This was my 3rd time staying at Encore and it was yet again a great stay. We stayed in the Bernstein room and it was quiet and wonderful. The neighborhood is in a great location to go anywhere in Boston and also has a great selection of restaurants.

We arrived late from the UK in the dark and we were tired. We were confronted firstly by a steep flight of steps and then an internal staircase, both of which were difficult with heavy suitcases. However the room (Bernstein) was ready and everything was as promised for our 4 night stay. We slept well in a very comfortable bed... More

Staying at Encore B&B was one of the most satisfying experiences I had when I decided to spend two nights to tour Boston. I was able to experience living in this beautiful neighborhood at South End and this charming apartment with tastefully designed interiors and relaxing ambience. The owner, Reinhold, was very accommodating and coordinated with me prior to and... More

Reinhold is a great host and delivers a delicious breakfast. The location is excellent as you can walk downtown in 20 minutes and also to the Fine arts museum and the Isabelle Gardner museum. Fenway park is a half hour walk for baseball. There are multiple eating locations close by. There is an economical laundromat just across the Main Street... More

Encore B&B is a perfect location to access all that Boston has to offer including all the big tourist must-do's but also some wonderful local bars and restaurants in Back Bay/South End Area. Our room was modern, comfortable, quiet and clean. Our hosts were delightful. I would certainly recommend and would stay again.

We were at the Encore for 3 nights, and after the first breakfast we were hooked: Wonderful pastries (lemon mint scones, sticky buns, croissants), fresh fruit and yogurt, and some of the best coffee I've ever had. The rooms are comfortable and have a modern-loft vibe. Everything was spotless. My room faced the street and there was some traffic noise,... More

Boston Back Bay lodging is ridiculously expensive but this was great for one night. Clean, quiet, modern, no frills, easy in-out, and breakfast was excellent if you like that sort of thing. Also convenient and price was very reasonable.
