I had an unexpected two night trip to San Diego and found myself here. I worked wirelessly and took a nap in the Courtyard. I walked to downtown. I walked to Little Italy. I engaged in conversation with staff and owners. All good. Pleasantly surprised!!

As the other reviews mention, this is a very quaint hotel in Little Italy with friendly staff, clean rooms, free wifi, and free breakfast. Parking was a little out of the way, given that street cleaning is on early wednesday mornings, but this was expected. However, despite my research, I unexpectedly found my stay to be very noisy. In fact,... More

What a lovely hotel! Comfortable room, the ambience of a luxury boutique bed and breakfast inn, and the nicest staff! Thought it would be noisy at night but it was very quiet in our room. Happy hour upon arrival and breakfast provided in the morning. The perfect getway.

My son and I picked this hotel for one night since we absolutely love spending time in downtown San Diego, namely Little Italy. We were dropped off so we had no issues dealing with parking a car. The hotel is on a busy intersection but once inside it is like a little oasis from the busy chaotic streets outside. The... More

My wife and I got really surprised. We traveled a lot in California and within this price range Vyvant was the very best option. Good location, very clean. But the strongest highlight is the staff. Very kind and helpfull, all of them, specially Ashley and Taylor. And the breakfest is delicious.

Received a 2 night stay as a gift, and found the location, staff, and room to be wonderful. We upgraded to a room with 2 a kitchenette, plus a private bath (a no-brainer for us) and slept very well. With the front of the hotel facing I-5 (very close) and the side street also being very busy, we were afraid... More

Hotel Vyvant provided a wonderful experience during my recent stay. Exemplary service from everyone I encountered, my room was lovely and all at a fair and reasonable price. Conveniently located within strolling distance to San Diego's Little Italy, finding dinig was a breeze. Looking forward to my next visit!

Hotel Vyvant is simply lovely; a beautifully furnished little boutique hotel just steps from Little Italy. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. The only drawback (and what kept it from 5 stars) is the lack of onsite parking. We stayed for 3 nights and were able to find parking nearby each night though, so it worked out well. Would... More
