Good for the explorer

Posted Jul 23, 2014
Door/bellman could be more attentive and professional. Not the best smell in corridor and partially in room in which I believe was due to the shared restroom. Shared bathroom was very tight. Room was fine for the exploring the city but if you plan to stay in most of the time wouldnt be best. Didnt have noise issues was pretty quite overall for location.

Very central location, very close to attractions

Posted Jul 23, 2014
The staff was kind and informed and the location phenomenal, 1 minute walk to BART and muni, a couple minutes to union square and cable cars. The rooms are small but quaint, absolutely adequate, and tastefully decorated. You can hear hall noise from in your room, but it wasn't a big deal.

Staff was nice. They let me check in early. It was a Friday afternoon, they were handing out free wine. Did not eat the breakfast, but I saw a table that had coffee and some muffins. Not sure if there was more food some other place. Rooms are small. The is no couch or love seat. So, there is no place for extra people to sleep. Location is good. Lots of places to eat. Close to the subway stop. In the bathroom, they had a set of ear plugs. I guess other guests have had noise problems. I did not notice any noise in the room. When you are in the halls, you can hear people in their rooms. If you just need a place to crash for a day or two, I would recomend it. Longer stays, you might want a place with more square footage.

Central San Francisco

Posted Jul 18, 2014
The hotel is in a great central location, less than a minutes walk from Powell BART station. The rooms are small but perfectly useable as somewhere to sleep and get ready in. Clean and tidy hotel, if not a little noisy (mostly noise from the plumbing!). For the price a great hotel and location.

Trip July 2014

Posted Jul 16, 2014
Pros: Location in SF was excellent (see above)
Cons: Probably not enough room to do it, but having a bath/john in the room would be helpful.
Location: Lots of restaurants/bars; Several museums and interesting parks. Perhaps the best feature though is having public transport nearby (BART, MUNI, bus)
The hotel and our room were clean and well-maintained. The room we had was extremely small (maybe the rooms are all that way), Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Staying in SF for a week we found that we were always tripping over something in the room. Having the bath, restroom outside of the room was also inconvenient at times. Having one elevator was inconvenient also. Good location though for attractions, restaurants, public transport was a strong point.

Great Location, small room.

Posted Jul 15, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Bellhop service. Not very suitable for families.
Location: Near Buena Vista Park, Union Square, shopping and Cable Cars.
Nice clean hotel in a great downtown location. If a private bath is desired, specify ahead because they do have some rooms with shared baths. Rooms are small but very clean.

Avon Walk 2014

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: Love being in an old building. Opening a window to cool it down, so much better than a musty room air conditioner would be!
Cons: Plumbing. Our tub took forever to drain. Made it a wait between roommates to shower and then we rushed our showers to not fill tub too much!
Location: Location is prime. Access to plenty of shopping, sights and restaurants of every flavor!
I stayed at the Mosser because they were right across the street from the Marquis and the Avon Walk used that hotel as their host. I had not realized the host hotel had changed to the St. Francis, about 3 blocks away and up hill from the Mosser when I booked it this year. BUT my group switched from 2 of us to 3 and they moved a bed into our room. Portable bed not very comfy…but that was to be expected. We just needed the room to sleep in and it was quiet. The staff is really sweet. Most of not native English speaking, but that doesn't mean they will not understand you because all of them spoke perfect English as well as several other languages from Spanish to Chinese. Very accommodating. Please be prepared for small rooms, as it is an old building. Also be prepared for less than prime plumbing. Never ran out of hot water, but there were draining issues in both the sink and tub in our room!

Great little nostalgic hotel

Posted Jul 8, 2014
Cons: Staff could be more experienced in providing service. The valet was the friendliest of the lot.
Location: Fantastic location, alongside Union Square and steps to the Cable Car line!
Fantastic, older, but updated hotel in the thick of it all. The rooms are all relatively small but very quaint. Make sure you book a room with a bathroom in your room it that is important to you. The attached restaurant/lounge is open late and offers superb fare! Would definitely stay there again and recommend this hotel to our friends and family!

Great location!

Posted Jul 5, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Lobby music
Location: ATT&T Park, shopping and great restaurants.
Loved the character of the hotel with the architectural detail. The coffee and muffins provided each morning were wonderful. All of the staff were great. The only thing I would really change is the choice of music in the Lobby, some sort of techno electronic stuff night and day...just not my thing. If that's the worst thing, so what!!! I would definitely recommend the Mosser for those wanting to be " in the city".
