The location was perfect for my first time visit. I had also requested an upper floor with a view of the harbour if possible. It was and I couldn't believe how lucky I was and how kind of the hotel to acknowledge the request. The coffee place and pizza eatery next door both excellent. If I ever return to San... More

La Pensione is right in the heart of San Diego's Little Italy district. Nice greeting upon arrival and they have their own garage where you can self-park. Then just walk about and enjoy the sights and sounds. A high value in the city. An awesome corner room looking out at all the activity below on a Saturday night. Comfy beds... More

Stayed for 4 day's here as part of our trip around California yes the rooms are quite small and not much hanging and storage space, a bit strange having the sink in the bedroom, having said that the room was very clean and looked towards the sea. The location was key we could walk to Balboa park in 20 min... More

Booked on EasytoBook.com using Room 77 app. Room was very small and noisy and the blinds didn't make the room dark enough (you could see right them). Customer service, cleanliness, and location were excellent though.

Great location in the heart of Little Italy. I enjoyed the friendliness of the staff. The rooms are a bit small, but will suffice if you aren't staying in San Diego too long. I'm sure it'll get noisy with the construction of the building across the street before too long. I'm glad they didn't waste putting in a restaurant since... More

All staff is exceptional in providing high quality service throughout our five day stay. Property clean and conveniently located to excellent restaurants, bars and access to Trolly Tours and Amtrak. I would wish for better parking. Spaces are limited and hard to maneuver in/out.

We loved the location of this hotel in Little Italy, plus close to public transportation. We got a room on the top floor which was awesome. The room was really nice and we had a great view of the bay. The bathroom was great. The price was better than most hotels in the Gaslamp area. The only issue we had... More

Pros: rooms look very modern and elegant. Location was central to everything. Including the ocean. Cons: major construction next door during June 2015. Probably last till 2016. Construction noise in the morning, cruise ship horn and train. So hope your not a late sleeper. Room was tiny. Under 200 sq ft. Overall I think the pros outweigh the cons. Tip:... More

My husband and I were visiting from Orange county for the weekend. The hotel was extremely convenient, located in the heart of little Italy and a 20 minute walk to the gaslamp quarter. The rooms were small but clean and modern. Our room had a window overlooking little Italy and to the right we could see the harbor. The only... More
