After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor,we decided to stay here for 4 nights this October.All of the positives such as location comfort and cleanliness were all true.It is a beautiful remodeled old hotel.Staff at the front desk are very friendly and helpful.The Currant restaraunt on-site is very good,with an awesome happy hour menu. The rooms are somewhat small but perfect... More

Rooms are small and bathroom is small but cant beat the price and location. Take a room away from the street as the restaurant downstairs and the street can get noisy.2 bottles of water everyday in the room and free yoga on some days in AM is a added bonus(did not use this so can't comment).There is a $10 convenience...

The front desk staff was helpful. They have a secure storage area to store bags. It is a 15 minute walk to the convention center and there are many restaurants around. They have a small yoga studio for use as well as a small gym. It was a few blocks from the train station and a short bus or taxi... More

The Sofia hotel was our home for 6 nights, and my husband & I were very pleased with the service provided. We expected small rooms, and a bit of noise based on previous reviews that we read, however neither of these were an issue for us. We were out enjoying the city during the day, and the nightlife of the... More

Superb location at the heart of downtown within easy walking access to a lot of destinations. Rates were highly competitive given the prime location. Rooms are comfortable though decidedly on the cozy size. Given the historic nature of the hotel, this is not a negative. Traffic noise from the street was minimal but being in the heart of the city,... More

Stayed here with friend back in March for my birthday, the rooms were well equipped, clean the decor was nice as well, the hotel is in a great location very convenient to restaurants, shops, USS Midway. The downside is the parking situation.

The rooms were nice though they didn't take out the trash or resupply shampoo when they straightened the room. The valet texting service didn't work so we still ended up waiting for the car at the street. Neither did the valet service load our luggage after bring the car around. The attached restaurant doesn't open until 9 on the weekend... More

We always try to stay in more boutique hotels whenever possible. The Sofia definitely fit the bill and was very "boutiquey." The staff was great from the front desk to the bartender. The parking situation kind of stunk, but hey, parking stinks downtown anywhere (they did have reasonable valet). The location and history seemed to be really what you're paying... More

Historic Hotel, Reminds me of a NYC style hotel. Clean, well maintained. Had the room next to the elevator, didn't hear a thing! Showers kind of weird with no door so the floor gets soaked. In room coffee, free water and two bottles of nice wine for purchase. No coffee in the lobby in the mornings, guess I'm spoiled that... More

Since I was going to the baseball games at Petco, this hotel was ideally located near the stadium and to the Gaslamp. The walk is about 20-25 minutes maybe less if you're a brisk walker but for me it was perfect. The hotel has a fitness center which I used and is very clean. There's also a restaurant in the... More
