"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
"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
"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.

"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
We were out and about every day and the hotel had everything we needed. From valet, to small continental breakfast, to beach towels and other beach stuff, it was perfectly located maybe 200 hundred yards from the water.Genuine Expedia guest review
From the time I checked in to my departure all staff was very helpful and courteous, always pleasant,helpful with local information. I was quite impressed because the staff was young and very interested in assisting you. Many times young staff is not experienced or professional, not so at Vive. Clean updated rooms,great breakfasts,close to the beach,shopping, […] parking and other parts of the island . I would recommend the Vive to family and freinds. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful boutique hotel"
Friendly, helpful staff. The hotel was new, clean and tastefully decorated. Daily light breakfast fare of coffee, juice, fresh fruits including pineapple, papaya and pastries served in a very pleasant lobby. Rooms were clean and comfortable.The hotel is close to the beach and shopping. It was calm and quiet. Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, close to the beach."
The only minus is absence of a balcony. The breakfast includes fruits, juices, cakes.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overall a great stay"
We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of Vive. We arrived to a friendly and helpful staff and enjoyed our entire stay. My only complaint/word of advise to the hotel is to try to accommodate guests to different floors while construction is on going. My girlfriend and I didn't mind much because there was no nose at night and frankly we were barely […] there, but I heard another guest on our floor complain. Also the forced $25 per day valet fee is a little steep. And be prepared to pay because there is little to no street parking in that area. All in all though it was a great stay and Vive goes on my list of future potential revisits. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hospitality was excellent! They provided beach towels, beach chairs, matts, and boogie boards. We didn't have to pay for anything, it was part of the service. The hotel was only 2 blocks from the beach. The valet service was really good. A bit pricey, but nearby hotels were comparable. The best part was that on our last day, we requested a late […] checkout and they provided something better. We were able to leave our luggage in a storage room and when we were ready to leave to the airport, they provided a room similar to our room so would shower and freshen up all for free. The continental breakfast was okay. The fruit was delicious! The room is probably really small for most travelers, but we were only in our room at night, so there was no need for a bigger space. Again, the hospitality makes this place staying at again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Manhattan gem in Hawaii."
The hotel is very stylish that has the Manhattan look & feel. It was conveniently located near the beach & the shopping on Waikiki. The staff is excellent & was super helpful. When our flight was delayed for 7 hours, we were offered a courtesy room to shower after a day at the beach. Great value for your money.Genuine Expedia guest review
My wife and I absolutely loved our stay at Vibe Hotel Waikiki. It was new, clean and in a perfect location. The staff was the best we've ever experienced. I can't imagine any other hotel on Waikiki being better. Look no further and book with complete confidence. Vibe Hotel is the place to stay when visiting beautiful Hawaii. We didn't want to leave. […] When we go back, we will of course stay at the Vibe Hotel. Aloha and Mahalo. Sincerely, Robert B. Thomas and Jennifer A. Thomas Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It is a perfect hotel for waikiki!! 2 blocks from the beach, but in the middle of everything you need!! Lobby is very beautiful, rooms are not big, but has all that you need!! I would for sure book this again if we are coming back!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convient to Waikiki beach and all attractions"
My stay was excellent, staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean,services were good. Breakfast was good. I will recommend this hotel to anyone.Me and my wife had a great time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a great hotel about two blocks from Waikiki beach. The staff is very professional and friendly. We needed an early check in and a cab to the airport at 5:30 AM and they provided them without question. Didn't get to have their free breakfast, but other guests said that have great also. Only comment is to not be surprised at the size of the guest […] rooms, They are small, but the bed and pillows were fantastic. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful boutique hotel in a great location"
Stayed for 2 nights before starting our island hopping. The price of the hotel was significantly less than surrounding hotels of equal quality. The continental breakfast was fine for us. Valet parking was prompt, never waited for our car. The location was perfect. They also provide beach chairs and towels for a day at the beach a block away. Service […] was attentive. The only negative was the size of the rooms. They are small. I wouldn't want to spend a week in them but a couple of nights was fine. I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very solid hotel"
This hotel is great. I paid 170 a night for it when other hotels were 300ish. It is a 60 second walk from the beach and in an amazing location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Bed/Mattress was extremely uncomfortable. Very lumpy. The air conditioner unit was very noisy and the location of my room was very noisy. The lobby area was well decorated and designed. The continental breakfast was a nice touch. Overall the room was sad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One of the best hotels I've ever stayed at"
The hotel was over all amazing. I was kinda skeptical to book there at first since I had no previous knowledge of the hotel but am so glad I did. Complimentary breakfast was good and could sustain you through half you day if you ate enough. Staff was very helpful especially the concierge George. He helped me plan my trip and it all worked out perfectly. […] Close to everything you need in a place like Hawaii such as bars, shopping, beach, public transportation, etc... Definitely recommend to everyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"South Beach in Hawaii"
When we arrived at our hotel late Saturday night we were greated by super friendly hotel staff. The hotel lobby looks like it was transplanted strait from south beach Miami and I mean that in a good way. The modern contemporary design complemented by energetic music made the lobby and lounge area very inviting. The rooms are small. I knew this going […] in tho. Though small, the rooms are very nice and look brand new. I was worried about the beds because i sleep on a memory gel mattress that is amazing. The beds were very comfortable and i slept great. In short, The great atmosphere, proximity to everything, hotel staff, and great price more then make up for the lack if square feet. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Near beach and great place for Waikiki."
Very nice room. Good size bed and bathroom. Nothing really special yet clean and quiet. Wonderful staff that made the stay. Great morning Kona coffee and juice and pastries with fresh fruit. Every morning.Genuine Expedia guest review
Stopped here for a couple of nights before traveling to another island. Staff could not have been more accommodating -- very helpful and friendly. We were upgraded to a better room. Room quite spacious and modern. Superb location; lots of evening walking around Waikiki. Valet parking made having the car, a necessity, easy and cost $25/day. Helpful travel […] info from concierge.

