beautiful mountain views We enjoyed our stay at this 30th floor condo. The condo was clean and comfortable. The bed was so very comfortable.<br/>We enjoyed all the views. We liked watching the school kids practicing sports. We were surprised to find that from the side of the sofa, looking towards and the kitchen, we would see the beach. So very nice . . . <br/>Having the dishwasher and all the plates and glasses was wonderful. The kitchen was fully equipped!!<br/>Only downside was that the condo is a little outdated, especially older wall to wall carpet and the kitchen and bathroom flooring. <br/>We would stay there again and hope to in the future but not until the pool deck is finished and opened as we really missed being able to take a quick dip in the pool each morning. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Monday, November 4, 2019 Aloha and thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay at the condo and it was clean and comfortable, fully equipped, and you enjoyed all of the views.

Ok but some issues This was our second time staying at the Royal Kuhio with Ali'i Beach Rentals. We love the location of the buildings and the unit was nice. <br/>We had issues with a missing second key for the unit, we let Ali'i know it was missing Friday night by email and they gave us a spare on Monday afternoon. <br/>The fridge is also very old and didn't keep cold on the highest setting, we ended up having to throw out most of our groceries which was a huge dissappointment as we prefer to make our own meals which is why we opt for a condo over a hotel. We told Ali'i about the fridge, they had people come and look at it who said it would be replaced but it hadn't been before we left. I would recommend checking on the fridge before renting this unit. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, October 1, 2019 Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are happy to hear you loved the location of the building and the unit you stayed in was nice. We apologize for the delay with the spare key, we had to get a building fob to go with the key set and the Royal Kuhio office was closed on the weekend. We appreciate your feedback on the refrigerator we will get that fixed as soon as possible! Mahalo

Great Stay in Waikiki Very central, clean,quiet, condo. We really enjoyed our stay. It was great to have all cooking amenities and McDonalds was right across the street which was handy for breakfasts! The pool was not available which was a bummer but the beach was a 5-10 minute walk away. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Monday, April 29, 2019 The beach is greater than the pool! We are excited for the new pool deck when its completed this summer, until then, property description clarifies the shut down and the rate reflects the closure too. McDonalds across the street is a win win for everyone!

Base Camp We always have a great time when visiting Hawaii as we were born and raised there. We spend most of our time visiting friends and family all over the island, not a lot of time spent in the unit or in Waikiki. We like the Royal Kuhio because of the location (very easy to get in and out of Waikiki) and the parking space included with the unit. It is also a safe and secure building with a security guard in the lobby and a few different entry points that need a key fob to gain entrance. A second key fob was not in the unit upon check in (as stated in the check in instructions) so I Immediately emailed and was told it would be 3 days before they could get me the second fob. Late afternoon on the 3rd day of our stay I had to call and remind them, and they brought it to me. 3 full days into our 5 day stay. <br/>The unit itself was very clean, but worn. Utilitarian. Carpet has lived its useful life, and kitchen cabinets are peeling from water damage and age.<br/><br/> Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Sunday, July 28, 2019 Aloha and thank you for taking the time to leave us a review!

Disappointng I do love the location & concept of these properties, however was extremely disappointed with this particular condo.<br/>Firstly, when we arrived I found that one (of the only two) lamps in the bedroom was damaged and needed to be replaced. Another lamp in the lounge room had a blown bulb. Both of these problems took two days to get fixed.<br/>The toilet flush mechanism didn't work properly and the carpets in the lounge/dining room needed vacuuming. The bed sheets were disgusting - almost threadbare/covered in holes - WTF.<br/>Why weren't these defects rectified by the maid service & who is responsible for checking the condo is suitable before each let?<br/>The louvered windows turned the condo into a wind tunnel and made sleep almost impossible and the air conditioning unit was soooo noisy that its use wasn't an option.<br/>To protect your reputation I would suggest removing this condo listing until it's been updated/remodled Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, December 12, 2017 Thank you for the hight remarks on our service. We have upgraded the sheets and blankets and the unit has gotten its regular carpet cleaning. We will continue to get better and this review helps, mahalo!

