Modern boutique hotel with recording studio near Union Square

Quirky, modern and ultra-hip, The Mosser Hotel is the only lodging option in San Francisco with a state-of-the-art recording studio on premises. Rooms in this Union Square hotel are clean and efficient. All have platform beds, while some have private bathrooms and others share. Annabelle's Bar & Bistro, the on-site restaurant, utilizes organic ingredients sourced directly from area farms.

Highlights
  • State-of-the-art recording studio
  • On-site Annabelle's Bar & Bistro

  • Walking distance to shopping at Union Square and Westfield Centre mall
Rooms

"The Mosser," as it's known locally, has 166 rooms in all -- 112 deluxe rooms with private bathrooms and 54 "economical" rooms with shared hall baths for travelers on smaller budgets. Each room boasts platform beds and vanity sinks. Rooms also come standard with robes, ceiling fans, hair dryers and free Wi-Fi. Many rooms have windows that look out onto busy city streets; some even have reading nooks built into bay windows.

Features

Opened in 1913 as the Keystone Hotel, the historic property was completely redesigned in 2003 and now feels modern and chic.

The centerpiece of that redesign was Studio Paradiso, a state-of-the-art recording studio that is available to hotel guests. Other standard amenities include ironing boards, two-line telephones and custom-designed furniture.

In early 2010, the hotel announced a commitment to embrace eco-friendly products in all the rooms. The Mosser family donates a portion of all hotel proceeds to reforestation, literacy and educational projects.

 

Dining

For a fabulous cocktail or tasty sandwich, pull up a stool at Annabelle's Bar & Bistro, a French-style eatery located on the ground floor. The restaurant features an eclectic wine selection.

Wow, smallest hotel room ever!

I guess I cant complain for the price, but that was one small hotel room! They made it work though. No desk or night stand really, just a bed, a chair, and a small stool that served as a flat surface for setting things down. Tiny sink in the main room separate from the bath room, which had a stand-up shower. No closet. One improvement would have been at least some hooks and hangers to hang clothes somewhere. But for the price, it was a good value. I would stay there again.

Cozy budget-friendly accommodations in Downtown SF

I had a pleasant one-night stay in a "Shared Bathroom Queen" which is a clean, fairly modern-looking room with about 80% of the floorspace occupied by a comfortable queen bed. Also in the room: a sink (with the usual hotel toiletries included), a VIZIO flatscreen TV, chair, stool and small bedside stand (with alarm clock). This compact arrangement worked out well for me since I was just at the hotel to relax a little, then sleep after a busy day in San Francisco. The shared mens bathroom was a bit cramped; it had just enough space for a toilet and its usage, but for me, that wasn't a big deal. I didn't use the shared shower and can't comment on that. The hotel staff were very friendly, and the free morning coffee and muffins in the lobby were a nice way to start the day. The location is excellent as well; it's a short walk away from the Yerba Buena Gardens, the Powell BART station, Market Street, the Westfield Shopping Centre and many dining options. If you need more space and/or privacy, consider one of their other rooms which include a bathroom, but if you're looking for a nice, little place to rest after spending time in the city, the "Shared Bathroom Queen" is an affordable option for one (or two) budget-conscious traveler(s).

Mislabeled Hostel

This hotel is in the best location! The trouble was more that it was mislabeled. It should have been listed as a hostel. The room had a twin size bed and a sink and that was all. There was no place to put clothes. No drawers, no closet. But we can sum it up in one sentence. The bathroom is communal; the bathroom is for the entire floor. Decide how comfortable you are without having a bathroom in your room. Is that what you are willing to do?

Thouroughly Modern Mosser

I was traveling solo and booked a deluxe queen room with the shared bathroom, as it decisively was a better option than airBnB. The Mosser is modern in regards to both aesthetics and functionality. Sensible, hassle - free, clean and well designed. Would and already have recommended to friends.

Good Stop-over

I had to stop-over in SF for one night at the end of my holiday. Good hotel, well located in the center of the business district. Good bistro next door. Room compact, but clean and had everything that I needed. Only disappointment was breakfast, they only had coffee and muffins in the Lobby with nowhere to sit. Apart from that, very good choice.

Small room with shared bath

I had a test in downtown SF and checked in this hotel for one night. It was great to find a stay in SF. The shared bath is clean. The room is very small but clean. Good to stay in downtown SF with a limit budget

Fantastic convention location, but know what you're in for

I stayed at The Mosser in late January for a convention at Moscone. If you're in town for a convention, the location is perfect: Moscone West is just two short blocks south. The rooms are, as described, really quite small. I stayed in a shared queen, and the arrangement of the bed was quite ridiculous. It's quite easy to see that this room was not intended for a bed of this size. When you walk in, you see the headboard against the wall, a quite conventional thing. But you'll notice that the pillows/etc are placed on the side of the bed, for you're expected - and indeed, it's necessary - to sleep sideways on the bed, with the headboard to your side. Fortunately the beds are quite comfortable. Like some other reviewers have mentioned, the rooms get quite warm. The heaters do not turn off, and the window was stuck, so for the first few days my room became a hot, sweltering mess. Fortunately we eventually got the window opened and it was much more comfortable, at the expense of increased street noise. A word of warning if you're booking through here, however. When I checked in, the front desk did not understand that I had already (pre)paid for my room, through the site. The problem was quickly remedied via a call to support, where the operator contacted the hotel and informed them of the situation (I had to do this the next morning, as presumably the staff did not communicate this to the next shift). Just have the phone number ready so that you can have them clear up any problems.

Great little hotel, lots of clean quality personality.

I reserved a queen room with shared bathroom. You get a small room with wall mounted TV, coat closet(w/iron and board), queen bed with reading lamps, normal sized corner sink, Window to alley, and mirror hair dryer/toiletries. I paid $90 and felt like it was well worth it for the location and quality of the room. You share a Shower room, and a specific men's or women's room with 2 other queen rooms on your floor. The rest of the hotel is the normal bathroom in room style. The lobby is basic, but has free breakfast muffins and coffee from 6am-10am. It was well visited by lots of visitors that lounged for an hour or so while I worked on my computer, enjoying coffee. Lots of internationals and couples seemed to be the clients. Will definitely use again, I liked my cozy quiet room.
