The staff really made our 2 night stay here a marvellous experience. Special mention to Cedric. He was so helpful, hard working and always cheerful. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Room was on the small side but fine for a couple of nights. Our only criticism was that getting to the hotel from the station would have been much more pleasant if the hotel could have provided transport, for which we would have gladly paid a reasonable fee, rather than using local taxis which were ridiculously expensive for the distance. Too far to walk with luggage in the intense heat…It was the perfect location for the opera at the Puccini Festival. Highly recommended.

Stayed here in November for a short break.
The staff are amazing especially Francesco who was very helpful with planning our day trips.
The room was very clean and had everything you could want, really hot shower and good internet.
It had beautiful open aspect views of the lake which was a real treat.
Breakfast was first rate and the service extremely friendly.
Would definitely recommend this to anybody wanting to visit the area. Close to Pisa,Lacco and Florence.
Thank you to all the staff for making this a fantastic stay

Very nice small hotel for just a small stay. It is well placed in front of the lake, people are friendly however they aren't prepared to host families. I went with my parents and 1year old son, they didn't have a crib for my son. The rooms are clean and small. We just stayed for the night so it was enough for us. Worth the visit for the lake and its surroundings but not worth it a family.

It is difficult to rate anything as low, but circumstances do tolerate such a rating.
During this difficult time, when hotels and tourist attractions have reopened, we all need to follow the advice of care and attention to detail. Most hotels have been closed for a painfully long time and, when reopening have adhered to thorough cleaning.

Sadly and regrettably, this is not the case for this hotel. Grubby and tired. Not in any sense has there been a deep clean of this place. But the worst part is that the rooms have spas/jacuzzi which of course need even more attention to cleanliness. When booking the hotel and again upon arrival, I did ask if the rooms and spas were thoroughly disinfected, and had the reassurance of the staff and owner. This was not the case, as after slightly overfilling the spa, the jets bubbled and released faeces into a scum around the corner surface. Unfortunately not immediately noticeable...... The 'grime' was at the very top of the spa seal, difficult to see at first, but shocking after.

The point is made... However, when asking a member of staff to view both the bathroom and the spa, I was told that I am too fussy in respect of the bathroom and, that the spa problem was 'not there yesterday' Taking a towel and wiping the top edge of the spa, it was easy to demonstrate what had built up - the white towel displayed the colour and degree of the problem.

Had there been equal shock/surprise and maybe a little regret from the staff, it might have helped the situation, but this was not forthcoming and really, no additional time could be wasted trying to make this serious point.

We had tickets for the opera and wanted to have a meal nearby the famous open-air theatre beforehand. We went there a day before to choose a restaurant and make a booking. All other restaraunts on the square were fully booked even a day in advance apart from Butterfly. Now we know why.
The people on the hotel reception were nice, they took the booking for 19:30 (wrote it in a big ledger) and even promised to make arrangements for one vegetarian meal. However when we arrived to have our dinner on the next day, things started to get wrong.
Firstly, there was no sign of our booking. We were sat in the garden area after some time at two rickety tables. And then we started to get a feeling that all four of us were completely transparent or simply invisible to the waiting staff.
This was not a good feeling as although we left plenty of time before the start of the show, minutes were ticking by quite quickly.
We got our food eventually, and we were not late for the opera, but Butterfly made the beginning of that very special experience somewhat underwhelming.
The food was mediocre and overpriced.
Perhaps the hotel should just concentrate on the hotel side of their business, and stop taking visitors in the restaurant, since they do not provide a good service at all.

We booked Hotel Butterfly through Booking.com several months ago, we were going to see La Boheme, a joint Christmas and 75th birthday treat. Because of a mistake by the hotel-acknowledged in an email by Booking.com we ended up having a standard room for two nights and the Aphrodite suite for the third night of our stay. We flew into Pisa airport and as we were on a budget caught the bus to Torre Del Lago centre at around 1.30pm after a 4.30am start to the day. We guessed it was a bit of a walk to the hotel, there were no taxis around so my husband phoned the hotel and asked if the receptionist could call us a taxi. She told us it was only a 5 minute walk along the road. In fact it was 1.6km and 20 minutes by Google’s reckoning. We had luggage, it was 30 degrees and we were tired, not the best start to our dream weekend. We later discovered a bus went along the street regularly, in fact it passed us. We finally made it, tired and hot and was shown to our room, 104. It was small but had a comfortable bed, big bathroom with a fabulous shower and, most importantly quiet and effective air conditioning. The location of the hotel is perfect, opposite the lake, a few steps away from the Puccini museum and the opera venue. There are hourly boat trips around the lake, we had one of these and felt more relaxed. There is an excellent cafe at the front of the hotel which we enjoyed a lot, friendly service and nice cakes. The hotel restaurant was also excellent with a wonderful view of the lake, we were talked through the menu by the friendly and efficient waiter, the wine waiter was also great,the food delicious. Breakfasts with a limited choice were taken in the restaurant which looked different in the morning, someone has a good eye for design, we liked the shabby chic furniture. Again the waiter was very friendly and efficient. The Aphrodite suite was quirky, once again a comfortable bed and excellent air conditioning. The hotel seemed to fail when it came to the reception staff, I asked if it would be possible to post a postcard from the hotel, holding it up so the receptionist could see, she had no idea, said the kiosk across the way may be able to post it for me, in fact we discovered a post box there. We had a wonderful few days in Torre Del Lago and spent less than we expected so asked at reception how much a taxi back to Pisa airport would cost. We were told 30 euros so asked her to order us one for the following afternoon. When the taxi arrived he told us 80 euros, very annoying and embarrassing, if we’d known we would have caught the bus back. An upsetting beginning and end to an otherwise great weekend.

We booked through Booking.com for the opera, it’s so close to the opera. The hotel is small and while I would say it’s a three star hotel, it’s very clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful. We had a standard room which was modern with a very impressive shower. Clean sheets and pillow cases everyday. It was an ideal hotel for the opera and would have no problem staying again.

We were looking for a hotel close to Livorno (Tuscany) to catch a ferry to Corsica. This place moreover was also close (15 min) to Pisa where I hadn't set foot in years.
We did not expect too much but we were pleasantly surprised. A very comfortable room, and pleasant staff. Good air conditioning, easy parking, working wi-fi. Also the room was well insulated as with windows closed we did not hear the noise of the party downstairs.

Finally, this hotel is in Torre del Lago on the banks of lake Massaciuccoli which must be a well kept secret since it is so close to the sea, it is easy to overlook.
Why the name of the hotel ? Well, the famous composer Puccini (Madame Butterfly, Tosca, la Bohème) had his house a hundred yards away and there is now a yearly opera festival in a nearby open-air theater.
