We very much enjoyed our stay at La Pensione, the service was fabulous and in a good location to things we wanted to do.

This was our second time staying here. It is a beautiful home! Roland goes the extra mile, making sure your cooler has ice, straightening up your room. He even hung up cloths that were lying on the chair!! It is a bit of a walk to "main attractions", but well worth it! The pool is a nice bonus after a long day walking. It is a bit noisey right on Truman St, but you are in Key West for god sakes!!!! Love it & will be back next year!!

We loved staying at La Pensione Inn. It was in a great location, just a few blocks from Duval Street and close to all the attractions. This old Victorian house was just charming and the staff was very helpful with all our questions. Our room on the second floor was spacious and had everything we needed. The breakfast was perfect with just the right amount of options. No need for a huge breakfast when you have so many wonderful dining options in Key West. The only thing I would comment on is that the towels, although provided clean daily, did not smell clean. I would invest in a better laundry option.

This is a great little B and B. The staff is friendly and always available. The location is perfect, a short walk to Duval but quite at night. This place has become winter getaway must have.

We had stayed here twenty three years ago. Our room could use a good coat of paint but all in all we had a lovely few days. I would recommend it. We wish nick well. He is a A lovely young man

A cute little inn, located within walking distance to most attractions. Rooms were large and well appointed and staff was friendly and helpful. The location was prefect, not too noisy but easy walk to almost everything.

They were extremely gracious and helpful during our whole booking process and stay! We will definitely be staying here when we are back in Key West!! We absolutely loved everyone there, especially Ronaldo, who always made sure we had everything we needed and did a great job!!

After researching countless places to stay in Key West, I finally found a B&B that stood out from the rest: on-site parking, convenient to Duval Street and great free breakfast. After a long car ride to Key West, we were greeted by Roland and Nick. Roland promptly carried all of our suitcases into Room #5 and set up our suitcases on the suitcase holders - what service! The room had the A/C running as well as the ceiling fan so as we unpacked, we were very comfortable. The room already had a cooler filled with ice which was nice because we brought our own beverages and had a cool drink to relax. Nick was very helpful in telling us what was within walking distance and handed us lots of coupons for freebies. The heated pool is available for use 24 hours & towels are provided. All in all, it was a relaxing getaway and we would stay there again if we visited Key West.
4.8 on May 24, 2016
For those considering La Pensione - remember that there at no televisions. Excellent staff and onsite parking.
4.2 on May 02, 2016
We recently stayed in room 9 and would recommend this fun BnB to anyone spending some time in Key West. The managers were on site all of our visit and helped us with all of our questions and requests.
3.8 on April 11, 2016
Cindy at the desk was awesome. Efficient,warm,and fun. The other visitors added even more charm and warmth.One big interesting family. Lots of interesting people! First nite was good; second nite had louder traffic noises in bottom room #2. In fairness, we live in the country and have no nite noise.
4.2 on March 21, 2016
The place is very nicely located within a short walk of the pier, Duval Street and Southernmost point. The room was large, clean and very comfortable. The staff was friendly and went above and beyond. Would definitely recommend. Just note that there is no coffee maker, fridge, microwave or TV in the rooms.
4.4 on March 21, 2016
My significant other and I stayed at La Pensione Inn for 3 nights - it was excellent! The upkeep of the property and rooms was amazing. Balcony attached to the room, large bathroom and a reasonable complimentary breakfast. On-site pool was also great. Small, but hardly anyone used it so it was private. Special shout-out to one of the employees, Brandon, who was quite friendly and very helpful for things to do. Would absolutely return!
3.4 on March 13, 2016
Great location, great breakfast just a noisy location.

