“Stayed More Than 50 Nights”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

I’ve stayed at the Butterfly on Morrison (BOM) more than 50 nights – that tells you something about my view on this hotel. On average I stay 10 nights per trip and book in a Deluxe room. So, what keeps me coming back? The Buttterfly Hotel Group offers great value – nicely appointed rooms, helpful staff, convenient locations and reasonable rates. BOM does not have a pool, gym, restaurant (the restaurant on 1/F is not part of the hotel) or lavish services – but you don’t need all that because you are in Hong Kong. Everything you need is right in Causeway Bay and surrounding areas. What you want is a comfortable room in an area that allows you to enjoy what the city has to offer – and BOM gives you that. While the Deluxe room is small I’ve never felt closed in. Because the hotel is an elliptical shape the width gets narrow at the ends – this means that the Deluxe rooms which are situated at each end have full windows on both sides of the room, and they are floor to ceiling so you have a feeling of openness. If you are on a higher floor you will even have incredible views of Happy Valley, Causeway Bay and even the sun setting behind the cityscape.

If you are active and like to jog or workout while traveling you have lots of options nearby. There is a jogging track around the infield at Happy Valley Race Course, and provides incredible views of the track and offer a sense of serenity away from the busy city. You can also take the Wan Chai Gap Road up to Bowen Road and jog high above the city, or even continue for a hike over to Aberdeen. There is also a jogging track in Victoria Park. All this is better than being on a treadmill and you can experience the city.

Causeway Bay is the “Center” of Hong Kong – great shopping at Times Square and Hysan Place to name some, lots of great restaurants, access to transportation and lots of outdoor leisure facilities. If you are up for walking, which you should if you are in HK, I suggest going to Tai Hang, on the eastern side of Causeway Bay. It is a quiet neighborhood that has been gentrified with hip restaurants, boutiques and dessert places. If you want to experience HK you should spend time walking the different neighborhoods.

I do have one criticism. The hotel offers mostly non-smoking rooms but does not enforce this policy at check-in. I am a non-smoker and really don’t like having cigarette smoke enter my room from neighboring rooms or from the halls. People in Asia smoke quite a bit and assume it is acceptable to smoke unless told otherwise, but the hotel does not have any non-smoking signage in the rooms or in the halls. And, upon check-in, the guest is not advised they are on a non-smoking floor. On many occasions I spoke to management and they called the guests on my floor, but this could be resolved (or dramatically reduced) by simply placing small non-smoking signs (very tastefully designed) in each room and in the halls of non-smoking floors. One idea for management to consider - many USA hotel groups have guests sign a “non-smoking policy” stating they will be fined US$200 for cleaning services if the guest smokes in the room. If BOM offers non-smoking rooms they should do more to enforce the policy. The fact is that smoking is not good for the hotel. It is impossible to get smoke out of drapes, pillows and mattresses. Smoking costs the hotel more money by deteriorating room cleanliness. The hotel should discourage in-room smoking. Although this is quite frustrating, the staff was friendly, understanding and did their best to address my concerns. The issue was resolved in a reasonable time – but the hotel management could help their staff by having a more stringent non-smoking policy.

I am planning of staying at BOM in the future, but with many new “all non-smoking” boutique hotels set to open by 1st quarter of 2013 the Butterfly Hotel Group management needs determine how to attract and retain customers.

The staff was very professional and spoke excellent English, which I appreciate since I don't speak Chinese.

My junior room was small but perfect for one person. The room was very clean, had a nice modern bathroom, and a cute boutique'y look. WiFi connectivity was excellent, which I miss now that I'm in Indonesia where hotel WiFi can be spotty.

There was instant coffee, creamer and a hot water kettle in the room which was great to get going in the morning. I also loved the iPod clock radio for music in the morning and evenings.

