My husband and I are big fans of Encore B & B and have stayed in the Bernstein Room perhaps five times in the past eight years. The neighborhood has changed over that period and is quite spiffy, though it retains its aged charm. Great restaurants in walking distance, easy access by the T or walking to museums and music...

My girlfriend and I stayed here while on a mini-vacation in Boston for the New Year. Reinhold is very nice, and willing to accommodate you with just about anything. The Albee Room is fantastic, with a nice view of the neighborhood from the balcony. The Orange Line T is a short walk away, there are all kinds of restaurants nearby... More

Dear guests. It was such a pleasure hosting you. I am still so disappointed that the coffeemaker didn't function the way it was supposed to, when you left in the early morning. Glad you didn't have the freezing temperatures that we have now during your visit. You should come for a visit during the summer - you will love it! More

I wish we could have stayed longer had our schedules allowed. The Sondheim room was very clean and comfortable. Good quality shower and bath accoutrements are always appreciated by those who pack just a little too light (like myself) and who then forget to bring the necessary accessories from home. One night is not enough time to really enjoy all... More

Dear Caitlin. Thank you again for choosing Encore for your weekend get away in the city and thank you for taking the time to review us. As you said, one night is not enough, but you are so relatively close by, that you always could come - may be for another birthday! More

Enjoyed a night at Encore & were delighted all round. Great location in a beautiful neighbourhood close to lots of restaurants yet easy enough to walk into town. The room was stylish (Eileen Gray table - not a usual B&B find in UK...) with wifi & lots of local restaurant information. Reinhold was charming & prepared an impeccable breakfast, with... More

Dear Kate. A short vacation in Mexico (Puerto Vallarta) of the Innkeepers caused the delay for a response to your fabulous review. It is especially appreciated since you only stayed one night with us.

I stayed here for one night after an interview at Tufts Medical Center. The room was clean, comfortable, and stylish, and the location was excellent. Reinhold was very accomodating when I had to leave early the next morning. Wish I could have stayed longer!

We had a wonderful 4 days in this beautiful city and central to that was the accommodation at Encore B & B. It is the perfect touring experience to spend the day enjoying the sights and then return to welcoming, very comfortable and spotless accommodation. It has all been said and we can add little but to endorse Reinhold as... More

It's always a pleasure to host Australian guest,especially when they come from Melbourne, because we can show them how easy it is in Boston to get the Charlie Card for use of public transportation as opposed to the Myki Card in Melbourne. However Melbourne has this great visitor service with the free tour bus that shows you the town. Guess... More

What a wonderful find the Encore B&B is! I had travelled to Boston to attend a conference at the Hynes Convention Center, which is within very easy walking distance. This was a great home away from home, in contrast to all the usual impersonal conference hotels. And you feel a part of real Boston too, as the B&B is in... More

Dear Michael. Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review.

We hope to be able to accommodate you again some time in the future. More
