I was in town to visit friends and was referred to the Parker Guesthouse as a great place to stay. All of my expectations were exceeded! The staff was friendly and helpful and the attention to detail from the rooms to the common areas was superb. I would recommend it without reservation if you're looking for a B&B with all... More

I travel to San Francisco yearly and always stay at the Parker Guest House. It's located between The Castro and The Mission, and transportation couldn't be more convenient. The rooms are immaculate, the staff is super friendly and the surroundings are inviting. What more could you want?

Beautiful rooms and extremely friendly staff. I can't decide if the best part is the back garden or the delicious breakfasts. Our room was on the street, but we were not bothered by any noise. We will be back.

Charming garden, pretty rooms with all amenities, and wonderfully helpful staff make staying in San Francisco at this b & b a more intimate and calm experience compared with downtown hotels. Easy BART ride or Uber anywhere.

The staff at Parker Guest House were incredibly helpful for the entire time my fiance and I visited. The room was beautiful, and the location couldn't be better for those who want easy access to the Castro, Dolores Park, and all the trams and trolleys. When we return to San Francisco, we'll definitely stay here again!

We had a great stay at the Parker Guest House. All of the staff were welcoming, friendly and very helpful. There was plenty of selection at breakfast and the wine social in the afternoon was nice. We would definitely stay here again

My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights in late April and were drawn initially to the property for its 'Tales of the City' aesthetic. We arrived late evening and were subject to the properties quaint after hours system. You have to follow the instructions sent to uncover your own key. While this may not be for all, it... More

Were able to stay only one night but it felt like 'us' as soon as we walked in. Beautiful premises, and a wonderful location between two marvellous historic locations, the Castro and Mission. There's a tram direct to downtown and the Embarcadero waterfront area right outside, which is wonderfully convenient. We didn't eat locally, but there looked to be lots... More

Very nice stay in the Castro area. Quant guest house with very helpful staff. Ask for availability of parking they have limited spaces. Get the rooms with private bath. There are two separate houses and a very nice garden area. They serve a light breakfast and have a nice wine social in the late afternoon.

Staying in The Castro

Neighborhood Profile
The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighborhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation. Grand theaters and glitzy shops now compete with bars and fashionable eateries for attention, drawing visitors from around the world to the bright rainbow flag acting as its beacon.
