Handy location to everything, lovely staff, very clean, good size rooms, only downside is how dated the rooms are. In saying that though they are very tidy and comfortable.

Good value

Posted Jul 22, 2014
This is an older hotel, but very clean and close to all amenities , front desk staff were very friendly and helpful, all our needs were met, I would stay there again , and the underground Free parking was a real plus , save your money for spending on other things , as you only sleep in the room , so why pay more when you don't have to

Ilima Hotel

Posted Jul 9, 2014
There were 3 of us using a room with kitchen facilities. We enjoyed our stay and the hotel was in a convenient position, close to shops and transport. The outlook from our room was pleasing. We were comfortable during our stay.

Get what you pay for :)

Posted Jul 9, 2014
Pros: The free parking and good wifi Free lieu making on Wednesdays
Cons: Decor, kitchen oven could be replaced, also a plug in jug instead of a stove top kettle
Location: A couple of streets away from beach but still really close and accessible
Friendly helpful staff. Great price for what's included, free wifi, free parking, full kitchen, full size fridge A tad out dated but clean and comfortable . Air con was loud, but turn it off and you have busy street noise. International market place construction was noisy which states it won't be finished until spring 2015

Budget Friendly Waikiki

Posted Jun 25, 2014
Pros: The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was large enough to accommodate our group of 5. Close walk to beaches and shopping. Budget friendly.
Cons: Room was not clean. Found items and fake nails from previous tenants. Didn't clean room very well during stay. Neighbourhood is shady with bar beside.
Location: Lots of shopping (Duke's Lane) and only 2 block walk to the beach.
When researching hotels in Waikiki for our group of 5, we were limited in our selection available. Ilima offered a large enough room at an affordable price for our trip. Room and pool area could have been cleaner and the beds weren't comfortable in the slightest, however, the staff at Ilima are very friendly and the location of this hotel is perfect for a few days in Waikiki. You can even view the Friday night fireworks at the Hilton from the balcony, which was great. If you are out at night, walk in a group as this hotel borders a neighbourhood bar with smokers filling the sidewalks nightly. Overall, you get what you paid for and are close to everything needed to explore Oahu at a wallet-friendly price.

Very good experience

Posted Jun 1, 2014
Pros: Location, views, friendly staff.
Cons: Upgrade rooms but then price would increase so a catch 22!
Location: Wonderful location. Close to all bus departure points to go anywhere in Honolulu. Day tour buses pick up from the hotel.
Enjoyed staying at the hotel. Rooms dated but comfortable. Staff wonderful, could not do enough for you. That includes reservation staff, cleaners, reception staff. Location excellent, very close to the all of the main transport areas in Honolulu and not even a five minute walk to the beach. Room overlooked canal and golf course to the beautiful mountains. Much better than an ocean view.

Middle of Waikiki

Posted May 26, 2014
Pros: Free parking and free wifi internet access for guests. Short walk to the beach or restaurants.
Cons: Mattress was a little hard.
Surrounded by taller hotels, so not a great view of the area, at least from the room I was in. Only a few blocks from Waikiki beach, easy to walk to. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance also. One of the few hotels in the area that offers free parking and free wifi for their guests.
