This is a lovely place to stay in a great location - everything is nearby and walkable with some great bars and eateries on the doorstep. The B&B is a small cosy place with immaculately clean rooms (something very important to me). The proprietor couldn't be more helpful and even orders in your choice of fresh bread and pastries every... More

I recently stayed in the Sondheim room and it was absolutely wonderful. Being on a work trip, it was nice to come back to a colorful, relaxing place that felt like home. Reinhold, the host, was very warm and welcoming. The B&B is walking distance from a ton of cute coffee shops and restaurants. Overall, Encore is very conveniently located... More

Dear Joana. You made my day with your wonderful review, especially by mentioning the aesthetics of Encore. Usually Bed and Breakfasts are associated with antiques and knick knack, so I was nearly insulted when even friends asked where are you shopping for antiques. We hope you will be able to revisit and hopefully have a longer business trip! More

I had a great time here! Only a few minutes walk through a quiet and safe neighbourhood to the T (orange line at Backbay or green line at Prudential), bus connection right at the corner. So very convenient to get around. Nice and large rooms all with private bath, Very well maintained and clean. You can choose from a menu... More

This is the first time we stayed in a B & B in Boston and I was not sure if I would like it. It was so much better than I imagined. You get to stay where the people of Boston live in a beautiful Brownstone. The bed and room were very nice with Aveda toiletries (nice touch). Reinhold (the... More

Charming host, personalized service, very comfortable room, super thick bath towels, delicious breakfast with several choices, great neighborhood with lots to enjoy nearby or inexpensive Uber ride to other Boston sights -- and more reasonable cost than chain hotels. Highly recommend for a unique and pampered guest experience.

We stayed here in 2008 and decided we'd stay here again. It was again a delight. The location is great for restaurants, cafes etc. It's a lovely location and great to stay in a real community rather than in big hotel. Reinhold is as welcoming as ever and the Bernstein room was perfectly comfortable. We enjoyed our breakfasts in the... More

Fantastic south Boston historic B&B. Clean quite, easy walk to downtown and Fenway. Located in a tree lined, quite residential street with lots of restaurants near by. Lots of stairs, but very manageable for us (in our late 50"s). Light continental breakfast served each morning with fresh baking...take the sticky bun over the German fitness bread ha ha... I had...

We've stayed at Encore twice now and we'd not want to stay anywhere else in Boston. Johnny - the housesitter while the owners were on vacation themselves - did an excellent job making us feel welcomed and preparing breakfast for us. Great job! Breakfast is served on one table that you share with other guests. While we love getting to... More

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.
