Description
Royal Kuhio Condo with Sweeping Views, Pivate Lanai, Full Kitchen, Parking

This property is professionally managed by Ali'i Beach Rentals, so if this particular condo isn't available please inquire about our other convenient vacation rentals. Feel free to contact us if you have questions before booking online.

Positioned at the center of world-renowned Waikiki and just a five-minute stroll to the ocean?s edge, the Royal Kuhio (2240 Kuhio Ave) is the perfect home base for a Hawaii vacation. Whether you seek relaxation, shopping and dining, or days filled with local exploration and adventures, our Royal Kuhio condos offer tons of amenities and are perfectly suited for couples, small families and budget-minded travelers.

All our Royal Kuhio condos have fully equipped kitchens and a private lanai.
Amenities also include a FREE Wi-Fi, FREE reserved parking, FREE local phone and 24-hour security. This property offers a pool recreation deck, small gym, BBQ area, playground, tennis court and on-site laundry facilities. If you use the bus, the stop is right next to the building!

Centrally situated in the heart of Kuhio Avenue and steps away from the newly renovated International Marketplace & Dukes Lane ? everything you need is right on your door step!

From this great location, you can easily take a quick swim, hire a surfboard or jump on a beach catamaran. Stock up on groceries at the Food Pantry - Waikiki?s only supermarket is just 3 short blocks walk. If you don?t feel like cooking, plenty of take-out options and many of Waikiki?s finest dining establishments are close by. At night, simply wander out to enjoy live music, catch a show, shop until 10pm or watch the street performers on Kalakaua Avenue entertain.

The sleeping arrangements are very convenient with a queen and single bed in the bedroom along with a sofa sleeper in the living room. Leave the bedroom accordion doors open for extra space or shut them for a private bedroom.

Many rentals in Waikiki cost a lot more to rent and are not in as good of condition. This is a clean and convenient condo and is a great value for the price.

Royal Kuhio City 1BD on the 24th Floor
Stephen R. from Sooke, BC recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in June, 2018
Our experience was great. The unit is as advertised and was perfect for our family of three. The building was very clean and well maintained. The unit shows it's age but it's fine. If you want 4 Seasons, stay at the 4 Seasons! It was great being able to cook everything we wanted and the kitchen was fully stocked. I couldn't get the dishwasher to work but it only takes a minute to wash by hand so not a big deal. The twin bed was very hard but my son was fine with it. Linens were clean and comfy. Bathroom could use an update but it was functional and did the job. Great having so many extra towels. They provided beach towels, chairs and boogy boards which was great. Laundry was convenient though expensive. The one thing is the elevator. There were two of the three working and it took a long time, sometimes, to get to and from the rental. Just depended on the time of day. It didn't ruin our trip by any means but just a heads up that you'll get nowhere fast at times! We enjoyed our stay very much and will consider staying again when we come back.

Response from Alii Beach Rentals
The building has not been able to give us a repair date on elevator situation. It has been very frustrating for all of us. Other than that, it seems like you got exactly what you expected and we are happy to see that in the review!

This is my 2nd stay at the rental and I love it as much as the first. Clean, quiet, and close to everything. The 2nd key was not in the room when I entered but the property management fixed it quickly. I plan to stay here whenever I visit Waikiki.

Affordable, Convenient, Comfortable
Francine T. from Truckee, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 11 days in February, 2018
This condo is big enough (bigger than a hotel room) to be comfortable; very convenient to the beach (where I spend my day surfing every day). It's also only half a block from the buses that pick up people in the early mornings for island tours (I know - cuz I walk by them every morning :) ) Super close to restaurants, Food Pantry and the new hotpot place across the street.

