I needed to find a cost effective hotel near the Moscone Centre. This one fits the bill. The room was small but clean and had a comfortable bed. The bathroom and shower were in the hallway but I didn't even see another person and I suspect the hotel was full. They were clean and there were no issues. I had... More

Dear QKiwi, Thank you for your comments. It really gets expensive in San Francisco during high season and when the city is sold out due to high demand for rooms during big meetings at the Moscone convention center. We call our European affordable rooms GEMS at our property. These are rooms that cater to guests who are on a strict... More

Absolutely perfect location to see all the sites of San Francisco! Within walking distance to most things. And public transport is almost at your doorstep. The room was quite small, but you spend very little time in there. Service was satisfactory.

After searching for a hotel in downtown San Francisco and finding only out the roof prices for decent lodging, I decided to bid on Hotwire for my stay and got The Mosser Hotel. Thankfully, Hotwire assured me that their hotels have private bathrooms wich was the case with the room I obtained. It was however rater smallish as was the... More

One of the things I enjoy about traveling is researching hotels and trying to find something just a little bit different. I'm not one for high end hotels but I don't want budget. I want a place that has character and offers great quality. I found it in The Mosser! My partner and I spent the weekend here and we... More

The Mosser is remarkably cheap for central San Francisco. The rooms are tiny but perfectly serviceable. I had a shared bathroom, but it was spotless and always available when I needed it. I skipped the free breakfast, which was basic but looked fine. My only complaint is that the walls are really thin, and if your neighbour is watching TV... More

Centrally located near Powell St BART/MUNI Station. 1/2 Block to Market for lots of bus lines. Clean. No AC, they give you ear plugs and suggest opening the window with ceiling fan (it was fine) I slept comfortably. The room had a sink with a small mesh carry basket to take my toiletries to the shared bath. Lots of towel,... More

If you are in San Fran...stay here. They are small, convenient, and staff is very pleasant and extremely helpful. Walking distance to a lot of places. Okay for just a place to sleep and hang your coat, too busy outside the hotel to worry about what it or didn't have! Good Price!

The Mosser is definitely a no frills hotel but in that succeedes greatly. The full double room we got wasn't big, which was not a problem for us since we were in town to visit not spend time in the room. Overall the hotel is very clean, the decor is nicely vintage without being worn out, the beds are very... More
