Great location just around the corner from Duval Street. Pluses: Convenient location. Reasonable price (for Key West). Clean, attractive, comfortable rooms. Plenty of hot water in bath. Friendly and helpful proprietor. Breakfast on 2nd floor back porch - well shaded. Nice front porch on street (for people watching with wine in the evening or coffee in morning. Free coffee machine...

A big front porch with two comfortable seating areas, a light breakfast outside on an open air porch, relaxed hospitality that includes free fresh coffee at any hour and a $1 suggested donation for water or soda - all this and clean, nicely appointed rooms too! Who needs more, especially when L'Habitation charges a very fair price for its rooms?

Clean, nice home but very small bathroom. Had to ask for clean towels and soap on the second day. Host could be nice but definitely seemed rude sometimes. Never met the hostess. No parking available. We had to park at the courthouse several blocks away.

After reading reviews of this guesthouse, I found a great deal online at hotels.com and booked it. A few hours later, I decided to cancel the reservation and was told explicitly by hotels.com that the hotel would charge me a one night cancelation (even though I canceled within 24 hours of making the reservation and nearly a month before my...

We loved the guesthouse...it had such nice character and warm colors. They use the word charming on the website and we felt that was the perfect description. The room was very spacious. We had some friends in Key West at the same time and they stayed at a place that cost more than twice as much and the room was... More

We loved our stay L'habitation! We took a queen bedded room which was basic but beautifully decorated, loved the art work in our room and in the hotel lobby. The owner was friendly and helpful, telling us where we could park our car without having to pay (ps it's behind the court house) and made the checkin and out both... More

Great place nice, clean and spacious room. The owner is very friendly and helpful. It's right where every thing is happening, Two buildings down from Duval street. I would definitely recommend this place to any one with no hesitation.

Brilliant location just around the corner from Duval St. The proprietor was really friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was OK. The only thing to be aware of is that you have to park 2 blocks away on the street but, as it is where local government workers park during the day, you have to... More

The benefit of L'habitation is the location; 30 second walk from Duval street and Whitehead street, yet very quiet. I was quite disappointed with the room itself. The bed was queen size and the room did not fit 2 suitcases comfortably. The wifi also didn't reach to the room as it was at the back of the house. Was happy... More

Spent 3 nights here mid September. Brilliant location. Found free parking close by. Room 18 was quiet and tranquil. Bath tub was not clean with hairs in and a nail clipping yuk. Bedroom blinds particularly door were dusty and fluffy. Breakfast was ish. First morning no coffee in pot and one donut left even though it was 9am.
