Editorial Review of
La Pensione Hotel
While Downtown offers the ultimate proximity for tourists and business travelers, Little Italy’s lovely La Pensione Hotel is set away from the traffic and chaos; yet it is still in walking distance from the city center. Reminiscent of an Italian bed-and-breakfast, the hotel is unlike anything in greater San Diego. There’s even a resident dog in the lobby who serves as official greeter.
Seventy-five rooms surround a pleasant courtyard filled with amiable guests and salt air rolling off the nearby bay. Two restaurants are on-site, and countless more are within a block or two. When you’re sick of impersonal big-chain service, La Pensione is the best place to book a room and enjoy the most friendly, personalized, old-world service west of the Mediterranean.
