Adequate rental Alii staff very good. Quick to respond to AC problem. Good things about rental: central location, lots of activities walkable, bus at door a plus. Free parking also great. Unit was okay for a week's stay. Nice view. Not so good: Street and bar noise constant from 6 a.m.-midnight. Unit has been painted recently (paint cans still in entry closet) but furniture worn. Window cranks on patio and in bedroom broken. Tub doesn't hold bath water. Nothing that makes unit unlivable, but detracts from ambience. Royal Kuhio has very nice lobby but halls are poorly maintained. Need cleaning (bugs on hall carpet when we arrived were still there when we left a week later). Overall grade C-.

Clean and comfortable stay Our stay at the Royal Kuhio was very pleasant. The property is well located and as described. Free parking was a big plus as most places charge and street parking is metered. The property is dated but clean. We had a problem with one of the keys and an agent responded immediately and exchanges keys.

Royal Kuhio Rm #2008 Pictures are quite accurate of the unit. It is a bit dated though. Seems to be stuck in the 70's. Having said that, it is reflected in the price. We didn't expect a 5 star hotel experience. We just wanted a place to crash at the end of the day. Pro's. Nice views, 1 block from the main street. Newer sofa bed. Newer flat screen TV. Bus stop right in front. 24 hr. security. Parking spot. If you rent a car in Waikiki, this is a tremendous bonus as parking is premium. Pool was always clean ( as clean as a pool can be ) New elevators are fast. Management co. was easy to talk to. I actually screwed up our reservation. We were to check out 10am and our flight back didn't leave until 11:30 pm.That would leave us wandering the streets with our suitcases for 12 hours. I made a call to Rita, and she was able to let us stay an extra half day for half day rate. No Bugs detected the entire time.<br/>Cons. Balcony windows were dirty, which didn't make for a nice view when sun shines thru. Location of building ( on a main st. ) you hear everything. A/C have a hard time keeping unit cool. Overall, I'd book this place again, because of cost savings to a hotel. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Friday, November 20, 2015 A wonderful review, and what we can improve on in the unit, we will. Aloha!

Perfect Spot in Waikiki - Good Value Very good value for money. Had an amazing time in Waikiki. Stunning views from the balcony over Waikiki and of the sea.<br/><br/>Condo was very central to shops and a short walk to the beach. Public transport right outside the door, and the best little tour shop just down the road.<br/><br/>Condo itself was in good condition though a little dated. Full kitchen was brilliant and rooms were spacious. Everything worked well and the only issue we had was with the sink and was fixed the next day while we were out. <br/><br/>Would definitely recommend and definitely stay again.

Honolulu Holiday Royal Kuhio's big plus is free car parking and is central to everything in Waikiki. Shops Clubs Restaurants etc and 10 min walk to the beach. The only complaint we have in 2008 is that the Air Con in the bedroom was excessively noisy and could not leave it on. For drinks and eats try Rivals Sports Bar or Cuckoo Coconuts (wed & sat good band) half a block away from royal kuhio. Do go to the Elvis Show, Friday Night Catamaran Sail to watch the fireworks and a Dinner Cruise, all very good.

So my wife and i Have been staying at some of the properties that Alii Beach Rentals manage. We really love the places it's so much better then staying at a hotel just wish the check out time was a little later.

Mahalo nui loa, Ali`i Beach Rentals Overall, we were pretty satisfied with our recent stay at the Royal Kuhio, Rm 2008. All of the amenities that were highly important for our 30-day stay; like having private parking, wi-fi, a full kitchen with appliances/dishes/utensils, an ironing board/iron, on-site laundry facilities, a swimming pool, work-out area, and lanai were all included in the price. However, these were not the only items that were available for our use which was also a BIG bonus. The location was ideal and close for walking to nearby locale spots or popping onto the highway to get to another desired location. We could actually see the ocean, not just a sliver; and were also able to catch a firework show in the evening. The property management staff, maintenance, and on-site security were all very nice and helpful in assisting with any arising issues or concerns. Since, I was busy working for the majority of the time and this was not our only time visiting the Hawaiian Islands; staying in the lap of luxury or a 5-star establishment was not a top concern on our list. But, if you are looking to stay in a more luxurious setting, this might not be the place for you because there could definitely be an update warranted for this unit. My only other complaint was that I am highly allergic to cigarette smoke and I was under the impression that smoking was prohibited on the property due to the strict criteria and enforcement outlined within the rental agreement; however, this was not the case. Since, many of the units are privately owned and outside the jurisdiction of this property management company; on more than a few instances, I had to shut our sliding glass door leading to the lanai and fresh sea air, close the windows which provided a nice breeze, avoid sitting outside and enjoying the lanai's views, and leave the swimming pool due to other individuals smoking. Further, with exception to the ongoing smoking concerns and needed upgrades; our stay was AWESOME.

