    • Group of friends

      The qualitity is good. The rooms are very very small for a couple. No place to open the luggage.

      • Average rating

      The best thing about the La Pensione Hotel is the location. The hotel is situated in the heart of Little Italy and is surrounded by numerous cafes and restaurants. If you want to go to downtown it only takes 15 mins by foot or a short cab ride costs $6.00. The hotel itself is basic and the room that we had was modern but small. The hotel staff were very friendly and dealt with all requests in a prompt friendly manner. Overall the hotel was good, in a great location and reasonably priced.

      Staff was very helpful. Location is excellent, very central and therefore can be noisy. Rate is very reasonable for quality.

      There were some cobwebs in the room. Tv was old, but this is not a priority for me.

      Great value. We loved the location. The room was clean and spacious enough.

      Our room was located above the cafe, so it was loud at night and smelled like grease.

      Perfect for a visit to Little Italy before catching a plane the next morning

      Very basic room, very small parking structure with very small places

      Room was modern, contemporary, clean and lovely. Location wonderful - right in Little Italy. Staff was superb - knowledgeable and friendly.

      Parking was tough on Saturday because the hotel street was closed for a local art festival.

      Great location. 10min walk from the Amtrak train station, lively neighbourhood with a lot of restaurants and bars. Especially in the evening great place to be! Close to downtown San Diego, and close to the trolley as well, so you can discover other parts of San Diego easily. Reasonable price for what you get.

      Nothing. The fact that no dinner or breakfast is served is largely compensated by the numerous bars, bistrots and restaurants around the hotel, the location is excellent. There was some noise from a jazzband playing close to my hotel room until 11pm, but I actually liked this. If you don't want to experience this make sure to ask to the front desk, they must have plenty of rooms on the 'silent' side as well.

      The hotel is a gem - great location, can walk to train station or trolley and right next to Little Italy. It does have parking - cramped but only ten dollars a day. Rooms are not huge but clean and very functional. Staff friendly and helpful. Really perfect if you don't want to spend money on some anonymous luxury hotel or want something unlike the holiday inn stereotype. Great1

      Web in room too slow so have to go downstairs and connect with a cable there.

      Handy for bars, restaurants and the airport. Would not want to stay more than 1 night as room was very small.

      Wonderful renovations job. Pleasing lobby and great location, Good restaurant attached to the hotel. Enjoyed WiFi service. In the centre of all the action but still part of a local neighborhood while being able to walk to all the main attractions downtown.

      We were in a room not yet renovated so a little dated in decor.
