This is a recently renovated hotel in a central location for Duval Street and the nightlife of Key West. The staff were welcoming and friendly to us on arrival and at first glance we thought the property looked very attractive and characterful.
However, we were then shown to our room which was not in the main house but in a small outhouse at the back of the pool area, which was the smallest room we had stayed on throughout our holiday trip around the Keys. Whilst it was clean and modern, there were no coffee making facilities, no mini bar, a noisy A/C unit, and poor lighting. The safe was too small for the modern traveller's needs with all our laptops, tablets, phones and mobiles.
Whatsmore, we were awoken on the first night of our stay by a drunken local who attempted to break into our gated area at the back of the swimming pool and the sound of smashing glass very close by at 230am was rather disconcerting, though of course no fault of the hotel itself. We were later told that the guy was arrested by local police but of course we were understandably nervous on our second night's stay.
Breakfast was adequate and freshly served, and really the staff and their welcoming service were the best aspect of this hotel. If we were to return to Cypress House again, we would insist on staying in the main building which looked far more characterful and we suspect had larger rooms than the small swimming pool outhouse we were placed in.
