Great location and nice hotel

If you are looking for a comfortable and convenient hotel in Waikiki rather than a resort experience, this is a good choice. The hotel is in a great location for beach access and wandering around Waikiki. Clean and modern with a friendly staff and free breakfast. It does not have a pool or balconies in the room so this is really just a great base for operating from and not a resort

Great little gem

A great small boutique hotel in the middle of mega-resorts. A nice personal, intimate hotel experience. It is one block to Waikiki beach. We have stayed 2x there - and have stayed at the big resorts. There are no pools and no restaurants but a complimentary breakfast in a living room environment. There is no need to pay to be in a crowded resort in a crowded pool when the beautiful beaches and restaurants are all around you! For the price, you cannot beat this - nice rooms - small European style. The hotel provides beach chairs, umbrellas, towels etc. The staff is absolutely top-notch - they get to know you and really help make your vacation the best possible. Front desk staff is interested in how your day was and always at your service. Alex, Daisy, Amy, Victoria and the others were amazing. The concierge, KC, is outstanding- KC will help you plan your day no matter your interest. KC knows Oahu. Valet service efficient and courteous. Also loved the book library and board games! Thanks for a great stay. Mahalo

Excellent stay

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Clean rooms, Free breakfast, 5 min to the beach, outstanding staff. There are plenty of options for food around the area. There is also a bus stop right by the hotel and we enjoyed discovering the area walking around and using the bus. I highly recommend this hotel

VIVE

This hotel is very good however the airconditioners are small and noisy. The airconditioner that was in our room is right opposite the bed and we had to keep getting up and turning it off. It was also noisy. The breakfast is not huge but adequate and fruit is very good. The hotel is quite good for a budget hotel

The Vive needs more aloha

We've stayed at the Vive several times over the years, including for our wedding, and have loved the value and the warm hospitality we've received until this trip. It's still a great value and we appreciated the welcome back note and goodies in our room. But from the moment we arrived we could tell something was different. From the valet to the front desk the aloha sprit that made this hotel special was missing. No one was particularly rude, but we felt the lack of hospitality throughout our stay. Additionally, we could not configure the A/C unit to prevent it from blowing air on our faces and did not sleep well either. Some improvements include the addition of eggs and sausage to the complimentary breakfast and the papaya was impressively ripe every day. Overall the Vive is still a good value but we realized how important genuine customer service is to us and will likely stay somewhere else for our next trip
