Hotel Centrale is situated in a central location, a few minutes walk to lake Como. It is a really nice hotel, clean and confortable. The hotel staff are friendly and very helpful. We loved the buffet breakfast and the coffee made by Rudi and Laura, the cafe staff, who were really lovely😊..

We stayed here for two nights in July 2016. There appeared to be no lifts in this hotel but there is only one floor to climb. The rooms were pretty and very, very clean. We received a complimentary bottle of process and a platter of stoned fruit because of a mistake the hotel made. That was a lovely touch. The... More

It was a great hotel, the only thing was we had a late flight back, and they could not give us a late checkout which proved a little disappointing, so we had to make other plans. Overall a good hotel.

This hotel was very clean, very quiet, and had the essential amenities such as free wifi and breakfast. What was incredibly odd to me was that the bathroom had no shower curtain so it was hard not to soak the entire floor.
