Casa Howard, Florence
The guest house is located on Via della Scala, a street just behind Basilica di Santa Maria Novella. Its location, just five minutes from the main SMV railway station, and the value for money was what drawn us to book here after a failure of a Airbnb host to confirm a booking. Florence city center is small, but it was still neat to find that the guest house was less than ten minutes walk away to the Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral. A far cry from the dreadful Airbnb flat we had in Rome.
As it was a quiet time of the year, we were upgraded from the ground floor room to one on the first floor. Not that there were any issues with the room we booked. Both were wonderful. Each room were unique and features original wooden shutters and lovely exposed ceiling beams. The bigger rooms had marble floors, while the smaller ones are carpeted. I had a quick peak at their suite, which was incredibly stylish. The bathroom looks as if they were newly refurbished.
