The Mosser, which began in 1913, has been updated and yet still retains much of its old world Victorian charm. A large inviting lobby with friendly, helpful, polite, prompt and professional staff to meet and greet you upon your arrival. The doormen are very quick to respond to your needs by either opening the doors, assisting with luggage, or providing...

I stay at this hotel when I have shows at the Moscone center. I prefer the room with ensuite facilities however the shared bathroom rooms are less expensive. Rooms are small...wait make that TINY. Great for me as a solo but would not work if I was traveling with my wife. The location makes this hotel work. 5 minutes to...

Hello Guest, Thank you for your feedback. Built in 1913, our rooms are quaint but comfortable. The Mosser Hotel is only five minutes walk to the Moscone Convention Center and our location is central. We have attendees and exhibitors who stays with us frequently. We hope to see you again. Best regards, Yvonne Ongpin DOSM

The staff was friendly at all times. I was comfortable. The rooms are small but no smaller than I've experienced in NYC. I was in a room with a private bath and was pleasantly surprised by the size of the tub/shower. And ecstatic about the space for toiletries within the shower. So many hotels get this so so wrong. (without...

Hotels in San Fran are expensive to begin with so finding a place with good ratings and value was hard to come by. The Mosser checked off all the boxes in our search. The location is central (Union Square, BART transit, Embarcadero, and AT&T park are all walkable). The rooms are small but not cramped. Got a room on the...

Perfectly located near Union Square and the Moscone Center for business meetings. Hotel is simple, but clean. Convenient to all amenities and opportunity to exercise at the Marriott across the street. Very friendly staff.

Interesting location in the middle of a very busy downtown centre of San Francisco. Lot's of options for restaurants, shops, bars, and a really good nightlife scene. The entire staff was very polite and friendly. They are there to make a great experience turn into a wonderful one! Affordable prices on boutique modern rooms with eco-friendly in mine.

Clean, comfortable, and cheap..great location...funky European style rooms, but a hell of a good deal. Friendly staff. Close to everything you'd want to see and do, eat and drink. Tiny, but thoughtful rooms.

I was simply looking for a clean place to stay in a safe area for a reasonable price. This is exactly what I got. Trying to save, I had first searched AirBnB and area hostels near the SOMA area. Getaroom was promoting this hotel for a better price than the hostel I had almost booked. We had a queen bed...

Good if you want the basics. Clean with roof over your head and four walls, bed was pretty comfy. Good tv. Nice staff. Nothing luxurious though that's for sure. Weird that the sink was in the bedroom and not the bathroom.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
