Hawaiian Monarch Hotel is a jutting high rise offering the perfect location right at the entrance to Waikiki. The large clean rooms offer great value for the money and the hotel staff is often praised by guests for their friendly manner and willingness to help. The hotel is within an easy ten minute walk to Waikiki Beach and less than three kilometres to Honolulu Zoo and Kapiolani Park. The park is great for hiking and picnics.

Excellent staff

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The staff on reception were excellent. The room was great. It was a short walk to centre of Waikiki & just across the bridge if you wanted to travel into Honolulu. Would definitely stay here again & recommend to a friend.

was meh at best

Room booked for a week with four people REGISTERED, had to track down house keeping everyday because they would only leave two towels. The bathroom was dingy and black mold was visible in the shower and on the walls. The lady who checked us in argued with me and gave me a hard time. No WiFi it's 7 bucks a day, no parking what so ever, you can pay it's 20 bucks a day and I'd pay all at once we stayed a week and ended up paying for 8 days because the parking attendant got the times mixed up. If you are young single with no kids and don't mind or won't be using the room much it would be ok I guess. Not for families or people who actually want some comfort. I can only say one really positive thing about this hotel, proximity to Restaurants and points of interest is pretty nice.

Budget Hotel

After reading a lot of negative reports, we hesitated at what to expect , our room overlooked the canal on the 15th floor of the 44 floor building . Have no complaints exept sometimes it was very noisy, (sirens). 10-15 min stroll to the beach & 15-20mins to shopping mall. They were trying to please. Overall a good budget hotel.

Staying at Hawaiian Monarch

Stayed 3 nights at this hotel. Room is clean but a bit old. No wifi, coffee & tea only provided for 1st day. A small aircon installed next to bed head emitting noisy sound at night. Incorrect Airport shuttle fare($13pp one way not $9 as shown on hotel webpage). Location is a bit remote to waikiki activities. Everything else just met standard.

The distance was a good walking

The distance was a good walking distance to Waikiki shops, however, I like the exercise. The hotel did not provide mini bar nor did it provide coffee/tea facilities in the room. The view on 18th floor was very good. The room had dreadful acoustics through the wall. I could hear next room conversation and at 4am, this is not good. The reception was not able to provide activities or tours around Waikiki and one receptionist forgot to put down my wake up call at 5am. Lucky I set up my mobile phone. This was not acceptable. The bathroom had no amenities provided other than a very small shampoo and conditioner which did not smell healthy for hair. Nor did the water from taps. Very chlorinated and again, did not smell healthy. Saying all the above, I would not discount this hotel if you are looking for a cheap hotel just outside the Waikiki strip. Just be prepared to stay in a 2 star hotel and pay the cheap and reasonable price it offers through hotelclub website. Thankyou.

The staff were very helpful, the room spacious and clean, the view from the 23rd floor panoramic, and the beds very comfortable. The bath needed a good clean up. Coffee supplied 1st day only! Located just 80 metres from the main drag, and about 500 metres from the heart of Waikiki, it was very good value for money. Would stay there again - yes.
