Casa Howard, now run by the second generation of the founding family, is marked by the stories of its owners and its city. Each of the rooms represents a distinct character in the guest house’s narrative, which spans almost 5 decades. Intriguing artwork and quirky touches set each room apart, but they are all united by way of a supremely comfortable bed with sumptuous linens.
All rooms feature an ensuite bathroom, air conditioning and free Wi-Fi with fibre broadband connection. Guests are offered Richard Ginori crockery and soaps from the iconic Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella.
All the Deluxe rooms comprise an indoor or outdoor seating area, such as the Terrace room with its own private terrace looking onto Florence’s rooftops. The iconic Studio has a standalone tub, access to a patio and a mezzanine sleeping area. The Camel room has an elegant four-poster and a kitsch plaid sofa and the seductive glamour of the Oriental room speaks for itself.
A unique feature of Casa Howard is their elegant breakfast trays, served to your door every morning. Start your morning right with hot buttered toast, organic eggs and a freshly-baked cornetto. There’s nothing better than lingering over a velvety cappuccino or a fragrant tea as you listen to the sounds of a Florentine morning drifting in through the window.
Located next to the Santa Maria Novella Church in the beating historical heart of Florence, a stay at Casa Howard lets you live your Renaissance dream. Tucked away down Via della Scala street, you can reach iconic sites such as the Duomo and Officina dei Profumo within minutes.
The train station is located less than 5 minute walk away and central Florence has easy access to Pisa, where there is an international airport.
Like the fig tree roots, the property is constantly addressing many sustainable tourism areas and excelling in most fields.
