Such a Nice Surprise

We stayed at the Ilima Hotel for 3 nights (after changing from a horrible hotel) and it was such a nice surprise. It’s an older style hotel but it is immaculately clean, very spacious rooms and we had a little kitchen area – with a decent sized fridge.

Perfect location

The staff were all friendly and welcoming. The room was spacious with 2 double beds and a kitchenette with a large balcony overlooking the canal. The location is perfect, just a few minutes walk to the main street and another block to the beach.

Superb value for the Money

Superb value for the Money. All the staff we met at the Ilima were very friendly. We never passed in or out without receiving a cheery smile and an ‘Aloha’. They are a credit to the hotel.

Best value for the location

Great value & location. We stayed at 3 different hotels during our time in Honolulu. This was by far the best value for the location. It was close to the beach & very close to much of what Waikiki has to offer in terms of shopping, restaurants, tourism, and transportation.

Delightfully friendly

Delightfully friendly. It’s not often that hotels in big cities offer such friendly service. The Ilima is close to the main sights, close to public transit, and walking distance to the beach. Parking is free. Most important of all, though, the staff are such friendly, informative and helpful people that make the stay memorable. I was quite impressed by this.
