Friendly Staff, Walkable Location, & Highly Recommended! :)
Aloha, I usually don't write reviews but wanted to share with everyone how wonderful our stay was at VIVE Hotel Waikiki in Honolulu, Hawaii on the island of Oahu - starting from checking into the hotel with a warm and friendly smile and assistance from Christine at the front desk. She was very helpful and patient with us as we asked her questions about things to do in Honolulu, the beaches, and directions since it was our first time on the beautiful island. I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel - all the staff we encountered were nice and friendly and the location was close to everything! Mahalo VIVE Hotel Waikiki & Honolulu for a great vacation!! :) -wwwestpnw, Portland, Oregon
The complete package
The staff genuinely make this hotel a standout experience. Combined with its great location (within 3 mins of beach, restaurants, bus stop, supermarket, car rental and coin operated laundry) value for money and modern fitout, including in room tablet to access hotel services, this hotel was the complete package. We were really made to feel at home during our week long stay in a 2 room family suite, each room with its own ensuite. Additional inclusions such as continental breakfast and complimentary use of beach towels, beach mats and beach umbrellas were a nice touch. Valet parking is expensive in Waikiki (US$30-40/day), but at US$25/day, Vive is more reasonable. In window air-conditioners were a little old and noisy but effective. VP-AUS, Sydney, Australia
Great price, great location, and breakfast is included!
The Vive Hotel is centrally located in Kuhio Avenue, Waikiki. It is a short walk to Waikiki Beach, the International Marketplace, and to many other attractions. The bus stop is located outside the door. Not only is it convenient, the hotel is nicely appointed, the rooms are clean, and there is a very nice continental breakfast included in the price. We love this hotel and will return. -Rambling R, Melbourne, Australia
Exceptional hotel with close walking to beach. Staff was so friendly and helpful and the ammendities are incredible. Everything you need from a hotel in Waikiki without paying the insane resort fees that you would pay for another 5 star hotel. -ceveng
Great little place!
The rooms are small but clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was tasty and, well, free! Very close to the beach and all the Waikiki shopping. The hotel was the best price I found (and I looked at a whole lot of hotels) We had a great stay! -Nikki J, Syracuse
