Excellent location

This hotel was a great find. Only a 2 minute walk to the beach and all amenities. Breakfast was good, rooms although small are clean and tidy and staff really helpful especially When they took time directing us to a ‘safe' new and clean laundrette which was only 2 blocks away. Only disappointment was the $30 per day car park fee for guests which soon mounted up. We have travelled 4 of the Hawaiian islands and this is the only one with a car park charge. Would recommend for a comfortable stay

Stayed during Halloween day through weekend

Location was good if you wanted to hang out Waikiki. My sister and I wanted to do staycation but staying closer to Waikiki for Halloween. Room was decent size for just a party of 2, just city view but our room was facing the streets and other buildings. Can see a glimpse of the beach but mostly just buildings and busy streets. It gets VERY noisy at night, even not on Halloween night with the partying and people hollering. We stayed on 5th floor, think highest is 6th? Got woken up by large trucks cleaning the streets between 4-5am, sirens and car roaring down the streets with their engines and then occasional drinkards screaming. Not very ideal if you have kids or want true peace and quiet, maybe opt for room that isn't city viewing or beach viewing because to be honest unless you're stuck indoor all day, beach or city or none wouldn't matter. It's the quality of sleep that matters the most when you're on vacation to rejuvenate for the next day. Pillows and beds were definitely lacking, I meant in terms of pillows x 2 stacked were still laid flat against neck and it just stumps down instead of providing support. Bed was a bit too soft too, also sinks down on lower back. If you're someone with lower back issue, this may not be the place for you. We're both in our late 20s weighing mostly close to mid 150s so If we experienced back problems and we didn't trip or fall or went on excessive hiking trips that predispose our backs for back pain. Bathroom is too small! Enough space for only one person to sit on toilet and get up, cannot have one on toilet and one showering or getting in and out to grab stuff/use mirror. There is also no FAN inside bathroom, so be prepared for your own sake and others because other than A/C, that is a lack of ventilation to air out room/toilet. Only thing plus is breakfast bar with hot food and pastries and fresh fruits! 24 hour access to coffee and tea but they do have juice bar and hardbroiled eggs daily not including hot food with egg omelette and sausages and bacon. They do have board games and card games in the main sitting area so that is also nice If you ended the night early and didn't want to see just yet while enjoying a cup of tea. Free beach towels and beach chairs etc are nice also. If you're a Hawaii's resident you also can use kamaaina discount to waive parking, so free parking daily which is the #1 reason why we chose Vive. It's my second time returning to this hotel

Nice place for the price

My niece & I stayed at Vive Waikiki. It was a nice hotel for the size. Rooms were small, but clean & comfortable. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast were pretty good. It was close to the beach, & was handy to have beach towels, chairs, etc. available to us. I also appreciated that they had a hospitality room available on the day I left, so even though I had checked out, they stored my luggage, then allowed us to use the hospitality room to clean up & rest before going to the airport

Boutique Hotel in Waikiki

Convenient location for The Bus and the beach. Recommend junior suite ocean view room. Good selection of fresh fruit, pastries, eggs, bacon, sausage and toast for breakfast. Lots of coffee, tea and purified water available at all times. A nice feature provided by the hotel is live musical entertainment twice a week. Hotel provides free use of all beach gear for guests. All the staff were super friendly and helpful. We appreciated the recognition on our Halloween Birthdays

High praise for the comfort and the staff at Vive Wai-ki-ki !

This was the 3rd or 4th time I have been to the Hotel Vive Waikiki. Each stay seems even better than the last---if that were possible ! This time my room was spacious, the breakfasts better than ever, the staff always cheerful and professional. I am very happy to recommend the Hotel to friends who need a rerst in their travels between Australia and North America. And I tell them, "Even if you've been to Hawaii before, and seen the sights, do include a stop over again, just to rest at the Hotel Vive Waikiki." A special thanks goes to Alex, who processed my application for a room, at a time when telephone contacts from Michigan were interrupted. See you again in October or November of 2020
