      The toilets are so small that I have to hold my private parts or they go in the water. Pretty disgusting. They need to upgrade the toilets

      The staff was amazing and friendly. Unfortunately, the rooms aren’t that great. Would definitely go to a different hotel next time.

    • 2.0.Poor

      Very disappointed

      Hotels.com advertised that the hotel has valet parking, restaurant, bar …. It is not true. There was no bar, no restaurant and no valet parking. For the price we paid it is not worth it and the room was super small you couldn’t access the window to close the curtain. A total waste of money and false advertising.

      Terrific staff

      Staff was terrific! Super nice. I had a great time chatting with them. The room walls were not sound proof, which was a downer.

      Nice

      The Sofia was very convenient for going out in the Gaslamp area. It was clean and has a beautiful lobby. The rooms were small abs the bed was harder than I like, but overall a nice place. I felt safe. Cars are parked in a nearby lot for $40 per day.

      The air conditioning system in the room was terrible. The room was uncomfortably hot the entire time. Also, I requested maid service and it never happened. The staff was pleasant, however.

      Sophia-SanDiego

      I checked in Thursday nite. Lobby was packed. Young people In their 20's/30's. No one was masked. Check in person said as long as they're vaccinated it's ok. My reply- how do you know they're vaccinated. No reply. Dust was over everything. They charged me a $50 incidental fee for drinking water, cable tv, fitness rooms. Etc. Services that weren't even available, or I didn't use. I had to agree to when I checked in. When I was leaving o had a car & wanted to park into the lotfor 2 hours they wanted me to pay ,$40. I ended up finding a place in front of the hotel for 2 hours at a cost of $2.50. I'll be sure not to stay here again. Already overpriced for a tiny room, and no perks.

      Wonderful experience!

      The Sofia was everything we could have hoped for and more! It was beautiful with a fascinating history, unique, well appointed, excellent friendly service, clean, centrally located, and overall wonderful! I especially loved the creative and innovative way the hotel was modernized in the room while keeping the integrity of the original building. It was walking distance to the Gas Light district, PetCo park, the convention center and the wharf. Literally, couldn’t have been better!
