We loved the location of the B&B. What others say about the cleanliness and charming rooms are all true. The only thing I would add is that if you don't know the city and are looking for someone to guide you, this is not the place to stay. We had a lot of trouble finding our way around the area...

I had to attend a tradeshow in Boston and decided to bring my wife. Was looking for something different than the normal hotel room. We found it at the Gilded Lily. Super clean, nicely detailed and very comfertable. Highly recommended.

Charming, very clean B&B with easy access to many Boston venues. I loved the beautiful wood floors, renovated bathroom and compact kitchen. It's important to remember that it is a walk-up so be prepared for some exercise! I would definitely stay there again in the future.

We really loved our stay at the Gilded Lily. Beautifully appointed with lovely sheets and towels. A nice kitchenette of the room provided our daily breakfast. Close to everything in boston with some great restaurants nearby.

One starts to relax the moment you enter The Gilded Lily threshold. The grand staircase invites you right up to the well appointed rooms. Beautiful, large windows allow natural light to fill the space and offer a delightful view to the neighborhood below. This fully restored B&B has thought of everything one could desire while away from home. It is... More

I stayed two nights and was very happy. My girlfriends and I occupied four rooms and we had everything we needed. Fabulous, quiet location, short walks to museums, shopping and chic restaurants, we didn't need to use a car or taxi for anything we wanted to do. Our B&B owner host, Jim, could not have been more hospitable, we all... More

You'll feel pampered at this B&B even though they don't serve you breakfast, since it's self-serve continental breakfast in a kitchenette room right off the bedrooms. The place has been lovingly restored to it's former beautiful state with much attention to detail. The rooms have a "grand old world" feel but they are up to date in comfort. Bed was... More
