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

Stayed here one night and slept well. The rooms a very small, but clean and functional. The breakfast had good food, but nothing warm. The front desk was very helpful and gave us the information needed.

Great value for the money considering that hotels in Como are expensive while Plinius is one of the cheapest. It is very clean, very cozy, staff is polite and helpful. The location is very convenient since it is in the middle of Como.

We stayed in Hotel Plinius for 1 night and were satisfied with our stay. Most hotels in the area are generally expensive and Plinius was the cheapest we could find at the time. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are spacious. The bathrooms were also faultless. The hotel is well situated, about 5 minutes walk from the Duomo... More

We stayed here in March for a school study group. Hotel Plinius is in an excellent location and has very friendly staff! It is in the heart of Como which was great because we went sightseeing everyday and this really helped. The rooms were nicely cleaned and very spacious. We had an awesome time here and the hotel is very... More

We stayed in Hotel Plinius for a week in the end of May. We had made the booking several months beforehand. When we arrived in the middle of the night we were first taken into a tiny room without a balcony, which our booking documents clearly stated we had paid for. That was instantly corrected and we were taken into... More

It is a medium sized hotel in the very centre of Como and a walk from the shopping area and cafes of Piaza Garibaldi. The double room is comfortable for two and wifi works with a password that you have to introduce each time you get into the hotel. Scarce breakfast buffet,terrible coffe(ask for one out of the buffet to... More

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
