We really enjoyed our stay here. It was a clean, safe and comfortable. If you enjoy pretending you are local, it's a great place to be.
There is a street of eateries, wine bars and a coin laundry within 250m of the door which is handy for a traveller.
The stairs are a feature to me in this architecture but might be a little much for an older person.
We will b back

Dear Carmel. Of course our favorite line of your review is "we will be back!" Thank you for your effort to write this favorable review, which eloquently writes about the neighborhood we are a part off.

We were very luck to find Encore B&B and stay there on the Sunday and Monday of the Boston Marathon. The location can't be beat. The room was excellent, comfortable and quiet. Our host, Reinhold was attentive and helpful throughout our stay. I would highly recommend Encore to anyone planning a visit to Boston.

Dear Dan. You were indeed lucky that we were able to accommodate you, due to a cancellation.
Marathon weekend is one of the busiest in time, but it didn't happen for the first time, that a guest had to cancel due to an injury, which did allow him to run.

This is a great location being in between both the green and silver T lines and the neighbourhood itself is beautiful to walk around. Encore is a lovely b&b but for us it just lacked that little bit extra that we had experienced in another b&b in the same area previously. While there was nothing wrong with our stay (room was really nice etc) it just seemed to us that the running of the place is becoming a little much for the owners. Our breakfast orders were incorrect both mornings but the owner was just too nice for us say anything and there were one or two other minor things. Would we stay here again?, yes but it would be second or third choice

Dear Paul. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am personally very sorry that my service didn't meet your expectations. While it was definitely my fault on the first day of your visit, on the second day I unfortunately had to substitute one item, because it wasn't available at the bakery. If this would happen repeatedly, we definitely would let our guests know about it. Again I am very sorry that 2 days in a row I couldn't provide outstanding service. I definitely would appreciate the chance to be your second or third choice to proof that I could do better.

We found B&B on Trip Advisor and we also visited the Encore B&B website.
While reserving, we received by Mr Reinhold Mahler detailed indications about how to reach the place from the Logan airport.
The arrival was perfect.
The place looked exactly like we had seen on the web site: a very beautiful house located in a very beautiful place.
The house is beautiful outside and inside: rooms, kitchen counter, breakfast corner, from which you can have a pleasant view of the street downstairs.
We booked the Albee room, our favourite: it’s wonderful!!!
Everything is perfectly organized: in the room you find a breakfast form, to be filled with one’s choices and put on the kitchen counter in the evening for the next day: in the morning you will find your personal breakfast menu served; the choice is very rich of options.
Mr Reinhold is very kind and efficient, he is always present and very helpful, with full respect of everyone’s privacy. He helped us to find tickets for the Boston Symphony Hall, where we could listen to an important Concerto, he made lots of phone calls to the museums in order to guarantee us schedules and prices.
Last but not least, the place is very clean and safe.
We were there from March 27th to March 30th.
We absolutely recommend the Encore B&B as an ideal accommodation for a visit to Boston.
M from Italy

Room Tip: The location is very quiet and beautiful. We choosed the Albee room (last floor, red brick walls, terrace), after having seen the pictures on the website; for us the Albee is the best one, but also the others look very beautiful!

Dear M. We are absolutely delighted that we contributed to an excellent first time visit to Boston. I was happy to help you find last minute tickets for Symphony Hall, but I would encourage all our future guests to let us know about potential visits to the BSO, to allow us to reserve tickets in advance. Of course we hope that some time you might come back to Boston, but of course there are a lot of places in the world to experience. Thank you again for an outstanding review.

Location in the heart of the city is great. Rooms are very nice and comfortable. The owners go out go there way to help in every possible way. This is where I will stay when in Boston with out any doubt.

Room Tip: All are perfect
