I found this gem surfing the internet while looking for a getaway weekend for couples.Diwntown San Diego within walking distance to Little Italy/ Gas lamp district this is a fab spot! The hotel has a very curious name and in my one overnight night experience I found myself wishing we could stay a few days longer. The cocktail hour was... More

I'm a fan of Hotel Vyvant; I like that it feels like you've entered an old, spacious house complete with chandeliers. The folks working there were exceedingly kind and seemed pleased to be working where they are. We had two bathrooms, one with a jacuzzi and the other with the shower/bath combo. You're truly about 5 minutes from excellent restaurants... More

This hotel worked out great for us, we drove from Palm Springs to San Diego to visit a friend. Our room was quite nice, two bathrooms! One with a large tub/jacuzzi and another regular bathroom with a shower. Even though the hotel is near a busy highway, sleeping was not problem, the hotel seemed quite quiet. We could park right...

This was a small get-away for our anniversary. I booked the SPA KING for our stay and thoroughly enjoyed the spa tub. It was a nice surprise that my 6'4"/265lb hubbs and I both fit. No stretching out for him, but still room enough to enjoy our bubblebath. The room was smaller than the website photos made it appear but... More

This is the best hotel and service I ever had in the US or in Europe. Located in the heart of Little Italy, the hotel has the decor of a European B&B coupled with young, energetic, and friendly staff. The daily breakfast was not just excellent but all of the food and beverages are provided by local vendors from the... More

Top rating to the front desk staff. All were very friendly and most helpful. The breakfast items are far above what is usually presented. Great coffee, pastries and "the best" granola. MAny thanks to the staff and owners of Hotel Vyvant.

Nicely appointed, centrally located European style hotel in Little Italy. Good location for walking to Balboa Park, the harbor and downtown. A number of good restaurants, cafes and shops are also within walking distance. The hotel is clean and comfortable, with an attractive decor and a nice internal courtyard for reading and relaxing. The continental breakfast is tops: coffee, granola... More

My husband and I needed a place close to the airport since we had an early fight, and decided that Little Italy would be the perfect location. We were able to book a room at Hotel Vivant on short notice, and Erin at the front desk was super accommodating. Each room is unique, so she allowed me to take a... More

Located in Little Italy, and close to all the shops, restaurants, Farmer's Market, car rental (if needed) and a very short cab ride to Balboa Park, airport, etc. This place is simple, clean, peaceful and the beds and linens are wonderful! Breakfast is good, fruit is always available, and Happy Hour is generous- local brews, wines, cheeses and meats. The... More

My wife and I had a great time staying at Hotel Vyvant this past weekend. We arrived long before the official check in time but the lady at the front desk got the staff to ready our room immediately so that we could freshen up before visiting friends. The Rooms are beautiful had a relaxing tub, a comfortable bed, and... More
