The following review(s) were provided by the property manager.

Convenient location 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 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. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, September 26, 2017 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.

My dream vacation 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.

It is possible to ruin a Hawaii vacation if you stay in this unit 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. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Sunday, March 5, 2017 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.

Fun in the Sun! 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 ; Sunday, April 2, 2017 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!

Royal Kuhio - not so Royal 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. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Sunday, August 2, 2015 UPDATE: New Carpet Installed in Royal Kuhio 2403! All Elevators Royal Kuhio Completely Renovated! We're sorry for the inconveniences. Thanks for taking the time to let us know. Sofa beds are notorious for thin uncomfortable mattresses, but we'll see if we can get a better one. We'll make sure to replace kitchen faucet and the elevator remodel work will be done shortly. We can't wait because we don't want our guest to wait. NOTE: Couch replaced 7/13/16.

Visitors from Minnesota 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.<br/><br/> <br/>I have to complement the security person , who was very helpfull when we had questions and handled the elevator problems very well.

Good location, great stay! Our group of four enjoyed our stay at the Royal Kuhio in room 2403. The apartment was well furnished with everything we needed, including some beach equipment. The view wasn't of the beach but it was still stunning. We didn't use the pool as it looked very small and the beach was only an 8 minute walk away.

Great stay in Honolulu We stayed for 3 nights. The unit was very clean which is our main concern. It was much roomier than a hotel room, so great value.

Great location...but little else!! This was situated right in the heart of Honolulu with bus accessibility at the front door. Beyond that, room was "adequate" at best. Very sparse, boring and dated unit (2403)not to mention how noisy it was even though we were on the canal side. Did have a nice view of the mountains from the lanai. Don't think I would stay here again.

good location but run-down place The reservation process,the contact to "Alii Beach Rentals"and the check in/out went very smoothly. The apartment building is located in the middle of everything and you do have free parking and free WiFi, which is good! 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! Well,we should have believed the rather negative reviews we read before...

An enjoyable stay but few hiccups. 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.

Royal Kuhio 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. <br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>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.

Review of 2403 Royal Kuhio 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!<br/>Mrs Maclean

Waikiki in November is Great to leave the cold behind in Canada 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 2403 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. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Sunday, August 2, 2015 UPDATE: New Carpet Installed in Royal Kuhio 2403!

Dissatisfied Customer Just going to list the issues in no particular order. <br/>1.

All the elevators are filthy dirty. Change the carpet out for crying out loud. <br/>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.<br/>4. The pillows had hair all over. Fortunately there were many in the room and we used the best ones. <br/>5. The couch was so old that feathers were poking out and were stabbing me. It too was filthy. Owner should be embarrassed. <br/>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. <br/>7. Wifi worked intermittently, so we hooked up to the room next door. <br/>8. The door was really hard to open. I doubt any small children could open it in an emergency. This is unacceptable..<br/>9. Pictures on wall were crooked and the place needed spackle and paint really bad. <br/><br/>There are probably more things but I think you get the picture. Now the good things.<br/><br/>1.

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 an

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.<br/>

Nice view towards the mountains (no ocean view). Convenient, central location, shopping, dining, bus stop nearby, about 2-3 blocks from the beach. Reasonable rates, includes parking.

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.

Just going to list the issues in no particular order. <br/>1. Getting your key by stopping in a short drive way on a busy street and stooping to getting it from a locked box. <br/>2. Entry looks nice but it smells of urine cakes. <br/>3. All the elevators are filthy dirty. Change the carpet out for crying out loud. <br/>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.<br/>4. The pillows had hair all over. Fortunately there were many in the room and we used the best ones. <br/>5. The couch was so old that feathers were poking out and were stabbing me. It too was filthy. Owner should be embarrassed. <br/>6. All the outlets were so old we could not plug anything in. They seemed rusted.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. <br/>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.<br/>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~

Comfortable apartment. Fantastic kitchen, with new, full-sized appliances. A/C works really well. A great price which includes parking and wireless internet access. I would definitely stay here again. The people at Ali'i Beach Rentals are awesome to work with. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
