It gets one star because of the view. On our first night we had to spend one hour on the phone with the cable company to get the wi-fi reset. It didn't work 2 days later and we just gave up. Mold growing on the vent in the bathroom. Ripped bedding. Broken furniture:chairs and an ottoman. The property manager said that the owner knows of the broken furniture and said to leave it. But the worst was the air conditioner which dripped water out of three locations and we had to put pots out to catch the drips because they informed us that we would be responsible for any damage. The next day the repairmen came. I told the property manager that I did not want to spend my vacation overseeing the workers. He said he would come but didn't. I called and he finally came. That was 3 1/2 hours of my vacation gone. We left, their property manager there to watch over our personal belongings, and he went to the lobby and had lunch

Manager Response

Aloha David,

Thank you for your review for the unit 629 at the Ilikai Hotel.  We did not know you were on the phone with the cable company as we could have easily stepped you through the reset procedures in just a few minutes.  Actually our on island contact did give you the steps to reset and then he did not hear back so he thought it went well.

The broken piece of lanai furniture which is a small side table and is something that is going to just be taken out of the property until it is determined as to its replacement or not.  We did not realize and saw the broken foot stool which we will also remove as a couple bamboo slats were broken.  The cushion that is on top of the frame did not allow us to see the broken slats.

We did see that the bedskirt was ripped so we have taken it out for replacement.  Sometimes the guests get the skirt caught in the frame or on the wheels and they do rip but it is an easy replacement.

We did reponse to your calls about the air conditioner and did follow through and get it repaired right away within a short time frame. We did work very hard to get someone there and called over 30 AC companies to do it. It is summertime in Hawaii and there are hundreds of thousands units.   We did bring you more towels as you requested to replace the ones that helped with the water leak.   Although we did send someone by to oversee the workers, it is not standard as most workers do repairs and installations without the guests present.  However when the on island contact got the call that the AC repairman was on the way, he himself was still about 20mins away so he called to let you know that the repairman was on the way.  The guest that was spoken to said they were not going anywhere anytime soon.   After speaking with the on island contact, he did ask you to turn off the AC because you indicated it was leaking badly and since you refused, we let you know that you would be liable if you did not comply.  As in any property there are unexpected repairs but we certainly do not want to further the damage to this unit or the one below it with water damage.  We have found that this type of problem with the AC often is caused by the lanai doors being left open while the AC is running.  The AC cannot keep up with work load and will freeze up and clog which can cause the dripping.

 We are so glad that you did enjoy the view which is pretty amazing!

We just spent 12 wonderful days at Ilikai Condo 629. This is our 3rd time to stay here. It's a great condo with all the amenities one might need. We like the convenience of the location which is in walking distance of most of the restaurants, stores, and parks that we like to visit. We had mid-stay cleaning service and received an email letting us know the day and time they would be coming and they showed up right on time. We rented a car one day and drove to the North Shore. We found better rates at Enterprise across the street than at the car rental desk in the lobby. The bus stop is very conveniently located outside of the hotel. We look forward to our next stay and highly recommend Condo 629!

Great view and handy to Ala Moana Shopping Mall, the unit was well equiped with full kitchen with all the utensils. The TV was broken but was replaced quickly with a new one, great and efficient service.Cleaning was poor, the Lanai had not been cleaned everything was covered with a black dust, the balcony rails were very dirty including dried bird droppings. We had to wear shoes inside since the floor was also covered with fine black dust. The cleaning fee of $135 seems rediculous for the quality of work done. The unit had been vacated the morning we arrived so would have been clean shortly before we arrived.

Manager Response

Aloha Kevin,

Thank your for your review for the unit 629 at the Ilikai Hotel.  It is a great view and a great location and we are glad you found it to be well equipped.  

We are sorry the TV broke but glad we were able to quickly purchase another one and get it installed right away as you mentioned.

I did speak with the housekeeper about the dust. She was in the unit the day before as the previous guests had to cancel. She did not notice any dust as you are speaking about and she did make sure any bird droppings were removed as it is part of the normal procedures. However the birds can arrive at anytime as in all of Hawaii.  Also the on island contact had done his inspection the morning of your arrival and is also who brought the TV in after your arrival.  He said he did not notice any dust and he said you did not mention it to him while he was there delivering and installing the TV.  If you did have this problem, we are sorry that you did not let us know as we would have sent someone over to take care of it.  

We are diligent in cleaning and inspecting the condos and we address any concerns right away.

The Condo exceeded my expectations!

