“Very pleasant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

The B&B is nice, clean, situed in an hisotoric building very charmant, the rooms are large.
The breakfast is delicious, mainly the waffles and including bread, fruits, juice.
La Pensione is well located, only a few minutes by foot from the main street of Key West, Duval Street.
Parking is easy and the staff is so helpful.
I really recomend!

Stayed for just a couple of days september 2012.
It had a excellent room, bikes for rental and a little tiny pool.
Only bad side of it is we had to be quiet after 10pm and close the door on the way out.
Breakfeast was allright with fruits, pankake, bagels and juice but we couldnt serve ourselves.

If you appreciate the older coastal home then you will enjoy your stay here. This charming B and B was overflowing with hospitality and warmth from the first phone call. We were able to lounge at the pool or walk to the shops and restaurants down the street. Our last day was topped off with Cindy's 'love' waffles. We can't wait to go back!

We stayed in room number 9 great room with two french doors that lead out to a wrap around balcony. Great breakfast and the staff was very friendly. They even called me when I left my Kindle there. I was able to get it back before we left Key West. I cannot not say enough good things about La Pensione. Internet was fast and the bed was very comfortable. Room number 9 is great but keep in mind that it does face Truman Ave (US 1) so you will hear the traffic at night. Also, the balcony lights are on so you have a "night light". Great ceiling fans make the room nice and cool. I will stay there again for sure!

We loved our stay at “la pensione”. Host Cindy made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was good, especially the waffles. Pool was big enough for a good swim. Rooms were very spacious and clean. There was no TV in the room but that made our stay even more relaxing. Wifi reception in the room was good. Big plus was the fact that we could rent bikes at “la pensione”. Location is fine; close to attractions but not in a very busy street. Next time when we visit Key West we will certainly want to stay in “la pensione” again.

Greetings from your Dutch friends, Cindy!

A wonderful 9- room mansion/in with wonderfuly charm and perfect location a few blocks off Duval Street. Our room was very spacious (#9) with access to the wrap around balcony just outside one of 3 french doors complete with table and chairs. Kick pack with a glass of wine or your breakfast and people watch. This was truly a nice place to begin or end your day. Only draw back and certainly not anything against the inn or staff is that during the holiday weekend the traffic was a little noisier than normal as well as the rooster that liked to begin his day around 4:30 -7:00 or so. Got to love Key West! So if you want a little more peace and quiet, request one of the back of the house rooms. The staff is wonderful. Cindy and Frieda were both so gracious in tending to our needs and provided great recommendations on places to go. We loved the waffles everymorning! No need to venture out anywhere for breakfast (juice, coffee, fruit, bagels, cerial, hardboiled egga & waffles)--it was perfect. The pool area was nice, relaxing and secluded--I only wish we had taken more time to hang out there. You can always use just one more day in Key West. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks again ladies for making us feel welcome. We had a blast!

Room Tip: If you want a little more peace and quiet, request one of the rooms toward back of house

We had a wonderful time staying at La Pensione for a long weekend! I have already recommended it to all of my friends and family. The service was absolutely outstanding and the amenities were wonderful. Loved the convenience of renting bikes right from the Inn and the fabulous location just a few blocks from Duval Street. Great for friends or a romantic getaway. Highly recommended!!
