A great place to stay in every way. Great location. Immaculate room. Quiet. Close to great bars and restaurants. Also very close to Back Bay train station. My son and I went to visit colleges. I love the neighborhood, quiet, safe and hip. Love the quick continental breakfast and the shared kitchenette.

We arrived here after a long drive from Washington, D.C. and we were so pleased to arrive at such a beautiful b&b. It's located on a quiet, pretty little street and is still very close to the metro station for easy access to the rest of the city. The room was very comfortable and spacious with a shared kitchenette which... More

My major complaint about this b&b is that I never discovered it before! I have visited Boston many times and this is the best! Located close to Back Bay, and a stone-throw from Mass. Av. T-stop, ease of access to downtown is such that you might just as well be downtown! The area is delightful, and - if you don't... More

Great location in a very walkable neighborhood and city. The loving restoration of this historic brownstone shows in every detail - complimented by modern comforts like great beds and baths. I like the kitchenette as opposed to a sit down breakfast. The rooms are spacious and bright and a great place to kick back after a day in Boston!

I have stayed many places during my travels to Boston but believe I've found my favorite. I chose The Gilded Lily not because it was a B&B (I usually prefer hotels) but because of it's close proximity to my son's home. What a pleasant surprise! This beautiful Brownstone on a tree-lined street is an architectural gem. Although it's more than... More

My husband and I have frequented many B&B's within the past but the Gilded Lily will remain in our top three list as a re-visit. It is a beautifully restored Brownstone from time past. We stayed in the Garden Room which is perfectly appointed with warm shades of neutral calming colors and tones, tons of natural sunlight fill the space,... More

The Gilded Lily is everything you want from a B&B. The only thing it does not have is the breakfast in the morning. The rooms are outstanding. One word to describe this place is "BEAUTIFUL"! The Gilded Lily is located in a residential area, that looks like it's out of a movie. We stayed in the Parlor Room on the... More

We spent 3 nights in this very beautiful home. The location is perfect for exploring Boston also 'cause it is close to the metro. We stayed in a room on the third floor very clean and quiet, bed very confortable. You have to share the use of the kitchenette with the other room on the floor (but we saw the... More

This was an excellent property and owner who immediately made us feel comfortable and at home. We loved the beautiful rooms! They were clean and well-appointed! The breakfast was good, having hot beverages available great for Boston in winter! We had 2 rooms on on lower level and shared the kitchen w brother and sister in-law. James gave us a... More

i recently spent 4 nights at The Gilded Lily and have only wonderful things to say about my visit. The room was nicely decorated, incredibly clean and very quiet. My son and daughter-in-law live in the South End and I am happy to have found my new home away from home at The Gilded Lily.
