Exceptional 10.0
Very comfortable and personal. This was our second time staying in this hotel and it was just as good as the first time

Exceptional 10.0
Comfortable apartment & convenient location
I was in San Diego to attend a conference at the San Diego convention center. The location of this apartment was very convenient — only a 10 minute walk to the convention center. There was quite a bit of street noise that made it into the living room, especially on Friday and Saturday nights, but the bedroom was always quiet. I appreciate having a kitchen and a washer/dryer when in town for a work trip. This apartment was overall very comfortable. I would definitely stay there again.

Sonder in the Gas Lamp
Upon arrival, there was a mix up in the size of room I secured. I left a voicemail and Matt quickly returned my call and rectified the situation (on a Friday night no less). He was very professional, responsive and helpful. I enjoyed my time in the correct unit. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. Common areas are a bit dated and could use some TLC, but location, staff and interior of units were excellent.

Good 6.0
Good room, but no sound blocking from street noise
The room was nice, clean, spacious as shown on pictures. Building is residential and there is no front reception, code entering doors. The elevator is outdated, slow, scary, and loud. BE MINDFUL that at night, the room gets all noises from the street directly, without any sound blocking. If you are light sleeper, please reconsider.

Very good 8.0
The property was very nice and was in a great walkable location for dinner and late nights. The area was noisy late into the night, but that's not a bad thing if you want to stay out late.

Downtown San Diego
The Sonder is conveniently located in downtown San Diego. We stayed in a large studio with a full kitchen. The mattress was very comfortable. Parking is a problem in the area.
Susan, us3 night trip
Fair 4.0
It’s a nice room but not worth the amount paid
Wanted to check my bags to go to my meeting... since the room wasn’t ready ...
