"Loved the vibe at the Vive!"
Had a wonderful five night stay. Loved the location, contemporary ambience, and scenic view from the 21st floor. Easy access to sightseeing activities, beach strolling, and just relaxing. Special shout out to KC of the concierge desk who was very friendly and super helpful with tour arrangements and helping us get our bearings in the initial part.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very small room, older hotel that has been given a modern appearance...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Stay in Waikiki"
It's no Omni San Francisco, but this is an excellent hotel in the Waikiki area (I'm only giving it a 4 because it's not the best I've ever stayed at). It's not in the middle of the high-end stores area of Waikiki, but that is just a short walk away. The beach is also a straight shot right out of the front door of the hotel and this place gives you beach […] gear to use. Housekeeping and maintenance is outstanding and very responsive; they would come within minutes. The valet is mandatory if you're parking but also very quick; twenty five dollars a day with unlimited in/out. Fridge and safe in room; microwave downstairs. Rooms are quiet but AC is a low roar. I would stay here again if on a budget (and I usually am) as it's a great home base to explore Oahu. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location. great hotel."
The hotel is located conveniently close to Waikiki. The hotel has a very cool vibe and the breakfast is nice. I wish they provided yogurt or eggs with the breakfast. Our room was alittle bit noisy in the mornings with noise coming from the street. The a/c was alittle bit noisy too. I think the hotel deserves the high ratings it has been receiving.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very small room"
Very clean room. The staffs are all friendly. But the room is very small not good for couple.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Only wish the room could be a bit larger, otherwise wonderful experienceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were very pleased with the Vive Hotel. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Free breakfast was a bonus with lots of fresh fruit and breads. There is also a large lounge area where they serve breakfast. Valet parking is right on site and we found it to be quick and efficient. The location is a short walk to the beach and the hotel provides […] beach chairs, mats, towels and boogie boards. The rooms are small as stated on their website, but they are set up well with storage areas for your belongings. The rooms were very clean with the exception of what appeared to be dust or dirt on the floors along the baseboards, but on closer look I found that it was probably residue from carpet glue instead. We were unexpectantly upgraded to an ocean view room which was appreciated. - Thanks Vive! We would certainly stay again if we return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect no frills hotel"
This was a business trip so extremely teeny tiny room with no pool or jacuzzi was fine. 2 blocks to Waikiki beach so I was there every day. great neighborhood. for business be away no drawers and no closet. 2 hangers for a towel hook is all you will have. oh under the bed small drawer. staff amazing. location perfect. great for quick business tripGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Housekeeping did a lousy job on cleaning our room. And left a soiled blanket on top if our clothesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Central to Oahu and 1 block to beach and shopping"
Friendly staff, easy access to transportation, small rooms but comfortable bed, lots of places to eat and shop after time on the beachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great modern hotel with wonderful staff"
Really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were a bit small, but very comfortable. The staff is amazing and I really enjoyed the fresh fruit served during the complimentary breakfasts. The location was the primary reason we chose this hotel, but other things, like the free towel service, were wonderful bonuses.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love the location and views I had."
the air conditioner could be a bit more quiet. The daily continental breakfast was. Awesome.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel completely met my expectations and then some. The entire staff was very courteous and professional. I only gave it 3 stars on condition of hotel because we had continuous problems with the door access keys and a few issues inside bathroom. The included breakfast was fresh and tasty everyday, free wifi was nice and the free beach gear was […] a pleasant surprise. There is also a bus stop nearly in front of hotel so getting everywhere was a cinch,by the way, my iphone told me what bus number to take. We stayed 7 nights and I plan to stay another 7 in the future. Bravo Vive! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great service close to the beach"
We really enjoyed our stay at the Vive Hotel due to the friendly and helpful staff. Our room was small but very clean, and included a mini fridge. Great location, just a short walk to the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I loved Vive! I was there for a business tradeshow and we extended our stay for our anniversary and this hotel was just great! Great location (two blocks from beautiful Waikiki Beach and shopping mall), I felt very safe walking around so it was a good neighborhood, the service was amazing (they gave great dinner recommendations, valet […] was prompt and reasonably priced since you pay the same at any other hotel in the area to park your car yourself), rooms were small but very clean, the bed was super comfy, and we even had robes included in the room! I have nothing negative to say about this great hotel, I definitely plan on staying there again my next trip into Honolulu! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Modern hotel in paradise"
Beautiful decor! The staff was so polite and helpful. Greeted at door with tropical juice and cold towels to cool off... They took our bags up for us while we checked in. Complimentary breakfast buffet was very filling we ate at hotel every morning. Complimentary towels, beach mats, chairs, boogie boards!!! It was a very short walk to beach it only […] takes 2 minutes. We were so pleased with the overall experience the staff definitely made us feel like we were in paradise!

