Great location as you can walk to most everything withing the area! Coffee bean is just 1 foot away from the hotel and opens very early. The hotel is very quite and accommodating. You get a comforting feeling when your in the room as it gives you a nostalgic experience. If you like elegance and simplicity, this is the place!!

The Sofia is a real hidden gem in SanDiego. It is a boutique hotel that has small room and a small bathroom, but unlike some other hotels in historic buildings, this one is totally modern and up to date and immaculate. Best of all the price for a room is very reasonable, as a true alternative to higher priced standard hotels. The Sofia has an attached restaurant and bar for round out the experience. It is also located near the Gaslight district. Overall, I highly recommend this wonderful gem to anyone wish to stay at a great place for a reasonable price.

A stylish hotel ideally situated for city centre attractions and shopping. Also well placed for the Gaslamp District and the waterfront. The hotel provides clean, comfortable rooms, a fitness centre, bar and restaurant. The bar and restaurant menus offer a good selection of dishes both for breakfast and for dinner. Valet parking at the hotel is quite expensive, even for downtown.
