Hotel overview

Surfing was cultivated in our backyard and the lifestyle it embodies is central to who we are. Waikiki is famous for its beautiful beaches and we’re steps away from them. But you’ll be just as drawn to the timeless charm and laid-back vibe as the The Twin Fin Hotel welcomes you here.

We’re a retreat. A place to relax and take in the beauty of Waikiki’s iconic sights and rolling swells, from sunrise to sunset. We’re a gathering place to connect with others and share memorable, meaningful moments. We’re a hub for discovering local music, art, and a lasting connection with our island community. And with stunning, front-row views of Waikiki Beach, we’re a place to reflect on the events of the day. And plan the adventures that lie ahead.

    Staff was wonderful!

    The staff made our stay! From the moment we checked in (8 of us) until we checked out! They made us feel so welcomed. We couldn’t have picked a better location. Loved getting up in the morning and walking across the street to see the sunrise. Everything we needed was right there.

    Great location & amenities - affordable place to stay!

    Let’s start by saying that if you’re looking for a luxury resort, this isn’t it. That being said, if you’re looking for a hotel that is literally across the street from the beach, has on-site restaurant choices, free beach chairs & umbrellas for your use, poolside drink & snack service, and is family-friendly this is a good choice. The hotel is older,so it’s got some quirks (sticky doors, particularly the sliders going to the balcony) but to be honest none were so annoying or bad that it put us off. I am knocking off one star because it could be a little cleaner (I’m looking at you, baseboards) and more updated, but in a building this age that gets as much use as it does its to be expected. The bed? We’re spoiled with our sleep number bed at home, so we always have a hard time sleeping when on vacation. The bed we had wasn’t the worst we’ve ever slept on - definitely more firm than we are used to though…but again, we’re spoiled by our own bed. You can choose daily or every-other-day maid service - this was a nice option if you don’t want to be bugged every day. Food…. The onsite restaurant, Tiki Bar & Grill, was great. Lots of options, but breakfast isn’t one of them. There is a breakfast spot on the top floor that has different options each day, but it’s very limited and in all honesty too expensive for what you get ($27.50/pp). We didn’t partake in this choice, so can’t speak to how good it is or isn’t. You also have to sign up the day before you want to go - no walk-ins. There is also a Crepe and Gelato place right downstairs, Glace’, that is very good. Nearby…There is a Starbucks right on the other side of the hotel (towards the zoo), along with a restaurant, Lulu’s, that offers breakfast and lunch/dinner items. It’s a casual place and very good. All in all, I would definitely stay here again due to the proximity to literally everything. We chose not to rent a car and are so glad we didn’t. We walked everywhere! It’s a great option for a family with kids, as the beach area across the street is right near the shallow lagoon section of the walls - no worry about your child being pulled into water too deep! Tour buses pick you up either right outside the hotel or just down the street - very convenient!

    Great Service and Location!

    We loved the location and service we experienced at The Twin Fin Hotel. Everyone was friendly and accommodating, and they checked-in daily with texts to see if anything was needed. Happy Hour at the restaurant was very good, and we highly recommend this hotel.
