Place was exactly as advertised. Very quiet in the mountains with a tremendous view of the city. Downt own was only a $6-8 uber ride but its easily walkable if you dont mind walking about a mile. The Wi-Fi did not reach the room and the shower was small, but the bed was incredibly comfortable. Would definitely stay again.

My Staub at Norm's was great. I came for a work trip and my local colleagues were so jealous of the view. The space is large and worked but great for making inexpensive meals. I also found the location convenient and only used a car on one day of my trip. The Mercado is less than a mile walk and has a nice coffee shop, various eateries, and shops. You have to have a raspado! There are cockroaches, but I didn't find it unbearable or gross. As others have said, the wifi only works outside.

1. No WiFi at all in Unit A We were told WiFi is weak in the unit, but it was nonexistent. He told us to go outside and stand under the other unit. 2. Bed was comfortable but sheets didn't fit 3. Great location 4. Relatively clean 5. Sent the text to the host to ask where the coffeemaker was. Though we found the item we were looking for, we have never heard back from him. 6. The smallest shower stall in the world, but clean (don't drop the soap).

Can't beat Norm's place for views of and access to downtown Tucson, its easy access to the Desert Museum and Saguaro Nat. Park - and, of course, the price. A very comfortable bed and basic everything else. Within 30 minutes of showing Norm a faulty shower system, he arrived with a new one for the very petite shower. We appreciated having the laundry room just a few feet away. The large shaded east-side patio provided a great place to relax after a busy day of exploring Tucson and surrounding area.

Norm is a great host, good communication & friendly. The studio has everything for a comfortable stay. The shower is on the small side & wifi is available from outside the unit. Very nice views & close to town.
