        The staff at the front desk were always polite and helpful. Some of the breakfast staff were good at there job.

        Usually a lousy breakfast service (dirty dishes left everywhere - not cleared by staff busy gossiping). Worst capuccino in the world! I think they "long life" milk instead of fresh milk.Try and get a room rate excluding breakfast and eat breakfast out!

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Our stay was perfect. We couldn't have asked for anymore. Any requests we had were fully met and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We arrived by train and the hotel is an easy 5 minutes walk from the station. If we return to Como we will definitely stay again and can recommend it to others.

        We liked the central location of the hotel, both to the town, and to the stations. The hotel was clean and well run. The staff were friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was was very good.WE Were extremely happy with our entire stay, so much so that we returned before flying out.

        Would have appreciated if the bar/coffee bar were open during the day/evening.

      • Single
        10.0

        This hotel was very reasonably priced for its location, a few blocks away from Lake Como. The room was very clean and tidy, and the receptionists were very friendly and spoke English. The breakfast was nice as well. The Wi-Fi was free and decent, but did not have a strong signal.

      • Single
        8.8

        The Hotel Plinius is affordable and located at an easy walking distance from the train station as well as Lake Como

        Very good location. Helpful staff. Good bathroom.

        Only one pillow on a single bed - I was given an extra one when I asked but why would anyone think one very thin pillow was adequate anyway? Also please note that the wifi is not free as advertised on Booked.net.

      • Single

        Cleanliness of the room; Hotel staff behaviour and very good location.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        It had a pleasant atmosphere and good breakfast.

        The bed was hard as were all the other beds we had in Italy.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Good sized room,clean and friendly staff.It was well located to the lake and easy walking distance to the train.Quaint and well priced.

      • Group of friends
        4.2

        bad as a whole, no internet, very noisy, expensive, small rooms, no parking, parking 300m-€ 20

        it has a great location, perfect for a short weekend

        Location

        Uncomfortable bed and pillows, not a single english speaking tv channel

      • Family with children
        8.8

        Well designed rooms (those on 4th floor have great views over the rooftops!); comfortable beds; great breakfast. Would recommend though needed two rooms for family of five.

      • Group of friends
        8.2

        Fantastic location in the centre of Como, no complaints, standard 3 star hotel by Italian rating but it was perfect for us as we just used it as a base. The room was perfectly cleaned each day and our room was big with a nice bathroom. The location was perfect.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Very clean, free wifi, close to duomo and ferry, good places to set nearby.

        Breakfast choices need to be improved and varied a little bit. Although the breakfast is complementary, the choices are boring. Why not simply serve boiled or scrambled eggs instead of letting us boil the egg each time?
