    Super little rooms. Stay away from the front street level rooms. They can be noisy. Good prices for Key West. Comfortable beds.

    Very nice & clean. Quiet home on a quiet street. Centrally located, walking distance to everything. No roosters to wake you. Only con, this house does not serve breakfast. Offers coffee, tea and pre-packaged muffins.

    This quaint guesthouse right off of Duval was so much more than we expected. My boyfriend and I spent two nights here over St. Patrick's Day Weekend and couldn't have been happier. We got an awesome room at the back of the house that had its own private entrance and a patio. The king sized bed was squeaky, but comfy, and the mini fridge came in handy for bottled water (which were a dollar by the front office). The only problem was that the shower was super small, but it was definitely not a deal breaker. The whole house was so cute and clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the location was perfect: right near Duval, the beach, and Mallory Square. We didn't bother eating the breakfast because of all the bad reviews, but the coffee is free! We will definitely be back.

    Okay so I wanted to love this place because I love stuart the man that runs it BUT unfortunately I think it has some things working against it.

    No parking. Which did not seem like a big deal because there was free parking about two blocks over BUT after our rental car got hit (and no one left a note) all of a sudden off street parking made more sense.

    The breakfast was a joke. For anyone even slightly health conscious the muffins were little debby, and the fruit was very poor quality.

    Go for the friendly faces, stay for the location, leave to go to breakfast.

    Decided to stay here this past weekend in Key West and absolutely loved it! We arrived on Thursday about 3 hours earlier than the check-in time and the owner had no problem letting us into our room ahead of time so we could drop our stuff off and get our trip started.

    The parking is about 2 blocks away behind the courthouse and after 5pm during the week and on the weekends there is no problem parking back there. The walk is literally only about 3-5 minutes so that's not really a concern unless you're using a walker.

    The price was perfect for the place ($119/night) and while the queen rooms aren't huge by any means, they are certainly big enough and the beds are comfortable enough to serve you well. Why spend $250-300 per night for a place that you're only going to sleep in? It's ridiculous. I'll pay half of that and do twice as much with it.

    The Wifi was very reliable as well. I watched several shows while resting and didn't have one problem loading them on the computer from the Wifi. I've heard that the breakfast is lacking, but I cannot speak for that myself as I didn't even see it and we just went out for breakfast in the mornings anyways. Go to Blue Heaven (5 mins. walking) or Camille's (10 mins. walking) and you'll be much happier you did.

    The only problem are the thin walls and the echoes. If you have considerate neighbors it isn't an issue, but we had some obnoxious people from Spain staying next to us on our last night and they acted as if the place was their own personal home by yelling, etc. throughout the place. Other than them, the place was quiet and I would definitely stay here again if I were to find myself down in Key West. It's within walking distance of everything and is only 1 block from Duval Street. You can't beat that for the price!

    We stayed for one night at l'Habitation in 2008. We were 4 people and as all single rooms were booked we decided to go for the Suite.
    We really wanted to stay at l'Habitation because one of the most famous critics book in France (le Routard) wrote this b&b was fantastic.

    The welcoming was not so great : we didn't even visit the room before we paid with the owner. The owner eve made a remark that I called too many times to get the Suite. We discover the Suite on our own after paying $330. The A/C was a bit noisy but efficient. I suppose this is the same for all b&b and expensive to change. But I also suppose that when a b&b is booked like this with those prices, changing A/C putting newer ones could be an added value for the b&b.

    The rooms were comfortable and clean. Large TV, nice sofa, small fridge. It was ok and it was exactly what we expected.

    The location of this b&b is awesome. Few meters from Duval Street, sunset point, there is also a free postal parking just right in the corner of the hotel.

    Regarding the breakfast, it was good but not as good the french critic book wrote. Yes, there were croissants, bread, apples, milk, newspapers on a large balcony with wood tables. It was raining but the atmosphere was interesting. It was very quiet which was important.

    To put it in a nutshell, this stay was nice but they should be careful while welcoming guests. The room we were staying was ok but apparently, we walked through a room near the entrance (single room) which appeared to be very beautiful.

    We decided to go to the Keys for a quick little getaway. We wanted to stay in a nice place that I can't find anywhere else (ex. Hilton, Double Tree etc.)

    A friend of mine recommended this place and after much reviews we thought the place and the price sounded perfect.

    We were 2 adults and a toddler. The room was not much smaller then your typical hotel room. It was cozy. I think people forget that these are houses turned into hotel rooms. I don't know about you, but from what I know, houses only have 1 master bedroom and then a couple of smaller sized rooms. The room was perfect for changing your clothes, taking a shower, and sleeping. I never understood why someone needs a huge room in a place where you will hardly be.

