Neat Hotel that takes you back in time”

We stayed at the Sophia for two nights while waiting for our daughter to get back from a deployment in the Navy. Because of Covid, the bar / restaurant was closed so we could not utilize that amenity. It is an old building so you feel a bit like being transported back into the 40's or 50's. But since we like that era, we considered that to be a positive. And while we were on the 4th floor and it had an elevator, we sometimes used the staircase just because it seemed like the thing to do. The staff was great and the room was really nice even if a little smaller than what today's hotels offer. Again - it was part of the back in time ambiance. The only negative, and I knew this when making the reservation, is that they have an "add on resort fee" for things like the internet and such. Personally, I'd prefer they just role those costs into the base rate and be up front about the cost, but that is a personal preference. They are still a fairly inexpensive option compared to the cookie cutter chain hotels. I just think add on fees cause more ill will than they are worth. Final comment - great location for walking to the Gaslight District OR the Little Italy District. And if you don't like to walk, Uber is cheap to either area.

Great boutique hotel”

Was able to catch a great deal on this hotel near the heart of downtown San Diego/Gas lamp quarter compared to nearby hotels outside the area. Proximity to Amtrak station, stores, restaurants was excellent. Also the area felt where hotel located felt safe and fairly quite as it's on the edge of gaslamp where many of the tourist and party goers attend. Rooms was a bit small if 2 people staying in same room, but didn't need much space as was only myself occupying room since traveling for business. And didn't hear any noise through walls or in hall ways, although to be fair i was in a corner room and also not sure if anyone was in room next to me. That being said I recommend paying a few dollars extra if needed to obtain a corner room both for calmness and view. Overall great spot, highly recommend.

This was a wonderful little boutique hotel. The rooms were nice and clean. Just a heads up that the rooms are very small though, so if you need something a little bit more spacious, look elsewhere. Otherwise, this was a great hotel in a very nice location.

charming euro-style boutique”

a cozy boutique hotel on the border of downtown SD & the gaslamp district. a 20 minute walk from petco park, i enjoyed my stay on a weekday night before & after a ballgame. the room was quaint, with subtle hints of luxury. lavender potpourri on the bed was a nice touch. the sink outside the bathroom reminded me of my time spent in europe. a bed, a chair, and little else was all i needed and nothing i didn’t.

Got a good rate compared to other hotels in the area. Loved the building and the decor. Staff was nice and helpful. Rooms are pretty small, but that’s to be expected in a historic hotel. Only real issue was the AC on the top floors wasn’t super effective - a little bit stuffy in the room and worse in the halls.
