We visited around New Years time 2015 and thought this was an adorable little place. Staff was very attentive and cared about little details of stay. There was a welcome drink on arrival which was a nice touch. Overall would recommend!

The place was all together good except for the smell of BO. I now know if a place offers something at check in to "freshen up "the room or "add to its appeal" get ready. I got to the room and was greeted by an odor that the fresheners offered at the front couldn't shake. I have no clue what...

I booked lovely room for myself and my husband for an up and coming trip in July this year in January as in last month. The booking was for free cancellation up until 21/7/2017, nothing else to pay and pay at the property.... all good. Apparently not. Checking my credit card details found I had been charged $555.00 US already....

Aloha Tania R, We're sorry to hear you are unhappy with booking policies instilled by booking.com. When booking with an online travel agent such as booking.com you pay the room rate directly to them same goes for the deposit. The only payment paid directly to the hotel is our resort fee, which is paid upon check-out. Therefore the deposit and...

Definitely a great find. Upgraded to ocean view and it was a decent room. Modern and smelled nice with the fragrance they let you choose when you arrive. The staff was too notch- every single one we met. It is a smaller hotel but location is decent. The downsides are that we choose it for the reasonable price rather than...

I stayed for one night in Hotel Renew and I found it to be quite average. The staff is extremely friendly and they do provide a nice breakfast buffet. The thing I liked the most about this hotel is the location. I did not rent a car and went everywhere by foot which was really easy. It's about a two-minute...

ALOHA! These were the first words we heard when entering the hotel where fresh juice and a cold towel was waiting for us. We were greeted by Rachel and Amanda at the front desk and were congratulated on our recent marriage without us even mentioning it (little touches like this made us love our stay).The rooms had a romantic feel...

This hotel was a nice place to stay for one night during our stopover. The staff were always very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great and healthy. The rooms were dark but comfortable, especially the bed. The bathrooms had mould beneath the silicon sealant but was ok. Carpets were frayed in the corridor. The location is great, being opposite the...

Decent hotel very close to the beach. Great staff, very helpful and kind. Parking challenging in area unless you valet for $32/day. Continental breakfast served daily in the lounge. Facility could use some updating, but adequate and clean. Would strongly consider staying again, especially if on a bit of a budget. Easy walking to all that Waikiki has to offer.

I literally chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews! I needed inexpensive, and I wanted to be on the East side of Waikiki for easy in/out traffic for visiting my daughter at University of Manoa. It is a modern boutique hotel a block from the beach with many ocean view rooms. Consistently among the best pricing on Waikiki for...