ANNUAL HONOLULU VACATION
SUSAN N. from RIVERVIEW, ZZ recommends this property.
Stayed for 10 days in November, 2017
WE ARRIVED ON THE 11/24 FOR A TEN NIGHT STAY. WE CHECKED INTO ROOM ON THE 24TH FLOOR. WE HAVE BEEN RENTING WITH ALII FOR SOME YEARS NOW AND WERE UNHAPPY WITH THE ROOM FROM THE MOMENT WE WALKED IN. I HAD RENTED MY SON AND FRIEND AN APT ON THE 12TH FLOOR AND WAS HAPPY WITH THIS ROOM. WE ADVISED ALIIBEACHRENTALS OF OUR UNHAPPINESS AND THEY WERE VERY SWIFT TO OFFER US ANOTHER ROOM IN THE SAME BUILDING WHICH WAS FAR MORE SATISFACTORY THAN THE FIRST. I WILL CONTINUE TO USE ALII ON OUR ANNUAL TRIP AND FORWARD THEIR NAME ON TO OTHER FRIENDS TRAVELLING TO HONOLULU. THANK YOU

Response from Alii Beach Rentals
Thank you Susan, we were happy to help. Just to be clear: that the condo you rented is a 1 bedroom, with a partition, and the second condo is a "true" 1 bedroom. Very clear in description and pics on website.

Convenient location
Rhodalie Y. from Juneau, AK recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in October, 2017
The condo was spacious enough for our family of 3. It was conveniently located and we had no issues with walking around Waikiki. Having a assigned parking place is a luxury in the area, so it was a great amenity to have. The AC was a bit loud, but we were able to sleep through the noise. The bedding were great, but the towels and shower curtain could be replaced as they were stained and worn out. Overall, we would stay here again.

Vacation Rental that will ruin your vacation
Jun Yong M. from Vancouver, BC does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2017
The unit was laterally good location. The instruction for getting keys, parking and how to get into unit was crystal clear. The park is that the unit comes with free parking for those who plan to travel around the island by vehiclds. The unit was generally not clean. The carpet can use another shampoo. The unit exhibits high frequency noise that keeps you awake during night. This forced us to find another rental unit. The vacation rental company did not compensate much for our inconvenience and still managed to charge for 1/2 cleaning fee and full rental for the nights we stayed for. I would not recommend this rental unit nor the company.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Alii Beach Rentals
Well this is a shock, only because we met many times to discuss the issue, offered alternate properties, and let you out of a rental agreement to make things right for you, your wife, and your 5 month old. We refunded all of the remaining nights which we agreed upon in person with a handshake. We will always work for a positive solution but we know we can not make everyone happy.

A guest from GLOBE, AZ recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in March, 2017
It was a few minute walk from the beach, shops every direction. very busy place in the middle of down town. We had a flood and the manager was right on top of it. thankful for that, however over all wasn't really the stay I was expecting. It was clean, however not really up to date as the picture perceives it to be, smelled like old musket, dirty, ghetto. It was a good deal yet, my next stay will be elsewhere.

Response from Alii Beach Rentals
Great marks on the ratings, just maybe not for her. in the end. Travelers will find that the most legal vacation rentals, short term, and in Waikiki are in the older buildings on Kuhio Ave. As she said, it was clean and at a great location. For the value, you can?t beat The Royal Kuhio units!

It is possible to ruin a Hawaii vacation if you stay in this unit
christine f. from melville, SK does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in February, 2017
I could not and would never recommend that anyone stay in the unit Royal Kuhio City 1BD on the 24th Floor (unit 2403)! Disappointing, unkempt and unsatisfactory are three very good words to describe the unit that we stayed in. Upon entry there was an undeniable smell of stale urine in the unit that lingered throughout our entire stay, even though we attempted to air the unit out. Not only that, the unit was filthy. We left a message with the property manager to complain and they did not have the courtesy to follow up. It looked as though the carpets had never been cleaned (there were large stains everywhere) and we did not feel comfortable using the kitchen due to its uncleanliness so we had to eat out every meal as a result. We attempted to vacuum (there was an old vacuum in the unit?s closet) but it would not even pick up a small piece of string. Not only was it dirty, but the unit was extremely loud due to the poorly installed louvered windows that do not seal. The wind howled through the louvers and throughout the unit every night and was so loud that getting a decent night?s sleep was impossible, even with the earplugs we were forced to buy and wear throughout the duration of our stay. The wind pressure made opening the door to the unit difficult, so much so that I am guessing a frail elderly person would not be able to get it open on a ?bad? day. I am feeling extremely ripped off for paying what I did to stay in this unit. For many of us, going to Hawaii is a once in a lifetime opportunity and staying in this unit is a sure fire way to ruin what should be a great holiday. The property website?s description that this unit ?is a clean and convenient condo and is a great value for the price? is completely false but for the fact that the unit is fairly conveniently located. You will also not ?save an average of $100 a day per couple on food? preparing meals as the website states as you will likely not be comfortable using the kitchen.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Alii Beach Rentals
This is a very detailed review and we will try our best to improve. The carpet is about a year old and the new sofa is less than a year old too. It has been windy winter. We will look into the windows at our Royal Kuhio building, clean the carpet as scheduled, and we will look into the urine "smell" claim.

Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016
I had an excellent experience with Ali Beach Rental at ROYAL KUHIO CONDO. my vacation in Hawaii was a little bit expensive than last year in Vegas, but I had nothing to complain through Royal Kuhio during my stay. The hotel is very clean, my room which was 2403 in perfect condition, no smell, no problem and the best thing was that I LOVE the view from my balcony, the lake, the golf course and the football field and basketball that I could see people regret and I will definitely recommend my friends to Royal Kuhio.

great location, clean, comfortable unit but can use some update
Robert V. from Kent, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in May, 2016
The property's at very convenient location. 5 minutes walk to Waikiki. McDonald and Starbucks are just across the street. Free parking is a big bonus. Swimming pool is small for swimming but plenty for dipping and for children. The sunning terrace is huge with adequate number of chairs. Laundry facility is a plus and reasonably priced ($2 per wash). The building is secured with access card required to garage and elevator with security guard at main entrance. Every things provided work properly (air con, kitchen appliances, TV & internet). Two improvements needed: (1) the queen size bed is very soft and sagging. It needs to be replaced. (2) The carpet in living area is old with lots of stain spots. Replace it w/ hardwood or laminated flooring. Overall the property is old but well maintained. If you expect luxury, high end unit look somewhere else.

Was a good place to stay when you want to be away from it all while being close enough to get involved. Could do with a bit of a refresh as it is getting a little old and musty smelling.Beds and pillows could benefit from update.Great to have a kitchen and some extra room then a hotel room.Having parking was an asset.Had some unexpected maintenance required for the pool which was disappointing as pool was out of action for 3 days.

Great location! Walking distance to everything in Waikiki! No car needed but since we had a rental car it was great having a parking space because there's no where to park otherwise. For the size of the unit it had a full kitchen! Full size refrigerator, oven/stove and a dishwasher! The unit was clean. The only downside were the mattresses and sofa bed. They need to be replaced. Also great view of the mountains!

We had a wonderful stay in rm 2403. Bed was comfortable. Close to downtown and within walking distance of bus, beaches, zoo, convention center etc. The condo was clean and comfortable, but could use a face lift with new carpeting or flooring placed. Will use them again on the next trip. Thank you.

Lovely place to stay, a little dated but has everything we needed. Very clean and comfortable, with great air con and modern appliances. Alii were so easy to deal with, mainly via email but it was no trouble for them to accommodate our requests. The app that is sent to use prior to your visit is fantastic! Easy to follow and full of useful information. I would highly recommend family and friends to stay here.

malia w. from santa clara, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in February, 2015
Pros:Convenient location, not too far from beach. Close to shopping and restaurants. Lovely view of mountains and canalGood priceSmall, simple room but roomy enough for four adultsKitchen had all you needStaff available and accommodatingParking includedA/c if neededCons:Elevators take a very long time and there is ongoing work on them. They are jam packed full most of the time with guests, housekeepers and other employees. The lock box location is inconvenient for check out and in, but there is probably no other alternative. The sofa bed mattress was very thin and uncomfortable. Staff did offer to make accommodations for us, but we ended up just sleeping on the couch itself. I think it's a silly requirement to have dishes cleaned and all trash removed prior to checking out when you pay a cleaning fee.

