Very Good 8.2 From 127 reviews

Casa Howard, Florence
It was the worst room I have ever stayed in. It looked like straight out of a horror movie. The room I booked with a court yard view was given to someone else so after calling the staff agreed to upgrade. They put us in the creepiest room ever! A rock climbing wall a creepy teddy bear old books, very strange pictures on the wall. I would never recommend anyone stay there

For the price, it's has location.
The room is clean and little bit old. When we got to the room, the lock of the door to the patio is broken. It can't lock. And they try to fix it and no luck.

Cheap and convenient location
The place was a little dark, dingy, smelly, and scary. The staff during check-in were very nice, helpful, and responsive. But I wasn't sure if anyone was around "after hours." Not a typical hotel stay. I guess the experience was commensurate with the low cost.

Great find
Booked last minute while on the train from Venice to Florence... Great place for hopping on and off the train and visiting major sites like the Effizo. Wonderful service, fun room, nice in room breakfast. Great find.
