No air just a ceiling fan ,for a person with allergies who cannot use fans it was stifling at night. Window has to stay closed especially at night because it is very very loud traffic outside day and night, street people screaming etc. Stayed here for 5 days which was close to the convention I went to,so location was good....

1. Checking in: When I tried to check in, I used my VISA credit card with a chip. For some reason, the card machine in this hotel requires a PIN from the credit card. I told the concierge that I've never been asked for a PIN while using a credit card in the States. She insisted that a PIN is...

I stayed here last year. It was serviceable then but not again. The room faced the street and I could hear everything all through the night. The room was clean but when the heat came on, I thought I was in the tropics. Since it was rainy during my stay, the air was very humid with little relief. The plumbing...

Stayed here for 2 nights and was extremely pleased. Firstly it is very well kept, stepping into the lobby you already feel welcomed with friendly staff to help you through. The rooms itself are clean with modern fittings. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was clean. Liked the fact that it was close to restaurants, shopping and the BART...

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...

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.

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...

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.
