“Great Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

A great little hotel, rooms are small but perfectly formed and have everything. Staff are efficient and welcoming. Had a lovely view of the park next door. Great location and easy to walk everywhere, close to the subway. Very clean and loved the theme of Hollywood movies. Excellent value for money in expensive HK. Did get some noise from the rooms next door thats the only down side to a lovely hotel.

Very friendly English speaking staff, hotel is in good location for shopping, eating out and night life. We stayed two nights and will recommend it, in fact we will stay on our next visit at Butterfly on Hollywood.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less street noise.

We found Butterfly on Hollywood to be a fine facility. While we had wireless problems the first night the staff not only moved us to another room the next day, they upgraded us as well. The front desk staff was invariably gracious and helpful. One person in particular, Andrew Lam, went above and beyond to assist us. Between a remarkable subway system that makes getting around a breeze and the advice, map marking and the like from Mr. Lam we had a terrific time in Hong Kong.

For what it is worth, consider a weekday early morning visit to Victoria's Peak. We went by Sunday afternoon and faced hours of waiting to take the tram. We showed up at 8 a.m. Monday and shared the tram with two other people...although the trams coming up were full and there were several hundred lined up by the time we came down.

Located 5 mins walk from Sheung Wan MTR station this hotel is great to get easy access to the shops and nightlife in Central.
My room was a fair size for a HK hotel room, relatively newly refurbished, well laid out and clean. Perfect for a three or four night stay.
Will definitely stay here again on my next visit as it offers great value for money.

Room Tip: The hotel only has two lifts. If you are on a high floor you may have to wait a few mins for a lift.

We stayed here during the Christmas week. The staff were very accommodating and speak good English. MTR station is about 10 minute walk from the hotel. The room we stayed was clean and big enough for me, my wife and my 1 year old daughter.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

The hotel is fairly decent and has an interesting decorative layout resembling Hollywood. They even have some flash lights at the lobby as you walked past ( I thought that was pretty creative and cool!). Summarising my experience

Plus:
- value for money. Definitely budget hotel with a touch of some artistic quirks
- clean! (Major plus)
- provides free wifi (also a major plus) and the connection is pretty good
- great view. The room faces the Hollywood rd park. So you get to see some greenery instead of endless buildings
- lots of great eat outs nearby

The minus
- it's relatively far from the mtr station to the hotel, and a bit uphill which is a little difficult when we were carrying huge luggage + massive crowds. If you're travelling via mtr you should exit through exit B which is an easier path for luggages
- room is a little small without proper ventilation. Their workaround is to turn on the aircondition when showering.
- could add some other kitchen utensils like mini plates/saucers and cutleries. I think most guest would find it useful

So overall, it is a value for money for a budget hotel

Nice location, nice staff, nice atmosphere. Pleasant christmas decor and ambiance, interesting installations and lighting.

Let me just jump to the one point of critique: It's forgivable that the hotel doesn't have a restaurant/café, but that's all the more reason why the rooms therefore ought to have some stock. If they've gone to the difficulty of installing a fridge and water kettle, why skimp and only leave 2 packets of coffee for the guest? Instant coffee is cheap, there should be a box of packets, and for that matter a packet or two of cup noodles, or whatever - even primitive hotels in backwards countries will have this, why not the Butterfly - that's the only thing holding back a 5 star review.

Thank you for taking the time to post this review It's great that you had an overall nice experience with us. By the way, it's a pity that we haven't been more proactive in hearing your needs during your stay. We will always do our best to offer our guests stuffs like extra instant coffee or even other things that is not available in the room upon request. So next time when you visit us, do not hesitate to let us know your wish and we'll definitely help.
