“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We very much enjoyed our short stay at the Hotel Centrale. The service was outstanding, the room was very nice, and we loved the hotel's location.
We arrived late in the morning. Michele was on duty and offered us something we were glad to accept - ice cold fruit drinks. Afterward, he did something we weren't expecting; he showed us rooms on the first and third floor and let us pick which one we wanted to stay in. We opted for a very nice first floor courtyard room.
Our room was well appointed, the bathroom looked new, and the air conditioning was working fine; a welcome relief from being out in the hot sun. While the Hotel Centrale doesn't offer lake views it offers a great location in the heart of Bellagio. You're surrounded by restaurants and shopping - two things Bellagio offers in abundance.
Breakfast was in an attractive sun room located just off the small lobby. We had a nice choice of fruits, yogurt, cereal, breads and juices. When we were ready to leave Michelle answered our questions about boarding the train in Varenna and then offered to help us carry our bags down the steps. We appreciated his thoughtfulness but said that wasn't necessary. But, he insisted. He happily took my wife's luggage and we all walked down the steps to the downtown harbor area.
Would we stay here again? Absolutely. This is the kind of small hotel that treats its guests like family. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the Hotel Centrale and would recommend it to other visitors contemplating a stay in beautiful Bellagio.

Room Tip: Ask for a courtyard room. The first floor room we stayed in offered a very pleasant view. Plus, we l...

We can echo the views of other reviewers, this hotel is very clean and the the service from the family team running it is very friendly and helpful.

Don't expect ultra modern Italian style, but the TV and wifi work well, with personal service to ensure internet connection was up to scratch [they put an extra wifi extender in our room to help us! ]

Well located, as others have written but other hotels must have better views of the lake, something we knew when booking. It is possible the best view is of Bellagio from the lake, not the other way round!

Overall, good value, pleasant breakfast, excellent personal service.

Room Tip: Room 101 has a shared terrace and a thin view of the lake.

Bellagio is an expensive city but well worth a visit. The other towns on the lake are also expensive. Hotel Centrale, while not cheap, was a good value in an expensive area. They specifically say there is no lake view from the rooms, but there is a sliver of one from our balcony and from the 2nd floor terrace. Our room was small but comfortable with a balcony overlooking the small grounds of the hotel. Its furnishings make if feel more like you are visiting your Italian Aunt. A very large tree offers shade in the hot summer days. Service by the owner and sons is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good, smaller than some we had but with hot croissants. Great location right in town with very good restaurants within 1 block.

Had a great time staying in Bellagio, the hotel is very centrally located. Despite us arriving quite late in the evening, the hotel staff were really accommodating and friendly. The room was nice, very clean and with good air con which was needed for the time of year. Bed was comfortable and breakfast was nice with a good selection.

Overall had a great stay here, would definitely recommend this for anyone going to Bellagio.

We absolutely loved this place! Friendly and welcoming staff and a great breakfast. Room was spotlessly clean, and location was good - close to everything in Bellagio including the ferry. I didnt mind that the rooms did not have a lake view - plenty of time to stroll near the lake during day and night time. Would definately stay at the Hotel Centrale again!

Perfect location, mere meters from the ferry and shopping, restaurants and everything. Quaint with ambiance, great breakfast, air conditioner, and a very pleasant front desk/breakfast staff (family, I understand) who gave great recommendations. I would absolutely stay there again.

Had a great stay at Hotel Centrale. Nice room with great AC function and a balcony (not with a view). Breakfast was good. Great location in the heart of Bellagio! Parking opportunities not so many - arrive early to get a parking space at the small square with the church in the center of Bellagio. From there it's about 50 m walk to the hotel. Great service and clean room.