This was my first time staying at the Ilikai and I was thoroughly impressed. The Condo kitchen was nicely stocked with the essentials, I liked the divider in the room it was handy for changing clothes etc. There was a nice view of the sunset from the lanai and of the conch horn and torch lighting in the evening. The only thing I would do different is Uber from the airport and skip renting the car, the parking was $28 a night unless you plan on leaving the area you dont need a car.

This condo is in a perfect location! It is on what I would call the "outer edge" of Waikiki beach. The condo is very clean and well maintained and furnished. The bed king sized is comfortable and there is a beautiful view from the lanai. If there was one thing that I would change it would be to have the bed on the other wall so you can open the curtains to that wonderful view in the morning. With the bed in the current location, we couldn't open the curtains because people in other condos can see in. Kristen was super to work with. The condo description and information was accurate and complete Ryan was very quick to look after a couple of small issues. The booking process was very easy and straight forward. I would definitely rent this condo again (or another property from Aloha Condos). You won't be disappointed!

It was great to go to Hawaii and stay at a great Condo st Ilikai hotel in a great condo 629 overlooking the Marina. We enjoyed staying in this condo because it is on the wing that is very close to the lift and on the shady side as this is what you need as you are able to sit on the balcony and relax and watch rhe boats going in and out and not getting burnt in the hot sun. They have a great service to all and have renovated up the swimming pool, there is also a great restaurant too, but this unit has a full kitchen with every thing you want. Condo is the best and modern furniture and we will return.

My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary here. The condo was clean, easily accessible, and well appointed. The reservation process was trouble-free. We enjoyed having our breakfasts and late night snacks on the lanai, overlooking the marina.The only minor complaints we had were, 1. when the condo was closed up for any period of time there was a stale metallic smell. (remedied by opening the sliding door)2. the condo is on the sunset side of the building, and the heat/light level was a little extreme. (a UV window coating would make a big difference.) but after the sun sets, if you open the slider it's heaven.3. the water was turned off on our floor, and several other floors by the Ilikai , for "Emergency repairs". this was afternoon/evening which put a cog into dinner plans, as we could not shower after a long day sightseeing. Not an everyday occurrence, so not really the owner's fault.

Overall, would we return? YES Would we recommend? YES

Over all, we had a wonderful stay in Condo 629, at the Ilikai. This is our 3rd time at a condo in the Ilikai. We enjoy the location and the walk along the beach path each day was something we looked forward to.

We found Condo 629 very clean and comfortable and the view across the marina at sunset was gorgeous. The view of the courtyard gardens below was very pretty and we enjoyed listening to the music floating up from the evening entertainment, as well as the conch blower announcing the setting sun. We like to eat out on vacation, so did not make use of the kitchen facilities, other than the fridge for drinks but it looked like the kitchen was adequately equipped for all types of cooking. The king size bed was comfortable and the air conditioning unit very quiet. The beach towels and chairs etc. were appreciated.

A couple of items to note: There were a few spots of mold around the shower door caulking and not being a fan of shower doors for this reason, suggest a shower curtain would eliminate that problem, as we found with shower curtains used in the previous condos we stayed in at the Ilikai. Although there was a dust pan and brush, it would have been nice to have a proper broom. FYI: close to the end of our stay, we noticed that the iron was missing (instruction booklet was still there as was an ironing board). We didn't need it so it wasn't an issue for us.

We would definitely try to book Condo 629 again! Mahalo!

Excellent Rental Agent. Nice Condo

Reviewed by Stephanie

Date 03/01/2017

Pros:Fast and efficient service from rental agent made this a great rental! The condo was nice and had a great view. The condo was very close to restaurants and other services. The bus & downtown trolley stop right outside the building & the service is easy to use to access most attractions or shopping. The condo was a very short walk to the beach & also had a nice pool. It included beach chairs, beach towels & other beach items.Large lanai balcony area is great for sitting outside taking in the beatiful view or enjoying the music from the venues below.

Cons:The tap water in the unit has a bad taste. I realize that this problem is probably not something that the agent could do much about. The icemaker in the condo uses the tap water so the ice adds the bad taste to your beverages. We purchased bottled water and used ice cube trays for ice.The condo needs new sheets for the king bed. The set on the bed were very worn and edges were very frayed & had strings hanging from edges. I solved this by using top sheet from the linens supplied for sofa bed. The sheet was too small but in better condition & it worked for our stay. The kitchen was lovely but not as well equipped as most rentals we have experienced. It could use some small cooking pans, some larger water glasses, a broom & a few other items. There are no overhead lights in the main area of this condo. Lamps provide lighting in the evening. Upgrading to better bulbs would would improve lighting in the evenings & make this unit an excellent property.

