I wouldn't necessarily call it a "boutique" hotel...yes relatively good customer service, free wi-fi, Nescafé machine & free water but nothing out or the ordinary...

Easy walking distance to IFC, Airport Express Station - due to wet weather I chose to take a taxi...the trip from Airport to Hong Kong Island is approximately a 25min trip, can't fault getting an Octopus just make sure you put extra money on it so you can use on all transport as well as 7/11 convenience stores..!

The bed & pillows were really comfortable, there was plenty of storage / wardrobe space and room had a handy iPhone docking station...down side for me the bathroom was quite dark, so for those ladies trying to apply makeup can be slighly difficult - didn't want to go out looking like Bridget Jones with blush smudged all over my cheeks..!!

No onsite restaurant service but plenty of great food, fresh fruit & veges available at your doorstep...the hollywood road, mid-level escalators fantastic, they run downwards from 6am til 10am and upwards from 10am til 10pm...

Room Tip: Stayed on 25th floor, fantastic photos even through window of night show of lights...too wet & m...

I booked this hotel from home in LA without a clue about the location but I liked the name. When I arrived, I was a bit concerned by the activity in the area, that seemed to be The spot fot HK night life. But as soon as I walked in, I forgot about everything. I felt safe and at home. The staff is incredibly nice, the decoration tasteful, I had a quiet room and was even surprise by the size. I moved in with three suitcases for a three-week trip and I could fit almost all my clothes and shoes in the closet! The next day I found out that there is a vegetarian restaurant in the same street, called Mana, almost all my meetings were around that busy street.Pure Fitness is 5 minutes away. It is the perfect location indeed.

Very easy to walk with bags from the nearest MRT - took about 10 mins. Room very good with lovely comfortable bed at a great rate. Street outside bustling and interesting within easy reach of all central places of interest.

I usually stay at the Butterfly on Morrison, but the brand has expanded across Hong Kong and, as I had a quick visit I chose the Butterfly on Wellington. The Butterfly brand are no-frills hotels so there are no facilities, not even breakfast. However you get a good price and a clean tastefully decorated room and an efficient check-in and check-out service.

The Butterfly on Wellington held the promise of this brand very well indeed, and I had a delightful stay there. The location is second to none - next to the escalators to mid-levels with all the bars and nightlife. Despite the outside bustle however, the room was a peaceful haven with a nice designer theme, a power shower, good aircon and a tea/coffee maker. Most of all it was clean and the bed was comfortable.

If you just want a great room for the night a few steps from hundreds of restaurants, the MTR (underground train) stations and shopping, and you can live without a gym, buffet breakfast, fancy-dress doormen or servile pampering, I highly recommend this place.

And by the way, you can walk to the hotel from the Airport Express station if you arrive from the airport using this. You'll need to study the map, but you don't need a taxi.

Room Tip: Negotiate a bit on check-in! I got upgraded to the top floor room at no extra cost, even though the...

Stayed 2 nights. Perfect for somewhere conveniently close to Central (walking distance). Also walking distance to Hong Kong station if you want to take MTR to the airport (and don't have too much luggage). Rooms modern and clean. Has no restaurant so no breakfast, but that is fine by me as I prefer to eat out anyway. Staff friendly and helpful. Very good value.

This is my 2nd stay at Butterfly On Wellington. Very good location, walking distance to Central and IFC. Rooms are moderately sized, which is good by HK standards. Comfortable bed. Room includes empty mini-fridge, a nice change from the usual annoying hotel mini-bar stocked with overpriced items. Free Wi-Fi. Helpful staff. No restaurant, fitness center, etc. but plenty to see and eat right outside the front door. Would definitely stay here again.

My friend and I stayed for 3 nights, and had a wonderful stay! The Central District is where you want to be for its proximity to the Star Ferry and the ferry to Macau, both of which we utilized. The underground is close by as well, which allowed us to visit the Big Buddha, New Territories, and Stanley. I would highly recommend staying on a high floor. The rooms are clean and spacious for Asia. The service was so attentive and wonderful, such that the hotel quickly became our home away from home in HK. I would highly recommend b/c you will adore the staff who will make sure that your stay is every bit as pleasant as you want it to be when you're traveling.

The positive reviews here are solid. You will not regret staying here should you need a couple days in HK and a reliable base from which to explore the surrounding parts. You WILL be treated like an old friend, and who doesn't need friends in far-flung places? Enjoy -- we certainly did!

Room Tip: ask for a high floor to avoid the street noise
