“Good location and friendly staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

I visited this hotel for 2 nights in July 2013. The location was superb. The room was small but sufficient for 2 nights. The air conditioning was great! I am not sure what was happening with the internet - it would work well during the day and early evening and then just stop working at night. The shower door also broke and I had trouble getting items out of my safe. With the exception of the internet, the shower and safe were not big issues that disrupted my stay. I loved the breakfast each morning especially the delicious coffee. The staff was all so friendly - a real treat.

Very cute and comfortable room. Sadly no safe nor bar fridge.

The hotel is a 3 minute walk from where the bus stop is and from the ferry port, only a flight of easy stairs.

Breakfast was good, however, wifi didn't work well in the rooms which is not in line with what they say on their website.

We recently stayed two nights in Bellagio and LOVED Hotel Centrale. It is beautiful, with spacious, clean rooms and the location is perfect. There are wonderful outdoor areas to relax. Their breakfast and cappachinos were delicious!

The best thing about this hotel is the service. It is family run and every member of their family went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. We ran into a couple of problems when we first arrived in Bellagio (our friends had forgotten their passports in Venice, and we realized our flight out of Lugano was so early that we might not be able to get there) and Marcello and his family went above and beyond to help us. He communicated with our hotel in Venice and found a taxi driver friend that was able to pick us up at 4 am so that we could make our flight. Without their help, I'm not sure what we would have done!

Bellagio/Lake Como was one of our favorite spots during our 2 week Italy vacation, and we will definitely stay at Hotel Centrale when we are able to get back to the area.

We recently stayed for 7 nights (whilst attending a wedding locally) at this wonderful hotel in Bellagio. It is a perfectly positioned hotel for the ferries, shops and restaurants. As mentioned before Bellagio is on a hillside and there are some steps to the hotel but the owners are more than happy to help at any time with luggage up and down the steps. Our room was beautifully cleaned every day. Breakfast was very varied with fresh fruits and wonderful coffee. There is small quiet sheltered garden and terrace for guests to enjoy. The owners went the extra step to make their visitors stay welcome. As we were leaving very early for a departure to the airport, we asked for a glass of juice and some bread the night before, so we could have a snack before leaving. One of the owners brought us a tray filled with wonderful breads, cakes, pastries and drinks to have in our room prior to departure. It is small thoughts like this that make a difference and was much appreciated. We would like to keep this hotel a "secret" to ourselves for the future, but the family deserve better and giving this review hopefully allows new visitors to enjoy the family atmosphere at this lovely hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed on the third floor. Room had two windows, with small view of the lake.

We loved our stay at the Hotel Centale. Our room was small but clean and air conditioned. The owners were incredibly nice and helpful, always greeting us with a smile. The location was great, just a minute walk up the steps from the passenger ferries. A little tough with heavy suitcases but not bad at all.

We had a fantastic breakfast, complete with cappuccinos made to order by the owner's son each morning. For only 110 euros per night, it was a fantastic find in Bellagio.

My my friend and i stayed here for 2 nights and loved it, was a minute walk away from the main ferry point and information and all the restaurants. Staff were really helpful and spoke great English. Lake Como is a must for anyone traveling around Italy

We stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Centrale and found it to be one of he best places we stayed our entire trip thru Italy! This family run hotel is so friendly and helpful which in our case was very important as one of us had left their purse at a train station and was working with police station and fed ex to get it back! Clean rooms, nice bathrooms, great breakfast and coffee make for a great stay! Special thanks to everyone their help with the purse situation !
