    Great position. Would recommend.”

    We stayed 8 nights at Luana Waikiki and found the hotel a great base to stay in Waikiki. We were on the 16th floor and had a great view across parkland to the beach and ocean views. It’s a short walk to the beach through the parkland. The staff were very efficient and friendly, the hotel and room were very clean and well appointed. The manager’s welcome receptions are a good way to meet other guests. Would stay there again.

    Would definately stay at Luana again.”

    Staff were very friendly and always helpful. Guys in the fish hook cafe were fantastic, and were very accommodating when we asked for dishes to be adjusted to suit dietry requirements. Hotel facilities provided excellent value for money, great pool and gym, as well as being conveniently located for the car hire (oposite), the beach, shops and Amoana mall. Only con was that the air conditioning was rather old and noisy and no bar. Although the managers free drink hour on Mon, wed and Fri evening was very welcome.

    Amazing staff, very accommodating. Lots of free amenities but elevator situation was very annoying. ”

    Lots of good stuff about this hotel! Great location, decent rooms, lots of amazing free amenities like free towels, beach towels, beach chairs, bikes, Movies, etc. Happy hour three times a week, and free yoga - although the teacher no showed one morning which was disappointing. I can't say enough about the staff, everyone was very friendly and kind and really seemed to enjoy working there. Jesse in particular was awesome, he was the valet and worked the morning shift and would always go out of his way to say good morning and ask how our day was. The elevators have been being fixed for a year and they are Brutal! You sometimes would wait literally ten minutes just for one elevator... I realize they are trying to fix them but even the ones that are working (including the new one) don't seem to be programmed right as they would stop at random floors all the time when no one was even there. Good thing people are on vacation time! I would stay here again and recommend it for sure!

    Good hotel in great location”

    Nice hotel, very clean and in a great location between Waikiki beach & main shopping mall. Staff were great, nice pool and outdoor area with small gym too! Bed was super comfy in room with full kitchen plus balcony. Free coffee and tea in the lobby in the morning was nice & fresh free apples daily, plus we attended a free wine, beer & cheese night which they put on for guests. Gas station, mini mart ABC store & coffee shop right across the street. Only negatives - lifts are very slow (1 was out of action during the stay so they took ages to arrive) There is no room service or hotel restaurant. Apart from that, everything was perfect and i would stay again :)

    Beautiful view of park and sea.”

    A large room with kitchenette on high floor with ocean view. Overlooking park and greenery as it is not close to other high rise or hotels. The room therefore was also very quiet. Free coctail party on some nights and free coffee or tea in the foyer each morning. Hotel far enough away from all the hustle and bustle but walking distance to beach and shops etc. a great position. A good small pool but sometimes difficult to find a free lounge. We always come back here. Always come back here.

    Really enjoyed our 5 nights here for our first visit to waikiki. The hotel was so convenient and for the price is great value. Good wifi connection and great view from the pool for Friday night fireworks. Our room overlooked the petrol station so we never sat outside on balcony but you are out so much of the time it didn't matter. Lifts can be slow- prepare to wait. Staff are extremely helpful and courteous. Would recommend.

    Valentines Day Fever.”

    Each room has a nice kitchenette (no stove) with cabinets and a sink and a small table. The beds are a good size. Located on the Kalakawa strip and close to many restruants. Nice views of the ocean and of downdown.
    The seattles best was under construction while we were there and had to leave to go get coffee. :( The pool is nice but akwardly placed. (it is still pretty nice to swim in)

    My wife and I live in Hawaii and venture to waikiki every once and a while to stay in a hotel and do the "tourist" thing. Overall the hotel is pretty nice for how much it is. The government rate is just as much as the Agoda rate so your getting a pretty good deal. If you live here in Hawaii dont be afraid to ask for the Kama Aina rate. Hotels wont bring it up but they will honor it with a valid ID. We have stayed in this hotel before and have had no complaints. The west most elevator is a little shakey, so rider beware. I would rate this a good stay for a couple on a get away or family on vacation.

    The hotel locates next to a gas station. It opens 24 hours per days. Even at night we were waken by the suddenly loud noises from autombiles or/and their drivers. You may asked why we not closed our window and turned on the air conditioner ?? The air conditioner was an old model and its working condition was even worse. Sleepless for the 3 night stay. No more....

    Disappointing ”

    This hotel is old, loud, busy. Not a relaxing place at all. We had 14 kids on our floor that were running up and down the hallways very early every morning and they would press ever button in the lifts. The staff did nothing about it. The lifts were so so slow, sometimes waiting 10 mins for it to come. The walls are so thin so you can hear everything. Twice we were in our room and had hotel staff bust into our room! We were on our honeymoon so I'm sure you can imagine how in relaxing that is knowing ransoms will come into your room as they please. One time 5 staff came barging into our room when we were asleep and works us up and started ripping cables from the back of the t.v. The staff have a real "can't be bothard" attitude. Every time we asked for anything they would brush it off. We would not stay here ever again. Also parking is $35 US a day which is CRAZY! And when you get there they make you pay "resort" fees.... Umm this is NOT a resort and they do nothing extra for that money, total rip off! Stay clear.

    Great location but some staff are not friendly”

    Free Wifi, Studio with Kitchen, Near the bus stop to Hanauma Bay

    We love the Free WiFi and the studio kitchenette. The pool is smaller than we expected. We met two staff not friendly and not professional at all. The first one we asked her where the No. 22 bus stop is to Hanauma Bay. She told us the wrong direction, and then we walked back to the hotel and ask again. And she told us another wrong direction. After we walked back to the hotel the 2nd time, she was finally willing to search the bus website and told us where it is. And she said we should google it by ourselves at the beginning instead of asking her. She even didn't say sorry. And the second staff we met was unwilling to help us mail the postcard even with tips. She said ABC store can sell one piece of stamp, but actually it doesn't. It sells a book of stamps but we only need to mail one postcard. I never met a hotel not providing mailing service. And I think the hotel staff are not professional for tourist information and thus wasted us lots of time.

    Well priced, reasonalby close to most amenities etc in Wakiki, friendly staff

    We spent 5 nights at Luana and enjoyed our stay. We were looking for somewhere to just relax after a 6 week trip across the States and this hotel suited us perfectly/ The standard room with kitchenette was just what we needed and the location, although off the Beach, is still walking distance to all that Waikiki area has to offer. Would recommend for people looking for quality at a reasonable price who don't want to pay a premium to stay right on the beach.