We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this vacation rental to others.

Thank you so much for your extensive review for the unit 629 at the Ilikai Hotel.  This condo is in a great location close to everything as you mentioned and does have amazing views.

We are not sure about the taste of the water and never have had anyone else complain about that.  I do know that no matter where you go if it is not what you are used to the taste can be different to you.

The owner has followed up on your review and has purchased the following for the condo.  New king sheets have been purchased as well as small cooking pans, large water galsses, a broom and dustpan, replaced stained pots and pans and upgraded the light bulbs.

Thank you for your recommendations and we hope you will be able to return for another stay.

I loved my stay at the iliki. The room had all the amenities I needed for my week there. The view of the Harbour from my balcony was beautiful.

Being on the 6 th floor I could see and hear the lovely music coming from the restaurant by the lobby. The location was perfect. Minutes to the beach and long walks along. Close to diamond head, shopping and main attractions. Loved the fireworks at the Hilton Hawaiiam village. Awesome display. Being there for the 75th anniversary was extra special and touring the Missouri with one of the survivors was even more awesome!

When we arrived and checked into our condo we were very happy. Everything about the condo from the pictures to the description was exactly as told. The crew at Aloha condos and homes were extremely helpful. The Ilikai is a beautiful property and loved the location near the harbor. It was away from the crowds and had a great spot for the Friday night fireworks. The condo's kitchen was nicely stocked with supplies and we ate the majority of our meals there. The view was wonderful and we loved the daily conch ceremony and also some of the evening activities down in the courtyard. I loved how quiet the room was. We never heard our neighbors and those we met in the hall were friendly and helpful. We will definitely come back and if the room is available we will try to rent it again.

From reservation to check-in to check out - very smooth. On-Island contact, Valerie was very helpful. The unit was exactly as advertised in pictures - great view and all amenities were provided. Perhaps the only thing that could change is the shower head - everything else worked fine - would not mind staying there again. A friend of ours booked on our recommendation through Aloha Condos Unit 1235 for April. Good location.

Had a great time staying at the Ilikai Condo 629 for 9 nights. The condo had every thing you wished for with wonderful views of the ocean and the marina and magnificent sunsets. We went on a dinner cruise so watched the Hilton fireworks from off shore. Close to shopping, restaurants and transport. We found the best shopping at the Waikele Outlet shops, about half an hour away by bus that we orgainised with Roberts and cost $15 each return. The Ala Moana shopping centre is only 10 minute walk away but to us quite expensive. It has a wonderful food court and on the top floor Bubba Gump restaurant which was great. Next to the Ilikai was the Red Lobster restaurant which was also good and over the road was Ihop and Wailana Coffee House, both good for breakfast.The whole experience from booking till we arrived was hassle free and Aloha Condos were very easy to deal with and would certainly use them again.

It was a pretty good location since I was there for a convention and the Hawaiian Convention Center was merely minutes away. Everything that was shown on the video clip what to expect was exactly what was experienced. It's just too bad the fireworks could not be seen in the lanai but if you go to the first floor and head toward the marina you can see it perfectly. All in all it was a really nice place to stay.

Family fun getaway

Reviewed by Danielle

This was our second stay at the Ilikai. I have a family of 4 with 2 little kids. These suites are perfect for families. Good value for your money with all the conveniences of home. The location cannot be beat with everything within walking distance (beach, pool, lagoon, grocery store, walmart, international market). The large lanai is great for kids to eat outside. There was also sand toys and beach towels available for use which saved buying our own.

The only suggestions I would have is because there is not a bathtub, that the shower in the bathroom be converted to a hand held shower head so cleaning little people and the sand that gets into every crease would be much easier. It would also be nice to have a tall broom in the room because even though we try to get all the sand off before coming up, it still seems to get tracked into the room on shoes. I would sweep just as I would at home if I could have instead of chasing the sand around with a paper towel on my hands and knees.

The room was not fancy but with 2 little kids I did not want to be on edge about the possibility of breaking anything. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable and the pull out couch was perfect for kids.

Unfortunately, our air conditioner in unit 629 broke on day 1, but I must say that the owner and property managers worked very hard to fix the problem. We were moved twice over the course of the week to other suites which was very inconvenient with 2 kids and groceries however, we were compensated very fairly for our troubles and everyone was very apologetic. Something like that could not have been predicted and I believe they handled it as best they could have.

