It was a great experience. The staff were very helpful and full of good advice. It was great to meet a fellow Liverpool supporter manning the desk. We parked and didn't use the car so parking wasn't a problem for us. Location was good for Little Italy and seafront and the trolley buses were easy to use to get around.... More

The employees are very friendly and I liked it. They are well organized, the client has the feeling he is welcome at that place. They are disposed to help you with any issue (transport, ….). The building is old but that is not a big issue. The environment is also clean.

Hotel Vyant was a really good experience overall - central location, clean rooms, great breakfast included. Our room was one of the larger ones as we are a family of 4 (2 teens). The only downside of the hotel is also one of it's strengths - location. We were less than a block from I-5 and traffic noise was noticeable... More

This is a great location, right around the corner to the Little Italy quite a bit North of Downtown, but walkable in about 15-20mins. Nice clean hotel, we didn't have much view out the window, and shared bathroom but the price of the room was reflected, it was cheap! Great staff working here, all very helpful in showing us the...

charming, great location, full of amenities...very strong recommendation! i would have anticipated noise and hassles with parking at the very least--being that the hotel is just below the freeway and in close proximity to the airport--but neither happened. on the contrary, the room was peaceful, comfortable and charming. the staff were very attentive and helpful. i had a late check...

I was due to arrive into San Diego at midnight and the hotel advised that they do not have a 24 hour reception, so I would have to retrieve my key from a dropbox. They sent me detailed instructions for this as well as a number to call in case of an emergency, but I was still a little apprehensive.... More

Everyone who works at the Hotel was very nice. The vibe and energy of the place is great too! If you're in San Diego definitely check it out. If you happen to be there on a Friday, they have a complimentary happy hour with your choice of beer, wine, and snacks.

Very cozy hotel, easy location to be reached by car, next to the freeway but just around the corner the "little Italy" 'hood with a lot of restaurants and the stop of the trolley tour train. We walked to the Gas lamp district in less than 30' and it was very pleasant and safe even at night. The room was... More
