Christmas Vacation in Honolulu

Reviewed by sunseekers

Date 12/31/2013

Condo was adequate. Great view of the city, close to ala Moana Mall and we were able to walk everywhere, which saved us car rental. Buses were very handy if we had wanted them. Complaints: 1. Lanai door was broken and therefore no fresh air and not able to access our lanai. Very disappointed about this. 2. Phone battery was almost dead and we inadvertently forgot our cell phone. Almost impossible to talk to our children on Christmas day, or make a tour reservation, because the battery kept dying on us. Otherwise it was fine for two of us and we would return if the lanai door was re...

My husband and I stayed in this condo 5 days. We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay but in a prime location. We got that when we booked this condo. We got a great deal and the location was located on the marina and in close proximity to ala Mona Mall. McDonalds and aBC store is across the way. The location is great. The room was ok. The bed matress is a little on the hard side and the bedding appeared over used. The towels appeared clean, but had an odd color and scent to it.

This is the perfect location to stay at. Just a 5-10 minute walk to ala Moana Beach/Mall 10-15 minute walk to Waikiki. Nearby is also the lagoon where you can watch fireworks up close alongside the water on Friday nights. If you don't mind minimal, but clean accomodations this is the place to stay at. The TV is fairly small, but it's Hawaii! You should be out and about enjoying the sun and not cooped up in your room! The property manager is also very good at responding to questions so a+ for customer service.

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Studio Condo. It's the best location near Waikiki (approx 15 min walk and away from the busy traffic and noise) and near the ala Moana Shopping Center. Great restaurants and eateries are also nearby. Most of all the beach area for swimming as it is minutes to the Hilton Hawaiian lagoon and the strand of Waikiki beaches. No car was needed as we limited our activities to the Waikiki and downtown areas. Public transportation was easier than deal with parking fees which is not cheap.

The only negative was that the carpet in the hallway had been taken up for renovation and the floor was sticky from the elevator to the condo unit!!

We were very disappointed with this condo rental for the following reasons: 1. Upon our arrival the condo had not been cleaned since the last tenant - food, trash, and dishes were scattered about the kitchen and dining table. The bedspread cover was dirty and stained. When we called the onsite contact, Alice, she came immediately to clean and said she was never notified that we were coming. Alice promptly cleaned the condo and replaced the bedspread cover with a new one. However, when we returned we noticed that the toilet had not been properly cleaned and there were splatter marks on the ...

The condo had not been cleaned because you chose to ignore our instructions and checked in very early. When we have guests arriving and departing on the same day, the cleaners need to have uninterrupted access to the condo in order to fully prepare it for the next guest. Had you followed our very simple instructions, or at least requested an early check-in in advance, this would have been a much better experience for all of us. Your local contact is there to help, and had you given us the opportunity to correct any of our shortcomings during your visit, we would have been happy to do so.

Overall, we were very satisfied with our stay at this condo. It was safe, modernized and well-equipped. In respect of cleanliness, I would recommend washing of the windows, drapes and carpets.

If you are noise sensitive, take your ear plugs or if you have trouble sleeping you might look for a quieter location, away from the ongoing background noise of traffic (buses, trolley cars, taxis and motorcycles). At nighttime, the outside noise level did not subside until between 2:00 a.m. - 5:30 a.m. Otherwise, the location wa...

The unit/building was very nice, clean, and secure. All amenities are within very close walking distance. Not an oceanview but you spend all day looking at that so it was nice to have a city/mountain view when in the unit. Make sure you arrange to have quarters for laundry as there is no coin machine and it's difficult to get change. Highly recommend others to stay.
