Pros: location, location and location, also the staff are very friendly. this hotel has history, has seen its glory.
Cons: bathroom is tooo tight, less than 30 sft. a normal bathroom should be at least 36sf (6*6)with shower or 40sf with tub (5*8) at least according to building code. imagine this is a 5 star hotel. the grout are full of black mold, the ceiling vent are dirty.

Pink paradise! Classy historic hotel...
Pros: I loved this property compared to the ones around it. It excused old world charm and class and the staff (particularly at breakfast) were so lovely and friendly. The special beetroot pink pancakes are so delicious & such a novelty given the pink theme. Also the pink bathrobes in the room were a lovely touch.
Cons: The bathroom was a complete let down considering this is an upscale hotel. They are outdated and the small bathtub with a shower curtain felt like it belonged more in a motel then an gorgeous hotel like this. I feel like a nice shower/bathtub is so important when staying at a nice hotel. Also I was disappointed to find that on the balcony there was a lot of rubbish in the cactus garden just over the railings which I thought was a bit of a rookie oversight.

Old fashioned romance and glamour...
Pros: The iconic pink building and tropical gardens were the perfect setting for our romantic first wedding anniversary. The staff offered exceptional service and the atmosphere was that of an old Hollywood set added to that a stunning view from our room of Waikiki beach.
Cons: Being in the old historic building though romantic had its downside being the bathrooms are exceptionally small and awkward and the tubs definitely not for two! Also we found a lack of amenities in the room such as tea but no kettle and one single solitary paper cup for us which is very poor given the hotel rating and price.
