Eclectic boutique style near the Spanish Steps
Think country-house meets ethnic meets modern-retro. There’s the zany Zebra room, all black and white on red; the White room’s extravaganza in toile de Jouy; the rustling silks of the Chinese room.

Good to know
Casa Howard is a guest house, so don't expect porters or a fancy lobby. Breakfast (if ordered) is brought to your room.
A total of ten rooms in two twin guesthouses at Via Capo le Case and Via Sistina.
Rooms are all individually decorated: think country-house meets ethnic meets modern retro. Smart bathrooms come with mint and pomegranate soaps. The Chinese room in Via Capo le Case has a four poster bed and access to a private hammam.
We liked the monochrome palette of the White room, the plush fabrics of the Pink room and the soft apple shades of the Green room.
Eat & Drink
Only breakfast is served, though in keeping with its home-away-from-home style, Casa Howard operates a trust policy and there is always a fully stocked fridge for you to raid. Nibble now, and pay on check-out.
Breakfast (charged at EUR 10) is brought to your room until 10am. Expect freshly squeezed orange juice, pastries and home-made preserves.
There's no room service as such, but the housekeepers will bring you breakfast and the fridge is left well stocked.
See & Do
Where to begin in the Eternal City? There is the well preserved Roman Forum (actually there are three) with the entirely preserved Roman senate house, temple of Vesta and ancient law courts. There’s the Flavian amphitheatre (better known as the Colosseum), countless monuments and statues, museums, galleries and churches. The crowds may be sardine-like but you really should visit the Vatican too. And if you throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain, you'll ensure your return to Rome.
The Good Friday procession re-enacts the Stations of the Cross in a torchlit procession from Via Crucis past the Colosseum up to Monte Palatino.
Estate Romana is a summer-long festival with music ranging from classics to rock, plus cinema, theatre and sport.
