“Amazing breakfast, wonderful host!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2012

We will definetely come back to the Encore! What a perfect place to stay! Tastefully furnished rooms, quiet, nice beds, but the amazing breakfast is the absolute highlight! And Reinhold is such a nice, friendly and helpful person! We really felt perfectly hosted and so comfortale! Also the shared breakfast table is a nice occasion to chat with other guests. Always again!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Bernstein room towards the garden which we could recommend!

, Owner at Encore Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review, 16 July 2012
We are really thrilled to hear, that our guest found the breakfast at Encore amazing, especially after we got complaints, that we don't serve hot breakfast. We never advertise anything else then a continental breakfast! Most of the credit for breakfast at Encore has to go to Flour, our neighborhood bakery and we offer 12 different items to choose from. I, of course enjoy the nice things mentioned about me - we all are trying hard to make our guests feel comfortable.

My partner and i had a great time staying here for our recent trip to Boston. I was there for my graduation and the accommodations were excellent. The hosts were friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the elegant Robbins room. Loved this room, as it was spacious with windows overlooking a tree-lined street. Also, the Kitchen and shared fridge were right outside the door. Since I am on a special diet, this was most helpful. These guys are great. Be aware that there is a 3 flight walk up to the top floor, so if stairs area problem, be warned. Quieter room are in the back, but i quite enjoyed our street view.

I have now stayed at Encore twice - once over a long weekend in Boston and once during an overnight business trip. For either, this is the perfect place to stay: comfortable, reasonably priced, and in an unbeatable location. Reinhold is charming and accommodating, the rooms are handsome, and I'll be returning to Encore and recommending it to friends.

Every year my husband and I stay at this totally lovely B and B for our anniversary. The Albee Room is especially nice because it has a balcony where we sip a glass of wine before going to dinner. A nook with cushioned window seat, lamp and table is cozy if the weather doesn't cooperate for the balcony. The bathroom is ample in size and well stocked with tasteful amenities. The host, Reinhold, is charming ... and provides a delicious breakfast in the small dining area where it's fun chatting with other guests.

Room Tip: Albee Room has a nice balcony overlooking neighboring roof decks.

As informed folk likely know, Boston's a PAINFULLY expensive and underserved town for hotel rooms, so Encore B&B is a particular gem. I'm an ex Boston-native who long recommended Encore to visiting friends, and now avail myself of it when I need to be in the city overnight. Rates are a colossal bargain for Boston, rooms are clean and stylish, reflecting host Reinhold's career as an architect and architectural professor (with the themes of the rooms reflecting host David's work as a theatrical impresario/director of great note in Boston - you'll be particularly fortunate if one of his plays is up while enjoying your stay - theatre's right down the street and they never fail to entertain and engage). I'm particulary given to the Bernstein Room with its Wassily chairs, but all of them are lovely. This is an old townhouse, renovated to combine living quarters for the owners plus the sleek intimate B&B and a lovely garden - yes, there are stairs, but that's the very nature of the South End, the nation's largest surviving contiguous Victorian neighborhood of attached townhouses, likewise, these are compact and efficient rooms - if you want an elevator and a sprawling suite, there are big chain hotels in town, but be prepared to pay 3x+ the room price. For us mere mortals, the Encore is a godsend! Breakfast pastries from Flour Bakery (INCREDIBLE place in itself) are a particularly heavenly touch, and one can walk to any number of excellent restaurants in the South End or Back Bay. Best of all, this really FEELS like one is staying in the echt Boston - not some faceless corporate hive. Three cheers for the Encore!

Room Tip: This is an urban neighborhood, rooms at the back may be slightly quieter and overlook a lovely garde...
