This B&B is located fairly close to the Metro (T), probably 6 to 8 blocks away. There are stairs leading to the front door and more to get to the rooms. The stairway is a bit narrow and the stairs a bit steep, but there is a handrail for those who need stability. The room we stayed in was quite... More

I was traveling alone for business and discovered this wonderful little bed and breakfast. I'm so glad I did; it made for a really lovely overnight in Boston. Reinhold, one of the proprietors, is kind and accommodating. After a last-minute snafu involving a gift card that almost left me without a place to stay for the night (fault was entirely... More

We stayed 3 nights at Encore B&B this week and loved it! The neighborhood can't be beat - it's just a couple of blocks to great restaurants and all the fun of the South End.

Encore is located in Boston's South End, full of excellent restaurants and bars, plus a few shops, and it's walking distance to Back Bay, the Boston Public Library and other sights in that area.

I stayed here while in Boston at a conference. Reinhold, the host, is very kind and accommodating with many top restaurant tips. The space itself is wonderfully designed and very clean. The neighbourhood has a number of amenities and is within walking distance of many sights. It is also easily accessible by transit. I would highly recommend this space!!