The location was convenient to buses to Aberdeen if you're a tourist like I was on this trip. It was also easy to get buses to Central, however I felt far away from the real action. There is a cool market nearby, but if you're a tourist and not traveling on business, you'll feel disconnected from going-out type places and major sites. The area is comprised of local businesses which makes it mire interesting, but not an area where you'll get a good dinner and go out to party. In fact if you're a solo female traveler you'll get more looks in this neighborhood than somewhere more mainstream. It was fine but something to note.

The hotel does not have a restaurant but there are several 7-11 convenience stores nearby.

For a night or two stopover this is a nice little boutique hotel. My room is pretty small ( but this is HK), but a comfortable double with clean, well appointed but small bathroom. Given the location there is little road noise, but I could hear neighbouring rooms. Front desk was efficient and welcoming. One to remember

A great hotel, part of a small chain in Hong Kong, Butterfly on Morrison was an ideal place to base myself for my first trip to Hong Kong. The rooms are smallish (not uncommon in HK I imagine) but well designed with ample storage. Bathroom had modern fittings and an amazing double headed shower. Bed very comfortable and being on the 8th floor I was not disturbed by street noise.
The staff were all polite, friendly and professional, able to offer advice on where to eat and drink. We were directed to The Derby, a great local bar with live music on Saturday and Wednesday.
There is an airport shuttle bus which is reasonably priced and takes the hassle out of the journey.
I would certainly recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to return there myself when next in HK.

First day we took a room from 5th floor but it was slightly noisy of outside traffic, changed it next day to 9th floor, and noise not disturbing anymore. The shower room was a little bit small for average North-European man :) but I managed well, so no complaining about that. Very good service, very nice and helpful staff. Very good location, near Time Square, and by metro or by bus other places near enough. Not expensive comparing to the very good location. Remember to take Octopus card if you stay longer, it makes travel easier, can be used also as entry card to some places. Internet connection worked fine, except for some times I couldn't get through at all, but it might have been problem in my laptop. I recommend.

Room Tip: Rooms from 9th floor or above more quite.

Had to vacate my former hotel since they were doubling the price on a Friday night and came across the Butterfly here. Good price and a brand new place in a great location with easy access to the streetcar and bus lines; lively area with good restaurants. Hotel was very modern and rooms were well laid out though smallish, which was okay as it was just myself. Free wifi and good access in the small lobby on all new Mac computers. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: I was on a higher floor with a nice view. It's sort of a high skinny building so you might ask...

The hotel is very well located. Just a few minutes walk from Times Square.
Check in very efficient. Staff is well familiar with the area and gave good explanations and directions. I was upgraded to the 21st floor, great view of the town!
The room was quite large, enough for 2 people, very clean. Room service efficient.
Rate is good value for money. I will definitly stay there again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Combining contemporary comfort with a classy dose of European pizzazz, Butterfly on Morrison cannot enjoy a better location than where it is at Causeway Bay. That means 5 minutes away from the heart of shopper's Hong Kong (think Times Square, Sogo and the brand new Hysan Place); 5 minutes from the high-octane actions of the Happy Valley racetrack and the Hong Kong stadium; 10 minutes from the nightlife and heritage cool of Wan Chai and the same number of minutes from the chic and quirks of Star Street Precinct. In short, everything that makes Hong Kong buzz and hum with energy is right outside. Inside, 98 guest rooms are filled to the brim with sophisticated amenities, offering every comfort for both work and play, including a free smartphone offering unlimited local calls and 3G data, Wi-Fi tethering, a city guide as well as all sorts of interesting info and features. However busy the night gets, the hotel will be your refuge. So when you're tired from a day of non-stop shopping, Rugby Sevens watching or nightlife exploring, return to us, relax and lounge. Our 24-hour front desk and 'Local Ambassadors' have got you covered. How well connected are we? - 6-minute walk to Causeway Bay MTR. - 15-minute taxi ride to the Airport Express Hong Kong Station for direct train connection to Hong Kong International Airport. ... more   less
