Home like comfortable stay

Posted 18-Feb-2018
With spacious setting with mini kitchen and dining table along with writing desk, it was home and very relaxing. If you are looking for mordern appeance, maybe this is not for you. But, the room is neatly sorted and very well cared; I feel the hotel management’s affection to the property and care for guests.

Lovely hotel close to all activities!

Posted 12-Feb-2018
We stayed here for 11 days, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a modestly priced hotel. The location is handy to everything we needed - groceries, beach, restaurants, shopping, car rental, bus stops, etc. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Our studio room was absolutely clean with enough room for the 2 of us. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The cupboards are dated but everything worked. The pool is small but very private - it gets sun from about 9:30 am to 3:30 pm. It's not a luxurious hotel, but is good value for the price. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice older hotel

Posted 30-Jan-2018
Totally enjoyed our stay at the Illima. Great location with very friendly staff. Walking distance to most places in Waikiki. They give you a map with directions of which bus to take if you want to go further afield. It was easy and straight forward. I only wish we could've had a room at the back of the bldg. over looking canal. Ours was a city view room- and that was OK. 2 plus block walk to Waikiki beach to watch sunset. Tons of places to eat nearby.

Cozy and close to everything

Pros: Free parking, Full Kitchen, nice rooms.
We really enjoyed our stay with Ilima. It was our first trip to Hawaii and we this hotel was everything we were looking for. The room and beds were great and the full kitchen was really helpful. We were able to buy food and cook it ourselves and that helped keep some of the costs low. We also rented a car and everywhere else seemed to charge a fee but this hotel did not. We never had a problem finding a spot. We loved staying at Ilima and if/when we go back to Oahu in the future we will stay here.

Best Hotel for the Value of your money

Posted 29-Dec-2017
We’ve always stayed at Ilima everytime we visit Oahu/ Waikiki.. Very clean, warm and friendly staff, prompt service everytime we have requests. Proximal to the beach, shopping areas yet tucked in an area that’s quiet, away from the loud noises of traffic and tourists.. Special thanks to Drina & Emi at the front desk for their warmth hospitality..

Good for the money

Posted 11-Dec-2017
Pros: Everyone was kind and helpful.I loved that I had a full kitchen.
Cons: Perhaps a blender in the kitchen area.
Location: Great location, was within minutes to shopping, restaurants, about 10 minute walk to Waikiki Beach, Public transit was great.
Best experience, clean, friendly, comfortable, close to everything. Is the décor dated, a little bit, did it affect my stay? Absolutely not! If you are judging the décor only, you are being pretentious so go elsewhere. Did not use the parking, but it never seemed full. I am so glad I chose this hotel. I will definitely be back again. Best time to sun at the pool is early afternoon on.
