We had a wonderful four night stay at the Mokara. We had two a joining rooms and it was the perfect location to get around the city. We mostly did walking and taking Lyft and taxis. The staff was wonderful and the rooms are large. I would definitely stay here again.

This is a smart hotel in an ideal location in San Antonio, beside the river walk. The hotel is clean and bright and is finished to a very high standard. Staff are very helpful especially the concierge whom takes time to arrange a programme to fit your needs. Food in the riverside restaurant is excellent. Well worth a visit

Overall very good hotel, was especially pleased with the room which was comfortable and spacious. A few complaints: I was out most of the day and when I got back they still hadn't cleaned the room, and the restaurant Ostra is not that good in my opinion (I also didn't think their lunch recommendation for a place outside the hotel...

Outstanding small hotel with excellent service. Right on the river walk with restaurants nearby.The pool area on the roof looked quite nice and the views are good. Within walking distance of the Alamo which is well worth a visit.

This hotel was exquisite. Flawless service and a wonderful historic property that has been transformed into a classic. Ostra restaurant was very delicious if you want seafood. I just can't say enough about the attention to detail. My "go to" in San Antonio.

Great staff and facilities.....especially if you are looking for a high-quality boutique hotel experience in the heart of San Antonio's Riverwalk area! Visit the rooftop pool and spa. They have a rooftop cafe and when the cafe is closed they will still deliver your meal and/or drinks to the rooftop well into the evening so you can enjoy the view...
