Stayed a night for a Giants game. The room is very modern. The only thing I didnt particularly like was the "no back door" on the shower because water just got out and made the floor pretty wet. Otherwise, I had no problem with the room. Perfect location! Staff was helpful. Would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Thin walls. Spotty service-told by one staff member I was SOL. Told by another staff member I had a number of options.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I highly recommend the Sofia Hotel. The service was great. The rooms were amazing. My wife and I stayed in a deluxe room and it was beyond what we expected. The location is perfect. Everything is at a walking distance. I will definitely come back to that hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I will stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Perfectly located between the train station & Petco Park and the Gaslamp District. Caters to their guests. My second stay and will stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Sofia San Diego, close to Gaslamp District"
Nice historic hotel that has been upgraded to modern standards but retains historic charm. Excellent staff, especially Brian at the front desk. Good central location, easy walk to Petco Park, Little Italy and gaslamp district restaurants and barsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I'm on San Diego for work. The Sofia is newly renovated. Though the rooms are somewhat small they are extremely comfortable. The bathroom is very functional, and attractive. The sleeping area is very comfortable, (feathered comforters, adequate pillows). Great wi-fi, large TV, ample desk space to get work done. I could not be more pleased. Then you […] add in a great and friendly staff from the front desk, to the bellman, to the woman to care for the rooms. Then you add in a really cool bar/restaurant and top it with a great location (about three blocks from the gas lamp and 15 minute walk to the ballpark) and I could not think of a better place. Thanks Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I will do it again!"
I'm definitely coming back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall pleased. A but small but clean and good use of space.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent stay, courteous staff and perfect locati"
Everything about our stay was perfect except for one thing: the bed was a bit too hard for my taste. Other than that this is a five star getaway. The staff was very accommodating, eager to serve and friendly. We texted the valet from our room so that the car was waiting for us when we came down. We loved that service because we didn't have to waste […] time lounging in the lobby waiting for valet service. I would definitely recommend this hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth what I paid at all"
All lies. No separate room and living room. Very old style. Small rooms loud noise from outside. Expensive parking. Tiny elevators Would never ever stay there. Can't believe they had starts more then one. Stay away and there are plenty of better hotels with same pricesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location for being downtown and easy access to the ballpark. Loved the complimentary yoga class offed a few days a week. Very helpful staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
IT WAS GREAT!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay for a quick meeting or a business trip"
The was a nicely renovated hotel pretty much within walking distance of everything in downtown San Diego. I was even able to walk to the baseball stadium on consecutive days within 15 mins. Rooms were kind of small but very clean, updated, and comfortable. Gym had enough to get in a regular "on the road" workout and hotel offered many amenities that […] make this a good fit for the business traveler or person who doesn't spend a lot of time in the hotel room while on vacation. The restaurant on the first level (not associated with the hotel) has great happy hour specials and terrific food. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room Was Tiny!!"
While we loved the location, service and just about everything else about the hotel, our jaws dropped when we walked into the room. Thank goodness we were only staying one night! Granted it was just a single, but it was literally the smallest hotel room we've ever stayed in before.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely, accommodating, comfy. Great location. Good restaurant on premises. Great food and drinks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great front desk and fun restaurant"
Comfortable if small rooms a few blocks from the all the trolley stops, made it so easy to get around San Diego. The downtown area is getting a great face lift and the Sofia is right in the midst. Great hotel for a couples get away. The front desk staff were very helpful and every one wore a smile. The room amenities are an extra charge, so it would […] be nice if they provided cream for the good in room coffee. I enjoyed a glass of wine and appetizers in the pretty restaurant too.

"It was okay"
I was surprised that they only offered $30 valet parking per night which was disappointing and found it to be a bit of a walk from all the festivities. Nice hotel but I wouldn't stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loved this place!"
