It is centrally located, right across the street from Waikiki Beach, and close to a number of shopping, dining, and activity destinations.

Amazing view, great staff, great service and perfect location
We have stayed here before (5 years ago), but I felt it deserves another review as it never disappoints. Our stay was 14 days this time. Upon arrival we were given our room with a partial ocean view on the 7th floor. The gentleman who checked us in, said to check back tomorrow morning as there would be some upgrades available. We came back at noon, and boy they did not disappoint, they had an Ocean Front room on the 14th floor available. Room #1405. He took us to see it and the second he opened the door and we saw that view, we were sold!! It was amazing. Our room had two double beds and they were very comfy, you always get lots of pillows. The bathroom has a shower only. It has an area with a desk, coffee pot and mini fridge. We noticed that a lot of the staff were the same from 5 years ago. Our favorites are "The Goddess" and "Baby Bear", and of course John. I'm sorry I can't remember them all, but everyone is so lovely to deal with. We will always stay at this hotel when we come to Waikiki as it's right across the street from the beach, and there are countless options for restaurants everywhere you look.

This is a small hotel located in the best part of Waikiki, just across the beach ,Torch Lighting and Duke Kahanamoku Statue. Location is its biggest adventure.
There are lots of shops and restaurants around and a bus stop is across the street. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and ok, but they need some upgrade. I recommend to book ocean view or partial ocean view room. You can watch a beautiful sunsets and surfers at the morning. This hotel is really worth money you pay for it. And sorry, but I took one orange fish from the bathroom. Now she decorate my bathroom reminds me of my vacation.
Awesome location and great price
We have just stayed for 5 nights in a Partial Ocean view room on the 12th floor. The view was amazing from 1202.
The room is small but has everything you need and the beds are super comfy. Rooms have bathroom, balcony, coffee maker, small fridge and in room safe.
Check is was very easy and staff are very friendly.
Located right in the heart of Waikiki, the Aston Waikiki Circle is straight across the road from the beach, super close to the Hop on Hop off bus (use the public buses at $5.50 US for a full day pass and easy walk to the bus stop) and Duke Paoa Kahanamoku Statue.
Eggs N Things downstairs and ABC store for bits and pieces right next door.
Nothing is too far away and you have an easy walk to most restaurants, including Cheesecake Factory, Teddy's, Denny's, and Kirin for great Chinese food (plus many more).
If we ever return to Waikiki again, we will stay here again.
14th floor - oceanfront center
13 night Hawaii vacation with only 1 night in Waikiki. I wanted an oceanfront room but didn’t want to pay the price. I “settled” on the best room in this little gem among the giants! We loved it! Walking distance to everything, a great view, and swimming directly in front. Yes, the bathroom is very small, as well as the room, but if you are spending your vacation in your room, you are doing it wrong.
It is a completely circular building with a balcony to each room , offering views of the city or Waikiki Beach priced accordingly. A word of warning if you want a specific view it should be clearly identified or you will end up with only half the view you want or none at all. The rooms are well maintained and comfortable. It's a little pricey, as is the resort fee for probably the oldest hotel on the beach front. It has a restaurant onsite but be prepared for a long queues/wait for service. There are other restaurants nearby but a little difficult to locate as there is some major renovations, revamping and town planning going on in the area. There is parking at the hotel however its an extra charge, extremely limited and very tight parking spots especially for large cars.
