Great Location and Basic Needs met

Posted Apr 15, 2017
This hotel is a 3 blocks walk to Kuhio Beach Park and the location is super convenient. Rooms are on the small side but everything you need is there. I like the modern feel. Housekeeping was fine for me, clean everyday and no critters. The air conditioner was a bit noisy and I would turn it off at night to sleep. If you're looking for breakfast of bacon and eggs youre going to be disappointed. But they have a good selection of muffins and buns with some meat inside. Great selection of fruits and coffee is always available. The plus is no resort fee and beach gear like chairs bamboo mats and towels always provided at the concierge

Great location at reasonable price

Posted Apr 14, 2017
Hotel is literally 5 minutes from Waikiki beach. Close to main shopping drag. Hotel has everything one needs including breakfast and beach necessities. The room was small but clean. The only drawback is the $25 per day valet parking.

awesome boutique hotel

Less than five minutes from the beach. Friendly hard working hotel staff. Hotel was clean and came with breakfast which was a good start to the day. Free beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and beach mats were great. Can't go wrong for the price!

It is only through feedback such as yours that we are able to maintain and indeed, where necessary, improve upon the service that we provide to our valued guests. I was very disappointed to read of your experience during your stay with us.

Despite the shortcoming, we hope your visit here on Oahu was a fun filled memorable time. Thank you again. Kind regards, -Daniel S.

Stay here!!

Posted Mar 27, 2017
Pros: The aloha of the staff- warm, friendly and happy!
Cons: The in room air conditioner can be a bit loud at times.
Location: Perfect location steps away from Waikiki beach but on a quieter street away from the crowds. Easy to get to art museums, downtown, shops and beaches.
Greeted at check in by truly friendly staff with a glass of juice and cool, Hawaiian scented hand towels! Very clean room available before check in time was much appreciated by "red eyed" travelers. Small, quiet boutique hotel 2 blocks from the beach within easy walk to all the "famous" places on Waikiki and excellent restaurants and great "local" eateries. The continental breakfast, included, features lots of fresh fruit, delicious bread for toast, and a changing variety of muffins, traditional Hawaiian rolls and other pastries and delicious coffee or tea. (Coffee and tea always available). The entire staff is friendly and happy, greeting you each time you enter or leave the hotel. Free towels, beach chairs and mats and boogie boards always available to use. Concierge staff is friendly and very helpful. Bus stop right in front of the hotel with buses to anyplace in the city and many places on the island if you don't want to be part of a tour or rent a car. We would return to this delightful hotel anytime!

Great location!

Posted Mar 25, 2017
This hotel is in a great location. I certainly wouldn't give it as high of a rating as others have. The pictures on line were very deceiving. The lobby looks really modern but once you get to the rooms, quite a different experience. The rooms are extremely small, the bathroom in the room I stayed was quite dingy. The front staff and concierge were wonderful; friendly, approachable and helpful. The breakfast was great and the coffee was fabulous. I was not as impressed by housekeeping staff. I stayed for 10 days, and as my stay went on, the housekeeping services continued to become more and more minimal. Fewer towels, only left toiletries every 2-3 days and one day completely left the room without toilet paper. When I noticed it late that evening as I had been out all day, I called and still didn't get any. Thankfully there was a box of Kleenex in the room. They also didn't spend much time cleaning or tidying rooms. I don't think the bathroom floor was cleaned once my entire stay as you could tell from water spots. I also know there tends to be bugs in Hawaii, but finding large cockroaches in the bathroom was a little unsettling.

Hi, Thank you for writing a review about your experience at Vive Hotel Waikiki. It's unfortunate to see that you found the room to be smaller than you anticipated, however these rooms are found to be priced as a good value for the money while providing you the basic amenities you would need for a good night's rest between outings for the day. We would also like to extend our sincere apologies in regards to the unwanted pests during your stay. Despite these drawbacks, we hope that this did not heavily impact your total experience while on vacation here on Oahu. Nonetheless, we are happy to read that you enjoyed our location. We do hope that you give our hotel another try one day. Best Regards, -Vive Hotel Management
