We feel so lucky to have discovered the Encore, located in a residential area within walking distance to restaurants ,theaters, museums and the Boston Commons. The hosts are charming and the accomodations are excellent......clean, stylish and comfortable. The European style breakfast is just right and served in a sun lit nook overlooking a street lined with fashionable brownstones, maple trees... More

My wife & I stayed at Encore for 4 days & we had a GREAT stay! We love that it is centrally located but not in the middle of the city. So many wonderful shops in the area with everything in walking distance. The owner, Reinholt, is a very friendly man & will take care of his guests to ensure... More

We enjoyed walking around the neighbourhood of South End. The B&B is also close to the sub-way which is a fast and easy way to see Boston. Nice, quiet comfortable room and a good breakfast. Friendly and helpful host.

Reinhold was super attentive from the very first email and very helpful with anything we need. The location is perfect, the neighborhood is quiet for a good night sleep and moreover is 5min. walk from Prudential center (you can go anywhere walking!). Besides the house is very clean and the decoration very nice. It was at once intimate and private... More

Dear Sara. We are so happy that you found our B&B. It was so amazing that you all had visited our artist friends work in the Marrha area in Morocco; so there was lots to talk about during breakfast. We are really pleased that you had a pleasant stay at encore and hopefully we see you again next year. More

Stayed here end of March for a business trip. I'm so glad that I opted for staying at Encore instead of one of the standard hotels, because at Encore, I felt to be really in the heart of Boston. The B & B is located in a historical neighborhood, very typical architecture for Boston and lots of really nice restaurants... More

We are really happy that you found the time to write this fabulous review. Sorry I didn't respond to your private message - it got lost in the process of setting up a new computer. Spring has finally arrived in Boston and last week we hosted guests for the Boston Marathon. Our front yard got a long awaited uplift and... More

Like a March 2015 review, we also chose Encore as being close to Symphony Hall. Reinhold was so friendly and helpful, the room was spacious and clean, transport links are good but it's also a good point to walk from. The breakfast is sourced from a local bakery, you make your own choice in advance, and it's delicious. Much enjoyed.

Dear guest. A review from a Tripadvisor Senior Contributor is always very welcome. Thank you for taking the time to help is keep our TA ranking. A lot of our guests think we have so many reviews and there isn't a lot to add. They are not aware that TA's emphasis is on newer reviews and I assume that is... More

Reinhold and David have made this B and B an exceptional base for both business and travel excursions to Boston. This was my third visit, a business trip. I've been here in the dead of winter and this time as the spring was just getting underway. The rooms are clean, modern and very comfortable. Breakfast with Reinhold and other guests... More

Dear Ken. We always are especially pleased when a repeat visitor goes though the effort to write a review on Tripadvisor, because this site puts a lot of emphasis and recent reviews - quite understandably!

Stayed for 2 nights in March 2015 while in town for a BSO performance. What a perfect little B&B. Ideal location, easy walk to fabulous restaurants. Clean. Delightful host. Lovely little breakfast nook. Very intimate, personal feel to the place. Really, just an ideal little spot. This will absolutely be our first choice for future Boston visits.
