Location very nice - rooms need updating
Posted Nov 24, 2016
The Aston Waikiki Sunset is located in a nice area, close to the beach, but is in need of some updates to bring it into the 21st century. Great to have a one bedroom with a kitchen in the Waikiki beach area for a reasonable price, but it is evident that this hotel is stuck in the '80s with its decor and furniture. The hallways could certainly use some new carpeting or some easy-to-maintain alternative. Same goes for the rooms - updated flooring and furniture could go a long way to changing impression to the guests.
Would much prefer the amenity fee be included into the price of the room. Not sure offering free DVDs is a huge seller anymore and if this was eliminated, but still include the WIFI and maid service like most other other hotels into the price would be sufficient. Resort fees would be a reason to look at a different option next time.
We were looking for a place that offered more than a standard hotel room in the Waikiki area that was reasonably priced, clean, comfortable, and allowed us to prepare a few meals if desired. This hotel met some of these goals, but was far from perfect.
