The Butterfly on Hollywood Boutique Hotel was a bit of a shock to me. I had no idea I was going to enter a "theme" hotel: Hollywood USA. The hotel is fairly small so there are only a half dozen rooms, or so, on each floor. The hallways are long and dark with photography lighting umbrellas as lights in the hallways. Hollywood trivia posters cover these walls. A little tacky -- as was my room that had little butterflies on the pillows (to follow that part of the hotel name theme) and mirrors running across the walls that are made to look like film strips. I was "upgraded" to a room with larger windows (the largest of which gave me good privacy and overlooked a park, below) but i had a double bed that was comprised of two single beds put together. The beds were made up with sheets, as two single beds. So, I actually ended up sleeping in a small single bed rather than undo the sheets of the other bed. This is not really a big deal but it is not optimum if you are travelling as a couple. Also, the carpet in my room was old and dirty-looking. The walls and floors looked like they had better days, too. None-the-less, for the special last minute price of $140USD this hotel room was an excellent deal in Hong Kong. The room, in the end, was fine as long as you do not care about these things. If you do, though, - this may not be the place for you. The hotel is situated perfectly right on the outskirts of Central, Sheung Wan, and Soho - a very good spot, indeed. There are many local restaurants that open early for a typical HKG breakfast and if this is not your thing then there are couple of coffee shops nearby where you can get your morning coffee or tea and scone or muffin...

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room and was at the end of the hall - I may not have had neighbours but in any c...

We chose this hotel mainly for location and the good deal we were offered, and can really recommend it. The rooms are fairly small, but this is Hong Kong remember. And the most is made of the space available to provide comfortable, well-appointed rooms. We were in a deluxe double and there was enough space to store the luggage two people needed for a month-long holiday. If you intend to spend all your time in the hotel room this isn't the place for you, but we were out and about most of the time, and were very happy with our choice for the three days spent in buzzing Hong Kong. The hotel doesn't offer breakfast, but there are two little bars serving all-day breakfast just round the corner, and the friendly staff gave us a really good recommendation for authentic Chinese food just 10 minutes from the hotel.

Spent 2 nights at this hotel, having stayed at 2 other hotels in HKG during my trip.

The Butterfly on Hollywood was the best I stayed in, particularly thanks to the extremely lovely and friendly staff.

The rooms are quite funky although as is typical in HKG, a bit on the small side.

The bed was really comfy ( again, the other places I stayed had the most unbelievably hard beds!) and the location is fantastic. Sheung Wan is a really great spot, with lots of places to eat, drink, visit in the local area.

All in all, had a really great stay, and again must give a major shout out to the lovely staff who ensured a good hotel, became GREAT! :-)

I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights as part of a 9 night trip to Hong Kong. On arrival we were allocated a room on the 5th floor, we had booked a deluxe queen room with a double queen bed as our preference. The rooms are tiny although this was expected they have very little space to move, if you were a solo traveler you could get by, but having two people and almost two weeks worth of clothing it is tight, there is a small space to hang clothing with 5 hangers, no draws at all in the whole room, we resulted to living out of our suitcases on the floor, we had to request a luggage rack to try and create more space. We spent one night on the 5th floor, we complained as we had two twin beds pushed together with a mattress topper to give the impression of a double bed and the noise was unbelievable. I have never stayed in such a noisy hotel, walls paper thin. I felt like I was part of next doors telephone conversation. The taps/showers was also very noisy, the last/first shower of the day waking me at 0300hrs. We were moved to the top floor (25) which at least had the correct bed, the noise was ever so slightly better but only because there is no one above you, I was woken every night without fail by either people talking, taking a shower at silly times or using the lift. The free wifi was painfully slow. The showers were awful, either cold, luke warm or scalding hot, no temperature in between. To move the control 1mm would cause a massive temperature rise. Would I stay here again, no. Would I recommend it to anyone, no. It's only saving grace is its location. My wife has stayed at this hotel twice previously and since the hotel has been taken over by new owners basic amenities have been take away. The whole atmosphere of the hotel has become tacky.

Room Tip: 25th floor

We are very sorry to hear that your recent visit was not as enjoyable as we hoped. It was unfortunate that we were not proactive enough to understand your further comment and expectations when we arrange the room change for you. We believe we are capable to make your experience much better if we have arranged an upgrade to Business Room for you which is larger in size and also offer more traditional wardrobe as well as better space for storage. We also appreciate a lot your comments on other area, we will definitely pay more effort on monitoring and reviewing each of our guest room, and to ensure all of them are meeting our hotel brand's standard properly.

Thanks a lot for your valuable feedback. We truly hope to have another chance to serve you again in the near future and to regain your confidence in our hotel brand.

The hotel is located in "the center" of Hongkong-island. The lack of an own restaurant is being compensated by nurmerous Cafés and restaurants nearby.The staff is friendly and willing to help.
The rooms are clean but extremely small. Besides the small surface there is hardly inough space to hang up your clothes.

Room Tip: Rooms with "Garden"-view are quieter.
