Hotel Boston is a nice hotel with excellent location - near train station, lake front, and town centre. Modern rooms/bathrooms. Nice and clean. Good breakfasts. One slight negative is that because it is a family run hotel, perhaps, the reception staff don't seem as professionally trained as other receptionists at other hotels we stayed in. All in all we are... More

The Hotel Boston lived up to its trip advisor reviews and did not disappoint. It's basic, clean, handy for the center of Stresa and the lake is under 5 minutes away. We had a room with partial lake views which was a glorious sight. Breakfast was very good and the hotel proprietors are very friendly and helpful. I would not... More

I've stayed here several times for business, and enjoy the central location, 5 minute walk from city center. I recommend booking a double room on the higher floors (3 level or 4) as they are much more spacious in comparison to the single rooms. The hotel front desk staff is delightfully charming, especially Roberta. When my deck shade wasn't working... More

The hotel is close to the lake and the centre. But it is really old and really needs to be refurbished. We had booked 3 rooms for our family holiday and they were all very old, and very dirty (especially the bathrooms). The isolation is extremely bad and we could hear everything that was happening in the room next to... More

We really enjoyed our stay in Hotel Boston. Staff is very friendly and will be happy to help you out find your way in the city. We had a lake view room and the view was stunning, even though the hotel is not upfront the lake. The room was a bit small but it was very clean and bright, with... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights at the start of a whistle stop, six day tour of the three major lakes in Northern Italy. We looked around for ages with the primary criteria of a lake view. We decided on the Hotel Boston as a compromise on the lakeside room compared to cost, and this fitted the... More

The hotel Boston is a very comfortable hotel with a very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms on the top floor offer the best views of the lake although they may be smaller than the ones below. Like most hotels, the Boston includes breakfast in the morning but it could be improved by providing fresh fruit and espresso/cappuccino.

We were looking for a reasonably priced place for 3 nights before driving south. Having stayed in the 'posh' hotels on the lake shore in the past we wondered if this would be a big disappointment. Not so! 3rd and 4th floor rooms have a small balcony with lake views. 2 minutes walk to the lake if that. 4 minutes... More
