If not offered for free please ask for a manager and a Free upgrade may be given to you. Bathrooms are glass and see through. .....better tell your roommates to turn around when anyone...

Located near the ferry terminal to Macau, this property is at the end of the Island Line for the MTR and is another 10 - 15 minutes to the hotel. Rooms and prices are decent for Hong Kong Hotel, note that the front desk is not on the 1st floor.

The Hotel is very well located in Hong Kong Island close to a metro stop as well as tram stop and allows you to go anywhere in HK easily. The reception is not at the entrance of the hotel but at the first floor so keep it in mind in case you don't see anybody at the entrance. There are...

Had a 2 night stay here whilst stopping off in Hong Kong. Very well situated, close to MTR/tram line and local amenities. Rooms were nice and clean. On the smaller side, but to be expected in HK. They provide smartphones in the room which have free local calls and Internet which saved me the roaming costs, nice touch. Only minor...

This is a clean and modern hotel located in a convenient location at a reasonable price. It is near Sai Ying Pun and Sheung Wan MTR station. The local ding-ding (tram) is right behind the hotel.

Staying in Sheung Wan

Neighbourhood Profile
Sheung Wan
Unlike most of Hong Kong’s other popular districts, Sheung Wan welcomes wanderers with an easy-going, relaxed atmosphere. Art galleries are plentiful and boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores – it’s no surprise fashionistas flock to this area. History enthusiasts will be rewarded with sites of beautiful architecture, reflecting Sheung Wan’s past as one of the earliest settlements by British forces. As night falls, the entertainment scene reveals itself to be just as laid back with its private kitchens, speakeasies and underground bars dotted throughout the area. When in Sheung Wan, everyday feels like the weekend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Travelling is rarely all about play there days. There is - usually - a time for work, a time for play and a time to unwind. Sitting right between the bustle of Central and the leisure of Sheung Wan, and two mere blocks from the artsey lower-end of Hollywood Road with a stunning view of the harbour, Butterfly on Waterfront is where you get to enjoy the best of three worlds - the busy one, the happening one and the relaxing one. To fulfill travellers' need for seamless, connected travel experience, the hotel now offers "4G Pocket WiFi Device" to keep your life in sync! Bring WiFi with you around town and stay in touch with the mobile hotspot (unlimited local data) that instantly connects your devices (up to 5 smartphones, tablets or other wireless portable devices) to the Internet anywhere the coverage is available. Straightforward and effortless - this is how travel should be! When you're done exploring the eclectic mix of cafes, shops and private kitchens in this uber-cool, up-and-coming neighbourhood, you might want to take advantage of your proximity to the Macau Ferry Terminal and hop on a boat to Macau to see Asia in an entirely new angle. Or you might want to sit back, relax in our simple and thoughtful interior, and enjoy the infusion of natural light and modern trappings our 90-room hotel offers. From branded amenities, multimedia docking station, free Wi-Fi, free smartphone - think unlimited local calls and 3G data, even a city guide - to 24-hour front desk and ' Local Ambassadors' to help you navigate the city, everything here is designed to encourage a balanced approach to living, working and playing. How well connected are we? - Within 3 minutes walk from Sai Ying Pun MTR subway station - 8-minute taxi ride to the Airport Express Hong Kong Station for direct train connection to Hong Kong International Airport. ... more   less