I will definitely book here again. Thank you Rocco!!!

I couldn't have been happier with our condo and I thought the Ilikai was definitely on the nicest part of the Waikiki Beach. Just a fabulous view when you came around the corner and saw the lagoon and the beach and the beach was much quieter at that end! Lots of good restaurants and music places and no homeless people like at the other end of the beach.

Our room was great and plenty of space for three people. My 21 year old daughter and I shared the king bed and had plenty of room and my friend used the sofa bed and she said it was fine. The room divider provided privacy but you need to leave it a little bit open during the night to get the benefit of the a/c. The unit was attractive and was fully equipped - seems like it has been newly renovated.

Nice sunsets from our room but we often weren't there at sunset time! I couldn't believe how quiet it was there, no street noise at all because we were on the ocean side of the building. I guess i would have to add that the a/c was kind of noisy but I didn't mind because not having it would have been way worse!

All in all, the trip worked out really smoothly. Our contact, Rocco, at aloha Condo Rentals answered all my inquiries immediately which left me confident about the process. I loved the keyless entrance as well, nice not to have to keep track of keys.

I would definitely go back there again.

The Condo is very well set up with every conceivable thing you need. Even beach chairs,towels, mats and a cooler bag. Decor is much better than shown on the website. Seems sofa and lounge have recently been recovered. Glasses and crockery look new.Only negative we found was Condo occupants are not allowed to use the beautiful hotel pool but must use an old 1960 style pool which is very crowded due to the number of Condos. Owners of the Condos should unite to update this pool and surrounds. Suggest they also negotiate with the hotel to allow their guests to pay to use the hotel pool.Sitting on the Lanai of 629 watching the sunset is something we will always remember until we return again.

Thanks for taking the time for the great review. The pool you're seeing out the window of this property is not part of the Ilikai Hotel That property was sold off to purchase the Hotel in 2006. I believe it's a Marriott property now. As such no one at the Ilikai Hotel has access to that property's facilities.

And yes, I love the sunsets from the lanai!

The views of the sunset over the ala Wai boat harbor were awesome! We did have a little bit of trouble with high speed internet access (which didn't bother the adults at all, but the teenagers in our family were a bit dissappointed). This is not a huge unit, but for the price we paid we don't think it can be matched in value. When we come to Oahu again, we plan to stay at unit 629!

The whole rental process was very easy. Everything, as described, was carried out and explained thoroughly. The condo we rented was exactly as described on the website. It was very clean and comfortable. It met our expectations and our needs for our first visit to Hawaii. The location was ideal for us because it was near the beach, close to shopping & restaurants as well as the bus & trolley lines. We enjoyed eating at the Ilikai Bar & Grill (on premises) and Wailana Coffee House, which is within a short walking distance from the Ilikai. Both restaurants provided good food along with reasonable prices. As a matter of fact, we ate at both places at least 3 times each. The hotel staff is very friendly and the concierge is quite helpful in assisting with booking tours or just to offer information. The best thing about our rental was the location. The Ilikai is away from a lot of the busyness of Waikiki and the lanai on provides a beautiful view of the sunsets overlooking the marina. It was also quiet inside the condo unless the sliding glass doors were open. Usually there was music playing late into the night from somewhere nearby. The site states that #629 would sleep 4 people, but I wouldn't recommend it. It might be comfortable for a couple plus a child, but not 4 adults. Overall, we were very pleased with the condo #629.

For our 2010 stay in Rocco's condo, we were impressed with the total presentation, and of course, location. The 2010 disappointment was the noise from the construction works in the grounds of the Ilakai Hotel.

Since 2010, Rocco has maintained the property by re-uphostering the lounge chairs and bed furnishings, replacing the TV and installing new window curtains. The cleanliness upon arrival could not be faulted, The ongoing renovations around the Hotel continue, and having the painters on the lanai did not distract.

Unfortunately, the WiFi connecting to the Hotel service is poor (1 Mbps). Rocco should consider installing a room service (LaN at 100Mbps or WiFi at 30+ Mbps)as we have in the condo we moved to after Rocco's (to enjoy the views from the other side of the Ilakai Hotel)

Location: you just cannot beat it. Not in the middle of Waikiki is so much better so that you can have peaceful nights.

Parking: you have to use valet service, and $18/day might not be cheap, but boys are always there with smiles and at the end, I really do think it is worth it. I hate driving around looking for parking spots anyway.

View: sunsets were so beautiful!

