Firstly, our air conditioning wasn't just leaking but pouring down the walls and over the light switch. We asked about this and were fobbed off for four days. The restaurant staff were exceptionally rude! The only reason anything was done (for our final night) was because we spoke to one of the waiters who actually was the only person to... More

I forfeited my last internet booked night and left a day early....admittedly not just a decision influenced by the hotel. However, last impressions stick - my last evening walk through reception to pass a tourist muttering unhappiness to himself, I don't know details but no staff in attendance. Then next morning 6am leaving.....through a front door with glass shattered, looked... More

Returned to the Hotel Centrale following a stay last June, everyone here is helpful, most staff have a fairly good grasp of the English language. I had room 111 which appeared to have recently been re decorated. Our room had a small fridge and tea making facilities which was very handy and a lift is available if required, food still... More

Having just returned from lake garda I can say that hotel centrale is in a perfect location. The hotel staff were polite and efficient in replying to our questions prior to our arrival and emailed a map to point out the location from the bus stop (the map looked confusing as the end of the arrow pointed to the mountains...

If visiting Lake Garda, Riva Del Garda is the location to stay in but don't fly into Milan it takes a good 2 1/2 hours to transfer to the hotel. Whilst the hotel is ideally situated we don't rate it as a 3 star even if the Italian tourist board does because generally it needs money spending on it, no... More

Fantastic views from lake view rooms. Our room (4th floor) was very clean and quite spacious but no bath just a shower and bidet. Towels changed daily. Food was better and more plentiful than expected (had read previous reviews). Great position on square overlooking the lake. No actual bar but outside restaurant tables pleasant to watch the world go by.... More

Enjoyed a wonderful week at the Centrale. Second time booking with Italian Getaways who were fantastic from start to finish. Flew into Milan Bergamo airport, which did result in a 2 1/2 hr transfer, but mostly picturesque along the lake. I agree the hotel is a bit tired but to me it added to the Italian charm. We were allocated... More

We have just spent a week at this hotel, we travelled with Thomson and were delighted with the location and view over the ferry terminal. As Thomson guests, we were told to choose 3 courses from the a la carte dinner menu which proved to be more than adequate as the portions were large. The buffet breakfast had a good... More
