The rooms were clean, the beds were comfy and the view of the city was fantastic. We only stayed here a couple of nights, but we enjoyed it and it was well-located. The staff was helpful and the wifi was fast.

We stayed in the Butterfly on Wellington for one night to break the journey from Melbourne to Paris. On our previous visit to Hong Kong we stayed on the Kowloon side at Mongkok, so we picked the Butterfly on Wellington because of its location on the Hong Kong side, and good reviews on TA.
The location is excellent. It is easy to get to and from the Hong Kong Airport Express Station by taxi or walking. We went taxi to the hotel for a cost of 40HKD, but walked back the next day with our cases without any problems. The hotel is within 100 metres of the Mid-Levels escalators.
The check-in process was smooth, and we were given an upgrade from an Executive room to a Butterfly Suite on the 2nd floor. Although close to street level, it was quiet and we heard no street noise in the morning.
The room was large (it was a suite) and very comfortable. We were allowed to have a late checkout until 2pm, and then the hotel stored our luggage until we were ready to take it to the station in the evening.
Both the reception and door staff were friendly and efficient.
The Butterfly on Wellington is definitely value for money if you want a comfortable room in a great location without paying for all the other 5 star items you might not use, e.g. gym, pool, lobby, bar, etc.
There were many restaurants around, so breakfast was not an issue.
We would definitely stay at the Butterfly on Wellington the next time we pass through Hong Kong.

Room Tip: Book an Executive and you may get an upgrade anyway.

After having had a bad experience with another hotel in this chain we were a bit leery of staying here but other options were hard to come by. We were surprised in a very positive way.

Rooms, while being Hong Kong small size were clean and comfortable. Staff were all really attentive and helpful.

We stayed here for 6 days and were impressed with the stay - the location in particular was excellent - 10 minutes walk to Central 10 minutes walk to Lang KwaI Fung.

While there is no breakfast available in the hotel the proximity to hundreds of restaurants meant we didn't go hungry, and the hotel reception provided good free coffee and comfortable seating.

WiFi was provided and was fast enough.

Check-in and check was fast and efficient and friendly - maybe staying for 6 days was enough for the staff to get to know us but we were greeted by name from Day 1.

Can thoroughly recommend this place for anyone looking for good value, clean rooms and great location.

As good as it gets for a boutique hotel. Perfect location, small enough to feel warm and inviting, professionally run. Rooms were quite spacious for HK, good furniture and comfortable mattresses (not always the case in China or Taiwan). No-hassle WiFi and in-room Nespresso make this one a preferred one for me.

No gym or restaurant, but tons of excellent restaurants and a market right outside the front door.

Room Tip: This is downtown HK; get up as high as you can if you want any view at all.

We stayed at Butterfly on Wellington for eight nights from Saturday 13 April in a superior room. We know Hong Kong really well, having lived there for 11 years from 1996 till 2007, and we specifically chose this hotel for its reasonable cost and its position. The position couldn't be better, the finish of the hotel and the rooms were excellent, the staff couldn't have been more polite, obliging or friendly. The ensuite was an ample size, beautifully set out and cleaned to perfection every day. The only minus, in our opinion, was the size of the room, but this is Hong Kong after all, and prices being what they are, this was within our budget. No breakfast, no gym, no frills, as a previous reviewer has mentioned, but none of these things were promised. Thanks so much, Butterfly on Wellington!

Thank you for choosing Butterfly on Wellington for your eight nights stay too!

Butterfly on Wellington location is indeed locating in one of the best areas at Hong Kong Island, as local shopping malls, eateries, Soho and spots for nightlife could be found within a short walk.

We also appreciate your understanding about the room size standard in Hong Kong. Indeed, we have put a lot of effort on designing the guest room layout to ensure all available space are well utilized and a comfortable setting is offered to our guests. By the way, we do offer guest rooms in larger size - namely Deluxe, Executive and Suite, you might consider to stay in one of those and hopefully your stay would be even more enjoyable!

Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon!

The rooms are nice and clean and the location is terrific. The room is not huge but that's typical size for HK hotels at this price point. This is a no frills hotel - no breakfast, no gym etc. You don't need a restaurant in this hotel since there are tons of places nearby.

I have given a low score for the reason below alone I.e Glass see through bathroom door, giving no privacy. Apart from this, Hotel value for money


Just returned to mainline China where I am working at moment after our 4 to 5 weekly visit to Hong Kong, so my wife can get her hair cut at Tony. & Guys

We have tried quite a few different hotels now, both Hong Kong and Kowloon side and thought we would give one of the Butterfly hotels a go.

Excellent location amount the hassle and bustle of SOHO and like everywhere in Hong Kong, easy to get about.

We stayed in a Superior room, which for only 2 nights was big enough.

The room was very tidy and very clean as you would expect from a chain, so very pleased

The one big no no for me and my wife was see through glass doors into the on suit, which although it Akers the room look bigger, gives no privacy whatsoever for whoever wants to use the bathroom.

Nw we have been married for nearly 28 years, but something's are still private, so I am afraid I will not be revisiting a Butterfly brand Hotel in the future, for this reason alone.

It is a pity, as we actually liked the hotel and would have considered again on our future visits to Hong Kong

Just cannot understand why anyone would want see through doors on bathroom

Room Tip: If you like piracy in the bathroom, confirm if the bathroom doors are glass and see through.

Thank you so much for sharing your comment with us. First of all, we are truly sorry that the bathroom design has affected your stay in the negative way. In all 5 Butterfly Hotels, we offer guest rooms with different layouts and design. It's most regretful that we were not able to identify your comment during your stay and to offer you a room type that fits your need better.

We totally agree with you that a bathroom with frosted glass door is not for every one. If any of our guests not preferring it, we will surely do our best to arrange different rooms for them immediately in order to provide our guests a comfortable stay.

There is certainly rooms of improvement for us to be more pro-active in identifying our guest's need. Please accept our sincere apology for your experience, and we truly hope you would consider staying with Butterfly again and to restore your faith in us.
