General description:............................(Back to top)
- The Kuhio Banyan is more a condo than a Hotel and it is located in the very center of Waikiki.
The original design was for a residential building with some shops in the ground floor. The property however was eventually developed into a time share ownership with a quasi hotel operation in place for those units that are unoccupied by their owners at any given time.

What you may not like about this hotel:............................(Back to top)
- The International Market Place, located across the street from this hotel, is under construction and this is a HUGE construction site.
- No pool or other amenities and even though parking is available for customers (fee applies like all hotels in Waikiki), it is not within the building.
- The units are very small that have no "real" beds. There is a fall down Murphy bed and a sofabed.
- Units have windows but not balconies, more suitable for an office than a hotel.
- The area is somewhat "seedy".
- Subpar internet service.
- Even though the building can be accessed 24/7, front office ours are from 7am to 11PM so for those that need to check in on arrival day after the closing time, special arrangements must be made in advance so keys can be left with security, no previous arrangement, no key.
- This is not a secured building.
- Because it is a condo operation, the security deposit is higher than a hotel operation ($250.00, the security deposit is meant to cover any damage to the unit and is normally refunded the day of departure).
