Great weekend getaway

This is a cute hotel in a really great location. Our room was small, but didn't feel cramped, and was very clean & comfortable. The location was excellent- right in the heart of Little Italy, and pretty close (20 min walk) to the gaslamp district. Front desk staff was friendly & attentive, making checking in/out a breeze. My only complaints are that #1, there's no coffee maker in the room (not that big of a deal), & #2, parking was a small nightmare. The hotel lot was completely full, so we had to drive around (for at least 1/2 hr) trying to find a parking place. We did eventually find a valet lot a block or 2 away (a pain lugging our bags back) that let us park over night for $25. All in all, we had a great time, and the pros far outweigh the cons here.

beware

I only call name my review beware for one reason the overnight watch lady was very very mean, and wasn't a good hostess at all. She was snappy and looked like she was under the influence. She made me very uncomfortable and I left earlier than I was going to because of her.

The Little Italy area is great. Good dinning, bars and coffee spots. Parking sucks, but it is to be expected.

Great little Italy location, tiny room.

Love this Little Italy location in the heart of the area. Extremely small rooms, (euro-small) but renovated rooms. No coffee maker, no full length mirror. Tiny garage parking for tiny cars. Great service. Restuarant connected. $15 for parking-2014/15. I would get 4th floor facing north looking over Little Italy for a cool view. Price was great for downtown location. Not a good place if you have a kid staying with you in the room not a lot of room to move. For a date night, or bussiness would be suitable.

Mediocre at best

The room was tiny and dirty. It looked like no one had vacuumed it since the last guest.

Weekend Getaway

I stayed at the La Pensione with my boyfriend (this was his first visit to San Diego). As a native, I have to say this hotel was in the perfect location. It's 2 blocks down from the bay in Little Italy and about a 15 minute walk down to the Gaslamp Quarter. Plus, there are so many cute shops and small delicious eateries that I've never been too. The only downside is that the rooms were a little small but, we only stayed for a night and for the price we paid, I'd say it was worth it. The staff was extremely friendly too

Loved it here!

I enjoyed my stay here! Beautiful decorations, friendly staff and good location. The rooms are on the smaller side so it might not work as well for some families, but I found it to be the perfect size for my boyfriend and I. A lovely place, for a lovely price!

Just okay.

The location was great because it is close to many yummy restaurants and bars. However, the room we had was so tiny it was actually difficult to find a place to put your suitcase and still be able to move about the room. The carpet was black in color and had NOT been vacuumed after the last guest so it was dirty which made me wonder what else had not been cleaned since the last guest. And the worst thing about this room was the fact that there were NO shades or blinds on the windows. The only thing they had was a mesh shade like the sails people put in their yards to block some of the sun. So when I turned off the lights to go to sleep the room was lit up with the lights in the courtyard and I could see into other people's rooms and they could clearly see into mine. That is beyond NOT ok!

Gaslamp District is only a couple of miles away if you want something to do after dinner. There are many bars, restaurants, live music and theaters to choose from.
