The Mosser

Reviewed 27 May 2009

I recently spent two weekend nights at the Mosser Hotel on 4th St in SF. I was not sure what to expect since I made my reservation online from NYC, and the hotel's room cost was in the "value" range.

Wow, this was a great hotel experience! The lobby and our room were both clean and elegant in an old world style. We got a good-sized corner room with two bay windows overlooking the city streets. Despite this central location, the room itself was quiet (double paned windows really did keep out the noise). A modest but tasty breakfast of coffee, tea and muffins was available at reception in the morning. Every person who assisted us at the hotel was sincere and helpful. This hotel offers not only great value but also a memorable home base from which to explore the beautiful city. I will stay at the Mosser again and recommend to friends. --JC

Like the many other positive reviews on here, our stay at the Mosser was nothing short of great. Check-in gave us complimentary chocs (always a delight), check out was smooth and the staff gave us the most invaluable of heads-up: that the BART was running a Sunday schedule & we wouldn't be able to get to the Airport on time! They promptly arranged a shuttle for us at a great price.

24-hour security / reception & facilities were always clean. Yes, rooms are small but I don't think many visiters would be staying in their rooms whatever the purpose of their trip! There's a cute lil bistro next door, very old-school & very cool. Oh, and great value rates too - check online.

Go.

This Art Deco hotel was a great find. Convenient location. Very good staff and good service! Great price for San Francisco. I stayed a week and really enjoyed it. I will stay there again.

The location of The Mosser is phenomenal, it is right at the hear of the city, walking distance to most attractions. The value is unmatched for this location. The hotel is clean and comfortable. So this is a great pick for anyone who is there to tour the city. But if you want to spend time in your room, this is not the hotel for you as the rooms are unbelievably small (see photos). Also, print your reservation when going there, they had our rate and dates incorrect on file and our printed reservation saved us from the pain.

The Mosser is a basic hotel with few amenities, but a killer location in the heart of the shopping district. The staff is friendly, though not overly so. The rooms are quite small, but the low-budget chic. They have a very nice welcome kit that includes everything you may need (wax strips!!, pepto-bismol and sunscreen).
The hotel is a short walk from Union Square and just behind the Nordstorm store. Fisherman's Wharf and the Bridge are also just a short taxi ride away.
Definitely recommended for a short, tourism/shopping trip

The location of this hotel is perfect!!! Bart station around the corner, muni and cable cars a few walking steps away. Everything is conveniently near by including Union Square. Local shops are all within walking distance of no more than 2 minutes. The staff here are really friendly. The hotel also served complimentary coffee and muffins for breakfast at the lobby from a certain time. Check in for us was supposed to be at 3pm, we arrived at noon and was able to check in early. My check out was noon and my departure was not til 6pm, I was quite surprised when the staff offered to hold my baggage til then. The only downfall overall was the room was surprisingly small. I got a couple's room with a queen size bed but no bathroom included. The room had a sink in the corner next to the bed. Separate shared bathroom and shower are located down the hall but since our room was next to it, it wasn't so bad and plus they were always clean and tidy. They say you get what you pay for but hey, you can't beat it's location in the midst of everything!!
