This was our first trip to Hawaii, and Vive Hotel was amazing :) We had a great view, and the service was amazing! The breakfast was simple and easy with fresh fruit and juice. You are just about right in the middle of everything. A simple walk to Waikiki Beach. Local restaurants and food trucks all around the hotel make for great experiences in trying local foods.

Hotel's Favourite
Decided to book a staycation with my girlfriend at Vive and was not disappointed with the Musician Suite! The standouts for us were the amenities and amazing staff! Highlights included: -THE PINEAPPLE JUICE at check-in!!! -free breakfast which is rare in Waikiki (loved the blueberry bread 😍) -free beach gear (towels, mats, chairs, umbrella, and boogie boards) -quick and responsive staff -super comfy pillows and beds -excellent cleanliness in and outside the room -variety of food options nearby -cheap and convenient parking But perhaps the best thing about Vive is its unique style and "homey" feel. So many hotels are cookie cutter and streamlined. It's great to stay at a place with a personal touch backed up by professional staff! We feel re-VIVEd after our stay!

The VIVE Hotel Waikiki is the best hotel to stay at in Waikiki! Affordable, great location, and the best part of all was the staff. Bryson, Roger, Yoshi, and Daniel all were great hotel hosts who were very kind and respectful and ready to help in any way possible, even providing great suggestions on how to spend some quality time in Oahu. Arnell at the valet was extremely helpful and kind going above and beyond his duties as a valet. The healthy and filling breakfasts in the mornings and beautiful views of the sunsets from our room were bonuses. My girlfriend and I went to Oahu celebrate my birthday and the VIVE Hotel Waikiki even gave us some treats in honor of my birthday. Great place, highly recommend, and we will definitely be staying there again the next time we go back to Oahu. A big mahalo to VIVE Hotel Waikiki for making my first experience in Oahu one to remember.

I really enjoyed our stay! Everyone was friendly and I personally enjoy the bright colors and designs. While I was there, I saw extra seasonal decorations. Rooms are practical and have whatever you'll need. Guest services was great! Promptly dropped off the things we asked for thru the tablet. AC was great for the humidity that I wasn't entirely used. I don't think there was a fan in the shower/bathroom, but that didn't bother me since the AC neutralized the moisture in the room. The location is great! You're just 2 short blocks away from the beach! Snack shops and restaurants all around, including the ABC marts on every. single. block. They really did come in hand though for sunscreen, sunhats, and other misc things to make your trip better. Great area for evening walks as there are shopping areas all around too. Ended up visiting family half the time so I didn't use the beach supplies but I did see them and I believe they got sanitized and cleaned thoroughly. Big shoutout to all the parking valet workers!! I got Richard's name, who was super friendly and helped us; all of them were very kind and fast at getting the cars ready for us. Also, I rather enjoyed the complimentary breakfast! It's probably the best I've had anywhere, although I am biased to the amount of fruit they included. They were individually packaged downstairs since the pandemic, no buffet style, but I enjoyed it! There was fruit, ham and cheese, and a yummy pastry inside each one. Thank you to the hotel again; I'd be happy to come back here again someday.

Rooms are well equipped and little small but work th it since I was at the beach or on a motorcycle not much time in my room. That being said they have a great public living area that’s great for hanging out in. A few blocks to the beach, but the walk is enjoyable. great selection of restaurants and take out all around. Bars or shopping it’s all right next door. Good rates when you book directly with hotel. Parking was a good deal for motorcycles they Even had a plug for my electric motorcycle that I could use no extra charge. Friendly staff, great service and a good free breakfast. I was totally satisfied and happy to stay in a small Boutique hotel! Will be back for sure thanks for the great memories, maloha!
