Great location, lumpy pillows...Posted Jul 26, 2015
Liked the hotel history, crushingly small room. Are the pillows original to the hotel? Staff was friendly, the spa was quaint and the massage therapist were great. Currant had a good brunch as well.

Great hotel for conference attendees!Posted Jul 25, 2015
Pros: Very reasonable rates. Nice restaurant/bar in lobby with a great happy hour. Two free bottles of water for each day you stay.
Location: Located north of the Gaslamp District but is within walking distance of pretty much EVERYTHING.
I've stayed at the Sofia hotel a few times for events at the Convention Center. The rooms are compact, but you don't really need more space when you're travelling alone. The Convention Center is a short 15 min walk away and there are a ton of restaurants and bars nearby.

Great location and charming character hotel!Posted Jul 19, 2015
Pros: The location & affordability along with the check-in process being very speedy!
Stayed at Sofia Hotel for one night while in SD for a concert. I'll definitely stay there again! The rooms were very affordable and the staff was awesome! The only con was the tight squeeze in the room if you have more than 1 other person staying with you.

Cute hotel, centralized locationPosted Jul 13, 2015
Cons: Add room service
Location: This was centrally located to the gas lamp district which has a ton of bars and food places. Also walking distance to the convention center.
I booked this hotel last minute for Comic Con. I have to say we were pleasantly surprised! We drove in Saturday to be greeted immediately by valet and they checked us in early (check in 4pm) with no additional charge. Great staff!! The room was small, but expected (we only booked a single queen). They did provide free WiFi and water bottles which was a nice touch. The restaurant that was attached did close early for dinner (around 9pm) but had a delicious breakfast menu. It was only a few minute walk to the convention center and surrounding events. Also close to a Ralph's if you are looking to purchase groceries for a long term stay.

Decent hotel in central downtown area.Posted Jul 13, 2015
Pros: I liked the history and the older style of the hotel.
Cons: Bed/Room had not been cleaned properly. Found several hairs on the pillows.
Location: Location is convenient but is in an area with many homeless/transient people on the streets.
Hotel was OK, staff good, but no breakfast available before 7.00 A.M. and the cleanliness of the room was poor.

Sofia Hotel during ComiconPosted Jul 10, 2015
This is a really nice boutique hotel. The staff and physical appearance of the place are terrific. My only complaint was the size of my particular room. It was during a huge convention week (Comicon), though I wasn't there for the convention - was there for business - so I understood the enormous demand on rooms and was grateful to find a room at all. However, this was an incredibly small room! I felt like I needed to go out in the hallway to change my mind! Room size aside, it was a delightful hotel.

Great locationPosted Jul 9, 2015
Fantastic location for people who want to go out in the Gaslamp. The front desk was super helpful in suggesting where to eat/drink as well. My one complaint would be that there was no pool, and we would have loved to enjoy the beautiful weather poolside.
