Within walking distance of Symphony Hall, Newbury St and plenty of good restaurants. Big perk is having the availability of a parking spot but make sure you reserve it as there is on only 1 but 4 rooms - not difficult math.

Stayed here 2 nights and had a great time. The room was spacious and well decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with good quality food. The B&B is central and most points of interest are at walkable distance. Highly recommended.

Just a very short one night stopover here - instructions etc clear and informative. Room well furnished and super modern toilet/shower facilities. Shared, well stocked kitchen. James, the innkeeper was very helpful when we had to contact him. Location of B&B is excellent with lots to do and see within walking distance. I would give this five stars except that... More

We stayed here two nights- a family of 3 while in US on long term business and short-stay holiday combination. I would actually also recommend this hotel to single woman travelling to Boston alone. It is safe and sound and very convenient and quiet.

Stayed here 3 nights October, James has restored the building’s many original features beautifully. The Palor room was superb. The shared kitchen was well stocked, love the cakes! A reasonable walk to the City or Copley Sq. through pedestrian walk way. Bar on corner, 5 Horses was great for a beer or food. Some good restaurants within walking distance. Definitely... More

We stayed at the Gilded Lily for 2 nights in early October. We didn't actually meet James during our stay but communicated with him by email both before and during our stay and he was very responsive and helpful. The B&B is in a very nice, quiet, residential area, close to public transport and with a nice tavern at the... More

From the moment I made my reservation I sensed that this place was all about quality. The location is ideal, on a quiet tree-lined street next to a park and within short walking distance to the center of town and many excellent places to dine. The rooms are sober but stylishly elegant and the parlor rooms are very large. James,... More

The Gilded Lily is not a Bed and Breakfast. It is a building with four apartments for short term rent. The "Innkeeper" is really a rental agent, not an innkeeper. When we travel, which is frequently, we usually stay in B&B's rather than hotels because we enjoy the camaraderie and local knowledge of the Innkeeper, the specially made hot breakfast... More

My husband and I just completed a tour of New England, and we ended our trip with two days at the Gilded Lily. This was our second stay, as we booked the Parlor Room last year for our exploratory trip to Boston. Once specifically planned our final two days in Boston just to relax at the Gilded Lily and enjoy... More

We loved staying at The Gilded Lily. The location was within walking distance to transit, a variety of excellent restaurants and cafes, Symphony Hall, and shopping. Our room was tastefully decorated. Upon arrival James provided a personalized orientation to getting around the neighborhood and Boston in general. He took time to address our questions and offered us suggestions for dining... More
