      Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Howard GuestHouses Rome

      Classy, elegant and unique place to stay in Rome

      from

      We just returned from a stay at Casa Howard on Via Capo Le Case. I do not at all understand some of the negative reviews posted on this beautiful and friendly place (glad I didn't see them before we left for Rome, or I might have cancelled). We LOVED this classy and unique place and would highly recommend. The house manager Christina was terrific - if you take a nap diring the day and then go out, when you come back your bed is made. At night, the sheets are pulled down for you when you are at dinner. The ceilings are high and beamed. Furniture was antique and charming. Bed was firm and very comfortable. Stay in Green Room if you can - it is the largest room. Housekeeping is immaculate. Lots of charm to this place, location cannnot be beat. Ice is the freezer in the hall (we had a cocktail each night before dinner. Get a bottle of alcohol in the U.S. duty free before you leave the U.S). Warning: there is no "hotel" sign on the front of the building. Make a good note of address. You will be ringing the door bell and once you arrive you will be given a key. Email me if you have further questions. madgepadge@yahoo.com. Marjie

      Loved Casa Howard

      from

      We stayed at the Casa Howard (located nearby the Spanish Steps) in September, 2003. We found the hotel truly charming and the staff to be warm and always helpful to us! From suggestions on dining, to travel arrangements, Christine took great care of us and helped us get settled at the start of our holiday! I would highly recommend a stay at this charming hotel!

      Found treasure

      from

      I stumbled upon this B&B during a search for Rome and what a treasure

      it turned out to be! My accomodation was beautiful. I had the Chinese

      room and although a little dark, it was elegant and very comfortable.

      Cristy, the concierge and manager could not have been better! She went out of her way to pamper and provide a real sense of comfort for me; providing not only creature comforts, but also information, translation, and technology essesitals I needed help with. She speaks several languages fluently and has a warm and friendly personality.

      The location is superb and I would definitely stay here again. As a matter of fact.... I can't wait to return!

      Superb Bed & Breakfast

      from

      Casa Howard was highly recommended to me by my parents. My husband and I got an excellent deal for our money. I read the review criticizing the breakdown in air conditioning, elevator use, etc. service. We were also in Rome when the extended heatwave made it necessary to ration electricity use, and therefore, also suffered the inconvenience of breaks in service of these conveniences. I understood that 5 star hotels also suffered the same fate, so it does not seem fair to blame this on Casa Howard. This is a very elegant guest house, not a hotel, in the heart of Rome, reasonably priced, with comfortable beds and limited, but very helpful, staff. I have and will continue to, recommend it to all my friends who want to stay in the heart of Rome.

      Elegant, reasonable b and b

      from

      I had two stopovers in Rome this summer and spent the first in Casa Howard, Capo le Case and the second at Casa Howard, via Sistina. They are both beautifully appointed, staffed by willing and pleasant personnel, centrally located, reasonable and comfortable. Rome municipality limited the use of airconditioners on our second visit which made it rather warm part of the day. However, this was not limited to Casa Howard and even the most expensive hotels suffered the same fate, and it was only a temporary measure. I can certainly highly recommend both these bed and breakfasts and intend to use them again myself whenever I go to Rome. Brenda Kimmel

      Avoid Casa Howard.

      from

      What a disappointment. Many things in the Via Sistina property did not work properly or at all - the elevator, the air conditioning, the cable television, the lighting and the shower. Don't expect anything to be fixed during your stay. The high level of service that they purport to provide in their website reader's comments was nonexistent. They were a source of misinformation that took away from the vacation. You must keep their well insulated windows closed as the street traffic is extremely noisy day and night. The management's arrogance is to deny that any complaints are valid and explain their that the deficiencies are due to the building's age and that Rome is very expensive. This is one place to avoid in Rome at any price.

      ...great MISREPRESENTATION.

      from

      This property is a great MISREPRESENTATION. It is a dump and a disgrace!!! The "private jacuzzi bath" was a gross open shower & toilet accross the hallway. The bed spread was stained and the noise from the street was overwhelming. The entrance to ...is an overgrown, spooky and run-down, messy yard. It was horrible and we asked to be moved to something else. Without hesitation the desk clerk from the actual hotel moved us to other Hotel in area.

      Dissatisfied traveler

      from

      In June 2003 my wife and I stayed at the Casa Howard on Via Sistina. We

      chose this hotel based on the Frommer guide and magazine

      recommendations. We were led to expect a "warm reception" from the

      owners and a "helpful staff which can arrange anything."

      During a stay of three days we met no one except the house boy. We stayed in a room that had a toilet which did not refill for several hours. A pair of new walking shoes was accidentally left behind and when we e-mailed Casa Howard on arrival back in the US we were informed that the shoes were thrown away by the houseboy.

      Our experience may not be typical but we found the service quite casual and inadequate.

      Wonderful Casa Howard!

      from

      All the warmth of staying in a guest house is reflected in the high degree of personalized customer service one will receive at Casa Howard. (A second Casa Howard, run by the same couple, is now open in Rome on via Sistina.)

      The guest is king or queen, and every wish and desire is fulfilled, whether it be a limo meeting you at the airport, or arrangements for a papal audience! Jenifer Howard Forneris, a British ex-patriate, now married to an Italian count, spoke of the difference between a guest house and a B&B by telling us in a guest house the family does not live on the premises. Although the atmosphere is small and intimate, the rooms most assuredly are not!

      The location, near the Spanish Steps, is second to none, and the Spagna Metro is about a block away, for treks to the Vatican or San Giovanni Laterno. Casa Howard will definitely ensure that you have a "buon viaggio"!

      We are now just finishing up a couple of glasses of white wine (Grillo Voigner) and have booked a night in Bracciano in a lovely (we hope) apartment just outside of the Medieval town with views across the lake. We only have one night there, but it will be a change from a hectic Rome. Anyone who can drive a car in Rome deserves a medal. They are all bl**dy crazy.

Another instance was walking through an archeological excavation of a roman home and admiring the mosaics in their homes. Another thing I found interesting was instances of ancient people appreciating history. Such as learning about how archeologists were puzzled about how a sculpture from around the birth of christ was found in a 300ad roman home. Or how it ...

      ... deal to see, except for its sheer size, and we waited patiently for the hop on hop off bus. Patience was needed as Roman traffic can make bus timetables an rough estimate at best. When it arrived we were in for a long trip to Venezia Piazza via the Vatican. Still we haven't spent any time in that part of the city and it was a pleasant meander along the Tiber River.

      First stop after our stop, so to speak, was a lunch spot.

      First day out

      Today I feel that I have truly started my adventure in Rome. I arrived yesterday to fiumicino around 14:00 but didn't actually get to my apartment until 16:00. My apartment is adorable, I share it with another girl from Madison named Sarah. I had a hard time figuring out how to unlock the door, our keys are straight and you turn them in a way that manually opens the lock so you have to twist many times. Walking in the door you will see a small kitchen and dining area ...
