We arrived in September 2016 at Lake Como by rental car. Hotel Plinius is located in a plaza, so once we had checked in, we were directed to an underground garage, a 10 minute walk from the hotel. There is little parking available around the Lake, so the garage was a safe place and reasonably priced. If you arrive by... More

The hotel is in a ZTL zone in the Centro storico of Como. It is possible to drive your car to the hotel, unpack your bags and drive to a garage nearby where parking costs €16 per night. Your number plate will be sent to the police so you don't get fined. The hotel is close to piazzas and the... More

It was a great experience all round. Reception staff were very helpful but the gem was the lady in charge of breakfast who made a very good coffee (or two). No request was too difficult for her. The cleaning staff were very courteous also I would thoroughly recommend. Great location.

This small hotel is located a few minutes' walk from the lake and city centre, and just a minute away from a lovely piazza. The hotel is very clean, breakfast is good and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Thank you Florentina for the daily coffee at breakfast!

This is a small hotel with limited amenities but it is perfectly placed just off one of the loveliest piazza's in Como. The room was small but opened out on to the main street below and the hotel is within easy walking distance of all the sights, bars and restaurants in Como. Pleasant staff, basic breakfast but friendly staff and... More

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... More
