“Central Hotel in San Francisco”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Stayed for two nights, very clean and tidy, if you get a room overlooking the front its very noisy.
A little on the camp side for our taste. Having said that the decor was unusual but pleasant. Room on the small side but well finished. A very central position only steps from Union Square.

Stayed here for a couple of nights as part of a bigger trip around California-We had a Deluxe Double Double- not sure what the extra Double got us, but it was a good sized bedroom with small/tiny ensuite- so tiny the sink was in the bedroom itself. Our door did not fit the frame - by over an inch on one side, so the noise and light from the corridor at night was annoying, however this was drowned out by the AC and the Garbage men through the night and morning- Not the hotel to stay in if you want to sleep. The lifts are incredibly slow and the corridors and room we were in were very dark.
On the plus side the hotel is in a great location and has a Starbucks attached to the lobby as well as good diners/breakfast options on the same block. Complimentary Sake in the lobby in the evening is a nice touch.

Room Tip: We were on the back of the hotel so no light and very noisy from the back of the restaurants/bars et...

My wife and I stayed here at the start of May as a part of our month long trip of the States/Mexico and we couldn't have been happier. This boutique hotel has it all. Great location,friendly staff and a certain feel that makes you instantly comfortable. If you are lookin for a 5 star hotel with all the trimmings then this hotel won't be for you but if you are looking for a clean and affordable room to use as a base while you enjoy what San Francisco has to offer then this hotel is perfect.

Out off all of the rooms I have stayed in this trip, this has to be by far the smallest room, but it has been the best dressed room I have ever stayed in .... I loved it! The hotel is only a few minutes walk from Union Square, which makes it very convenient, but as you might expect, it can be noisy at night. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

Stayed here June 3-5 on the third floor, no bed bugs thank goodness! Got a great price through a deal on their website and they upgraded my room for free when I arrived. Location is central and convenient to public transportation, just don't turn the wrong way and end up in the Tenderloin area. The bed was comfortable and the toiletries were nice. Staff were super friendly all around, especially Eileen at the front desk. The building is starting to show its age, but nothing major. The biggest thing that would make a difference would be thicker windows, so you don't have to hear all the noise from the street. Ask for an interior room if you are a light sleeper.

Staff was very nice during my late night check-in. Room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Great hot water and water pressure in the shower. Parts of the wall above the bed in room 322 were starting to peel away but it didn't affect my stay. Location was great- just a couple blocks from Union Square and Market Street. Easy to get to everything. They have an airport shuttle that comes to the hotel that was painless -$15. The cab right from the airport to the hotel was $50. You can take the Bart but I had a late flight into the city. I liked having an empty mini fridge I could use and a combo heater/fan/ac.

I stayed at the Hotel Diva for a two night stay to San Francisco last week. From check in to check out the service I encountered was five star, from the front desk staff to housekeeping and the engineering department.

I currently work at a five star hotel on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and know what it's like to experience such great service and comfort.

I would strongly consider any traveler to stay here as there are no bed bugs of any kind as a previous reviewer must have dreamt up and the personal service is such a warm and friendly lasting impression.
