Hi! My partner and I came to Florida from Switzerland, and visited Key West as part of our trip. We were looking online for a hotel to stay in Key West, and weren’t too happy with the choices that were listed at first.
And then we found Merlin Guesthouse!
The pictures online looked really warm and inviting, and it made the hotel stand out more compared to the others that were listed in our search. We booked it, and looked forward to arriving at Merlin Guesthouse. As we arrived, we were more than surprised, and in a very positive way! The hotel was exactly how it was shown in the pictures and even more! The reception hidden away in a little office amongst the trees and plants, super cute! The wooden houses kept upright from back in the days, gave it a”homey” feel. Not only on the outside of the building, but also inside the room we had wooden flooring. The room was clean and very welcoming made up. I would have jumped into bed right away because I was so tired, but instead I jumped into the pool because it was so HOT! Breakfast was outside, poolside.
The location of the guesthouse is also perfect: Close to Duval Street where all the shops and bars are, and close to tourist attractions that are all in walking distance. I mean almost all of west Key West is within walking distance, and the hotel is located perfectly, more or less, in the middle.
I can only recommend coming to Merlin Guesthouse. Kenneth, who greeted us at reception, made our stay relaxing and enjoyable from beginning to end. We even extended one more night! So, if you are in Key West, come stay at the Merlin! Maybe you’ll bump into Kenneth, or maybe even into Jordan, the hotel cat! 🙂By: Dewi Joerger June 12, 2014
