“Beautiful stay!”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

This bed and breakfast was fantastic. The owners are wonderfully down to earth and helpful people! The inn is located to easy on and off access to highways and was so easy to find and the parking accessibility allowed us to not worry about meters or high parking prices in Boston.
It was a lovely half mile walk to and from Fenway Park and we will definitely be visiting again!

Thank you!

Outstanding facility and staff. I arrived very early, and was able to take a shower and change downstairs. All the front desk folks were extremely helpful, pleasant and fun. Breakfast was plentiful and in charming surrounds. Cabs are close-by in Kenmore Square, and arrive within 5 minutes if called. Victoria Room was very large and comfortable and did not offend my allergies. Next time I will go for a river view, though.

Room Tip: The river view looked great when I passed the open doors, though the Victoria was great. I saw the...

Stayed at end of April while attending a conference at the Hynes Convention Center. I knew the area well having gone to BU for college (many years ago :-). About 10-15min walking to the Hynes, Green Line T (Kenmore) very close by.

Quiet, beautiful brownstone with great decor. Tuscany room was unexpectedly large and comfortable -- I've stayed in *far* smaller. The gas fireplace was great, and I enjoyed sipping tea in front of it after an early AM run by the Charles River. Didn't have a car with me, but off-street parking would be a major plus for anyone driving in. WiFi worked easily and was fast. Tons of restaurants and other options within a 5-20 minute walk.

A bit pricey, but that's Boston for you -- it was cheaper than the conference hotels anyhow. Only "minus" was that the breakfast was quite forgettable, but I knew this when I made the reservation ("continental"). It also meant I felt less guilty when I missed it because of early-AM conference obligations. Still, given the amazing breakfasts I've had at some B&Bs, it might have been nice...

I'd definitely stay there again!

The Gryphon House is a beautifully decorated brownstone on a quiet street steps from Kenmore Square and Fenway. We stayed in the Tuscany suite which was furnished very comfortably with attention to small detail.Kitchenette enabled us to make coffee or tea whenever we liked. The bathroom was huge and elegantly appointed. We were on a college visit with our son who unfortunately had to sleep on an air bed since the room only had one queen, but we were aware of the bed situation when the reservation was made. I would highly recommend this establishment for couples however. Staff was very friendly and breakfast offered sufficient choices. There is no elevator so for some the winding stairs may be a problem. Would return again.

We had a 2 night stay end of March that lived up to our expectations. Found doing a search of B&B's in Boston. Great location, very nice staff, clean and beautiful room. Definitely worth a return visit.

Room Tip: We stayed in Aerie. Room was as expected from the website.
