Room small but adequate, very clean , opt for an ocean view room at a higher level. Staff very friendly and helpful, on site restaurant always busy with long queues. We found the price of the hotel expensive as were most things on the island

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Loved the location and loved the price! This was one of the cheaper options we found as we wanted to stay right on the beach and not pay a fortune. You will be at the beach in under a minute…and I’d say it’s the ‘heart’ of the beach. When we arrived to the lobby (which is outdoors and not a...

While the Aston Circle has a good beach front location, poor service and impolite staff take away from the location. We stayed at this hotel in March 2017 and found the front desk staff rude and lacking typical hotel professionalism. Any requests, such as late check outs, will not be accommodated. If you’re looking for a great location with the...

Yes, the hotel was a bit retro and the room was smaller than I had expected but the view from the balcony (we paid extra for a view) offered spectacular sunsets. Right across the street from Waikiki, surrounded by shops and restaurants, easy access to public transportation (much cheaper than paying for tours), comfortable beds, good shower, beach chairs/umbrellas to...

Sure it's an old hotel with small rooms and even smaller bathrooms. On the other hand the location is outstanding with unbelievable views from lanai. The rooms are clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The beach right across the road is excellent offering both surf and a protected areas. Excellent eating and drinking spots surround. A gem.

We stayed in an ocean front room on one of the upper floors. Fantastic views of Waikiki Beach and out to sea. We loved to sit out on the balcony early in the morning enjoying the view. The room may be a bit small for some, but we knew that before we booked and it was good enough for us...

It really doesn't look so bad in the photos online. But in person it's pretty dumpy. And the "partial ocean view" is a joke... you have to go onto the corner of your balcony, try to see past other balconies, and the ocean is over there somewhere. Don't bother unless you're getting the full ocean view on a high floor....
