4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My husband and I stayed here for two nights over Memorial Day weekend. The location is perfect, surrounded by tons of restaurants, blocks from the ocean. Rooms are clean and beds are great. The cafe under the hotel serves excellent coffee.Word of warning: do not stay in the rooms directly over that cafe (217, 219). We did on the first... More

This hotel is in a great location, right beside Little Italy and a 5 minute drive from the seafront. Rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was a little on the cramped side, with the sink in the bedroom. The mini fridge was extremely loud and didn't get cold, so we just kept it switched off. The... More

This hotel is located in a great location. It is very close to many great restuarants and walking distance to the Gas-lamp district. The hotel was clean but very small and the parking is even smaller. Over all we would stay there again.

My wife and I stayed here while on our honeymoon. We had room 302, a perfectly quaint room with a balcony overlooking the intersection of Date Street and India Street. Fantastic location, clean room and everything we could ask for in a boutique hotel. The staff were friendly, Penny the guard dog was as friendly as could be. The Pizzaria... More

Noisy due to proximity to the train line (about a block away, but train noise carried at night). Otherwise, a great find. Well situated in Little Italy, with great little cafe and pizzerias downstairs. About three minutes' walk to the trolley line which connects with the rest of town. Room very small, but comfortable. Friendly staff, with small things (free... More

Comfortable, modern room. Smack in the middle of Little Italy, which is a fun neighborhood with plenty of good places to eat (not just Italian) and drink. There is a tram stop nearby, though I mostly walked to downtown, where I had my meetings (full disclosure: I am used to walking considerable distances in my home city). I had a... More

We stumbled upon this hotel after having had to leave one of the big luxury hotels due to end of our booking and the big place with “very personalized service and attention” was not capable of accommodating us while we were unable to return to Mexico due to the hurricane Odile which damaged SJD airport and shut down also LAP...

Great little hotel in Little Italy. Right where all the action is. Rooms are small but very clean and quiet. Staff is excellent. Limited parking for the hotel, but this really wasn't a problem. Very close to all the attractions San Diego has to offer. You will need a car to get around, but that's a minor inconvenience. Many excellent... More

My husband and I stayed at La Pensione for a long weekend. We did not realize the Art Walk was happening that weekend but were pleased to participate. The hotel was clean and nicely decorated. However the room was very cramped. This was not a surprise as they state on their website that the hotel has a European feel. That... More

Wow! Did I pick a great hotel or what? My fiance and I had never been to San Diego before and I found the BEST hotel to stay at on accident! Great price, great location, small boutique-ey feel, and great staff! Easy check in, easy check out, and VERY clean! We have decided that we will make a yearly trip... More
