Reviewed 30 June 2012

This is a really nice place to stay in downtown San Francisco. Location is great with walking distance to more or less everything. Clean, comfortable rooms with high capacity air condition.
Good value for the money, definitely!

Concierge Ryan was really helpful, try him!

Stayed 9 nights at Diva Hotel in June and have to say I really enjoyed my stay there. In any big city it can be difficult to get everything you need, especially space and while Diva rooms were not massive they were beautifully appointed in such a chic way. Great soft beds, with ample pillows. The room, though small still had a desk and chest of drawers for storage as well as two single cupboards. One was hard to use as it was not the right width but it was still a great hotel. Bathroom was small but very modern and still had a bath. And the nice boutique touch was all the product being by 'Philosophy'. They even left you make up remover wipes...which came in handy on late nights.
The hotel is only a 2 block stroll to Union Square, has good access to Muni train and buses. Also it's only 2 blocks from the tenderloin too... now, this could put some people off but it actually gave us really great access to awesome bars, and we had no trouble walking through there at all. It's probably the place to be if you want to enjoy some of the awesome speakeasy nightlife.
We also used the gym and while the equipment is not new (the treadmills are a bit average) and the room is not massive, it suffices as you get TV and water and towels.
We arrived early and the team gave us our room before check in. Also as we stayed for 9 days we needed some cutlery and bowls for breakfast cereal and they were really accommodating. Lastly they also provided a fridge so we could keep food....all in all great service and chic little place to stay.

My wife and I were slightly disappointed by the rather dingy rn down Hotel Diva. I did enjoy the elevator though.

Diva got a pretty mixed reaction from my family and I.

What really works for the hotel is the location. You're literally 2 blocks away from the super touristy, super commercial Union Square and Market St. (Also 2 -3 blocks away on the right is the not so nice Tenderloin neighborhood. You'd do well not to venture there). The Powell St station cable car is a 5 minute walk away. The Mission and SOMA with their trendy bars and eating places are all within a mile or two from the hotel. All of this works really well if you're the standard tourist in the city.

The hotel itself was alright. All the ingredients for a good hotel - clean rooms, mostly nice staff, decent wifi - are there. But they might have gone just a tad bit overboard with the decor and lighting. I suppose it is supposed to be hip, but it ends up looking rather....dingy. This starts with the elevators and sort of continues on into the room. The blinds with their stocking clad legs graphics might have been a little weird for our family, but I'm sure they're great for couples and younger people on holiday.

Another minor pain point was the tiny toilet.

All things considered, however, this hotel offers pretty reasonable value for your money.

PROS: The hotel is in a great location. It is clean and the staff very friendly. I have some of the same issues with the hotel as others have posted. The toiletries are nice and not low quality. There were no protestors. I was worried about it since so many other reviews mentioned it but I never saw any. I didn't find that the hotel was loud, I heard minimal noise from within my room. No more than you would find anywhere else. Starbucks next to hotel that you can access from within the hotel.

CONS: The elevators are scary, I was afraid they would break down at any minute. The rooms are small but it seemed sufficient. The lighting in the rooms was a different story. Even with a bathroom light, light above the sink (not in the bathroom), two lamps on each side of the bed, a desk lamp, a tall corner lamp and a light above the bed the room was still extremely dark. My room did not have a window so there was no help from the natural light. The bathroom is spacious so it seems odd that the sink is in the main room, there is room for it in the bathroom. The walls need some new paint but no big deal. You can't use your room key to access the business center which is on the 4th floor. You have to go down to the front desk to get a key. There are only 3 small drawers that you could put away your clothes and then the small closet.

Room Tip: Not sure if
