If you want to be in the heart of San Francisco, chances are your hotel will be a little bit noisy and a little bit small. If you want to be in the heart of San Francisco and stay in your hotel room...you might be doing it wrong.
The Mosser is a perfect base to explore San Francisco - it's affordable, comfortable, and best of all, in the middle of everything.
Great hotel.Recommended for:

European style hotel in amazing location. Beautiful old building with a lot of charm. Rooms are modern but small - some with shared bath others with private. I got a deluxe double for 140 a night for a last min weekend stay. Perfect.Recommended for:

So central, it's practically got a bulls-eye on its roof. But not much more; the barebones hotel prides itself on its location and its price. You can stay in nearby hotels for double or even triple the price. If you don't mind small rooms -- some with shared bathrooms -- the speedy, free Wi-Fi and cleanliness make it comparable to other more expensive downtown hotels.Recommended for:

A boutique hotel in the middle of the Financial District around the corner from the huge Old Navy. They offer rooms with shared bathrooms or ensuite bath. The accommodations are mostly modern and it's probably one of the best sleeps I've had in a hotel. That said, the rooms are a bit small so be prepared for that.

If I told you there was a European-style hotel with a pro recording studio in the heart of Downtown San Francisco, would you believe me? That’s The Mosser, located on the same block as the city’s biggest mall, across the street from the Powell Cable Car turnaround and two blocks from Union Square. It’s charming inside, vintage but not “old,” and the service is no less wonderful. Most rooms share bathrooms (European!), though there are some rooms with full bathrooms within.
Step outside and you’ll find a number of restaurants within a stroll of the hotel. BART and MUNI are located just around the corner, making it really convenient to reach other areas of SF and the Bay Area without requiring a cab.
I mentioned the recording studio earlier. It’s Studio Paradiso, known among local musicians. If cutting a hot record is part of your stay in SF, consider The Mosser.

If rating this hotel on overall value...it gets 5+ stars. Arguably the best value in downtown SF. Small rooms, thin walls, loud pipes....HOWEVER, it was very functional and only a few blocks from Union Square, roughly 50 steps from a BART station, and provided complimentary coffee and muffins in the lobby every morning. I would stay here again.

Before I moved to San Francisco I stayed at the Mosser twice and it is one of the hotels I recommend most often to visitors. The rooms are EXTREMELY cozy--kind of a bed & breakfast feel. I also like the place because it is close to the BART, Union Square and Market St. So you will not have too much trouble finding plenty of things to do around your hotel.