Kitchen stuff: everything worked, and plenty of plates, mugs, utensils etc. absolutely no problem.

Bed: bed was firm and nice. I wish you had different type of pillows though. They were too soft for us.

Bathroom: everything worked: Maybe you might want to add a small size of soap for the sink, and leave a larger one for shower for guests’ convenience.

Keyless entry: first we had some problems locking, but once we figured it out and once we memorized the number, this was the best idea. Why anyone wants to use card key! Imagine losing the room key at the sandy beach!!

We stayed for 8 nights and we needed to change sheets during our stay. I noticed you had only twin sheets sets on the selves. Maybe you should change them to Queen size, just in case of guest’s longer stay like ours.

Gorgeous harbor and sunset views!

We enjoyed our stay at the Ilikai. This is a well-maintained hotel. Our condo was very clean and well-equipped. Views were awe inspiring even for myself as a local resident. A few concerns are the internet wireless did not work and the sofa and bed coverings are very old and dingy. Offsetting these issues was the very quick response from the local agent helping us. Definitely would stay here again even though there was construction going on right underneath us it ended each day at about 4:00 p.m. Mahalo for this affordable ocean view rental.

Pretty nice with a little bit of help it could be great!

Service getting the condo was very good. No question has to what to do. Location was good despite the new building and noise outside every morning. Good things -- kitchen was well stocked with dishes,etc. the dishwasher a great plus. Lighting generally fine. Not so good things - the bedding was terrible. The plastic sheet on the bed made it feel like you were in the hospital and it made the bed too hot. Bad! Also, one small bar of soap for both handwashing and shower for ten days for two people seemed pretty stingy. Toilet paper for two for ten days was not enough and we bought our own as that provided was of very poor quality. Need to do better with the bathroom stuff. Other than that a great time. Thanks.

We (2 adults, to children) stayed in Unit 629 and were very happy overall with the accommodations. I would not consider this a high end unit, but it is comfortable and nice at a very good price. We arrived early and Aloha Condos was able to accommodate our early arrival at no extra cost....thanks Rocco! View of Ala Moana boat harbor and sunsets were great. Building across the street still undergoing renovation but, other than a slight eyesore, it did not bother us.

This room was very quiet, no noises from adjacent rooms nor from outside. This is not in the heart of Waikiki, but only a 20 minute walk to the International Marketplace. We enjoyed being a bit away from the crowds and the extra walking was good for us.

The only difficulty we encountered was with the $250 security deposit authorization on our credit card...seems the funds transferred out of our account but the owner shows no record of receiving funds on their account. Still working with banks to resolve, check your bank statements carefully if you book here. (I believe this is an honest "mistake," Rocco has been very responsive in working with us to resolve this issue.

Other than that, we were very satisfied and would recommend this condo

Everything about the condo was simply fantastic - from the location to the view of nightly sunsets! The bed was extremely comfortable (I'm not easy to please when it comes to sleeping). Even though I had to make my own bed each day, it made for a much more relaxing vacation as I didn't feel as though I had to hurry out in the morning so the housekeeping staff could come in. The only thing that would have been nice would be a couple more bath towels. Found that I had to launder towels twice while I was there a week. Overall the condo was wonderful, clean, quiet, and well furnished. Even the construction going on across the courtyard was not a problem. We found very nice restaurants within a pleasant walk from the condo each evening - never ate in the same one twice.

No worries!

We had a wonderful time. The condo was perfect for a relaxing holiday and had everything we needed. There were 3 issues: the shower didn't drain and we were standing in 3 inches of water and we couldn't get the alarm to work. We were also disappointed to find the apartment block opposite (which is shown in the promotional photos/video) was under construction and not very pleasant to look at. Other than that, we thought the keypad was fantastic - no worries about losing keys at the beach. The location was great - very central.

Manager Response


We are glad you had a relaxing time in our condo. We wish, however, that you had let us know about the problem with the drain. We have a local contact that is available most any time, and a very responsive plumber that would have been able to fix the drain problem very quickly.

The building next door is being worked on, and progressing quickly, the bulk of exterior construction should be completed by the end of the year.

Condo 629 at the Ilikai Condo and Apartments was home away from home for us. Everything we needed was on hand, it was extremely clean and comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed relaxing on the lanai, watching the beautiful view and seeing the planes land and take off from the airport in the distance.

It was an unforgettable trip for us and we would love to do it again.

