It ain't The Ritz, but the baby-pink Ilima is a great budget hotel with rooms that are huge for the price (and for Waikiki). They all have balconies and full kitchens--yes, you can actually live here for weeks, cooking for yourself and saving lots of money. A large supermarket is about 5 blocks away. A heated, although small, pool is onsite. Amazingly, they also have about 60 free parking stalls (first come, first serve). Views from the north-facing rooms I've been in are really good--they overlook a lovely canal and out toward the mountains, totally unobstructed by other buildings. Not-so-good stuff about the hotel: No dining options onsite, and the rooms are not stylish. There's no question that the hotel has that tired yesteryear look about it. Definitely not a happening hangout, either. But it has a nice mixed crowd of guests, including young couples, some families and groups of friends, and many visitors from both North America and Japan. Not a lot of bustle in the lobby, which actually makes it relaxing.

The Ilima Hotel is a budget friendly hotel located in Waikiki near the Ala Wai Canal. The hotel has bright pink trimmings with an old Hawaiian vintage feel. The lobby area is small but the staff is very friendly. I was greeted numerous times as I walked around the hotel. The rooms are plain looking and outdated but they are spacious and clean. The balcony is big enough for 2 people to sit outside and enjoy the view of the mountains and canal. All the rooms in the hotel have a kitchenette that come with a microwave, sink, stove, and refrigerator. There's a small swimming pool on the lobby level. There's also some vending machines and a conference room in the lobby level as well. The beach, International Market Place, and lots of restaurants are all within walking distance.

If you're hoping to save some money by cooking rather than dining out two to three times a day, this is a great place to stay. All rooms have a full kitchen equipped with a mini-oven and stovetop, microwave, refrigerator, freezer and essential cookware like plates, cups, bowls, pots, pans, coffeemaker, tea kettle and toaster. For a fee, you can get groceries delivered right to your room. The rooms themselves are are quite spacious -- even the studios -- and very nicely decorated. Some of the rooms feel more like condos than hotel rooms. There's ample closet space, an iron and board, and a safe to store passports and other valuables. There's also free, first come first serve parking. That's a big bonus because some hotels here charge more than $20 a day for parking and street parking is hard to come by. The negatives here have to do with the amenities offered outside your room. The dinky fitness center has a sauna and just one bike and one treadmill. The pool is tiny and offers views of nothing but neighboring concrete buildings and skyscrapers.