Royal Kuhio - not so Royal
A guest from North Hollywood, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 8 days in February, 2015
I would have to say I am slightly dissappointed in the accomadations offered at the Royal Kuhio in Honolulu. As per the suite itself, the bathroom sink was backing up and a nasty smell was coming from it. The kitchen sink faucet was in need of repair. The sofa bed was very uncomfortable and needs to be replaced. The building itself has only one functioning elevator with the second one working periodically. The third elevator was out of commission for the entire stay. Unfortunately I could not be recommending this for a future stay.

Visitors from Minnesota
Elizabeth S. from Maple Plain, MN recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in December, 2014
The property was build a while back and it needs some serious improvements.The unit we rented had everything we needed when you vacation. It would have been a perfect place if the carpet was clean. Once you see huge dirty spots in the middle of the room you start questioning the cleanliness of the place. The old decor or old furniture did not bother us , but replacing the carper if the spots canot be cleaned would really help.The upholstry on the chairs in the kitchen was dirty too, so it tells me that the place is cleaned only on the surface and things that should not be overlooked are overlooked. Royal Kuhio has an incredible location, so please do something about few small upgrades and improve the upkeep and we will be back.Cleanliness is the most important thing when we rent apartments. We just did not feel the Apt 2403 was clean. I have to complement the security person , who was very helpfull when we had questions and handled the elevator problems very well.

One bedroom condo rental Royal Kuhio #2403 in Dec, 2014
Jianlan S. from Mercer Island, WA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in December, 2014
We rented one bedroom condo claimed for 4 max. The room was very outdated that we called for maintenance twice during our 4 day stay. The room is way too small for a family of four especially the bath. The towels and sheets were not very clean either that one sheet still had large noticeable stain on it which looked like blood stain! The location was great though. I would not recommend for families. If minor upgrades are made to the room, I may recommend to friends with only 2 people in a party.

2403 Royal Kuhio 15 night stay
A guest from Winnipeg, MB recommends this property.
Stayed for 15 days in November, 2014
The unit was clean except for the carpeting which was clean however heavily stained. The building itself and grounds were clean. The unit is very dated however it seems to be well maintained( except for the carpeting). It is also very small. Found the bed uncomfortable and the air conditioner very noisy. There was a water leak from the unit above at 2am one day which Alli and Kuhio security did respond to when I called. The location is good however the building and unit is very dated. I might stay at the Royal Kuhio again however would probably look for another unit first. It did meet my needs for the two weeks there.

Waikiki in November is Great to leave the cold behind in Canada
A guest from Calgary, AB recommends this property.
Stayed for 16 days in November, 2014
The location is excellent near Royal Hawaiian Shopping Centre and DFS Duty Free Galleria. Close to Food Pantry. Major routes for TheBus smack in front of the lobby. It is very safe to go out during night hours to shop or wine and dine with the throngs of tourists. Excellent mountain views. Watched the rowers practicing their drills on the Ala Wai Canal. Traffic noise was not bad at night. I would recommend painting the entire suite with the same green shade on the main wall. Having a blender is a great asset to make your own smoothies or daiquiris. Easy walking to various Waikiki beaches. May wish to replace the linoleum and rug with ceramic tile that is easy to clean. The elevators are being upgraded for the next 9 months. Once that is done, this gives the Royal Kuhio an advantage over similar properties. I will be back to Honolulu either 2015 or 2016.

Royal Kuhio
Tim P. from Anaheim, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 10 days in October, 2014
The Royal Kuhio is a high-rise (38+ Stories), for much of my stay, 2 of the 3 elevators were broken, which led to wait times for an elevator of 15-20 minutes. Royal Kuhio does not utilize FOBs for parking and elevator access, instead they use the ancient metal dog-tag cards that are very tricky to use which led to lines getting into the parking garage, or getting into the elevators.In unit 2403 we had to remove the back tank cover of the toilet after every flush in order to put the flap down, and water flowing to fill the back tank. Very annoying.Also, the cabinet door under the sink fell off the mounting hardware. Not impressed with the Royal Kuhio building, though booking and interaction wtih Alii Beach Rentals was very good.

UPDATE: Royal Kuhio Elevators are Completely Renovated! Thanks for your input. Yes there were some long wait times while the elevators were being updated. Very sorry for this inconvenience. Also, sorry for the cabinet and toilet issues. We do have a very responsive maintenance department that would have fixed these issues right away had you informed them. But we know how it is on vacation... sometimes you don't even want to bother. Anyways... take care and thank you.

