“Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Great, great location. Literally 30 seconds walk to the escalator. Room nicely appointed and very quiet.

Only negative side was the over zealous housekeeping staff who were so keen to get in, that they would ring the bell and call "housekeeping", but it would be more like "houseke" and they would be opening the door. Not great if you're in the middle of getting dressed. I soon learnt to keep the 'do not disturb' sign on the door at all times I was in there!

excellent quiet central location and ease of use on wifi internet. the experience on the whole was good. I will recommend this boutique hotel for friends, couples and business (without breakfast) for their visit. It's within walking distance to the famous Yungkee roast duck place and 5mins walk to Central MTR station.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are decently sized.

Butterfly on Wellington is the second butterfly location we tried in Hong Kong in the space of 3 weeks,the other being just of Nathan Road in Tsim Sh Tsui (Butterfly on Pratt).The comments regarding both properties are similar and seem to represent this chain.
Location - in both cases (wellington and Pratt) - is superb - right in the heart of events in the city.The Wellington st location is a few steps from Central and HKG MRT,queens road central,De Voux road ,hollywood road etc - superb location in Central for a tourist.
The service is great - warm and efficient - with the staff trying hard to meet all requests and requirements - for example - the lovely door lady in Wellington rushed out with an umbrella for us seeing the rain outside and our hestitation to step out of the hotel foyer.
The down side is the tiny rooms - around 22 square meters - so basically a double bed fills the space,the bathroom-shower is functional but also on the small size,and the glass doors may be trendy but left me feeling uncomfortable..
bottom line - if u can handle the claustrophobia - Butterfly properties make for a good,reasonably priced 3 star accomodation solutiion right near the action in Hong Kong.

Room Tip: get higher floors to avoid the street noise

This is my fifth stay at BOW and I will stay again. Whilst the rooms are not big (are there any large rooms in Hong Kong), the position makes up for the room size.

As other reviewers have said, the location is fantastic. Close to SOHO & LKF restaurants and bars, the shrinking wet market in Graham Street, the ferries, the Hong Kong Station to the airport, the MTR. You can walk to them all.

The only down side was the speed of the WIFI.

Room Tip: pay a little more for a larger room

I arrived at BOW on the 8th March 2013 in the afternoon. Took a taxi from the Hong Kong Station and the place was within easy reach. BOW was very nicely tucked into the city with lots of restaurants and pubs. Place was very lively and there were many things to see and do nearby.
Service from the staff was perfect, they were attentive to details and were friendly, ready to chat you up if you were looking someone to talk to, or even if you were asking street directions. Rooms were well furnished and spacious, as I was on a business trip, the room was conducive for following up on some work at night. Will definitely be back here again.

Thank you for your great comments! Indeed, Butterfly on Wellington is situated in a lively location where everything ranging from grocery stores, wet markets, night life, shopping and fine dining are just steps away.

It was so nice to hear that you have experienced our friendly & attentive service during your stay. Instead of the hotel facilities, our staffs are our biggest assets that offer each of our guest an enjoyable experience.

Thanks again for your encouraging feedback and we look forward to welcoming you again in your next visit!

Great location...Right in the middle of everything! Walking distance to the noisiest street Lan Kwai Fong....If you are looking for party life and lots of restaurants that`s the right place! Very easy to find ...From the airport just get the airport express ,10 euros/pers to Hong Kong Centre.The Airport Express takes passengers to Central in just 24 minutes. Quick and comfortable.From there is 10 minutes walk! Taxi it is around 30 euros ,and charge for the lagguage in the boot and takes 1 hour.Nice and clean hotel ...and reasonable price for Hong Kong. Walking distance to the Star Fairy too which you must see in the day time and night...cost 20cents one way and it is every 10 minutes ...Great hotel ...especially if you stay only few days and you want to visit a lot...Very good wi-fi...Not a very good hotel for buggys and children ...To many stairs and escalators for that...

Room Tip: Location...Top floor it is better view of the city

We stayed here for a stopover on the way back from a business trip. Location was perfect, took 5mins to walk to the hotel from the airport line train station on Hong Kong island. Great service from the staff with the rooms quite spacious for Hong Kong. Would definitely stay here again.
