    I liked everything but the hotel charged roomservice after I payed cash for the meal the man pocketed it

  • 6.2

    The hotel was fine, staff were a little overbearing and they really need to tone done the air freshener. You could smell the hotel from 50 metres away.

    The area around the hotel is noisy and the windows are not double glazed. But having a night club under the hotel with such poor sound insulation is ridiculous. We are you a young fun couple that can deal with noise but it was far too loud for us. I could only imagine what a family or older couple think. Unfortunately due to the noise we will not stay at the hotel or recommend to others.

    Not a great deal, the pool was nice.

    The food & drink is terrible & very expensive. We had a suite as it was our honeymoon and were disappointed with the room. The staff on reception weren't very friendly. The service around the pool for drinks was poor. The spa was tiny. The nightclub was absolutely awful - we left without even finishing our drinks. Overall we were very disappointed with The Modern, it cost us an awful lot of money & compared to a lot of other nice hotels we have stayed in it was poor.

    The design of the hotel was very modern and different from the other hotels on Waikiki.

    Even though we had posted on our online booking that we were on our honeymoon the staff put us on a room that was right next to the elevators. We complained and went through four people on the phone who didn't help and finally had to resolve the matter with the front desk people who seemed to think that there was no problem whatsoever... They were very rude and disrespectful.

    Building in great shape inside, close to the beach

    Not too big, modern design, young people

  • 7.8

    Ukelele in the room and sarongs for use was a special surprise... Use of plantation shutters in the room gives a tropical feel.

  • 9.6

    The Staff are amazing! The best in Waikiki for sure! Nothing was too much effort, simply wonderful....

  • 6.6

    I will choose it again. The pool is a very nice design, but a bit small. Very private during stay, only the 1st day we found used water bottle behind the sofa. Good tv and shower!

    Very good

    Very funky, interesting and different. Great rooms. Loved the big balcony.

    Not as well located as some other hotels in relation to restaurants.

    We could see the ocean even though we paid for a "city view". And the location was good for the event we attended.

    Bathroom had lots of hair on floor and in sink when we arrived. Air conditioner was very noisy and the night club on the ground floor is very noisy very late and we could hear it all in our 6th floor room.

    The pool area, bar, restaurant, location, staff, modern rooms - all the little details - from sarong in the room to free wi-fi.
