Great location to Gaslamp (walkable) and La Jolla (ride shareable). Clean quiet rooms. Perfect for a getaway weekend. Nice restaurant and friendly staff. This was my second time to stay at the Sofia and I would certainly do it again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Sofia Hotel. This hotel was centrally located to all the attractions and it was very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful and there was a great coffee shop right beside for us to grab a coffee and a snack. We were within walking distance to the USS Midway and the Gaslamp District. And we loved the flavoured water in the lobby. The valet service was very prompt and we enjoyed that our room overlooked the city and all it's beauty. The only downside to this hotel is the rooms were smaller, but they had all the amenities. We would definitely come back!