Royal Kuhio 2403
A guest from Antioch, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 8 days in September, 2014
My experience with our stay was ok. It was a place to sleep as we weren't there most of the time just in and out of the room. My bad experience though was when I went to do my laundry downstairs at the 7th floor as I was sitting doing some reading at the picnic table which was right next to the laundry room. I stood up to go check on the washer if it had stopped while I left my book and cell phone on top of the table came back and my phone was gone. It was quite early in the morning around 7:30am figured no one will take it as it was only myself and the maintenance guys walking back and forth doing some cleaning. I asked one of the maintenance guys if he saw my phone on the table he said he didn't and to go and ask the other guy. I am really disappointed that that happened as I have a lot of personal information on my phone. Now I'm back home without a phone and have to save up to buy a new one :( . As for the building and room a bit out dated and the only problem we had with the room was roaches and when we first walked in the room it had a really bad mildew odor which I think came from the sink but at first I thought it was coming from the carpet. Other then that I will not be coming back to this location.

UPDATE: New Carpet Installed in Royal Kuhio 2403! We made building management aware this incident. Not sure if they figure out who took your phone in the laundry room, but we hope so. We do have this room on a regular pest control schedule, bit it's an uphill battle in the tropics. Thankfully we rarely get a pest complaint anymore in Royal Kuhio.

Review of 2403 Royal Kuhio
Nicki M. from Williton, OO does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 10 days in May, 2014
This property had cockroaches in the kitchen, to be honest the apartment needs complete renovation and quite frankly unless you want to receive a good reveiw would recommend you take it off your books altogether as it does not meet up to expectations. Also there was no cleaning solution to enable you to keep the bathroom respectable during the stay, 3 people showering for 10 days without that supplies was not acceptable. The kitchen counters was over run with cockroaches even though we did not prepare food in there so obviously a problem that has been there for a while - absolutely gross and unacceptable. Even when arrived started to unpack and saw very large cockroach in bedroom ... even more gross. so to sum up quite frankly the charges you are asking for this apartment are quite ridiculous, people expect a place to be clean even if not modern facilities! ... will not be considering staying again as the apartment was grotty with a list of things wrong with it ... only wish I had read the reviews before I paid as they were all true. The only good thing about it was the location!Mrs Maclean

We have stayed in this condo property previously and were happy with the units we stayed in the past. However, we were greatly disappointed with unit 2403. It was very old unit with no recent upgrades. The unit was very dated and in need of major renovations. The mattress was extremely old and uncomfortable. We did appreciate that fact that parking was included with our rental. The rental management company was courteous and very professional. The instructions prior to arrival was very detailed and easy to follow.

Stayed for 4 days in March, 2014
The condo we stayed in was small for 3 adults but adequate. It was in need of many repairs. The balcony door was extremely difficult to open in fact we avoided going out their due to this difficulty. While the condo was clean when we moved some furniture to make room behind it was dirty and looked like it hadn't been cleaned in quite a while. The air conditioner was very noisy and needed repairs. We did though enjoy our stays the building was in a fantastic location. When we first arrived we couldn't turn on the shower so ran maintenance and the man was very prompt and helpful. We would recommend this company to others though maybe not the condo for any more than 2 people.

The reservation process,the contact to "Alii Beach Rentals"and the check in/out went very smoothly.

Unfortunately the place is run-down and was quite dirty when we arrived....especially the fridge! Since we wanted use it for our food right away, we cleaned the fridge ourselves. Even though every costumer has to pay 129 $ cleaning fee! That's quite steep for a dirty fridge and greasy cupboards! "Alii Beach Rentals" offered to send the cleaning crew again but by then we had already cleaned the fridge and the drawers.We asked whether some kind of refund would be possible - but it wasn't!

Alii Rentals are the best. Maintenance crew were very responsive. They replaced a badly torn curtain and steam cleaned the rug and old sofa for us. This building has year round residents as well as rentals. The residents upstairs from this unit and very noisy. Sounds like heavy furniture being dragged across the floor starting at 7-7:30 am. There are probably no rugs up there and the sound may be caused by handicap equipment. Recommended for early risers and short term stays only.

