"Elaina is awesome!"

Helaina is AWESOME! we had this trip booked for months and had a last minute family emergency, she spoke with a manager and allowed us to void the 3 day cancellation clause so we could sort out our matter. We ended up getting it sorted out and were able to make the trip largely thanks to her! And Mgr. John was great when our return flight was canceled and we had to stay an extra day, he set our whole group, (4) rooms, up with extensions and upgrades! Great customer service, we will definitely recommend and come back! Thank you!

"Acceptable, smallish rooms"

Sofia is a centrally located historic hotel. Service is good. Rooms are small but clean and functional. Television quality wasn’t very good. Heating did not work very well. I was annoyed by the $15 per day “Guest Services Fee” that was added to the bill. Hopefully this isn’t a new trend to hide charges in non-resort hotels.

"The Sofia Hotel perfect!! "

Stayed two nights with great service, great staff and absolutely no complaints! (Daniel was awesome help with check-in and advice) Great location, good access to everything in San Diego. Airport is a short uber ride and very recommended for most sightseeing (parking is very expensive and hard to find at times ) and if you’re daring there is many options to get around town..scooters, bikes and bike taxis

Well located historic hotel with cozy room and good restaurant and bar. The staff is very helpful and we enjoyed Pamela's tour of the Gaslamp district. We would stay here again because of the availability of good restaurants and access to the bus lines.

"Nice hotel - overpriced"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

We stayed at this hotel on our West Coast road trip during our honeymoon in July 2018. The hotel is stylish and nicely decorated. We got a bit confused finding the valet parking (ended up driving down a one way road!) but once found the staff were very friendly and they took our car away to the underground car park. Check in was simple and easy. The room was pleasant, I would say it was on the small side, quite cramped together but the bed was comfy and it was clean. I did think this hotel was quite expensive, we paid £200 for 1 night and I don't think it was justified considering the size of the room and valet parking was on top of this with no breakfast included. The location was average. It's around a 20-25 minute walk to the Gas Lamp district where all the main restaurants and bars are. If I came to San Diego again I would definitely stay somewhere a bit closer to the main areas.
