It was depends on room.
Location is very easy to access for the beach. They have bbq place, swimming pool but not big and Jacuzzi in outside. They have some DVD rental service but I didn’t use it. When I check in they give free small bottle of water and some beach bag sets. Because they under construction for jacuzzis so I couldn’t use it. At the ground floor has small shops and small cate. Food and drinks were not bad and at cafe staff are friendly. My room was sea side and also mountain side. Honestly, I liked mountain side. Can see some rainbow and beautiful sky so I like it. Sea side was can see tiny ocean from between high buildings so mountain side is better view. スタッフに日本語は通じません。私は海側より山側の景色がいいと思いました。アクセスが良くて食材を持ち込んで外でBBQもありと思いました。値段を見ると満足でした。
NO BEACH CHAIRS available, only heavy camp chairs.
We have stayed at Aston Waikiki Banyon many times in units managed by Koko Resorts. This year it seems they no longer supply BEACH CHAIRS. Instead they offer heavy metal Camp chairs which are too heavy to lug to Waikiki Beach. Baffling. And it is not much fun sitting in a high Camp chair at the beach. Too weird for words. The prices here have increased significantly in the past 3 years and now no beach chairs.... unacceptable.... We spend weeks here, retired snowbirders, so besides the usual tourist activities, we enjoy R&R in a beach chair.
Good Location, Mediocre Room (# 2204 Tower 1)
Room/Hotel is well located in the Southern end of Waikiki. 1 block from zoo, beach, restaurants, coffee, etc... Room itself left a less impressive imprint with very dated kitchen, broken drawers (at least the ones you could open), Broken cable on TV so neither TV worked, mold in shower corners, broken slider on bedroom divider, and hotel hallways never cleaned by staff (ie, vaccumed) the entire 7 days we were there. (dirt, food debris, small pieces of glass, etc.. all on floor the entire time we were there without ever being cleaned up). Beds were hard and creaky - felt more like cheap Motel beds. Room basically needs a full update. Pool was busy, with only 1 out of the 2 hot tubs open for use without explanation. And if you are in a rush, even with 4 elevators, you will need to be very patient. Can be waiting more than 10 minutes at times mid-day. Still gave it a 3 out of 5 simply due to the location, and the minimal time spent in the unit.
Clean & Convenient - No Frills
We stayed here for 11 nights in January 2020. For the price of the room, location and amenities, it fit the bill for us. The room was large, had a full kitchen, and the bed very comfortable. The decor was tidy, if not a bit tired. The wall above bathroom rail looked as though the rail had been ripped off the wall and hastily re-patched. The pool and spa area was simple and appeared well used by all guests. Unfortunately for 3 days during our stay the pool/spa area was cordoned off without notice. Noise from the road was incredibly noisy in our room on the 21st floor. I think this is just a Honolulu thing - the streets were busy almost around the clock. The soundproofing between rooms was great, we didn't hear any guests during our stay. Location of the hotel is good - one block from the beach & Waikiki strip. Great restaurants nearby - check out Lulu's for dinner and happy hour.
Apartment style accomodation with a great location and lots of space
Condo style accommodation very bright and spacious. Has a living room, full bedroom, kitchen with oven, dishwasher, full size fridge utensils, coffee maker and lots of storage space. Washroom is a bit older in terms of features the water pressure was just ok. TV, wifi, safe, iron and ironing board all in the room. Location is very convenient only 2 blocks from Waikiki beach and 2 blocks to all types of shopping: Nordstrom’s Rack, Macys, Ross and even upscale shops such as LV & Omega within 10 minutes walking distance. Many good restaurants close by as well as ABC stores. There is a convenience store and coffee shop located right in the facility. There is a pool, tennis court and laundry facility right on site.
