Rooms are on the small side but we had a balcony and great views of the lake and Borromeo islands (remembering that this hotel isn't... More

The Boston Hotel, situated in the centre of Stresa, is a budget hotel which has a few issues that prevent it from being a place you might want to return to. Check-in and Reception. The reception staff at the Boston are generally welcoming, friendly and helpful. This especially goes for their young receptionist Jessica, who was certainly the jewel in... More

Stresa is a great place to visit and still reflects some of the grandeur of its 19th century past. Hotel Boston is excellently situated, a few minutes walk from the station and the Lake shore. The staff were helpful and friendly and the breakfast well up to standard. Our room had a balcony and a view over the lake to... More

Stayed at the Hotel Boston in Stresa for 1 week in mid September,and overall opinion was that it was difficult to say that it was anything other than average in many aspects. We found that although it was close to the lake it was also close to the main road,so be prepared for traffic noise.The hotel was clean,but the main... More

We had two couples and two rooms on the third floor with balconies and views to the Lake. The setting was quiet and safe. The rooms were quite comfortable and breakfasts were good. The hotel is situated a block from the main boulevard along the lake, making it a good place to walk from, to the town center, ferryboat, etc.... More

Spent just one night here in August on our way from Switzerland to the Italian coast. The hotel was lovely. Easy to find, and we managed to get a free parking space on the same road as the hotel. The room was more than adequate, we had a triple room, which had loads of space. The bathroom was lovely and... More
