      Yes its noisy but it is Downtown Waikiki. VERY near the beach and I doubt you would find anything this cheap. Its clean and serviceable. Internet is fast and everything works. It won't win any style awards but it does the job and the desk staff are friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

      Canadians Love to Save Money!


      I spent the New Year's here with my sister-in-law and I would return in a second! For $75 US a night, we got a spotless room/bathroom with kitchenette that had two double beds. I didn't want to waste my hard-earned money on motel rooms but I did want clean rooms which I received. The "downside" is having to return any dirty towels to the front desk in order to receive clean ones, having no maid service unless you stay there at least 6 consecutive days, and bringing your trash down to the waste bins. Since that kind of thing doesn't bother me in the least, I was able to save money which I would rather use on visiting the sites, shows, and some nice dinners out. Odie and Rose are both lovely people to talk with; they answered all my questions and made me feel like they were family. I was able to do all my laundry there and parked my car across the street since they only have 5 available parking sites. I would recommend those sleep eyewear thingies since the curtain does not keep out the early morning sun. I will return here and will try the small or smallest room next time [around 40-50 US dollars.]

      It's worth to stay @ Waikiki Prince Hotel!!


      I have stayed in this hotel twice; May 2004 & Feb 2001. I'm sure I will be coming back to this hotel SOON! Here are some reasons why Waikiki Prince is the BEST!!

      1) So close to famous Waikiki & everything!!...Restaurants, groceries, ABC stores (everywhere!), bus stop, Police station, Aloha Marketplace...you name it, it's all around you!

      2) ODIE is one of the nicest people I've met - always helpful!!

      3) ROOM & WASHROOM are CLEAN. The only time it was messy was when I had too many shopping bags all over the room!

      4) Cleaning service is twice a week & changes towels everyday!

      5) Price is worth it as it's accessible to everything, clean & neat room and staff are great!

      If you book a room w/ kitchenette, it saves you a little bit of money as you can spend the rest to extra excursions, dinner or more shopping! If I had such bad experience in this hotel, I wouldn't go back @ all. I've enjoyed my stay there TWICE & am planning to go back there this year w/ my sis:)

      Location, Value, Value


      Cheap, clean, cheap, friendly and cheap. Don't expect much (no shampoo, no hair dryer) except decent sleeps. You may need to hang a bed spread over the curtain to help block street lights. Kitchenette rooms have gas stove, fridge, microwave, sink, dishes, etc. which could save you alot if you are staying for a while. A huge step up from a hostel for reasonable $$$. Two short blocks from beach. Don't expect taxi driver to know where where it is (ours didn't). Most people take TheBus or a shuttle.

      Great value for the dollar


      As part of Alyson and Malcolm's round the world trip, we found the Waikiki Prince Hotel accommodation, as good as any where else in the world for great economic value,comfort, convenience and friendly service.

      Spend the extra money and find something better


      While the management is incredibly nice, the hotel is very shabby (dirty, paint chipping) sad elevator and the rooms remind me of state college dorm rooms. There's no phones in the rooms. The room was supposed to be non-smoking but smelled bad of it. If you are even slightly upscale minded, I would spend the extra money to go on priceline and bid for a 3 or 4 star hotel. If you stay in hostels on a super cheap budget, then this might be okay.

      What a great bargain


      Based on reviews on tripadvisor, I booked this hotel for my short stay near Waikiki beach and i did not regret one moment at all. The pluses are many: VERY CLEAN rooms with basic stuff including tv and microwave, central location( two blocks from the waikiki beach) and a view of the ocean from the 6th floor, a very informative and friendly manager and best of all $40 for the smallest rooms, it is a steal. In fact, my wife and I had breakfast from the balcony with a view. The flip side, I would consider it minor, is the small rooms ( we stayed in the smallest room, but they have bigger rooms too) but hey for $40/night in waikki right next to the Hyatt I would go for it.

      Bargain rates!


      this hotel is about a block away from the beach. i got a small room for 40 bucks a night. it was clean and comfortable with a little porch. the room isn't fancy but it is fuctional. it has a great location and friendly staff. highly recomended for the budget conscious traveler.

      Great Hotel


      Wonderful stay. A long walk to Waikiki, but quiet. Nice staff. A bit expensive. Very clean and nice furnishings. Large rooms.

      Great Deal in Waikiki!!


      An Outstanding Deal!!! For only around $50 per night you can have a hotel room right in the middle of Waikiki. While some might be worried about staying in a cheaper hotel, I can assure you that the Waikiki prince has very clean and well kept rooms. The manager is very reasonable and helpful. If you're just looking for a place to stay while enjoying your vacation on Oahu, the Waikiki Prince is a great bargain. I stayed in the smallest room availiable and I was satisfied.

      Im sure that you will be as well.

      Great Deal in Waikiki!


      As a visitor to the Hawaiian Islands 18 times I am highly qualified to know whats a good deal from Kauai to Molokai to the Big Island.There is NO better place to stay for the price,location and the EXCELLENT service than the Waikiki Prince Hotel on Prince Edward Street in Honolulu and Waikiki!It's a smaller hotel and the rooms are'nt huge but it's extremely clean and comfortable and it's only a block or 2 from Kuhio beach by the Hyatt Regency and the Duke Kahanamoku statue by the police station.Ode,the manager is one of the nicest people and sincere people on the planet and gives true meaning to the word Aloha!Rooms are usually between $45 and $80 per night and if you stay a week the seventh night is usually free!The personable manager,location and price make this my personal favorite place to stay in the entire islands and I've been to them ALL!Delan

I caught in some waves and generally bummed around while Andrew sat on the beach and took some pictures. What a great day, time for a shower and some Nivea action. Showering after a day sun baking or at the beach feels lovely, clean and refreshing. Stuff wearing undies, that's over rated at this time. My shorts I ...

      Last night we really fancied pasta and walked all over to find an Italian. We didn't find one but we did find The Cheesecake Factory - love that place but the waiting time was 50 minutes - no thank you. We found a restaurant opposite called Jimmy Buffet and thinking it was a buffet we thought we'd find some Italian food. However, when we got up to the restaurant we soon learned it was not a buffet but perhaps someone's last name. It was a Mexican restaurant and looked a bit like ...

      This morning we all headed to Ala Moana Shopping Centre.
      Which is a "must do" when here in Honolulu. I can't say I was

      We arrived at the entrance to the site at 6.45, about 15 minutes before it opened, but there was already about a hundred people ahead of us. It was also starting to warm up. Once inside the memorial we had an hour or so of free time which I spent wandering around more or less aimlessly. Saw the Bowfin - a WWII submarine - and a little miniature Japanese sub nearby which I assume was similar to the ones used in ...
