The pain level all depends on how you go about it. If you try to builda GUI from scratch, it will be very painful. If you use a toolkit, thenit's pretty close to working with Swing. WxPython is the only one I've used, so Ican't give you a "best one". I can say that going from Swing to wxPython wasn't too difficult.
Here is the python wiki page with a bunch of the different ways to makecross-platform GUIs, if you want to just look at a couple.

Subject: How is GUI programming in Python?
I've always had an interest in Python and would like to dabble in it
further. I've worked on a few very small command line programs but
nothing of any complexity. I'd like to build a really simple GUI app
that will work across Mac, Windows, and Linux. How painful is that
going to be? I used to be really familiar with Java Swing a few years
ago. I imagine it will be similar.
Next, what would you say is the best framework I should look into?
I'm curious to hear opinions on that.
