"Excellent Downtown Hotel"
The Sofia is a charmingly comfortable hotel. A perfect weekend spot to enjoy a play across the street at the Spreckles Theater or walking to Horton Plaza for shopping. The Gaslamp district is only blocks away for added dining choices.. The hotel offers an adjoining restaurant....excellent for breakfast and cocktails.The rooms are small but adequate and very clean...including mini refrigerators and microwaves.
The location was perfect. It was central so everything is close by. We pretty much just walked around or if you prefer to take the trolley, it's just walking distance too to the station. It was nice and cozy, a bit small but enough for our stay. I liked their hand soap which was similar to the Neutrogena bar. I usually bring my own soap when I travel because hotel soaps make my hands crack and bleed but this time I forgot so had to use theirs and my hands were fine. The room had outlets everywhere so that was great. You don't have to go searching and reaching behind desks unlike in some hotels. The things that need improvement are: the shower -I really don't understand how it had half a door so of course the rest of the bathroom floor gets flooded. the sheets -they weren't very soft. They could use a higher thread count. the ironing board -it didn't have a cover/ foam pad. It was so difficult having to iron my dress on it. TV check out -not sure they have this feature since it didn't pop up when I tried to look for it on my way out. Nobody really wants to do the old fashioned lining up at the front desk to check out right'!
"Absolutely Adorable, Quaint Boutique Hotel "
We recently stayed at the Sophia Hotel for a conference we were in town for. It's a wonderful location in downtown San Diego, walking distance to Horton Plaza and the Gas Lamp District. The hotel is clean and modern. The staff was excellent and we really enjoyed our stay. The downside is the rooms are small, but comfortable.
This is a great hotel! We are concluding our trip down the Pacific Coast Hwy here in the San Diego. There is no self parking but the price is comparable to to all the other hotels. The staff were very nice on check in. We're were pleasantly surprised on how nice and inviting the room is. Our room is small but cozy and has everything we need. It is super clean. This hotel is also in the Gaslamp district so there is plenty to do. This hotel deserves a 4 star rating and I will stay here again.
Lovely reception area. Our room lovely and clean. Not a quiet room but we weren't in it much. Great location as only 10 mins walk to harbour area. Would recommend this hotel for visit. Parking costs $36 per night and is valet parking. Had breakfast in bar which was lovely too.
