“Great Little Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

We stayed here for six nights in March 2014. Nothing but good things to say about the place. The staff are very friendly, the hotel is centrally located in Bellagio and the breakfasts are good.

There is a little climb of about fifty steps from the lake front, but the hotel and staff more than make up for it.

We would have no hesitation in staying here again in the future.

Stayed March 2014, traveled as a couple

We really enjoyed our last two nights in Italy at Hotel Centrale. The location was ideal--close to the water, and close to all of the shops/restaurants in this wonderful town. Room was clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but very charming and homey. We even had a glimpse of the lake from our window. The courtyard was pretty as you walk in to the hotel. The family that owns the hotel was extremely helpful with suggestions, directions, advise. They went out of their way to please us. Breakfast was great, and coffee excellent!

This hotel is located up the hill from the waterfront. A fairly steep path with stairs to get to the hotel. The walk up the hill was worth it. This is a very nice, well taken care of older family ran hotel. Little courtyard was cute as you entered the hotel. Our room was upstairs and was small with a small bathroom. Everything was clean and functional, Our windows opened out to the courtyard and if you stuck your head out and looked right you could see Lake Como. Room had a nice skylight over the bed. Breakfast was pretty basic but was filling and included in the price. This hotel was considerably cheaper than most other hotels, and we really liked the setting. Staff was excellent. We absolutely loved the town of Bellagio and Lake Como area. You are surrounded by restaurants. You must know the city is on a steep hill so anything other than walking on the waterfront requires walking up the hill, most of the times with stairs. Would love to return to the area, and most definitely would stay here again

We stayed at Centrale Hotel in early October for 4 nights, chosen because of Tripadvisor’s high rating.
A little disappointed as some things did not live up to expectations.
Many of the hotels are fairly central to small Bellagio so location is not that critical.
Breakfasts are adequate but not sensational.Rooms were bigger than usual and fairly dark despite a roof light. Bed was below average quality.
Bathroom was tiny and shower curtain a challenge. Hair dryer broke but was quickly replaced.
The recommendations about the staff’s warmth and friendliness did not live up to our expectations, but were not bad.
Hotel still reasonable value for its price and Bellagio is a wonderful place to visit and base one’s self at Lake Como.

Hotel in excellent location, rooms very nice and clean, nice staff, good breakfast.
Only one problem no parking so will have to find a space around the town and walk to the hotel as hotel not on a road.

We had a short 4-day break in Bellagio and the Hotel Centrale met our needs very well. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was a very good size with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was small and the shower enclosure took a little getting used to, but perfectly adequate. Room maintenance was excellent, very clean and I think we had clean sheets and towels every day. WiFi was easy to use, very fast and included. Breakfast was about average for this kind of hotel, with as much good coffee as you can drink served by the friendly barista. Easy walking distance to all of Bellagio shops and restaurants, the Villa Meltzi and the ferry terminals makes this an excellent, good value hotel for a stay in Bellagio.

Room Tip: We had room 101, with access to a terrace . Room is good size.

We chose this hotel because it guaranteed parking our rented car, which we knew we were not going to be using during our short stay in Bellagio.My husband had his heart set on staying in one of the much fancier hotels directly on the lake with a view,but they would not guarantee parking.Parking is very hard to find and the rules are not always clear for the traveler.We knew that we would not spend much time in the hotel and so it was a good choice for us in the end.Our room on the first floor was small,yet comfortable and clean bed was all we needed.For longer stay with all our luggage(2 weeks travel thru Europe) it would have become more challenging. This hotel is positioned sort of in a middle row of Bellagio and my husband was helped by the owner with the luggage.The bathroom was clean,but we did not get the modern one as another guest mentioned in her review,but a tiny bathroom with a kind of "harmonica" cloth enclosure,something I have never seen before. For a brief moment I wanted to ask for a different room.The owner reminded me that I did get the room with the terrace as I requested when booking the room. I always look for a balcony or something that would allow me to step outside the room, I weighed my priorities and we stayed.The breakfast was nice and cappuccino always ready for the asking.This is a small hotel -family owned,so that in itself provided a different experience for us.It was also very reasonably priced.We took a day trip (ferry) to Varenna, that was recommended by the owner's son and had a great day and wonderful dinner there, watching the time in the evening not to miss the last ferry back.

Room Tip: I would still ask for a terrace, but would also request more modern bathroom
