My husband and I stayed 7 nights in December 2014. The room (1807) was small but was all that we needed. We had beach views, although they were obstructed by other hotels. The air-conditioning is loud as others have mentioned, and the traffic from below was also quite loud. Woke up a few times from ambulances or beeping on the... More

Great location, only two streets from the famous waikiki beach. The rooms are new and clean, but its REALLY small- the smallest " hotel" room that I have ever stayed actually. Service is good, warm and friendly but the part that is most annoying is the aircon that sounds like a boeing 747 in the room . Stayed 5 nights... More

Stayed for one night post cruise. The hotel lobby is well appointed. The staff are very accommodating. The room is very tiny. I bumped into the night stand exiting the bathroom. You can hear your traveling partner in the bathroom, the room is so small!! The bed linen I very thin and the bed mattress is soft. The air conditioner... More

We had planned on staying at the Vive Hotel for five nights based on previous reviews but after one night we cancelled our reservation and moved down the street. The deal breaker for us was there is really no where to hang out in this hotel -- no pool, no decks, no patio, no bar and the rooms are very... More

Before I get into the negatives, I do want to say this hotel definitely has some positive things going for it: #1: Customer Service. Every staff member was friendly, professional, and helpful. #2: Location. Only 3 blocks from the beach and easy access to dining and shopping. #3: Modern, updated decor. The lobby is beautifully decorated and the rooms have... More