A Very Disappointing Annoying Frustrating Experience Our property rental was our least favourite experience out of all our Hawaii trip! Whilst the property itself was clean in relevance to how old it is, and has a convenient location, these are the only positives I’ve got to say about the whole apartment and building!! The windows are so old, they don’t block the noise outside. And being on the 30th floor, we were hearing wind whistles ALL the time, which prevented us from sleeping properly. It was SO annoying. Who wouldn’t like sleeping on their holidays??? Also, the bedroom didn’t have a ceiling light, so we had to rely on the bedside lamp, and there was only 1 of these because the other one was broken in the cupboard. Not enough lighting for sure. Also, across the room from us seem to live some hoarders (their door was partially open at one stage and you could see they barely had a space to move). Whilst we’re not being judgemental here, this meant that most of the time we had junk in the hallway and right across our door as we walk in and out of the apartment. Add to all of this that 2 out of the 3 lifts leading to our apartment stopped working (not sure if intentionally or not). This meant that we had to wait for 15 to 20 minutes each time we wanted to get in and out of the building, and suffocate in the lift with 20 or so more people! And if we had forgotten something in the property, that’s 1 hour gone just waiting for the lifts. This is 1 hour of precious time we PAID for to HAVE FUN in Hawaii, not to get frustrated waiting for a lift. Overall, a very disappointing experience to say the least. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Thursday, July 19, 2018 By the marks given, we can see that the things on our control, we hit out of the park. The older jalousie windows are cumbersome and original, but that does not mean we canʻt look for some kind of solution. Our maintenance department will tackle this project! We donʻt know what happened to these elevators and we cant get a repair date. We are very sorry this took away from an otherwise great trip!!

Waikiki It is a tiny one bedroom. It was clean and in a good location.

Enjoyed the apartment. Great location and great views. We love the location. Thank you for letting us check in early as we arrived at 6.39 am, apart from the toilet not working , they had that fixed straight away. If I just want to point out that it might be good if you can replace the bedside light unit in bedroom as there isn&#x2019;t any other light except the one bedside light on the left but there isn&#x2019;t any on the right. It will give the extra light in the room. The table lamp there now needs replacing as the knob isn&#x2019;t working so I was pulling cord off the wall when time to sleep and too dark to connect it in the middle of the night so had to use the mobile ph as a torch,.... very inconvenient, but otherwise great place with all our needs.

Vacation in June - July We spent a week in this condo and we really enjoyed it. The only thing to complain about is the A/C we makes a lot of noise and didnt cool down enough, we solved this by opening the windows and getting the wind through the condo. This however lead to a lot of noise because of a busy Waikiki which isn't the owners fault by any means.<br/><br/>Thank you for letting us stay here for an entire week. It worked great for us, very nice to be so close to the beach and have parking included in the price which makes trips across the island to much easier!<br/><br/> Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Wednesday, July 20, 2016 Very nice to read that your really enjoyed yourselves in Waikiki and at our unit.

Hidden Gem Being on a budget...i found this hidden gem. This condo is on the 30th floor where you get a beautiful view of the beach and the city along with a lovely breeze. It's 2 blocks away from the beach and shopping center. There's a Seaside Cafe on the corner that has $5 breakfast selections with a good size portion. No parking fee or daily resort fee...a definite plus in my book. My family spent most of the time outdoors so it was just perfect. Comfy and cozy. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and family.

Our stay in 3001 Royal Kuhio The place is in fair condition, was clean when we moved in. The location is great, very close to the beach. I would personally recommend to get rid of the carpet and put laminate floor in the unit. Also, the kitchen and the bathroom floor would benefit from ceramic tiles instead of vinyl floor that is there right now. Those are the low hanging fruits in terms of renovation that would greatly improve the overall appearance, and also very easy and cheap to implement. Also, the hallway adjacent to the elevator could use a new carpet as well. The existing one is very dirty.

