I was then woken up at 8am by road works. I may have been a little unlucky to be there on a Friday night, with a room overlooking... More

I took a clean, quiet ensuite single bedroom on the 3rd of 5 floors for 50 euros a night, with an eat all you like buffet breakfast included. There is also WIFI available.

We stayed at the Plinius hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is in a great location: close to the lake, the main station and the centre of the old town. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and quiet, but also rather small. The elevator is really really slow and in our room it was way too hot, even... More

We booked last minute and got a good price -the only real positive thing that I can say about this hotel is its location right in the town centre and the friendly staff at breakfast. Everything else was a bit lacking and neglected. The room was dated but clean. The wallpaper in my room was peeling from the wall and... More

This hotel is in a great location – close to the centre of Como old town and waterfront area. The hotel rooms are small, but seem to have been renovated in recent years so are not too bad – at first glance… We encountered numerous small and not-so- small issues that seem to suggest this hotel lacks any real maintenance...
