Bottom Line

This upper-middle-range property in the heart of busy Causeway Bay is part of a boutique chain of urban hotels with a youthful feel. There's a tram line in front of the hotel for easy access to restaurants and shops, and the Tin Hau MTR station is a two-minute walk away. The 132 guest rooms are clean and comfy with a playful, modern look, and feature multimedia docking stations and free smartphones with 3G data. However, rooms are small and thus have limited furnishings (the desks double as a stand for the flat-screen TVs). Wi-Fi is free throughout, but there's no restaurant or breakfast service, and no extra features. By comparison, nearby Metropark Hotel Causeway Bay Hong Kong typically has similar rates, and offers a host of extras, like a rooftop pool, and a restaurant and bar.

Oyster Hotel Review

Butterfly on Victoria

Scene

Boutique-chain hotel opened in 2013 with bright and trendy public spaces

Butterfly on Victoria, part of a boutique chain of properties, opened in 2013 and still has a newish, trendy feel. The hotel occupies a narrow 26-story building in the heart of busy Causeway Bay, but its lobby offers some relief. Bare and minimalist, it features shiny floors in a pale hardwood, ultra-white ceilings, and an angular wooden unit topped with two iMac computers. The space is light-filled thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, and the white marble reception counter features a tree sculpture covered with butterflies. The hallways leading to the elevators are done up in bright neon lights, and calligraphy by local artist Patrick Leung adds flair to the walls. The hotel's decor has a somewhat youthful vibe, but its location makes it popular with tourists (mainly couples) and business travelers of varying ages.

Rooms

Small guest rooms decorated in artsy modern style with free smartphones

Guest room decor is modern and pretty minimalist, but with a good amount of artsy flair. Simple, pale-wood furniture consists only of bedside tables and long desks topped with 40-inch flat-screen TVs. Floors have black-and-white wavy-striped carpeting, while patterned gray-and-cream wallpaper covers the walls. A mirrored panel behind each bed is painted with a saying in decorative calligraphy, and small butterflies and a rose-shaped pillow top it off. A variety of pillows of differing sizes and levels of firmness are available, too.

Bathroom walls are made of frosted glass and don't always reach the ceiling, which might not suit all guests. Interiors are nicely tiled in light beige, with roomy walk-in showers that feature electronic gauges to regulate temperature. Other fittings include rectangular vessel sinks and large mirrors, and amenities like toiletries and hairdryers available.

All rooms are air-conditioned and have mini-fridges, electric kettles (not in all Superior rooms), safes, multimedia docking stations, and free Wi-Fi. A handy extra is the free 4G smartphone in each room, loaded with a city guide, unlimited data, and free local calls. Executive King Rooms have a few extras: capsule coffeemakers and a selection of bottled water. Rooms are on the small side, with the Superior Rooms covering an area of 160 square feet. The Deluxe Rooms are bigger, with 190 square feet of floor space, while the Executive Rooms are more spacious at 220 square feet.
