Few amenities, no available breakfast other than coffee set out on the 2nd floor. Was surprised by an unexpected $16/day "service fee" charge that was not listed on the reservation, which caused my bill to be $86 higher than expected when I booked and payed in advanced. Good location, not far from the Convention Center and Seaport.

Cute and unique property although was hard to slide open the bathroom sliding door. Overall it’s a good stay for a night.

Air conditioner was not working. No dinning

quite, close the convention center, tourist spots

Good location; hotel is clean but drab

great location. Close to everything. Wish the restraint was open

Fantastic staff - courteous and professional, without coming across like they need to act like you’re their best friend.

Over all good would stay again

Unique location, super clean.

Location was convenient!

The coffee shop on site was a great value. The heating unit madeca loud noise

The Sofia hotel stay we had over President's Day Weekend was excellent. This nicely refurbished older building/hotel seems to be doing all that it can to be welcoming and as-upscale-as-possible... It is true that the rooms are not large (due to it being an older building), but they make up for it with friendly service and clean rooms. I liked that there were two bottles of wine in our room, for purchase if we wanted, twenty-two bucks a bottle (one red, one white), and that they have filtered water dispensers at which you can fill your water bottles back up. Parking (at the hotel in a big open lot behind the building) is forty bucks (Feb 2021), so we opted for cheaper by dropping our things off and driving to a further lot. Due to Covid, at the time of our visit, their restaurant and bar were not open, but everything (Gaslamp Area, Little Italy and Downtown) are all walking distance with plenty of choices of places to eat. The bed was comfortable, the room was very clean. The in-room coffee maker was an average type (meaning not very good coffee), but there is a café on the corner of the building where we bought better drip coffee (cappuccinos, etc offered there as well; it's a chain coffee place, but thankfully not Star-$s). I'd certainly stay here again if in the area and the price is right. Overall, we had a great stay.

Love the location central to downtown. Tried Sushi 2, delish. Would recommend. The front desk staff were wonderfully hospitable. The lobby was decorated beautifully. Our room was clean & perfectly sized. We received an upgraded room which was a corner overlooking the city on the 7th floor. Couldn't compare, but we were told our rooms were newly remodeled.

Cozy little rooms. Although the couple in the next room were having very loud adult relations which was interesting for my two children

We happened to get a room that was not set up very good for the sink area (all sink and no counter space and no where to put clothes or toiletries in the bathroom (one hook is all) and the room had a weird smell even after it was cleaned!! We loved the coffee area with the fridge and microwave!!

The staff here was very friendly and helpful. I was staying for a business convention and they seemed to be able to accommodate us all very nicely. The bed was a little firm for my taste, but the restaurant was incredible. I highly recommend the mahi mahi sandwich.
