We were 2pax and we stayed in the Drawing Room which could really sleep 4pax or a couple with 2kids. We chose it because the pictures showed a beautiful and elegant room. It was indeed. Very very spacious open concept room. 2 large beds and a living room space. Wardrobe and vanity area space is a little small, although there... More

If you are lucky enough to have one of the 8 rooms in the guest house. The staff are so generous with their attention to detail and their ability to accommodate our requests. It is a very special place and this is because of the wonderful people who are taking care of you during the visit. Amazing service.

Casa Howard is a gem. As they remind guests, Casa Howard is not a hotel. It's a guest house that would be most appreciated by those who place a premium on design and discreet service. Travellers needing the full scope of hotel services (bellmen, restaurants, a large staff, etc) may want to look elsewhere. But independent travellers looking for a... More

If you are looking for something special for your trip in Florence, check this place. It's not a hotel (as they mention on their web page), but it's much more. We loved our staying there and we will go back one day, if possible.

Not the most beautiful part of Florence, but very convenient to the train station. We easily walked to the hotel with our luggage and back to the train station to catch our next train. Florence is small and easily walkable, making this location convenient. Also, some inexpensive restaurants nearby on the next street, Via Palazzuolo, Trattoria Il Contandino - nice... More

Good location. Unlike Casa Howard Rome, there is an outside seating area - albeit small. Management was OK, but not as professional as Casa Howard Rome. Poor internet, but there is a computer in small office for your use. Restaurant recommendation was very expensive, far from hotel, and miniscule amount of food with an arrogant owner - not the hotel's... More

Good location, lovely and charming rooms, the two ladies who ran the place were nice but not over the top. This was our first stay in Florence and I love small boutique hotels like this. The downside is that it is very small and guests coming home at 2 in the morning can be heard all over the place. We... More

What an amazingly central place to stay. I loved listening to the chorus of church bells. We had the terrace room and had breakfast served there in the morning. The whole experience was just beautiful. Next time I would take industrial strength insect repellent as the little black flies are vicious beasties.

Great location of course and the girls were so helpful with everything! Rooms were extremely nice as you can see on the site. We had a flat tire immediately on arrival and they helped call the rental car agency for us. Very close to many good restaurants as well. Charming charming!

The room was beautiful and the service was perfect. Location is ideal for almost everything. Also, I had a lot of work to do and needed to get it done. Casa Howard provided the perfect environment, quiet & accomodating service and the discretion needed in order for me to accomplish my work. Thank you.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
CASA HOWARD Guest Houses – Rome and Florence The Art of Hospitality. Casa Howard Guest Houses are not hotels. Each Casa Howard is a beautiful private house, in an outstanding location whether an apartment, palazzo or farmhouse, which gives personal service, and where some typically "hotel" ideas, methods and services have been borrowed. With uniquely designed, cosy rooms it’s like staying in a very relaxed, stylish friend’s home – as guests you get the keys of the house, you enjoy the original furniture and objects, you feel the atmosphere of the house. A mix of quality-to-price ratio, uniqueness of location, private home heritage and introduced guests approach deserved Casa Howard many featuring on the international press. Last but not least, CH are now in the bestselling 1000 Places to See before You die !!• A SENSORIAL EXPERIENCE : how different is the feeling of spending some days in a real private house rather than in a public grand hotel, in the top art city of the world! LUXE: we may not define CH a luxury place, rather a true exclusive place (nonetheless we are featured on most of the luxury guidebooks in the world, like the LUXE city book of Grant Thatcher or the LOUIS VUITTON guidebook). Casa Howard (Florence) is located close to Santa Maria Novella, Casa Howard (Rome) close to the Spanish Steps – the ideal spots for accessing the city’s profusion of architectural treasures and shopping! Urban chic close to the action. Suave and surprising, the Casa Howard is located close to the Santa Maria Novella – an ideal spot for accessing the city’s profusion of architectural treasures. This is a Guest House, it is not in the hotel category (e.g. they do not have a concierge, nor do they provide porters etc); it is a private family’s houses partially opened to introduced paying guests. Former guests have a priority booking channel. A mix of quality-to-price ratio, uniqueness of location, private home heritage, and introduced guests approach deserved Casa Howard some awards and many many featuring on international press. It is an intriguing mix of private mansion and hip hotel, providing guest accommodation in stylish apartments. Eco attitude : see down *All the original floors and ceilings have been maintained, there are flourishes of pure silk taffeta at the windows, and many love the chic designer touches such as the occasional black silk sofa, sunken marble bath, full-wall padded bed head, mosaic inlay or 18th century French writing desk. For relaxation after a day’s exploration along the Via Tornabuoni, unwind in the hammam. ... more   less
