If you are just looking for a decent place to stay, Pagoda Hotel is a good one. We stayed in a room with a kitchenette, so we were able to cook a quick meal if needed. Everything that you need is all close by the hotel. My sons visited the Koi pond and fed the fish . I recommend the...

Very unfriendly staff, where we stayed was not attached to the main hotel, it was not what the pictures looked like on the nett when booked, building was a dirty looking building across the road from the main building, disappointing all round, even the locals we spoke to were amazed we were staying there; its only benefit was it was...

One great location. Walking distance from Ala Moana BLVD and many more important places. Wall-mart is a whisper away. Rooms are average and the bed is comfortable. No free wifi is a big disappointment. You need to pay $9 and $.40 tax per day for internet via a cable. You need a laptop for that. if you are only on...

We live in Hawaii and needed a place to stay while home repairs were being done. Pagoda Hotel was the perfect solution for us. It's conveniently and centrally located in Honolulu near shops, various eateries; yet also minutes away from Waikiki. Great value and service, very friendly and helpful staff. It was like our home away from home for us....

When we arrived we were given a room in the Terrace. It was really horrible, with old damaged furniture and depressing colours. When I rang the front desk, we were moved straight to the Tower (building with reception in it). Our room was refurbished, similar to the one pictured above, clean and had a view. The staff were extremely helpful,...

We spent one night at this hotel before leaving Hawaii. The Hotel is way different from what is shown in the website photos. The rooms are not well kept although not dirty. Extremely old fashioned and overpriced. In the corridor there was an hawful smell. The personnel was very friendly anf helpful.
