We really enjoyed our stay at the Gilded Lily and James advice, looking forward to coming back for a longer period. Every room has a different colored atmosphere, and things have been done with care. Julie

My husband and I stayed there because it was near our son's apartment. It is clean, beautifully decorated and in a wonderful neighborhood. The young man who helped us was very gracious and friendly. We felt well cared for. There is a delicious, award-winning bakery nearby.

The Gilded Lily is centrally located to all the sites of the city. It's clean and beautifully decorated. The owner, James, was extremely helpful in telling us what to see and how to get there. The Gilded Lily was within walking distance of everything we wanted to see, from the Freedom Trail to Fenway Park. We used Uber once to... More

What we love: taken care of with lots of privacy. We arrived, everything was clean, quiet, ready, beautiful, and we went about our business very independently. Somewhat residential neighborhood with great restaurants. Cool vibe.

My girlfriend and I visited the Gilded Lily and loved it. It was clean, the rooms are beautiful, and it was convenient to all the major tourist destinations. We loved the neighborhood and James was very helpful in hightlighting the must sees. We highly recommend The Gilded Lily and will visit again.

Such an awesome place. The building was gorgeous. The location is breathtaking. The room, bathroom, kitchen and hallways were very clean. Stayed here for one night to go to a concert at Fenway, which was only a short walk away through what we found to be an amazing area of Boston. I would recommend The Gilded Lily to anyone wanting...

This is one of the nicest B&B's we have ever stayed at. It is well located in the South End of Boston, on a quiet street, with Render Coffee shop around the corner. There are markets, dry cleaners and even a Blo hair Bar a few blocks away. It is very close to Northeastern University. James is a wonderful person... More

This place was a very nice abode for an evening. I wish we had been able to enjoy it longer, but as it was, we nearly missed checkout. Late arrival was no problem, but the 4 floor walkup was tough with a lot of luggage. Be advised - pack light!

We loved this place. Great room, comfortable, spotless, relaxing and lovely to stay in a B and B rather than a hotel. James made sure everything ran smoothly. The self serve breakfast was perfect, free wi-fi (as it should be- NY take note!). Lovely location with great restaurants and pubs nearby and a short walk to the gallery and shops.... More

This is a very beautiful bed and breakfast. It is nicely decorated and well keeped. Everything looks like new and is always very clean. It is very well located in a very beautiful and quiet neighbor. There is a train station near by. James is very friendly as well as the clean lady. They respect a lot your privacy, so... More
