I loved this hotel. It was small and had the feel of a European hotel, but perfectly well appointed. The staff was incredibly helpful and lovely. The location was perfect for dining, walking, and getting to and from the airport. I highly recommend it to anyone staying in Little Italy or San Diego in general.

This is a great little hotel in a wonderful neighborhood full of coffee shops, restaurants, wine bars, parks, around the corner from a public plaza. The staff is so friendly, beds are comfortable, hotel is clean with a nice continental breakfast. Great walking district. Public transit nearby.

This gem of a boutique hotel is located about 1/2 block from Little Italy. We were not familiar with San Diego when we booked our trip, so relied on TripAdvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. We got a great price (we booked several months in advance), and our expectations were exceeded. Every single staff member is friendly and helpful, going out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Our room was fairly small, but exceptionally clean, with everything we could need...a refrigerator, microwave, TV, coffee maker - and a very comfortable bed. We really liked that the sink is outside of the toilet/shower room. The complimentary breakfast was small, but the food was great - fresh fruit and delicious pastries, yogurt and granola. We were able to park our car in a nearby parking garage for only $20/day - and this included in and out privileges. We were literally 1/2 block from the Little Italy Food Hall and the surrounding piazza - and dozens of restaurants - many of which have daily happy hours. If you are there on a Saturday, you will be treated to the amazing Farmer's Market only steps away from the hotel. We also were walking distance to many things - Petco Park, Balboa Park, Seaport Village, the Gaslamp District, the USS Midway and more (we are walkers). We can't wait to return to San Diego to see more of this wonderful city and we will definitely return to the Urban Boutique!

This place has the perfect location, 1/2 a block from the heart of little Italy. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is a boutique hotel, which means you won't get stuff like room service, a pool, or a spa. The room was comfortable and cost, with nice hardwood floors (I personally hate carpets in a hotel because I seriously doubt whether they can get adequately cleaned). This place is a neighborhood gem.

I booked this very small hotel ahead of my trip But when checking in another couple was quoted half of what I was paying for that night - asked about it and they said that was what was available that night?? I asked for a manager to contact me and after a week I have heard nothing yet!it is a very very small room and continental breakfast was decent but no where to sit if hotel is full

Hello, Prices vary from day to day depending on demand, Hotel pricing is just like airline pricing. Nobody on a plane is paying the same fare.. I apologize if you do not agree with the policy. Nahum Jimenez GM