"Great hotel, exceptional service"
Exceptional staff, that was the first thing. There is a $25 valet fee to park, but with complete in/out privileges and the guys always had the car there for us when we called down. Nice breakfast with loads of fresh fruit and pastries. We had a junior suite which was great, view of Waikiki beach, big comfy bed, huge shower. Plumbing in bathroom sink […] could use some help, but that was our only complaint. Really great stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small but clean and close to the action"
The rooms are a bit smaller but it's Waikiki so that's normal. It took us about 5 minutes to adjust to the size and find our comfort zone in spreading out our stuff for the week. The bed was comfortable, the tv was in a good spot and the bathroom had all the necessities. There is a free continental breakfast spread each morning. Coffee and water are […] available all day in the lounge. The small fridge was convenient for keeping cool drinks and Cheesecake Factory dessert leftovers. Walk a couple blocks and you are on the main beach at the Duke statue. Walk a couple blocks and you're at the grocery store. Plenty of restaurants nearby and the Kings Village (again 2 blocks away) has a farmers market 4 days a week--great fresh fruit! The buses stop right outside the hotel and they go to the most popular tourist venues. The staff was delightfully friendly and helpful. You can get towels, mats, chairs, etc on a first come basis. If you have a late flight, ask about the convenience room--you get an hour time slot to have a room to freshen up (or in my case repack because I bought too much).

"Over night stay"
Overall good. Close to beach, great staff. Very convenient. Smaller rooms, but besides that it has ana amzing view.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Modern hotel in very convenient location"
This is a nice hotel at an affordable rate. It is located on Kuhio Ave. which which parallels Kalakaua, the main waterfront street of Waikiki. It is a short block away from the beach, the road leading direct to the statue of the Duke, and the weekly free hula displays. Right outside the door is a bus stop for a lot of bus routes, and everyone should […] use Honolulu's wonderful The Bus to travel around fast and cheaply. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. A couple of nice touches, the loan of towels, boogie boards etc. to use at the beach, and a complimentary continental breakfast. While not very varied, it did offer lots of excellent fruit and pastries. Tea and coffee are on tap 24/7 in the lounge. If you want a bigger breakfast, it is a short 7 or 8 minute walk to the legendary Lulu's, opposite the Zoo, where you can get any breakfast you like, at very reasonable prices. We had no complaints, would certainly stay there again, and will mention it to anyone who wants a comfortable place to stay without all the glitter of the big-name hotels surrounding it (and without their whacking great charges too!)

