Upon arrival its easy to be impressed, the hotel is modern with historic charm. We were told we got a renovated room on a high floor. Wow, we were mislead. The room was quaint but at the far side of the building closest to existing construction site of a hotel that is currently in full swing and VERY loud and can be heard from the room in the morning. (No sleeping in) You are downtown so we did expect normal traffic, but construction right next door is quite a different tradeoff. The hotel staff should have done their best to place guests away from this noise, we were place literally with our window facing it - the high floor did not matter. We stayed during the week - this may or may not be a thing on the weekend. I have a sneaking suspicion our accommodations were less prioritized because we booked through a third-party travel site, as they made note of that at check-in and seemed to treat dirext bookees a little friendlier; again, just a note. We were moved twice after our first room's toilet was broken & phone disconnroom's. We had to pack up our things to go downstairs and retrieve new keys to then move right next door 30 minutes after checking in. Later that evening, after a long day I took a shower and got ready to have a late dinner and go out for the evening to plug in the blow dryer to find the second room's outlet didn't work in the bathroom. I called the Front Desk and was told we could move rooms again or we could wait for maintenance to come in at 8 AM in the next morning. We elected to move rooms as we didn't want someone to disrupt our schedule and we had plans for the evening still - we needed an outlet without having to leave a hot curling iron on the floor. So we moved rooms, by the time everything was done we were just frustrated. Management never called to check in with us or apologize for the inconvenience of their "renovated" rooms the next day or the entire stay aside from the survey. The location of the hotel is about a 15 mins walk to the Broadway Pier, 12 mins to the Santa Fe Depot Tram to take you to the Green Line, and then about 15 mins to Little Italy and 10 mins to Gaslamp. Location is alright, but with the construction headache, lack of customer service, and many other options there are in these areas, you may be better suited to grab a deal elsewhere.

the Sofia is a very charming and well maintained hotel. The staff is very friendly and responsive to needs or questions. I looked around and I found that it was very well priced. The Sofia is a few blocks away from so many restaurants. I like a bit of a walk. If you are lazy stay somewhere closer.

Perfect location to scout out SD. A short walk to Little Italy, Gas Lamp District and the waterfront. Downtown was a little COVID creepy. Kind of a ghost town and a growing homeless population but the still lively dining scene has moved into the streets where it should have always been with a climate like this. Sadly many restaurants, breweries, etc are closed or operating under tough conditions. You have to order a meal to accompany a drink so plan your dining. The reception help was 5 star! Thank you Helena and Mariana - Super Stars. Rooms are tight but cozy. Could use more towel/coat hooks.

Very bad experience. Small rooms. All the appliances were non functional. Had to contact front desk multiple times. The only sink was clogged & no one was there to fix it. I asked manager to contact me but on one did.
