La Pensione Hotel, San Diego
Great Hotel and Location
This is a fantastic small hotel in Little Italy. The rooms are small but very nice. You walk out the front and are surrounded by a great atmosphere. There are plenty of restaurants and desert shops for any taste. There is a tram stop nearby in case you want to make a long distance journey. With bike share rentals located at every corner you can be in gaslamp district in 25min. The hotel offers underground parking for guests with is great.

Great hotel in downtown!
If checking in on a Saturday be aware of Farmers Market that blocks street in front of hotel. Room was a little small but very clean and modern. Perfect for my needs for the weekend.

Wish they had a makeup mirror and air in room was not great. Room very small, but Can’t beat location.

I did not enjoy this hotel. It is a great area but this hotel doesn't hold up. The bed was uncomfortable, the air conditioner would not stay at the temp I set, if there were ammenities the staff (which was less than welcoming) didn't tell me about them. Parking is difficult. I called to find out where I should park because the parking garage is not readily apparent. The woman who answered asked me what kind of car I was driving. I told here I was driving a Mustang. She said "Normally they don't allow cars like that as they are "'too large" but I we don't that many guests today, so I guess its fine." I found this to be unacceptable as when i entered the garage there were several cars larger than mine.. I found it doubly unacceptable when I returned after being out and there was full size pick up truck. I won't be staying here again. There are too many other options at better prices with friendlier staff and rooms that are more modern.

Horrible mattress!!
I really debated on how to rate this hotel. It was a great boutique hotel in the heart of Little Italy. It is walking distance to the harbor, Seaport Village, and many restaurants. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. They offer a daily voucher for coffee and pastry from cafe in hotel which was nice. Yes the room was rather small but that what you get with this type hotel so that was fine, however the beds were the most uncomfortable I have slept on in quite a while. We were very pleased with everything at the hotel except the bed. But since that the main reason to book a hotel is to sleep I guess I would have to say I would not book again. Having read other reviews I should have expected this.
