    Lovely hotel for a vacation to Downtown San Diego

    It's location is perfect. Walking distance to pretty much everything you would want to do downtown; gaslamp, marina, horton plaza, etc. Room was perfect for me and my girlfriend. Staff was very accomodating.

    Parking.

    Perfect recharge station

    Nice lobby with friendly staff greeting us upon arrival. Lots of charm with short excerpts posted throughout highlighting the history of the building. Room was comfortable with all needed amenities for a place to stay. The purpose of our stay was the city. This room gave us a comfy pillow top mattress to rest and recharge each night with complimentary water keeping us hydrated. Workout facility was nice and hardly crowded during our stay. No complaints and would gladly stay here again.

    Rooms were small. There was no view including limited sunlight through the window plus the "green" lighting made it so you had to turn every light in the room on when getting ready. Bathroom was small and no vent :-/. Closet didn't open all the way due to being obstructed by the bedside table (again, room was small). I'm being as honest as possible with these negative, but the purpose of the room was met and the pros far exceeded the cons during our stay.

    Payment for services I did not ask for or use

    I was surprised to have to pay a mandatory fee for services that I did not use or want. I thought that was very unfair of the hotel.

    Terrible! The worst hotel I've ever been in!

    Nothing

    This is by far the worst hotel I've ever been in! The room, (505) was so small that I think they had to build the room around the bed. It was so small that the bathroom had to have a sliding door. I truly don't believe a normal door would be able to open / close. The air conditioning didn't work and the overall area seemed seedy. Numerous bailed bond companies with likely clients in the area. When I asked about the area the clerk advised, "Just stay on Broaday."

    Top notch accomodations

    The room was small, but comfortable. It had everything you could want, including a mini frig. The location was great. Within walking, or public transportation, to everything downtown San Diego has to offer.

    The valet parking was expensive.

    Not for those who seek privacy and quiet

    The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the bed was comfortable.

    The room was very loud. We were able to hear in the most precise detail what was going on in the room next to us (including our neighbor's conversations and television preferences). We ask to be moved, but the second room was equally as bad.

    Very friendly staff, the location was perfect. Valet parking was great. The room was smaller than expected, but was well equipped.

About

Overview

The Sofia Hotel offers guests a welcoming stay in a gothic-revival building that was built in 1926. Situated in the lively Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego, this elegantly refined and historic hotel offers guests convenient access to San Diego's most bustling area. Any guests who enjoy the opera will be glad to know the hotel is a mere six-minute walk from the San Diego Opera. Of course, guests who aren't so enthused by the prospects of an opera will be glad to know they're close to many shops, bars, restaurants, and entertainment venues. Each of the elegant rooms provides guests with designer toiletries to properly outfit every bathroom. Meanwhile, every room also offers guests work desks so they may meet a deadline or work on solo projects during their travels. Flat-screen TVs are also offered in each room for guests to enjoy a wide selection of shows and entertainment. Guests are also offered access to wireless Internet and each room provides guests with a minifridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Guests can upgrade to a suite to enjoy extra living space, a rich décor, and a whirlpool tub to relax and refresh the body and mind. If guests would like to further indulge in relaxation, they're able to take advantage of the hotel's in-room spa services. Room service is also offered to each guest. A 24-hour fitness center is open to all guests who are looking to break a sweat, even if it's the middle of the night. A yoga studio and on-site restaurant are also offered to guests.
