445 Nohonani St, Waikiki

This pink building feels like condos because all the rooms have full kitchens, but it’s run like a hotel, so we’re calling it a hotel. The decor is pink (surprise!) and green, mostly clean, but very dated. With all the older hotels in the area getting upgraded, we feel the Ilima may be left behind at this point. But it has some endearing qualities, including the warm staff who sing Hawaiian songs to guests in the lobby at 11:30 a.m. every Friday. They also offer shell lei making classes, which are very popular.

We have given this a Solid Gold Value in past editions, but its lack of updating prices it currently about what it’s worth. Studios (530 sq. ft.) are $178–$268, 1/1s (650 sq. ft.) are $230–$280, 2/1s (770 sq. ft.) are $300–$350. 3/2 penthouse with washer/dryer (1,450 sq. ft.) is $560–$600. Lots of discounts available.

What Readers Have to Say

“The tone of your book, the quality of the publishing and value of the information you provide is quite unique. I wrote a mountain bike guidebook for Moab a few years ago…but I am in awe of your guidebook. Wizard has done a great job with the printing, the binding and the color photography or your guide, —but the way the book gives the reader an honest feel for the island is remarkable. I can see clearly that you are coming from a place of love and respect for the island…I think it also is the standard for utilitarian/eco-friendly guidebooks everywhere.”