We had a great stay at La Pensione. Rooms were spacious and very clean. Our host, Cindy, couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. I recommend this place to couples who are looking for a relaxing stay in Key West!
4.8 on February 01, 2016
We stayed at the La Pensione Inn for the first time in January 2016. I have worked in the hospitality industry for many years and was pleasantly surprised by the accommodations. The associates who work at this property at very service oriented and willing to assist to make you stay the best possible! The location is within walking distance to all of the Key West major hot spots. The off-street parking is awesome! We loved this property and would easily return again and recommend it to our family and friends!
4.0 on February 01, 2016
The B&B was very nice and clean. It was a little expensive, but there was a major event in town that weekend. The only negative about the B&B was they lacked any comfortable inside area that several couples could meet and relax. Clearly they did a great job with what they had to work from, with a very old home.
4.6 on December 02, 2015
We stayed here in June Loved it, Well we loved it so much here headed back for the Christmas parade. Yes there are not a lot of frills but the service is great, and being an adult's only made it better. Lots of peace and quiet
3.4 on November 30, 2015
We rented room #5 and it was very spacious with a private bathroom. It smelled very good. The service was polite and very helpful. They provided us with a cooler with ice every morning. Breakfast was included and there was plenty of choices and everything was good. I found it a bit pricy but we could walk to many interesting places, i.e. Duval street, the beach, the west coast to see the sunset. Overall, GOOD!
2.8 on March 26, 2015
Don't expect a lot of amenities here but the room is clean and it's a few blocks from downtown. The breakfast was not hot, except for a waffle available on request. There is also a small pool, bikes, and a nice 2nd floor porch. Be prepared for bright exterior light and traffic noise at night (ear plugs help).
5 on March 23, 2015
We had a great time. Clean rooms. Classical historic home Which we enjoyed. We enjoyed the porch the most and the breakfast was nice. The rooms can be a bit noisy from the road, so if you're a light sleeper, don't pick a room that faces the main road. It didn't bother us much as we travel with a sound machine/white noise app. The staff we very nice and helpful, even gave us a discount after we arrived!! Parking is convenient, most things are within walking distance. We would definitely stay again
3.8 on February 28, 2015
We spent two days in Feb, nice location, quiet and beautiful. We loved the breakfast and really recommend LA PENSIONE .
4.4 on February 08, 2015
Had a great three day stay at La Pensione in Key West. Excellent staff - extremely helpful and friendly. Large rooms. We had a room with a shared balcony overlooking Truman - great at times but not so great when sleeping. Centrally located - about 5 blocks from Duval. Very friendly breakfast setting - Ana and Cindy were great. Roland cleans and really helped make our trip great with island tips.
4.8 on January 20, 2015
Staff very welcoming! Wonderful breakfasts! Staff "over the top" friendly and positive about this B&B. Best room cleaning service ever!
4.4 on December 21, 2014
Cindy was key to making our stay enjoyable. She made reservations, suggestions, and wonderful waffles for breakfast. The communal table fostered friendliness and sharing. Comfortable bed.
4.6 on December 09, 2014
This was our first time staying at a B&B in Key West and what a treat. Cindy is the Innkeeper, Roland is the housekeeper and they made us feel right at home. We stayed in room #7, it had a nice king bed, and offered a shared balcony to enjoy...And enjoy we did. The only downside to the room is the morning sunshine, but you cannot complain about sunshine in Key West! Breakfast was made to order each morning, coolers were available since they don't offer refrigerators in the room. But each day Roland refilled them. A plus is NO TELEVISIONS in the room. We'd go back there in a flash!
5 on June 27, 2014
La Pensione couldn't have been a better fit for our group. We LOVED every minute we spent there. The staff is AMAZING and the B&B itself was quaint and lovely. I would HIGHLY recommend this establishment to couples and groups. It's close enough to all the fun without being right in the middle of all the noise and craziness. You really can't go wrong choosing La Pensione!
4.4 on June 23, 2014
We would definitely stay there again. Such nice people.

Nothing compares to a commitment to excellence, which the owners have certainly made. We had a flawless stay, the cheerful morning greeting by either Anna or Cindy asking if we wanted waffles or coffee always made me smile. Roland saw to it that we had fresh ice daily. The location is superb for getting around Key West. I really can't wait to see them all again and just be lazy! J.G.M

Great place and great people! Anna and Christie were such sweet and fun people to greet us every morning. It was nice and quiet, very relaxing. Walking distance to Duval Street. Only down could be there are no televisions in the bedrooms, if that doesn't bother you you're set! Would definitely stay here again!
5 on May 16, 2014
The Staff at La Pensione are very accommodating throughout out entire stay. The recommendations for places to eat and things to do were very much appreciated. The housekeeping staff was amazing, everyday our clothes were folded and the room was cleaned top notch. The location is ideal for any traveler, walking distance to everything but far enough away to not get disturbed from the Duval Street craziness. We will be booking at La Pensione in the future.
4.2 on May 09, 2014
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The B&B is in a good location just three blocks from Duval and almost everything is within walking distance. Parking is available but it's a bit tight so don't drive your SUV!

