Stayed here for 3 nights in June at the end of a tour. Like my nine previous experiences residing in Hotel Boston, it was wonderful. I still am thrilled departing the train and walking the short distance down the hill to the hotel to see Lake Maggiore only a block away and the to enjoy the comfortable atmosphere created by...

Stayed 7 nights at the Hotel Boston. Location of the hotel is good as its within easy walking distance of the lake, shops and restaurants. The friendliness and helpfulness you received at Reception depended on who was on duty. The younger staff were very helpful but this cannot be said of all the staff. Ladies, it may be best to...

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 Hotel Boston is set one street back from the lakeside of Lake Maggiore. We had an end room on the top floor which was an additional floor added on a few years ago. 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