Conveniently located Waikiki apartment Alii Beach Rental were very professional and responded right away when we had a problem. The condo is well laid out and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the view from the was easy to walk to the grocery store,the beach, and any number of shops. The tattered draperies detracted from the quality of the apartment and the shower was difficult to turn on. It required strength and my elderly mother was not able to turn it on or off. It was quite noisy which we expected being in the heart of Waikiki and on a main street. We didn't mind the daytime noise but from 1:00 to 4:00 am there is a fair amount of pedestrian noise which seemed to carry up to the apartment. Once we started sleeping with the windows closed and the AC on we were fine. Overall we were happy with the experience.

2015 Holiday Just as I had hoped for great condo good view and 20 floors up noise was not problem. Couple of things need looking at 1 the curtains need replacing all torn and that old you can see thought them makes it very light for the person sleeping in the lounge room. The exhaust fan over the stove is not working makes cooking as we did a lot of, fun with the smoke alarm going off all the time. 3 The lounge room aircon not working as good as the bedroom one think it needs a service, works very hard to cool the room. All that a side we had 3 great weeks here and being a corner condo when the wind is up you can open the windows and get the best breeze thought the place. We will be back soon and I recommend this condo. One last thing the pull out bed is so comfortable loved it. <br/>

Hawaii Vacation I really enjoyed my stay at Royal Kuhio. The only negative part of my stay there was the elevator situation. I guess it was just bad timing that I had gone while they were upgrading the elevators. Sometime only one was working and it took a long time!! Other than that, it was a convenient location, the security guards and maintenance guy was super nice, friendly and helpful. I loved that they had a ping pong table and pool tables. We played while waiting for our laundry. It really felt like home during our stay there! :)

Ok, not awesome This is a nice place if you want to be within walking distance to the beach. It was not what we expected, it is very small, the beds are way to soft for someone with back issues, it is a lot of work to get in and out of. Your view that you from the 20th floor is of the more buildings and tops of buildings, surely not the beach or ocean. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Sunday, August 9, 2015 Thanks for your honest review as it helps our potential guests to get an idea of the size of the unit as well as the view. This condo is as pictured, but it may look a bit bigger in the photos. However it's much much larger than a hotel room and there are ocean views but the building is a ways from the ocean though.

A good unit if not for the dirt. We found the location to be great, very central. It's a noisy area with sirens etc, but we expected that. The front desk staff were mixed - one fellow was very nice while the other was a real grouch. <br/>The unit is a nice size, the appliances are in good order and clean. The view is of the city and you can see a bit of the ocean, so it's very nice to sit on the balcony. Alii Beach Rentals were very professional and helpful (thanks Shelly).<br/>The building is old and a bit worn but well-maintained. <br/>The big problem was the cleanliness of the unit. Upon arrival at midnight, we stayed up for a hour cleaning things. The kitchen cupboards were disgusting - they all had grease/oil stains dripping down them. The unit has a lot of utensils, pots/pans etc. However the utensil drawer smelt awful and the dishes were wet, so we washed everything before using them. <br/>The carpets were full of stains and felt dirty, I wore white socks on them and within a hour the socks were brown on the bottom. We wore our sandals for our entire stay to avoid walking on them. <br/>Besides the dirt we felt the unit was nice and a good deal in comparison to other properties we looked at. However, I feel the amount of dirt may be a deal-breaker for many people.

Conveniently located and budget friendly The condo was conveniently located especially with a bus stop right out front. We had more of an ocean view than I thought we would as well as mountain views as we were in a corner unit. The furniture and kitchen could use some updating but for what we paid and where it was located, it was fine. Very basic, no frills. The 2 closets in the bedroom was a nice surprise. One downfall was not having a place to store my luggage upon checkout as I had several hours to wait before my flight so I felt stuck at the condo until my shuttle picked me up. It would have been nice to know about the luggage storage company in the welcome package.<br/>All in all, I would recommend it if you are on a budget.

