Just enough convenience

  • 4 of 5

The room is not large but who wants to be in their room the whole time. Very convenient location. Walmart next door and Safeway not to far but what was really awesome was all the downtown history starting just one block to the east.

Nice harbor views, convenient and clean

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very nice and had everything I needed. My office is one block from the building so my commute was fantastic! Wonderful harbor views out of the bedroom windows and the included free parking in the building was nice too.

Fit our needs

  • 4 of 5

The apt was fine for what we wanted. We needed a place close to where or children live. This was 1 1/2 blocks away. The bedroom was clean and comfortable. The bed was good. Plenty of space to hang things. The bathroom was ok, met our needs.

The living room and kitchen could use a little updating.

Property itself, the executive center, was ok. Location, not so much.

  • 1 of 5

The unit was very dated and had a stale smell in it. It was so bad after one night, we left to find other accommodation closer to Waikiki.

I admit to my error by looking at Honolulu and not Waikiki specific, but did not expect this type of accommodation in a condo on VRBO.

I would NOT recommend this unit to anyone. A very costly mistake. Would really appreciate getting a partial refund from the owners.

When we checked in, the cleaning lady was still there- it was 4:05. She had to return, as she forgot the bath mat. On top of that, we only had 1 key as she forgot the other one.

As stated, we only stayed the one night, as we couldn't stand the musty smell, and no windows to open.

Owner's Response: We strive to provide an excellent experience for all of our guests, but these visitors apparently wanted to stay in Waikiki, not downtown Honolulu. Our VRBO page provides unambiguous location information as well as numerous photos of the tasteful interior decor and amenities.Executive Centre is a 40 story building that includes the 5 star Aston Hotel, The windows don't open as that would pose a safety hazard. Because of the restricted air flow we provide a very effective air purifier in the unit. The guests did not try to contact us and if they had we would have addressed their concerns and do our best to ensure their comfort. We are use receiving 5 stars and their given us 1 star because they booked the wrong location is extremely unfair. In our ten years of doing VR our lowest rating ever had been 4 stars. please review other guest responses before and after this booking.

Nice apartment downtown

  • 4 of 5

Overall the building and rental unit were a bit dated. The unit had everything we needed, and for a couple and was comfortable. There is not a lot of room in the unit, so I would only recommend it for up to a couple. We liked the location as it was close to dinning, bars, shopping, Chinatown and freeway accessible. One big plus was the included parking space. This saved us hundreds of dollars. Just remember this is downtown, so it is not paradise and beaches, but they are real close. Overall I would say this rental wasnt perfect, but for the price I would stay again.
