Sometimes you know you're going to mostly be out and about on a trip. In those cases, I like to be close to the action... walking distance, a short cab ride, and public transit. The Mosser fits all of those criteria. It's only a block from the Moscone Convention Center, a cab or Super Shuttle ride from the airport. A... More

This hotel is excellent, the rooms are small but clean and the location couldn't be better. It was a great price and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in San Francisco and can't wait to go back. When we do we will certainly stay here!

I wanted to stay somewhere clean, safe, comfortable, convenient, and budget priced. The Mosser is all of the above and more. The staff is welcoming, friendly, and helpful; and there's good coffee and tasty mini-muffins in the lobby each morning. The rooms are quite small but well appointed, and it was no inconvenience at all to have toilet and shower/bath... More

We spend 1 night at the Mosser in late July. The room was very small as were the shared bathrooms on the floor. However, everything was clean and comfortable. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go, including our Alcatraz tour. The door man was EXCELLENT and they were able to hold our bags and our car in... More

Spent four nights in August 2014. For the price, I was expecting a room slightly larger than a double bed's width wide and no wardrobe. Most of the rooms face each other in a C-shape, and the gap between your windows and the opposite room's windows is no more than 8 feet (2.5 metres). As the rooms have blinds instead... More

I sincerely enjoyed my stay at The Mosser. The location is great (walking distance from ATT park) and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Though the rooms are small and there is a shared bathroom/ shower for each single floor, the rooms are very quaint and "European" with your own sink. (Note: You could upgrade to a deluxe room...

My wife and I decided to spend an impromptu night in San Francisco. We visit often, but this time I decided to try a new place. I found a room at the Mosser and what a lucky find it was! We had a wonderful corner room with two bay windows. I was a little concerned about the noise potential being... More

I have reviewed this hotel on several occasions, and it is my first choice for the Moscone Center area, thanks to its terrific location, friendly staff and reasonable rates. On my most recent trip, I booked one of the small rooms that don't have bathroom/shower en suite. I wasn't able to get a deluxe room with bath Honestly, I was... More

Stayed here for two nights - it was one of the inexpensive decent looking hotels that we found. Great location; if you're into the main noisy hustle and bustle. The room itself was small (smaller than we expected), but it did its job. Staff members were friendly and really helpful - if you need directions, just ask them and the'll... More

Stayed in this hotel for one night together with my girlfriend. The rooms were very small, with little space for cases. Nonetheless, the bed was comfortable, room was clean, and the location was excellent, sitting just off of market street.
