Encore B&B is in a lovely historical district, the South End, in Boston in a 5 story brick row house. The rooms are modern in style, the bathrooms new and clean and the beds are comfortable. Reinhold is an excellent host and can answer any Boston questions. They are located near many terrific restaurants and within walking distance of public... More

This was a very pleasant stay. The house is very New England-quaint. A lot of the comforts of a hotel without the impersonal nature of one. Plus, Reinhold makes perfect soft-boiled eggs, seven minutes in the water!

Encore is decorated with a skilled eye for color, design, and function, minus the frou-frou that plagues so many B&Bs. It is well-located in the restaurant-rich South End close to transportation connections. The innkeeper, Reinhold, is flawless in his hospitality, with thoughtful touches like sturdy umbrellas at the door, gluten-free breakfast options, and accurate, specific directions to the inn and...

We are happy that this review got finally published, because we are especially proud of what is expressed in the first paragraph. Thank you so much for taking the time to write it.

We stayed in the Sondheim room for 4 days. The B&B is in a quiet neighborhood, near the T and other public transportation. Easy to get around, great neighborhood feel at the many local restaurants. We had great food at B&G's, Toro, Masa. We had great breakfasts at Encore. The pastries were great from Flour Bakery and Reinhold was an... More

Great stay, much nicer than in an impersonal hotel, in a lovely building in an attractive part of the city. I recommend Hiscock Park just a few steps away. Having a decent radio and a quiet room and fresh pastries also helped. I will recommend it to everyone I know.

Dear Allison. Sorry for the late response to your great review. I am glad you choose Encore and were able to discover that it is really close to the Hynes Convention Center. I personally love that you mention the decent radio (Bang Olufsen), a must for me when I get to a hotel/B&B and most often a big disappointment! Looking... More

Location was very good. It was in a safe neighborhood that you felt comfortable walking around even at night. And it was close to Prudential, Boylston St, Fenway and MFA. Staff was very friendly and professional. Room was spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay at Encore.

I came up for college tours with my daughter. We loved the location, the modern look of the rooms, the cleanliness and of course the wonderful breakfast. Our host met us in the evening, we were able to park behind the building, and the price was very reasonable. A great find in the city, very welcoming!

Staying in South End

Neighborhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
