Exceptional 10.0
The Sofia Hotel is a quaint hotel centrally located in beautiful San Diego. Every major attraction like the Midway, Gaslamp District and Little Italy, Balboa Park, etc... are easy to get to. The hotel is clean and although there was construction during our stay in the hotel itself; they tried to manage the situation.

Great location & the onsite restaurant The Currant made amazing Beignets, breakfasts & happy hour cocktails!! 7th floor was undergoing bathroom upgrades as we left. Our room had a rather uncomfortable bed & was a tad small But all in all experience was good.
