Situated in Florence’s historical center, Casa Howard is the quintessence of a Boutique Hotel.

Our mission is to assure that you will be able to relax in the warm and welcoming atmosphere of a 16th century private residence, while benefitting from the high level of service provided by our attentive and experienced team.

Upon entering you will discover an eclectic private house, which will inevitably capture your heart. Each of Casa Howard’s rooms and suites were designed and decorated to create a Florentine residence like no other. The combination of refined fabrics, local ceramics, elegant marble and post-modern furnishings define the individuality and personality of the property. In this Historical Residence, you will breathe in the true essence of Tuscany together with the international influence of the owners. We are proud to have set the bar for a new standard in hospitality and are here to create an experience which will not only be pleasurable but also memorable.

We have transformed Casa Howard’s modus operandi to get in line with the highest standard of eco-sustainability practices. From replacing plastic bin bags with recycled paper ones, to bamboo organic toilet paper, to compostable bathroom kits and refillable Nespresso inox capsules, every little change has a great impact. Explore below all the services we have innovated.

Green Future Project

We devolve 1% of our sales to Green Future Project, which in turn invests the financial resources into environmental projects that contribute to protect and regenerate ecosystems. By investing in these projects and contributing to the natural absorption of CO2e from the atmosphere, Casa Howard offsets a part of its carbon footprint.

Soaps and products from Santa Maria Novella Pharmacy

You will find all our soaps and products contained in especially made containers, to eliminate single use plastic.

Inox Steel Nespresso Capsules

Each Nespresso machine comes with four refilled and refillable inox steel capsules,
to reduce single use plastic.

Microfiltered Water

Casa Howard only uses silk-screened water bottles,
sealed daily to cut single-use plastic.

Silk Technology

Casa Howard uses patented Silk biologic silk filling for its duvets and pillows,
which is also an excellent way to balance our carbon footprint
since silk farming requires planting mulberry trees regularly.

On arrival you will be given the keys to your rooms and the main entrance.
You will need them to access the hotel and to turn on the lights, once inserted in the room's wall.
Other than being in complete harmony with Casa Howard's aesthetic, the original keys were kept to avoid the use of plastic cards.

"The look is classy, cosy and vaguely eccentric; the emphasis in the 13 highly individual bedrooms is on quality and fine fabrics."
