Centralized Location and not too Pricey

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 14, 2011

The Mosser is one step up from a hostel with shared (individual) toilets and showers counting one on each floor. But for a really expensive city, it's very centralized and walking to just about anywhere is convenient. I walked to Golden Gate Park via Haight/Ashbury the first day and it was a trek but worth it. On day two, I walked through ChinaTown, Lombard Street (the crookedest street), Russian Hill and to the Golden Gate Bridge (also worth it). Both days were treks but my nights were easy as the hotel's near plenty of eating establishments. I plan to go back (eventually to move there) but I will utilize the Mosser's efficiency in price and surroundings, again!

Directions: On 4th right near the BART stop (forgetting which one exactly). Really easy to find. Also near lots of shopping!

Great inexpensive hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 7, 2010

I was staying at this hotel some time between 2001 and 2003.
It was very elegant, quiet and clean hotel.
I was traveling on a budget and was staying at the room with shared bathroom.
I remember having no problem with showering in bathroom located on the corridor.
I noticed when the cleaning staff was cleaning the bathroom and scheduled my day to take shower right after the bathroom was cleaned.

Unique Quality: It is a great option for those who have to travel on a budget but are sick and tired of dirty and loud hotels.
Hotel is located right downtown next to public transportation.
This allows for easy sightseeing of San Fran.

I would definitely consider staying there again.

Directions: Market Street and Fourth Street
next to The Container Store and Old Navy store

The Mosser

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Mosser is a historic building just off Market Street, maybe two blocks from Union Square and just around the corner from the San Francisco Shopping Center. The building was constructed in 1913, but recently remodeled in 2003, so all of the rooms are new and modern.

We stayed here in summer 2007 due to the location (near Union Square and walking distance to AT&T Park) and the relatively low price... yes $140 + $20 in taxes is low for this neighborhood on a summertime Friday night (though just a month earlier, prices were much cheaper). We were heading to the Giants game, so we parked at a nearby garage ($30 for 24 hours) and walked to the stadium, deciding to check in after the night game. Later, after the visiting Pirates beat the Giants 8-7 and we stopped for a few beers...we finally checked in around 1:30am. Service was prompt as we were the only people in the lobby at that time of night! Our room was especially tiny...only in Japan have I seen hotel rooms barely 10 feet by 10 feet--so small the 6 inch TV was attached to the bed to get it out of the way. The queen-size bed was almost too big for the room.

The room was nice with a ceiling fan (no A/C), a new alarm clock/radio/CD player, and modern furnishings, but it lacked free wifi, had no view, and was noisy in the morning with the homeless guys out in the street below yelling at 6am.

Not a bad place in a pinch, but expensive considering the size of the room. Clean and safe are certainly plusses here.

Cosy digs downtown

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 22, 2005

I stayed here with my toddler in August 2005. We loved everything from the chaise longes in the foyer to the funky dining room to the cosy little nest we were allocated on the 4th floor. By looking in the other rooms during cleaning time, we knew we had got the worst room, but it was all we needed. I would not recommend it for 2 adults, because there is hardly room to swing a cat, but the interior decorator had done a great job with what little space there was. The bathroom was neat and clean too.

Unique Quality: The location could not be beat. Just steps away from Market Street with its subway stations and tram stops. The kids playground at Yerba Vista Centre was hardly further at a 3 minute walk.

Directions: You can take the BART (subway) direct from San Francisco airport (SFO) to Powell St. The Mosser is just around the corner. We negotiated this route with a stroller and backpack no problem.

Boutique Hotel with Excellent Location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 4, 2005

The Mosser is a sort of boutique hotel in the very heart of San Francisco on Fourth Street. Market Street with all its shops is just stone throw away and SFMoMA is just across a park.

The hotel has been recently redesigned, so the rooms are airy and stocked with good amenities. Note that you'll have to share bathroom with other travellers, unless you book a deluxe room.

I don't know how other rooms look like but room was very small but clean and well equipped. Internet access in room is available but extra charged. It is not so speed as advertised but it's acceptable if you just need to check your e-mail.
