Royal Kuhio 25th floor The location is perfect. The condo is convenient for two. The beds were very good and the place was as clean as it can be, but the place needs to be "updated". The door lock gave up on us the before departure, and the very nice maintenance guy was there within a half hour as promised.<br/>The laundry is very convenient and OK, although they should have an exchange machine, the management in house doesn't exchange quarters for Ali'j guests, so one has to get them from the bank across the street or a store. Overall our week there was very good. We liked the parking and on site security especially. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Wednesday, October 17, 2018 We thank you for this review and for staying with us at the Royal Kuhio! Besides a full renovation, we have done all the owner is willing to do which includes new carpet, paint, sofa, and some decor. We also added new vinyl flooring in the kitchen and bath. The condo is clean, and the location is central for Waikiki living.

Royal Kuhio #2540 (Mountain View) In general the condo was quite acceptable. It was clean and centrally located and the dedicated parking space was a bonus. The kitchen could be updated but this was not a big factor for us as we only ate breakfast in the condo. There are three elevators but one was not in service which resulted in long waits at the busy times. We once waited more than 10 minutes as we had to pass on some full ones. All the accessories that was supposed to be in the condo was available. The telephone did not work but this wasn't a problem as we used our cell phones. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Friday, July 13, 2018 The building has had issues with elevators recently and they are working their best to get it handled. We have Hawaiian Tel scheduled to come out on 7/23 to look at phone. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a great review, we appreciate it!!

Great stay at Royal Kuhio City We had stayed at Royal Kuhio City in Honolulu for 7 nights. The room was neat and tidy and we had a great stay. During the stay, a harricane was approaching and wind was strong. The room was on 25th floor, so the wind noise from the gap under the entrance door was loud. But we could fill it by a plastic sheet.

Super vacation It was our first time in Hawaï and we really loved it. The condo is very well located. You can easily walk to the beach and there is plenty of restaurant nearby. We travelled with our son and he enjoy the swimming pool. The parking is great because we choose to rent a car to explore the rest of the island.

Loved this condo This condo was perfect for 3 people, but would be cramped for more than that. It is listed as a 1 bedroom, but it is really a studio. It has an accordion door that can close off the bedroom but there is no air conditioner in the bedroom so it will get really hot if you do. This condo is older, not updated, but everything works, was in good repair and was clean. It has a full kitchen with a dishwasher and everything you need to fix meals. We loved all the amenities and the location is walkable to everything in Waikiki. We only rented a car for a few days to do things outside Waikiki. The parking garage was free, which you don’t find at other places in Waikiki. Ali’i Beach Rental’s was easy to work with and very helpful. They have many other places and we would use them again. There is a great little take out pizza window on the NW corner of Kuhio and Royal Hawaiian and we loved Surf and Turf Tacos. Be sure to go to the flea market in the alley called Dukes Lane, by Dukes marketplace. Souvenirs cost much less there than in the shops. But are even cheaper at the flea market at Aloha stadium

Great holiday I knew pretty much what I was getting when I rented the Royal Kuhio condo. I had rented there before, because of convience. It's close to everything you need. You can see and do things without a car though I do rent one.I like to pack a lunch and drive to different beaches, the challenge of different hikes. When I discovered the beach chairs were worn and broken and there was no cooler got whiney and complained to Ali'i. I was told it's not there responsibility to supply those items. OK I told myself to suck it up, make do. Next day two new beach chairs and a cooler was delivered to my door. That's above customer service. Thank you. The condo itself I rented because it was a reasonable cost. It's old but clean. If you want shiney and new you'll pay more. Either way use Ali'i they are an excellent management company and do care that you have the best stay on Oahu. Mahalo Ali'i, I'll be back. Lil

