I am really not sure what all the fuss about this guesthouse is about. We found it singularly disappointing. The room (number 2) was tiny, hardly larger than the bed, could not be properly darkened (no curtains, just shades that did not work properly), had a bathroom with a door that could not be properly closed and had what surely...

I stayed at Alexander's for a few days in September. I had a very nice time. The staff are very attentive. The morning food/coffee spread was something I usually missed but I was impressed by the quality and attention to detail on the days I could take advantage of it. Key West was amazingly hot and humid while I was... More

Just back from 6 days at Alexander's Guesthouse. My daughter brought me here as a retirement gift and I am so, so glad she did. She chose it because it was rated #1 on Tripadvison-with good reason. It is a gay-friendly place but certainly not restricted. We are not gay but we are "friends of the community". There were other... More

It was our first stay at Alexander's and after 4 days there we can say that this truly was our best time ever being away from home. Besides the really tasteful designed house, room and pool area it was the very very nice staff that made the difference. We did not feel like being in a guesthouse or hotel -... More

I've recently returned from a nine day stay and I can't say enough about Alexander's Guest House in Key West! You are Alexander's family from your first step through the front gate. The rooms are uniquely, expertly and tastefully decorated and the beds are amongst the most comfortable I've ever experienced, including the bedding which is top quality and makes... More

This was the second time this year that my partner and I have stayed at Alexander's. I've stayed there several other times before that. They have had some staff changes this year. Long time staffer Agnes has moved on and Nina and Ryan are new hires. I was sorry to see Agnes leave, just as I was sorry when Charlie... More

A group of five ladies (2 couples and a single) have just enjoyed a luxurious stay at Alexander's. Perfectly located a 10 min stroll from Duval Street (close enough yet far enough away), the guesthouse rooms are lovingly appointed with smart, modern furnishing and it is well equipped with a swimming pool, a hot tub, a bar, bicycles for hire...

Alexander's is top notch in every aspect! The rooms are exquisitely decorated and very clean. The staff are great! They helped me with my bags to my room and really raised the level of my stay. No need to search for any other place to stay ~ will definitely be back!
