Hong Kong (part 1): Butterfly on Prat.

...continued from Hong Kong (prelude): Welcome to HK!

Since my friends are the ones who frequent Hong Kong, I let them pick our hotel.  We stayed in a serviced-residence/boutique hotel called Butterfly on Prat which is in Tsim Sha Tsui, an urban area in Southern Kowloon, Hong Kong.

This is the colorful lobby of the hotel which always smells good whatever time of day. 

A room for two persons in Butterfly on Prat costs us around P18,000/US$400 for 4 days, basically a little less than US$100 per night.  There are a lot of other places that offer lower rates but if you want to be comfortable in fluffy sheets when you sleep at night, I highly suggest this hotel.  Plus, Butterfly on Prat is only a few minutes walk to Harbour City, Nathan Road, The Mass Transit Railway (MTR), and the Star Ferry Terminal.

It's so amusing how there are butterfly-shaped signs on our pillows to distinguish the soft pillows from the firm pillows.

Check out red pillow in the middle of the bed that says "Hug Me! I'm clean".  It reminds me of those signs in Alice in Wonderland like "Eat Me" and "Drink Me".

There's a fridge, hot water kettle, complimentary tea and coffee, bottled water, and yes, a microwave oven. Although we never got to use it during our stay.

There is a spacious closet with a lot of hangers and colorful bedroom slippers but no bathrobes.

The bathroom has a spacious shower area with rain shower head.  Toiletries are complete.. Shampoo, conditioner, body soap, hand soap, shaving kit, toothbrush, toothpaste, and anything you may need during your stay.

The whole hotel has wifi, in the lobby and in the rooms.

Tip for those who plan to take a taxi but don't speak Mandarin or Cantonese, get a pocket flyer from the lobby which has a map going to Butterfly on Prat and other tourist destinations.  Believe me, you'll need it!

Thumbs Up!
Great location (near the MTR, shopping malls, and Star Ferry terminal).
Clean rooms with fluffy pillows and comforters.
Friendly staff.
Bottled water and toiletries are replenished every day.
Wifi in all areas of the hotel.

Thumbs Down!
No room service (food).
No washroom or changing room downstairs so if your flight is early, you can't change if you arrive in Hong Kong before check in time which is at 2pm.

T and I enjoyed our stay in this hotel.  We will definitely stay here if we go to Hong Kong again!
