  • Excellent for business and pleasure

    by Chicken1201 on 2017-12-14 08:56 am

    I stayed 8 nights here recently half for work and half for a small vacation. The location and room were perfect for both purposes! I liked how walkable the area was and that my room was comfortable at the end of a long day of exploring. I did not miss not having a pool since this time of year it was not warm enough to be interested in one.

  • Great Hotel for Location and Service

    We stayed at the historic Sofia Hotel for 8 nights in December 2017. We read so many great reviews for the hotel and the price was very compatible for the size of room in San Diego. Upon our arrival, we were very impressed with the professionalism of the staff. On check-in and throughout our stay, the front desk staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

    We also found the front desk staff very responsive to any issues in our room. A light bulb burned out over our coffee making station and we called down to the front desk. Jesus, the building maintenance person, came to our room with a bulb and it was replaced right away. The entire process was under 10 minutes from when we placed the call to the front desk. We had another issue (shower not draining quickly) a few days later which was repaired within 5 minutes of placing a call to the front desk.

    The location of the hotel is very central being on Broadway Street. We took a city bus #992 ($2.25) from the airport which stopped in front of the hotel. The ride was approximately 10 minutes.

    The hotel has a lot of perks for their guests that are complimentary (ie. free):
    - coaster bikes, helmets and locks that you can borrow for 3 hrs
    - 1 hour walking tours of the city every Saturday and Sunday mornings. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the experience a lot of fun!
    - daily yoga classes

    We had a queen room which came with an empty bar fridge with freezer as well as a microwave. (There are grocery stores about a 5 minute walk away). The hotel also gives you 2 bottles of water/day and free local and 1-800 calls. There is a coffee maker in the room and coffee is replenished daily.

    The beds are comfortable and with great pillows. One of us has back issues and we were very pleased with the bed during our 8 night stay. Great shower pressure and water temperature.

    Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel based on the great/friendly service, amenities and cleanliness. It was a great value and a true gem.

  • Amazing Hotel Close to Gaslamp District

    I was in town for 5 days for a bridge tournament. The Sofia Hotel was a perfect respite - extremely welcoming staff and a quiet and tranquil atmosphere. The room and hotel were very clean and comfortable, and the king sized bed was incredible. The housekeeping staff was wonderful and kept the room well stocked with nice lotion and other toiletries. There are so many great restaurants in San Diego that I wasn't sure I'd try the attached restaurant Currant, but one night we were too tired to go out and ordered from the restaurant to go. The food was surprisingly good (burger and croque monsieur), and I think I should have tried them for breakfast also! Overall, if you are looking for a relaxing and comfortable hotel in San Diego you can't go wrong with The Sofia Hotel. I will return!

  • Great hotel and location.

    Small, quaint but with excellent service. Centrally located and convenient to downtown attractions. Independently owned bar in the hotel was convenient in the afternoon. Gas Lamp District nearby. Only a short walk to the train station and the waterfront.
