  • Another great night at Angiola's! It was wonderful to stay at Angiola's cheerly, local, convenient location and then at the end of our European adventures in Southern Italy, to be able to return. Angiola even offered to keep a bag at her house while I went on my excursion with a lighter load. I met other interesting travelers at her place as well and we shared tips. Angiola is great with insights and directions. She is an excellent host.
    Thank you for making our stay in Rome so lovely! Your rooms are just as pictured, clean, charming and delightful! Breakfast was wonderful and fresh. Security was great. I always felt safe and secure!

  • Location, location, location!!! My husband & I were so very lucky to have found these charming, private accommodations. For a full month in Rome we had the best of all possible worlds. Angela's apt. is in a lovely safe quiet residential neighborhood, but with metro and bus lines 1 minute walk from her door. On the way we could smell the blooming flowers everywhere. We were in the heart of Rome ( almost every day) within 15 minutes. Our room was lovely and breezy with a very large, comfortable (real) bed. The bath was modern with a large tub and shower! Angela is a gracious hostess who truly enjoys her guests. Breakfast was fresh and on the table every morning waiting for us. She has a wealth of information on traveling in and about Rome and Italy and a wonderful and useful collection of books at your disposal. While you can have as much privacy as you want, however,we interacted with other guests which added so much to our overall experience, several of whom we will remain in touch with. We plan to return next year!

  • We stayed for 4 nights in Angiola's room A. She has a lovely apartment that is a few metro stops away from the main station in Rome (about 15 min away). She rents out all 3 rooms, but it is absolutely a wonderful visiting experience! (Meeting and conversing with other travelers and Angiola!).

    The room was clean and a great size. The bed was very comfortable and the private bathroom was extremely convenient and spacious! Every morning there was a simple, but very filling breakfast that was very nicely laid out for us. It definitely helped to get us started for the day!

    As some reviewers said before - the locks are a bit tricky. But you really just need to be patient and they work perfectly! It is comforting that she lives in a well gated apartment complex, we had no worries about safety what so ever! We were also able to lock our individual rooms, which gave us more peace of mind as well!

    We loved staying here. Even though the apartment is not walking distance to the center city - the metro stop is about 5 minutes away (10 if you have luggage) and makes traveling to and from the major sights (or anywhere accessible by metro or train) extremely convenient. Angiola is very welcoming and was extremely helpful in providing suggestions of what to do and where to go! She truly opens up her home to her guests and creates a wonderful BnB experience.

    I would definitely recommend staying with Angiola if you are visiting Rome. It is perfect for 2 people! She knows a lot about the city and is so friendly and open and willing to help her guests in any way that she can! Staying here will make your trip very comfortable as it is safe, cozy and informative!

  • My family and I had a wonderful stay in Angiola's lovely flat in Rome. It is well located in a quiet and safe neighborhood north of the city centre and easily accessible by one of the metro lines. The night we arrived, Angiola was kind enough to walk to the metro station to greet us and help us find the way to her flat. We stayed in Room A, which was more than adequate for three people. We had our own private bathroom with a very nice bathtub-shower combination. Continental-style breakfasts were on our own, but Angiola provided a great variety of items for our use. Breakfast was also a great time to get to know some of her other guests. We had some wonderful conversations with Angiola during our stay, about Rome, about art, about many things. She was most generous with her time and offered us countless hints on how best to make use of the limited time we had for visiting Rome. When we return to Rome, we will plan our visit on the basis of availability at Angiola's place.

  • Angiola was extremely accommodating and helpful. The nearest metro station is a 5 minute walk from her place. I highly recommend her!

  • We had a great time at Angiola's room! Everything was clean and perfect as we expected. We stayed 7 days , and Angiola was very kind and friendly with us.
    By metro or bus it's easy to visit Rome, the house is near both. Also there are excellent restaurants and "pizzas" in the neighborhood.
    We highly recommend staying with Angiola!!

    April 2014
  • Angiola is very welcoming and charming and her apartment is located in an area where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of Rome and enjoy relative peace and quiet at night-time in your bedroom. Angiola had to go away for a couple of days whilst we were there, but her sister and house help looked after us well in her absence.
    The tube into Rome is very easy and takes only a few minutes, so it is possible to go into the city to eat in the evening as well as daytime excursions, as long as you do not want to stay out until the early hours. There are also some good local places to eat (the best we found is called Boulanger) and many shops nearby.
    I was rather over-ambitious at booking a 16 year old into the same room as his parents and it is my fault that our room seemed a little cramped at times. Angiola was understandably concerned when she saw the size of the third person as the additional bed is only for smaller children.
    Otherwise the room is clean and comfortable with a similar bathroom next door. The breakfast of coffee, tea, juice, yoghurt fruit, cereal and home-made jam is also fine.

  • Angiolas home felt like our second home. She helped us when we needed advice and local knowledge but was not intrusive on our privacy. Her home cooked meal was a lovely touch and gave us a chance to know more about life in rome as well as the other guests. My pasta making skills have improved although not quite up to angiolas standard yet. We would recommend staying here, all was clean and tidy, water hot and good location.

    March 2014
  • Exactly what I was expecting. Bed was comfortable and our host very friendly and informative. 5 mins from the metro. Great value for money. Next time I go to Rome I will stay here again.

    February 2014
  • Angiola's home was a restful, welcoming base for our few days in Roma. It is situated in one of the inner suburbs of Roma, accessible to all places via the Metro and buses. At the end of a day of exploring, amidst other tourists, it was perfect to get away and feel like we were returning home.
    Angiola knows and loves her city and we felt privileged to be in her home, in her company, learning from her insights about life in Roma and things of interest and beauty. She was quickly aware of our interests and helped us get there.
    She picked us up from the Metro on our arrival - that was very generous. She helped us find a great film we went to see and gave us lots of information about what was available - also very generous. She gave us her time for interesting conversations and exchanges. When we really needed to eat a home-cooked dinner, she encouraged us to use the kitchen.
    Our heart-felt appreciation for all that you gave us.
    Jackie and Hazel

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 (email hidden) 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.