My husband and I are just returning from our 3 night trip to Key West, I had a Bed and Breakfast gift card to use for a 2 night Premium Room stay and we added one additional night to make it a 3 night trip. Our first night we stayed in room 2, and the plan was for us to be moved to the Premium Room #8 for our 2nd and 3rd nights. When we entered the room there was a strong odor of a strange room spray. We left the door open quite a while to help it air out. The ceiling fans were very dirty, the bedding was thin and very outdated. No decoration to the room at all and no Televisions. Four walls and a bed is how I would describe it. That night we had a lot of trouble sleeping due to the high volume of traffic on Truman, ambulances, fire and scooters all night until about 4am. At breakfast the next morning the food was just average, fruit in a bowl and waffle mix sitting out since 8 am. The Inn keeper asked my husband how he took his coffee, and he said black. She responded with "Just like your women right? You know what they say right?" So unprofessional. Then as a housekeeper walked through she smacked him on the rear end. We spent the day out and about around the beach and came back to the Inn to change for dinner. We swapped keys for our "premium room" and walked in to the exact same room as #2. Very strong room spray smell, Dirty ceiling fans, no TV, same awful coverlet on the bed, bare walls. I did get a shower and saw mold on the baseboard as I stepped out. My husband and I were so disgusted that after dinner we went and booked a room at a hotel. The rest of our stay was wonderful.
5 on April 24, 2014
Cindy and Roland where awesome! Our room was so clean and Cindy made us feel like we were home instead if just visiting. We will definitely be back and I would recommend La Pensione to anyone. Thanks a bunch Cindy! Glenda Griffin And Kelly Wilson
4.6 on April 22, 2014
We had an exceptional stay at the LaPensione B&B in April 2014. Cindy and her staff made sure we were treated like royalty! Our room was cleaned everyday with fresh linens daily. We would definitely book this B&B again during our stay in Key West!!

4.8 on March 07, 2014
We've been to Key West many times and this b&b has been the best. The room was large and clean, the grounds are lovely but the staff and service are outstanding. We plan to return as soon as possible. The location was perfect for us, near enough to Duval, but just far enough to give us the quiet, relaxed vacation we were seeking.
4.6 on March 06, 2014
La Pensione is a beautiful place to stay with excellent service. Cindy is a most gracious host and will do everything she can to assure that you have a wonderful stay. From the time she prepares your waffles in the morning to the times she makes dinner reservations, helps you with directions and what to see to giving you discount drink cards for any number of bars and restaurants, she is always on her game. Having breakfast on the porch of this beautifully restored home and time spent at their pool makes for a very memorable stay. I would highly recommend it.
5 on March 04, 2014
La Pensione was more than expected! It is a perfect spot, the establishment is clean and comfortable. The owners and staff were so attentive and friendly that we did not want to leave. Highly recommended.

A cozy place to be near most Key West attractions. Excellent restaurants nearby. Ask the very helpful staff for recommendations. Try the waffles!
4.2 on January 18, 2014
Very nice older B&B close to everything we wanted to do. The staff was terrific and bent over backwards to help my wife and I prepare and for our beach wedding. I could not have asked more from the staff. The Dining was pretty average for a Continental Breakfast. They will make you a waffle and it is fine, but you are in Key West, I recommend going to one of the dozens of excellent restaurants instead of eating in.
4.4 on January 02, 2014
This was our first visit to Key West and the ambience at La Pensione was "key" to our satisfaction with our trip. The staff was very accommodating and gracious, and made us feel right at home. We wished we could have stayed longer.

