“The Albergo Butterfly Is Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

the Butterfly Hotel is alright. It's not great but it is okay for a night and that was all we needed. We were in town for the premier of the Puccini festival for 2013 (guests of Maestro Brott - a masterful Canadian Conductor). The rooms are basic. It is extremelt difficult to book a room (luckily Maestro Brott booked our's for us). but that said, it is a clean, comfortable and picturesque spot to stay. It is right next to the Puccini Museum. I t is nice spot to stay. You may wish to stay in Viareggio and come down for a visit but if you are going to the Puccini Festival there is no better choice than the Albergo Butterfly.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Ultimately this place was a disappointment, the "welcome" was like a slap in the face with a wet flannel, absolutely no effort to explain where anything was, arrangements for breakfast etc. The breakfast itself was a shambles, a flask of coffee and another of warm milk, if you got there 10 minutes after it started you had no chance. No milk for the cereal, and plates and glasses had to be scavenged from other tables, a member of staff would deliver a couple of croissants but only after a long wait. I did see other guests getting fresh coffee and plates of cheese and ham but if this was an option it was never explained to us. The room was no more than OK, dead insects in the light fittings, more squashed mosquitoes on the wall and a calendar from 2007!
On the positive side the room was quiet, aircon good and the view over the lake was superb. Apart from the breakfast we were not encouraged to eat or drink at the Butterfly so I can't comment on that, but there are good restaurants nearby. The beaches locally are excellent, just travel a couple of miles in a straight line from the hotel, easy parking and good choices.
Most of the problems we encountered were due to a lack of staff, one man seems to have to do the lot. We only got the room cleaned when we asked for it and the public areas were not swept in the 3 days we were there. Shame a bit of effort and it could be wonderful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

We stayed here for 5 days in August. We chose this hotel as it was only a stones throw from the open air theatre where we had tickets for performance which was part of the Puccini festival. The hotel is basic but clean. We had a triple room which was a good size. The air-con was a godsend. The staff were helpful and friendly although a bit chaotic. We had breakfast as part of our deal this comprised of coffee or tea, some juice and a couple of pastries, how ever we found this adequate. The views over the lake are wonderful this is a very quiet part of Torre del lago if you want something more lively you need to be at beach or marina. I would recommend this hotel and I am planning a return trip.

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.

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.
