"Beautiful Hotel in the center of town"
Beautiful hotel in an old building so room are a little smaller than we are used to. Great service but Check your prices we wound up paying a bit more than I expected. We went through Expedia and it seems that many of the hotels like this do not like that.
"Rubbish - save your money"
The room 154 we had is so tiny you could shake a stick and it would hit the sides. I'd ring reception and complain but the phone was plugged into itself and didn't work. There was no tv remote, and while I was unhappy I couldn't ring reception - let's just say the room look clean for a prison cell - enough said.
"Great location and staff"
My husband picked this hotel for a /pleasure trip. We were very happy with the Sofia, with staff that were very helpful and friendly, a classy and quiet room with a super comfortable bed, and a great location. The hotel was within walking distance of shopping, several restaurants and the oh so popular 5 Ave entertainment district. We have no complaints and will happily stay here on our next trip to San Diego
Very good location for this hotel, helpful and friendly hotel staff. Rooms are a little outdated and small, but overall a good option around San Diego. Safe, coffe machine and microwave in room. Decent television.
"As Enjoyable and Wonderful As Ever"
When in beautiful San Diego, we always love to stay at the Sofia Hotel whenever possible. The charming and stylish boutique hotel is located an easy distance from the airport and pier and has a great downtown locale near many entertainment, dining, and shopping options. The city of San Diego had unexpectedly decided to tear up many segments of streets during the day of our arrival which resulted in not being able to get near the hotel easily but the helpful staff gave me directions to a lot and then advised us how approach Valet parking. This was a great help as although we have been to the hotel several times prior, the approach to the area was filled with detours, torn up streets, and signs, so the unlisted detour option was a huge help. The lobby was very inviting with an inviting lounge area where my wife opted to enjoy while I did our check in. On our way to our room, we noticed a sign that a free Yoga class was being offered in the morning which is one of the many nice touches the hotel offers. Our room was enjoyable and spacious as the main room offered a couch, chairs, flat screen television and a work desk and dresser. This came in handy as my wife had some work that she wanted to complete, so she logged into the complimentary WiFi and did her work in comfort and peace. I opted to retire to the bedroom and used the second television in the room to watch some of the college football games that were on as I worked away on my laptop while relaxing on the very comfy bed that the room offers. Later that evening we got ready for dinner at the amazing Currant French Bistro in the hotel and as usual, the food and service was amazing. The ambience of the locale was perfect as we opened with gourmet Popcorn and enjoyed gourmet pork and seafood options before ending the evening with very amble and enjoyable desserts. Our room offered a nice view of the downtown area and it was nice to enjoy the city lights as well as the ample amounts of space as we settled in for the night. The in room coffee was very welcome the next morning as the room also comes with two bottles of water per day as well as the option to purchase bottles of wine to further enhance your time away. The room also offers a safe as well as plenty of closet and dresser storage which ensures that for all stays regardless of length, guests will have the space they need to settle in and relax. Our check out was fast and efficient and the staff was amazing as always. Our car was waiting for us as we left the lobby and the Valet made sure we did not need directions. We would love to have spent more time at the hotel but had to get to the pier to check in for a cruise. The Sofia continues to show its charm and versatility with each visit as it is ideal for everything from business trips to simply getting away and relaxing for some time. The rooms are spacious and comfortable offering many amenities and the staff is always first-rate and friendly. When in San Diego, make sure to check out the Sofia Hotel as you will be glad you did.
