“Meh.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2012

The good- nice and willing receptionist, reasonably stacked breakfast buffet. Convenient parking.

The bad- the twin room was literally the same size as its bathroom. The only instance of not-so-delicious house wine in a jar ever encountered in the history of Italy (and I was able to detect that after two bottles elsewhere). Not so great value.

Okay for an overnight stay, but I would look elsewhere for anything beyond that.

Dear guest,

thank you to have done your review in tripadvisor for us it's very important to know how our guests feel his stay in our hotel and wich is the things you think we need to improve, regarding the the size of the room unfortunatly we can do nothing because our hotel is an old Villa build in the 1909 and isn't possible to enlarge the rooms, about the house wine I cannot tell nothings because I think that each person has his own taste, but if you come here again I suggest personally a good wine from our region.

I thank you again to you to have made a review, please continue to do it because for our job is very important to liaise with the costumers.

have a nice day.

On our trip to Italy (San Vincenzo) in 2010) we were looking for a nice hotel just across the border of Switzerland. On the internet we found Albergo Centrale and booked the Quadruple room. The room was lovely and quit. The car was parked in their secured parking lot and the lake was just a couple of minutes walk. They serve really nice food and wines in the evening. The breakfast is far below what you expect and it's probably better to go somewhere else for breakfast. Last year we stopped for the night in Milan but for this summer we booked at Albergo again. After a trip of apps 1000 km's it is nice to relax at the lake and enjoy the good diner and sleep.

Room Tip: If you are a family of four try to book the Quadruple room. If you care for some real breakfast you...

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 .
