This was a near-perfect hotel experience for me. This is a lovely boutique, with pleasant and well though out decor and nice facilities (fitness room, yoga room, yoga classes, etc). The staff members were almost all lovely – particularly Alex, who welcomed me after an unfortunate Airbnb experience and made me feel right at home. My room (a single king)... More

This is a hotel that was probably built in the 1920's or 30's and was recently completely remodeled with much good taste and respect for its history. The only shortcoming is that the room's are slightly small, but then: you can't have everything, can you? The location is superb, within walking distance to the Harbor Village and to the USS...

Good location, walking distance to Gaslamp district and Little Italy. Decent bar/Lounge on site. Parking was a rip off at $39/day. They also own the lot next door so they rip you off there at the same price. I suggest going a block or two away and save $15/day. The room we had was too small for 2 people. It... More

I recently looked for a hotel is San Diego to spend some time with my sister while she was running a conference and couldn't ignore the deal I found on HopRocket. I saved $127....a night! It was ridiculous, and the best part of was that the Sofia Hotel was right in the city so I could explore, and it was... More

We were two senior couples on a Gas Lamp Quarter holiday. Our Travelzoo mid-week deal provided excellent value. The Sofia is a classy & friendly alternative to the big chain hotels closer to the harbor and convention center. Only 4 blocks from the Gas Lamp Quarter, it features smallish updated rooms with all amenities. The only negatives I would share... More

If your looking for a full service hotel this isn't the one. To start off the rooms are very small. I travel often and I have to say this is by far the smallest room I have ever stayed in even to NYC standards. The bathroom sink and mirror is in the entry of the room so no full bathroom.... More

The Sofia Hotel is a historical hotel in a good location on the edge of the Gaslamp and within walking distance to a lot of San Diego's attractions. The hotel's exterior has a lot of charm however the interior could use some freshening up. The room itself was decent-a tad small but clean. Also, some of the staff had great... More

Love the location right on the edge of Gaslamp. Courteous and helpful staff. Clean rooms with modern appointments. We didn't eat at the restaurant but it looked busy, though seemed pricey. The rooms are a bit small and there isn't much of a view, but we didn't spend much time indoors...

Really loved The Sofia Hotel, which is located near the USS Midway/Embarcadero and Gaslamp Quarter (right where I wanted to be). Bus stops for services from Old Town and the zoo are also nearby, and the Santa Fe train depot is within walking distance as well. My room was quite small, but lovely. It had a small fridge and microwave,... More

Pros: Clean room with a comfortable bed. Perfect location. Nice hotel bar. Enjoyed having a mini fridge in the room Cons: very small room, very small bathroom with tiny shower. I know it's an inner city hotel, but really... SO small! We were planning on renting bikes there, but they were always checked out, and there's no way to reserve... More
