“Cheap and chilled”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2009

If you want a luxuriously appointed room in a complex with multiple pools, bars and restaurants then this is not for you.

If you want a comfortable hotel with a cracking little pool area conducive to making new friends during the happy hour (free drinks!) in a great location then this could be right up your street. It is close to Caroline Street with the excellent Pepe's for breakfast and a short walk from Duval with all it's night-life, but far enough to ensure you are not woken up by revellers returning to bed.

We stayed in a private room with our own bathroom, it was quite small, pretty basic but clean and the shower was good. Since we planned to be out of it any time but first thing in the morning and when asleep it really wasn't a problem. The only thing we noticed was an odd smell when we arrived but it soon cleared. The pool area is incredibly tranquil, you wouldn't know you were so central and the sun deck was a great place to take in a bit of sun.

We had a little trouble finding someone to help us check in when we arrived because she was helping set up happy hour, but other than that minor hiccup we received a friendly service and good advice on local restaurants and bars. Other guests were taking advantage of the bikes for rent which would of been cool if we had been staying longer.

We were only spending a long weekend here and it was fantastic. I cannot be sure how it would have worked out for a full week, but think if you are not the sort of person to spend time in your room you will love this hotel.

I meant to write a review as soon as we returned to Wales because this hotel was so good, but I did not get around to doing it. However we are going back to Key West in November and have just booked the Eden House again so I guess there can be no better recommendation than such a swift return! We liked this place as soon as we went to reception and got really good service, a cold drink and a helpful tour of the hotel with useful advise on local facilities. The setting is brilliant with the rooms, hammocks and loungers set around an inviting pool. We had a small room with toilet and shower, everything was clean and tidy and we walked out onto the verandah overlooking the pool. Next door is Azure where we had superb breakfasts and just a few yards further up the road is Finnegans Wake serving a great selection of beers and food. If you want a big impersonal hotel with rooms to match then this is probably not for you but if you are looking for an intimate hotel that really captures the essence of Key West then look no further. We can't wait to get back to Eden House in November when we will introduce my sister and brother-in-law to this special place.

Eden House really is a little bit of heaven on earth. The gardens are lush, the pool and hot tub wonderful and the rooms spotless. The best hotel I have ever stayed in and cannot wait until we can return again. Key West is a place like no other and having Eden House as a base made our holiday even more special. Full of like minded people who are looking for a relaxing but fun time. The staff are always there to help and have all the information you could need including where to eat, drink and watch the sunset. Thank you to you all for such an amazing time.

the hotel was great value compared to others in key west. Its about a 5-7 minute walk to duval st. The service is great and they have free drinks between 4-5 each afternoon which always is welcome. The only negative points are , thr rooms dont have any wardrobes and we had to live out of our suitcases. We also asked for an iron and iron board but was only given an iron , we were told they couldn't find the board so we had to iron on our bed. Also the car park was closed whils we were there. The lady on reception was very helpful and directed us to a parking space around the corner. I ended up getting a fine for $35 because I parked the wrong way in the street. All in all it is a great hotel for the price.

Thank you to Mike and your staff at the Eden House, everything was splendid. Your website and anniversary special made us choose The Eden House. We celebrated a 50th birthday party and booked 3 different rooms for our party of 8. Each room was just as the website pictures it, no surprises and each room was most accomodating for our needs and very clean and well equipped. We enjoyed your daily happy hour and the party for your 35th anniversary was perfect. We will certainly choose only The Eden House the next time we visit Key West. Next time I will rent one of your bikes on day 1 instead of walking every where and also we will spend more time by your lovely pool area rather than hanging out on Duvall. Thanks again you have a great place!!!!

Eden House was so great! The staff is very friendly and hospitable, the facility is super cute and clean! The rooms are a very accurate representation of what you see on their website. The pool area is fun and welcoming - our experience was great. Far enough away from Duval to feel like you could relax and close enough to walk and see the all the sights. Good bang for your buck!

as our whole trip in key west, the hotel was fantastic
a little comfortable room, a beautiful pool, but the best thing about that hotel is the crew (and heather is an angel, didn't you know that already)
the atmosphère is quiet and fun altogether
a perfect place for a few days in key west, not too close and not too far from the center, and with the bikes you can rent at the reception, you can fully enjoy you trip!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Relax In Old Town Key West! The Eden House's first priority has been to maintain a clean inn, offer a comfortable bed, reasonable rates and have a staff that cares. Next comes the heated pool and Jacuzzi, hammocks, porch swings, waterfalls, sundeck, free off-street parking, café and lush gardens.We will have a cold drink for you at check-in and our daily complimentary 'happy hour' is poolside. Then at 10 PM we will dim the lights and let you get a good nights rest. Our night staff will not put a mint on your pillow but they will walk the grounds to insure that you won't be disturbed. I have owned and managed the Eden House for 27 years. I like to think that my staff and me do the 'little' things that will make your stay in Key West a memorable one. Key West is notorious for it's nightlife. Whether it is a sunset sail, a snorkel or kayak trip or deep water and flats fishing, the waters of the Florida Keys are like no other. Just let us know when you want to go.Grab a good book and a drink and I'll see you in the hammock area. ... more   less
