Located in a beautiful brownstone building on a charming, quiet street, the Gilded Lily is a refreshing oasis. Just a short walk to shops, restaurants and the T, you can easily explore the city, return to your elegantly appointed room and relax at the end of the day. My husband and I have stayed in Boston many times, but the... More

After staying in hotels in the centre of town previous to spending a couple of days in Boston, our stay in this gorgeous, comfortable and well-equipped B&B was a delight. Although close to everything, including great little restaurants, we felt as though we were in a local neighbourhood rather than a big city. Being the beginning of May, the blossoms... More

I was in Boston for a conference and then some sight-seeing. Staying at this B&B was a great experience. The room was furnished beautifully and very clean. There is a fully-functional kitchen for guests which I found very convenient, and which was stocked with coffee and breakfast items. The neighborhood was very centrally located with subway stops nearby and many... More

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...

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.
