The good things first: the hotel is located centrally in Como the receptionists were very friendly, the place was clean and the wireless LAN worked ok. I was on a business trip and traveling alone. I got into a tiny, narrow room, which was stuffy and hot. With the windows open, there was much noise from a club nearby until... More

You've got your choice - you can have the windows open to try to catch some breeze, because the air conditioning doesn't work, or you can close the windows to shut out some of the loud music coming from some club. Of course, then you can't sleep either, because it's so hot in the room. Only bright spot of this... More

This place is close to harbor so if coming in by Ferry, its not very far to walk. Only a few blocks to train station also. Air conditioning doesn't work and two out of three clerks were not helpful with how to get it going, or how to find English TV stations. There's a club down the street and it... More

Booked last minute whilst on a cycle holiday as the campsite was out of town and we fancied getting a flavour of Como. The room and en suite were clean and the staff helpful. We were able to store our bikes in the underground garage. Unfortunately although we got to enjoy a night out in Como I probably would have... More

We stayed only one night in Plinus. The hotel is in a great location, 5 min walk to train station, 3 min to the lake, 3 min to the city centre. The front desk was very helpful and nice. The room was basic, clean and had everything we need. It's a great deal when you compare the money you pay!

Great clean room in this Hotel that is located in the center of the town. Would have been very good if it hasn't been for the noise from the bars nearby. Make sure that you get at room the lies in the right direction.

From the outside, the hotel Plinius is not encouraging. In fact it is quite easy to miss it unless you know exactly where to look. The exterior is dingy and it is on the corner of a rather scruffy area. Once inside however, it turns out to be a bright and cheery little hotel with clean, comfortable (though smallish) rooms,...

Ok hotel, good service, in the middle of Como. If you go by car, make sure to order the parking lot in front of the hotel (15 €). Extremely hard beds. The pillows are a disaster and a cathastrophe! Very nice bathrooms though.

We spent 4 nights here on our visit to Lake Como, so glad that we chose the Plinius hotel. We found the hotel to be central for all the things we wanted to do. The room was a good size and the bathroom was large and very nice, one drawback was only one very flat pillow on the bed but... More

Spent two nights here at beginning of our Italian trip, friendly efficient staff, large clean rooms, excellent location, what more could one ask for....Parking!! We found a spot on the busy street outside the hotel, had to get up early to feed the meter, otherwise, good hotel and location.
