3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Quick walk to beach and shopping from an exceptional hotel. Would strongly recommend for individuals on a short stay on Waikiki.

Very Positive...enjoyed the free breakfast. Staff was friendly, rooms were clean and location was perfect.

nice hotel. great staff. 1 block to the beach. free breakfast. rooms are on the small side.

Nice hotel, close to the beach. Near tourist areas. Walking distance to majority of things to do there. Staff is helpful and courteous.

Loved our stay here. There is no beach view but so what? Walking to Waikiki takes maybe 5 minutes at most. You travel to Hawaii to be outside so save a few bucks and stay here. They provide complimentary beach towels, beach mats, and boogie boards. The complimentary breakfast is modest but much appreciated, but the downside is the lack of table space in the lounge. The only real negative I can think of is the $25/night parking charge. If you don't need a car there is a bus stop right out front and The Bus is one of the best public transportation services in the nation. If you go in knowing what to expect you won't be disappointed. The location is great, the beds are comfy, and the rooms are clean.

Great location, great value for money. The only bad thing is that my cam charger disappeared.

Excellent location. Hotel staffs are very friendly and helpful. Although the room is quite small, you won't come to Waikiki to spend time in the hotel.

Just steps away from the beach and beach gear is provided. Continental breakfast is also complimentary as is coffee, tea and water all day. If you don't mind walking to the beach and don't need an onsite pool, this is a very convenient hotel. Staff is pleasant and helpful.

The hotel is remodeled from old condo. The room kept clean, but you won't have luxury vacation feeling. I requested ocean view room with extra money, but it is not woth it. I stayed a nice part of the hotel, but the room has a partial ocean view, witn no balcony. If you look through window, you can see some ocean with dirty roof of neighbor lower structures. It was not really pretty view. I regret to pay ocean view room. The staffs are very friendly and kind. The fruits of the breakfast was good, but all breads and pasty are very bad taste that made my stomach upset. I will not come back to this hotel.

great location,close to beach and restaurants. nice stuff. small rooms.

The hotel was very nice and close to the beach. It was the best deal I could find that close to the beach. I will stay there again in the future.

Good location, price is good compared to hotels. Employees are friendly, the breakfast is wonderful. A pity that there is no swimming pool. I recommend this hotel facilities were ok overall.

The rooms were really small, but they were okay since we weren't in the room that much besides the morning and night. AC blew cold so that was nice. Room service did a good job of cleaning. The complimentary breakfast was pretty good and saved us a lot of money. It's a pretty nice hotel for how cheap it was to stay there, but next time id probably pay a little more for a nicer hotel, view, and location.

We were pleased and enjoyed our stay with Vive especially the free continental breakfast, free wi-fi, friendly & helpful staff, very good location, close to the beach, bus stop, the Catholic Church, shopping stores. The only thing that we didn't like, the air-conditioner was very noisy and was on and off very frequent. We would use Vive again Thank you.

I stayed for 5 nights, it is a great location to go anywhere and close to the beach. The room is really small, i dont think it is enough for more than 3 people

Valet service was quick thanks to all the valet guys! Living room has chic vibe and was a great place to hang out and have complimentary breakfast. I like the simplicity of the room, some say it is small, but who's going to stay in the room all day?! Very short walk to the beach. Overall, great staff, always accommodating. I love the size of this little boutique hotel because it feels more personalized.

it was a good stay, comfortable, good location too/

Good enough for the value. Parking exceeded other nearby hotels but only by $5.

It was nothing special, but I knew what I was getting into aside from underestimating the nuisance of the air conditioner units. Will not be staying in a hotel that lacks central air ever again. I am a solid sleeper but these things were LOUD and clunky even with the settings adjusted so they didn't cycle on/off all night.

Awesome experience. The room is small like all the reviews say but it is super clean and the staff is extremely helpful. Walking distance to the beach and free coffee and fruits for breakfast. Beverly was very nice to us. We needed a late check out because our flight was at 9:00pm. She offered a complimentary room for one hour so we could still go to the beach and wash up before our flight.
