The condo itself was wonderful and better than the description online. The hotel that it is in could use a little work, but it was safe and staff were pleasant. We were able to park our rental there $30 a day so we knew it was safe. The pool bar didnt serve alcohol, so byob. But the location was perfect to th3 beach, shops, dining and highway for other adventures. Will definitely book again
We loved staying in the Bamboo Waikiki hotel with this apartment managed by Mark and team. It is an older room that may need some upgrading. But for the price and location that did not worry me what so ever. The staff on the desk were happy to answer questions but remember that any concerns or questions about the property need to go to the property manager group not Bamboo staff. The pool is beautiful. There is not alcohol in the bar near the pool. But they allow you to bring in purchased alcohol from the local shops. It had a full size fridge and small stove top and microwave. The TV in the lounge only has 5 channels but the TV opposite the bed has many more channels. The bathroom had two showers. The water can fluctuate between hot and cold very easily. It didn’t bother our family too much. We would stay here again. Short walk to the beach and main shopping strip of Hawaii. Thank you
Perfect location, only a block and a half from Waikiki beach. The apartment is just big enough with a tiny kitchen that you can cook easy meals in and a very comfortable bed for your head. You do have a partial view of the ocean too. Great for young couple.
This was a great condo if you don't want to have a car and park on property. It is an old hotel turned condo but the room was great! This does have a very small kitchen but it is well stocked. There are some supplies for the beach. One thing to keep in mind the hotel provides zero extras you may need you need to contact the host.
If you have a car parking on site is a huge problem. There are only 8 spots and your car barely fits you better be a confident driver. However there is great parking down the street which is not to bad of a walk away.
This place is great literally 2 blocks from the beach!!
TLDR; It’s got exactly what you need and you can’t beat the convenience of the location for the price you’re paying.
Just completed our week long stay at Mark’s place and we loved it! You are within a very short walk of Waikiki beach, Royal Hawaiian shopping center, and some of the best restaurants in the area. I will say, there are a few cons of the property: 1. Pricey paid parking ($150/wk or $30/d) and it most likely won’t be on the property due to their limited spots. 2. If you care about “luxury” or staying somewhere sparkling and new, this won’t be the spot for you. It is slightly dated and has a few quirks. However - it’s clean, cozy, and does have everything you need for a getaway Hawaii. 3. Hot water in the shower is not consistent. If you fidget with it enough you can get a long hot shower, but that’s not ideal for some. Personally, after sweating all day, a cooler shower is super refreshing and it didn’t negatively impact the stay.
The host was fantastic and super responsive leading up to our trip. The property has staff at the front desk that will also be a lot of help if needed. Overall we would 110% return and stay at this property!
All tings considered, this was probably the best apartment or house we've ever rented for vacation.
Our stay in 1203 was a home away from home except unlike our home in Canada it was only a few steps to the beach to amazing places to eat and shop
The condo had everything you need and a bonus beach chairs ect .
The owners were easy to communicate with
We had a fabulous time and hope to be back!!!
This was a great location to stay. Make sure to call ahead for parking availability. The water pressure was low and the shower didn't drain well.
Easy check in, responsive host, great location and nice amenities. We made good use of the quality snorkel gear, beach chair, and umbrella. Kitchen is cozy and the room divider is more of a privacy screen without any soundproofing, but it worked. Great crossbreeze with both balconies cracked open.
This property had everything we needed for our longer stay and so close to the beach! Definitely would stay here again
We had a wonderful stay at the Bamboo. Perfect location to walk to Waikiki beach and to the International Market Place. If you’re going to rent a car make sure you tell them in advance to reserve a parking spot there is only 10 and I suggest you get a very small car because it’s hard to maneuver in the garage. If you’re noise sensitive earplugs are a must at night there is a lot of street noise. The only reason I gave the facility condition a lower score was because one elevator was not working most of the week.
This was a great stay. Good location, near bus lines and biki rental bikes nearby since we didn't rent a car. The beach is a block away. The apartment was clean and everything we needed was provided. Would definitely stay here again if its available.
The staff at bamboo were very pleasant and made you feel safe. The room was not ready by 3pm and the living room TV does not have cable or anything attached to it for it to work. We had some minor issues with the room when we first arrived and when we contacted the person listed in the room binder, he advised us he is not the property manager and the binder is outdated. We tried contacting through VRBO but very slow to respond and gave me a wrong number to call for help. The 3rd day a nice lady from VRBO emailed back and offered to help but at that point we just dealt with the slow drain in the tub/shower combo, no hot water in the shower only stall, and the TV in the living area turns on but not attached to cable or anything that we could use. The lanai had a nice set up. The place provided boogie boards and beach chairs. Overall it was still a nice room and we enjoyed how the room was divided and the kitchen worked well for our needs. Would recommend if you stay longer than a couple of days is to bring additional paper towels and toilet paper. Also bring your own beach towels.
This is a cozy but well furnished unit in a great location. It was a very short walk to the main Waikiki beach and all the Waikiki shopping. The building also has a very nice secluded pool area with a well maintained tropical theme and a restaurant open in the evenings. The unit has a great view and the AC works very well. The pullout couch was comfortable and allows the unit to easily sleep 4. The kitchen is small but has a full size fridge and is fully equipped for cooking basic meals. The wifi works well and the unit has two TVs with basic cable.
Loved the stay here! We were super close to the beach and right next to delicious food options within a quarter of a block (spam masubi and poke lines out the door all day everyday). Great food, coffee, and shopping scenes around us. Pool was a little on the small side but super cute and fun to swim in. Elevator is fast and even though we were on the top floor (12th) we never felt like we were waiting for the elevator or hitting every floor on the way down. It was convenient that the laundry was also on our floor (there are 3 laundry floors in the building). The main con was that every few days, water was shut off for about 4 hours, I think due to construction, which is still ongoing. However, I think we paid a little less during our stay so I imagine that was the reason why we got a great deal. Overall we definitely recommend, we had a spacious wonderful stay on a budget!
