If you want to live large, yet save a little in Waikiki, look no further than the Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel. Centrally located on Kalakaua Avenue and directly across from Waikiki Beach, the hotel features whimsical architecture (designed to resemble a Chinese lantern) and is within walking distance from the Honolulu Zoo, Royal Hawaiian Center, Waikiki Aquarium, and other popular island activities. With an oceanfront location and unbeatable room rates, the Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel is a gem in Waikiki.
Not a nice hotel but it was what we needed it to be for a few days. The parking situation is horrible and they charge a resort fee... I understand charging a resort fee for a resort that has an awesome pool and beautifully landscaped grounds but this has nothing and zero amenities and zero grounds. It’s honestly ridiculous that they charge for parking with what the parking situation is. There aren’t enough spots for cars and the lot is often blocked. If you are dead set on coming to Waikiki it isn’t a bad place to stay but if you’ve never been to Hawaii I’d recommend staying as far away from Waikiki as possible.
Exciting views of beach, ocean and peoples
Room is a small but makes up for that with amazing views. had partial ocean view , on the side of the building. Central location being directly across from the beach and grocery shop ABC next door. Friendlies staff, can arrange trips, taxis etc. Some street noise but gets quiter around 10pm ....Nice beach, surfing lessons and swim area is close across raod
Amazing time as always at Rm1305
There's no place like the OCEANFRONT rooms (1404 & 1305) of this awesome hotel! The panoramic view of the Kuhio and Waikiki beaches combined is a picture so perfect! This is the main reason why we kept on coming back to this hotel. It's like a home away from home. Thanks to all the staffs, you all made our vacation complete. Keep up the good work God bless you all. Aloha!

No frills budget hotel
(San Francisco, California)
This is a basic, no frills budget hotel. I usually stay at the larger resorts when in HNL, but since this was a short 3 night trip we decided to stay here to save some money. I probably wouldn’t stay here again because it lacked amenities, but overall it was a nice stay for the price.
What I liked:
- Great location (right across the street from the Duke’s statue).
- Staff was very friendly and accommodating when we asked for a late checkout.
- Beds were comfortable
- Balcony with ocean front view was amazing!
- Concierge service (although they didn’t help very much)
What I didn’t like:
- Bathroom and shower were REALLY small!
- lots of outside noise - garbage trucks, leaf blowers in the morning (sliding glass door is old and not double paned). We were in the 5th floor
- No real lobby area
