It was off season and the weather was rainy all 4 days we stayed so this likely impacted the number of guests. It's only 1 block from the nearest subway stop. The room was small but adequate with a shared hall bathroom. It worked out well because few other guests used the shared bathroom but this may prove inconvenient and... More

We stayed here for four nights in December. The guesthouse was beautiful, especially with the fireplace and Christmas decorations. "This house was made for Christmas" one of the staff told me. The room was very nice - warm, clean and the most comfortable soft but firm bed. The breakfast, although all carbs (a little protein from the local deli helped... More

What a beautiful house, or should I say homes. Parker Guest House is two Victorian homes with a common garden/patio joining them together. There are various rooms, some with private baths and some with shared baths. I was upgraded to a private bath which was so nice of them. The staff was kind enough to drag my bags upstairs for...

Our son has bern living in San Francisco for three years and we'll probably be visiting him at least once a year. Parker House will be our choice each time. Welcoming and helpful staff, great rooms and breakfasts, and very handy... More

As usual, my stay was very pleasant. Thanks for the upgrade from Regular Queen to deluxe when my room wasn't ready as early as I arrived! As usual, my stay was very pleasant. Thanks for the upgrade from Regular Queen to deluxe when my room wasn't ready as early as I arrived!

We stayed at the Parker Guest House for three nights. The staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast offered many delicious choices. It is well located, allowing us to freely explore the neighborhood and all it offers. We would most definitely return again.

I stayed here for a week and wish I could have stayed longer. It is, quite simply, one of the nicest places I have stayed in anywhere. It consists of two adjoining houses sharing a beautiful garden area, comfortable, though not enormous, rooms and staff who are extremely kind and helpful and really seem to enjoy what they do. A...

We stayed for a long weekend, in town for a wedding in the mission district. We were able to walk to all our events. Walking distance to many great restaurants and bars. Also was close to train to get downtown in a matter of 10 minutes. Breakfast was set up nice with a variety of items, we missed wine social... More

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.
