If you don't require a lobby (some walk-in closets are larger than this place's reception area) or much in the way of facilities, this hotel might fit the bill if you can snag a bargain. Rooms are small but colorfully decorated in bright orange or green and come with microwaves (a rarity in Hong Kong hotels). This fast-growing local chain has other sister Butterflies as well, including Butterfly on Wellington with a superb location in Central at 122 Wellington (852/3962-1688) and—my favorite—Butterfly on Hollywood at 263 Hollywood Road in Sheung Wan (852/2850-8899), which plays up its street name with a Hollywood motif. All have free Wi-Fi and lobby computers with free access to the Internet. Although more bare-boned than what you'd expect from a niche hotel, Butterfly has more panache than a box chain.
