The hotel is conveniently located between the two train stations: Como Nord Lago and S.Giovanni.. The hotel itself is quite good value for the money and I would rate it as a great budget accommodation. The check in staff was very friendly and gave us a room immediately even thought we arrived 3 hours before the check in time.. While... More

Hotel is located 5 minutes from the train station. It is in the historical center and close to the ferry station. It was recently renovated and the young staff is very friendly. I stayed in the new room on the 5th floor, it Very spacious for a 3 star hotel in Italy. WiFi very fast and with easy access. I... More

Bad: very noisy until early hours (disco). No tea/coffee in room or anywhere except at breakfast Good: near the two stations. Room adequate. Breakfast ok. SUMMARY: Personally I would never stay at Plinius again owing to the night time high noise levels. Lake Como itself is wonferful and Plinius is close enough to all the lake boat services.

We stayed at the Hotel Plinius at Lake Como and it is a very nice budget hotel, the rooms are very very small, and the noise from the streets at night is very loud, so sleeping is not very good. However, the staff and the cleanliness of the hotel is really very good. They serve a continental breakfast. Lake Como... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights recently. The hotel is well located in Como and a short distance from the train station. The rooms were clean but very small and we had trouble getting access to our two large cases. The breakfasts were quite good

The staff at this hotel are most helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We stayed 7 nights - so we became friendly with most of the reception desk staff. Our room had two small balconies, so we were able to dry our laundry. The hotel is situated about 200m from the rail station - but this distance includes about 100m of stairs.... More

Room centrally located. Breakfast was adequate. Internet access was a bit patchy in the upper floors but acceptable. Comfortable room. Had loads of space. Furnishings a bit dated. Can get a bit noisy at night but was here in winter so this settled fairly early. Also we were there on the weekend and the front doors were locked without anyone... More

Had rooms 101 and 100, which had a disabled bathroom which was bigger than the room. They both faced the street. Much noise well into the night. If I went back I'd ask for rooms at the back. Nice breakfast and the staff were really helpful with restaurant suggestions and directions. Como in itself is a beautiful city 35 mins... More

I was very concerned about our choice of hotels for a week long stay in Como Italy after reading the many bad reviews of Hotel Plinius. I have just returned from that vacation and I m happy to report we found the hotel to be delightful. The rooms are what I call "European size" small but not stifling. The beds... More
