This hotel is great! I have stayed in it during my last two visits to San Diego. It is right at Little Italy's door, in very close proximity to a plethora of quality restaurants and Ballast Point Brewery. Oh yes, and the price is about the best you can find if you want to stay in the city!

So excited to check out this new place! My two kids and I were VERY pleased with our accommodations at this charming hotel. The people were so friendly and helpful, always giving us suggestions of where to go and how to get there. The location was perfect for us...Being so close to lots of great restaurants and attractions. We enjoyed... More

We stayed here over the 4th. This hotel is located in the heart of Little Italy. There is a pizza place & small Italian coffee shop on the main level. This hotel is not large. The rooms are not huge. If you are looking for a "Hilton" type stay, this is not the place for you. If you want a... More

We only stayed in the hotel for one night but the room was nice, although small. There isn't a lot of space to walk around the bed of for storing luggage but wasn't too much of a problem for us. Bed was comfortable and room was clean and tidy. The area is great as there are so many choices of... More

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.