    I met both owners and they were very friendly. Stuart always stopped and chatted with us.

    The reason I couldn't give it 5 stars is because the breakfast is kind of lacking. They have coffee and tea with an assortment of packaged things like muffins and danishes. Although it did fill us up, when staying at a B&B or Guesthouse, I would expect a home cooked style meal. HOWEVER, in there defense, I also see it pointless to cook suck overwhelming amounts of food because the place is rather small and I have sure they have tried it before and it was just a waste.

    We will definitely be returning!

    I have to give L'habitation 5 stars because I rounded up from 4.5 stars. The only complaint I had was that the free parking was 2 blocks away behind the courthouse. There was metered street parking, though. L'habitation is tucked away down Eaton street, just a couple of buildings away from Duval, but nestled enough where you aren't exposed to all of the noise of Duval.

    This B&B had comfy beds and sheets, mini fridges, cool air conditioning (important during hot Key West nights!), a nice private bathroom and lots of other amenities that are bonus. Every morning you can find breakfast on the upstairs patio, featuring coffee, juice, croissants, donuts and fruit. There are a couple of mini fridges in the lobby stocked with water and soda that guests can help themselves to on the honor code that they'll leave a dollar in the basket.

    Staff was beyond friendly and helpful and there is a full maid service. This will be my go-to B&B for stays in the Keys. Special props to my friend and fellow Yelper Krystal B. for finding this gem!

    We stayed here for two nights and I'm very glad I found this place! I hope others see this review and decide to book here as an alternative for some of the other Duval locations.

    First off, we were just steps off Duval on Eaton Street. Located next to the historic movie theater and a delicious doughnut shop! [Bonus: The breakfast they had in the morning at L'habitation actually included some of the doughnuts from next door!]

    Since we were going off season [June], the price per night was very reasonable for being so centrally located. This place seemed to be the most affordable option we could find that was close to Duval and also not too far away from Mallory Square. The location proved to be perfect!

    We had rooms 17 & 18 and these particular rooms had a deck that we shared. It was very nice since we were traveling together and could have drinks on the deck or read. Our room was quite large [we had the king room] and it had a couch and table with a mini fridge. The shower was small and our friends next door in the smaller room had a larger tub. No big deal though! Just tiny details if you are specific to wanting one thing or another.

    Staff was friendly and helpful.

    The only negatives I can think of was that our room didn't have hot water but I chalked that up to staying at a B&B and showering at odd times. We had hot water come out of the sink though. Parking was a bit rough as it was unclear where we could park. There were unmarked spaces behind the courthouse that we could use that were first come, first serve. There is metered spaces in front of the b&b though.

    love L'habitation!! Have stayed there several times and have zero complaints.  Location is perfect, one block off Duval so walking isn't bad but far enough away that you dont have any of the noise.  The staff is extremely accommodating, and  have been able to meet me at different points throughout the day and night when I'm checking out or arriving later than expected.  Very nice people and gorgeous rooms, every room with free wifi, TV, air conditioning, and refrigerator. Will 100% be staying here for years to come

    Cannot believe this place had 4.7 stars, if I could give this place less I definitely   would. The guy that runs the desk was rude and the room was very tiny  I will never be back and we come down 2-3 times a year

    This B&B is centrally located on Eaton Street...just yards from Duval Street. Helen is a gracious hostess. She is very accommodating. The room was clean, but the bathroom looks like an after-thought. Way too small and no shelves to put toiletries.  Coffee is available 24/7. There is a continental breakfast, but it is upstairs which is not convenient for the disabled so we could not participate. This place could be five star if there was adequate parking facilities which is in short supply in KW. It would be best to fly in and use a taxi. Had to park three blocks away in a city employee lot. There is closer parking, but you must pay $2/hour. Good place to stay.

    I am giving L'habitation 5 stars because Stuart, the owner, made us feel right at home. We talked to him several times during out stay and he gave us advice on places to see and do. He also gave us a history lesson on the area, which u thought was awesome! Our room was cute and spacious for the 3 of us. The continental breakfast was satisfying and the location of this b&b was perfect. Right off if Duval St and walking distance from many if the sights. There is free parking a couple of blocks away at the courthouse after 530 pm.  We were there for the weekend so we were able to just leave out car there for the entire time. I would definitely stay there again. Thank you for your hospitality Stuart!

    Really enjoyed staying here as it was so close to everything. I thought the staff was great, very accommodating, and really enjoyed the breakfast and coffee available every morning to us. Would definitely recommend.  No pool is the only downfall.  We stayed in the 2 bedroom.