4.2 on December 04, 2013
We travel a lot to Key West as we live near Miami and this is the first time staying at La Pensione and it exceeded our expectations. The staff was one of the friendlier staffs that I've encountered. (Note to the owner...your staff are GEMS. Take good care of them. :)) Cindy is awesome. She is so friendly and accommodating as is the house keeper (I believe his name is Roland). We had a service dog with us and when he cleaned our room, he made sure that the dog had towels for a bed and also folded any clothes that were left out. He also emptied the water out of our cooler and put in fresh ice. You just can't fine this kind of service like that anymore unless you stay at a 5 star hotel. It was clean and conveniently located. Very charming. I also loved that it was adult only. It has the best breakfast as well. Most Inns only offer bagels and danishes but they offered waffles and lots of fresh fruit among other things.. If you are traveling to Key West, I urge you to stay. They also have free parking which is also hard to find at most Inns in KW. If I had to say anything negative it would be that it is located on a very busy street, Truman Ave/US. 1. I prefer quieter streets to walk my dog, however, we heard no noise during the night from the street so I would stay there again and again. And it's surrounding streets are quieter so it was all good. Kudos La Pensione!!
4.2 on December 01, 2013
This was one of the best B & B experiences. Cindy, our host went above and beyond...thank you for such a warm welcome, all the helpful information. It was you who made our stay a most memorable one.

4.2 on September 10, 2013
Cindy was awesome at making us feel very welcome. Roland was amazing cleaning our room. I have never experienced anyone like Roland before. He folded our dirty cloths and placed them neatly on our bed. Exceptional service.
3.8 on August 08, 2013
Staff was very friendly, and rooms were very clean. Did not care for the breakfast at all - the dining area was not air conditioned at all, so in the summer months you are hot and sweaty before your day even begins. Also, breakfast is the same every day, and not very impressive - dry waffles (seriously dry), bagels, cereal and fruit. Location is a good walk from the heart of everything, but it was nice to be away from the crowds and noise. The bedrooms are all air conditioned and temperature is individually controlled. The entire house was spotless, and the staff was very, very accommodating. If you don't care much about breakfast, in the cooler months this place would be awesome.
4.2 on August 06, 2013
Pleasant quite place, clean room and good breakfast
4.6 on July 09, 2013
The staff at La Pensione were fabulous - so friendly and accommodating. The house is just gorgeous - the antiquity has been preserved nicely, with upgraded amenities. They gave us a cooler for the beach, along with beach chairs to use. We had a lovely room that opened to the upper balcony. We went downstairs in the morning to get coffee and a light breakfast, and brought it up to the balcony to enjoy while we watched the neighborhood "goings-on" below. Would highly recommend, and will definitely stay there when back in Key West.

We really enjoyed our stay at La Pensione, we got held up in Miami and didn't arrive in Key West unitl 8:30pm but we called ahead and they told us where to find our key and everything was set up waiting for us just as she said. Breakfast was simple but more than enough to start our day, and we were 2 blocks from Duval street so we were able to leave the car and walk everywhere. They gave us lots of coupons to local bars and restaurants and they were all great spots. We will definitly come back here agian. wonderful experience.
3.4 on March 27, 2013
La Pensione Inn B&B was just what my husband and I were looking for on our visit to Key West. We wanted someplace where we could park the car and be able to walk to points of interest. Truman Ave. can be a bit noisy for rooms that are facing the street. We were in #8 which faced the parking lot/pool area- not bad. Very enjoyable stay. Owners very friendly and rooms very clean.

The inn was in a perfect location, a short walk to everything. We stayed in room 7 which has access to the balcony, but does not directly overlook the road, so it was not too noisy. It was very clean. Breakfast was simple, but there were many options. Cindy was super nice! I would definitely stay there again.
4.6 on January 16, 2013
We really loved our short weekend at La Pensione Inn. It was SO close to everything and they even rent out bikes for your convenience. Breakfast was great and the staff was very friendly. Only complaint was that it is on a main street and the street noise can be loud (one day it was, one day it wasn't). Despite that though, I would definitely stay here on my next trip to Key West.
3.6 on December 28, 2012
Good location, nice quiet room in the back. Off street parking, but can walk to Duvall street. Good breakfast, but a bit more variety would be welcome when you stay for more than one day. very nice friendly staff. I did miss not having a TV in my room.

La Pensione is a very well kept bed and breakfast. The staff is extremely personable and approachable. They handled all of our questions and concerns.....especially Cindy. They truly made you feel like a family while you were there. The location is very convenient to everything. The room was very pretty. The only downfall was the bed. The bed and pillows were very hard and made it very difficult to sleep. If you like very firm beds and pillows, would love this place. Besides the bed, could not complain at all about the La Pensione!

