Sporting a fun beach motif and an 'underwater' mural in the lobby, this whimsical hotel provides a subtle blending of Hawaii's rich past with today's modern amenities. Built in the shape of a circular Chinese lantern, it is across the street from Waikiki Beach and within walking distance from the International Market Place.

    Huge sacrifice for the location

    Beach-front rooms were disturbingly noisy. First, noise from the street (we stayed at level 8, with small terrace) then the strong wind noise from within the building due to its round shape. Rooms are much smaller than they look on photos with LG air-con system from the 90’s. I guess being beach-front, this hotel does force you to make huge sacrifices. Pros: close to everything including the very best - turquoise water of Waikiki Beach.

    Good Location, but there are better alternatives

    Really nice location, but just an okay value. Be aware that the price quote online does not include taxes or fees including an amenities fee. The only thing we used was wifi which should have been included with the room like a tv. This was not disclosed when reservation was made. I’ve stayed at 4 Waikiki properties and this was weakest in terms of value and quality of room.

    Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel

    Very good location. Clean rooms. Comfortable beds. No pool, but beach right across the street. Price was very reasonable considering the proximity to the beach. Limited underground parking, which was very useful to us.

    Beware of additional charges at the time of check-in

    I was surprised with additional charges at the time of check-in which were not disclosed at the time of booking. In fact, it was assured what was charged at the time of booking was the final cost and no payment due to the hotel but yet presented with an additional fee to pay or leave forfeiting what was already paid.
