Hotel's Favorite
Vive Hotel Waikiki exceeded my expectations. I solely based my booking on price and after reading a few reviews online. We booked an entire week and were a bit nervous that it wouldn’t be all that great. We were wrong! We were pleasantly surprised with how nice the hotel was. Starting with the complementary cold pineapple juice given to us at arrival. The check in process with quick and easy. They even asked us if we were celebrating a special occasion. We happen to be celebrating a late honeymoon and to our surprise we found a nice gift hanging from our room door the following day! I thought that was a nice touch on behalf of the hotel and staff. The hotel was really clean and nicely furnished. We booked a queen bed room which was perfect for 2 people. I really liked the retractable clothes hanger in the shower for you to hang wet clothes. I thought it was a clever idea. The bed was nice and comfortable. The lobby serves breakfast which was something that we were looking for in a hotel to save money on at least one meal a day. There are also a variety of board games and books in the lobby in case you have a rainy day. Another great amenity this hotel offers are beach chairs, beach umbrellas, body boards, beach towels and more for FREE if you book directly through their website. That’s a big saving compared to renting all that stuff each day and since the hotel is only a 3 minute walk to the beach it’s perfect! Now on to the staff! The staff is what really makes this place great! They are so friendly and made us feel right at home. From the front desk staff, Anderson, Bryson and another young man whose name I don’t remember to the valet staff, Arnel, Richard and Franklin, you guys were awesome! I can’t say enough good things about this hotel and the staff! Thank you you guys. We truly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again and will recommend this boutique hotel to all of our friends who plan to visit Waikiki. Keep up the great work!

Wish there were some options for people who can't have gluten, even if it's just potatoes or rice. So many bread options but none were gluten friendly. Other than that, great location and service and good value for money

I had a great time and overall experience at the hotel. The hotel staff was top notch and helped me whenever I needed assistance. This was my second time visiting Hawaii but my first time at the Vive Hotel. Next visit Hawaii again which will be soon I will be staying at the hotel once again but I will get a much bigger room. The room I stayed in was a bit small to myself and my girlfriend's liking but overall we loved everything about the hotel. The guests were fantastic as well. Can’t wait to get breakfast from the Vive once again. I will definitely be back to book my next stay.

Our party of four- two adults and two teenagers, stayed for a week. The 18-year-olds loved the ability to go anywhere on their own, either walking or by the convenient bus stop nearby. The hotel is spotless, staff is friendly and responsive and the location is perfect for the beach, restaurants, convenience stores and shopping. The adults appreciated the breakfast selections, osmotic water dispenser and lemon water available at all times. The rooms were quiet and adequate for our needs.

My family and I had a very great and decent stay at Vive Hotel Waikiki. Greatly appreciated the kind, friendly and approachable staff. Glad that the hotel was very close to tourist/shopping locations around Waikiki. Would definitely recommend to other friends and families. Will book again when planning to go back to Hawaii!

I had issues extending my stay but the staff helped sort out the issue when I checked in. You can borrow beach gear and the hotel staff is very knowledgeable about events in the area. The hotel is small but it's clean and the room is chic. The breakfast buffet had good options, two proteins, lots of fruit and carbs. The location is perfect since it's close to the beach and the bus stop. Also walking distance from the international market.

Great stay for a couple or on business. While vive isn’t the nicest hotel in Honolulu, its perfect for those who want to get out and do. Rooms are but small but the staff and accommodations more than make up for it. All the staff were great but particularly Arnel and Richard from valet were superb. You won’t be disappointed when booking this hotel especially if you’re an adventurist!

Rooms were small but okay for two people. Our pillows were hard and lumpy - hurt my neck. Not sure if it was just my room’s pillows or that’s how all the rooms were. Besides that, the hotel was great! Super friendly and helpful staff, the breakfast was good each morning, and the room was very clean. Would stay here again.
