Bamboo Waikiki Hotel, Honolulu HI Homes & Real Estate
Built in 1968, the Bamboo Waikiki Hotel is a 13-floor condotel housing 97 studio and 1-bedroom units. This condotel is located in an excellent spot in downtown Waikiki, situated less than a 3-minute walk away from the mega-popular Waikiki Beach and Kalakaua Avenue. Not to mention, being located near the center of Waikiki means you have better access to all of Waikiki's amazing food culture, which contributes to Bamboo Waikiki Hotel's popularity among visitors.
Bamboo Waikiki Hotel is also one of the few buildings on O'ahu that allows legal short-term vacation rentals.

Bamboo Waikiki Hotel provides a great opportunity for visitors to engage in downtown Waikiki nightlife and culture, with surrounding restaurants like Musubi Cafe Iyasume, Hy's Steak House, Maguro Spot, Me Bar-B-Que, and Blue Ocean Seafood & Steak, all within a few hundred feet of the building. Likewise, sitting one block away on the corner of Kuhio Avenue and Kanekapolei Street is an ABC Store, which provides fun tourist gifts and trinkets as well as vacation staples like sunscreen, water and snacks, and other daily necessities.
One of the most notable aspects of Bamboo Waikiki Hotel's location is its proximity to Waikiki Beach, which is less than a 3-minute walk away from the residence. Arguably the most popular and well-known beach in Hawai'i, Waikiki Beach is an immensely popular spot for surfing, swimming, sunbathing, spending time with friends and family, eating, and more. There are shaded cabanas for those who need a break from the intense Hawaiian sun, and there are vendors stationed around the street selling various snacks and drinks. Not to mention, the entirety of Kalakaua Avenue along Waikiki Beach is stationed with restaurants, cafés, and stores, which means visitors can easily take a break from the beach and grab something to eat or drink.
Kalakaua Avenue is also known for its wide array of shopping spots, as it is the main shopping strip in Waikiki. Kalakaua Avenue hosts a variety of designer stores, fast-fashion stores, and more, making it one of the most consistently crowded areas in Waikiki.
For those who are not interested in the extremely crowded daily nature of this street and general area, other outdoor activities are found Southeast of the main Waikiki area. These include the Honolulu Zoo, Kapi'olani Regional Park, and the Diamond Head Crater Hike, which are a 3-, 6-, and 12-minute drive away from Bamboo Waikiki Hotel respectively.
