We had a fantastic stay at Gryphon house, the staff was very attentive and the room was spacious and very comfortable. We will absolutely stay again!
Alfredo, us2 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
OK, would rather have spent my money elsewhere...
It was OK. I enjoyed the breakfast choices. When we arrived, the clerk put us in the wrong room and we said we'd move, no problem, but I ended up leaving my gloves and hat in the first room. The next guests said they weren't there.. yeah, right. I hope they enjoy my nice warm gloves and hat.

Good 6.0
Well let me tell you all these 10/10 reviews are a fishy statistical anomaly. The Wi-Fi is slow and barely functional, the walls and ceilings are paper thin so you can hear footsteps in the room above you, there was a sign that said fire escape alarm will sound but led directly into another guest room, street noise was disturbing, no concentrator for the hairdryer, no license to serve food so no hot breakfast — not a Bed and Breakfast more like just a Bed..... This place was way overpriced and more like 4-5/10 on a good day so my advice is to find another option.

Can’t wait until our next stay!
The Gryphon House exceeded our expectations! Friendly, helpful staff, complimentary continental breakfast each morning, comfortable beds, spacious rooms, modern bath with soaking tub, and impeccable cleanliness. Great safe location and on site parking for only $20 a day! Close to Newbury Street shopping, Fenway Park, and art museums. We will definitely be returning when we’re back in Boston. Highly recommended! Many thanks for a lovely stay!

Delightful, Boston stay.
Charming brownstone. Exterior, like many browstones, is not remarkable (OK. the front is way cute), but the interior is a sheer delight of period pieces. Friendly staff. Very helpful. Festive, fun atmosphere. Will likely return.

Beautiful property!
Beautiful property right in the middle of all the Boston action, especially if you're in town to catch a Sox game.
Mark, us2 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
Excellent - would always recommend Gryphon House .
Do not be put off by the approach to the GH . Inside it is excellent . A very friendly and helpful reception staff . A lovely large and well equipped room .A good breakfast and well placed for going to all of the tourist attractions in Boston . Just a 10 minute walk away from Fenway Park for the baseball . Surprisingly quiet considering its location near a junction of main roads . The only small downside was the wifi was a bit slow in our room.
