"Really great hotel"
Close to public transportation and the hop on hop off buses and plenty of restaurants within walking distance We had a wonderful stay here and would stay again if we are every lucky enough to return to San Diego.
"Cute and Convenient"
We enjoyed our visit to The Sofia. The location was close to Horton Plaza and the Hop On Hop Off Trolley stop. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We also loved the attached lounge for it's happy hour and the bathroom products were the best! Wish we had more time to do the yoga class. Would definitely stay there again.
"Ideal for a business trip"
Great room at an excellent price in an easy location for a good portion of the city. Lots of charm to the hotel and rooms. Bathroom was a little tight if you are traveling with a companion -- might stay elsewhere if I was traveling with my husband -- literally my only complaint. Staff was extremely helpful. Currant restaurant was tasty and well priced. Easy walk to downtown, Gaslamp Quarter, Convention Center, and Embarcadero Park. All for nearly half the price of the marina hotel and I didn't have to share a room.
"Great "Bouquet" Hotel"
Decided to try something different type of hotel on our recent trip to San Diego. The Sofia is a very nice, clean hotel, located in downtown between Little Italy and the Gaslamp Districts (both within walking distances), Petco Park is also within walking distance. The staff was great and our room was small but spacious. The hotel offers free use of bicycles as well as free basic wifi. We will definitely stay here again.
"VERY SMALL-VERY EXPENSIVE "
This place may well be where the whole "tiny house" concept was invented. We were booked in here to meet someone for a business meeting. I assumed that because of the price of the room that it would be a large executive style room with an area to spread our work and do what we needed to do. WRONG! The after getting in the two-person elevator and going upstairs we found the room to be wall to wall beds. It was impossible for two people to even move around freely. The beds are so close together that my associate and I felt that we were in bed together. On a positive note: the hotel staff, from the valet parking attendant to the entire front desk staff were more than pleasant and a joy to deal with. I get that it's a historic building and all; but if you want 21st century comfort and amenities this is NOT the place.
