I would recommend this hotel if staying in Bellagio. Although not directly on the lake front it is only a 1/2 minute walk away and extremely convenient for all the amenities that this lovely town offers, including the ferry terminals.
Hotel Centrale is a family run business and they are extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful with advice about the area, plus even teaching you some Italian phrases if you wish! They do not provide a cooked breakfast, however there is enough choice for anyone, including cereals, yoghurts and fresh fruit for the health conscious. They also provided low fat milk on request and were very accommodating with any additional requirements. I was actually thankful that a cooked breakfast was NOT provided otherwise it would be too tempting (and waist expanding) to have each day!
Our room, on the top floor, was looking towards the lake and you could actually see a small view of the lake and mountains between other buildings. It was a lovely room with a large bed and a safe was provided, plus an ensuite with hairdryer. It would have been nice to have tea making facilities in the room, however this was the only negative. The cost was very reasonable, compared to other hotels in the area and seemed well worth the money. We would definitely return to this hotel if we travelled to Bellagio in the future.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 301 - it had a skylight and 2 additional windows. You could actually see a small...

We based ourselves at this hotel for five days whilst staying in Bellagio. A wonderful small hotel, centrally located and run by owner and his two sons who were most friendly and helpful. They gave us good advice on where to drive and sights to see. The room was very clean and breakfast was great, with homemade yoghurt and homemake cake. I have stayed in many hotels but absolutely loved this little hotel and will certainly love to return again.

We stayed here for 4 nights in March when most of the other hotels in town were closed for the winter. There were very few people in town so we got very good attention from the friendly, helpful owners! It was almost like a B&B. The rooms were very spacious for a European hotel, the bed was extremely comfortable and the rooms serviced beautifully each morning. The elevator was even a good size rather than the tiny French version. Breakfast offered lots of choices with good coffee. We had to leave early on our last morning so a breakfast tray was provided to our room the night before. Although the Hotel really doesn't have lake views this was not a negative as the central location was a real plus.

We stayed here for three days, thoroughly enjoying our strolls through Bellagio and venturing out to the other lake towns. Centrally located, we would go back to our room to use the 'facilities,' or just to freshen up, and then head back out to just 'walk around.' The staff was friendly, exceedingly helpful, and the place just completely charming. A LOT of stairs to navigate, but you're in Bellagio so don't be too surprised!

The staff were fantastic. We went on a picnic, and they offered plates, wines, etc etc.

The hotel was in a great location, our room was large and we had a huge outdoor patio. The breakfast in the morning was perfect. Couldn't have asked for anything else!

Hotel Centrale was a wonderful hotel in the charming town of Bellagio. The hotel was very nicely maintained and the staff were wonderful. The staff member present when we arrived (at night on a very rainy day) was very friendly and gave us great advice. The staff member the next day was great as well (gave us a handful of extra candy they stock the rooms with when we simply asked about it!). And the staffer in the morning made us the nicest cup of coffee, with some great foam art!. The rooms were also very nice. They were spacious, clean, had comfortable beds, and had a sky light so we were able to look at the stars in bed! The breakfast was wonderful too. We were on our honeymoon and loved this place. Overall this was a great hotel.

Booked this based upon Rick Steve’s recommendation in addition to TA reviews. Overall, a decent stay in Bellagio during the off season. The gentleman owner was extremely nice and helpful – I really enjoyed talking to him. The room was basic but comfortable. The hotel feels a bit tired but it makes up for it with its good location, value and charm.
