    Historical Traveler Reviews Breakers Hotel Honolulu

    The Breakers is Wonderful!!!!

    from

    We enjoyed our stay at the Breakers sooo much! The staff is lovely and the hotel has such a wonderful Hawaiian feel. We felt really at home and loved the pool and the morning coffee. We felt very safe here and there was very little traffic on the street in front of the hotel. Just a short walk to the beach and all the sights and sounds of Waikiki. And very close to the Bus, which will take you all around the island of Oahu for less than $5.00! I'm going to make another reservation right now!

    Old Hawaii - Very Family Friendly

    from

    Our family has stayed here twice, largely because my aunt has been coming here for years. It is so easy for a family; small kitchens in rooms, front room has 2 twin beds, bedroom in back is private with a queen bed. Leave you door open and hang by the pool. Front staff is great, and the little bar in back is nice. Can use their barbecue at night.

    It is a good location, about 1 block to the beach, near the large Hilton resort. Can even walk to the large mall from here. There is usually a good crowd at this hotel, have witnessed a few weddings here. We have met many friends. There is a store across the street with everything you need and many restaurants nearby.

    It is low key and friendly and clean, just old! There is an annoying car rental lot next door who pulls there chain off very noisily at an ungodly hour.

    We enjoy the other ambiences so much, we ignore the rest. (No elevators to wait in, no crowded pool, easy to get everywhere). It is peaceful at this place, but you can then walk out to the medlam of Waikiki (fireworks at Hilton on Friday night, parades on main drag, high-end shopping, renting surf boards at the beach, hanging out at the high-rent hotels on the beach for drinks). They have really cleaned up the beach area on Waikiki. I used to love the other islands, but have enjoyed this much more BECAUSE YOU DON'T NEED A CAR!! TAKE A TAXI WHERE YOU WANT TO GO!!! GO FOR LONG WALKS AT NIGHT!! There is also a washer and dryer on site!

    Still Hawaiin and friendly

    from

    I stayed at the Breakers Hotel for two nights in January. I was on my way back from New Zealand and just looking for a comfortable place to stay within a short distance to the beach. The accommodations were satisfactory but the best part was the feeling of old Hawaii and the nice people at the front desk. It is only two blocks to the beach and close to everything. Because of my short stay I did not want to rent a car and this was perfect. I was able to get a late checkout on the day of departure with no extra fees. My flight wasn't until late that night so this was really a bonus. Big hotels are okay but you rarely get the friendly service that I experienced at this one.

    Last minute booking

    from

    Due to some very bad weather in Portland, we were unable to get home from the big island a week after New Years. At the last minute, we had to scramble to find anything on Waikiki with a reasonable cost for a family of five. The Breakers is exactly what they advertise, a bit of old Hawaii. We loved it, similar to the old Halekalani before the high-rise.

    Correct that the TV looks like an antique, no remote but they have cable, A/C not too intrusive, open the shutters and you have screens rather than glass. Perfect. Also, the little restaurant by the pool has the best burgers in the islands. Don't stay here if you wnt the big hotel experience, but it is a 2-minute walk from the beach, Kalakaua Ave. Heart of Waikiki. This is the place if we go back to the islands.

    What a pleasant experience

    from

    After many trips to Honolulu and staying at the bigger hotels my experience staying at this wonderfully comfortable hotel was first class. The staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for you, the rooms were large and clean, and the other guests made you feel welcome.

    It was like visiting an old friend and the location to the beach and shopping was great. I've been home for 2 days and have already booked my next stay there next year!

    Sensational vacation home & staff are fabulous

    from

    My family & I, in addition to many friends we've convinced to also appreciate The Breakers, have been staying annually at this wonderful vacation spot for many years.The Breakers is a genuine oasis in the heart of Waikiki and this hotel is truly run in a very professional manner with the emphasis placed on their staff to ensure that all guests relax and enjoy this 'home away from home' - especially after a hard day playing golf or indulging in great shopping bargain hunting for men and woman alike!The brilliant Aloha spirit thrives in your wonderful State of Hawaii.Mahalo, Therese Lee

    Not what we expected. . . .

    from

    After reading a number of reviews, we booked a "AAA Rate Std King" room through ... We're experienced Hawaii vacationers, but had not stayed in Waikiki. The first part of this trip was on the Big Island at King Kamahameha and a live-aboard dive boat - both great experiences.We arrived at the Breakers only to find that there was (1) no where to park our rental car and no options offered by the hotel, (2) no king size bed available and "we didn't guarantee that, you made your reservation through a booking service", (3) no way to use the air conditioner AND let light into the room at the same time (when you open the shutters, there is no glass on the windows). Over the next several nights, the air conditioner constantly rattled, we found the queen bed caused my wife and I to "roll to the middle", the TV was an antique and quality was awful, and the Waikiki area reminded us of Manhattan with a beach. I guess this could be charming to some. . . . If you decide to book with the Breakers, do it directly and BUYER BEWARE!

    Nothing special

    from

    Our travel agent recommended this place and we have always trusted her judgement, but when we showed up to check in we were dissappointed. We had been advised we would have a poolside room, but when we arrived they only had second floor rooms overlooking a car rental lot. Since it was almost midnight and that was the only room left, we were stuck. The room was noisy and we were woken up early each morning by the local garbage truck, a baby crying, people talking by the registration desk, etc.

    The hotel has some good points though. The staff is friendly and the extras like beach mats and towels were appreciated. The morning coffee was a nice, if you don't take cream or like coffee mate.

    The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable, but too small. Our room only had a double and a single bed, which could not be pushed together and were about long enough for dwarfs to sleep in.

    If you are looking for cheaper, clean accomodation in Waikiki and don't plan to spend a lot of time at your hotel, this may be for you, but if you want to hang out at a nice hotel book somewhere else.

    Old-time Waikiki

    from

    Nice rooms, good sized, with kitchenette. Japanese-style sliding screens add a nice touch and save space. Very friendly staff. Limited free parking. Free coffee in the morning. The very popular Italian restaurant across the street will call when your table is ready.

    One complaint - The pool is not heated and was usually cold.

    Charming open courtyard around the pool, most of the families we met that were staying there had been coming for years. Great little burger bar at lunch time. Steps from the beach on Waikiki's most charming side street. It felt like nothing had changed in 40 years.

    ... classy feel about them and the hotels were all a lovely sand colour and didn't interfere with the stunning view of the Diamond Head crater or the long stretch of Waikiki beach.

    There was no mistaking we were in Hawaii, surf shops and surf schools dominated the streets and beach, there was colour everywhere including the bird life, and even the emergency vehicles ...

    re-orientated our brains to driving on the wrong side of the road (or as they
    like to think, the right side of the road). The car hire man had pointed out
    places to see whales, which we thought might occur in a blue moon, but what do
    you know, there were heaps of them! We were just driving along looking out then
    boom, there they were. We pulled over and whale watched for the next ...
