The Gilded Lilly, located in the impressive Brownstone building in South End is very good option for visiting Boston. Very conveniently located in the authentic surrounding, 5 minute walking to the subway station, this B&B has been our comfortable base for exploring the town.
We occupied the Parlour Room, sharing the kitchen with the neighbour Garden Room.
In the moment of booking we got very precise instruction about the arrival, entering the house and using all the facilities. This system is good for the tourists preferring to protect their privacy and being completely independent from the the housekeeper. However if you prefer every day contact and expect more assistance in the new place, there is rather no proper address for you.
In any case, the room we had, was absolutely perfect. Very tastefully restored , faultless clean and with specific touch.
The only one serious remark concerns the banal choice of breakfast assortments, which are stored in the fridge. Such a "plastic" frozen components do not match to this exceptional, chic place.
