We were travelling as a family party of 6, grandparents, parents, children (14 and 10). We had a suite and a separate room for three nights and were very satisfied with our stay. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were basic but very tasty, (granola, pastries, fruit, yoghurt, fruit juice, cheese and sliced meat). My daughter would... More

I had a great stay at the Hotel Vyvant. I was coming to San Diego for a night and was recommended the hotel by a friend. As you can see from my other reviews, I generally stay in higher end 4 and 5 star luxury branded hotels, but decided to take him up on the suggestion. Not only was the... More

Very friendly and helpful staff!! Clean room (except of condom in room safe). We stayed in a queen room with shared bathroom. Bathroom was always clean ! Safe and good located in Little Italy (close to many restaurants) and close to the Airport. Not noisy at all but the view was directly towards a wall (2-3 feet). But the breakfast... More

Very nice staff, good location, great to be given breakfast. We stayed in a suite with 2 bedrooms & bathroom. Both rooms had a TV and one had a small kitchenette corner. Nice toiletries. The only downside can be the noise from the street. The hotel is situated on a busy 3 lane street leading to the motorway. Did not... More

Nice hotel, very good location (close to Airport, Little Italy, Downtown and Balboa park). Not noisy despite the highway and the airport nearby. A couple of towels were not completely clean. Some rooms have shared bathroom which is annoying. Great breakfast.

Good afternoon, My stay at the Vyvant hotel was exquisite. I would not have imagined a better place to live in if I visit San Diego again. My experience was without a doubt flawless. Right from the hospitality as soon as we stepped into the door till departure everything was taken care of with utmost passion and hostility. The ambience... More

Nothing bad to say. A very nice small hotel with comfortable and clean rooms. The staff were extremely helpful with the whole ambience being very relaxing. Conveniently situated with a 2 min walk to the metro which takes you downtown of just walk there (15 mins). One word of advice, read the parking instructions they give you! 7 eleven is... More

The facilities of the hotel are excellent. The rooms were clean, well maintained and welcoming. The bathroom was also maintained well, although the shower room shared the same bathroom floor as the rest of the bathroom, which is a bit odd and after showering there is inevitably water everywhere. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. There is no hotel... More

Desk staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was a little smaller than expected but the addition of the kitchen was very nice. Overall room was comfortable. Unfortunately one of the bedroom areas was right underneath the upstairs hallway, and the noise filtered through badly. No storage for clothing other than the little closet, had to work out of suitcases.... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry to hear you stay was not satisfactory. We understand noise can be an issue because of the old building and I am sorry to hear it was a problem for you. We will look into additional closet options for the room with less storage and are continually... More
