Many criticize the harem genre of anime for its overly formulaic approach and execution. And Ladies vs. Butlers will probably not change the opinions of these critics, since practically every convention common in harem anime is crammed into this show.

The premise behind Ladies vs. Butlers is simple yet predictable. The main character, Hino Akiharu, attends a school for upper-class ladies that is also dedicated to instructing maids and butlers how to function in high-class society. The story basically details Hino interacting with the various girls at the school and the various ecchi situations he gets himself into. The majority of this read more

I'm just gonna get the obvious stuff out of the way first. Ladies versus Butlers is an ecchi harem comedy that does little to break the chain of "we don't need a story as long there are boobies" shows that we see in shows of this genre. Almost all the characters fall perfectly within some set archetype, and don't really see anything in the way of character development. Also, this show has more of these archetypes than I think I've ever seen in one place, as well all the gags you'd expect in this genre.

Despite this, I still enjoyed this series quite a bit , read more

Ladies vs. Butlers is a typical ecchi comedy, which pretty much sticks to the formula and includes all the standard elements without doing anything that makes it stand out. It's not particularly bad, but then it's not particularly good either. Expect lots of nudity and a few hilarious moments, but no real redeeming qualities otherwise.

Story: 4

A school designed specifically to reinforce the hereditary social hierarchy. If you're from an upper class family, you come here to learn how to be prim and proper. If you're from a servant class family, you come here to learn how to be properly subservient to read more

Recommendations

Both shows have a harem style plot (or lack thereof) and have girls pretending to be butlers. There is also a similarity between Saikyou Tomomi and Kanade Suzutsuki in that they are both "S" type character who are out to ruin the protagonist's day. Though the comedies differ in setting and character backgrounds, the style are somewhat similar. 
main character becomes the butler of three female masters and he and his sister work with 2 other maids and butlers. The mistresses all tease him about his innocence with seductive advances. Likewise, in both shows: the main characters are trained to be ideal butlers, are full of ecchiness and fan service, and they are both clear cut harems. 
Similarities:

Both involves girl in the higher echelons and guy in the lower class of the school's hierarchy.

Both involves childhood friends attending the same school.

Both have the same awkward situation where the main character has a bad start.

Both have the same harem, school, romance and ecchi genre.

Dissimilarities:

In one anime the girl's school uniform is way too hot for the girls, while in the other anime their school uniforms makes them girls look like grannies.

One has an extra action genre while the other has comedy.

One started as an eroge game, while  read more 
Same producer, ecchiness, and character similarities 
Both of them got butlers, maids and arrogant masters lol :D but Ladies vs Butlers is ecchier than Hayete no Gotoku so if ur crazy for ecchi you won't be finding what u want that much.But they are good animes so if u didn't watch one of them go for it :P 
Similar Harem story... The main protagonist is involved with high class rich girls in a harem mix...

Both stories involve the guy transferring to the Rich School and getting involved with multiple girls both popular and the innocent... But there are more girls involved with the guy on Ladies versus Butlers! than on Princess Lover!.

Both involve a witty/smart guy which is dissolved on the funny circumstances of the story.

Difference is that, Princess Lover! can also get into serious mode while Ladies versus Butlers! is more comedic.
