Free parking was a bonus, and it’s reasonable value for what you get in Waikiki. But there were a few large stains on the carpet in the room and the kitchen appliances were pretty dated. Good room size, view and location.

Nice Hotel close to the action

Pros: Good location
Cons: Bathroom & kitchen could do with a refurbish
Stayed six nights - room spacious with full kitchen - bathroom small but adequate - Bed & pillows comfortable - good location away from the crowd yet walking distance to most things including Waikiki beach.

Better then expected!

We were very surprised with how nice this hotel is. I read some reviews after booking so was a bit worried. The staff are very friendly with 24hr service. Our room was very big for a hotel room & very clean. Beautiful views of the mountains from our balcony. A short walk to all the main shops. Only complaint is the air conditioner was very noisy. Will definitely stay in again.

Spacious, not luxurious

Comfortable, clean and spacious, but dated. There were notices of carpet replacement commencing, that will help for future visitors. But we didn't pay top dollar, so it fit our needs of saving a few dollars and going without luxury.

Good location, affordable for Waikiki!

The Ilima is a friendly budget hotel with generous family rooms and a good kitchen for cooking breakfasts or dinner. Theres' a decent sized balcony but ours was too windy and blocked in by buildings to enjoy - so ask for a room on floor 8 or above. There's a tiny pool on the ground floor and a seperate sun deck on a higher level (but why sit there when you have the beach!) It is set 3 blocks back from the Royal Hawaiian with the canal right behind - which is good for running along in the mornings. It is only about 5 mins walk to the beach but the street has a few low-rate hotels in it so is a bit shabby and you have to walk through the Holiday Inn alleyway - or Duke's open marketplace (cheap trinkets) to get to and from the beach. It is close to a v popular Japanese restaurant and Hola Hola mini market which is handy. Waikiki is very congested and expensive so this place is a good find to save a bit of money and get away from the crowds. Ask for a room above level 8 (there's 16 floors) as we were on level 4 and stared at car parks and shabby buildings. It is clean and serviced daily so would recommend for those not planning to spend their time on the beach or out shopping!
