  • 8.0.Very Good

    The property was clean and maintained well. The Ac was a bit noisy as it was a wall unit, and, Not sure if we were informed that this property did not have an elevator and it was a bit difficult for us to lug our luggage upstairs but we managed. I will recommend this property to my friends.

    Our only complaint was no A/C in the living area. It was listed as having A/C donut should have had it in more than just the bedrooms.

    3 Day stay in SD

    the property was really nice, clean, and quiet which was a plus. concern there was no onsite parking even though its stated one can be requested which is miss leading. Going to assume they’re saying you can pay for it which doesn’t seem correct. There is no main entrance or lobby, everything is handled electronically via entry codes and entering thru buzzed gates. Overall good stay.

  • 6.0.Good

    Not so superb

    I can see how many travelers can find staying at Sonder appartments apealing. Cleanliness is important to me especially considering the whole country is concentrated with Covid-19. Our room was nice however our fitted sheet was stained and bathrooms curtain has not been changed in a while, it had discoloration and mold on the bottom (see attached pic). Perhaps this is due to lazy cleaning lady, however someone should be making sure this is not an ongoing issue. Also we stayed two nights and receive only one night worth of towels, second night we had to reuse our towels from the night before. I was dissapointed with this property especially because of its displayed superb rating.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Great location in Little Italy. A little hard to find (it is set back from the street) felt Like a very safe area and there is a secured gate to access to walk back to the property. Very modern and well decorated albeit a small studio. Perfect for only 1 or 2 guests. Has all the basics and some special touch amenities. (Laundry detergent, soaps and toiletries). Very clean. Convenient location. Easy walk to the heart of little Italy. Can be on the I 5 in just a few minutes. There is a 7 eleven on the corner that is less than a minute walk. My only complaint would be the parking situation. The immediate parking on State street adjacent to the property is very limited. Most allows 10-30 minutes only. It’s perfect for unloading but you can’t stay there. Just around the corner there is a paid parking lot that charges by the hour or $10 per 24 hours but with no in and out privileges. You can find unmetered free parking but it’s really luck getting a space but worth a try. Would definitely recommend this property!

    Good location in the Little Italy district. The only disappointment was that the room was not very clean.

    Very good location. Unit is very dark even during the day especially the bedrooms. Heating and cooling set up is annoying and hard to control. Left it at off............
