Stayed here 3 nights. Had a lovely room (4th floor) with a balcony and view of the lake over the rooftops of the buildings in front. Staff were friendly. Paid for off street parking but didn't need to as always parks outside. Easy stroll into town along the beautiful lakeside. Easy walk from the railway station too. Room was big... More

The room was good with a lovely modern shower room and super views of the lake depite being behind the La Palma Hotel. The hotel is... More

The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from both the railway station and the lake shore, so very convenient for boat trips and train transfers. We had a room on the top floor with a lake view balcony. The room was simply furnished but clean and comfortable. The breakfast each morning was fine, with a fairly standard spread on the... More

I returned from a 5 night stay at the Hotel Boston yesterday and found it a bit disappointing, the breakfast consisted of a buffet containing a yogurt pot, bread,two cereal options, cheese, ham, and croissants prefilled with marmalade, it would have been nice to have a toaster or some fruit. We also opened a strawberry jam to find it full... More

We were a party of four staying in two rooms for three days at the beginning of June. The Boston is ideally situated and a clean, well run establishment with highly efficient and friendly staff. 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
