This was our fourth time at the Vive. The staff at the front desk, the kitchen staff in the morning and the cleaning staff are just great. This hotel is great value for the money. We are looking forward to coming again next February.

I absolutely loved my stay at Vive, from the minute we arrived we were greeted with that Aloha feel, with fresh pineapple juice at reception. They accommodated our check-in requirements, which made our arrival day even better. Awesome breakfast buffet - and tea, coffee and cold

This hotel is a very good place for the price. It’s centrally located in Waikiki and it’s easy to walk everywhere. Although the hotel is a little bit dated, and doesn’t have balconies, the view is great and the rooms are nicely appointed.

We arrived a few hours after check in and Preston was there to greet us with a smile! He also watched our shopping bags while we went out for Hula Dog Kūhiō, which is a delicious local style hot dog stand right up the street.

Aloha Travelpics, Thank you for your questions and thank you Tracey P for providing some insight. The difference between the Lifestyle Junior Suite and Lifestyle Junior Suite ocean view is simply the view itself. Ocean view will be facing Kuhio Avenue towards Waikiki Beach while the other is a city/mountain view on the backside of the building. Both of those have a king size bed and is about 440sq. ft. and has a walk in shower. The guest Tracey P below has the Cosmopolitan Queen room which is a room about 220sq. ft and has a queen bed with a bath tub. It offers great value if room space isn't a big concern. Should you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask. -Vive Management

Aloha Lindypc, It is possible to get a Pearl Harbor Tour from the hotel. Our dedicated concierge is located in the hotel's living room daily from 8 a.m.- 2 p.m. to assist with reservations. To see everything they have to offer at Pearl Harbor, tours usually start at 6 a.m. and last until 4:30 p.m. There are also shorter tours available starting later in the morning which show a portion of Pearl Harbor's attractions. Mahalo, Vive Management

Aloha, Thank you for your question. Hawaii has passed a comprehensive smoke-free law and smoking is prohibited in all enclosed and partially enclosed areas. Thus, we enforce a strict smoke-free zone, including the lanai areas. You may smoke 20 feet from any entrance of a building. I hope we answered your questions. We appreciate you reaching out to us. Kindest regards, Vive Hotel Management

"Higher floors have less noise from streets"
"Book direct with Vive, get a room above 15th floor (quiet), enjoy the excellent service"
"Ocean view room on the eastern side allowed a lovely view of the sunrise"
"Ask for beach view otherwise you'll be staring at nearby apartment buildings."
"See if you can get a room facing the back. Might be quieter..."
