From the front desk staff carrying my bags up from the curb, to their guided tour of the beautiful restoration of the home, to the lovely guest rooms, to the staff's incredibly helpful attitude no matter what the request - this place has it all. The patio and yard would be a great way to wind down at the end...

Do you start with the good stuff or the less good stuff? Nice digs! Seriously, the house is lovely. The yard is lovely and relaxing. They have lemon trees! They also have some nice Rosemary bushes and other herbalicious things in the yard. The wine social was a huge success, we were very social. The bed was nice, linens were...

We especially loved the cozy fireplace. The room was great, good bed, refreshed every day... everything we needed. Good connections to the metro / tram network... Nice and friendly people. Thanks for the Ferrero Rocher everyday, Belgian chocolates for Belgians. You guys have an eye for detail :)

The team at Parker Guest House were fabulous. Every aspect of our stay was made easier due to their fantastic can do attitude. Breakfast was excellent and the complimentary drinks at 5.30-6.30 is an excellent way to meet other travellers. The guys even saved our skin when there was a mix up with our dates (my fault) and they fixed...

The Parker Is always a nice place to stay while in the city. Friendly, attentive Service, comfortable rooms. They also provide a Steam Sauna for relaxing after a long walk in the City. Good breakfast buffet and the "social wine hour from 5-7pm" seales the bond.

It doesn't matter how nice a facility is if the hosts don't seem genuinely interested in the welfare and happiness of the guests. This B&B meets that standard above all I've experienced nationally or internationally. The men and women who work here are amazingly kind and receptive to making one's stay the best. If you are the parents or siblings,...

This was our third stay. Big rooms, good breakfast, great service. The sunny and clean PGH is located near Mission Dolores Park, so it's close to shops and restaurants on Valencia and the Mission (a few blocks away). It's on a Muni Line, but they have off street parking as well. The rooms are top notch clean and meticulously decorated....

Planned this trip in a day for an unexpected trip to SF and was so lucky they had availability. This was a great location close to family with hilly, but easy walk to shopping and the park. Any problems were quickly resolved by the friendliest staff. I look forward to staying there again!

I always enjoy returning to the Parker Guest House. I've stayed there many times over the past 10 years, and always find it relaxing and welcoming. The staff greets me like an old friend, and that makes it very special.

A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation.
