Great location but a few inconveniences

The room was very small, but it is the first time I have stayed in San Diego so maybe that is the standard size of rooms there. Hotel parking was $34 a night, so we had to park on the street, which was a hassle as the city does street cleaning 3 times a week (a bit excessive really!) and will fine drivers who are parked on certain sides of the road between 3-6am. We were charged a $10 a night "guest services fee" on top of the room charge, which I am assuming was for the "free" internet, newspaper and bottled water. On the plus side, the room was very clean, and we had a bar fridge and coffee maker. The hotel is in a great location near Horton Plaza and the Gaslamp Quarter. There are also fitness and yoga studios onsite and free yoga classes twice a week.

Sofia city view

Good bed, in-room wifi. Nothing much to look at from the city view room but glimpses into other rooms at the back seemed to show garden outlooks. The toilet bowl is tiny and about 14" off the floor in the shower room, which may be an issue for those with limited mobility. Shower stall only, no tub. Microwave, fridge and safe in room. A better bathroom would make it a great stay. Near First Ave, so a fair walk along Broadway to all the eateries and bars on 5th Ave. Helpful staff and bus to Seaworld runs right outside - No. 30 then No. 9. An easy stroll down to harbour exhibits or take a bus. Buy the $5 day pass for public transport right near the stop in the Transport Office nearby and have a $5 return trip to Seaworld.

overall good

Space is utilized in a very economic way- but feels you're crunched. I stayed during a conference, so did not spend much time n the room...overall is okay

room size

my major issue with this hotel is the room size. when you read reviews that say "small room", they mean tiny claustrophobic size. maybe good for single guest but for two people just far too small, especially when travelling with holiday size suitcases. no shower door an issue. bathroom floor gets soaked. most hotels now offer breakfast, even if off site but not this one.also building work that started at 6.15am, no apology from staff. couldn't recommend.

Average

The worst bit was the hidden costs of parking $30/day. It would have been good if it was mentioned. Room was very small. Maybe more suitable for business trips.
