We were on tour playing concerts throughout the mid-west and while in Cincinnati we had the good fortune to be put up at Clifton House. What an amazing place! I honestly can't think of anything bad to say about it. The rooms were beautiful, the breakfast was delicious, and Nancy is the consummate hostess. Big recommendation for this place. Jim...

We visit Cincinnati at least once a year, and ever since we stayed at Clifton House, it has become our "home". Nancy is one of the best-innkeepers ever. She is gracious, charming, helpful, wonderfully hospitable. The location is perfect, quiet, beautiful neighborhood, yet close to everything. Nancy´s guests are always very interesting, breakfast innovative and delicious. Can´t stop praising Nancy...

I took my wife here as a getaway trip to celebrate our first child coming in the next few months. We were both very pleased with the room and the entire house itself. We stayed in the "romantic room" It was very comfortable and has its own bathroom attached. The hospitality was outstanding. Nancy, the owner of the house, was...

Yes, the Clifton House is a beautiful house, built around 1908. Yes, it's very convenient to the university, and centrally located in Cincinnati. Yes, it's near the Ludlow Avenue gaslight district. The breakfast chefs are from Cincinnati State's culinary institute. The owner, Nancy Niehaus, is friendly and knowledgeable. There's a billiard table, a workout room, and a library. None of...

My husband and I ventured to Cincinnati to visit a family member who is currently teaching at UC. She mentioned this lovely b & b that she walks by on her way to Ludlow which is the charming central street in the Gaslight District. We had a lovely 2 night stay and there is not one thing we would have...

I decided to treat myself to a 1st-time visit to Cincy after a week of business in Indy. I was debating whether to stay in the Gaslight District or downtown, and having chose the former, I had a really fantastic stay. First, the neighborhood is suburban and so has ample street parking and a couple minutes' walk to Ludlow St....

We just stayed here last weekend. The house is beautiful, and Nancy was very welcoming, pleasant and nice. I will say after staying at a few bed and breakfasts I was a little disappointed with a few things. The first was the cleanliness of our room. It was extremely dusty and our entire family kept sneezing all night. My son...

I recently had my wedding reception at the Clifton House. My new husband and the wedding party spent the night and could not have asked for a better experience. It started with me looking for an intimate place for the reception and some perks for our out of town guests to make the wedding process easy for them. When I...

This is a 1900 built B&B within walking distance to great restaurants, colleges and the Gaslight district. The room was nicely appointed and clean. The breakfasts prepared by Chef Brian were perfect and delicious. Each morning brought something tasty to experience. Nancy is a delightful host providing answers to any questions, history on the house and wine and treats at...

This is a terrific bed and breakfast located close to UC in a quiet neighborhood. Homey and spacious bedrooms rooms, beautifully decorated and comfortable common areas (library, living room, dining room), a breezy porch and terrific service. Nancy provides brownies and wine (or soda) at 5 every day and a fabulous breakfast. This is our regular place when visiting our...
