We arrived and discovered that our room did not have a tub, just a shower. My wife prefers using a tub so we asked what could be done and we were able to move to a really nice room. Everyone was really kind and helpful. It was a great place, true to its character. Wel'll go back.

A wonderful place!! Cosmopolitan Hotel is beautiful, filled with character, graciousness, and history, in a great area of San Diego, and with a great price. It has to be the best deal in San Deigo, especially compared to some nearby chain motels in Old Town area--all more expensive and with nowhere near the charm or beauty of this place I... More

What a unique and adorable restaurant and hotel. This was our first time staying in Old Town and we do not think we could have picked a better place. The restaurant is below and offers live music on Friday and Saturday nights - we had a couple appetizers and some wine on the balcony above Friday evening, it was amazing.... More

We decided to spend our last night at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Old Town because WE LOVE OLD TOWN! I have been visiting every year since I was a child and it is always a nostalgic experience. The hotel has been restored with period antiques and replicas. One can just imagine the Californios and Cowboys haunting the hallways- Did I... More

We thought we would try a different hotel in Old Town. The Cosmopolitan Hotel sounded like a nice place to stay. The staff was nice but the bed in the 4/5 suite was awful! The bed was lumpy and the pillows were hard and flat. We heard the train all night and didn't sleep at all for 2 nights. I... More

A slice of the old west, but with comfortable beds, A/C and modern plumbing. Loved the antique furniture mixed with period reproductions (e.g, light fixtures and toilette). Great courtyard restaurant, plus live music (acoustic guitar when I was there). Didn't miss a TV or phone. Would have liked a stronger WiFi signal. And the authentic antique chairs are attractive, but... More

I've always loved Old Town and this hotel is just perfect! It's like staying at a friend's house - who happens to have a very nice house. Lovely room, very clean, friendly staff. Don't look for tv's, phones or minibars! Reserved parking for guests is a huge plus. I'll never stay anywhere else!

If you are looking for luxury, high end, modern comfort, this is not a place for you. But if you want to experience a wonderful piece of history and quaint, comfortable, basic rooms, this is the place to stay. You truly feel you are back in a different time. The service, the welcome, nothing short of amazing. The staff is... More
