"Very nice hotel. Nice people."
I enjoyed everything about this stay with the exception of the parking bill. $35 a night is just not a norm where I'm from. I'd rather you raise the price and let me park for free or provide me with a less expensive alternative.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Adorable, unique hotel"
This hotel was adorable. The rooms are quite small, but I was traveling for business and did not find the room size to be inconvenient. Whoever designed the layout of the rooms made use of every available space. The staff at the hotel were all very nice, and the restaurant was delicious (and had multiple happy hours a day --- huge bonus). For the nights […] when I ate outside of the hotel restaurant, the gaslamp district was only a few blocks away (~7-8 min walk). I would definitely stay here again.

"Nice location, liked it"
Although the hotel has been updated, being built in 1926 has limitations. My room was clean and service was great, but the room was very small. However, the location was great. One block away from the trolley orange line and a short walk to Horton Plaza and Gas Lamp. It's a nice location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrible for business! Please see the details!"
Terrible for a business trip! Let me tell you why: 1. The Wifi is not working at all for my first couple of days. The connection was unstable and super slow. While I was in the room, I found the Wifi signal from Bristol hotel across the street better than Sofia's. 2. When I told the front desk about my wifi problem, the staff (blond lady) was very rude […] and asked me to call the Wifi company to fix it. I was treated like a maintenance person, but I had to use the internet that day. Even after spending an hour on the phone, the wifi was still not working. I ended up coming down to the lobby to finish my work. 3. TV remote was apparently a back-up, and it was not working until they changed one. 4. I was told that the manager would call me to explain, but after a month I did not hear anything. Oh, I did leave a feedback paper in the room. After all, I guess they just do not care about their customer anyway. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Barely place to move.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel and restaurant are beautiful. Great views and great service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is an ideal location for a San Diego getaway. We were able to easily walk to Gas Lamp, Little Italy, and Midway. The hotel is a few blocks from any one of these things, which we thought was great for reducing street noise when going to bed. Room was small but wonderfully decorated and the bed was craaaaazy comfy. Only complaint was the bathroom […] door is see through, which only matters if you're other is at the sink, otherwise you can't see in. Close to public transport. 10 minute drive from zoo. Also enjoyed the complimentary yoga classes. If you bring a car be aware of $34/night parking, valets are quick and helpful though. Great spot, highly recommend for a couple Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Clean & commfortable room at great price point"
Room was small, but clean & comfortable. Staff was friendly & helpful. Restaurant off the lobby served dinner until 10/10:30 PM – convenient for late arrival, with quality service & food. Location on the edge of the city’s government district likely added to the panhandling population (prevalent throughout the city) in the blocks around the hotel. Would […] definitely recommend for anyone looking for a clean and comfortable room at a great price point. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel in a great location"
Exceptional value. The Sofia is grand from the outside, comfortable on the inside. The hotel staff was outstanding. My room, while quite small, was perfect for me. Very clean, stylish, and comfortable. And the hotel is in a great location. The only complaint I would have is that the wi-fi was weak and slow.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

One night stay to be near Amtrak Santa Fe station for early train. Service was impeccable in hotel and their restaurant Current. Room was tiny, bathroom huge. Would absolutely stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Sofia is a pretty diamond!"
Great hotel, great service, great location!! Too bad downtown starts early, it woulda been nice to sleep in a little bitGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super Sofia !"
We enjoyed our stay at the Sofia very much. The location is wonderful, the staff very helpful and the room very clean AND quiet. We were refreshed after our time there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a great hotel which as a great restaurant attached. I would have stayed longer had I known how convenient it was to the entire downtown area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"reponsive to our needs"
The room we booked had a shower, no bathtub. My wife had back pain and wanted a hot bath. The Sophia put us in a suite with bath at no extra charge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute historic hotel"
This is a stylish hotel in a historic building near the Gaslamp district and Convention Center. Apparently the hotel water was turned off for an hour while I was gone during the day but this didn't Impact my stay. The January 2015 off season rate of $125 was a real bargain. I didn't dine at the downstairs restaurant; there's a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf […] next door. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Nice little hotel in downtown. Rooms are a bit small but clean and comfy. Recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute room, but wouldnt stay there again."
The showers had no door, which allowed water to splash all over the bathroom floor. Room overall was well kept. Mattress was worn down.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Sofia Hotel"
The Sofia Hotel was a great place to stay. A fairly easy walk to the convention center, gas lamp district, and other hotels. It has a nice gym including a yoga room. The complimentary bottles of water and coffee in the room were a nice change from most hotels' $4 water!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Hotel Gym"
I stay at the Sofia Hotel 5 to 6 times a year when I'm in town on business. It's a great hotel. The staff is extremely welcoming and nice. The Sofia has the best hotel gym in the area. (I've stayed in 3 or 4 other hotels near by). The rooms are on the small side, but are extremely comfortable and cozy. You get 2 free bottles of water, coffee, and Wifi […] in the rooms. The Wifi is spotty the higher up you go in the hotel. Overall, it's a great value and would highly recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Who could have asked for more!!!"
My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at this luxurious hotel. I only wish it had an indoor pool. The hotel is surrounded by everything you could possibly need and want, so there is no need for a rental. And to top everything off, this hotel gives you free bike rentals with your stay!

"Sofia hotel - I give it a Thumbs Up!"
hotel was nice and in perfect location to the Horton Mall, restaurants, several blocks from Gaslamp and the opposite way several blocks to waterfront! there were a lot of homeless people in and around the hotel but i never felt unsafe. the walls were a little thin and I was close to the elevator so I heard people coming down the hall all night. the […] staff was very pleasant and the concierge was very helpful! they also provide a FREE walking tour which was awesome as well as FREE yoga. plus the restaurant attached was AMAZING!!!

"Cute but NEEDS Free Parking"
The parking was VERY pricey either at a lot next door OR at the Hotel valet.The hotel room I was in was VERY dusty!!! The neighborhood was beautiful with lots of things to do! It is a very cute hotel but the rooms were SO small. Maybe good for one person comfortably. The staff was very helpful and smiled all the time! i love people that love their job! […] The amenities were scarce but I am glad they did include an iron. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful boutique hotel in DT San Diego"
Very nice boutique and historic hotel right in Downtown San Diego; the area can be a little sketchy at night (with homeless around) - but it's very close to the Horton Plaza shopping districtGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing Boutique Hotel/Surprising Luxury"
Fabulous boutique hôtel in downtown San Diego just steps from Horton Plaza as well as Gas Lamp. Rooms are compact but amazingly and thoughtfully designed to be both super functional as well as luxurious. Honestly, the luxury level is higher than some chain high end brands. Rates are often very low (depending on what's happening in downtown SD) and probably […] because it's a boutique (and not part of an awards program) ….. what a treasure!

"5 days in SD"
I stayed for 5 days. While the room is small, hey it's San Diego and you shouldn't be in your room much. Saw posts on elevator; while they're also small, didn't have a problem with them. Only reason I didn't give a "5" on Service and cleanliness is the maids forgot to clean my room on the last day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel in a great location just wish the rooms were bigger.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
