Rome between art and nature: room B

Apartment - Private room · Via Casperia, Rome, Lazio 00199, Italy

12 MINUTES FROM THE COLOSSEUM! IT IS GREAT TO BE ALREADY IN THE HISTORIC CENTER, WHILE YOU ARE STILL SURROUNDED BY THE SEVERAL PARKS OF A LOVELY, RELAXING RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD, IN A COMFORTABLE, COZY HOUSE, WHERE YOU ARE WELCOMED AS A FRIEND.

The Space

In the elegant area where I live, you can enjoy different aspects of Rome in the same time: terrific ancient monuments, beautiful parks all around, and shopping roads: you can choose according to your mood and your needs. You can spend hours to discover nearby hidden amazing spots and feel living emotions, which will not abandon you, walking in the pure, serene air of the neighborhood. When you come back, thrilled and exhausted, you will find the warm, cozy atmosphere of my home, where every object has a past, while I'm enthusiastically open to the future and to my guests, let’s say my likely new friends, coming from so far away bringing with them the richness of their different cultures and their personal experiences. In return of this, I'M GLAD TO OFFER YOU THE CONFORT OF A HOTEL, THE WARMTH OF A HOME!

In my large apartment I have 3 sunny, quiet, large, breezy and comfortable rooms for my guests:

- the room A, with a private bathroom. It's a double room, that comfortably fits 2, but I can put an additional single bed if you need it.
- the room B, the largest one, with a double bed, plus a single one. The room has a eat-in balcony, where, if weather allows, you can enjoy the breakfast or a romantic dinner. You will share a large bathroom plus a smaller one.
- the room C, which is smaller but comfortable, bright and quiet.

The room rates are different so I suggest you to watch ALL MY LISTINGS.

Have a dinner together will help us to know each other better.

Interaction with Guests

I am a single woman, I live alone and I work as a screenwriter and movie-director. I have a modern stile of life and am used to share apartments since a long time. I met some of my dearest friends as guests in my house. I welcome my guests amicably and I enjoy if they feel at home

Being a professional screenwriter, I usually work at home. However it can happen that I leave Rome for short periods for business meetings. In this case, my sister Maria Pia will welcome you. She will live in my house and will take care of you. She speaks just a basic English, but she is very kind and caring. Anyway I will be always in touch with you if you like or need it.

When I am at home, I am at your disposal if you need useful info or if you have to solve small domestic problems.

I was also a Art History teacher and I have a touristic guide license, so, please, feel free to ask if you need help in planning your city tours, or in discovering the most secret Roman spots.

As I told you already, I'll be glad to have a dinner together and let you know some secrets of Italian cooking.

In the same time, you can be sure that I will always respect your privacy.

The Neighborhood

In the immediate neighborhood of my home you can visit Villa Ada, which is a huge, splendid park, and great monuments as the medieval church of Sant’Agnese, the Mausoleum of Costanza and the catacombs of Priscilla, with rare examples of ancient Roman paintings. To the guests who will stay for at least a week, I will offer A FREE GUIDED TOUR to these marvelous sites.

Excellent restaurants, pizzerias, pubs, cafes, cinemas, are waiting for you in the evening, at a walking distance. If you like to cook in my kitchen, you can find, nearby, many supermarkets, a huge fresh food market and many other grocery shops.

  • Angiola is the perfect host for a trip to Rome. She´s really nice, friendly, openminded and helps you with every question you have. The room was wonderful with a balcony and it takes you only 10 minutes to Colosseum by metro. For us, it was the perfect place to stay during our holidays. We got a nice breakfast every morning, everything was clean and nice and we felt like home in Angiolas house.
    We would recommend this place for everybody, who would like to have a relaxing time to stay.

  • Angiola was a great host during our trip to Rome. We turned up earlier than expected with no way of contacting her and she was very accommodating. She made us espresso and showed us a good route to take around Rome. We weren't around the apartment very much because we only had two days. It helped to come back to a warm, comfortable room and bed each night. Room was clean and spacious and had a nice little balcony where we enjoyed a drink our last night.

    April 2014
  • very adorable stay. the house is warm and the transportation is quite convenient . Very near to the metro. Angiola is very nice and gave us suggestion for more place to see. Thx , Angiola, when we come to Rome next time,we would certainly try to see you again!

    April 2014
  • WE REALLY THOUGHT THIS PLACE WAS A BED AND BREAKFAST. THE EXPERIENCE SHARING THE APARTMENT WITH THE OWNER'S FAMILY MEMBER WAS TERRIBLE. A LOT OF SCREAMING, WE DID NOT KNOW WHAT WAS REALLY HAPPENING.

  • I certainly enjoyed my stay with Angiola Janigro, and spent a very pleasant two weeks in her flat. The room was large and light, and the bed comfortable. The area in which the flat is situated is a bit outside the very centre of Rome, but has excellent public transport links by bus and by metro, which means that one can easily and quite quickly get to the main tourist areas. Angiola was a welcoming and thoughtful hostess/landlady, and very helpful in providing information about how to get around in Rome and indeed on other matters as well. Breakfast was provided and was perfectly adequate. I could have used the kitchen to cook for myself, but chose not to avail myself of this opportunity. I would certainly recommend this accommodation to anyone who wishes to spend some time in Rome and does not wish or need to stay directly in the heart of the tourist area.

    March 2014
  • I was meant to go on this trip with my boyfriend, but he sadly had to cancel last minute because of his job. A little nervous about traveling to Italy alone, Angiola made me feel extra welcomed and was very helpful! She's just such a warm, lovely person and the room I stayed in was so perfect. I had my own balcony, and a great wooden desk that I wish I could've bought from her to take back to England.
    Angiola went above and beyond being helpful with giving me suggestions where to go, what to see, and even made breakfast for me each morning.
    Will be staying with her when I return to Rome - hopefully not alone next time! :)

  • Posto tranquillo in una zona tranquilla a poochi passi dal centro. Ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo. Consigliato!

    February 2014
  • We had a great time at Angela's and she made us feel very welcome. Stayed in a large room, got a big breakfast every morning and it was easy to have interesting conversations with Angela, who speaks perfect English. Next time in Rome we hope she has a room available for us again!

    February 2014
  • This room is big and full of light. I was alone,but easily 3 people can live there. You will have keys from all the doors,so can lock your room. Bathroom (which you share with Angola and her brother) is very modern. Every morning Angola serve breakfast: flakes,yogurt, bread,milk,jams, coffee and tea. You can have breakfast with other people or ask to have it on the balcony more private. Angiola was always very friendly and kind, if she isn't at home her brother will help you.
    This is very nice area , with lots of shops near. From house to metro station is about 3-4 minutes. But be careful with train destinations when you come back. Near the metro there are also bus stops.
    I was glad to spent a week in such a calm atmosphere.

    January 2014
  • we had a very nice time together with angiola in her beautyful house.
    she's a nice, kind and patient host, and the room we stayed is a comfortable location in a large apartment with everything we needed, included a very nice breakfast, and it remains in a good location, near metro and bus stop. higly reccomended.

About
I am a single woman who works as a scriptwriter and movie director. I also have been for years an Art History teacher in public high schools. Recently I’ve got a tourist guide licence too, so I can help guests to discover the Roman most secret beauties. Memories are important to me but my mind and my eyes are focused on our world's future, and I suppose that's why I seem... or at least I feel... younger than I am. I am used to share apartments since I was young, being very respectful of people living with me and doing my best to let them feel at home. I have to say that a lovely way of travelling to me is to meet people coming from different countries and different cultures… while I'm resting on my own divan! Because I'm quite afraid to fly but I do love differences.
