“My return visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

Have this little hotel another try because the location was good for me. Cleaner room this time- no musty smell. Same good front desk service. But please beware as there is a major construction project next door. Jack hammers from 9-7:00 pm. Yikes!! You can't spend that time in the room. You'll go crazy.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is no room service, but you within short walks of a lot of bars and restaurants. The part of Wellington Street is mostly quiet so even on a lower floor the street noise was minimal. The train is close as well as shops and there is a convenience store nearby in case you want to buy soda or beer for the room's fridge. The mattress was firm with was ok with me, but that was the only thing a coworker of mine didn't like.

If you are travelling to Central Hong Kong, I would recommend this as a good option.

We recently travelled to Hong Kong to spend a couple of days exploring the city prior to a cruise.

After extensively researching accommodation options (a mammoth undertaking for a city which seems to have more hotels than China has bicycles) we settled on Butterfly on Wellington.

We weren’t sure what to expect.

Hotel photos can tend to emphasise a property’s strengths and downplay its weaknesses. Our trepidation increased as our taxi slowed on narrow Wellington (mainly to avoid pedestrians who seemed to treat the road as a mall) and stopped outside a modest and nondescript doorway, far removed from the grandiose entrances of the major chains scattered around the island and Kowloon.

The Butterfly begins properly on the first floor, not the ground. A small but elegant reception area is all there is to speak of, other than the lift lobby. Then, like most of the buildings on the island, you go up. And up. And up. The building which houses The Butterfly is old and modification has been kept to a minimum.

Where the Butterfly shines, however, is in decoration. Our room is compact, it is stylishly understated and quiet. Heavy window drapes open to reveal – the building across the road. This is a city on the way up – literally. Expect to see other buildings from your window. What the property lacks in grand vistas it more than makes up for in a cloistered sense of peace. This is a bonus because life outside the property is nothing short of frenetic chaos, cars, taxis, street markets, neon signs, umbrellas (its rainy season) and restaurants – its intense and exciting and wonderful.

A good night’s sleep is assured at the Butterfly. The bed is incredibly comfortable, the pillows are plump. A rain shower head in the bathroom ensure an indulgent drenching and the supplied toiletries are of a very high standard. There is wifi, television and minibar and the rooms décor is rich with dark wood and fabrics.

The staff are lovely and helpful, from check in right through to ordering a taxi (which takes about 3 seconds ) A tip from one staff delivers us to a yum cha restaurant around the corner. It is very clear that we are eating where the locals eat. We assess that we are the only tourists in the place (which is very busy) and we are treated to some of the best duck and pork buns Ive ever tasted.

A large part of the appeal of The Butterfly became increasingly apparent the longer we were there. We discovered that its location was ideal – located close to the mid level escalators that delivered us to the Soho district packed with bars and eateries (brilliant) yet within walking distance of the harbour via a series of raised walkways and the main shopping precincts of Hong Kong island.

What began as a mission to find cost effective pre-cruise accommodation turned out to be one of the highlights of our entire holiday.
If you want to immerse yourself in all that Hong Kong island has to offer, The Butterfly on Wellington is an excellent mid-priced option that will provide outstanding value for money and a quintessential Hong Kong experience. I can highly recommend it and I will definitely stay again.

First time there and was very pleased with their service and friendly staff especially their reception staff. Stayed in their Executive room, was decent size and clean. Their housekeeping did a great job! Hotel very convenient and nearby to eateries and shops. Subway is also walking distance. Special thanks to Cherrie for giving us useful tips and information of places to visit and eat. Will definitely return to stay there again.

This is my first time to Hong Kong and this Hotel was great and I was happy during my stay. Specially thank you for the nice reception staff: Michael, Molly, Matthew and Charrie, some of them i did not remember what's their name but all of them was very kind, helpful and gave me a warmest stay in here such as my home. The hotel location was great it was heart of the city and you can find everything around. Anyway next time when I come to Hong Kong I must stay here again!!!!

Spent four nights at Butterfly on Wellington. Excellent service and amenities. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Tidy rooms, perfect location for work (Central) or play (rugby)

When I'm in Hong Kong I always try to stay in this hotel. It's location is perfect for getting out and about and also easy to get back to if you've had a good night out on the town.
The rooms are all good, comfortable and clean. This is a great boutique hotel which offers an oasis of calm amid the noise and crowds of Hong Kong.
Can't recommend highly enough
