No sound-proofing and on a very busy street and planes flying over every morning...
Read carefully before committing
The Hotel Vyvant is a charming little boutique hotel very near to Little Italy. My stay was one night only. The young women at the desk when I arrived was friendly, welcoming, and professional. There was a bit of highway noise but I am reasonably sound sleeper and I have no problems with it.
Even though I'm pretty attentive to detail I somehow managed to miss that I would have a shared bathroom. The room rate of $105 was a good bargain with a bathroom, but without I would not have paid $60 for my room. I am not a "hotel person" and have few requirements, but a bathroom is one of them. My other gripe is that I was there for a business meeting and needed to be on my way before the complimentary breakfast was served starting at 8am That is simply too late for many guests. So for $105 I got a very small bedroom with a small TV and a sitting chair. There was no desk to work, and a shared bathroom and no breakfast.
Friendly staff, nicely appointed space, comfortable rooms, welcoming patio area to enjoy the weather, amazing location in Little Italy and close to Balboa park. Small neighborhood park two blocks away where my daughter played soccer everyday.
Hotel staff was friendly.
Hotel room was not at all near to the pictures shown on website.
Loved the spa and small hotel feel
No breakfast during the week
great location, but quite noisy at night. a lot of
close to little italy and waterfront
super noisy from highway and air planes very frequently
This place sucks!
I don't recommend this hotel to anyone.
Decent and convenient location
The room is nice and clean, decent view.
There were no towels in my room or the shared bathroom. Front desk has certain operating hours so no one to help. I had to leave for business right when front desk came in for the day. Drying with old clothes was no bueno.
Ok first we arrived at the hotel and parked right in front no problem. We went to check in and we're greater by a beautiful very friendly dark haired gal who checked us in and gave us instructions. She then escorted us to our room ! Showed us how the AC works and told us about breakfast. Our room was SO cute!! Actually this whole hotel was very cute I loved the vibe and decor. Everything was so so clean to! We had to share a bathroom which was no problem at all. One of the things I really loved about this place was that it did not feel like a hotel at all, in fact it felt like I was staying at a friends house or a bandb. It was excellant. I was already happy and then then next morning when my husband went to get breakfast and bring it back into the room I was SO impressed with it! Delicious orange juice, chobani yogurt and macadamia nut granola, assorted pastries and my favorite banana bread! I have never had a breakfast that delicious and fresh! Overall, location, staff, cleanliness, and vibe get a total 10 stars in my book!! ThE people were ALL so friendly! I would recommend this to anyone and everyone !
Sweetest Staff Ever
The staff at Hotel Vyvant were fantastic! They gave wonderful recommendations and were very accomodating. The hotel itself is very cute, clean and quaint. There are flatscreen teleisions in the room along with very nice (and new!) bathrobes. The location is within walking distance of Little Italy. There are some wonderful resturaunts there and a FABULOUS and fun wine bar (M Winehouse) that I highly recommend as well.
The staff is really friendly. The room was small, especially if you have a lot of luggage, but certainly manageable. Good value for the price. Like being in the Little Italy section of San Diego.
My room was facing Grape Street which is unfortunately very, very LOUD. Even through the double paned windows. I'm not sure there's a cheap solution. I didn't ask for earplugs at the desk, but maybe for the louder rooms, a pair or two could be situated in the bathroom.
My husband and I loved the Old World feel and how very friendly the staff is! We felt very welcomed and the breakfast was fantastic! We especially like how clean Hotel Vyvant is... This is not overlooked like it is at other hotels we've stayed at. Thanks to John and his staff, our stay in San Diego was super comfortable. This is one boutique hotel that knows how to treat people! We will definitely be back.
We had to leave :(
With a stay at Found Hotel San Diego in San Diego (Little Italy), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of San Diego City College and Maritime Museum of San Diego. The front desk is staffed during limited hours.
