Vom 22. bis 27. Mai 2011 war ich auf Oahu in Waikiki; Waikiki Gateway Hotel, mit 2 Tage Big Island am 25. und 26. Mai.
Das Hotel ist etwas ueberholt, aber die Hotel Angestellten waren stets freundlich und kuemmerten sich um mich sehr. Das Hotel hat 16. Etagen. Die ersten Naechte hatte ich ein Zimmer auf der 12. Etage mit Seitenblick auf das Meer. Fuer die letzte Nacht hatte ich ein Zimmer in der 16. Etage Penthouse mit besserem Blick auf das Meer, groesses Zimmer und einen sehr grossen Balkon mit Liegen.
Das Hotel ist gut gelegen. Der Strand war nur einen kurzen Lauf entfernt, die Bushaltestelle fuer Busse und fuer die Trolleys gleich vor dem Hotel und die Einkaufs- und Restaurantmeile gleich um die Ecke. Der Flughafen ist knapp 30 Minuten entfernt.
I have stayed on Oahu in Waikiki at the Gateway Hotel from May 22 to May 27, 2011 with two days inbetween on Big Island (25th/26th).
The hotel is kinda old, but the employees were really caring. The hotel has 16 floors and I was on the 12th for the first nights. For the last night I moved to the 16th floor Penthouse with a bigger room, nice view of the town and sea and a big balcony with sunloungers.
The hotel is in a nice neighborhood with a short walk to the beach, having the bus stop for also the trolleys right in the front, restaurants and shops just around the corner. The Honolulu Airport is like 30 minutes away.