Old out dated room needing urgent upgrade Room was very dusty and smelled mouldy. On arrival we had trouble trying work out how to turn water on. Also the telephone in room didn't work so we had no way of calling company to show how to work the taps. <br/>Got sick from staying in the dirty room on 24tb floor so spent most of time in our friends booked room on 25th floor which was so much better. <br/>Was so disappointed with our room and unavailability of Alii beach rentals on weekends when our key pass stopped working.<br/>Had to rely on friends room key pass otherwise we would have been stuck in hotel for the whole weekend. <br/>Pretty sure we were meant to get 2 copies of keys but we never did. <br/>Very disappointing service and room which is also very deceiving from pics shown. Now I realise why so few photos of the room are shown. It's to hide all the out dated and dirty decor Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Saturday, March 10, 2018 We just re-did the laminate floors in the condo and added some new artwork. The phone is up and running, and we can always be reached vie phone or email. The building was out of fobs so we could not replace during your stay, but glad to hear you managed.

Honolulu Vacation @ Royal Kuhio 2504 GOOD: The property location is the best attribute for the budget-conscious traveller. Free parking and Wi-Fi are the additional plus points for this condo unit.<br/><br/>BAD: The property we stayed in (Suite 2504) is very dated and smaller than advertised. I believe it was advertised as 550 sq. ft., excluding the lanai, and it is no more than 400 sq. ft. inside - we measured as we are particular about accuracy and honesty when it comes to space/room size. The pictures are definitely photo-shopped and do not provide an accurate view of the place. The furniture needs to be replaced (one cabinet drawer was broken and the rest are hard to open; pull out sofa bed is old and hard to open and close)and the entire unit's decor just needs to be brought up to 21st century standards. I would not recommend it for more than 2 adults, as space is tight with an extra adult and accompanying luggage.<br/><br/>OVERALL: We understand that every unit is unique; however, #2504 @ Royal Kuhio needs work, but is in a building that is in an ideal location. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, December 29, 2015 Yes there are aspects of this condo that are a bit dated. With that being said... if you're looking for a well priced, clean condo, near the ocean, great views, managed by a professional company this is the place for you! ALOHA!!

Excellent Location! Had a lovely 4 days in Waikiki. Everything went smoothly. The best thing about the Royao Kuhio is it's wonderful location right in the heart of Waikiki. The high floor offered grand mountain views. The room was set up like a junior suite where the two beds [queen/single] could be separated from the living area with a sliding door. The property is old but maintained well. Only hiccup is the A/C: one tiny wall unit tucked in the far corner from the beds that is insufficient for those who like to sleep in a cool room when the weather is hot. Thankful for those cool evening breezes. Otherwise it was a good stay and would return. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Thursday, July 21, 2016 We hate hiccups! Other than the a/c placement, sounds like a great trip!!

Convenient location for a decent price! Royal Kuhio is in a good location just a few blocks away from the beach. Many shops and restaurants nearby, you don't even need to rent a car. The condo was just the right size for 2 people. It was hard to get the condo at a comfortable temperature in the evening with the AC on the other size of the room. There wasn't good airflow throughout the unit. Overall we were happy with the unit, location, and price. I would stay here again. It would be nice if a fan was provided next time.

Condo Rental Condo was clean and had the basic amenities. The air conditioner was facing the dresser rather than the open room, so the room stayed warm but the dresser was cool. Would suggest leaving instructions on how to work the TV, there are 4 remotes, think the previous renters couldn't figure it out, but we did. Suggest letting people know they might have to empty the air conditioner water tub or you'll have a mini pool on the balcony. Not sure the purpose of the security guards, they're not friendly or helpful. People come in and out of the secured doors with no questions asked.

Royal Kuhio city 1BD on the 25th floor. We were not sure what to expect as this was our first rental in Waikiki. A previous renter before us wrote that two lights needed repairing and had called maintenance. They were still in need of repair when we arrived but did not bother to call on repairs. The Royal Kuhio is just about as central as you can get with bus stops right out front. Easy walking distance to shops, beaches and restaurants. The room was a little smaller than we had invisiged but was more than adequate for the two of us. Views out over the city and suberbs were beautiful and spectacular at night. Arrangements for our entry and departure were simple. We would like to thank all the staff at Alli beach rentals for there patience and professionalism throughout the booking process. We had recommended Alli beach rentals to friends who also had a wonderful experience at Royal Kuhio

