Comfortable, cute boutique hotel with modestly-sized yet cared-for rooms. Sofia is located right at the top end of San Diego's night life area. Walking distance to the waterfront, Little Italy, Balboa Park, Petco Park. Plenty of choice nearby for
food, drinks. It is a winner!
Location was perfect, we we're able to walk to Gas Lamp district and Little Italy for great food and entertainment. Just a couple of blocks to San Diego bay for a bike ride to Sea Port Village. The room was very clean and bed was comfortable. The
air conditioner was a bit noisy but I'm a very light sleeper so it may not bother most people. Breakfast was really good at the Currant and the bar was nice. We would stay here again.
I called and had no problems with a late arrival. The room was not particularly spacious and for two people it would have been a bit crowded, but the bed was oh so comfortable - the shower was amazing with a rain shower head directly from the
ceiling. The amenities are amazing with free yoga classes, free bicycles, tours on the weekends. The restaurant attached had amazing food. - Really a very nice stay - Thank you
The hotel is a few blocks from the main area of the gaslamp which is nice. There are a variety of restaurants within walking distance from cheap to expensive. The hotel has a bar and restaurant. The staff was all very helpful and welcoming. They
bicycles you an borrow for 3 hours which was great to ride down to the ships and museum along the harbor and not worry about parking. We went to the farmers market in little Italy about 4 blocks away and had some good food and people watching. Yes the room are comfortable, but they are small. They do a good job with designing it so you have what you need all within that space. The hotel area is Great but our "city view" room looked out onto the courthouse which was not so wonderful. The hotel offers complimentary yoga a few times a week and has a yoga room and gym available to guests. I loved that! I will definitely stay here again. We got a great last min deal too
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Other reviews said valet and self parking were the same price but it was actually $10 difference and the lot is right next to the building.
The rooms are small, but clean and comfortable. The location is great...the Gaslamp Quarter is just a few blocks away and you can easily walk to the Midway Museum and Seaport Village. Ideal for a single or couple, but I can't image the rooms being
large enough for a family. As for me, no complaints, I found it to be everything as advertised and the perfect location.
My fiance came down from L.A. for an overnight stay in San Diego to see friends and go to the Spirits Festival. The location is perfect for just walking around and exploring the gas lamp area and in close proximity to the water! The hotel itself
is very small but that's all in it's charm. The room was on the smaller size but very clean and everything we needed was provided for. The little restaurant downstairs ended up being a great spot for happy and had EXCELLENT service! We would definitely consider this place on our next visit to the area.
