For travellers looking for a good base to explore Florence Casa Howard is well located on Via Della Scala 5 minutes walk from the main train station in Florence and very close to the church Santa Maria Novela which is a good well known landmark which makes it easier to find. But please note its not a hotel, so no toiletries or room service (except breakfast served in bed at time you request!). Rather it's like having an apartment in Florence with your own key to the front door and rooms. From the archaic lift to the Apartment on the first floor, the touches of distinct tasteful design in the rooms, bathrooms and common areas you feel transported in time from whereever you've travelled from to this is a stylish home in Florence that is now yours. So if you want to feel like a real Firenzian choose Casa Howard and you won't be disappointed.
