Excellent mostly because of wonderful staff who were attentive to every need and detail and created a wonderful welcoming atmosphere atmosphere all the time. We felt very at home and everything was working perfectly!!

If only we could give 15 stars, instead of being limited to 5. Great location in the heart of Florence, handy for the train yet peaceful. Accommodation was lovely, warm, homely, quirky and the owners were very welcoming. Excellent value for money. We'll definitely come here again.

We only had time for one night in Florence and we booked very last minute and this were delighted that we were so lucky to find such a lovely place to stay. Spotlessly clean, friendly and helpful staff, deliscious breakfast served in the room and an easy check in. The place was quite and very central and close to amazing restaurants and wine bars and easily accessible to the train station and to cross the river. Can definitely recommend and will stay here again.

They don't advertise it, but they serve breakfast right to your room! Clean, beautiful and amazing staff. Definitely recommend it! We will definitely stay here again and I intend to recommend this to my buddy nad his wife.

Everything is perfect, the location in town, the peaople managing, the rooms, the service and even the breakfast is made with love and passion, served in your room or on the small terrace. I wouls always go there again- and by the way it is moast amazing what you get for your money.

We stayed at Casa Howard for the second time and loved every minute of it. The room (the Fireplace Room) looked grand and the bathroom was simply stunning! The pesonnel were nice and friendly, the beds comfortable, the airconditioner in order and the wi-fi connection strong. The rate was very attractive and this time it even included breakfast which made this place absolutely unbeatable in terms of value for money. We will definitely return!

My stay at the guest was a result of a last minute booking after the disappointment with another hotel. A note: it's better to book a place here via the website of the guest house rather than via (because the direct booking has a lower price or special offers). After the booking of a standard room I received a personal confirmation via email with greetings from the team saying that booking is confirmed and that they expect me. I was allowed to check in early. Moreover, my room was improved!! I had no words when I entered! The room I got was called "Library", and it was full of books! I should say that I do love reading, so I spend the whole evening in my room looking through books in different languages :) This room and the kindness of the team completely stole my heart! And about the team: I was really impressed with the kindness and delicate politeness of the team. Thank you so much, it's a rare type of hospitality welcome and support nowadays, and I appreciate it very much! The location is perfect for roaming about the city, the breakfast is served in the room, and the windows could be opened to enjoy sounds of the city in the evening. So, the guest is highly recommended to everyone who wants to enjoy Florence :)

Beautiful place to stay great location very helpful and friendly staff would highly recommend breakfast was lovely and served in you room very clean . Small balcony but was nice to sit outside and have your morning coffe

Had good nights sleep. Great breakfast, worth paying a bit more for extras. Lovely staff. Quiet after dark. Good central location. Good restaurants nearby and lots of cultural activities in walking distance.

We really enjoyed our one night stay at Casa Howard. It offers a great location for the train station and walking into the city center and our hosts offered a warm welcome and cold drink on arrival. Our bedroom and ensuite bathroom was characterful, charming and comfortable with a/c and high quality linen / towels. Excellent breakfast served in our room.