Mahalo Only a few minor hiccups with the unit that were noted, but nothing of great concern. I would have rated the overall stay as a 5-star, but gave it a 4 for two reasons: 1- The noise on Kuhio Ave. Traffic has demonically increased over the last year with the introduction of several new tour bus companies. 2- There is a Harley Davidson motorcycle rental business just across the street. If you don't mind that kind of tail-pipe noise beginning at 7:30am, and lasting most of the day, then I am sure it will be fine. We did not spend a lot of time during the day in the unit, but morning coffee and evening drinks were a little too noisy for us. Thanks Shelly and Ali'i for another GREAT holiday. See you in a few months. Happy Holidays.

Nice stay, but nothing special. The booking didn't cause any problems at all. All went smoothly. Arriving and parking a car and also the path between parking area to the condo itself was a bit troubling, but only for the first time. <br/><br/>Condo itself was nice, two separate beds in bedroom, plenty of space, little windows though, but I didn't go to Waikiki to spend my vacation at bedroom anyway. <br/><br/>Overall no problems occured, EXCEPT! The wi-fi wasn't good at all, the connection speed was terrible. But as I contacted to the manager, the problem was solved in one day, as new hotspot router was delivered to the condo, with slightly better speed. Still not good, but not as worst as original. <br/><br/>There was few other quests in the apartement - little ants in the kitchen area. No trouble for me, but if you rent this place, be aware not to leave any food out of the fridge, as these little fellows seemed quite hungry =)<br/><br/>Oh yeah, the toilet knob didn't work that well either. Had to push hard and repeatedly to get the water going.<br/><br/>Overall, that was a good stay, as mention, nothing spectacular inside, but the location is well worth the price! <br/><br/>Mahalo! Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Wednesday, November 21, 2012 Lauri, thanks for your feedback. We were glad to drop off that 4G hotspot and we are having the wireless router (WiFi) replaced this week. We will also make sure to address those small ants and toilet. Thanks again for choosing Ali'i Beach Rentals and it was our pleasure to take care of you. Aloha!

Great place to stay, great view, but that door to the lanai... This location is great overall. The room is clean and feels larger than other rooms in the same complex. You can see significant strips of Waikiki and the Pacific between the buildings, and the fireworks on Friday evening from the lanai are spectacular! Even the bathroom and shower are in good shape which is more than I can say about other showers in the same complex. Getting to the lanai is another issue because the bearing wheel is completely worn down which means you have to drag this very heavy door across a metal track while wincing at the terrible noise it makes. If they could just get that door fixed, this property would be in tip-top shape. Loved my stay, would do it again in a heartbeat!

Royal Kuhio Suite 2008 / April 27/13 - May 1/13 This was our first experience using a vacation property rental company and going through Alii was very easy. All questions asked were answered very quickly and professionally. The online reservation and payment system was very convenient. <br/>We were looking for affordability and convenience for our few days in Waikiki and this property delivered. It was nothing fancy but it was clean, provided the basics to make any meals in-house, and offered some good beach toys/equipment.<br/>The building and the condo are older, but are clean. The condo probably needs to be renovated fairly soon. It is showing age and wear but again - it was clean, convenient and priced appropriately.<br/>Building tenants tended to be older with some families spotted as well. It was a quiet building - however, be prepared if you have never been to Waikiki - it is a busy area so expect street noise. Although - it may have been louder the first night we were there as the "Spam Festival" was wrapping up (yes, Spam).<br/>All in all - if you want a simple, basic, affordable and convenient property in Waikiki - this is one I would recommend.

Extremely Unhappy with Rental Unit and Alii Beach Rentals I booked this unit 2 months in advance. I was told that I would receive a welcome packet a week prior and did not receive anything until the day of. I landed in HNL and received the welcome packet which instructed me to print the paperwork to leave on my dashboard on my car when I park. I emailed Shelly to ask her where there was a local Fedex to print the paperwork and did not hear back. I was able to find a Fed-ex and paid $6.00. It was such an inconvenience! <br/><br/>I finally checked into the room and the entire place had an a very strong odor. The unit itself was very dated. The toilet drops and pee on the toilet. The sheets had stains and the fridge and stove were filthy. There was no soap, garbage bags or toilet tissue. What was left there was a used bottle of Crown Royal and Grey Goose in the fridge. Yuck! There was NO way I was going to let my family with 2 small children stay 7 days in this unit. I was beyond disappointed. I immediately contacted Shelly to move me to another location and she said she would call me back in a few hours. I never heard from her.<br/><br/>I was forced to stay one night. The next day Kai the property manager contacted me. He was extremely nice and completely understood my situation. There were no units but he did offer me to refund my money and just charge me the night and the cleaning deposit. Cleaning deposit? I did not understand since the unit was filthy to begin with. At this point I just wanted to get out. I was forced to look online and was able to find another unit close by and such last minute notice. I plan on sharing my experience with others along with the pictures of the unit so that they will never have to experience the discomfort that I encountered. <br/><br/>The quick turnaround service from Kai was my only positive, other than that the unit and the lack of customer service from Shelly was so terrible. I visit Hawaii every year and I do not plan on contacting Alii Beach Rentals in the future.

