Certificate of Excellence

The breakfasts in bed were such a treat! The room was small but beautifully decorated, well presented and very clean. Cristine, who speaks excellent English, was extremely helpful. We would certainly go back and hope to visit Casa Howard in Florence too!

Casa Howard Capo Le Case, like its sister properties at via Sistina and in Florence, is a wonderful gem of a guest house. It's not a hotel, so it might not be an ideal fit for people looking for a full suite of hotel services and amenities. But independent-minded travelers looking for a well-designed home base from which to navigate the city will find much to love at Casa Howard.

My wife and I stayed here in January for our last night in Rome before leaving Italy. It was everything we were looking for: a beautiful, quiet apartment with an en-suite bathroom (which, as a bonus, was stocked with products from the inimitable Santa Maria Novella pharmacy in Florence). The guest house was able to arrange for airport transportation for us; the reliable car service arrived exactly on schedule, and payment was handled without hassle.

An honor bar and a well-edited selection of books is available for guests' use during their stay. Breakfast can be arranged, although we didn't take advantage this time.

I have only good things to say about this property.

Room Tip: The Green Room is lovely, with both an en-suite bathroom and a street view. I am sure that other ro...

Conveniently located near Spanish Steps. Other major Rome attractions east of river also easily walkable. We stayed in the Green Room. Furnished with a double bed with a very firm mattress, small desk and a private bathroom with shower. Although it looks right out on to the street from the second floor, it was fairly quiet. Drinks like wine, beer and Coke are available just outside the door for a small charge. Hostess was very friendly and eager to answer our questions. Comfortable overall. Not luxurious, but after all this is not a hotel, it is a guest house.

First impressions count - and the first few impressions of the capo le case house weren't that great. I was a bit sceptical after having booked the residence because of some so-so reviews - and the initial struggle to find the place had me worried. It's an unmarked green door, with no signs and only the number ('18') above the door.

We stayed in the Chinese room which was small....very small. Again, I thought all my fears had come to fruition. Especially when the free wifi struggled to reach to the back of the building where the Chinese room is located. Gulp.

After having spent 3 days here, though, I realised what a gem the place was. The hammam shower/toilet that comes with the Chinese room (even though a wander down a corridor!) was fantastic. Christina, the concierge was really helpful too. The room also grew on me, it was cosy and warm, quiet too when you close the windows and the bed was comfy.

Luckily the place was empty when we stayed, although on the last evening another couple arrived and we could hear every toilet flush, or shower taken. If full, the place might be more of a cacophony perhaps.

Overall I would stay here again, it's serene and quiet, cosy and well located....

Room Tip: The green room looked the largest, and had an en suite. The Chinese room has the hammam so is worth...

The manager Christina was most accommodating and helpful. Good restaurant and tour suggestions. The "hotel" is located near the Spanish Steps, which is a plus. We walked everywhere. Hotel is OK, not great, rooms small; but I'd go back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing della Scala - as they are quieter. But good insulation on windows.

We stayed at Via Sistina for two nights and were extremely well advised. Casa Howard is a true boutique which offers more services you would expect from a normal B&B. The house is very chic and exceptionally well refined, but at the same time warm and cozy. Each room is original and is decorated with its own style. Edgar the housekeeper is always up for showing his guests around the other rooms of the house if they are free to be seen. And the Breakfast! Its served in bed on a beautiful set of porcelain with silver cutlery! And what seemed to me fresh products from the coutry side. Location is good, not too far from the well-known Spanish steps (4-5 minute walk). If you are sick of the usual monotonous hotel and insearch of something with taste I recommend casa howard.

I stayed at Via Capo le Case for three nights visiting old university friends over the holidays. The whole house is wonderfully refined with classy style rooms, each one of a different kind. I stayed two nights in the pink room and one in the white room and loved them both! Care for detail is really strong, and the whole atmosphere makes you feel at home. The white room didn’t include an en-suite bathroom, which is instead located outside the room down the corridor, however slippers and a beautiful Japanese kimono are provided by the house keeper. Finally, casa howard’s location is unbeatable, literally at a stone throw away from the Spanish steps, I think few places are found at such price.
