of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
I traveled alone to San Diego for the first time, and I'm so glad I picked this hotel. It was clean, nice staff, GREAT location. I would definitely stay again. Great value for the price. It is close to Downtown, Little Italy, all the great places to visit ad a tourist. I loved it.
"What a gem!!"
We stayed here 3 nights before having to move to the Hilton San Diego Bayfront for a conference. It was less than half the price (even with the preferred group rate at the Hilton) and 10x the hotel. The room was small but lovely, the bed was incredible comfortable, with a small fridge and microwave. the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful - one staff member even GAVE me a stamp to mail a postcard when I asked if they sold any!! The lobby was an amazing eclectic and comfortable decor. Will definitely stay there again!!!
"Nice hotel, excellent location"
Stayed at the Sofia for 3 nights. Arrived early and just wanted to dump our luggage but front desk checked us at 1pm which was great. Staff were friendly enough and gave us a map of the area. We had a small room as other reviews have mentioned (the bathroom has a sliding door as a normal door wouldn't open). However we managed to move around the room easily with two large cases and other bags etc on the luggage stand and floor. The room was clean, very quiet (3rd floor with a view of parking lot), no noise from other hotel guests either. I was surprised at how easy it was to walk to most of the attractions around the bay area. We didn't use the busses but a lyft to the Zoo was less than $10 from the hotel. If you don't want to use the hotel bar/restaurant there are plenty surrounding the hotel too Will definitely stay again if in the area.
Very pretty hotel on outside. 36.00 valet parking per day but you can take your car in/out. Room was small and nothing special and review reflects that. Centrally located. Not sure how safe area is at night - would chk w front desk. Nice lobby area. Gym open 24hrs and they offer walking tour on weekends and yoga. Decent restaurant in lobby. Gym was sufficient.
A cool little hotel for a couple or single traveler, rooms were small. Location is great, parking expensive. I like that it was free wifi and included a couple waters per day. Overlooked a parking lot. Staff was great and welcoming.
