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.

    Wedding weekend

    Staff is super helpful and friendly! We upgraded to a full ocean view room on arrival, the balcony area was large and the view was exceptional. The room was not large, nor a lot of space. The bathroom was good although the shower was very narrow. The room worked well for us though! We only sleep and shower there! Our mornings and evenings on the balcony were wonderful 😊 I have beautiful pics from our view. Overall totally worth it to stay there

    great spot

    Perfect location directly opposite Waikiki Beach (towels at reception) and next to many affordable restaurants, McDonald's and ABC Shops for supplies. The room was comfortable with two double beds, small office desk, fridge, TV and on-suite with towels etc.. Very helpful and friendly staff who were happy to let us have the room several hours early. Aircon is old and noisy with the shower pressure a little low but both adequate.

    Gross, filthy and smelly.

    This place is disgusting. Not sure how gave it a great rating. Peeling paint. Outside my room it smelled like a dumpster. I dragged the front desk manager up to my room and he agreed. Light switch doesnt work. Bathroom unclean. I felt like I was in a Motel 6. Pix totally deceiving. Gross and misleading place.
