“Fantastic stay, would recommend......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I have just stayed here for 3 nights on my first visit to Key West. I would recommend this hotel, rooms are quirky (in a good way) and clean and tidy. Very comfortable beds and quaility linens etc. Nice touch with chocolates and water provided each evening as part of the service. The continental breakfast was a good range of food and the staff all very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Only slight negitive was the road noise, our room was on the Truman Ave side and it was quite noisey. Didn't cause a problem but worth mentioning. It wouldn't stop me booking here again or recommending and giving it 5 stars.

Room Tip: Would ask if possible to have a room not directly on Truman Ave.

Ahh, what more good things can be said about the Truman Hotel that haven't been said already. It was just perfect for us. The vibe, pool, location, parking, breakfast at the pool, the brilliant decor inside and out! A jewel in the Key West crown.

My husband and I originally booked across the street at the Almond Tree Inn. They had some renovation issues and moved us over to the Truman Hotel. Because it was last minute they only had the one bedroom cottage available. We checked in Thursday and checked out Sunday. We had a great time and the hotel was sooo clean. Beautiful relaxing atmosphere, and beautiful pool. The breakfast provided each morning was plenty of food! We rented bikes that we locked up right outside, short 2 min ride to duval street, 10 min ride to Mallory Square. Subway and CVS right across the street. very easy and fast check in and check out. Highly recommend this hotel!

We loved our stay at this chic, modern hotel. The location is just perfect - two blocks from the madness that is Duval Street - a bike rental place right next door, and plenty of restaurants all within walking distance. The pool was gorgeous - just the right temperature and irresistible after a hard day's sightseeing.
We had a King room with a great bed and the large two person rain-head shower really felt like value for money.
We'll be coming back.

Have no complaints! Rooms were updated with modern decor, beds were comfy, staff was friendly. Only a block or two from duval street, no driving necessary. A little pricey, but worth the price. Would deffinately come back

We loved this boutique hotel in Key West - in fact this was the best bit about Key West, as we were slightly disappointed with Key West as a whole, more touristy than we were expecting and the beaches were far from great. However the hotel more than made up for it - great decor, very spacious room (we were upgraded to a honeymoon suite, room 303), with two big TVs, huge bathroom area with two big sinks, wet room with rainforest shower and power shower, lovely pool area with free fruit punch, continental buffet breakfast included, and close to the main streets yet very quiet at night. Would definitely recommend!

Being here for 2 nights.
Still surprised it is not categorised as proper hotel on trip advisor (just as B&B) - this is definitely a boutique hotel.
Perfect location, close enough to main amenities but far enough to guarantee you a very quiet and relaxing staying.
It's beautifully furnished - we staying in 303, massive bedroom top floor. It was just the two of us but you could have been a family and still find spare space in the bedroom. It's extremely clean and the bathroom is a plus with giant mirrors and an extremely comfortable shower.
Breakfast is essential and self service - more than enough for us - and you enjoy it around the pool.
Have not tried the pool but took a lot of pictures in the night as it looks lovely.
I would definitely recommend this place and hopefully return one day. Perfect if you are a couple, you want a quiet and classy hotel and you care about your privacy. This is the place you are looking for!