Royal Kuhio 2504 The Royal Kuhio is well located in central Waikiki with easy access to popular eateries and activities either by walking or Bus. We stayed in Condo 2504 which was clean and tidy on arrival. As stated by others this Condo is very compact and for 3 Adults it was adequate. There are views of the canal and up to the hills which gives a different perspective to the beach views. The Condo itself could be enhanced with an update to the kitchen cabinets and vanity which are starting to show their age. There were some plumbing issues with the vanity which would regurgitate at certain times which was more unsightly than an inconvenience. (reported to Alii) As the Condo was originally installed with louvre windows street noise can be heard which you get used to quickly. The property has onsite Security with locked door access which gives you a sense of safety.<br/>Overall an adequate Condo which was well positioned and could benefit with a few updates. I would recommend this Condo as it was presented in a clean and tidy manner with no significant issues.

Perfect Location! The building and condo its self were very nice. The central location was perfect for walking to various activities and the beaches. Bus stop right in front of the building was great. When we booked excursions around the island that required us going on private transportation the pickup and drop off point was only 1/2 a block away. There is free parking onsite if you do rent a car. The condo is the perfect size for 2 people although it could sleep 5. Loved having the full kitchen. For a better stay I would recommend a few things: utensils for using the BBQ (nothing to flip those burgers with!), dish cloths for washing and drying if you chose not to use the dishwasher and for wiping counter tops and the table and a flipper for kitchen use. They had one sponge and one towel for drying dishes. We stayed for 16 days so a few cleaning cloths would of been great for the bathroom area also. The condo was very clean except the bathroom ceiling fan was very dusty. The bathroom sink did back up over the counter. We called maintenance regarding it and they were very prompt about looking after the problem. No issues afterwards with the sink. These were all minor things and we would definitely stay here again. No issues with the security (someone on duty all the time),no long waits for the elevators and we enjoyed the pool area. Great place for a couple to stay while in Waikiki!

Unit 2504 in Royal Kuhio; a Comparative Review Not one of RK's better units. Here's the good, the bad, and the ugly:<br/><br/>The Good: The view of the mountains is beautiful! The lanai is the best aspect of this unit, so plan on spending much of your time there. Also, the unit is high up enough in the complex to evade the sounds of the crazy Oli Oli bus ringers. RESEARCH THEM if you value your sleep on vacation. One more advantage is the location. 2 mins to the riverwalk and 10 mins to the beach by foot.<br/><br/>The Bad: This unit isn't well equipped as compared to the other RK units. Other units we've stayed in came with sharpened knives (this one did not), coffee filters for the coffee maker (this one did not), a rice maker with a lid that matches (you get the point), a plug for the drain in the bath (this one didn't even have a protective grate). Other RK units also came equipped with beach materials such as parasols, snorkels, etc. We understand those were left behind by previous guests, but this unit only had beach towels.<br/><br/>The Ugly: The carpet is downright filthy. While all other RK units come equipped with a vacuum cleaner, this one did not. Bring slippers and/or check with the front desk to see about borrowing a RK vacuum.<br/><br/>Overall, it's not a terrible unit, but it's below average as compared to some of the other RK units. Plan early and rent something around the 30th floor. Those are well maintained. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, June 13, 2017 A great review for all to read. Waikiki is a very very vibrant city, there are other places on Oahu that can be much more peaceful. The carpet is about 2 years old, and we have washed it since this review, and it is on a regular cleaning cycle. The vacuum has been replaced. Thank you for the excellent feedback.

