This is a pleasant and well priced hotel a few minutes walk from the beach. Breakfast is basic but tasty, the Wifi works and the staff are very helpful. The rooms are a little on the small side for the US but that's hardly a deal breaker considering how nice everything else is.

The rooms are "compact" but fine for two average sized occupants.Bed was good,air conditioner OK and to my wifes delight you could open the window and get fresh air (as she prefers). The...

My wife and I spent 2 nights at Vive Hotel Waikiki and loved our stay. The room was small, but had all we needed, and the price and location were great. Access to beach gear a plus, and the breakfast was better than expected.

The staff is friendly and accommodating. We recommend that if you are going to rent a car do it through the hotel concierge. We called...

Excellent service (great breakfast, bread, coffee, fruits) location, but quiet small size room. But it didnt bother us much though, you won't stay at the hotel all day long. You will have so many things to do in HAWAII. :)