Disgusted by Alii Beach Rentals property Great views from 30th floor. Tired looking unit, furniture needs updating.Biggest problem on arrival entire access to unit stripped for painting, door sealed and painting in progress.<br/>Called Alii Beach Rentals who responded they were not responsible for work in common areas.Spoiled our 4 days in Hawaii.Eventaully pressured Alii Rentals to offer us an equivalent unit in another condo complex as this unit was uninhabitable for our stay. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Friday, May 12, 2017 The building is updating the paint and carpet in the common hallways of the building, it is going to make a huge difference for the overall guest experience. This does not bother most people, including the full time residents who live in the building. The work crew will work with guest, and the renovation is a gradual process with different steps to it. It is very hard for us to know where they are at, which floor, and which stage of the process during any given time. In that respect, it is very difficult to give incoming guest an accurate notice, but we will always work with our guest to provide the best stay we can.

Great Stay in Perfect Location! This property could not be in a better location! My husband and I stayed with our two teen sons and the space was big enough for the 4 of us for 6 days! The boys slept on the pull out sofa with no complaints. Even in HOT summer, the condo was great! Just close the windows and curtains during the day, run the fan and AC and the room is nice and cool throughout. It is very safe to walk in this area day and night. We never had any issues with the property or feeling unsafe. The curtains are a bit worn and tattered, but for the price and convenience of having a kitchen, I can over look those things. We were a day late due to a canceled flight and all worked out perfectly. The rental company even called me back to remind me of my pre purchased insurance to file the claim to get our first night reimbursed. Awesome job. We would definitely stay at this location again if we are every back in Hawaii!!

Our first vacation in Hawaii We (my family) were very happy with the condo. While a bit older, the unit was clean and well kept, and all the expected amenities were there and in working order. The unit is roomy, and was a great size for my family of 3. Has AC in the living room, but not in the bedroom, but this was not a problem as the evening breeze kept everything nice and comfortable. Came with the all important kitchen, and lanai to enjoy the morning coffee. The location is excellent, close to the hubbub, lots of places to eat, and only a couple blocks to the beach. The self check in was detailed and we did not need help to get into the unit. This place comes with a parking spot which is a BIG bonus. Some of the other places charge $20-$30 a day. Definitely a plus! Also take advantage of the 7th floor deck with the heated pool, bbq, and the recreation room. All in all, my family was very comfortable and happy staying at the unit, A great value for sure.

It was a little dated, but fine for a week's stay.

Waikiki stay The condo was very comfortable and exceptionally well equipment. We had a very enjoyable stay. One very minor point - the metal tags for operating the garage gate and for access to the building were temperamental and did not work consistently. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, June 25, 2013 Alan, thanks for taking the time to review your stay.Yes the garage gate is a bit difficult, but we'll add that note to the check in instructions, so that our guests are aware.

Great Condo for family It's really a home away from home. The unit was just right for us (a family of 2 adults and 2 teenage kids). The kitchen was great, complete with everything that we need for cooking and eating. The furnitures are kind of old though. One of the chair's screw was loose, the pull-out bed's spring is already giving up and saggy. When we were there, it was so windy when we open d windows and sliding door on d lanai. We could also hear the street noise even if we were way up to the 30th floor. But the view was so great, mostly mountain and city view with some ocean view. Plenty of towels were provided, including beach towels, beach chair and umbrella. They were so useful. The only thing missing in the unit is a bathroom floor rug to wipe some splash. We are not allowed to use the towels. If we ruin it, we pay for it. <br/><br/>Location is great! Just about 2-3 blocks away from Waikiki beach. We thought it was a long walk but we did not mind it coz we were in the middle of everything and there are so many things to see while walking. <br/><br/>Parking was free so we rented a car. It was very convenient.<br/><br/>My kid loved it. He rated the condo unit 10 out of 10. He initially said it was a 9 bec we couldnt figure out how to work the cable. When we finally did, he said it was already a 10. The kids especially loved the free wifi. <br/><br/>All in all, our stay was great! Will definitely consider staying here again when we come back to Oahu in the future.

