"Loved This Hotel - HIGHLY RECOMMEND"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Our experience started with Alex checking us in and was just THE MOST polite hotel check in ever. He was thorough and soft spoken which was valuable seeing as we were getting in late and after a long plane ride. The pillows and mattress were the most comfortable that we've ever experienced. It was attached to a great restaurant THE CURRANT though you cannot bill to the room. We had a noisy neighbor for the evening of Halloween weekend and the hotel swiftly resolved the issue with absolutely no drama. The location is great too. it's within walking distance to GASLAMP district. We loved this hotel!!

Loved this hotel! The service and the room were excellent! It had a classy, old school feel to it. Not the typical, same ole chain experience. It can be a bit expensive, depending on the time of year. Check out for better rates.

Stayed at Sofia prior to our leaving on a cruise. Great location close to airport and cruise terminal. Friendly staff and reasonable price for San Diego. We had a suite with sitting area and separate bedroom. We were traveling with family and some only got a regular room for same price so need to ask for the suite when booking checking price. Room was nice and bed was comfy. Free WiFi and bar that has a happy hour. Would highly recommend this hotel and would book again.

Beautiful hotel in an old building so room are a little smaller than we are used to. Great service but Check your prices we wound up paying a bit more than I expected. We went through Expedia and it seems that many of the hotels like this do not like that.

The room 154 we had is so tiny you could shake a stick and it would hit the sides. I'd ring reception and complain but the phone was plugged into itself and didn't work. There was no tv remote, and while I was unhappy I couldn't ring reception - let's just say the room look clean for a prison cell - enough said.
