“Gem right near Duval Street”
Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

Our room had a lovely contemporary design, with a huge shower in teh bathroom. Add to that a lovely pool, a clean, friendly atmosphere, a good Continental Breakfast, and an attentive staff who supplied us with two fresh bottles of water and a few pieces of chocolate every evening. And it is only a block and a half from Duval Street, in a great central location. We loved our stay in early February 2014.

Stayed February 2014, traveled as a couple

The Truman Hotel was the perfect place to stay for our Key West trip. Close to everything and exceptionally nice and hip. The pool and lounging area was super cool, and the room was very nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. I found my Key West hotel from now on.

The Truman Hotel was a great find in Key West. The location is perfect - you're within walking distance to Duval Street and many of the main attractions in old Key West. The rooms are beautiful and the pool is great. It is a smaller, boutique hotel so it has a nice intimate feeling to it. It is not the cheapest place to stay but definitely worth it!

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor are best. Try to avoid rooms that are facing the street - best if you can...

Had a great time at the Truman. It's super modern, very clean and in a great location. The staff was super helpful, especially since we showed up without a reservation on a Saturday afternoon. The pool is amazing. Great place to sit around and read or star gaze. The bathroom are fabulous and the bed was very comfortable. The Hotel is in an excellent location. You couldn't ask for more. Parking is included which is great. I highly recommend and look forward to staying there again!

Lovely hotel located within walking distance to everything in Key West. Love the pool and complimentary breakfast. The only draw back is one level of the two story does not have elevator access. But the other level does. Nice and Clean and very modern with glass tiled showers, beautiful comfortable patios. Will stay again!!!

Room Tip: Choose one with Elevator access for luggage!

Through my almost 20 years of traveling i have never been so disapointet in a hotel that was in this pricerange. We stayed for 1 night in yhe beginning of this year and paid around 400(!) dollars. The rooms are horribly decorated. The air con is so loud, there were maybe 10 kids screaming and playing in the pool untill late which made it impossible to hang out. There was also a sort of security door that banged from the ealry morning everytime someone passed through it.
When i pointed this out to the reception they just didnt bother. They were like " oh ok will send someone up later to check the AC" No apology, no nothing.

The hotel is clean. The hotel can probably be ok BUT when your treated in a bad way it doesnt matter. Walking around Key West later that day to find a new hotel we found so many more hotels that were so much nicer och better priced.
