Pros: The pool area and pizza shop and free coffee and water machines.
Cons: The decor was dated and could do with a refresh.
Location: Two streets from the main strip, beach, shopping and good bus and shuttle service
This hotel is centrally located to shopping and the beach. The room was comfortable with a kitchenette and balcony. The queen beds were comfortable but we felt the sheets were not clean and fresh. There is a shuttle service that takes you to Ala Moana Shopping Complex next door. The pool area was lush and tropical with lots of seating. There is also a Pizza shop on the premises which was a novelty. Overall it was a pleasant stay. I would recommend it to families and couples.

Nice hotel and amazing staff!

Posted 26-Oct-2017
We stayed at this hotel on the first leg of our trip to Hawaii. The location is so convenient. You can walk to Waikiki Beach and many shops/restaurants. The room was spacious and clean. We were very comfortable. The staff is beyond helpful. They answered our numerous questions about attractions, hikes and activities. They went out of their way to make sure we were getting the most out of our trip. The pool area is very nice! The only slightly negative thing I would mention is the parking fee, but we only rented a car for 2 days so we just paid one night of parking. Overall, we were truly satisfied and happy with the Aqua Bamboo.

Great location

Posted 1-Oct-2017
Pros: Location and room size. Nice sheltered pool with nice, hot, Jacuzzi.
Cons: Provision of a courtesy room.
Location: A stone's throw from the beach and pick up points for all the usual tours.
The staff were friendly and helpful. Short walk to Waikiki Beach. I would describe the hotel and its facilities as tired but that said, for the price it was excellent and the bed was spacious and comfortable. I would certainly go there again and recommend it to anyone seeking a budget hotel. Only slight drawback was the lack of a courtesy room where we could shower and change before going to the airport after checking out at midday we had to hang around till 6pm. The hotel doesn't provide food but there are plenty of places to eat nearby. A fridge and microwave is provide if you want to take your own food back with you.

Good Location but not the best

Posted 2-Sep-2017
Pros: Friendly staff, nice pool area
Cons: Clean up the rooms. Parking fee is ridiculous
Location: Beach close by, shops close by,
This hotel was close to the beach and had a great location. It was a little run down IN the room, chipped paint, old curtains, bath tub knob broken, leaking, and a cockroach running around in the bathroom on our last day =[ =[ =[

Aloha Erin and thank you for sharing a review. I am glad that our friendly and helpful staff made you feel welcome and that you got a chance to enjoy our relaxing pool. I'm also glad you liked our convenient location close to Waikiki beach and attractions, but sad to hear that the room was not as updated as you had hoped. Your comfort is important to us and pest control is a priority. Rooms are sprayed monthly with daily maintenance by housekeeping. Unfortunately, cockroaches are very common during these warm summer months. We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced and will share your valuable feedback with our leadership team for careful consideration and improvement. We hope to have another opportunity to welcome you for a more enjoyable stay in the future. Mahalo.

Comfortable. Close to everything. Very helpful travel and reception desk. Only bother would be the loud air conditioning which other people have complained about . However , it did drown out the traffic noise . After awhile, you get used to it. Also ,no room service .

Pros: staff always friendly, helpful
we have stayed here 2 or 3 times over the years. staff is great. room was always clean. unfortunately, as with much of Waikiki, it is very noisy at night. you have to sleep with a/c running (if you are able) or with windows open using ear plugs. not something the hotel has much control over.

It comes with everything.

Posted 24-Jul-2017 on Orbitz
Pros: It had everything
Cons: The outdated decor.
Location: Close to the beach, shopping malls, restaurant, zoo.
The hotel is close to everything. Our room had a kitchenette with a cook-top, that was well stocked. It had pots, pans, dishes, cups, utensils, toaster, even dish soap. They also loan out beach towels at the front desk. I was very comfortable at my stay here.
