I'm reviewing the Sofia for the second time. I still recommend it highly. Rooms are on the small side but the hotel is attractive and the location is perfect. Walk to harbor/embarcadero, Seaport Village, Gaslamp Quarter, Horton Plaza, easy as pie. Catch bus to the world's best zoo, San Diego zoo, don't miss it even if you are not a zoo person! Again, easy as pie. Concierge very helpful in getting discount tickets, giving directions, recommending restaurants, whatever you need. Free WiFi in lobby is nice for me. Lobby a bit cold but I often find that in buildings so it may not bother you at all. Very good value and comfortable bed. If you want to eat in for a change, there is a microwave and fridge in the room. Again, the employees really stand out here.

"Excellent Hotel in Downtown San Diego - Recommended"

Boutique hotel situated in Downtown San Diego. Close to Horton Westfield, Gaslamp District and USS Midway. Close to restaurants and centrally located. Hotel has historic feel and if you don't like the chains this one is for you. Staff were friendly upon arrival and knowledge with no complaints. Service staff were great if you put the 'don't disturb sign on the door' they actually left you alone. Good gym and yoga room which was surprising for a small hotel. Coffee Bean at front of hotel. Hotel is clean and warm. Small lobby. Room was well presented and good for business or couples travelling. Windows let natural light in. Rooms serviced daily. Free Wi-fi - *thank you. The amount of hotels now that charge excess fees or you have to join a loyalty club gets frustrating. No complaints about this hotel. Good centrally located. Friendly.

"Amazing staff!"

My husband and I stayed here for a night towards the middle of August 2017. I was extremely pleased with the staff at this hotel. Everyone was really nice and helpful. We were able to check in early which worked out perfect. When we first opened the door to our room, we were shocked on how small the room was, but loved the modern décor and how cozy I felt. We noticed the light in our bathroom was very dim. We called front deck and within 3 minutes, a very nice man was there to fix it. I was impressed! The hotel is in a great location. You are walking distance to dozens of restaurants and entertainment. We went to the Zoo and bought tickets at the hotel ( I think we got a 10 or 15% discount). Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in Sep 2017 and no complaints. Check in was really easy and quick, the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was quite small but very comfortable, clean and the shower was a good size! The best thing about this room was the positions of the plug sockets, which for two girls sharing was amazing, right next to both mirrors so we could both get ready at the same time! Surprising rare in some hotels! Great location with everything in walking distance. Worth the money and would definitely return.

"Decent hotel but beware of flaws"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed September 08, 2017 NEW
Older hotel but in good shape. There are a few negatives however that will prevent me from returning . 1. Walls are thin. I can clearly hear my neighbors cough or talk. 2. Bathroom sink is shoehorned into a corner behind the tv stand / dresser and has no counter space. Its almost like being in an airplane lavatory. 3. Air conditioner is on a timer so that it shuts off during the night. It is impossible to sleep through the night. You have to wake up hot and miserable, get out of bed, and walk over to the thermostat so that it can detect you and start back up. This was not a malfunctioning system, this is how it is designed to work according to the hotel staff. All four of my colleagues staying here experienced the same thing and were told the same thing by the staff. Not only is it a fatal flaw, it is one that is easily fixed, the staff is aware of and yet it remains. That should be everything you need to know about the attitude and approach of the management here to choose somewhere else to stay.