My wife and I stayed here for our 15 year anniversary and it was great. The place has an old time charm and the employees were all very friendly and helpful. The location is prime and is close enough to all the Key West action, yet far enough away to be quiet at night. All the other guests we met were very friendly too. I suggest renting bikes to get around Key West which they have here on site. If you want a great place to stay that is reasonably priced...stay at La Pensione!

Lovely B&B. The manager Cindy was outstanding and made us feel right at home. Offered to make reservations, gave us off the beaten path recommendations. We were in one of the larger uppser balcony rooms upstairs (really nice), but keep in mind that the rooms facing Truman (a main drag) tend to be a bit noisy. Coolers and towels are available as well. Would visit again.

We would stay here again and can't wait to visit Key West again!!!

This is NOT a big-time attitude facility catering to the pretentious big-city elite. This is a low-keyed, friendly, and completely laid-back environment-- exactly what the rest of us need when looking for a few days "away from it all" in the South Florida sunshine. The staff could not be more cordial. The guests respect each others' privacy but always have interesting stories to share when people are ready to chat. There is always a diverse crowd (this IS Key West), there is on-site parking, and the saner half of Duval Street is minutes away from your front door. What is not to like? Just don't tell anyone, because we want to go back and enjoy the quietude, and once you visit , so will you.

Good location. Rooms didn't look like photos on their website - disappointing. Weird, strong, smell when we got to the room - had to air it out. Some of the inn keepers were better than others. When one heard that we had booked a sunset cruise for during our stay, she complained that it was not through her and explained that she receives commission. They have coolers, beach chairs and a beach umbrella for guest use.

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time staying at La Pensione Inn. Cindy, our host, was wonderful and so eager to help us with anything we needed. She gave us restaurant advice (when Yelp didn't cut it) and helped us rent bikes right at the inn, which was very convenient. Our room had a superb balcony and was clean. The inn is downtown and is walking distance to everything. I wish it were a little closer to the Duval St. area but the extra few minutes walk isn't that bad. Other than that, everything was great.

La Pensione turned out to be a wonderful, pleasant place of respite in the middle of Old Town. We were not more than 1/2 mile from anything that we wanted to visit, and in the middle of an interesting neighborhood with many historic homes. Our room was very large with comfortable beds and a nice view of the yard and swimming pool. The staff were very kind and willing to make suggestions for things to do. Breakfast was enough to get us going, and the quiet swimming pool was a wonderful break in our busy schedule. We will return to La Pensione!

I wasn't impressesd with the La Pensione Inn B&B. The rooms need a major update and the bathroom was tiny. The ceiling fan in the bathroom looks as if it hadn't been dusted in years!

Being in Key West in February is always pleasant. La Pensione is near Duval St where all the action is. But Truman Ave is really US 1 so there is a lot of traffic including Harleys all night. The room was very large with a nice balcony. We would have liked a TV; the furniture was adequate but nothing fancy. The pool area is very nice and having a vending machine was helpful. Breakfast was continental and sufficient. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. For Key West the room rate was acceptable. An attractive B&B but we would have liked a TV. Ed & Karen Mitchell

The main advantage to this property is it's closeness to "old town". You can walk to Duval Street and all the party places. The facility really needs some updating. The personnel were friendly and helpful and if you are looking for a "no frills" place to stay with easy access to old town than you will be happy. It's a little pricy for what you get however so don't expect a romantic getaway type of B&B.

Stayed for 5 nights at la Pensione and enjoyed it very much. We stayed in room 8, which has access to the second floor porch which was very nice! The Inn is about 3 blocks from Duval and 5 blocks to the Marina which was not an issue for us. La Pension is right on Truman which has a fair amount of traffic, so it can be noisy at times. It didn't bother us since we like the sounds of the city. Overall a very nice stay.

My stay at La Pensione was a good one. Great location for walking everywhere. The room was very clean and spacious, the pool sparkling, and the common areas comfy, clean and inviting. Breakfast was healthy and ample. Main drawback - our room was in the front and at times noisy ( highway ONE). Helpful, friendly, Staff made it all worthwhile and very pleasant! Didn't miss TELEVISION at all but could have used a fridge and a microwave.