Worst of all is the carpeting. At one point in its life it used to be white. Now it's just an old dirty version of its former self. It's a shame because this condo is in a wonderful location.

Filthy carpet ruined our mood We stayed in Royal Kuhio before and had a great experience, so we decided to do it again this time around, but this time was not so great. First impression takes the cake, and the first thing we saw after we opened the door was this huge black, dirty, nasty looking carpet stain as well as other black stains around the living room. We don't know how long the stain's been there and I don't know if there's mole or anything harmful coming from it. Contacted Alii Beach Rentals and left message but no one returned our call during the 4 days we've been there. Also, there's no AC unit in the room, just a plug in fan. The AC unit outside is loud and only blows the sofa and doesn't really cool down the room much. The windows can't be closed tight so it makes loud whistle noise when wind blows. Last but not least, there are tiny ants crawling around. Oh, and shower head. A nice shower is something that is crucial in a place like Hawaii since it's always hot. The shower head in this apartment is probably 20 years old. Seriously, putting in a $40 massaging shower head is not going to kill you and it makes everybody happier. This obviously shows that the owner is only in this for the money and not customer satisfaction.<br/><br/>The only decent things about this apartment is the view in the morning and free parking.

Lovely Stay The condo was frankly perfect. The size was great for me and my mom. We were out visiting my new grandchild (my mom's great-grandchild) and this condo provided us a comfortable place to stay and allowed me to show my mom the site's from a great rather central location to the action and not far from my daughter's place. I'm not a big fan of seeing all the action so the view toward the mountains was perfect. The mountain view also afforded us an absolutely perfect breeze through the opened windows. We didn't use the air conditioner once. And since we faced away from Waikiki the noise wasn't too bad either. Everything was wonderful except for one small bother which was the ants. Roy came out and sprayed but they were back in a couple of days. We had to keep pretty much everything in the fridge. Lost a box of cookies right off the bat because I didn't know about them and the box ended up full of ants when I came back at the end of the day. Bummer, but as far as location and the condo itself it was perfect. In fact if I come back with my husband, I would get this exact unit again. The layout is wonderful and that breeze can't be beat. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, November 17, 2015 Thanks for the notice, the unit is on scheduled pest control and we have not noticed much ants since.

Decent Rental, Great View, Parking! The unit is an older, clean unit with all the necessary appliances for a short-term stay. The parking is a great inclusion, and the view is awesome. Note that there is only A/C in the main room, so the bedroom can get very hot and humid, which can make sleeping difficult. <br/><br/>There were little issues during the stay (overflowing lanai condensate pans, running toilet, very small water ants by the kitchen sink, no lock on the lanai door), but these were basically background items that you get with an older unit. There are only 3 elevators for most of the floors in the building, and a one-way ride averaged 4 stops during daytime hours with 10 people per elevator. There is no A/C in the elevators or in the upper hallways, so 90 degree days can make for a hot ride up to the condo. <br/><br/>The property manager's service, from their email and phone communications to their smartphone app, made this a completely simple and effortless transaction. Ali'i Beach Rentals gets a 5 star rating as an organization. <br/><br/>Overall, we would stay there again, and would definitely rent again from Ali'i.

