“Good for the price”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

We stayed here for one night as it was reasonably priced and we were arriving in Como quite late. We had 1 large double bed and a single bed so there wasn't a lot of room however we didn't need more. The room was clean and the hotel is in a good central location. Continental breakfast was included in the price. We didn't notice any noise late at night.

The Plinius is immaculately clean, good bathroom, very helpful and charming staff, room decor a bit tired and drab but breakfast buffet good and lovely little breakfast room. There are a few steps up from the street but the hotel has a wheelchair hoist to get up them so this would be helpful for disabled people. The only disadvantage, something which the hotel can do nothing about, is a very rowdy bar opposite, carrying on till late and attracting a biker clientele.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back or overlooking the courtyard.

I wen to Italy to complete a photography course and me along 14 other people stayed int his hotel. The staff was great, responsive, attentive, helpful! The rooms were big, clean, and very well put together. The bathrooms were great as well. Rooms also had AC with manual controls, so you can set the temp to your liking. The hotel was one black away from the lake, and close to everything else! we are also one 45 mins away from Bellagio by boat. They have WIFI, and a small restaurant and bar... Breakfast in included!

Highly recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: Personal advice: bring bug spray when you leave the hotel... you WILL need it! for some reason, the...

We drive from Milan to this hotel, upon arrival , we were informed that we have to park our car in the public parking , which there was none . After going around and around for approx. 1 hour, we finally found a parking place about 2 blocks ago .
The hotel location is considered to be GOOD, but because there is bars closed by, lots of noises up until 3am in the morning ( we checked in on Saturday ) . the room is sparcely furnished , no comforter on beds, just plain sheets .
The bathroom is good ( spacies and well maintained ) -
Based on the room rate, we felt that there is little value to this hotel.
The breakfast is nothing out of ordinary ,

Room Tip: If travel by car, check with hotel first , if they can arrange for parking . more suitabe for young...

The location of this hotel is fantastic, just 5 minutes walk from both train stations and being surrounded by shopping and eating options, as well as the lake itself.

Rooms are simple but good enough as a base since you probably won't spent much time indoors around here. I didn't notice the much talked about street noise on either of my 2 nights, but I was exhausted and could have slept through a herd of stampeding elephants. Wifi is free.

It's not a stunning or memorable place, but it's a good solid choice with a great location for enjoying the lake Como area.
