Booked this hotel after many reviews. It was our 2nd time on Waikiki and we did not like the old style and tiny room which most of the Waikiki hotels are.
This is a fresh and very contemporary hotel . The room is great and very clean. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The free breakfast they offer was great ! Love fresh papaya every morning and the chicken cream bun is yummy, make sure put them in the oven and toast it hot! Kona coffee was tasteful! Our hotel even offer complimentary service up to 1 hour before we head to the airport for our long flight back to NY! The location of this hotel is super convenient , abc stores and bus stops right in front! The beach is two blocks down! Complimentary beach gear to take to the beach! Overall it was well worth it! I even think with the service and price it's way better than the big names hotel chains ! Definitely check them out ! Could have not been happier!

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!
