My husband and I stayed here for two nights in September, in the Arch House, Room 4 (garden side). This hotel is delightful - a quiet, peaceful haven amidst the bustle of Key West. It is centrally located and provides an excellent base to explore Key West on foot; but offers utter tranquility after a day in the heat and... More

We stayed at the ICHH for 2 nights in July, 2006. As what most people have said in their reviews, yes this is a nice, quiet, peaceful and comfortable place to stay. We were in #17 of the island city house. It was big and spacious, plenty of room for the 3 of us (me, Mom and 10 year old... More

I always wanted to see Key West, despite friends saying how touristy it had become, and trusted my better judgement (and Tripadvisors!) and just went. Well suffice it to say, I bought the book "How to Quit Your Job and Move to Key West" and will use it and my memories to get me through those tough times in the... More

We actually based where we were going to stay completely off of Trip Advisor. The Island City House was rated #2 for all of Key West. The hotel was just beautiful! It was like stepping into a story book! The grounds were full of blooms and plants with a tropical setting. Brick paved walkways lined the paths to our room... More

My family and I stayed at this hotel in June and loved it! We stayed in the Cigar house (upstairs) and the rooms were enormous! There is a full kitchen with full-size stove, refrigerator, and even a dishwasher (we didn't use any except the refrigerator). The bed was huge and soft, with an abundance of pillows. The floors are wood... More

My husband and I spent two nights here as we explored the florida keys. We booked directly with the hotel and got the best rate-we reserved a street view but were upgraded when we arrived to courtyard view. The room was huge! Kitchen, living room, private balcony with hammock, big bathroom. Very clean. Continental breakfast was basic but met our... More

An exotic peaceful haven where one is sure to have the best stay ever ! If you stay in Key West you should definitely go there. The hotel resembles a big hacienda buried in luxurious vegetation, the rooms are spacious greatly furnished and equipped (do not hesistate to pay a little bit more to get a suite, it's really worth...

I stayed at the Island City House Hotel for six nights in May 2006. I picked the hotel because of all the positive reviews. I was not disappointed. As a single person in my mid-30's I found this b&b to be the perfect accomodations for my temperment. I stayed in room #14 of the Island City House. It was spotless,... More

The Island City House was wonderful. I cannot write enough great things about this hotel. The staff is wonderful, the rooms are comfortable, clean, and inviting to stay in. The location of the hotel is close enough to everything in Key West to be able to walk and yet quiet, which is hard to find in this area. I did... More

This was our fourth trip to Key West, and our first time staying at the Island City House Hotel. Everything was perfect! The hotel is comprised of three properties: the Island City House, the Cigar House, and the Arch House. We stayed on the 2nd floor of the Island City House and had view of the pool from the balcony.... More
