Great European style hotel in SF, share bathroom for some rooms. Near union square and Metro station close by too. Valet is a bit expensive.

I was choosing the hotel never being to SF or USA in general before. I was on business trip and needed to stay in SF alone for 2 days, So i relyed on bookingdotcom and there was high rating for this hotel.
But i was quite shocked as i cam? to stay! The location was great, but the hotel - rooms are just TINY and the sink was right at the bed, and no toilet in the room (though i knew it won't be). And i couldn't even buy water in the hotel or order a tea.
But it was quite clean, the bathroom was ok and the complimentary muffins and morning tea sweetend the pill =)

I stayed at The Mosser on my last visit to San Francisco and loved it! Yes, the room are small, but they are immaculate and so modern. I felt like I was in Europe! I was so impressed by the kind and helpful staff. Everyone was warm, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I was pleased with the location, too - it was perfect! Close to everything you need - tourist spots, shopping, restaurants, trolleys and cabs. My huband and I had a romantic dinner at the restaurant attached, Annabelle's - what fantastic food. I highly recommend the duck and the salmon. Delish! I left my heart in San Francisco - at The Mosser Hotel!
I travel to San Francisco annually to participate in the Nike Women's Marathon. Usually I travel with a team and my accommodations are taken care of, but this year I participated in the event on my own. As with the race registrations each year, the hotels in the area fill up quickly. And with the start line being at Union Square, location is everything!
I found the Mosser quite by accident on one of the large travel sites. It was offered as part of a package deal with one caveat - I could get the package (round trip from southern California and a four night stay) for just over $300 (discount applied), but the only room available was a "single." These rooms have a sink and mirror in them, but use a shared toilet and hall bath, all of which gave me pause because bathroom time is important when preparing for - and after - a marathon, for various reasons.
Still, though I had my concerns, my choices were limited, so I took the deal, single room and all, and I have to say, I was NOT disappointed. Though not huge, my single was clean and nicely decorated, and all in all was spacious enough for my needs. Better still, it was just blocks away from Union Square, and afforded me easy proximity to the start line. It is also convenient to the Powell St. BART station, and the hotel���s 4th street location intersects Market St., and is within walking distance to myriad shops, restaurants and entertainment destinations.
I was a bit concerned about street noise, but the reality is, even when I stayed on the 14th floor of a nearby four-star hotel, I still could hear noise all night. There seems to be no escaping it if your destination is Union Square.
All in all, the Mosser is a great value for the budget-conscious, and for those looking for a true boutique hotel experience.

When you read the other reviews and people say the rooms are tiny, it's cause THEY ARE!
The ""Budget rooms"" come with a bed, a tiny TV, a sink, and (luckily) a ceiling fan (you'll need it). They say you're going to use a shared bathroom but you're sharing with everyone else on the floor. There are two bathrooms (toilet only) and ONE shower (which gets used all day). We never had a problem with waiting for a shower but it's kinda gross to know that everyone else is using it when you're not. You're lucky if you get a good view. We got to see the back side of a building that was probably 4 feet way from our building, and we were right above the kitchen so we got to hear the lovely conversations of the kitchen staff and clanging of pots and pans. The double pane windows are a nice feature but not when you can't close them cause it's too hot (we were there in september). The pillows aren't nice, the sheets are all staticky, so please find somewhere else to stay.

we just got back from our stay at the mosser and we couldnt have been happier. the staff was very friendly and helped us find our way around the area. the area surrounding the hotel is full of great shopping spots and it is within walking distance of anything. dont let the ""small room"" reviews scare you; the rooms are nice and very clean. perfect pick for honeymooners wanting something more personal.

I've only stayed here once, so I'm not sure if there are room sizes vary. I stayed in posibbly the smallest hotel room I have ever checked into, but the furnishings were extremely modern and clean. The surroundings were also awesome - a big movie theater, great restaurants, the SF mall, nice cafes, etc (Orbitz gives you a great deal on this hotel).

We stayed here once before and really enjoyed the place... the second time was equally as great. The lobby is so beautiful - a mix of modern and victorian. The rooms are really modern and fun. It is an old hotel so the rooms are not very big, but the location and decor is excellent... not to mention the great price. This place is worth trying!
