Encore Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 37 Boston B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We recently spent 3 nights at Encore B&B and had a great experience. Very good location, excellent restaurants, and a very comfortable, spacious room all made our stay memorable. Our host, Reinhold, was very accommodating and made sure all our needs were met. Though we checked out before breakfast time, Reinhold made coffee and served us breakfast before we departed. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Boston! I highly recommend this B&B.

Sarah and I have a lovely experience at Encore B&B. The room was delightful and we enjoyed the modern furnishings (Marcel Breuer Wassily chairs, for example). Car parking was very easy. Quiet and very comfortable. Breakfast was great. We very much enjoyed meeting Reinhold. Location in South End is perfect - we felt like we joined the neighborhood for a couple days. Highly recommended. We will always remember our weekend their fondly and we would absolutely come back.

Dear Elihu and Sarah. Thank you for making an effort to write this fabulous review. I am so happy that we found the time to talk after breakfast for everybody else was served and also thank for the hint for you book about the Prudential Center. I ordered it and it arrived in todays mail. Hopefully I will find the time to read it till your potential next visit. I am sure the South End has a few more things for you both to explore.

This lovely, Boston red stone B & B is close to the heart of the city and within walking distance of lots of good restaurants. Our room was beautifully and tastefully furnished and had its own balcony looking over the street. There was a good selection of continental breakfast foods and our hosts, Reinhold and David were absolutely charming.

Dear Karen. It sounds like you took advantage of our location close to Boston's "Restaurant Row". There is even a Food-Tour for the South End and we tried it out, but sine it's scheduled at lunchtime it can include only a limited range of restaurants and therefor doesn't really point out the wide range of choices you have in 5 -10 minute walking distance. Thank you for writing this review and the compliment on the furnishings of our rooms.

We stayed for five nights and were looked after really well. This started before we arrived as we had an email from Reinhold offering to book us a place for dinner on the evening we arrived.
The continental style breakfast were good and our hosts very helpful in giving good advice. Transport to the centre of Boston is good.
Highly recommended

We stayed at Encore for 3 nights. We found the location excellent and very much liked our room which was spacious and comfortable. We felt welcome, but unlike other guests have experienced were largely left to our own devices. Breakfast was pleasant enough but not special in our view. We also did not feel that the level of housekeeping was quite as sharp as it could have been, with glasses not cleaned and soap and water not replenished and for this don't feel able to rate Encore as very good, though average seems rather mean. All in all though it was good value for Boston and we enjoyed our time there - but are just not able to enthuse as much as other reviewers.

Dear guests. We are sorry that we didn't meet your expectations, which have been based on Tripadvisor reviews. We pointed out on this site before, that city ordinance doesn't allow us to cook a full breakfast and at no point have we claimed to do so. We offer our guests 16 different choices from Boston's best bakery and most of our guest are in deed happy with that choice. We do indeed provide bottled water at the arrival of our guests, but haven't advised our housekeeper to replenish water on a daily basis, but after your criticism of this fact we will change our policy immediately. It would have been nice if you would have brought this issue together with the issue of replenishing soap to my attention. The problem could have been resolved very quickly.

This was my second stay at Encore B and B. My enthusiasm for the place and for Reinhold and David's hospitality (and modest prices) remains very high. Each time I've visited as a party of one and was delighted to find myself included by hosts and guests alike. The diversity of guests (from around the world) as well as Reinhold's deep roots in the neighborhood are the kinds of intangibles that set this B and B apart from those I've visited in Boston and elsewhere.

Aside from amazing location, beautiful streets, there are lots of small places to dine or have coffee and engage with those living nearby. On this trip I went to the theater and to the public library (a surprising historical gem). Each day I retreated to my most excellent room in Encore and found a perfect balance between unique culture and a really comfortable, well kept space.

I will be returning to Encore without a doubt. My belief is that one has to learn how to mine the wonders of this place and the surrounding neighborhood. I can only hope that not too many discover this exemplary haven.

Room Tip: Be mindful of there being no elevator. The third floor rooms are quite nice but there is a climb to...

Dear Ken. We are really thankful, that you took the time out of your busy schedule to write this review. It's always important that repeat visitors are happy with their stay and that we met expectations. I am glad you were able to explore more of Boston and even had a chance to see a show. With your allowance we put you on the mailing list of Zeitgeist Stage that you will know, when David has a show running. But you might also put the BSO on your list of things to do when you are back in town.
Hope your remodeling project goes well and it will be don e soon!