"Great good surprise in Waikiki"
We had a great good surprise in our first trip to Hawaii. Vive Waikiki hotel is amazing: facilities, staff, location, etc....Genuine Expedia guest review
"Walking distance to the beach!"
The hotel is very contemporary/modern and the staff was very courteous, polite and friendly. The Standard Room, which I stayed in, was definitely meant for two people. In other words, it's on the smallish side. With that said, I'd certainly stay at the Vive again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel - recent complete renovation"
It was a great experience - the location is just great in the center of Waikiki. The hotel is close to everything - the beach (3 mins walking), bus stop to Diamond head (bus #2) and Makittii buffet restaurant ($20/person dinner with great food variety). The hotel is new, very fresh and look very modern. The lobby is nicely decorated, there is good music […] playing during the breakfast and whole day through. The breakfast is pretty light but good enough - croissants, local buns and cakes of 3-4 different kinds, tropical fruits (melon, watermeon, pineapple, oranges), pineapple juice, iced water, tea and coffee. Tea and coffe served all day long. Rooms are renovated and look modern and new. The size of the rooms and bathrooms is pretty small (250 square feet in total) but it didn't bother us at all. They have queen rooms of the same size - no matter if they face the ocean or a street. The conditioner was a bit loud but again - didn't bother us too much. Street noise is almost negligible. There is no swimming pool - having this beautiful ocean - NO regrets at all. Parking is $25/day but you can always park overnight on Kalakaua Ave ocean side - where Monsarrat Ave starts onwards (about 10 minutes walking from the hotel). There is another public parking for $20/day or $12/night at the crossing of Kuhio Ave and Kaiulani Ave (1 minute walking from the hotel). Diamon Head trip is worth spending half a day - go there at 3pm and you won't see huge crowds of tourists. Take sunscreen! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION"
If you are use to staying in a hotel like the Hyatt, Sheraton or Marriott, this may not be the hotel for you. Normally we do stay in these sorts of hotels, but our trip this past week to Honolulu was sort of a last minute decision and we tried to keep cost down. Hotel could not be better situated. Literally two blocks from the beach and the best beach […] area. Close to all the shopping and close to all sorts of wonderful restaurants. Room was small, but comfortable. Bathroom is extremely small, so if you are someone who needs lots of bathroom space, this hotel may be a problem. We were gone at least 10 hours a day so the room wasn't that important, but it had everything you could need. The staff was more than friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us. Perks: free breakfast everyday. Consist of pastries, toast, fruit and coffee. Quite nice. They also offer free beach towels, mats , boogie boards and beach chairs DAILY. No extra charge. Every day after being at the beach we came back, showered and changed and were back on the strip with all the other tourists having dinner, shopping and just enjoying our stay. We highly recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"It was all that we needed for our stay."
