3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for 3 nights. Hotel is in a good location, we walked to bars, restaurants etc. Room was small but all we needed and clean. Beds were terrible, both singles had big dips in them, sore backs in the morning. Would stay here again and maybe expect to ask for a better bed, just couldnt be bothered this time.

This hotel is a smaller hotel in the perfect location. They had a light continental breakfast. Wine and champagne and snacks one night. We loved this hotel. The rooms are small but very clean. Some rooms have shared restrooms. We got a room with a restroom and we were very pleased. The restaurant attached was also great. If you do... More

Stayed here for three nights. Great value deal and excellent location- very central. The room was very small but sufficient and bed was very comfortable. We had opted for shared bathrooms and this worked out very well- never had to wait for either a shower or bathroom. Coffee and muffins are provided in the lobby for breakfast and the staff... More

This hotel is very central to Union Square and a really good price compared to other hotels in the same area. The rooms are small but really nice and there are lovely pastries and coffee in reception every morning.

Not in the greatest part of town if you don't know what streets to avoid (research the tenderloin and skip those streets). The hotel was hipster and the rooms were small but the staff was nice. A bit on the pricey side for what you get. Check Groupon and you may get a break.

The Mosser is a great find in San Francisco. The location is perfect, especially if you are attending an event at Moscone. It is old, but charming. The rooms are small but modern and clean. The staff is helpful and the price is right! We had a top floor front corner room with a bath which wasn't too noisey. it... More

I was traveling to SF on business - a conference at the Marriott Marquis. The Marriott was able to accommodate me for two days of a five day trip. They offered to accommodate me for the extra three days at an exorbitant rate. Enter the Mosser. Now, I have to say, I had my reservations. The reservation clerk confirmed a... More

I had my first time staying at the Mosser during the first week of July. I just want to share that the customer service team was friendly and very attentive with me. I had an issue with my reservation, but all staff members at the front desk helped me solve it and provided different alternatives to make sure I was... More

We went to San Francisco to celebrate my husband's birthday with a Giants game. I am always thorough when researching new hotels, and wanted to stay somewhere in the city without paying a fortune. I was very fortunate to find the Mosser here on trip advisor. The price was right, and so I booked a "Deluxe Full" which had a... More

This is a fairly basic hotel, but was exactly what we needed. It is clean and comfortable, and the staff on the front desk are very helpful. We were given a very small room on our first night, right next to the ice machine which was really noisy. We spoke to the front desk the next morning though and were... More
