We spent some days of our honeymoon at david and reinhold's lovely place. The service was more than high standard, it was personal, individual and discreet. if you're planing a honeymoon trip there you might also get surprised. Nothing left to say, a place that is absolutely worth the money. On our next trip (whenever this might be), we'll definitely... More

The Encore is a wonderful place to stay and I would thoroughly recommend it. Think more five star hotel than Bed and Breakfast. The rooms are stunning and are beautifully appointed and the neighbourhood is very upmarket. The breakfasts are awesome as they would say in the States served by Reinhold who is a great host. The Encore is also... More

We stayed at Encore for 5 nights in June, a really lovely B&B with great hosts. David and Reinhold are so friendly and welcoming. We stayed in the Robbins room, which was a lovely, spacious room. Overall, the property was really clean, well maintained and very comfortable. Encore is on a really nice street, a stones throw from Tremont Street,... More

Yes, we loved it, would stay again tomorrow (we wish)! With only three rooms we knew where we wanted to be and booked well in advance (9 months) on the Net and with helpful, informative emails from the Hosts. Chose the Albee Room, although we must say all rooms look great, and we enjoyed the balcony off our room -... More

We originally called another B&B but they were booked and they referred us to Encore. We are so glad they did! We arrived early in the morning of our first day there and made arrangements with Reinhold to drop our luggage off.

My husband and I stayed in 2 different rooms in the Encore. The rooms are nice and very clean. We especially liked the Albee room with the pvt balcony. The B&B is nicely decorated as well.

We stayed 2 nights in this lovely, historic building in the South End and enjoyed the Encore immensely. The location was perfect for us - quieter than staying at the main hotels downtown yet less than 10 minutes walk to the subway and Amtrak station and only a few more minutes to the Prudential Center and shops on Newbery and...

Staying in South End

Neighbourhood 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.