Good thing we were in Hawaii! Smelled stuffy when we first walked in, bathroom curtain smelled of mildew, carpet in nook area was ripped and coming up, dishwasher leaked all over the floor, pull cord for fan broke...maintenance tried to fix carpet. Didn't do a good job, was still coming up. "Good thing we were in Hawaii". We didn't let it ruin our stay...if all things were fixed prior to us arriving, I definitely would recommend this place, I'm sure the other properties were nice, we just happen to get one that was Under-maintained. My nieces stayed in the same place but a two bedroom and there only problem was the plug was biggie... Fix the issues and we'll be back!!!

suited our needs Susie was great! She promptly answer any questions that I had. The property was essentially clean except for little bugs running on the kitchen table (I most closely associated them with fruitflies minus wings). Our one complaint was that the sign in info stated that there would be 4 rolls of toilet paper and that we supply any extra required however there was only the one roll that was in the bathroom. We found that the hide-a-bed was uncomfortable/poor mattress (as most people might assume) Overall we were very pleased with the location and the condo suited our needs perfectly. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Monday, May 12, 2014 Thank you for your feedback and we have spoken to the cleaners about resupplying the inventory in the unit after every cleaning. We will talk to the owner about a new mattress for the sofa as well.

Royal Kuhio - 2504 - August, 2014 We had a wonderful time and stay at Royal Kuhio even with the few minor problems we had with our room. Funky smell when we first arrived; twin bed mattress felt like you were sleeping on concrete (but that was quickly resolved by Cloe, who brought us a brand new mattress pad); having to empty the AC water tray at least once a day; sticky track doors in bathroom area;strained bathtub inside and out; broken beach umbrella and the frayed carpet in the kitchen area which exposed the saddle, and not very barefoot friendly, ouch!. Being that said, I would stay at the Royal Kuhio again, as well as recommend it to my family and friends. I want to especially thank, Cloe forhelping us on our last day at Royal Kuhio.

A view of the canal is what you will get The online process was helpful and the app gave us all the details for check in and out. The parking and key was a bit complicated however I am sure it helps with security. There were a few cleanliness issues in our room including: our room had a large stain on carpet and the curtains were not working properly - and the dishwasher made a very loud noise while running which may have been a repair issue. The hallways had an odor from all the cooking. Overall the entire facility was not welcoming - it was drab and a bit depressing. The location was close to many things in Waikiki which was nice. I would not recommend this property to others.

Decent - okay for the price, but it ain't Trump Hotel The building itself is just okay. Funny smell in the lobby area - sort of bathroomy-ish. Fantastic location - right in the middle of Waikiki. Close to everything. The building is nice enough, but is aged and in need of a remodel. The room needs a remodel also. And a pesticide treatment - saw a roach. Generally clean though. The A/C is the window type (not central), and made some noise. There's a great breeze thru the unit if you open the sliding door to the balcony and the front door. Beds were fine. TV system was a bit confusing - had to call to get directions. Maybe this should be written down on a placard and placed there. Great recreation deck on the 7th floor. Small pool, pool and Ping-Pong tables (need to restock the Ping-Pong balls though - they were out). Or bring your own. Shuffle board and BBQ's, and nice shady area to just cruise. Overall middle-of-the-road, decent enough place for the money.

Needs updating The property is in a great location but the rental itself can use some work. The furniture was outdated and there appeared to have no updates. The beds were lumpy, the rental smelt musty, the sliding glass door doesn't close nor lock. The air condition leaves a pool of water at the door entrance. The front door sticks and needs to be yanked shut when leaving. The elevator was broke 50% of the time and always a long wait for the elevator. The elevator was musty and humid with no air flow. The dishes in the rental were dirty upon arrival and the blow dryer did not work. The closet closes to the bathroom did not slide close. The pRking was conveniently located near the elevator but the elevator to the parking garage was often out of order. The building and unit could use some refreshing for more appeal. The price was fair for the duration of the stay minus the inconvenience.

The building is clean and has a security 24/7.The room was a very good size for the 3 of us. It wasn't as clean as a hotel room would be (few stains on the carpet and the kitchen is on the older side, but the beds were comfortable and there was plenty of towels and beach towels for us to use. You could hear some noise from the street but that is expected when staying in Waikiki, as the city is generally very busy. We did not use the amenities area because it was pretty run down and not appealing. We were there for the beach anyways so we didn't care for the pools.Overall, great experience.We had no issues during our stay, and would probably stay there again.

