Enjoyed every aspect of our visit.
Loved the balcony, and really lived the energy in the lively, eclectic community. Penny the watchdog is a sweetheart, and the café serves excellent Italian coffee.

I knew about this so no surprises, but it was impossible to find a parking on the street, so I had to use the hotel parking which is an extra 20 USD per day. Not cheap.
Location is great, in the heart of Little Italy. You can also walk (about 20-25 mins) to the Gaslamp quarter. Hotel is very clean.

Long walk to downtown but the trolley was a few blocks away, so it was very manageable. The room had a bit of an industrial feel, particularly the heavy gray metal door on the room and no closet, just a rack. Flaky wifi made work a challenge.
It was a good value, the bed was comfortable and there were a lot of restaurants nearby - it's in Little Italy so plenty of Italian choices. A great coffee shop in the same building for coffee, breakfast and work space.

Only spent a few hours here. Basically just overnight. So can't say I have real complaints.
Location!! Price! And stylish little boutique hotel!

Perfect value for the money. Excellent location next to trolley station, walking distance to the harbour, shopping, etc. Very friendly staff, modern room with everything what you need.

Would have been neat to have the complimentary pastry and coffee each morning. Super Italian Bistro just off of Lobby
Book no smaller than Queen room, everything compact but super clean, loved the rain shower, neat having sink out of bathroom - simply enjoyed everything about it.

Room was't ready upon arrival. Did not receive wake up call as requested.
Clean, minimalist, European feel. Friendly staff.

I didn't like the small rooms but the front desk was great on fulfilling our needs and getting us a bigger room. Thanks to the gentleman at the front desk during the morning...
Loved that it was right in the heart of San Diego. Within walking distance of all the great places to be. Will be back to this awesome hotel!

Parking was hard to find but it is downtown
I love the atmosphere of the hotel, the staff was nice & the rooms were clean. The view from my room on the third floor was great!

Parking is bad and there was no hotel parking available. Also a little noisy.
Modern look, great location, free wifi.

No need to rent a car. $12 taxi ride from the airport. Ballast Point Tasting Room is a must stop for beer lovers just 4 blocks down the street. Countless other restaurants within walking distance.

Lost work in the middle of the night while using the wifi because (I found out the next day) a system upgrade was performed.
The granite shower stall and other beautiful features of decor, Caffe Italia downstairs, the organic pizza shop also downstairs, the superb location

Would be good if it had laundry facilities.

As I entered the building from the street an unsuspecting young couple could easily be seen standing by the bed in their room, unaware that the shade could be seen through at night with their light on inside. I had called and asked for an upgrade and the hotel staff said they couldn't and they were booked. During my stay they didn't se booked at all! My room was very small and difficult to get around the bed when I opened the suitcase.
Walk to interesting shops, restaurants and bars nearby.

A perfect location in Little Italy at the corner of India and West Date, close to the MRT, and just a few blocks from the Waterfront. At your door are some wonderful breakfast and dining places, a different one for dining for each each of our six days' stay. The room might be a bit small, but all it lacks is a make-up mirror, and perhaps a mirror in the bathroom. We will recommend La Pensione to all Sydneians who are intending to visit San Diego.

Loud fan, somewhat small, coffee maker (would be nice) there was a shop nearby though.
Location, Pretty, Nice Views, Clean & close to major attractions