If you want to be in the heart of the action-beaches, shopping, restaurants-this is the place for you!

The building is very clean, has great security,and lots of amenities.The condo had everything we needed-very well stocked! Our only suggestions for improvement are: a bit tired, needs some paint on doors etc,curtains, sheets had holes in them and should be replaced; newer lighter beach chairs-the director chairs(in bags)are too old and heavy to be much use for anything-and it would have been nice to have something one could take to the beach. We rented a car and explored the rest of the island-the chairs would have been great to take. Thank you for a great stay!!

A guest from Kelowna, BC recommends this property.
Stayed for 13 days in April, 2012
We stayed at the Royal Kuhio for 12 nights, found the check-in process very easy and had lots of space. We really liked that there was security, especially at night and found everyone very friendly and helpful. Although we would have preferred an earlier check-in time and perhaps to meet someone from Alii Beach rentals in person, our overall stay was great and we look forward to staying here again in the future. We really appreciated that there were beach towels and mats for us to use and how the kitchen was stocked with what we needed to make our stay more like home. Mahalo!

Royal Kuhio
Kevin W. from Regina, SK recommends this property.
Stayed for 30 days in March, 2012
This suite needs to be updated in a serious way. It was very clean and the location was great. Ali'i Beach Rentals had the place stocked beyond our expectations. We had to buy wine glasses and a water pitcher to complete the inventory. The furniture and cutlery and knives need to be replaced immediately.

Royal Kuhio Stay
Doris K. from Winnipeg, MB recommends this property.
Stayed for 30 days in February, 2012
One thing we found was because the hotel is situated on a very busy street, that there is a lot of road noise (ambulances, firetrucks, buses etc.) all day/night long. However, our overall experience during our stay was a good one. We would like to thank Shannon for her quick response to all our needs.

Great Condo and fantastic location
A guest from Runaway Bay, OO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2011
We really enjoyed our stay at Royal Kukio in room 3009 and would recommend it and your service to everyone, we were very impressed with your professional way you went about advising us of arrival and departure details and found everything as you said. We couldn't complain about anything. One thing was missing in our unit and also our friends in 2504 and 2403 is that there was no plug for the kitchen sink and I felt only 1 teatowel was not quite enough. Also for safety we felt that there should be a guard rail in the shower and some of our party were elderly and had trouble getting into the shower. Other than that all was wonderful and we will certainly be back to stay in Royal Kukio and use your service.thank you

Good vacation accomodations at a great price
Michael K. from Albuquerque, NM recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in November, 2011
Alii was very thorough in keeping us informed about our rental: contract, expectations, directions for check in and check out. We have stayed in different rooms at the Royal Kuhio on two other occasions. The building is older and is showing some signs of wear but is still in acceptable condition. The cost of this room was quite a bargain given its size, the amenities, and assigned garage parking (which is really an asset). We had a great stay. We will use Alii the next time we go to Honolulu - very satisfied.

Our "Waikiki Dream vacation"
Elaine A. from Richmond, BC does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 10 days in September, 2011
We arrived to our rental - greeted with a foul order. This odor basically greeted us every time we entered. Repeated tried airing the suite but to no avail. The lower kitchen cabinets are rotten as are the bathroom ones. This is an older property - not what we would have expected for the price paid. The only redeeming feature was the bed(s). That heaven for that as we would have bitterly complained. Decided not to use the kitchen much as were concerned about safety. Probably would not stay in the Royal Kudio again nor would we recommend it.

Jean M. from Langley, BC recommends this property.
Stayed for 10 days in August, 2011
Carpet was very stained but was getting replaced the day after we left. Not 4 star but you aren't paying for it here. Everything went smoothly with reservations and stay, was very clean and comfortable even though not fancy. We'd go back.

