Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 July 2009

Family-run, renovated (it has a lift/elevator!!), very clean, good bathroom, aircon, skylight (we were on top floor- the 3rd of 3) which can be covered electronically; welcoming family with great ability to make all feel very welcome. Alll this and the beautiful town of Bellagio and all the easily reached (by ferry) lakeside towns at your doorstep. Free wireless or direct connection (we were just out of reception so the direct connection was fine). Charming patio and garden for relaxation. Highly recommended.

We caught the train from Venice to Milan, then a regional train from Milan to Varenna, & finally a ferry from Varenna to Bellagio. We thought it was hard getting there, but it was much harder to leave this superb hotel after 2 wonderful nights (Euro 110.00 per night). We were warmly greeted and offered a choice of 2 rooms. We chose a room with a balcony overlooking the colurful garden, ''absolutely gorgeous" in the words of the previous reviewer. The room had lovely furnishings, a comfortable bed, and a good bathroom. Airconditioning was included. This hotel is full of character and charm, which totally matches the charm and beauty of Bellagio. The hotel has a lovely setting with a lovely courtyard. Having breakfast in the lovely breakfast room was a treat. The hosts were so warm and friendly.

Coming into Bellagio on the ferry from Varenna was breathtaking. We did the San Martino church walk (from the ferry to the San Martino church took us around 90 minutes at a leisurely place) with superb views our reward.

If you are visiting Italy, do not miss Bellagio. How we would love to return to Bellagio soon and to this very special Hotel Centrale!

I couldnt rave enough about this hotel - it is just charming and gorgeous. Dead central bellagio, essentially you walk off the ferry and just walk straight up the first set of steps and it is halfway up on your left. The rooms were just stunning. I am usually a fan of absolutely modern miminalistic hotels which this is not, however this one was just oozing character and charm, along with being clean & stunning. The rooms are in brilliant condition, and we had a gorgeous sun roof with retractable blind so that you could have sunlight pouring into your room and watch the sky which was fantastic.
Free fast wired internet in the rooms was a plus, there is wireless on the lower floors.
Located close to everything, gorgeous breakfast room & lovely breakfast. Lovely outisde area where you coudl sit and drink wine on a sunny day and the views are stunning needless to say. Despite being told there was no lake view from the hotel, we had some fairly stunning glipses of lake and mountain from our rooms between buildings.

Giacomo and his family continue to excel at Hotel Centrale. Service is kind, nothing is too much trouble, they are warm and welcoming and eager to ensure that your stay with them is enjoyable. The rooms are to the highest standards, fresh linen and towels every day and a thorough clean too, not just a cursory wipe around. If you are not sure what you would like to do in the area, Giacomo is only too pleased to suggest ideas, being honest at the same time about where is good to visit and where isn't. We had gone with teenage children who were treated with the same amount of respect as the rest of us adults which is something that doesn't happen in other places. The Hotel is well positioned between the front and the piazza in Bellagio, its steepish up the steps for those with joint issues but there are plenty of stopping places. Every time we have been to this beautiful part of the world, our experience is made all the more wonderful by the Hotel Centrale so thank you Giacomo and family yet again for helping create more fond memories.

We arrived after a long train/boat journey from Venice to a very warm welcome and were shown to our room (101). I had requested a room with a terrace and it was a lovely flower filled terrace with a view of the lake through the narrow street below.

Giacomo and his family were very helpful and their recommendations for local restaurants were excellent.

Our stay in Bellagio was to celebrate my 50th Birthday and after returning from lunch on the day Giacomo presented us with Prosecco, fruit and a lovely rose which we sat on our terrace and enjoyed with our friends who were also staying at the hotel. Giacomo took a photograph which he has just emailed to me so I'll always have a reminder of the day and our stay in Bellagio.

This is a very lovely family run hotel with excellent and friendly service. Our room was very comfortable and kept spotlessly clean. We would certainly stay here again and can see why it is ranked number one on Tripadvisor.

We showed up with a review from tripadvisor and no reservation at 9 pm on a Sunday night. The owners were very accomodating and within a short time we had a room, advice on where to park the car,and information on a place to have a drink and maybe get a bite to eat. We were settled for the night. The next morning breakfast was very good as we set out to check out the lake.We walked to the ferry and spent the day on the lake taking the ferry all over enjoying the beautiful weather and sights.When we got back to the hotel we asked about a good place to eat and boy did they give us a great choice San Giacomo.Everything was delicious my only advice is get there before 7pm if you do not like to wait the place is small and fills up quickly.The hotel was perfect for the amount of money they charge and like the owner said they have a spoonful view of the lake.We ended up staying 2 nights and would definitely return to this hotel the next time we are in Bellagio..
