Verified Reviews of The Sofia Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Preoccupied."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Tall white guy seemed preoccupied. No eye contact.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
08-Mar-2020 Verified Review, stayed from Sun Mar 08 to Mon Mar 09 2020 at a $121.48 average nightly rate.
"Cute boutique hotel with character and charm."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
This older but updated boutique hotel's staff are first rate. We had a couple issues that were fixed immediately. The lobby and hallways were meticulously clean. The free water in the rooms with the refill stations were much appreciated. The flavored water and dog treats by the check in counter are an added bonus. I loved the large fluffy bath towels. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

"San Diego Wedding."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Everyone at the Sofia Hotel was very accommodating, especially Helena. She provided great and helpful insight during our stay.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
26-Nov-2018 Verified Review, stayed from Wed Nov 07 to Sat Nov 10 2018 at a $137.42 average nightly rate.
"Everything I want in a hotel"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The Sofia Hotel is a great value. The location, amenities and services are comparable or superior to those of larger chain hotels (e.g., Hyatt) at a significantly lesser nightly rate. Sort of a blend between a B and B and a more conventional hotel. The connected restaurant (Currant) is outstanding!