"I love me some Hotel Vive!!! Best place for the $!"
We stayed 6 days and nights and everything was fantastic!! Free Wifi and free breakfast right near the beach! Free umbrellas, beach towels and boogie boards and not to mention a free courtesy room for an hour if you have a late night flight! I'd recommend this place to anyone and everyone!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Newly remodeled hotel close to beach."
We really enjoyed our stay at Vive. The staff were all excellent, friendly, helpful, etc. The room was small, but plenty big enough for two people. Who stays in their room for long in Waikiki? We would gladly stay there in the future.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Diamond off the beach"
Just three blocks from Waikiki, walking distance to Zoo and Aquarium. This Hotel has no frills but great value. Our continental breakfast each morning was delicious and the staff is FANTASTIC ! Bed was extrtemely comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Most friendly staff in Waikiki"
I have stayed all over this area on vacation and business. This hotel offers great location, service and pricing. The front desk and valet staff are especially nice. The rooms are very updated and modern. No frills on the amenities, but not needed if your here for work or the beach!...Will stay here every time. No need for double the rates and Waikiki […] beach only 2 blocks/2 min walk. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rooms are too small"
Vive just opened up in July, 2013 and is located where Uluniu intersects Kuhio in Waikiki. It is a short walk from the beach where the iconic Duke Kahanamoku statue is located. This is a European boutique style hotel. There are leather couches in the lobby, continental breakfast is served, and there is no pool. Although there is no restaurant or bar, […] you don't have to wait 15 minutes for a crowded elevator like the resort hotels either. The service was excellent. Robb at the front desk is da kine!!! He's super friendly, helpful, and gave good recs on dinner and nightlife. The remainder of the staff was also friendly and gave an Aloha spirit. Unfortunately, IMHO there are many downsides to the rooms. They are tiny for $179/night (Expedia): Two people would feel very cramped in the room. You basically walk into the room and nearly trip on the bed. In addition, there is no real closet, the air conditioner sticks out the window, and the bathroom is narrow. Additionally, one of my pillows really smelled, as though the pillow case was not changed. It also smelled on the second night. Lastly, there is no ocean view. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Loved the place, especially for the price and convenience. Only flaw was the fact that they didn't replace the windows in the rooms when they did the amazing renovation. Waikiki is generally noisy, so having new double pane windows would have made a big difference and probably save the hotel money as well, since the A/C is on non-stop. Would give it […] a 4.5 if I could, and I would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
the standard.rooms were very tiny. the pictures are deceiving. they did upgrade us and that room was goodGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, could be better"
We loved the beds. They were very comfortable. Pillows were great! Room was very small, the standard queen. You can upgrade I'm sure but we didn't wanna pay more and not get an ocean view. The remodel that was done is nice cosmetic stuff. The big thing that wasn't done... the windows. They are original, OLD, single layered windows. Super loud, we needed […] ear plugs. If your a super tight sleeper you'll be ok. Otherwise, you'll hear everything all night long. And the AC units are pretty tacky. In the windows.. Loud and they blow directly on you even if you change the direction. So you can't leave them on at night. It's way to loud. Those two were the BIG down side to the hotel room. Otherwise everything else was ok. If you shop around, you can find something for 15-25$ more a night and get a truly updated hotel with a peaceful stay and nice modern AC unit. But the customer service was very nice, free continental breakfast, coffee and water 24/7 was a plus. If you want a vacation and you cannot afford a better hotel. Stay at the vive. If you can dish out a couple more dollars. Get something newer.... Enjoy! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Pleasant hotel a few blocks to the beach. Previous reviews noted standard rooms were small so I booked a Junior Suite....would recommend this. Room was OK but certainly not plush....looked to be an older hotel that underwent a remodel. Rooms had window mounted AC but no heat...24 hour spread is 70-80 so you really don't need heat. Staff were pleasant […] & helpful. Lobby was quite nice with two computers for guest use. Complimentary breakfast was so-so.........fruit, rolls & coffee. OK for us but others may want more. Can offer no real critical comments. There was no pool and that may be an issue for some. Yes, we would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean but tiny room"
It's a clean and remodeled hotel in the central of Waikiki. But the room was very small without a balcony. The breakfast was just terrible. Pastries, fruits, pineapple juice, and coffee are all the items offerd as breakfast, even without eggs.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was very small as indicated in many reviews. Because this is a renovated hotel there is no central air...only the air conditioner in the window (it needed to run constantly to keep up). We had a corner room so that gave us views of both the ocean and the city which was nice. Hotel is new and very clean. Decorated well if you like a contemporary […] feel. Nice continental breakfast in the morning. Not thrilled about the $25 parking fee, but that seems standard for Waikiki. Close to the beach and shopping. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel with many extra perks"
We stayed at this hotel for a week over New Years and would highly recommend it. The hotel is nothing super fancy but had everything you could want for a beach stay: 1. 5 minute walk to the beach 2. free beach towels, beach chairs and beach mats bring with you to the beach and return when you get back 3. A courtesy room if you want to go to the beach […] before your flight and need to freshen up but you already needed to check out of your room 4. Umbrellas if it is raining 5. wine openers to borrow Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great location and service, small rooms."
If you're traveling to HNL on business or some other professional event, this hotel is perfect. Very easy to get into and out of. It's right in the heart of Waikiki, the service was terrific, rooms were updated and spotless. My room however was small, very small. Not a place to spend 10 days on vacation, but it was perfect for my 3 nights working around […] the city. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I have stayed at almost ever hotel in Waikiki over a 12 year period, this hotel by far was the smallest room I have ever had it was almost funny when I opened the door and I had a corner unit. It was so small that the closet was the bathroom(not making this up), website pics were totally misleading the price was WAY OVER PRICED hotel had absolutely […] no amenities. You would be better off staying anywere but Hotel VIVE I was alone I could not even imagine if you had a family lol actually your rental car would have more room, oh and its 25 dollars a day to park there.

Enjoyed my stay at the Vive Hotel Waikiki. The location is excellent, 2 blocks to the beach, and a short walk to all there is in Waikiki.This is a newly renovated hotel and the A/C worked great. The WiFi worked great in my room and was fast. We used the Vive Hotel boogie board, towels and mats at the beach. All staff members were wonderful, very friendly […] and helpful. Daniel at the front desk wished me a Happy Birthday when we checked in so sweet of him.The breakfast at the Vive Hotel Waikiki was a nice treat of fresh fruit, fresh juice, selections of breads and rolls, tea and coffee.
