photos are very misleading. my a/c just stopped working at 1am. I called the front desk, they tried to turn it on but it never came back on. they said there were no other rooms available. apparently it has happened before because the attendant made the remark that he thought they had fixed this problem. he brought me an oscalating fan that just circulated hot air. very unsatisfied.
Prices are fair as well as competitive, room was clean, and (this is a biggie) very close to everything including the marina, restaurants, shopping and more. This was all within walking distance. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The pool was small but still very nice and they carried the luggage to the bedroom without asking. I will be back!
The room is a little small as is the hotel. There is a lack of amenities here but I suppose I'm ok with that as long as I don't have to pay a resort fee. Bathroom is a little tight and it is hard to lock the bathroom door. Also if you're not sleeping right by the AC then you will not feel it.
It was clean.
The hotel did not have an elevator from the street level to the lobby. My wife has a difficult time climbing up and down stairs. She is handicapped. he room was small and there wasn't much room for suitcases.
The staff is wonderful. Hotel is very good to excellent.
price was right.
Very basic amenities and room could use some sprucing up. Had roaches.
The room smelled and it was not clean enought. The picture shown on the website does not reflect reality.
An ideal hotel for those who look for want to be near to a well-known shopping centre i.e Ala Moana Shopping Centre and also Waikiki. Just walking distance to both and can save on transportation. Near to a fast food outlet for those with children. Located by the main road, one feels safe walking even at night. I enjoyed walking to the main shopping area where boutiques are aligned. I could have taken the Waikiki Trolley but I chose to walk as it was a manageable walking distance where my children also did not complain of being tired after doing so.
The location is nice - and the views are beautiful.
The hotel needs cleaning - it has roaches
Nice location and inexpensive.
When we came down for breakfast, it was no food at all! The cleaning staff did not clean the bathroom. Towels were changed partially.
The facilities are quite attractive given the rate charged. This is a relatively small hotel located few 100 meters away from the beach; and at walking distance from Ala Moana Center. The room was clean and furnished as described. It had wired broadband Internet (but no wireless Internet), a TV, a phone (having a direct phone #), a mini-refrigerator, and a coffee-maker. The bathroom had a shower (no bathtub), a washbasin and a commode. The closet (which had a small safe inside) was also located inside the bathroom. Continental breakfast (included muffins, buns, fruits, coffee, milk, etc.) was made available around 8.00 AM each morning. The staff was quite friendly and helpful.
Rene, at reception, was very considerate and helpful, others were not. Comfortable room. Excellent bathroom. Nice coffee machine and coffee. Good lift.
Wifi was advertised on website, but they do not have it. Breakfast is advertised in documentation in room to be till 9:30, but they changed it to 9 and did not tell me. Very steep stairs to front door, difficult with heavy luggage.
employees are warm and helpful.
The Equuss is great value for money. Highly recommended for those looking for a clean friendly place to stay. A few blocks from Wakiki Beach but also away from the hussle and bussle of the commercial hub.
Very small swimming pool and only one lift to your appartment. Also lost our reservation but found it on our return.
