“Wonderful staff, great rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

What a great place to stay. Friendly, efficient staff make you feel very welcome. The rooms are well laid out with maximum use of space and great beds. The lobby/breakfast room is beautiful and comfortable. The coffee and goodies were delicious. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who likes friendly service and great value.

Who cares if the room is tiny? The room itself was very new and modern with a comfy bed and big flat screen tv. The staff were by far the hotel's best asset, each and every one of them had our best interest in mind. They have secured returning guests just for the service! (And location, price and free brekky too of course)

We arrived hours before check in and I was not well. Beverley rushed us through so I could lay down. The staff are willing to help any way they can. The rooms are clean and tidy and close to everything you need.

Nice hotel with excellent staff. As other reviews point out, the rooms are a touch small but for what you're paying it still seems like a good deal. They have valet parking, but it will cost you 25 bucks a night. The beach is two short blocks away.

I stayed at the Vive Hotel between February 12-18, 2014.

Pros:
- Clean rooms with modern furnishings
- Close to Waikiki Beach (5 mins away) and other main points of interest (Diamond Head Crater, Honolulu Zoo, Honolulu Aquarium, main shopping strip, restaurants)
- Free of charge beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, mats
- Free breakfast (pastries, juice, fresh fruit)
- Friendly and helpful staff

Cons:
- Cosmopolitan rooms are small but at the price I paid for I didn't expect to get a huge room. Bathrooms also don't have much countertop space.

Overall, I had a great experience at the Vive. If you're looking for a simple hotel with good value and location then I would recommend booking your stay with this hotel. I will definitely be back for my next trip to Hawaii!

We found this hotel to be just what we needed for our 6 day stay on Oahu.
Kevin from Guest Services was so helpful as well as being a really nice fellow. His recommendations re: food, transportation, sights were interesting and turned out spot on. Well done Kevin!!!
The location was close to many amenities without having to pay the really high room rates. It was right on the main bus line which helped because we didn't rent a car (found public transportation very good to Diamond Head and Koko Head Crater). Kevin and other front desk staff arranged our Shuttle Bus services as required.
The room wasn't really large but was very comfortable. We were typically gone most of the day so didn't need a multiple room type of accommodation.
The breakfast consisted of plenty of fresh yummy fruit - as well as misc pastries. The setting is living room style as well as a large dining room table. It was at this table that we met some great people and had interesting discussions during our morning meal. Beverages were available all day - perfect for late afternoon return to hotel to freshen up for the evening! Thanks guys.
The cleaning group do a great job. They were friendly and happy to have a brief chat whenever we crossed paths.
All in all, we felt very much at home - welcome and comfortable. Thanks to all for improving our experience.
