Stresa is - as another reviewer posted - the most beautiful town on Lake Maggiore - that we saw anyway, Hotel Boston is a small, family run 3 star hotel just a few minutes walk from the beautiful lake and the charming town centre. We upgraded to a lake view, balcony room (303) and spent some magic moments between trips out, sitting on the balcony just admiring the view and listening to the birds. The room was clean and comfortable, the en-suite shower room looked to be very recently refitted and the only issue was a faulty light that was fixed very soon after we reported it. The staff on reception were friendly and helpful, the maid service faultless and the breakfast waitress (Maria I think) was cheerfulness itself. Nothing seemed to much trouble. My only gripe was that the partition walls were thin and we seemed to be plagued by random noisy Italians who stopped for the occasional night, stayed out until late, then made as much noise as they could when they got back - bring earplugs - we did the tried and tested 'wet toilet paper' home-made efforts and they seemed to work.
