Let me start off with the fact that I very rarely write reviews as I am very particular about quality, and wherever I stay or eat for that matter, should be nothing short of exquisite, otherwise what is the point. John and Joan are masters of their museum quality albeit accessible and unpretentious domain. I've already said exquisite once so... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and I can't say that we had a good time. We were two couples. The rooms had very original names but I must say that they were not very clean and quite dusty. The furniture was old and cracky without a tv set or a coffee machine in order to make a... More

I found hosts John and Joan warm, interesting, and helpful I enjoyed the space, breakfast, and the central location, from which I walked to various places in the city, caught a bus one day, and used BART. I'll gladly return and will recommend this B&B to others. A side note: I had a training that was 1.7 miles from the... More

Everything you read here is correct. John and Joan are hardworking and attentive hosts, with the instincts to put guests totally at their ease. Joan is a dab hand with eggs at breakfast (chèvre soufflé with poached strawberries, pancakes, scrambled with bacon) and the Tartine bread is to die for. Wonderful location in the Lower Height meant that the buzz... More

My wife and I had a delightful stay at The Parsonage this past February. The location was ideal for us as it was walking distance to SF Jazz and some excellent restaurants. The Parsonage is a stunningly beautiful, older house with very comfortable accommodations. We stayed in the Julia Morgan Room which, though a bit small was very quiet and... More

We spent three nights in this absolutely exquisite home crammed with antiques and beautifully restored rooms. John and Joan were gracious hosts and we enjoyed a full breakfast each day--they are wizards with eggs and souffles, with the added treat of toast made from bread by incredible artisan bakeshop Tartine. It's convenient to bus transportation and the up-and-coming Mission District.... More

We spent three nights at The Parsonage earlier this month. The owners were away, but we were made to feel extremely welcome by Manabu who was taking care of the place for them; he was warm and friendly, offered us great advice on where to go and what to do in San Francisco and further afield. He also cooked the... More

This hotel recalls the splendour of the nineteenth century with lots of antiques in a turn of the century terrace house. Although the website claims that it is open from 4.00pm, I had to wait a couple of hours on the doorstep until someone came to let me inn. The absence overseas may explain this slackness. The breakfasts were memorable,... More

If you go to San Francisco, stay at The Parsonage!! Strongly recommended because it adds something special to your trip. Everything was wonderful, the Victorian house, it's owners, Joan and John and the breakfasts they served us. John even made the most delicious breakfasts without gluten and lactose. Stay there, You will not regret it!

Believe the positive reviews! Great location, lovely hosts, and wonderful breakfasts. Most importantly to our family was the lovely friendly dog, and lots of little extras that make you feel welcome. It is in a safe area to take transit (highly recommend the Muni transit passes for the buses, cable cars and street cars), and great restaurants only three blocks... More
