I can see why Ambrosia House is in the top 10. We have stayed with them before and would have our last trip in February 2004 but the rooms big enough for 5 of us were unavailable. We did, however, spend our last 2 nights of our vacation there after within 1/2 hour of being told by the Banyon Resort that our reservation had been CANCELLED (by Whom????) Ambrosia was able to fit us in. Their staff is very personalble and accomodating and we certainly would recommend it for couples or families.

We chose the Ambrosia House by chance after looking on the Key West website for Guest Houses. What a wonderful choice. We stayed there the week of March 21st for our honeymoon. I have to say that the owner & staff could not have been any more friendly, courteous and helpful. Our house was beautifully decorated. The livingroom and bedroom were extremely spacious, with a front porch and upstairs balcony that stretched the entire width of the front of the house. Our favorite was the poolside breakfast that was placed in a gazebo which was completely surrounded by palms & tropical foliage. The spiral staircase to the second level was also a unique addition to the suite. We enjoyed afternoons by one of the private pools in the rear of one of the properties. It was hard to believe that we were only 2 1/2 blocks from all the activity on Duvall Street. We were so close, but yet our place was very quiet & private. The staff truly catered to our every whim. If we even casually mentioned something we needed, they took care of it immediately. It was also especially nice to find a bouquet of fresh tropical flowers in our livingroom with a nice note to congratulate us on our marriage. If you are considering a place to stay, and service & location are important to you, Ambrosia House should be your first choice!!

After my wife discovered Ambrosia House several years ago, we return 3 or more times each year. Ambrosia has become a second home to us. I've been going to Key West since 1978, alone and with various wives and have stayed just about everywhere on the island, so comparisons are realitively easy. If you're looking for a great Old Town location, reasonable rates, funky Key West rooms, staffed by real people with a sense of humor and an owner with style and warmth .......Ambrosia is for you. I've recommended Ambrosia to all my friends. Their collective response can be summerized by "really cool place, we had a great time".
Try it, you'll love it.

My new husband and I stayed at Ambrosia Too, part of the Ambrosia House property. We stayed in the townhouse suite called Bob's Place, and it was absolutely wonderful. It was two stories, with a wrap around deck on the upper level, and six shutter doors that we could leave open to experience the cool tropical breezes and still have privacy. There was a hammock for afternoon naps and plenty of furniture to entertain guests. This last part was important because we got married during our week in Key West, and had family and friends stopping by.

The staff at Ambrosia Too made our final wedding plans so easy and stress-free: they arranged for my dress and the tuxedos to be pressed and delivered to our room, recommended a florist who created beautiful flowers for our ceremony, and generally helped make our experience very low-stress.

The hotel grounds are gorgeous - we even took many of our wedding photos in the lush vegetation near one of the pools - and the rooms are beautifully decorated.

And the best part - we were walking distance from Duvall Street and many of the major attractions, so we didn't need to worry about renting a car or parking, except for one day when we drove to Marathon to swim with the dolphins at the Dolphin Research Center. Even then, we found easy parking at Ambrosia Too.

We'll definitely return to Ambrosia Too or Ambrosia House, and highly recommend it to anyone considering a Key West vacation.

I just got back from a wonderful vacation at the Ambrosia House in Key West and can't wait to go back. Our room was a poolside room at the Ambrosia too, which (as the name might suggest) overlooked the pool/patio area. When we first arrived I was a little nervous that it might be loud (especially in the mornning since the lovely breakfast is served poolside) but i was pleasantly surprised that we couldn't hear a thing. The rooms were simple, but clean and very nice, and both the living space and bathroom were quite large in comparison to other B&B's. I'd have to say that one of my favorite things about the Ambrosia house however, was it's VERY convenient location to EVERYTHING!! All the sights and restaurants and Duval Street are within walking distance, and we only got in our car once when we went to the other side of the island to see other beaches (although, there are beaches w/in walking distance as well). Overall, the Inn was wonderful, and i'd reccomend it to anyone looking for a very nice & resonably priced place to stay in Key West!!!

Just returned from 10 days in Key West and absolutely loved Ambrosia Too. We had a poolside room, upstairs(#108). The room was large, had a mini fridge, tile floor, decent closet, a a nice bath. No tub, but a large 2 person shower, which one might find very handy. Our bed was extremely comfortable, which my fussy back enjoyed. The pools are not huge, but are nice for a refreshing dip. The one up front is a lap pool, while the one toward the rear of the property is a smaller dip pool. Plenty of room to lounge in the sun, however this time of year it requires a little more effort, as the angle of the sun is not so much directly overhead. Fantastic location on Fleming, just off Simonton, 2 blks from Duval. BTW, Fleming is a one way street, so traffic noise was never an issue. Staff was very helpful when asked, but otherwise unobtrusive, just the way we like it. Breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, yogurts, muffins, bagels, juices, and coffee served poolside.
We've traveled throughout the Caribbean, and several times to Key West, hard to remember a better stay than this one. We highly recommend!!
