If you want to live large, yet save a little in Waikiki, look no further than the Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel. Centrally located on Kalakaua Avenue and directly across from Waikiki Beach, the hotel features whimsical architecture (designed to resemble a Chinese lantern) and is within walking distance from the Honolulu Zoo, Royal Hawaiian Center, Waikiki Aquarium, and other popular island activities. With an oceanfront location and unbeatable room rates, the Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel is a gem in Waikiki.
There's no place like the OCEANFRONT rooms (1404 & 1305) of this awesome hotel! The panoramic view of the Kuhio and Waikiki beaches combined is a picture so perfect! This is the main reason why we kept on coming back to this hotel. It's like a home away from home. Thanks to all the staffs, you all made our vacation complete. Keep up the good work God bless you all. Aloha!

No frills budget hotel
(San Francisco, California)
This is a basic, no frills budget hotel. I usually stay at the larger resorts when in HNL, but since this was a short 3 night trip we decided to stay here to save some money. I probably wouldn’t stay here again because it lacked amenities, but overall it was a nice stay for the price.
What I liked:
- Great location (right across the street from the Duke’s statue).
- Staff was very friendly and accommodating when we asked for a late checkout.
- Beds were comfortable
- Balcony with ocean front view was amazing!
- Concierge service (although they didn’t help very much)
What I didn’t like:
- Bathroom and shower were REALLY small!
- lots of outside noise - garbage trucks, leaf blowers in the morning (sliding glass door is old and not double paned). We were in the 5th floor
- No real lobby area
A comfortable stay
We booked an ocean view room for three nights - we had a great view, and our room was quieter than the room we stayed in last time (which was close to the service elevator) but it is still noisy, from the traffic outside to the air conditioner in the room (which did affect my sleep, even with ear plugs). Rooms are small but that is okay. Very clean, especially considering all the sand that must get tracked in to every room, very friendly staff, great location. For some reason, there is always a huge line up at Eggs 'n Things, so even though being a guest at the hotel entitles you to a 10% discount, we just never took advantage of it because we didn't want to spend all that time in line.
Beds were very comfortable, shower was small but adequate. It was nice to have a newspaper every morning. The location is phenomenal - right across the street from the beach! I would stay here again, I think it is the best value in Waikiki.
Stayed at this accommodation for 3 nights, regretted that I didnt stay longer. Very basic but very clean rooms. The staff are excellent and pleasant...ALL OF THEM, special mention to Shawn at reception who is very helpful and great to deal with. We stayed at 1205 which had a fantastic view of Waikiki. We arrived early (8am) and Shawn did his very best to get us a room so we can rest - we were in our room by 9am!
The bed was clean and comfy, and though room was outdated, it was very clean and had everything you need. Bathroom was small, but expected given the size of the bldg.
The also offer a free shuttle and their driver, Earl, was wonderful!
Would definitely stay here again!