It was a small room, but all we did was sleep there, and the bed was larger than our double bed at home! It had a refrig, and we saved $ by having a few meals at the room, I used the microwave and toaster oven in the lobby. The breakfast was very tasty,. but I will say that there was no protein. (even a glass of milk would have been good). But the fresh […] fruit and danishes were FRESH and tasty. The free use of the beach towels and mats, was good. The staff including the cleaning people were very nice. Free Wi fi was nice. VERY clean, no problems. There was also a safe in the room, which was nice. We also used the free courtesy room the last day (for one hour you can have a room after check out). We used this to freshen up, and re pack before heading back to the the airport, as we had a 9pm flight, and check out is noon. They also stored our luggage for us. If in Hawaii again, we would most likely go back to same hotel. No pool, but we went to the beach! Close walking distance to beach and shops, car rentals, and bike rentals. Not on the beach, (not a good beach view from the room)... but again, if we wanted to see the beach, we went there! We mostly came back to the room to sleep! Quiet, and no air conditioner problems.

The Vive Hotel doesn't have the beachfront views that people want but it's only 1 block away from the beach. Great hotel with an awesome staff that was there for you at your service. Free fast WiFi, and every morning for breakfast there was plenty of fresh fruit, pineapple juice, icy water with lemon, bread, and coffee. The room was a bit on the small […] side but was well kept and clean. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"My third business trip to the islands."
I always have a great time when in Hawaii. This was my first time in this particular hotel, but with the location you can't go wrong. You can actually walk to most venues. Not a bad place to work, then there's plenty of play to do all day everyday! I will mostly likely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value for Waikiki"
Vive Waikiki provides good value and outstanding service. Rooms are small, but very well maintained and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. I would not hesitate to stay here again and would recommend it to anyone who is traveling to Waikiki.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I thought the hotel was very good for the price. The Surrounding area was not that great, but not horrible. The breakfast in the morning was very good. the room was small, but very clean and I enjoyed the free wifi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I loved their complimentary breakfast! They served unlimited fruits, pastries and non-carbonated beverages (teas, orange juice, and coffee) from 7-9:30 am. Everything is close to the waikiki beach, restaurants and shopping centers. Very friendly staff. Great hotel for people who just wants to explore Oahu.Genuine Expedia guest review
"This hotel is great..."
I was not sure about this hotel but it turned out so well. The staff was great and took great care with the guests. It is central to the area. The best feature for me was being very close to the Diamond Head crater. Rode my bike there every day nearly. The staff was laid back and friendly. Upon arrival you are provided complimentary juice and a cold […] towel to revive you from your travels. There are few hotels that do anything like this anymore. The morning continental breakfast was a good start. The fresh fruit especially the pineapple was great. I don't think you can go wrong staying here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Although I gave vive a 3 star this place is really nice to stay for its friendliness, clean lounge, and modern appeal. The only thing that it lacked was a pool, bar, fitness room, spa, and free parking. If you're looking for an adventurous stay in hawaii, this is perfect. If you're looking to rest then I wouldn't recommend it for you.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good Service - Small Room"
The service was outstanding. All the people were very friendly and helpful. Just by the way we were greeted we thought this was going to be an amazing hotel. The room was very small with only one bed. One of us had to sleep on the floor. The bathroom as well is quite small. All in all for the price I paid, I was disappointed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice boutique hotel close to the beach."
Hotel staff very friendly. Hotel was close to the beach and Waikiki shopping life. Would recommend for those who need a solid place to sleep and come back to while having a lot of outdoor/touristy activities,Genuine Expedia guest review
"Satisfied stay in this Hotel"
I don't usually write reviews, but with this hotel, I didn't want to miss the opportunity to express our satisfaction, clean rooms and surroundings, nice continental breakfast which includes tropical fruits; all personnel are very friendly and helpful. Hotel is so close to the beach, that takes only about 2 minutes walking and they provide you with […] towel, chairs, boogie boards or matts if you need to, and last but not least, they hold our baggage after checked out, while we spend the rest of the day at the beach, since our flight was until 10:00 pm and provided us with one hour complimentary guess room for us to take a shower and change our cloths before the airport shuttle arrived, you just need to reserve it the day before. I will recommend this hotel to my friends and family Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, super employees"
Very personable, helpful, and competent staff. Great location. The room had a very nice bathroom and comfortable bed, nice large screen TV. The closet was abysmally small, and there were no drawers in which to store clothing. The appearance is modern but spare to the point of bleakness. The rooms use window air conditioning units, which are very loud […] but at least drown out street noise. The hotel is recently opened; perhaps over time the furnishings can be upgraded.

