Perfect location close to Castro street, Dolores Park and Valencia Street! We were welcomed by Scott who immediately made us feel at home! The room we got four our first four nights was very nice and cosy. The last night, we were transferred to another (because of late booking by me) and they handled this perfectly with changing room for... More

Great hotel, really friendly and good service by all staff who were very helpful. A sociable place too as guests chatted over a glass of wine early evening. I'd also mention the comfy bed and lovely pillows so a good night's sleep.

I've stayed at The Parker Guest House numerous times over many years (even before the second house was acquired). It's been great to see how popular the place has become (especially with the Google crowd who took all the good rooms). This trip was for four nights in the middle of a business trip. This is a peaceful place to... More

The Parker Guest House was incredibly beautiful and elegant, friendly and very comfortable. I was in San Francisco celebrating my 60th birthday with my kids who live in the city - staying at the Parker Guest House was an awesome treat to myself! The grounds of the Parker Guest House were lush and gorgeous. The house itself is beautiful, with... More

We were slightly undecided on this one as it was quite pricey and we could get better deals in larger 4/5 star hotels nearer the city centre. However, wanting something more "personal" we stuck with it. The buildings are utterly charming and have been decorated in keeping with their age. The room was spacious and comfortable with a good size... More

My wife and I stayed here and we're made to feel extremely welcome. Great facilities, great staff and a great location to step out in to the city from. That said, the best restaurants and diners were all in he neighbourhood!

A century-old , beautiful and elegant mansion in every detail. The breakfast is carefully prepared by the hosts and among them the adorable Scott. Perfect location in the heart of Noe Valley and Castro. People friendly: Gay, Straight and Children! This place make the experience of this city even more amazing 🙌🏼

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.

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.
