“Beautiful and quiet place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

The hotel is located right in front a beautiful lake and the street is a dead end, so unless you're there during a big event, it's a relaxing place to stay with a couple of good restaurants around. The staff is nice and helpful and the hotel is clean, although the decoration needs quite a bit of work. The bed wasn't very comfortable either, but we had view on the lake, so it was still pleasant. The beaches are not very far by car.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2009

My husband and I spent three days at the Hotel Butterfly in Torre del Lago Italy near Puccini's Villa. The hotel was clean, comfortable and the view from our room/terrace overlooking the lake was wonderful. We awoke the gentle sounds of the lake and water foul. The breakfast was delicious.. meats, cheeses, breads, pastries, cereals, coffees and more. The manager was very helpful and welcoming. We had a wonderful, relaxing time and hope to return soon.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2007

This is a really nice, unpretentious hotel in a delightful location next to a large lake just north of Pisa. As police restrict access to the lakeside area, it is extremely quiet and upmarket. There are 2 classy restaurants very close to the hotel.

The hotel staff were all very pleasant and courteous and the room was clean and of average size. We had a balcony with a view over the lake.

We stayed only 2 nights and took the half-board option. Although the menu, from which one has to select some hours before dinner, was very limited and appeared unexciting, the meals were in fact delicious and the service in the quiet restaurant was excellent. If staying longer, the half-board option might become a bit boring, especially as soup appears to be minestrone each evening. Some of the wines are very reasonably priced and we had a very good Sardinian semi-sparkling for only €8.00.

The hotel was very quiet when we stayed on a Saturday and Sunday in early June. During the annual Puccini festival in July and August it is of course fully booked.
