“Lovely B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Stayed for 3 nights. We had room 4, in the back, very quiet and convenient to the pool.
I did miss not having a TV, and I thought it would have been nice to have more variety for breakfast,
Especially when you are there for 3 days. Staff was very nice and friendly, good location, could walk to
Duvall street.

Stayed December 2012

We have stayed here on four different occasions over the last year and a half and always look forward to our visits. The rooms are comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. Frieda and Janie make you feel very welcome and special and the breakfasts are the best especially the waffles. Parking is easy and they can always provide great recommendations for places to have a great meal or an activity to enjoy.

We relaxed at La Pensione for three nights. Our group had three rooms. My room was #9 and had three sets of French doors leading to a gorgeous wrap around balcony. We enjoyed the beautiful Key West Christmas parade which runs directly in front of La Pensione from my balcony.

Cindy and Freida were absolutely amazing. Cindy made us 'love' waffles for breakfast and provided great advice on destinations, directions, restaurants and attractions. We can't speak highly enough of the professionalism and hospitality shown to us by Cindy and the team.

Cindy's brother is a fantastic musician and plays regularly on Duval Street. He's a true joy to watch.

We will definitely stay at La Pensione next time we are in Key West and plan on reserving all three upstairs balcony rooms.

Room Tip: Room 9 is the most requested; however, you can hear the street noise and want to make sure you close...

We recently stayed at La Pensione for 4 nights and couldn't have felt more welcome. Cindy and Frieda were friendly and helpful. It was like visiting old friends. The building was beautiful and close to everything. We had room 4 which has 2 double beds and opened onto the pool, perfect for a late night swim and one last cocktail. Breakfast was delicious and the coffee I could easily become addicted to. I will be back,

We stayed at La Pensione 3 nights, and had a wonderful visit. Cindy and Freida were both very hospitable and helpful. We had room 7, which opens onto the shared balcony. There was still quite a bit of street noise, and they do keep the balcony lights on all night for security, but we slept quite well, and the bed was nice and firm. Breakfast was lovely, what a nice place to stay!

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.
