Overall very happy

3.6 on December 04, 2014

the room was nice, the staff was more than helpful, and this is the perfect location if you want to be on Duval Street. It was a little loud from the wooden, old creaky floors and we stayed on the first floor, but all in all, we would definitely stay there again, plus it was fun to walk into the house as a ghost tour was going on and we were staying there!

One of the most beautiful houses in Key West

The house an the room are gorgeous (Eugene studio), but the bathroom would need some refreshement. The location is perfect (just near the main street of Key West) and the breakfast good with a wide choice of products. A bit noisy, but it is a hold house so this is understandable, but if the light coming through the roller blinds early in the morning it is quite annoying if you want to sleep longer in the morning. The bedding is absolutely outstanding!

I'd do it agai in heartbeat!

Stayed in the nursery. The steps are a climb but everything else meant they didnt matter. House hostess was wonderful! This place is a stones throw from Duval. Will return!!

Lovely b&b

A friend of mine suggested me this hotel. I've been here for three days with 4 friends (coming from Italy, not so naer...). Everything was amazing. Hospitality, cleanliness, services. We couldn't ask for more. We've been happy to stay there and I think we'll surely stay in artist's house next time we go to key west.

Loved it!

Beautiful hotel, friendly stuff, clean and big room. It was a weekend trip for my BF birthday and we had a great time. Quiet rooms, 2 minutes walk from all the action on Duval street. Would love to stay longer, but had to go back to work))

This is a very nice place to stay in Key West. The location is perfect, the rooms are very clean and accommodating and the breakfast and Happy Hour is great; but the best thing about the place was the staff. Helen was a joy to meet and she exceeded all expectations on what service should be. We will definitely be returning!

Great Stay!!

My husband and I visited Key West for the first time this September 2012. We had an amazing time. Key West is a little piece of paradise! Our stay at the Artist House was wonderful. Laura was so helpful, so genuine. You can tell she loved her job, she loved Key West and she knew what she was talking about. She was always there to answer questions and give suggestions. The house itself was gorgeous, clean and had everything we needed. Close to everything, even provided bike rentals and parking nearby.We will be returning to the Artist House every year!
