8.5 Great
Pros:Great location in Little Italy, easy to walk to any “to go” place in San Diego. They offer parking (at $30 p/night) which can be handy in this area as parking can be hard to find.
Cons:Room cleaning could have been better. Also be aware that due to the hotel location you will get a lot of noise from the outside during the weekend, Little Italy at night is party central.
8.0 Great
Pros:Perfect Location. Clean. Friendly service
Cons:No hot water in the morning one day but they fixed it by the afternon
8.0 Great
Pros:Location, location, location! Situated in the heart of Little Italy, easy walk to many restaurants and sights. 10 minute walk to downtown.
Cons:Small room. Housekeeping was still cleaning my room when I checked in and reception gave me my room card.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:The location was great! Everything in Little Italy was walkable. Wanna go further? The trolley transit system was about two blocks away. Also, they have an underground garage structure available at $20 per night. The garage was fully protected so there's no worry about your vehicle.
Cons:My 8 month old son decided to poop in our bed around midnight while I was trying to change his diaper (dark lighting and half asleep). We stripped the sheets off, and then found out that the hotel didn't have any spare bedsheets because laundry didn't come back from the cleaner until Tuesday... It was Monday night. So, don't change diapers in the bed at midnight...?
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Location is right in little Italy.
9.4 Excellent
Pros:The staff were very friendly and helpful. I enjoy the morning coffee and pastry. Lovely modern rooms.
Cons:It was nice to have parking at the hotel but it was fairly expensive. The gym was also nice to have but very small no more than three people could use it at a time.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:The room was small, but overall the hotel was fantastic. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and the free pastry/coffee in the adjacent café was a nice treat.
8.5 Great
Pros:Charming hotel in the heart of Little Italy. Location is perfect for those wanting to explore the city and be close to Gaslamp. The staff was nice and the hotel had a lot of charm. Really clean as well! Would definitely stay again (but maybe would request a room with double beds just to give us a little extra space...)
Cons:Rooms are really small. Parking wasn't available our first night which I wasn't expecting. Once we did get a spot in the lot, all the spaces were really tight/hard to park in.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Well decorated. Good furniture and fixtures. Cool design
Cons:Pricey for what it is
8.3 Great
Pros:The staff was accommodating and very friendly. The location was perfect in Little Italy and walking distance to many downtown San Diego attractions. The rooms were nicely updated and the balcony overlooking the city was amazing.
Cons:The beds were a little hard for my taste. The room was hot and we were unable to control the air conditioning. We had to pay an extra $100 for a double queen. And it's $15 a day for parking which isn't stated at time of booking either
