Coconut Waikiki Hotel
Three blocks up from the beach, the Coconut Waikiki is a bright and cheery budget-minded boutique hotel from the San Francisco–based Joie de Vivre group. It occupies a converted 10-story apartment building, which may be why it feels homier than other hotels. The rooms, too, are plenty roomy (250 to 400 square feet for the standard quarters; up to 1,000 square feet for the suites), and many have balconies and kitchenettes. The look is retro-modern—in a Gidget Goes Hawaiian sort of way—with lime-colored sofas, shag carpets, and a bubble motif on seemingly everything, adding to the playful mood of the place. Amenities are minimal (no restaurant, no bar, and a teeny pool), but there’s free, speedy Wi-Fi, DIY laundry (for a fee), and, every morning, friendly international guests gathering in the lobby to make their own waffles.

Neighborhood Vibe
On the fringes of Waikiki, the Coconut is a 10-minute walk to the beach but, on the upside, is removed from the congested tourist zone and constant traffic jams. So it’s easy enough to zip out of Waikiki and head to Chinatown for dinner. And the hotel is directly across the street from Ala Wai Canal, which has a pleasant running path.
Need to Know
Who's it for: Price-conscious travelers or those who don’t plan to spend much time at the hotel; kitchen-equipped rooms may be tempting for families, but the tiny pool and long walk to the beach may not be ideal for young kids.
Our favorite rooms: Mountain-view rooms on the higher floors are quieter and overlook the Ala Wai Canal and the Ko’olau Mountains beyond.
Pay to park: Street parking in the neighborhood is a headache; consider springing for the $28 valet fee.
