The hotel's location along the Ala Wai Canal provides ample opportunity to meet residents on a morning walk. Guests can also enjoy lounging at the hotel's outdoor pool.

Great value!

We knew that we would be traveling around the island and that the only time in our room would be to sleep. Hawaiian Monarch truly is a great value...short walking distance to everything in Waikiki including the beach and nightlife. And, easy access to the highway to get to everything else! All of the staff was very friendly and the Cream Pot restaurant in the hotel was a huge surprise with superior food and service...honestly, it was a real treat. I would recommend this hotel to travelers who plan to explore the island and who are in need of a simple, clean place to sleep!

Value for money

Very fiendly staff, neat, good house keeping - best hotel for the low cost. Only thing is you need to walk extra 10 minutes to reach the beach and shopping areas. But well connected by bus. If you plan to go from the hotel once in the day, finish all your activities and return at the end of the day, this is an ideal hotel for the dollar value.

to early for check out

Its so funny that we check in at 3pm and have to be out not even 24 hours. Wish the hotel industry would make exceptions or we can pay a little more to have a later checkout. I payed a full extra day just to stay 3 hours more. Have a good day

I love it very much

Very Quiet, and easy access to the buses in Honolulu. And an easy walk along the shopping area towards the International Market Place, the rooms were quiet, cable TV was Ok, and very clean, and I also had a very good view of the city, there was a cafe, and sundries store, and good secruity protection, love the cards keys, and also a mini car or scooter rental, and also a Drug store, and the ABC store... Very much love the place. Also a short walk to Waikiki Beach, and the Ala Moana Shopping Center, and connections to the Bus routes. Yes I would come back. Thank You....
