Walked in after long tiring journey. Parking immediately outside, not always easy on Lake Como. Saw it had 4 stars & thought should be good. Menu in window looked attractive.
However room very small. noticeably musty smell. Furnishings shabby. The bed was described as king-size but didn't look it.
Had pre-dinner drink in lounge/bar. Furniture again shabby with some wear. Went to go into restaurant to find it was not open to guests. Had we known we had to drive elsewhere for dinner, we would not have stayed there.
On return, strong smell of cigarette smoke in ground floor area.
In our room, could hear conversation of other guests in nearby rooms.
In morning, noticed three dust cobwebs in bathroom, and stains in bathroom cabinet. Also rust around shower screen and crack in shower door. We didn't use shower but stronger musty smell from it. Hair dryer plugged into a socket marked "for electric shavers only"
Breakfast standard but not nearly as good as 4* we stayed in the following night.
I feel this is possibly the worst hotel I have stayed in. On the same holiday we stayed in 3 & 4 * hotels in the Province of Bergamo. Both of these were so much better than the Plinio. It is difficult to imagine how it holds 4 stars
