Very good value for money, Hotel Plinius is clean, centrally located very close to centre, lake and railway station. Ideally located if you want to travel by boat or train. Very good breakfast. We recommend it to other travellers.

The hotel is clean and the breakfast is fine. My one problem was having a room in the front of the building. The noise level from the cars motorcycles and horns is pretty loud. The worst part was all the yelling and screaming from the cafe across the street till well after midnight. I got the impression that they give these rooms to the Americans and English speaking people . Overall the hotel is great but if you go request a room not facing the street.

A simple, but very good hotel. The rooms are perfectly clean, and bathrooms are spotless. The breakfast is ok. The staff is helpful and the location is ideal - about 3-5 min walk to the town center/boat station and about 7-10 to Como S. Giovanni, which will be your station if you're coming from Milano Centrale

The hotel Plinius was very good as fas as location, breakfast, cleanliness and courtesy of reception. Unfortunately, we had a room (404) under the roof where the engine of air conditioning was located: the noise and the vibrations were unbearable so that we had to change room. Therefore, we suggest you to avoid (at least in summer) rooms on the last floor!

Location is absolutely great for the price! Close to the port and within 5 minute walk to all! Breakfast buffet was decent with typical European rolls, salamis, cheeses, etc. Room we were in was fairly small with not much space to put any luggage. We peered into a few other rooms and they seemed much larger than ours. Friendly staff that speak English. Free WiFi if you book through Venere otherwise they charge a whole lot for access!

Estuve en Como con una amiga. Era la primera vez que visitamos el lugar. La ubicación del Hotel es excelente porque permite desplazarse con toda facilidad y hay muchos restaurantes en la zona. Es un lugar muy tranquilo y seguro al que me gustaría volver.

I stayed at Hotel Plinius for 6 nights so comfort was a high priority. I had a single room which was lovely! The room was compact but around the size of a modern home's bedroom. My room was near to the corner of the building with double french louvre doors opening onto a step on balcony from which I had views dow a street to the water and down another to Piazza Volta. It was an easy walk to the water and ferry stops, a pharmacy across the street, gelati only 30m away and restaurants and bars within 100m. The internet point was not operational during my stay but there were 2 cafes / bars with internet points no more that 100m from the hotel. Staff were young and pleasant and the room was cleaned and maintained very well. My room appeared to have been refurbished within the last couple of years or so and appeared precisely like the pictures on this site. Breakfast, which was included, was basic but apropriate and in keeping with the breakfast culture of the region. Pastries, cold meats, cheese, breads, cereal, coffee, juice and fruit. For under $100 euro a night I was very pleased indeed with the Hotel and my week in beautiful Como.

The staff was very friendly and the Plinius is located in an area that makes it very easy to get to the lake. Short walking distance. You can walk there from the train station. The breakfast here was very good. It did not take long to find out how to get around and back to the hotel without getting lost. They did not have their computer for guest use working, but if you need one and don't have your own, there are internet stores in the area. I usually look for a hotel that is near the train station, and central to what most tourists are going to be interested in. This hotel does that.

DAs Hotel ist sehr sauber, die Menschen im Hotel sind sehr anständig und nett, das Frühstück gut, ein guter und schmackhafter Kaffee wird ausgeschenkt, das Hotel liegt sehr zentral und man ist schnell in der Altstadt, am Bahnhof und umliegend hat es gute Restaurants mit guten Angeboten und Service. Das Hotel selber ist ruhig aber die Strasse erlaubt es kaum mit offenem Fesnter zu schlafen. Die Zimmer sind gut eingerichtet und sehr sauber und es hat alles funktioniert selbst die Dusche etc. Kann problemlos empfohlen werden, Preis Leistung stimmt, Preis aber eher im oberen Bereich.
