"Good and Convenient Boutique Hotel in Downtown San Diego"
We stayed at the Sofia for two nights while seeing Hamilton in San Diego, and had a great stay. It is right around the corner form the Civic Theater, and very convenient to downtown, gas lamp, and all public transportation. It's less than a 10 minute walk to the Amtrak Station. The hotel was clean and staff is friendly. No complaints at all, though as many point out, the rooms are very small. If you're travelling on business or just a couple, it's a nice alternative to the bigger chains. Restaurant was great, and there's a Coffee Bean & Tender Greens basically attached or next door to hotel. Lots of restaurants you can walk to, and also the Horton Plaza mall. There are definitely A LOT of homeless people in Downtown San Diego and the streets, but that would be the case with any dowtown hotels. All in all, a great place to stay.
"extremely nice stay"
We have stayed at The Sofia several times and would stay again and again. It is conveniently located and staff is always friendly and helpful. Our room is always clean and comfortable. Little extras in the rooms are very nice and Brian at the front desk is everything you could dream of at the front desk, very helpful!
"Great downtown hotel"
I really enjoyed my stay here, a great old building but very up to date inside. I had a great corner room on the top floor. Really well furnished and comfortable. I stayed to go to the theatre, just around the corner. Only negative was the additional resort fee which seemed a rip-off.
"An awsome place to stay"
The Sofia Hotel is awesome place to stay, we visit several times a year, the staff is always amazing, the hotel is in a perfect location, very close to airport and within walking distance to seaport village,
"Nice place, but watch out to the "gotcha""
Beautiful hotel with a great deal of charm. Rooms are small, but very comfortable. Only (major) complaint is the $15 per day "resort fee" that covers Yoga studio, bike use, two waters and WiFi log in. I know the airlines have made nickel and diming us an art, I guess the hotel industry is next!
