La Pensione Inn

809 Truman Avenue , Key West, 33040 USA (Show map)

About

La Pensione, a Key West Bed and Breakfast is located in the heart of Old Town Key West and is a favorite Guesthouse for many of our repeat clients. Key West, the southernmost point in the continental United States, is an oasis like no other. Set at the end of the Florida's archipelago, Key West's tropical landscape is dotted with stately frame residences, trimmed with scrolls of gingerbread. The island is a visual feast with the mélange of Bahamian, New England and Latin influences that characterize it's famed century-old architecture. La Pensione, a grand Classic Revival mansion, dates from Key West's Victorian Age. Built in 1891 as the private residence of Walter S. Lightbourn, the Vice-President of the Cortez Cigar Company, the elegant 2 1/2 story home on Rocky Road, (later Division Street and still later Truman Avenue), stands today as a tribute to the island's vast cigar making empire. Sun lovers will enjoy the peaceful seclusion of the inn's sparkling pool and lounge deck. Or when you're yearning for a little excitement, Key West's legendary Duval Street is just steps away.

Great getaway

5 on August 27, 2018

The owners were very friendly, helpful. I thought because there wasn’t a TV that would be a problem, but it only made the weekend so much better. The breakfast was just right....we would definitely return and recommend to others!

First time

5 on August 15, 2018

This was our first time staying in the Keys and Mamma G was wonderful. She made us feel so at home. Not only would we recommend La Pensione to anybody wanting to get away but we will be staying there the next time we go to the Keyes!!


3 Night Stay

4.2 on August 06, 2018

Comfortable rooms, extremely nice staff. They were kind enough to accommodate us and keep our luggage on our last day while we toured the city more rather than being 8 hours early for our flight. The cleaning staff did more than any place i've ever seen, they even carried a cooler with ice to our room without request. Nice pool and bikes to rent. The only thing that could improve would be breakfast in my opinion. Delicious fresh fruits everyday with cereal and breads, your basic continental breakfast but was not a deal breaker!


The best hospitality in the keys!

Gina, aka Momma G was so accommodating and helpful. She greeted us with open arms and explained all the amenities available as well as offered great suggestions. She even made us a reservation at a great restaurant for dinner and gave us great options for nightlife. Breakfast was great as well as the relaxed and natural ambiance of the house. We will definitely book here again.


Relaxing Get-a-way

4.6 on July 18, 2018

We stayed a couple nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. We could relax in the room or by the pool if we wanted to. We could walk to Duvall Street or take a $5 taxi almost anywhere we wanted to go. The staff was helpful and very clean informative about the house or things to do in Key West. Definitely would recommend this place to others.


Peaceful

My husband and I stayed for a weekend and overall is was nice. The a/c unit rattled the entire time, cleaning person forgot shampoo, conditioner and soap in the bathroom, so we purchase our own from the CVS which is around the corner and they did not have water, it had to be purchase from the vending machine. The pool was amazing, the Inn Keeper was friendly, great location and nice and quiet.


Great Surprise

3.8 on May 17, 2018

We booked a last minute weekend trip to Key West, and didn't really have any expectations of getting a great B&B. La Pensione is very cute, in a great location, our room was wonderful & so was the staff. Had a perfect weekend!


Best place to stay!

5 on April 09, 2018

We loved every second of our stay. The staff is phenomenal. So friendly and helpful! The breakfast was really good and felt like you were eating at home and not a hotel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The pool area is well maintained and water was amazing. The other accommodations like coolers, ice, towels, etc were incredible to have available. I loved everything about this place. Will definitely be staying again!!


Nice B&B

3.0 on April 07, 2018

Decent value. Advertised as "TV free", but there is one at the breakfast table. (I am a rare TV hater.) The building is old and therefore not very soundproof in the front. So there are lots of street noises if you get a front room. But the balcony was really nice to sit out on so it was a trade off. Light sleepers won't sleep well here. Pool is small but nice. Staff were over the top friendly. Specifically, Nick was great. I'd stay again.