Great value

We really enjoyed our stay. It was a great location to enjoy the beach (only a few minute walk) and waikiki, as well as Ala Moana (beach and shopping center). Could do without a car at this location. Unit was relatively clean, well equipped kitchen; beach chairs and towels provided. A/C unit was a little loud when on the lanai, w/ partial view of marina and partial view of buildings (no view of water when in bed.) But it was nice to hear the Hawaiian music program every Friday evening while sitting on the lanai. Would definitely stay at the Ilikai again--maybe on a different section of the building w/ a more unobstructed view of the water--but would stay at this unit again if something w/ a better view was unavailable. Overall it beats a hotel room and is a great value. Great response from mgt to any questions we had while staying there.

We enjoyed our stay in condo 629 and dealing with Alhoa Condos. I have told a friend who will be visiting Honolulu to contact them and be sure to stay in condo 629. We had just stayed at a condo in Seabrook Island and were so happy to see the little things that go along way such as coffee filters and salt, pepper, foil, and plastic wrap, that the condo in Seabrook did not have. I know this items seen small but when you go to do something such as cook its very nice to have the items at hand. The decor was wonderful and updated, the view fantastic. Go to the restaurant on the 30th floor, go for happy hour and and early bird dinner (a lot less expensive) the view is breathtaking!! One thing I hope the owners might add would be beach chairs, umbrella, and a small ice chest to use on the beach. Also a book with information such as where the grocery stores are and directions on how to get to them. I do hope we can return again. A special thanks to Cat who helped us out so much

This condo is located at the end of Waikiki Beach and overlooks the marina. We were able to walk the beach and walk to the downtown area. Our room was large, clean, had a kitchen and a fantastic view of the mariana and ocean from the balcony. We watched ships come in and out of the port. It was very quiet and the staff helpful with any questions we had. We would definately go back if the opportunity is available.

I wanted a quieter time in Waikiki this year so opted for the Ilikai. Unit 629 was a very nice, clean, compact studio apartment with keyless entry. I loved this because I could leave everything behind and not worry about anyone (maids, etc.) coming in while I was away. Great pool, lagoon and beach moments away. Complete refrig, stove, microwave, etc. There is a remodel going on across the way but it did not bother me--nor did I have others in those rooms facing me. I would definitely stay in this unit again.

The condo was just as the photos show, a very lovely place. It was clean and pleasant. There was construction going on and it was pretty loud one day. One of the pools was not available and a couple of restaurants weren't available. Which is too bad, we would have enjoyed having a cocktail lounge on site. Hopefully the remodeling has been completed.

The property is clean and comfortable. It has great view too, but what really touched me was the flexibility of the management.

When we stayed there, my Mom was a little under the weather, so I called the manager the morning of the last day of our stay to see if we can stay a little bit longer that day since our flight home was around 11pm. Luckily there was no renter the next day. He quickly arranged the cleaning person to come later on and allowed us to stay until night, so that my Mom had some good rest. We only paid $50 for this late notice request. I really appreciate that.

Rental was clean and well taken care of. Cozy bed with nice sunset facing view, although a few buildings naturally get in the way.Located close to Aloha towers and chinatown. Very quite in the building and very private - no tourists mad dashing for the elevators.Owners are very attentive to your needs and respond quickly to your requests and questions.Just be aware of a few minor caveats:1. Parking is not fun - must weave around to the 7th floor to get parking. If you don't make arrangements with owner to get a hand tag parking is very expensive. Hand tag parking only accepts cash so be prepared to shell out. Persoanlly owner should have a space in the garage and let you use it. Additionally, getting into the parking garage is a pain, so many one way streets, if you don't come straight down Bishop you are gonna be frustrated.Street noise is a problem in the morning. Bedroom needs real curtains, blinds don't keep the sun out so it is a great alarm clock in the morning.Although there is a Long's drug at the base of the building, it and most other businesses close early since you are downtown so plan ahead.The kitchen in the condo is small and slightly sparse, just a small cooktop, a microwave and a small toaster oven, but it was ok for light cooking.ONe other warning, this unit cannot really sleep 4 in my opinion. Thehre is one queen bed in the bedroom and a small swivel couch in the living room/kitchen - can't see how one person- let alone 2 could sleep in it.Fair price for what you get though and being downtown especially for business was a plus.

Great property, especially our actual condo. Very clean. Very comfortable. The only thing we missed is being in the heart of Waikiki. We bought a bus pass but sometimes I felt like we wasted time waiting for buses instead of being exactly where we wanted to be. Every night we headed for the night shopping and it felt a ways away. For the price and cleanliness and feeling like we had a home away from home, the Ilikai and this specific condo was superb.
