Our family of 5 from Switzerland stayed at the Gilded Lily at the end of July 2012. There are so many nice things to say about it...It is perfectly located in Boston for those visiting - mostly everything there is to see in the city is reachable by foot (or subway). The house has been beautifully renovated and the two rooms we rented on the same floor were spacious, charming and stylishly furnished - the beds were so so comfortable. There were real nice touches of class everywhere down to the guest products in the bathrooms. The arrangement with the shared kitchen between the rooms worked perfectly. Everything we needed was there. Last but not least there was Jim who was so welcoming and helpful on our arrival - this is a very special place. There is no doubt that we will go back there on our next visit to this great city.