First stay in Waikiki We never really know what to expect when we travel abroad and stay in accommodation. Our stay at Royal Kuhio 3001 was no different. We often see pictures of the rooms but in most cases the pictures used are always of the premises as they were new. This particular unit wasn't new as we expected but it was reasonably clean. The position on the 30th floor was quite good and and the apartment block is in a very convenient spot, in central Waikiki. The furniture was in reasonable condition except for the dining room suite which was in need of new chair coverings and the table top was bubbling. The air conditioner was ancient and made a terrible noise when running. There were ants in the apartment but no insect spray. I don't think it should be left to the renter to provide that type of thing. The carpet was nice but I noticed there was a stale odour of sweat in the bedroom coming from the carpet and could probably use a shampoo of some kind. We stayed there for 7 nights. It had a small separate kitchen and most electric items that you might want for cooking with a good size fridge. 2 TV's and WiFi, but only in the room which is a shame. My wife my daughter and I were quite happy with the size. Overall not a bad place to stay.

Very central, close to the beach,International Market, Food Pantry for groceries and Starbucks right across the street. There's a L-shaped pool on a large deck on the 7th floor with lots of lounge chairs and the free secured parking in the building was a bonus.

They responded immediately and efficiently two separate times to our needs. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our only disappointment was losing money in 2 separate dryers that didn't work. We called the number that was posted in the laundry room and left all the necessary information but did not receive a reply. I want to point out that this was not connected with Alii Beach Rental but a separate maintenance company within the building.

Good value at a great location Booking through Alii Rentals made the process easy. Their enter/exit instructions were clear and easy to follow.

We (my family) were very happy with the condo. While a bit older, the unit was clean and well kept, and all the expected amenities were there and in working order. The unit is roomy, and was a great size for my family of 3. Has AC in the living room, but not in the bedroom, but this was not a problem as the evening breeze kept everything nice and comfortable. Came with the all important kitchen, and lanai to enjoy the morning coffee. The location is excellent, close to the hubbub, lots of places to eat, and only a couple blocks to the beach. The self check in was detailed and we did not need help to get into the unit. This place comes with a parking spot which is a BIG bonus. Some of the other places charge $20-$30 a day. Definitely a plus! Also take advantage of the 7th floor deck with the heated pool, bbq, and the recreation room. All in all, my family was very comfortable and happy staying at the unit, A great value for sure.

This property could not be in a better location! My husband and I stayed with our two teen sons and the space was big enough for the 4 of us for 6 days! The boys slept on the pull out sofa with no complaints. Even in HOT summer, the condo was great! Just close the windows and curtains during the day, run the fan and AC and the room is nice and cool throughout. It is very safe to walk in this area day and night. We never had any issues with the property or feeling unsafe. The curtains are a bit worn and tattered, but for the price and convenience of having a kitchen, I can over look those things. We were a day late due to a canceled flight and all worked out perfectly.

The place is in fair condition, was clean when we moved in. The location is great, very close to the beach. I would personally recommend to get rid of the carpet and put laminate floor in the unit. Also, the kitchen and the bathroom floor would benefit from ceramic tiles instead of vinyl floor that is there right now. Those are the low hanging fruits in terms of renovation that would greatly improve the overall appearance, and also very easy and cheap to implement. Also, the hallway adjacent to the elevator could use a new carpet as well. The existing one is very dirty.

The position on the 30th floor was quite good and and the apartment block is in a very convenient spot, in central Waikiki. The furniture was in reasonable condition except for the dining room suite which was in need of new chair coverings and the table top was bubbling. The air conditioner was ancient and made a terrible noise when running. There were ants in the apartment but no insect spray.

The unit is an older, clean unit with all the necessary appliances for a short-term stay. The parking is a great inclusion, and the view is awesome. Note that there is only A/C in the main room, so the bedroom can get very hot and humid, which can make sleeping difficult. <br/><br/>There were little issues during the stay (overflowing lanai condensate pans, running toilet, very small water ants by the kitchen sink, no lock on the lanai door), but these were basically background items that you get with an older unit. There are only 3 elevators for most of the floors in the building, and a one-way ride averaged 4 stops during daytime hours with 10 people per elevator. There is no A/C in the elevators or in the upper hallways, so 90 degree days can make for a hot ride up to the condo. <br/><br/>The property manager's service, from their email and phone communications to their smartphone app, made this a completely simple and effortless transaction.