"A nice hotel close to the beach and Volcano."
We had a large room (a junior suit) with an ocean view which was very nice, but it came with 2 A/C noisy units in the windows. We were tired enough and jet lagged so they did not disturb us as much as we first feared. The shower and bathroom areas were spacious which was very nice. There was only one shelf in the closet and two drawers and very few […] hangers, but this was again something we were bothered with only when we unpacked. Once we settled in and found some ways of storing our things (the drawers were large and the closet and bathroom large enough to allow for some creativity with the storing) it seemed less of an issue. Relative to some other hotels (Hilton and such) it seemed very scarce though. The breakfast was great, it had about 4 types of fruit daily, which I enjoyed very much, also some pastries and muffins, my husband liked those. It is one block away from the beach and 1 hour run around Diamond Head which I liked to do in the mornings, so for us it was a perfect location. So all in all, a good hotel for us, I would probably be happy to go there again, mainly for the availability of the fresh fruit in the morning and the location, and for being a bit less pricey that, say, the Hilton next door.

"Nice modern hotel near the beach"
Great stay! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were small but they were clean and worked for us. The lobby was very modern and nice. They provide beach mats and towels for the beach and a daily continental breakfast with a variety of fresh fruits. I would definitely stay there again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, close to beach"
The hotel staff was curtious, the lobby was clean and we enjoyed the ameneties. However, the room was very small. Not enough space to put all of our luggage for the week. The bathroom was also very small with little space to keep our toiletries. The air conditioning unit was very small and each time we walked in the room it felt humid.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Modern hotel in a great location"

"great for our one-night stay"
It was a relaxing stay--the staff was very friendly and helpful. They did the best they could to satisfy our room requests (top floor, not near the elevator). We weren't on the top floor, but we couldn't hear anyone above us, and we could not hear the elevator, either. It wasn't hard to find, though the parking was a little difficult to figure out. […] They have valet parking only--for a fee--but the valet was really nice and kindly got our car for us when we went out again shortly after our arrival. My husband claimed the mattress wasn't the best--he could feel when I moved at night--and that there were some tiny flying insects coming in by the air conditioner, but I didn't notice either. Overall, a good stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendliness of the Staff"
The staff was very friendly and treated the guests very well. Everyone went out of their way to ensure that the guests had an enjoyable time. The people working at the valet parking were also very friendly and went out of their way to make sure that we could get our vehicle quickly and they helped maximize our experience. In particular, Cody was extremely […] polite, friendly and literally ran upstairs to get our rental car. We were very impressed by the staff's ability to convey the feeling of wanting to help us. Also, the breakfasts were always consisting of fresh fruit and baked items with enough variety to make eating there enjoyable. The location is excellent because it is just a short walk to Waikiki beach and to shopping centers. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wow! Now that's service."
My husband and I stayed at the Vive Hotel for our honeymoon in May 2014. The BEST service in the world! Every single staff member was courteous and went out of their way to be hospitable. The hotel is beautiful and very close to the beach. We had an ocean view room, which was wonderful. The room was beautiful, but a little small, but who spends time […] in their room on vacation. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that enjoys GREAT service in a beautiful hotel that's close to everything. Also, use the concierge for towels, mats, boggie boards, rentals, tours, etc. They handle everything and will give you great advice. Everybody on the street will try to tell you otherwise, but they're the ones selling something. Jacqueline and George are awesome, as is ALL the staff at the Vive.

From the time I checked in to my departure all staff was very helpful and courteous, always pleasant,helpful with local information.
