mini kitchens, split level floor plans,and huge

windows. More like artist’s studios or cruiser

cabins than traditional hotel rooms. It's a

smart, comfortable, and architecturally

interesting choice for your short or long term

San Diego stay.    


Experiencing Abpópa 

Аврóра Hillcrest is at the cultural and geographical heart of San Diego, surrounded by must-see attractions, eateries, events, and natural splendor in every direction. If you want to immerse yourself and experience urban San Diego, staying at Аврóра Hillcrest offers convenient access to pretty much everything, and situates you in the hub of the city.

Аврóра Hillcrest is named in honor of the famed Russian cruiser launched in 1900, and currently preserved as a museum ship in St. Petersburg.  Not only because we think she is the best looking battleship ever, but also because the project architects, developers, and operators are the RED Office. The stalwart RED Office team share the rewards of the hotel development endeavor equally among all who volunteered their time to make it happen. In this way, we live in a bubble of fairness in a capitalistic society.  We hope you will support our young designers, builders, and managers, who subsidize their artistic careers through this unique organization.

Barrio Logan

Barrio Logan's transformation into an art-centric neighborhood began as far back as the 1960s. When the construction of the Coronado Bridge encroached on a local park, Barrio Logan residents re-claimed the park by painting enormous, colorful murals on the bridge's pillars. The murals depict the life and struggles of San Diego's Mexican community. Today, this art-filled park is known as Chicano Park, and it houses the largest collection of Chicano murals in the world.

Little Italy

Once home to San Diego's flourishing tuna fishing industry and generations of Italian families who made their living on the sea, Little Italy is now a lively neighborhood filled with patio cafés, packed restaurants, craft brew stops, urban wineries, art galleries, sophisticated shops, boutique hotels and the beautiful Amici Park. Today, San Diego's most dynamic food and drink scene is centered in Little Italy. It's a place where the past meets the present, where Top Chef alums have set up shop next to old-school eateries that remain treasured landmarks. 

North Park

The epicenter of North Park is the bar-hopping intersection of University Avenue and 30th Street, where craft beer and cocktails are a mainstay. The neighborhood pulses with great restaurants, shops, entertainment and art blocks, such as Ray Street, which boasts dozens of galleries, live theater and musical shows. The historic Observatory North Park, in the heart of the local business district, offers an impressive year-round live music line up.
