LAST BUT NOT LEAST: I have confidence in my guests' good manners. So far, experience has given me reason.
Angiola is an amazing host. She was willing to let us check in at 23:30 at night as we got in late at the train station. When we arrived even later than that she was very gracious and hospitable. Her rooms are uniquely themed and the mattresses are extremely comfortable. The private bathroom seemed like a hotel and had useful amenities such as shampoo and body wash. The free breakfast the next morning was a fantastic start to the day.
Angiola is so nice! I should arrive at Rome at 2pm on my schedule. But Rome airport was closed, so I needed to change flight to Milan first, then took airplane's bus to Rome airport...When I arrived at Angiola's house, it was 3am the next day. She was still waiting for me...impressive. The room is spacious and cozy, I really want to stay longer. Hope to see Angiola again.
Angiola is a very nice host written everything clearly so you can find the flat easily. And she would pick you up at the metro station show you how to open all the doors which is very sweet. The location is good if you want away from the noise of sights centre. But don't worry about the traffic because metro station is just 5 mins walking away and Roma is not a big city.
La stanza è pulita, la casa graziosa e raffinata, strategica la posizione perchè realmente di facile accessibilità anche a chi non è un buon camminatore, grazie alla metro molto vicina, ma il vero valore aggiunto è la padrona di casa: deliziosa, gentile, disponibile e discreta, qualità che se dettate dal cuore, come nel caso della signora Angiola, rendono il soggiorno una visita serena e l'impatto col viaggio diventa meno brusco. Questa è stata la prima volta che provavo questa metodologia di sistemazione e l'ho "rischiata" nella forma più delicata, mandandoci i miei genitori 70 enni: e tutto è stato di loro gradimento, anzi ha dato loro modo di credere nella loro indipendenza e ridimensionare la paura del viaggio-non-organizzato-in-chiassose-comitive, rivalutando il viaggio dettato dal ritmo del singolo. Consiglio a chi vuole vedere Roma questa sistemazione perchè è di rara qualità, sia per il prezzo che per il rapporto umano dove la discrezione è il prezioso strumento cui la padrona di casa fa sentire a proprio agio i suoi ospiti.
grazie Signora Anjola per la disponibilità e la sua gentilezza. Figli permettendo, spero di poter conoscerla di persona e beneficiare pure io della sua ospitalità attraverso questo geniale strumento che è il circuito airbnb. le auguro una buona e felice primavera. laura
Loved staying at Angiola's, the room is very clean, quite and in a good condition. Angiola is a perfect host, very helpful and knows a lot about Rome. She was very helpful when I got lost. The apartment has a good location, close to the metro and city center.
We had a nice stay at Angiola's place. Flat is very nice and clean, very close to metro and bus station. Angiola is nice and welcoming host.
We enjoyed our stay at Angiola's, it was a short walk to the metro and about 15 minutes into the city. While Angiola was out of town, her sister and friend were able to provide a lot of assistance.
The bed was really comfortable and the room nice and sunny. We were even able to do our laundry which was great after being on the road for a bit.

About the Host, Angiola
I am a single woman who works as a scriptwriter and movie director. I shot my movies in the North Europe, so I can speak English. 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.
