We choose to stay in Como because we wanted to explore its historical center( the Duomo deserves several visits) , explore lake towns like Varenna, Bellagio, Tremezzo and even go to Milan for a day trip. Hotel Plinius location was perfect for all our plans , it is in a walking distance to San Giovani train station and a few...

Loved this cute hotel in como- close to all the shops and the lake. Staff members always greeted us each time and breakfast was great too- always offering us cappuccinos! The rooms are air conditioned with wifi and the staff were very happy to help us with transfers and taxis and any other information we needed.

Located centrally, right next to the Piazza Cavour and a 10-15 minute walk from the station "Como Lago Nord" ,this small hotel has decently sized rooms . Importantly, it's a 5 minute walk from the beautiful lake and its ferry ticket center. The airconditioning quality in all European hotels (especially during the summer months) seems to be a basic problem...

The primary problem was that it was an incredibly noisy room which made it impossible to get to sleep until well after 2am, because of drunken street shouting and some inconsiderate guests). 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...

The hotel is located close to Piazza Cavour and is 10-15 minutes walk from both San Giovanni and Lago Nord stations. 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. The staff spoke good English and...

Stayed 2 nights in the end of February. Hotel is located 10-15 mins walk from the train station, just cut through the park in front of the train station, cross the traffic light and walk straight. The pier for boats to mid-lake is 5 mins walk away. Lift available, room is carpeted, clean and spacious. Bathroom equipped with toiletries, a...

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...