First time experience w/ condo rental, had a great experience. This is the way to vacation! This was our first vacation condo rental versus staying in a hotel. This is the way to travel. The price we paid was very reasonable for the accomodations, and they were very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was a pleasure to use and pretty well equipped with an assortment of utensils. This saved a bit on money by having breakfast or lunch and snacks at home and usually going out for a nice dinner. The location is a walkable distance to beach. Tons of shopping and dining in the immediate surrounding areas. (An amazing breakfast at the Seaside Grill right next to condo!) The condo was comfortable and had tons of storage space for all your belongings. Nice to have lots of towels and paper products available when you first arrive. Facilities we clean, modest, but in good taste and condition. It felt safe and secure here; there was always a gaurd on duty around the clock at the entrance of condo. Had a security key to limit access to private areas for guests, such as elevators, parking structure and condo entry ways. Rental was easy, no hassles during our stay. Nice having laundry on premise (bring a roll of quarters, if not they charge you $1 for 75 cents). All and all, a great value for the price. Satisfied with all aspects of the use of this condo. Thanks and I would totally rent with you guys again! Hope to come back real soon to Hawaii! Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, August 2, 2011 That's right... why would you stay in a room when you can rent a home!

She did however call the maintenance guy who was going to come over, but we got the shower head working.<br/>I was a little annoyued at how long it took for an elevator as it seemed there just weren't enough in the place to accommodate all the people.

We enjoyed our stay at the Royal Kuhio. Great location. Some say that the condo was in need of updating but it is more that acceptable and is a great value for the price. I would be happy to stay there again.

We liked our stay at Royal Kuhio. The place was well located. The furniture was ok if you spend minimal time at the Condo like we did. We were able to cook. We had access to the Laundry room which is located on the 7th floor but had to pay for each load and the dryer. We did not have time to use the pool. We used the BBQ once but since it is windy, it took a long time to cook.

Great location, within walking distance to everywhere in Waikiki. Parking was included with the rental (hotels in Waikiki charge 10-20 dollars a night for parking), great pool and lounge area. The sofa bed needs to be updated, felt springs thru the mattress.

This location is great overall. The room is clean and feels larger than other rooms in the same complex. You can see significant strips of Waikiki and the Pacific between the buildings, and the fireworks on Friday evening from the lanai are spectacular! Even the bathroom and shower are in good shape which is more than I can say about other showers in the same complex. Getting to the lanai is another issue because the bearing wheel is completely worn down which means you have to drag this very heavy door across a metal track while wincing at the terrible noise it makes. If they could just get that door fixed, this property would be in tip-top shape. Loved my stay, would do it again in a heartbeat!

This was our first experience using a vacation property rental company and going through Alii was very easy. All questions asked were answered very quickly and professionally. The online reservation and payment system was very convenient. <br/>We were looking for affordability and convenience for our few days in Waikiki and this property delivered. It was nothing fancy but it was clean, provided the basics to make any meals in-house, and offered some good beach toys/equipment.<br/>The building and the condo are older, but are clean. The condo probably needs to be renovated fairly soon. It is showing age and wear but again - it was clean, convenient and priced appropriately.<br/>Building tenants tended to be older with some families spotted as well. It was a quiet building - however, be prepared if you have never been to Waikiki - it is a busy area so expect street noise. Although - it may have been louder the first night we were there as the "Spam Festival" was wrapping up (yes, Spam).<br/>All in all -

Only a few minor hiccups with the unit that were noted, but nothing of great concern. I would have rated the overall stay as a 5-star, but gave it a 4 for two reasons: 1- The noise on Kuhio Ave. Traffic has demonically increased over the last year with the introduction of several new tour bus companies. 2- There is a Harley Davidson motorcycle rental business just across the street. If you don't mind that kind of tail-pipe noise beginning at 7:30am, and lasting most of the day, then I am sure it will be fine. We did not spend a lot of time during the day in the unit, but morning coffee and evening drinks were a little too noisy for us. Thanks Shelly and Ali'i for another GREAT holiday. See you in a few months. Happy Holidays.

