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.

My wife and I spent the first ten days of May, 2016 in Stresa, staying at the Hotel Boston. We could not have done better. First of all, the price is very good for such a terrific location.

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

We ended up at Hotel Boston after the hotel we had originally booked moved us here when they alleged water problems. I think they overbooked. Anyway, the hotel was nice. No complaints. Room had a nice view of Lake Maggiore. The hotel is about equal distance between the ferry terminal and train station. A short walk to the lake promenade.... More

Spent a week at the Boston in late September. Good location and reasonably well appointed. Staff are excellent - knowlegable and very helpful. We had a top floor room which was adequate, but a bit cramped...and there was no drawer space meaning t shirts and undies were on open shelves in the bedside cabinets - a first for us !... More
