Our group consisted of two grandparents and two grand children, both 9 years old. We stayed in one of two apartments with 2 rooms, which worked out fine for our 5 night stay. For us, the location was excellent. Easy access to Lego Land (28 miles via the freeway), San Diego Zoo, Sea World as well as the water front... More

Had a great stay here. One thing this hotel has learnt and practices well is great customer service. Nothing was too much, everything practiced with eagerness to please and a smile. What I expect from a hotel. So my room was a good price, had a shared bathroom which was fine, the sink was blocked but was fixed quickly. The... More

This is a great little boutique hotel. Terrific, convenient location (easy access to I-5) in a fun little neighborhood (near Little Italy, walking distance to Saturday market). The staff is very nice & extremely accommodating. My room was charming, complete with full kitchen and roomy bath. Happy hour on Friday & Saturday evenings featuring wine & local craft beer is...

Parking was very difficult to find. However, the stay was very clean and nice. They were very accommodating. It was a peaceful place to sleep, people in hotel were not noisy at all. I would definitely stay there again.

I had to change hotels the same day I checked in, at 9:30 p.m. , due to horrible accommodations. Luckily, I found Hotel Vyvant online and checked in one hour later! My 2 night stay was pure bliss, thanks to the wonderful, competent, always smiling staff at hotel Vyvant. The hotel is more like a beautifully restored bed and breakfast-... More

We recently stayed here for a short trip and the staff was more than perfect. They were very friendly, the room was clean and the location is great. We were able to walk to restaurants in little Italy and there is a convenience store close by as well. Even though they don't have a private parking lot, parking was a... More

This quick stay was for an overnight for my wife's Birthday. I booked a suite for the night and the two full beds were perfect for my two kids (9 & 16) and my wife and I had our own separate queen bed and room. Very Clean room. and though you are staying in a building built around 1910, the... More

Excellent location, walking distance to the heart of Little Italy, short cab ride to Gaslamp Quarter. Jewel of a boutique hotel. Clean with lots of character. Warm greeting upon arrival from Denise and Becka. Impressive customer service, very sincere. Cold bottle of sparkling wine & card wishing us a happy anniversary compliments of Vyvant awaited us in our room -... More

The staff cared about you and want to make sure that not all your stay was nice at the hotel but that you had an amazing experience in San Diego. We went to them everyday to get advise on what we should do that day and they always had suggestions to what we were feeling like and told us what... More

Although very happy with our stay at hotel, I have to areas of concern. First parking is a nightmare around hotel, although we were lucky as maybe hotel wasn't that busy, but we were able to park in loading area around hotel. Only real complaint is the term "kitchenette" in my mind refers to a small kitchen, including a stove... More
