Hotel Centrale is run by Giacomo, his sons ( Marcello and Michaeli ) and his wife. As we approached we observed a brightly colored "typically rustic Italian" building with a nice garden, in the middle of town. Marcello welcomed us warmly. He then escorted us to our room to assure that we knew how to operate the "double opening" windows, and that we knew how to operate the A/C.
Michaeli makes the cappuccinos, chocolates and espresso in the morning. The breakfast has great variety (cheese, ham, breads, fruit, cereals, and more) and is served in a bright and airy room. Three breakfast tables have a partial lake view, really nice! ! ! Our guest room was spacious, reasonably priced, and the shower is refreshing, and clean.
No lake view, no problem. A 3 minute walk to the Lake Como ferry pier is all you need for access to the entire lake. The family is willing to suggest wonderful restaurants in Bellagio. The family also directed us to the mini market, the pharmacy, and the cosmetics shops, so we felt like "locals." Marcello even ran after us, as we departed, in order to volunteer to carry some of our luggage down the stairs to the ferry pier.
Hotel Centrale is simply a "family" gem! To quote another reviewer "Ah. Giacomo. How you will be missed. "
