本人の方の評価を見るといいみたいですが、私にはどこがいいのかさっぱりわかりませんでした。もう二度と安くても利用はしません。 I was staying here for 2 nights and it was horrible. Once I opened the door, Room 1311, there were some roach. It was disgusting. Also the staff named Cathy was very rude enough to discriminate Chinese customer saying "NO CHINESE NO...

But this last stay is beyond any words that can describe the experience I had. Simply put, I will find another place next time. I'm sure my list of business doesn't affect them at all. But...