Yes, the carpet was just replaced and looks very nice. It's been a pleasure having you as repeat guests the past few years and we are looking forward to taking care of you next time. Mahalo

Stay in Royal Kuhio 2403
Heeyeong J. from Honolulu, HI recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in July, 2011
The stay was generally okay except a few things. The location was excellent to look around the city and the beautiful beaches. However, kitchen sink smelled and water did not drain well probably because previous guests did not care about the food remains in the pipe and cleaning staff missed to check up the sink. And we had to ask someone to check up the possibility of clogged sink the next day of our check-in. We couldn't notice the switch on the wall that grinds up food remains in the pipe, which was hidden behind a microwave oven, until the half of our stay passed. Anyway, it would have been much nicer if you made a comment on the switch in your check-in guide.

Dissatisfied Customer
Monique G. from Hillsboro, OR does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011
Just going to list the issues in no particular order. 1. Getting your key by stopping in a short drive way on a busy street and stooping to getting it from a locked box. 2. Entry looks nice but it smells of urine cakes. 3. All the elevators are filthy dirty. Change the carpet out for crying out loud. 3. The room was straight out of the 70's, literally. The furniture was so old the Goodwill wouldn't take it. The pic on the Internet looked much newer. We walked in and our jaw dropped. Carpet was absolutely filthy. Cleaning it was not going to help.. The owner must be some cheapskate. He or she should live there as punishment. We didn't take our socks off if we didn't have to.4. The pillows had hair all over. Fortunately there were many in the room and we used the best ones. 5. The couch was so old that feathers were poking out and were stabbing me. It too was filthy. Owner should be embarrassed. 6. All the outlets were so old we could not plug anything in. They seemed rusted. Twice we tried to force it and saw sparks. This alone should cause that room to be unrentable. How much does it cost to replace, I bet less than 50 bucks. Fortunately there was one modern power strip that we could use, but still. 7. Wifi worked intermittently, so we hooked up to the room next door. 8. The door was really hard to open. I doubt any small children could open it in an emergency. This is unacceptable..9. Pictures on wall were crooked and the place needed spackle and paint really bad. There are probably more things but I think you get the picture. Now the good things.1. Location was excellent. Two blocks from all that shopping, wow. Beach was one block more and it too was excellent.2. I'm really trying to find something good to say about the Royal Kuhio room 2403 but I can't. Any Motel 6 betters it.

Great vacation!
A guest from Vancouver, BC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2011
We very much enjoyed our vacation in Hawaii. The location was perfect! The condo was good for the price. We were just disappointed with the sofa that looked very old and the coffee table that was damaged on the top. Also the cutlery drawer was a bit smelly. Other than that it was great! We especially liked the fact that we could check ourselves in and out.

The Royal Kuhio
A guest from San Jose, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2011
We spent a week at this property and consider its location highly desirable, being in close proximity to various shops and attractions in Waikiki. The condo also had excellent security, making it very difficult for non-residents to enter the facility. We did have problems with the phone which management corrected immediately by providing us a temporary cell phone. We had difficulty contacting the property manager, but was fortunate to get assistance from someone who happened to reside at the property managers address.

Great location - so convenient
A guest from Foster City, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in April, 2011
This is a reasonable nice condo. We are a family of 4 with two teens who are quite tall, therefore the condo is a bit cramped for us. The kitchen is a bit less than par than other condos we have stayed in - small with limited cookware and aged silverware. We saw some tiny bugs in the kitchen (not many, just a few) but it really deterred me from cooking in it. Anyway, if you have a small family and don't plan to cook, this is still a solid choice due to its convenient location.

Stayed for 8 days in March, 2011
We enjoyed our Stay here very much. IT was clean, in a great location, and very quiet. We were very leery of making reservations on the internet but were very satisfied and even commented that we would love to stay there again. I only have two gripes, one was the sheet for the hid-a-bed was too small and two there was no cookie sheet to cook on. Not the end of the world for us we enjoyed our stay very much and look forward to returning sooner rather than later.Thank you to Shelly, you and your staff were amazing. Checking in on us while the Tsunami warning was in affect, Thank you, that was very sweet and very way over the top. Mahalo~

The general condition of the condo was a disappointment. The carpet was dirty, the coffee table and TV stand were ready for replacement. The condo needed a comfortable chair. The kitchen was minimal, not even a dishtowel.
