Although the building is older, the hotel has been beautifully updated. I had a smaller room but it was nicely appointed - super comfortable bed and a great shower. No breakfast. Great location if you want to be on the bus line to the airport. The staff were professional and friendly. I felt very safe here.

The Sofia hotel stay we had over President's Day Weekend was excellent. This nicely refurbished older building/hotel seems to be doing all that it can to be welcoming and as-upscale-as-possible... It is true that the rooms are not large (due to it being an older building), but they make up for it with friendly service and clean rooms. I liked that there were two bottles of wine in our room, for purchase if we wanted, twenty-two bucks a bottle (one red, one white), and that they have filtered water dispensers at which you can fill your water bottles back up. The room also had actual glasses (instead of paper/plastic ones). Parking (at the hotel in a big open lot behind the building) is forty bucks (Feb 2021), so we opted for cheaper by dropping our things off and driving to a further lot. Due to Covid, at the time of our visit, their restaurant and bar were not open, but everything (Gaslamp Area, Little Italy and Downtown) are all walking distance with plenty of choices of places to eat. The bed was comfortable, the room was very clean. The in-room coffee maker was an average type (meaning not very good coffee), but there is a café on the corner of the building where we bought better drip coffee (cappuccinos, etc offered there as well; it's a chain coffee place, but thankfully not Star-$s). I'd certainly stay here again if in the area and the price is right. Overall, we had a great stay.

Room Tip: It's an older building. All rooms will be small. Our faced the back; view was just OK.

Great location, great staff, great communication. Downtown was a little quiet due to the pandemic. But the hotel took good precautions to keep their guests safe. Our room was a little small. It’s an older hotel, with modern upgrades. But room walls slightly thin, not too bad, but sometimes could hear neighboring rooms. Overall good experience

This is our favorite place to stay in San Diego. We love the atmosphere and the friendly staff. A charming historic building close to the Gaslamp district and the train station. Being a lover of fossils and paleontology I also like the decor in the halls on each floor.

The hotel may not look that impressive from the outside, as they kept the original brownstone exterior from the1940's - which gives it character. The Sofia Hotel interior is like walking into a cocoon of comfort and elegance. If you appreciate art, you will enjoy the many and varied pieces of art and nature that are featured throughout the lobby and guest rooms. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Friendly and helpful staff :)