The booking didn't cause any problems at all. All went smoothly. Arriving and parking a car and also the path between parking area to the condo itself was a bit troubling, but only for the first time. <br/><br/>Condo itself was nice, two separate beds in bedroom, plenty of space, little windows though, but I didn't go to Waikiki to spend my vacation at bedroom anyway. <br/><br/>Overall no problems occured, EXCEPT! The wi-fi wasn't good at all, the connection speed was terrible. But as I contacted to the manager, the problem was solved in one day, as new hotspot router was delivered to the condo, with slightly better speed. Still not good, but not as worst as original. <br/><br/>There was few other quests in the apartement - little ants in the kitchen area. No trouble for me, but if you rent this place, be aware not to leave any food out of the fridge, as these little fellows seemed quite hungry =)<br/><br/>Oh yeah, the toilet knob didn't work that well either. Had to push hard and repeatedly to get the water

The unit kind of grows on you, even though it is old. We were pleased to discover new carpet upon our arrival. Lots of towels, dishes, etc. - even had a dishwasher, although we ate out most days cos there are lots of great restaurants in the vicinity. Corner unit was very bright and airy - during the day, the open windows kept the condo cool while at night the air con kept out the street noise. One negative is that it is not close to the beach.

The condo was conveniently located especially with a bus stop right out front. We had more of an ocean view than I thought we would as well as mountain views as we were in a corner unit. The furniture and kitchen could use some updating but for what we paid and where it was located, it was fine. Very basic, no frills. The 2 closets in the bedroom was a nice surprise. One downfall was not having a place to store my luggage upon checkout as I had several hours to wait before my flight so I felt stuck at the condo until my shuttle picked me up. It would have been nice to know about the luggage storage company in the welcome package.<br/>All in all, I would recommend it if you are on a budget.

We found the location to be great, very central. It's a noisy area with sirens etc, but we expected that. The front desk staff were mixed - one fellow was very nice while the other was a real grouch. <br/>The unit is a nice size, the appliances are in good order and clean. The view is of the city and you can see a bit of the ocean, so it's very nice to sit on the balcony. Alii Beach Rentals were very professional and helpful (thanks Shelly).<br/>The building is old and a bit worn but well-maintained. <br/>The big problem was the cleanliness of the unit. Upon arrival at midnight, we stayed up for a hour cleaning things. The kitchen cupboards were disgusting - they all had grease/oil stains dripping down them. The unit has a lot of utensils, pots/pans etc. However the utensil drawer smelt awful and the dishes were wet, so we washed everything before using them. <br/>The carpets were full of stains and felt dirty, I wore white socks on them and within a hour the socks were brown on the bottom.

Everything about the vacation rental was easy and surpassed expectations. Many of the vacation condos seem to be located at the far end of Waikiki, but this one was perfectly situated right in the hub of Waikiki at Seaside and Kuhio. Our apartment was a corner one with views of the Waikiki high rises, the ocean and Diamond Head. The price was great, the Wifi was super fast and getting in and out of the parking was easy and secure. <br/><br/>The apartment was very comfortable, the towels were super soft including the extra large beach towels. There were all the appliances we could want in the kitchen. Pool area was great, other guests were considerate and never noisy. <br/><br/>We'd definitely come here again.

It was a pleasant surprise when we first opened the door to the unit. Very clean, and beautiful view. Bathroom was small, but okey. Kitchen windows need curtains as the sun shines thru the windows all morning long, had to use cardboards to block the sun-rays, & keep the unit cool. Electrical plug-in need to be upgraded, getting worn. These were minor write ups. We would not hesitate to rent from them again. Instructions were well written, and had no problem getting keys & finding unit. Parking facility was really handy also.<br/>Thanks again.

We would definitely recommend staying in this condo. The view was great and it is a corner suite. The one side looked toward Diamond Head and the olther toward the ocean. While you could not see a huge amount of the ocean, you were still able to see quite a bit. You were also able to watch the fireworks show at the Hawaiian Village. The place was very clean and quiet. We will definitely stay here again and also recommend it highly. A short block and a half to the beach and a bus stop right in front of the building. International Market Place about a block away and lots of ABC stores.

This was our first vacation condo rental versus staying in a hotel. This is the way to travel. The price we paid was very reasonable for the accomodations, and they were very clean and comfortable.
