From 2nd to 6th of June we stayed at the Hotel Boston. We arrived about 11 o'clock and were greeted by Christina the proprietor. She, as all the staff, is most friendly, helpful and efficient. Our room (405) was ready. We had a good view, though not an uninterrupted view of the lake and the Borromean gardens on the lake.
The room was always cleaned to a high standard. The lady who helped at breakfast always greeted you with a smile. Whoever was on reception was attentive and willing to help. When discussing the options for our return to Malpensa airport, Christina's daughter booked our travel with the SAF bus, which must be booked in advance.
Although there is no bar or restaurant, there is an elegant lounge where you can sit and read if you wish. We did not miss these facilities as there are so many good bars, restaurants, gelaterie and places of interest in Streas that you want to discover. You are not paying for facilities that you do not use.
The main function of a hotel for us is the quality of the bed. Ours was most comfortable, such that the first morning we overslept.
The hotel is on a quiet street, about 150 yards from the lake and most places can easily be reached on foot. The railway station is about 200 yards away and so it is handy if you are taking the train to Switzerland or Milan.
We enjoyed both our stay in Streas and in the Hotel Boston.
