Breakfast was fantastic, lots of fresh fruit and omelettes were offered. Jan is a wonderful host! He provided a helpful list of nearby bars and restaurants, perfect for a 1st time visitor to the area. Lunch at the nearby... More

Friends have stayed in several other rooms as well. Each room is nicely layed out, with all the necessities, very... More

My second time staying at the inn; the first was on vacation for a week with my partner in 2005. When I found I was coming back for business, I knew where I wanted to stay. The inn was convenient both to my business event downtown and to the heart of the Castro, just a few steps away. Literally the... More

Everything was really good. The location ist direcly in Castro. The Roam was very nice furnished and there were a wide offer of drinks for the guest. The staff were helpfuel all the time and the breakfast were tasty and all fresh made in a family-athmosphere. Even the parking was really easy in the street nearby-i did not expected this.

We loved our short stay in this very vibrant area of San Francisco. We started the day with freshly squeezed juice, a fresh fruit salad and fabulous cooked eggs (with salmon one morning, spinach another). There was another sweet cooked option (french toast, pancakes) but we did not try that preferring the eggs. Jan was a delightful host with helpful... More

We stay in the City on a regular basis to see rock shows or just to get away for a few days, but have never spent time in the Castro area. For my wife's birthday, we needed to visit a local business and were looking for a convenient place to stay, but choices were slim. The Inn was highly recommended,... More

We arrived late in the evening, but as promised our host had made arrangements to make sure we got settled in. The location was fantastic and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent with a wonderful large oval table making it easy to visit with other guests. It is located right next to public transportation and there... More

What a wonderful place to stay . I stayed with my daughter for 5 days in a quaint unit on Caselli street.. It was fantastic to both reside in a typical Victorian San Francisco house ,and amongst the locals. This helped us to feel like we were living in San Francisco for every single minute of the day. We were... 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.