I did a great deal of research after having La Pensione' suggested to me. For the money, it was equal to or better than many other properties. As you would expect, the staff had good recommendations for eateries, of which there are many. We used the on site bikes to travel everywhere. Our flight out wasn't until late in the afternoon, but we used the bikes for a final lunch jaunt and were able to shower after checking out earlier. The only negative is that the B & B fronts Truman (US 1) so it is noisy in room 9. However, that should not keep you from experiencing the exceptional hospitality of La Pensione'.
4.2 on December 06, 2011
We had very pleasant stay in La Pensione Inn B&B. Staf was friendly and competent. Its location is close to the downtown and parking is available on its premises, which is a great advantage. There are no TV sets in rooms, which is rather surprising. There is no dining in this B&B, hence the above rating for dining should be ignored. We can recommend it.

We had a great time here--only one problem. They had the hardest pillows I have ever slept on in my life---very uncomfortable!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did not sleep well. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ---change the pillows. Other than that everything and everyone were great.

Found this on the Internet, so we were a little leary, but it proved to be a great find. Super location. We left the car and were able to walk or bike everywhere on the island. Staff was friendly & helpful. We'll stay again when return to Key West.

A wonderful little nugget in Key West! Centrally located which allows you to go easily to Duval and Mallory Square or the other direction to the beaches. The rooms are quaint with a romantic wraparound balcony to have morning coffee or an evening cocktail. The breakfast is limited but good and the staff is very friendly, informative, and helpful. I've stayed twice and will definitely return!

Had a very good stay, location is pretty good, rooms are big, simple yet filling breakfast in the morning was nice. Staff was very friendly and was calling us by our names within the second day. We had scooters and could get to all the major attractions within minutes. The front room #9 was very nice with big balcony but the roosters in the morning will wake you up early. Good value and would stay here again.

It was our home away from home. Meeting new people at breakfast (the waffles were delicious!) and then sitting on the upstairs wraparound porch watching traffic were the highlights of our trip since it rained the entire weekend. The weather did not keep us indoors and when we came back drenched, they gave us towels to dry ourselves. (We should have borrowed the umbrellas they offered before we left). The rooms were quiet and absolutely, impeccably clean. We will not have to search the internet again when we return to Key West. We have recommended La Pensione Inn to everyone we meet. Not one complaint. Perfect!

This B & B is just wonderful! The owners treat you like family. It feels like they are old friends. They are very accommodating. We were pulling our new little teardrop trailer and they were making arrangements for parking it months before we even arrived. The setting couldn't be more beautiful, the rooms couldn't be cleaner, the pool couldn't be cozier. The morning breakfast was hearty. The conversation was great. I urge you to make this your go-to place when you want to relax in Key West. --- Barb and Phil Jenkins

The Inn met my expecatations as far as cleanliness, comfort and food (continental breakfast). Parking was limited but we knew this beforehand. Pool was very warm, maybe a little too warm for the weather (heat indexes greater than 95 degrees everyday). The Inn was conveniently located and within walking distance to many things! The Innkeeper was wonderful and very helpful with directions and tour planning. Will definitely return!

The B & B staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They made dinner and activities reservations for us, provided directions, maps, and made some suggestions. The onsite bike rental was very convenient. The best part was that we were able to shower after check out in a private bathroom by the pool. It was nice to be able to clean up after a hot day in the keys before boarding a plane.
4.2 on July 08, 2011
We enjoyed this B&B very much. It is only a few blocks from all the attractions on & off Duval Street. We could walk everywhere. Love that! After shopping and seeing the sights we relaxed by the pool. Already planning our next trip.

We stayed in room 7 that has a bay window and double doors to the balcony and we loved the decor and how clean the room was. The AC was nice and cold and the beds were comfy. We had no tv but that made the experience even better...who needs to watch tv when there's so much to see and do in the Keys. Breakfast was delicious! I loved the fresh fruit and waffles every morning. I would highly recommend this Inn to anyone. I know we will definately be back.

A great B&B right in the middle of most locations, walking distance to all sites on Key West, but quiet enough where you don't here the noise at night.

