Inexpensive hotel, close to shops and beach.

Posted Jul 24, 2015
Pros: Location and price.
Cons: The décor is quite dated, and the Wi-Fi is only accessibly from the lobby which is inconvenient.
Location: Location is great. 1km from the main shopping centres and bus terminals, Waikiki beach and restaurants.
This hotel was quite dated, however, for the price it's definitely worth it. The room was clean and had a lovely view of Waikiki city, there is a rooftop pool on Level 6 and a laundry which was helpful. The staff were friendly and informative about the local area and attractions. The hotel is located within walking distance (about 1km) from Waikiki beach, Ala Moana shopping centre, main bus terminals, and plenty of great restaurants. Overall, the stay was pleasant and comfortable. I would stay here again.

Good for a bargain

Posted Jul 22, 2015
Stayed on the 17th floor. Staff was helpful and friendly. I enjoyed the short walk to Waikiki from the hotel. Great location for necessities. Not the fanciest, but was perfect for me, traveling alone with multiple activities during my stay.

Hotel needs a makeover

Posted Jul 21, 2015
Visiting family on this trip, when we got to the desk nobody was there. After checking in and got on the elevator which was hot, we made it to our very small room. The carpet was stained and discolored it was at one time a dark green but has since lightened to a lime green. The bathroom was small and the shower difficult to turn on. We rented a car for the stay and had to pay $25.00 a day. Don't think I will book at the Hawaiian Monanarch again!

Terrible

Posted Jun 29, 2015
Pros: Nothing
Cons: This hotel needs to clean it up , put new carpet in , patch walls that are falling apart
Location: Ala Moana shopping
The bed was like a rock, rug was old, stained and very dirty. When I asked about ice they said no ice machines and if I wanted some, I needed to go buy it at a local store. Very disappointed

Pass on this one

Posted Jun 14, 2015
Pool was nice, not heated, but nice. Laundry facilities were also nice. No signs anywhere. Just had to wonder to find both pool and laundry. No signs saying which elevators to use. Condos on one side, hotel on the other. I'm guessing it was beautiful in its hey day but is just old and musky now. SUPER thin walls; you'll hear waaAayyyyyy more than you want. Receptionist was flat rude every time we talked with her. It's within easy walking distance to lots of things. Shower was ridiculously short and dirty. I wished I would have paid the extra $20 a night for a decent hotel. And they charge $25 a night to park a vehicle.....cash only. Pass this one by!!!!

1 day, 1 night stay

Posted Jun 11, 2015
1. There is no (free WiFi) in the rooms. ONLY in the lobby. 2. The shower was hard to work. 3. The bed wasn't firm (there is a dip) as an old mattress would. 4. Hole in the curtain. 5. Hotel room wasn't cleaned well. Saw a few items left behind from previous guest.

Wer Budget bezahlt bekommt Budget!

Posted Jun 11, 2015
Pros: Die Lage! Es ist nicht direkt am Strand, nicht in der Einkaufsmeile! ... es ist hier kaum Trubel!
Cons: Vielleicht kann man auf die Betreiber eingehen und eine Renovierung empfehlen. Richtigen Preis fürs parken angeben!
Location: Rand von Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii, direkt am Ala Wai Kanal. Relativ ruhig
12 Nächte haben wir gebucht. Am ersten Abend sind wir angereist. Check-In war problemlos und schnell. Todmüde sind wir in die doch sehr (für uns) komfortablen Betten gefallen. Das Hotel ist in die Jahre gekommen und benötigt eine dringende Renovierung. Abgeblätterter Putz, vergilbte Armaturen und gesprungenes Waschbecken. Flecken an Lampenschirmen und Vorhängen. Teppich leider auch nicht mehr der jüngste. Wir haben das Hotel als Basis und Platz zum Schlafen genutzt. Den rest der Zeit waren wir draußen. Und genau dafür war es klasse. Es ist eben auch nur Budget. Insgesamt geht das Hotel über 17 Stockwerke. Dafür liefen die Aufzüge flott. Dem Hotel stehen exklusiv 3 zur Verfügung. Der Kühlschrank im Zimmer ist klein, aber tut seine Dienste ohne übermäßig zu lamentieren,. genau wie die Klimaanlage. Man merkt, dass die Wände nicht aus Stein sind, sondern Presspappe. Ab 10:00 abends wird um geminderte Lautstärke gebeten. Rauchen ist nicht erlaubt. Wird aber doch gemacht. Vor allem sehr gerne THC-haltige Produkte. Parken ist im angeschlossenen Parkhaus möglich. Allerdings kostet der Tag Parken jetzt 25 USD statt 20 USD wie auf Expedia angegeben. Der Betreiber hat dies im April erhöht. Hier muss man auch aufpassen, dass die Angestellten des Parkhauses einen nicht übers Ohr hauen. Das Personal des Hotels dagegen ist aber freundlich und zuvorkommend. Alles in allem hatten wir einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt auf Haiwai

most helpful staff I ever came across

Posted Jun 9, 2015
Pros: Staff, mainly front desk. ones I came across were most helpful.
Cons: room I stayed did not have windows I can open. it would have been nice. interiors were old but, it doesn't affect your stay.
Location: hotel is located like right beginning of Waikiki, you can access ala moana area or other shopping area near by theres bar down stairs too.
hotel is not really too far from beach. Room I stayed in was 1 room with 2 bed for price I paid it was nice and comfortable. what I liked about this hotel the most was staffs they were really nice and friendly, answered all my questions with very nice manner with smile. they were all friendly. I wouldn't necessarily every staff on the front desk are nice, but ones I came across were very professional. their service is probably reason if I were to visit Hawaii again I'd stay in this hotel again.

We chose to stay here because it's cheap and we planned to be outside most of the time. Just basic. Waikiki beach is some 20 minutes walk away. NO wi-fi in rooms, no free coffee or anything. Will hold your luggage after you have checked out for free.
