Perfect location at a great price. It's on a lower floor with no view, but also no wait for elevators, which are notoriously slow in waikiki. A hotel in the same area with the a parking spot would cost at least $100 more per night.

Great position, across the road from the Hyatt Central which is next to Ross department Store where all tours pick up from & drop off. We coulld not asked for a better location. There is a bit of noise at night which you will get anywhere Would highly recomend, clean, and well located. Check in & out so easy! Thank you Nikodem for a great place to stay! Aloha!

Walking distance to Waikiki Beach, shopping bars etc. We loved staying there and the extras (boogie board beach towels etc) really came in handy and added extra value to the stay. Didn't realize that you had to keep the room in clean condition until last day. Also, your right in a busy area which is convenient but not so much if you're a light sleeper. But if you like to be where the action is this place is superb! Highly recommend!

Aloha Sylvana! Thanks for staying with and thanks for talking time to leave this wonderful feedback. Yes, studio is located in the very heart of all the action , no it is not always completely silent , some noise is a trade off for most central location possible. We hope to host you again during your future travels to Waikiki ! ~~Mahalo~~ !
