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.

My wife and I stayed at the Encore Bed and Breakfast this past October and had a wonderful experience. Reinhold was very accommodating to all our needs and requests.

We stayed three nights at Encore in the Sondheim room in October 2014 and really enjoyed our stay. Reinhold was a great host - welcoming us, ensuring we were happy and giving us good tips on what to do. The room itself was great - a nice size with a large bed (quite firm). Felt at home.

We just returned from a wonderful stay at Encore Bed and Breakfast in Boston. The location is amazing - we love to walk through neighborhoods and did so for our entire visit. Our daughter is attending Northeastern University and it is very conveniently located to that. The accommodations are wonderful and Rheinhold, the host is a pleasure. Highly recommended!
