Excellent location, people are so friendly, complementary breakfast was more than complementary and delicious. I appreciated the beach mats, umbrellas, chairs and beach towels that we could borrow to go to the beach. And super friendly and excellent valet parking service.

Hotel's Favourite
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!

This hotel is in a great location! Walking distance to Waikiki Beach and near many local shops and food shacks. Staff made me feel very welcomed and helpful with recommendations / things to do during my stay. I would absolutely come back to this hotel during my next trip to Oahu.

I stayed at Vive Hotel years ago with my husband. We wanted to come back with our two kids and our nephew. We couldn't get a room for five, but booked the family room (two adjoining rooms). I called and asked if we would be allowed to have a fifth person as the website said only four. They were really helpful and said they would provide extra bedding and towels for us. They even sent an email confirming. The service was amazing. Unfortunately we had to cancel our trip to Vive. I am really impressed with how good they were about canceling our reservation. They did it immediately with no questions asked and I really appreciate this. We had a great experience here years ago, and now a great experience booking and canceling(unfortunately) . Their service is impeccable. I wish I could have this experience at other hotels.

They say location is important and Vive is great. Out the front door and a few minutes walk and you're on the beach or surrounded by restaurants, or both. The room, bed, pillows and shower were good, but not large. There was no balcony and the windows did not open. The staff respected Covid precautions. When we arrived the staff at the front desk gave us a brief update on recent changes in Hawaii (such as the card used on buses) and local safety. This was much appreciated and certainly influenced some of our decisions during the trip.

Convenient location to beach, shops and eateries. Less busy and quieter than main street hotels. Employees are accommodating and helpful. Buffet breakfast is good and delicious with lots of varieties to choose from and fresh fruits are so good. All day water, coffee/tea station is also appreciated and the lobby/sitting area provides a respite from a busy day of shopping, touring and walking. Wish to see recycling bin in room and food station. Individual air con is noisy. Overall, good value for a comfortable stay.

Great location! The only complain i had was a loud noise from the air conditioner unit but I eventually got used to it. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet with many fresh fruits to choose from. The beach chairs, umbrellas, and the boogie board are also a big plus.
