Located just 10 minutes from the Key West International Airport, Chelsea House Hotel in Key West is a historic boutique hotel in the center of Old Town. With a large garden and heated pool, it’s a peaceful place for families to relax between all the activities the island offers. The Victorian era buildings here date to the late 1800s and early 1900s, so charm abounds. But the updated, modern rooms let you soak up the history without sacrificing any contemporary amenities. Among the amenities are free Wi-Fi, free continental breakfast daily and a microwave and refrigerator in each room.
You’re just two blocks off Duval Street here, so the location couldn’t be better — in the heart of the action, but also removed from most of the noise from the nighttime revelry. Come sunset, it’s a short walk over to the nightly celebrations at Mallory Square.

One block back from Duval Street fabulous location for getting around. Hotel was nice and quiet. Room spotlessly clean. A/C very noisy and right above your head whilst in bed had to switch off to get to sleep then room starts to warm up. Not the best position for it in my opinion. Thankfully it was only one night couldn't have put up with that for any length of time. Breakfast wasn't the best either and no tables left to sit at so had to wait for someone to leave. All in all not too bad.
This hotel is in a great location and the staff are very friendly. The rooms are good and clean - the only downside is the noisy A/C unit but due to the age of the property this can't be helped. The pool is nice with towels provided. Breakfast is around the pool and has a good range on offer.
