Awesome location and friendly staff, rooms were clean and the tech interface made it easy to request items, schedule cleanings, etc. Annoyances were always small but many: incorrect flyers of events, insufficient replacement of shower items, blah continental breakfast with no variations, charge in room for bottled water. Again, if you don't care about those this was a great place...

We found our stay at Vive very nice and relaxing. Room was spacious and clean but with little wow-effect. Best feature of the hotel is definitely the friendly and helpful staff that set us right into vacation mood.

After an extensive search of other hotels in Waikiki (very expensive), and based on the recommendation of a family member, we stayed at Vive for 4 nights. We were very kindly upgraded to a partial oceanview on the 21st floor. The staff was professional and friendly. The room, although small, was adequate for the 2 of us for 4 nights...

Vive was a really good experience. Staff was fantastic, hotel was clean, fun and funky (in a good way). Decent breakfast selection in the morning (fruit and pastries, etc.). Location was perfect for walking to beach and other spots in the city. Room was a tiny bit small for the price, but if you have traveled outside of the US...

A modern and well presented property within walking distance of Waikiki Beach and all the shops and eateries. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel lobby is airy and clean, and able to be utilised when waiting for airport transportation. The room was clean and medium sized. The bed was comfortable and the room serviced to a high degree....

Got a warm welcome with a pineapple juice and fresh hand towel. The room was not very fancy and was small, as to be expected for a city hotel, but it was clean and convenient. All staff were friendly and helpful. Gave good local advice. The included breakfast was fresh fruit, breads, pastries and coffee, which was good enough for...

I am not sure how this hotel was so highly rated. Maybe it is based on reviews that were done after the initial renovation. I stayed in room 905 which had some issues. The bathroom sink did not drain well. The bathroom floor tile was worn. The bathtub was stained. The windows needed washing from the outside. Also, room 905...

Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Rooms comfortable, but on the small side, location was excellent for walking and bus. Only disappointment was no outside patio or deck. Excellent breakfast. Would stay again!

Great location, friendly customer service, updated and hip lobby, good value, so-so rooms. Over all I'm very happy with this hotel. Friendly greeting at the door, just two blocks from the beach, and lots of food/drink options around the hotel. Good breakfast included and 'extras' like umbrellas, beach mats, etc. The room was clean. the bathroom was updated (large shower)...

“Some room may have a section by the door for you to put your full-size luggage.”
  • The vanity is not useful. Water can splash everywhere if not careful
  • You can put your full size luggage here (if your room has it).