We had a great four year anniversary here at La Pensione Inn, I loved the location and the Inn itself was beautifully kept and very romantic. It felt like we were staying at a friends home. The Inn keeper was super helpful, she even delivered a surprise bottle of chamapagne for the occasion. It was close enough to the action of Key West but far enough to enjoy the serenity of this beautiful inn. We had a great time, the waffles were amazing!!!

We recently spent 3 nights at La Pensione and couldn't have enjoyed it more. It is a very nice, uncomplicated place that makes you feel at home. Garry was very helpful with tips around town and fixing reservations for outings. Jamie made a lovely breakfast each morning and was had very good suggestions for activities. We also got to meet Bud, which was a real highlite for us. We would strongly recommend this Inn.

Stayed at La Pensione Inn from January 10 thru 14. Our room #4 was large and comfortable. The inn was within walking distance to many good restaurants and stores. They also rent bikes right at the inn and that is a nice feature. It was too cool to go in the pool but we enjoyed sitting in the sun. Breakfast each morning was good with homemade waffles, fresh fruit, coffee. Freda, the inn keeper, is wonderful. She can answer any of your questions and is extremely friendly and helpful. Looking forward to staying again in the future.

I made reservations about 10 days before our arrival. We stayed 4 nights, December 29th, 2010, through January 2nd, 2011. Advertised continental breakfast was provided -- we found it odd that there were no juices offered. Room had louvered shutters that blocked any sunlight; made it look & feel less appealing. Convenient location, though being on the main road into town had its drawbacks with Harleys, trucks, buses, etc., gping back and forth. Staff was friendly and helpful. Pool is very small; could be a good relief in the hotter months. Unexpected complimentary bottle of champagne provided on New Year's Eve

Even though it was raining and cold, our stay was very pleasant. The Pensione was exactly as described on their website. Our room was large and very clean but a bit cold as there was no heat.

Price was below comparable B&Bs in Key West, and the location was excellent. No television or phones in the room. DId not use the pool as we were out and touring most of the time we were there.

We were celebrating our 1 year anniversary and the Inn was recommended to us by some friends. What a disappointment. Their website doesn't specify that they serve continental breakfast not the traditional breakfast you'd expect at a b&b. We had to go out for breakfast every morning. The rooms were very spartan. However, the staff was very friendly. We've stayed at many b&bs and they usually have coffee or tea available for their guests during the day and night; most of them also offer complimentary wine in the evening or in the rooms. At 7:00 p.m. when the office closed, the only drink service was the vending machine. We stayed in Room 9 (the most requested room according to the Inn keeper) and it faces Truman Street which can be quite noisy at night. If you're looking for the attention to detail of a traditional b&b this Inn will disappoint you. At $148.00 a night, you would get more from a traditional hotel that serves a true continental breakfast.

La Pensione Inn was really a good decision! It was friendly, near the center (5 minutes with bike) we had bikes, a pool, international guests, really good breakfast, it was quiet, peacefull - we stayed one night more as we planned and I really would take it a second time again! We got towels, even for the pool and a free parking place for the car directly behind the house.

My wife and I vacationed in Key West for the second time to celebrate our 2nd anniversary and my wife's birthday. The staff (especially Freda) was extremely friendly and always helpful. The breakfast was well above average, although it was difficult for us to leave our comfortable bed before 10 am. We've stayed at comparable b&b's on the island before and this is right up with the best of them. We would highly recommend this beautiful and charming home.

La Pensione Inn was all we were hoping it would be and more. Me and my boyfriend stayed for a few days in the room next to the pool. The pool is open 24/7 and we were in it most of our stay, when we weren't out on our rental bikes (that we rented at La Pensione Inn). The room was beautiful, the staff very friendly and genuine, and we felt absolutely at home from the first minute we came. I would recommend this to anybody that want a romantic getaway...

Location: easy to find when accessing the island, 10mins walking distance from Duval st., secure parking, quiet & clean rooms, pool & nice veranda for the breakfast outside. Staff: friendly and personal atmosphere, providing inspiration for dining and local attractions the local people find interesting besides all the tourist staff - thanks for that !

La Pensione was a nice B&B. I would have preferred more variety at breakfast, hot water in the bathroom sink and a TV in the room. But I did appreciate their wireless internet access. Unfortunately it was too cold to use the pool. The people were very friendly and it was very convenient to have on-site parking plus it was in walking distance of Duvall St.