No garburator was installed under the kitchen sink. The linoleum was stained and should have been replaced with the carpets. I would recommend that whole suite have ceramic tile for flooring.

Not one of RK's better units. Here's the good, the bad, and the ugly:<br/><br/>The Good: The view of the mountains is beautiful! The lanai is the best aspect of this unit, so plan on spending much of your time there. Also, the unit is high up enough in the complex to evade the sounds of the crazy Oli Oli bus ringers. RESEARCH THEM if you value your sleep on vacation. One more advantage is the location. 2 mins to the riverwalk and 10 mins to the beach by foot.<br/><br/>The Bad: This unit isn't well equipped as compared to the other RK units. Other units we've stayed in came with sharpened knives (this one did not), coffee filters for the coffee maker (this one did not), a rice maker with a lid that matches (you get the point), a plug for the drain in the bath (this one didn't even have a protective grate). Other RK units also came equipped with beach materials such as parasols, snorkels, etc. We understand those were left behind by previous guests, but this unit only had beach towels.<br/><br/>The Ugly:

There is free parking onsite if you do rent a car. The condo is the perfect size for 2 people although it could sleep 5. Loved having the full kitchen. For a better stay I would recommend a few things: utensils for using the BBQ (nothing to flip those burgers with!), dish cloths for washing and drying if you chose not to use the dishwasher and for wiping counter tops and the table and a flipper for kitchen use.

The Royal Kuhio is well located in central Waikiki with easy access to popular eateries and activities either by walking or Bus. We stayed in Condo 2504 which was clean and tidy on arrival. As stated by others this Condo is very compact and for 3 Adults it was adequate. There are views of the canal and up to the hills which gives a different perspective to the beach views. The Condo itself could be enhanced with an update to the kitchen cabinets and vanity which are starting to show their age. There were some plumbing issues with the vanity which would regurgitate at certain times which was more unsightly than an inconvenience. (reported to Alii) As the Condo was originally installed with louvre windows street noise can be heard which you get used to quickly.

We were not sure what to expect as this was our first rental in Waikiki. A previous renter before us wrote that two lights needed repairing and had called maintenance. They were still in need of repair when we arrived but did not bother to call on repairs. The Royal Kuhio is just about as central as you can get with bus stops right out front. Easy walking distance to shops, beaches and restaurants. The room was a little smaller than we had invisiged but was more than adequate for the two of us. Views out over the city and suberbs were beautiful and spectacular at night. Arrangements for our entry and departure were simple. We would like to thank all the staff at Alli beach rentals for there patience and professionalism throughout the booking process. We had recommended Alli beach rentals to friends who also had a wonderful experience at Royal Kuhio

Had a lovely 4 days in Waikiki. Everything went smoothly. The best thing about the Royao Kuhio is it's wonderful location right in the heart of Waikiki. The high floor offered grand mountain views. The room was set up like a junior suite where the two beds [queen/single] could be separated from the living area with a sliding door. The property is old but maintained well. Only hiccup is the A/C: one tiny wall unit tucked in the far corner from the beds that is insufficient for those who like to sleep in a cool room when the weather is hot. Thankful for those cool evening breezes. Otherwise it was a good stay and would return.

Condo was clean and had the basic amenities. The air conditioner was facing the dresser rather than the open room, so the room stayed warm but the dresser was cool. Would suggest leaving instructions on how to work the TV, there are 4 remotes, think the previous renters couldn't figure it out, but we did. Suggest letting people know they might have to empty the air conditioner water tub or you'll have a mini pool on the balcony. Not sure the purpose of the security guards, they're not friendly or helpful. People come in and out of the secured doors with no questions asked.

