Dated, but well located and clean

Posted Dec 18, 2014
Pros: The location away from the noise and crowded night life suited us. The price point was OK given the time of year. $200 u.s.
Cons: Change the wall paper and update the general decor of the rooms.
Location: The Queen Kapiolani is accross from a major park and close to the southernn end of the main beach. More relaxed and less crowded
On a recent trip to Hawaii with limited hotel accommodation we found our family of three needing an extra five days at short notice in the lead up to Christmas. This is a busy time in Hawaii with major hotels pre-booked or very expensive. We used Expedia to narrow our search and found the Qeen Kapiolani at the Diamond Head end of the main drag overlooking the park and entrance to the Zoo. $200 per night for a room on the 15 th floor. I should be frank and say the Queen has seen better days. Probably built in the 1960s the rooms are spartan and small by todays standards. However, that being said the rooms were clean, servised daily ,with a small balcony and a view over the park. The Hotel rooms were probably refurbished in the nineties with new bath and plumbing and while it looked dated the facilities were clean and efficient. The hotel has a pool and decked above the Lobby on the third floor which was great to just relax after a day at the beach or the many other attractions on the island of Honolulu. The staff were a little more casual than the usual but being an Australian that was fine. Overall, the service was good , the location a little removed from the main action but still close to the main beach. No complaints and reasonable given the time of year.

GREAT location

Pros: The location and helpful, friendly staff
Cons: Nothing
Regrettably my stay was only a brief stopover but will certainly return for a longer stay....I received a very warm welcome, all staff were very courteous and helpful and I was delighted with my room on the 18th floor....very clean and comfortable with excellent amenities and a superb view!

Pros: Room and location
Waikiki Stay. We selected the hotel based on location and rate. We were surprised with one of the best views I have ever had on Waikiki. Thanks Queen Kapiolani!

Room from hell

Posted Dec 15, 2014
The room was to small the bed couldn't fit two people and the bed was next to the door where you can hear everyone slamming their doors. The bathroom ceiling had a hole, the walls had red big stains. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. It's over price and rundown.

ダイヤモンドヘッドの見える静かな環境。なんといってもリーズナブルな宿泊料。

Posted Dec 1, 2014
Pros: リーズナブルな価格。
Cons: 朝食のメニューがもう少し豊かだといいけど。。。
一番賑やかなワイキキ中心部からカラカウア通りを東へ徒歩約10分。ワイキキの動物園に面した静かな環境。リーズナブルな宿泊代。朝食は3階コーヒーショップで。朝焼けのダイヤモンドヘッドを 楽しめます。プールサイドのテーブルも利用可能。

いまいちでした。

Posted Nov 28, 2014
プールの写真が素敵でオーシャンビューでもそれほど高くなかったのでこちらのホテルを選びました。 2日目にトイレの流れが悪くなったと思ったらバスタブの排水口から水が上がってきました。 フロントに電話をして修理には来ましたが謝りもせず帰って行きました。こんなもんでしょうか? ホテル内の案内も無く、何処に何があるのかもわかりませんでした。 フロントもあまり感じがよくありませんでした。

Staycation

Posted Nov 24, 2014
Short but very nice, I would come back again , it's a nice location but it would have been better if I was staying at the higher floor , the view of the diamond head would have been great instead of seeing the roof in the way, but not bad for a last minute reservation .
