Convenient Location

The hotel is conveniently located to everything- the beach, restaurants, bus stops, etc. The hotel also provides beach towels, beach chairs, and boogie boards for hotel guests. Unfortunately, I didn't feel that the staff were very friendly or helpful. They would only talk to you if you approached them and when I asked for suggestions they didn't provide much help.

Vive Hotel

The Vive Hotel was not for us. That being said the staff was wonderful and we were able to cancel the last 5 nights of our stay without any problems.We are older and need more space and storage than the room provided us. This would be a fabulous motel for a minimalist traveler. However the room rates are a bit high for the minimalist traveler.

Awesome! Highly recommended

The rooms are a little small, and the hotel does' t have a pool ( not needed being in Hawaii). The Staff is awesome, super friendly, complementary breakfast was perfect. The hotel also provides beach mats, towels, chairs... I loved their shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. Great location

Modern Decor, Close to Beach, Small Rooms

Beautiful lobby; free continental breakfast of fruit, coffee, and pastries; staff was very helpful and friendly; discount for car rentals; beach towels, mats, umbrellas; rooms and bathrooms were quite small and window AC was noisy.

Wonderful Stay!

I had a wonderful stay. The rooms were very clean and the staff was very helpful. I was a little hesitant after reading the comments about the size of the room. However, I felt the room was adequate enough for me and my companion. It is in a perfect location and very close to the beach!! They provide beach chairs and towels. I wasn't too excited about the breakfast they provided. It was very basic with just fruit and pastries.

Great hotel

The beach is close, like 5 min walking. The room was small, but had everything we needed. We loved the breakfast. They offer free beach towels. We could also leave our baggage for few hours when we checked out. Overall it was perfect hotel for this price.

Great location if you want to be right in the middle of the Waikiki craziness.

Service was great but be forewarned if you don't want a room with two twin beds you need to indicate this, very European style in that aspect. Also the breakfast is free for a reason, really pedestrian. Otherwise the place is spotless and the staff is friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

If you really want to see Hawaii at it's best get the heck out of Waikiki, it's crowded and a REALLY dangerous place to learn to surf. A short drive will get you to some really lovely beaches.