GOOD: The property location is the best attribute for the budget-conscious traveller. Free parking and Wi-Fi are the additional plus points for this condo unit.<br/><br/>BAD: The property we stayed in (Suite 2504) is very dated and smaller than advertised. I believe it was advertised as 550 sq. ft., excluding the lanai, and it is no more than 400 sq. ft. inside - we measured as we are particular about accuracy and honesty when it comes to space/room size. The pictures are definitely photo-shopped and do not provide an accurate view of the place. The furniture needs to be replaced (one cabinet drawer was broken and the rest are hard to open; pull out sofa bed is old and hard to open and close)and the entire unit's decor just needs to be brought up to 21st century standards. I would not recommend it for more than 2 adults, as space is tight with an extra adult and accompanying luggage.<br/><br/>OVERALL: We understand that every unit is unique; however, #2504 @ Royal Kuhio needs work, but is in a building t

Need another plug in in the kitchen or an extension cord like we used to be able to plug the toaster, coffee pot and microwave all in. Needs painted to freshen it up. Also baseboard in the vanity area has come loose. We taped it with masking tape. One of the patio chairs was broken when we arrived. Would be nice to have several kitchen towels and dish rags. We appreciated the beach towels to use and the plentiful towel supply. Need to have a tv channel guide left in the room for each resident to use. We love Hawaii and we found this condo to be centrally located with a great pool deck. Thank you for our stay.

First night the toilet clogged and no plunger was provided/could not get one from the condo. Tank plumbing was corroded and the entire fixture needed replacing. Manager came the next morning to unclog and left a plunger. Insisted it be replaced ASAP. Frustrating that security was not given any phone numbers from condo mgmt for night emergencies. No garburator was installed under the kitchen sink. The linoleum was stained and should have been replaced with the carpets. I would recommend that whole suite have ceramic tile for flooring. The tub fixtures and tile need replacing. Light switch panels were cracked. Switches and plug ins should be replaced.<br/>Vacuum attachments did not fit the hose. Stove, fridge, and microwave were new and clean. Lots of extra bedding and towels and beds were clean. Recommend new cabinets. Location was great and safe at night with large crowds of shoppers. Easy to get to the beach and next to transit. Would recommend the building and book with Alii Rentals but sele

We were looking to see Hawaii at a reasonable price. We found it at Royal Kuhio. Not far from the beach, clean, good view of the canal and the mountain, free parking : SUPER Games for the kids at 7th floor have to be refurbished to be as attractive as<br/> they look on the web site though.

- phone didn't work well, would cut in and out - oven worked, but no pans or oven mitts to use - air conditioner was in odd location, it was nice and cool in the living room, but cool air didn't reach the bed too well - Great location walking distance<br/> to many stores restaurants, 5 minutes to beach, bus stop right in front of building, nice view of mountain side

The elevators were dirty and gave the place a crummy feeling. The unit was old and worn out. The cockroaches were irritating.The unit was missrepresented; it was a studio, not a one bedroom. But the people at Alii Beach Rentals were very helpful every time i contacted them.

We had followup phone calls to make sure everything was ok. The location was only a few blocks from the beach. We would definitely stay again.

This condo definitely needs upgrading. The walls were marked, chipped, dirty appearing. The bathroom fixtures were rusty. The closet sliding door came off the track a few times. The bedding was well worn. The twin bed was really hard.

Overall the condo was OK, but everything inside was outdated. Closet doors were off the hooks and didn't move, so we had to fix them. The same was with bath tub / shower doors. We didn't find the items that we ordered and prepaid for our stay, such as beach umbrella and chairs, so we had to call manager, wait for call back (next day) and wait again a day more for delivery.<br/>The kitchen was so tiny that there was impossible to plug in microwave, toaster and coffee maker together, so we had to move them around. The biggest disappointment was finding cockroaches in the kitchen when dark. Please call insect control ASAP. I tried to call manager several times during the stay, and got a call back only once.

Our bed sheets were not cleaned and the unit was rented as a 1 bedroom, it was a studio unit with a shutter divider (not a 1 bedroom).

Our only complaints would be the windows were hard to open/close and the electrical outlets were really tricky to use. Everything was great and the price was excellent compared to other places in the Waikiki area.

It was clean. Facilities were good. The only negative was that one of the two windows couldn't be closed as the mechanism was broken, which made sleeping difficult on occasion with traffic noise reverberating between the buildings- seems to be a lot of Harley's in Waikiki
