“nice hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

We stayed at the Albergo Central in July 2011. The hotel is nice, clean and easy to find. Our family-room included one bedroom and two beds in the 'living room'. But it had airco and two tv-sets with more than enough channels. The breakfast was nothing special, some croissants and standing in line for the coffee-machine. Problem could be the parking space behind the hotel, you should get there in time to find some space. The staff was really nice, friendly and very helpful. In the surroundings of the hotel is not much, you can go out for a drink but you should go downtown Cernobbio for some fun and entertainment. But on the other hand if you are passing through this is a great hotel to stay for the night.

dear Guest considering the review of our guests in the 2012 we have incrase the tv channel, (inglisch/french/german), also we have made some changes at the breakfast buffet, hope that you came here again and you can see it, regarding the parking place I will inform you that all our guests of the hotel have a place reserved, doesn't matter if the parking is full, because we have a lot of clients in the restaurant, next time you come here please advise the reception and they will find a place for you, or later they will park the car for you.

Thank you again for the review so we can fix the things.

My husband, toddler, and I stayed at Albergo Centrale during a quick overnight stay on our way home from an Italian holiday.

While our room was a bit cramped and a little worn, the location of the hotel is perfect. Our room faced the street and we weren't bothered by noise. The restaurant served wonderfully delicious food, and we were able to dine there while monitoring our sleeping son via baby monitor. We would definitely stay here again, especially so we could drink more cappuccinos at the coffee bar located diagonally across the intersection!

My wife and I stayed at the Albergo Centrale in Cernobbio, Italy in late November 2011. We chose to rent the 2 room family apartment located within the hotel because we had invited family to join us. The apartment included two separate bedrooms, spacious living room with flat screen TV, a kitchen with stove and refrigerator and large bathroom with separate bath and shower.

The Hotel serves a continental breakfast and has a fine restaurant and bar on the premise. One drawback is the hotel does not have an elevator but there are only three floors and staff was very friendly and willing to help.

Albergo Centrale is about a 10 minuet cab ride from the Como San Giovanni railway station and can also be reached by ferry or bus. Lake Como and the ferry stop is just a short walk away. The ferry is easy to use and provides access to other towns on the lake. I would recommend the Albergo Centrale .

Lovely hotel in centre of Cernobbio overlooking Lake Como. Gorgeous location with easy access to the Piazza, fabulous public pool (special overlooking the lake and mountain views). We enjoyed access to 2 x triple rooms (parents, children & grandparents). Comfortable and clean rooms with small but totally beautiful bathrooms. Well appointed. Great breakfast. Helpful staff and bus & ferry stop are literally at your doorstep. Gorgeous alfresco restaurant at the hotel is always buzzing in the evening and creates an inviting atmosphere for tourists. Great location with other local restaurants available. Would stay in Cernobbio again. Photos coming!

The hotel is only a few minutes walk to the lake and restaurants. The staff were very helpful and polite. We stayed 4 nights whilst attending the Formula 1 racing at Monza. The only downside was the size of the room. It was fine for just 4 nights but I would find it too small to say for any longer. The continental breakfast was varied and fresh and the evening meal was delicious. I would stay here again for a short trip.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the restaurant are noisy

The hotel has a great location within a stone's throw from the lake, and everything else in Cernobbio. Como itself and the lake's other attractions are easily reachable by boat.

The staff were very helpful at all times of the day and night. The hotel has it's own parking lot in the back, which is a blessing in this town. The rooms were clean, comfortable and lacked nothing. The only small downsides are that there is no elevator, and some of the rooms are a bit small.

The breakfast is hearty compared to a lot of other places in Italy. The restaurant is pretty good for lunch/dinner, though it remains a mystery why so many of the fish are frozen rather than fresh. To their credit, the frozen items are clearly marked in the menu.

Finally, the hotel should be commended for its reasonable rates, even in the middle of the high season!

Fine location, just a few steps from the Lake. Near to restaurants, nice walks, and easy access to roads to various good sights. Room was comfy, bathroom clean and easy to use. No elevator. Outdoor lounge was great for warm afternoons. Only downside was hallway carpets not very clean.

Room Tip: If you need an elevator, this is not for you.
