“Guests that stay at Hotel Fortunella are Fortunate Indeed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We stayed in room 401 for two weeks from 11 -25 June 20014. Everything about this hotel is first class, and deserves at least a four star rating. The welcome we received from the manager, Salvatore was so warm and friendly, we were put at ease immediately. Our room was so spacious and comfortable, it had large balcony, with a view of the sea on one side and mountains to the other. The bathroom had a walk in shower, basin, toilet and bidet. Towels were of a very high quality and were changed daily. The bed linen was changed every other day, and again of good quality. The room was kept spotlessly clean by two young ladies, who were so cheerful and friendly, they wished my wife a very happy birthday as they saw her cards. They also gave us Italian lessons, which was great fun.
Without a doubt, the star of the show was the food at this hotel. Breakfast was a help yourself continental breakfast, but you could boil your own eggs or order scrambled or fried from the kitchen. We have stayed in 4 star hotels, where the breakfasts on offer did not come close in terms of quality and choice. However, this was only a prelude to the fabulous dinner we were served each evening in the lovely restaurant, where you were allocated a table for your entire stay, a nice touch. The cooking was done by Salvatore's Mama and Papa, who are food geniuses. There was a buffet, which you helped yourself to a delicious selection of dishes, such melon with parma ham, prawns, home made meat balls to name but a few. The second course was either, home made pasta, risotto or soup. If you go, please try the tuscan green peas soup, its the best soup we have ever tasted. Then it was a choice of fish or meat, again it was so fresh and tasty, and finally a surprise dessert. Some reviews have indicated that this course is mostly ice cream and fruit. We did not find this at all, each evening was different and divine. So nice to be served at the table, rather than having a buffet for each course. We had the added bonus of being waited on by the lovely Vanessa, such a delight, both in efficiency and personality. She is a real asset to the hotel. To sum up the food, we felt like we were eating out in a fine dining restaurant each night.
We can not recommend the Fortunella highly enough, if there was a problem, and I stress there were very few, Salvatore sorted them out immediately, and always with a smile.
The location of the hotel is great, only a 5 minute stroll to the most beautiful beach and very central for visiting Pisa and Lucca, 3 euros each way by bus. Ask Salvatore, and he will print you out a time table. So if you want a fabulous hotel in a wonderful location, then look no further than the Fortunella. Go you will not regret it. Thanks Salvatore and all the team, we will see you soon.

I went there with my girlfriend and we had a really nice holiday!
The food and the service has been perfect.
The hotelroom was cleaned every day and we got new towels.
We will book this hotel in the future again.

Recently returned from a wonderful stay at Fortunella. Standards very high and you instantly feel the homely atmosphere of this family run hotel. Mamma & Papa cook the excellent Italian food.Salvatore & Grazia very attentive and friendly and efficient . it was lovely to be greeted every day with smiling faces and special thanks to our charming waitress Leila who was always smiling and never forgot the pepper!! great location & well located for local buses to villages&Pisa & Lucca and so cheap e.g 6.80 euros return to Lucca. Salvatore very kindly opened restaurant earlier for us for breakfast on day of departure . A bit more variety in packed breakfast I am sure would be appreciated but this is a minor detail. Long may these family hotels continue. Fortunella is a gem of a hotel with great service.

This was our second stay at the wonderful Hotel Fortunella and it did not disappoint. Standards were still as high, an exceptionally clean hotel, with very friendly and helpful staff and a wonderful homely feel. All the staff were always on hand for any help you needed and Layla the waitress was so lovely and always had a friendly smile. The Fortunella is excellently situated for easy access to Pisa, Lucca, etc. The food was very good and we give our compliments to the Chef. The staff were always on hand and very attentive. The Fortunella may not be as handsome or striking as other larger hotels in the area, however, we personally feel this hotel is by far much superior and would highly recommend this little gem. We would like to thank Salvatore and his staff for their hard work and great service which gave us such a fabulous holiday.

the staff were friendly and spoke good english.the hotel was very clean.it was on a main road,good for buses but not so good for noise.lucca&pisa could be reached by bus.i would stay there again if i was in the area.the food was good,especially if you like pork&fish.the pasta dishes were excellent as you would expect in italy.if you are on the 4th floor the lift only goes to 3rd floor,there is no porter service so you have to take your cases up the stairs yourself.if you have an early start and miss breakfast,the packed lunch is poor,do your own.apart from this i would recommend it.if they could put those 2 things right i would give full marks.

Room Tip: if you dont mind taking your cases up 2 lots of stairs room 402 has a wonderfull balcony.room 307 wh...

I spent a week at the Fortunella in August. As a lady travelling alone, the hotel staff were very welcoming, caring and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them. I stayed in a single room which was very comfortable, quite spacious and spotlessly clean - it was cleaned every day. The food was delicious and typically Italian. The starter buffet was excellent with so much choice. The location is ideal, a few minutes walk to the beach and also to the bus stops from which most places are easily reached.
I had a very enjoyable time and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.
