The Sophia hotel is a beautiful, boutique hotel that although very small, has modern, well attended rooms. The bed was fantastic and there was space for a desk, and chair, and regular chair. A small bar was convenient with a small refrigerator and microwave. The TV was mounted on the wall which was a good idea. The space is fine...

Staff are amazing. except for the housekeeper that ignored the DND on our door and came in while we were still sleeping. Beds so comfortable. Staff amazing. Great location. Rooms are nice sized. The restaurant has some unique items which are fun

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us as we welcome feedback to assist in improving The Sofia Hotel. It was great to read that you enjoyed the comfort of our custom bedding and we recently installed 42" flat screen televisions (and wall-mounted the same).

Near Horton Plaza, Gaslamp and public transportation makes this a good location for a downtown experience. The first room I was assigned was on the 5th floor when jack-hammering was occurring under the hotel. When I asked for a room away from the noise I was told there were no two bed rooms on the other side of the hotel....

This was quite possibly the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in. The exterior of the hotel was absolutely gorgeous and in an excellent location, close walking distance to everything. The room itself was very clean and trying to be stylish, but was still a bit dated in some of its decor. The room was incredibly small, and had...

Look no further, if travel brings you to downtown San Diego then your loding experience must be at The Sofia Hotel on Broadway near the Gas Lamp Quarter. The Front Desk personnel are professional and most helpful. My room was smaller than other hotels, but spotless, roomy enough to workout and more than adequate for a short stay. It was...

My husband and I just returned from a vacation to San Diego where we stayed at the Sofia for 4 nights. Upon checking in, the staff was ok but not overly friendly or welcoming. Our room was on the 7th floor, but like others have said the view is just of a brick wall and other windows. Wish I would...

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Sofia. The service was great and the rooms were clean. The Hotel is close to everything. The Gaslamp Quarter, harbor and PetCo. Park. Aside from the construction at 9am on the day of checkout everything was great. We would definitely go back
