First class service all the way!!!

Posted Mar 21, 2015
Pros: Location, staff, cleanliness, breakfast
Cons: Sound proofing of the rooms
Location: Walking distance to Waikiki beach, shops and tons of restaurants
Wow!! The Vive has AMAZING staff, great free breakfast, small but adequate rooms and an amazing location close to everything in Waikiki. I cannot stress enough how amazing the staff is. From the amazing Valets to the wonderful lobby staff. Housecleaning kept our rooms spotless. If you are a light sleeper you may want to call ahead for a room up high away from the noise. We did call ahead and were given room 1003 right next to the bus stop. Buses come and go 24 hours a day and beep every time they let someone on/off. Also walls are thin so we could hear pretty much everything our neighbors were saying/doing. I did not ask for a room change as we were completely exhausted after a 18 hour day. A/C units are loud BUT if put on fan speed 3 they run all night non stop and drown out the outside noise. This made it possible for me and my husband to sleep. Breakfast was wonderful and a nice surprise. Fresh food everyday and wonderful pineapple juice. Food tasted great and we loved the blueberry bread. We were able to fill up every morning saving us the cost of breakfast. What makes this Hotel so wonderful is the staff. I have not one bad thing to say about anyone at this Hotel. Also the free beach towels and beach chairs were awesome!!! I will be returning to Waikiki and returning to the Vive!!!

View of the beach from your window!

Posted Mar 18, 2015
Pros: The distance from the beach and shops. The space in the Junior Suite. Beach towels and beach mats are provided. Fluffy pillows!
Cons: The air conditioning (less noisy). Slightly bigger tables for two seaters in the lounge area for breakfast.
Location: Close to Duke statue, the beach and shops. Eggs and Things for breakfast (<5 min walk). Bus stop right next to hotel. Trolley pick up at Duke statue.
Stayed in the Junior Suite and glad to because you get plenty of room. You get views of the ocean but it's a shame there's no balcony to relax on to enjoy it. If you're not early (anytime before 8.30), you might miss out on the good stuff with the continental breakfast - on the way down, saw a couple walking up each with 2 plates full of croissants only to find out there were none left when I got to breakfast. But theres options a short walk away if you decide to eat out for breakfast anyways. Staff are so friendly - you'll get a friendly "hello!" from them even if you don't need them. The beach is so close (less than 5 min walk) and is right near the Duke statue and the shops on Kalakaua Ave are just a bit further down too. We weren't looking to spend most of our time in our room so we were more than happy with our stay as we had plans to be at the beach, go shopping and so on.

Very impressed

Posted Mar 15, 2015
Staff were awesome, super helpful. I have to mention the cleaners, the two ladies that looked after our room were so friendly and caring. Room was very nice, super clean and bed was super comfortable. Air con was a little loud but nothing that stopped us from having a good snooze. We were on the 21st floor which was awesome very quiet. Breakfast was... ok ... nothing fab but gets the job done. Coffee and cold water are downstairs which was a nice touch. Overall I would stay here again 100% very Happy with everything. We were there for 10 days and it was awesome. THANKS GUYS AND GIRLS @ VIVE!!

Perfect. Clean, cozy, close to the beach!

Great service, knowledgable staff. I liked that they provided beach; towels, mats, and chairs and boogey boards! Great affordable food spots across the street, literally walking distance from everything!

Great location and friendly stuff!

Posted Mar 12, 2015
This hotel has a great location: it only takes two mins to walk to Waikiki Beach, and the bus stop is just in front of the hotel. The stuff is super nice! and the room is very neat and cleaned. The hotel is pretty new. In the hotel , they always have free coffee and water in th lobby. They also provide free breakfest. The room is a little small, but over all ,it's a nice hotle!

Nice Hotel.

Posted Mar 12, 2015
Pros: Friendly helpful staff, comfortable room/chair/bed. Clean bathroom, linens.
Cons: There was no screen on the window, which did open. The elevator was a bit loud and often sounded like it was struggling to go up and down.
Location: It was only about a 2 minute walk to the beach. The Zoo is less than 10 minutes away on foot. Transit right outside the front door.
Didn't spend much time in the hotel, just a place to sleep and put my stuff. The free breakfast was good. Not a lot of variety, but they had fresh fruits, pastries, juice and coffee.
