Casa Howard

Casa Howard prides itself on being a guest house that is “much more than just a hotel”, as it combines the stylish elegance of a boutique residence and the high-class services of a Grand Hotel with the intimate, relaxed qualities of a bed and breakfast.

Situated near the city’s Renaissance centre, all of the rooms at Casa Howard are decorated with eccentricity and flair and have stunning view’s over Florence’s romantic and historic architecture.

The guest house also offers a range of top-quality services that will make your stay in Florence extra indulgent, from airport greetings to sumptuous, complimentary bathroom products, including scented soaps made by Officina de’ Profumi (with a shop located in the nearby Santa Maria Novella), and pumice stones all the way from the Aeolian Islands!

Furthermore, a particular highlight of Casa Howard is their Turkish bath service, where you can relax and rejuvenate after a day of exploring the city of Michaelangelo and Botticelli, surrounded by authentic tiles and ochre hues which will transport you back in time and make you feel like a pampered member of the aristocratic Medici family!

Eccentric and poetically decorated, the elegant rooms at Casa Howard are each designed with their own individual charm to suit the preferences of every traveller.

Whilst book worms should request the Library Room, a tranquil refuge with walls lined with packed bookshelves and an antique desk from which you can indulge in the delights of your favourite novel, fashionable style seekers should book into the B&W room, a monochromatic heaven packed with references to the 1970s, Eastern influences and a reproduction of Manet’s famous XX adorning the wall.

If you’re bringing your children with you (so they can get a taste for fine things from a young age!), there’s even the Play Room, a sunny, welcoming yellow hued suite which provides many entertainments for little ones, including elephant printed curtains, cuddly toys, and even a make shift climbing wall! We also love the exquisite bathroom, adorned with painted tiles depicting charming rambling yellow flowers.

Later on in the day, you can also make your own traditional Italian dishes as part of Casa Howard’s very own cooking classes led by expert chefs.