Stayed in suite 3001 for 8 nights with my husband and two daughters ages 18 and 15. The condo was very clean (new carpets) and contained everything needed for the duration we were there(especially the kitchen). Great view of the canal and the beach from the condo. Although we were on the 30th floor, it was a bit noisy at night even with the windows closed. The location of the condo was perfect. Very central, close to the beach,International Market, Food Pantry for groceries and Starbucks right across the street. There's a L-shaped pool on a large deck on the 7th floor with lots of lounge chairs and the free secured parking in the building was a bonus. We had two separate situations that required assistance from Alii Beach Rentals (needed extra bedding and beach towels and an accidental locked bedroom door). They responded immediately and efficiently two separate times to our needs. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our only disappointment was losing money in 2 separate dryers that didn't work.

We have been in this condo almost 3 months and enjoy it very much. We rented the same unit last year and hope to stay here again next winter. The location is very convenient and covered parking is good. We have nearly everything we need for cooking and housekeeping for the long term stay. Laundry facilities are good.

It was difficult to notice the overall cleanliness of the unit because the carpet throughout the unit was grimy and dirty. Apparently, the street and parking garage grime had been tracked into unit. In addition to the hesitancy to walk around barefoot we notices fleas jumping up on our ankles. Some of the dishes were dirty when pulled from cupboard to be used.<br/>Otherwise we were happy with our stay.<br/>Grant Kerr

We had a great time staying at the Royal Kuhio. The location was perfect, only a few minutes walk to bars, supermarkets and the beach. Also it was very nice to have a parking lot reserved for the apartment.<br/>Unfortunately, the waste disposal unit in the sink caused a few small problems when switching on the dishwasher, also the drain pipe in the tub was a little blocked which we took care of ourselves. The apartment fit three people easily, although the futon was not very comfortable. <br/>Still, we had a great time and arranged ourselves, and would definitely book a condo at the Kuhio again. All in all it was clean and comfortable, the staff was very friendly, and everything worked out perfectly.

An exellent area to stay at in Waikiki.<br/>The unit on the 30th floor is on the shaded side of the building provides a great view of the mountain area and from the side windows the sea.The furnishings are a bit tired and need attention. The unit is perfect for a short stay and handy to all amenities. We prefer to stay in this building when holidaying in Waikiki.

We liked our stay at this property. It was clean and kitchen had everything one would need for cooking and in pretty good condition. Bathroom was good as well though shower pressure was a little weak. It has partial view of ocean - you really have to look to see it :). Parking spot is pretty small and it is irritating the number of times you have to put in the key to get in and out.<br/><br/>The only real issue we had at the property was that the sofa bed was kind of broken at one end and our kids had trouble sleeping on it. What's worse is that despite two messages we did not hear back from property manager! The last day someone else parked in our spot in the garage. We asked the security guard what we can do and we were told to contact the owners. For us that is property manager. We knew we will not hear back from her, so we made alternate arrangement, but it was inconvenient.

We had great stay at Royal Kuhio. Location was perfect! everything is in a walking distance. The building is very safe. We had a security person always at the entrance. The room was very clean and they provided us plenty of towels, beach towels, and beach<br/> mat. The view from the room was beautiful! We were able to see waikiki city view including beautiful mountains! The room was on 30th floor, so there was nothing to block our view. The fireworks that they had on Friday night was amazing! The staff were very<br/> professional and friendly. They always had quick response before and during our stay. I asked a minor question via email during my stay, and a staff visited us at our room less than an hour to assist us! I would definitely stay at Royal Kuhio again. It was<br/> perfect! Mahalo!!!

Great location and close to the beach and the shops.... The parking spot is little small for a big car. Other than that, it is a great place to stay.
