If you want to live large, yet save a little in Waikiki, then look no further than the Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel. It is centrally located, right across the street from Waikiki Beach, and close to a number of shopping, dining, and activity destinations. With its amazing ocean views, unbeatable prices, and whimsical architecture (designed to resemble a Chinese lantern), the Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel is bound to put a smile on your face.
This place took us by surprise, I have to admit. We’d reserved a “partial” ocean view room, but when we arrived, we were immediately asked if we’d like to upgrade to a “full” ocean view room! Of course we accepted, and the next 3 nights were spent in great comfort. The balconies are great, but watch your trunks! One dude’s pair flew off and wound up on the roof of the adjoining restaurant.
My only complaint is that the doors slamming tend to echo throughout the entire floor. If you’re a light sleeper such as I, this might be a problem, but even I’ll admit it wasn’t THAT bad, and it only happened one night....at 3am.
Next door is a GREAT restaurant called Eggs ‘n Things that gives a 10% (15%?) discount to hotel patrons who show their key card.
We were given a second floor “Ocean Front”room right above the restaurant. Room 204. Not much view as it’s so low. Just the restaurant roof top and the street. Very disappointed. Super loud with the elevator and guest letting their doors slam shut. Couldn’t sleep past 6:00. I’m typing this as I’m in bed Not Sleeping at 6:15 am. We are visiting from Maui. Won’t stay here again and don’t recommend due to the noise. Not relaxing in the least. Also very tiny bathrooms.
One positive is our room is very clean and that is super important so great job housekeeping team!!!
Being one of the first hotels on Waikiki Beach it is showing its age, but still a nice place to stay, you are only in there for a short time, to sleep.
Very handy , right on Waikiki Beach, walk across the street and there is the famous beach.
Pleasantly surprised with this resort. The location is literally just opposite the beach. It’s not a huge resort. It has no pool but you don’t need one with the ocean being so close. Beach toys and mats are help yourself. The rooms are compact but well positioned, may be a bit squishy for a family of four. Had a nice modern feel. We arrived at 10.30 in the morning and was given a room straight away. Which was really nice of them considering check in was at 3pm. Very, very clean and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Restaurants and abc stores are abundant. Eggs n things is right at the bottom of the resort. We didn’t eat here but the lines for it were constantly long. Very popular. Lovely place to stay.
I would do it all over again.
I had the room at the top on the 14th floor. The view was mesmerizing. My girlfriend and I sat on the lanai for what seemed like hours enjoying the view. For what you pay and the value you get at this beachfront hotel, it was well worth it. The rooms were clean with a cool beach boutique vibe. There's no pool or fitness center but who needs it when you have the beach across the street. There's also Eggs N Things downstairs if you get hungry. The location of this property is a winner.
