Gave a lecture at BU last week, and they booked me into Gryphon House. Easy to get there from Logan airport: Silver Line bus to South Station,and T (subway) from there. Very easy, quick, and cheap. Gryphon House is small (8 rooms, I think) with friendly, low-key, helpful co-owner and staff. It is an old brownstone right at the edge... More

No matter where you have to be in Boston, the Gryphon House is the best place to stay! Centrally located, with a taste of the country right in the middle of the city, you will be pampered by warm, welcoming people (often the owners). The parlor is inviting, the rooms are beautiful, breakfast is delicious! The owners' personal touch is... More

Gryphon House was a delight. The house is a magnificent building decorated in Victorian/ Arts & Crafts style. There's a nice parlor downstairs for breakfast and relaxing. The rooms are huge and very well appointed, spotlessly clean with good beds. Although it's a block away from noisy Storrow Drive (and the beautiful Charles River beyond that), the street itself is...

We stayed here over the long Thanksgiving weekend for a family reunion. We reserved all eight rooms so it was like having our own house in Boston. We have stayed in many B&Bs and this ranks at the top. Teresa, Tara, Lauren and Sam were very responsive to our needs, the house itself is beautifully maintained, and all the rooms... More

This is our third visit to this beautiful Bed and Breakfast Inn. As always the hosts Teresa and Tara were so friendly and welcoming that we instantly felt at Home. On this trip we stayed in the beautiful Tuscany suite which was cosy and spotlessly clean. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts, providing tasty breakfast, maps, touring tips... More

The inn keepers were great and very helpful. The lobby had nice goodies and a keurig. The Inn was very clean and tastefully decorated. I would definitely stay here again. It was close to all major attractions and is in a safe neighborhood. You can just walk outside and go with no worries.

Absolutely beautiful bed and breakfast set in the lovely Back Bay area within walking distance to Boston University and Fenway Park. The building is charming inside and out, and our room had everything we could need, including a kitchenette. We stayed in the Tuscany room with a view of the parking lot & roads, but it was perfectly quiet inside... More

We arrived at 2 am, from a gruelling day at O'Hare. After informing them of our late arrival, our Sanctuary room was a welcome comfort. The staff went out of their way to assist with directions and transportation. The location, a few blocks from Fenway, was perfect for feeling the Boston vibe.

I've stayed at the Gryphon House twice now while visiting Northeastern University. The Inn is conveniently located near a subway station and only a short walk from Newbury Street. The rooms are very well appointed, clean, and comfortable. Front desk staff have been so helpful in calling taxis, giving tips on directions, etc. Breakfast is ample. The absolute only downfall...

In some 30 years of staying in inns and b&b's, this was likely our overall best experience. The rooms are very big and extremely comfortable.
