This is a fairly reasonably priced hotel by Hong Kong standards and is a nicely designed boutique hotel. Only complaint was that the room was pretty small (even though I was upgraded) and I personally did not like the configuration with sliding doors to close off the toilet area which is a little transparent and not very sound proofed from the rest of the room. On the first night there was also a bad smell coming from the basin but it went away so I think it may have been a one off problem. Great location if you want to be near central for work or near the bar area of Lan Kwai Fung for play. Internet access and nice reception area to hang out. The rooms have nice designs. For a single person on a business trip it is a good place to stay if you do not mind a small room.

The Butterfly hotel is a convenient well run and modern hotel very close to the mid-level escalator, packed in with lots of great restaurants and coffee shops nearby. Wifi and all the modern amenities worked well, but our bathroom had a sliding door which wouldn't win any design awards, so I concur with other reviewers on this one. The bed and linens were a step up from other hotels in the range in HK, and it felt very new. The service was professional and friendly and spoke perfect English too, lobby was a nice touch. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Great place.

The hotel is located 100yds from the central escalator so it's very easy to get up the mid-levels to the SoHo restaurant area. Very good rates, well kept room and great service. When we come to Hong Kong next we'll definately book here again.

Room Tip: Try for a corner room so you look up Wellington Street from one window and across to the finance bui...

Just spent 7 nights at Butterfly on Wellington and thoroughly enjoyed it. Reception staff are very helpful and the Nespresso machine is a nice touch. Our room on the 10th floor was clean, comfortable and quiet, though we were occasionally disturbed by people going in and out of the neighbouring room in the middle of the night. The location is great if you want to be close to the action, with street markets, Soho, Queens Rd shopping and train stations within walking distance.

Great location, what you would expect of china with street markets and bus ale all around yet the rooms were very quiet and insulated. GreAt restaurants and bars all around. Close to everything even the night scene. Rooms were small but all you need and good value for hkg. Bonly one mess up when our laundry was not done on last day... So nothi g clean to wear on flight home, which left a bad feeling.

Perfect location for this clean and simple hotel. You should be able to get rates for under $200 USD which is fantastic for this neighborhood. One block from the escalator in Soho and only 2 minutes from the IFC and airport train/check-in. Other hotels in this area are all over $400. Excellent value.

The location of this hotel is great if you want to step out of the front door and straight into the heart of this bustling metropolis. We stayed here because of its proximity to the MTR and downtown check-in before flying back to the UK. It has an unprepossessing entrance but once you step out of the lift into reception, it has a relaxed and quiet efficiency and comfort about it. The service is exceptional, really attentive and this scores big with me. I have stayed in a backpacker hotel at the other end of the island but it was too far out and the Mandarin Oriental was way to expensive for me so this hotel perfectly balances budget and location. The room was adequate for one night, the ensuite very tasteful and all exceptionally clean, very boutique in style. Fantastic night's sleep in very comfortable bed, soft pillows, didn't want to get up. All usual facilities in room like tea and coffee, some internet and wifi available - internet accessible on terminals in reception too, hairdryer and so on making it convenient as well as restful We had a free upgrade to a room at the back/ side but the view was of a tired and shabby but very real Hong Kong. The price is just about at the limit, wouldn't want to pay more. The professionalism of the staff however made me feel that this would be a safe base to explore this wonderful city from. They even offered to get my broken computer fixed for me.

Room Tip: Be wary of the free upgrade if you're staying for any length of time as you might want to consid...
