Stayed here for a few days . Superb staff , a genuine cut above most other places. Good location, and easy access to the beach. Noise free throughout the hotel as there is nothing on one side of the hotel . Good restaurants nearby with plenty of ABC stores and souvenir shops really close as are the guys renting cars... More

I travelled recently to Hawaii on business and on the advice of the Hawaiian Airlines sales team I booked to stay with Vive Hotel Hawaii. Thank you Hawaiian Airlines - GREAT advice. The easy taxi ride delivered us directly from the airport to level 2 at the Vive Hotel Waikiki - and we checked in and were in our rooms,... More

My husband & I stayed here for several days before taking our cruise. The place is spotless. Yes the room is small but it is certainly good enough. As long as the room is clean & comfortable that then is all that we needed. The breakfast is plenty: you have fruits, breads & pastries etc. It was good, fresh &... More

We stayed there on our way to New Zealand and on our return from New Zealand. It was close to every thing. Beach ,shopping and restaurants. The rooms are small but clean. One of the positives was the complimentary room. Each of our flights out of Honolulu were evening flights. Check out was 11AM, so we would have about 8-9... More

We booked through their hotel a regular room and when we got there they upgraded us to a Junior Suite. The lobby looks great. Location is perfect walking distance to the beach. It doesn't have a pool but you are in Hawaii for the beaches. Very friendly staff. Room was great.

I suspect this hotel used to be the old Continental Surf Hotel which has undergone a major overhaul and been re-branded to Vive Hotel. First the positive...the hotel is in a great central location; the refurbishment modern and trendy; and facilities great e.g. the complimentary breakfast included, free WiFi (a must these days), complimentary guest computer and concierge. We were... More

All staff members were friendly. We were greeted with cold towels and juice upon check in. Rooms were really clean but on small side, but this was expected. Location is close to many restaurants, including Marukame Udon. Besides that, it was convenient eating the free breakfast there, and they had complimentary coffee all day. My husband accidentally left his watch... More

Wife and I were in Waikiki for a friend's wedding for 5 days. Since we been to Waikiki before, we decided to book a boutique hotel without ocean view or pool for a cheaper price. We were glad we chose Vive. Vive is located within a 7 minute walk from the center of Waikiki. To us the center of Waikiki... More

We stayed at Vive Hotel Waikiki in our July'14 trip to Hawaii. This is a good hotel but not outstanding. Expect small rooms with old (but clean) carpets - at least in the room we stayed. It is close to attractions, though. Just 5 minutes walk and you will be in Waikiki beach. A longer walk will get you to... More

Dear Peter K, Thank you for choosing Vive Hotel Waikiki for your recent travels to beautiful Oahu. We greatly appreciate that you took the time to comment about your recent stay with us. As mentioned in numerous reviews and our website, our standard rooms are rather on the cozier side. Parking in Waikiki is a premium, with this being said,... More

We stayed for a week early June and were more than happy. Yes everyone states that the room is small and it is. Its just a matter of getting yourself organised and putting away what you don't need with your suitcases in one corner and its not a problem at all. Our room is just a base and we are... More