We had to pay $30 to park our car there but it's expensive to park anywhere, and our mini fridge was broken but they brought us a brand new one in less than 5 minutes! The service was amazing!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very comfortable bed with nice room amenities and polite staff. Location is within walking distance of marina district, Seaport village, the ferry to Coronado, and many fine restaurants. Hotel's restaurant and bar top notch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed here for a meeting at the convention center. If your meeting is at the far end of the Center it is more like a 20 minute walk then 10, but you get to walk through the neighborhood and check out restaurants and stores.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Comfy Boutique Hotel"
I liked being within a few blocks of Gaslamp. Easy walk to restaurants and nightlife and yet not stuck in the middle of it. Very good room rates for San Diego. Only a couple of blocks walk to the Amtrak Station also. The room may feel a little small to some people, but I thought it was very well updated and modernized for an historic hotel. Service […] staff was very helpful. I used valet service for parking and it was well worth it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quaint and Historic"
Great hotel in the heart of downtown San DiegoGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fabulous from valet to checkout"
Terrific choice we made in selecting the Sofia. Extremely accommodating for our pet needs and late arrival from an overseas flight. exceptionally polite and responsive staff, from the valets to the bellhop to the front desk and cleaning staff. Would stay here again on a moments notice!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Like many historic buildings, the room was tiny and cramped and parking prices were over $25. After a long day of travel I asked the front desk if there was a nearby store to purchase cough medicine. He sent us to the local Ralph's, which was closed. The shower had half a glass wall, the back side had no door, so water got out easily if you didn't […] stand close to the front. It's a "trendy" place, but won't be staying again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very European chic, so smaller rooms than you might be used to, but great location, very attentive staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved it here!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent but be aware of additional fees..."
Perhaps we are naive, but we were surprised to find $75 in hidden fees from the hotel staff tidying up our room and one local call. Otherwise, the Sofia is beautiful, clean, and convenient. I did find a coupon on the Gas Lamp District's website for 30% off. The hotel would not honor this after we checked in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful quaint hotel"
Although the rooms are on the small size (similar to that in many European cities), it was perfect for me. The price value was outstanding and the location was very convenient. The nearby coffee shop and restaurants were also great and convenient being right next door. Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Quaint Hotel in Downtown San Diego, I will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Sofia Hotel"
Found this hotel on hotels.com and got a great rate. The Sofia hotel is in a good location and it is like new on the inside. The rooms are newly and nicely furnished. The room and bathroom were a little small, but they worked for me. I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place was great! The location is close to everything. The service is great!! All of the staff was professional and friendly. The bell hop/concierge that checked us in, Joseph, gave us a map and gave us great directions and recommendations for restaurants. The rooms are small just like most hotels in downtown locations (just like NYC) but well organized […] and neat. I would stay here again and again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
loved this hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Love the places close to everythingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were very happy with our stay until final checkout. When we checked in we were told the wifi was free and the bottled water was also complementary. However, at check out we were required to pay an additional $8.94 for a service fee to cover the cost of the wifi (did not use) and the two bottles of water. They should be honest at the beginning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to convention center"
This is a really good hotel. It was clean, the staff was very helpful, and it was within walking distance of the convention center and some good shopping and restaurants. The room was a tad on the small side, but not terribly cramped.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice all aroundGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very clean. The room may have been small, however it large enough for a couple of days. Bike loan was newer and easy to take out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to everything"
The hotel rooms are a little on the small side. Nice location. The staff is extremely helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was worried at first when they said the room was small...several times. But when I got in I was very pleased with it overall. Clean, modern, plenty of plugs and amenities for the $8 hotel fee. I would have lived to have stayed longer to relax. Next time for sure. All the staff was very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great rooms close to gas lamp and downtown"
Location is off gas lamp district enough that you don't get the noise and revelers partying on the street outside, classy lobby, neat bar and restaurant. Rooms small, it's an older building, but they a every nicely furnished and clean. Parking is easy - we would stay again, staff is courteous and valet hustles.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"SMALL rooms but loved it"
Perfect location, amazing food, boutique hotel. Downfall- very small rooms. However, this wasn't my first stay at the Sophia and it won't be my last.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The overall stay was good, but they charged almost $10 to hold my bag for 2 hours... All the other places I've stayed did that service for freeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Safe and central location to gas lamp"
The stay was fantastic. The room was smaller than expected, however, the staff took fantastic detailsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"SMALL SUITES, SMALL ELEVATORS, GREAT LOCATION"
First Impression: great location, great valet guy, prompt and courteous. Very nice front desk staff, worked me a great rate on upgrading to suite. Second impression: holy heck this is a small elevator! not for more than 4 people especially with more than a carry on. Third impression: very nice suite, but very small for a suite. comfortable furniture, […] chairs sit a bit high, but have footrests, nice fridge, microwave and free bottles of water, and wine priced good. very small bathroom and small toilet. I am 6'2 and I felt like I was going to crush this micro toilet. Bed very firm for a suite which worked for me, but if you want extra plush, another option for you might be in order. Helpful room service, prompt and thorough. I used the app Lyft to get around town and all was well. I would probably stay here again due to staff, but there are better suites out there for sure.
