Hotel Centrale is run by Giacomo, his sons ( Marcello and Michaeli ) and his wife. As we approached we observed a brightly colored "typically rustic Italian" building with a nice garden, in the middle of town. Marcello welcomed us warmly. He then escorted us to our room to assure that we knew how to operate the "double opening" windows, and that we knew how to operate the A/C.

Michaeli makes the cappuccinos, chocolates and espresso in the morning. The breakfast has great variety (cheese, ham, breads, fruit, cereals, and more) and is served in a bright and airy room. Three breakfast tables have a partial lake view, really nice! ! ! Our guest room was spacious, reasonably priced, and the shower is refreshing, and clean.

No lake view, no problem. A 3 minute walk to the Lake Como ferry pier is all you need for access to the entire lake. The family is willing to suggest wonderful restaurants in Bellagio. The family also directed us to the mini market, the pharmacy, and the cosmetics shops, so we felt like "locals." Marcello even ran after us, as we departed, in order to volunteer to carry some of our luggage down the stairs to the ferry pier.

Hotel Centrale is simply a "family" gem! To quote another reviewer "Ah. Giacomo. How you will be missed. "

Room Tip: They tell you "no lake view" but, if you lean out the window of Room 306 you can see the lake . . ah, beautiful. The entire town gets quiet at night.

Lake Como is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been and the Hotel Centrale is well located, clean, and affordable. We wouldn't hesitate to return here. You will only be in your room to sleep as Lake Como is all about being outside!

Ah. Giacomo. How you will be missed.

Not often do you come to a hotel where the owner becomes your friend, but after a stay at the Centrale (as long as you're not a total idiot) you will.

Last week we had a late night arrival at the picturesque town of Bellagio, Lombardia. This beautiful little village is located at Lake Como, and arriving there by night is close to magical. The tiny streets, the hidden-away shops, the outdoor restaurants, the lights... And then, hauling your luggage into the courtyard of Hotel Centrale where Giacomo eagerly anticipates your arrival. Our previous nights at German hotels prior to our arrival in Bellagio had been influenced by efficiency during check-in and check-out. But not Centrale. Heavens no. Never before have I enjoyed a 20-minute check-in. What a welcome :-)

After a lengthy and warm chat, I entered my room on the first floor with a terrace right next to it. It was exactly what I expected; good beds, wardrobe, AC, and a decent restroom. Nothing fancy, but oh so homely. After a good night's sleep, I stepped out onto the terrace overlooking a typical tiny Italian village street directly beneath. Rustic and beautiful!

Breakfast was good, and WiFi was free! And Giacomo was great. I certainly recommend Centrale if you're looking for a genuine experience.

Firstly Lake Como is breathtakingly beautiful!
Arriving at Hotel Centrale after over 24 hours of traveling from Australia, we were very excited to see how beautiful and relaxing this hotel was. We loved our 3 night stay in June 2012 at this charming little hotel (first stop on our 2 week Italian honeymoon) with it's friendly, helpful staff, comfortable rooms and yummy breakfast. The hotel is ideally located, a few minutes walk to the best restaurants and all the sights that Bellagio has to offer. You will not regret staying at this lovely and affordable Lake Como gem.

This was our first stop in Italy and we loved Lake Como and the Hote Centrale. The staff was friendly and courteous and the hotel was very very clean and nice. The breakfast was great every morning with fruits, yogurt, breads and a few meat items. This was an excellent value for the price we paid.
