Ok, first of all, let me say; Rent A Bike!!! If you have a bike, your day/days in Key West will be soooo much more relaxing and easy! And fun!! It is SO worth it!!! It only costs a few dollars a day! If you are planning to walk everywhere, you will get tired!! Although it is not a very big place, the blocks seems long, and you will be walking and walking and walking aaaaaall day, because there is so much to see and do!! And it's hot, hot, hot! Humid & Hot! Having a bike, makes it so easy! And it's nice to feel the breeze while cycling...! This relaxing and chilled guesthouse is a good place to stay in Old Town, it is close to everything - I loved the location!! You have everything near you; a grocery store, restaurants, a fantastic little bakery (Old Town Bakery) the harbour, great breakfast-places (Harpoon Harry's; not to be missed..! Fantastic breakfast!) and if you have a bike, it'll take you 2-4 mins to Duvall street. I really enjoyed my days at The Artist House on Fleming, which provide good bikes to rent. Bikes have a basket, too. I am so glad I didn't stay on busy and noisy Duvall.. I went to the Happy Hour in the sister-hotel; The Artist House (on Eaton). It was nice to meet other travellers and share some stories. Personally, I much prefer Artist House on Fleming, I wish they would have a Happy Hour there...! The Artist House on Fleming is much nicer, with more space, too! The staff was very helpful. I had a nice room; The Geiger Room was my pad during my time on this beautiful and friendly island. I really enjoyed coming back to my room and just relax. Good to have a fridge, and wifi was fast and always working. A great place to stay whilst in Key West. I hope to return very soon!
If I was going to point one thing out...:
- the large bed in the main room of The Geiger Suite, maybe time to change this mattress...? Just sitting on this bed.... I felt as I was going to go down on the floor...! Too soft, no life in the mattress at all, must be painful for a sore back....! I felt straight away I could never have had a good night's sleep on this mattress, so choose the other bed, which was smaller, but nice & firm & I slept very good.
- I know the window shutters have a purpose; hurricane. However; I wish they weren't necessary, I would've loved to be able to see out of the windows....! And with the shutters, you couldn't see much at all.
