A warm, friendly and inviting bed & breakfast at very reasonable prices. Our room was clean, comfortable and a good size, with a separate (private) bathroom - also clean and a good size. Very good breakfasts which Norma will lay out whenever you require (within reason !) - in our case, various times between 7:30 and 10:00.
The location is definitely residential and a little out of the centre - but ideal for us as we were visiting relatives. We travelled using public transport - the property is 5 minutes walk from the Quattro Venti stop on the FR3 rail line and is also convenient for bus numbers 75 & 44. In terms of sightseeing, it's easy to walk up Gianicolo hill from the property, and from there into the old part of Trastevere. Sites in the centre of Rome can be easily reached via public transport (this was our 3rd trip to Rome so we'd already seen the central sites, but this time wanted to explore more of the old part of Trastevere).
An unexpected illness (absolutely nothing to do with Normarobby) during our stay meant that we had quite a worrying 24 hour period but Norma & Robby were kind enough to call a doctor who gave me a thorough check-over and reassured me that I was fit to fly. This personal concern from Norma & Robby made a big difference to what otherwise would have been a difficult situation. Even if our trip had been illness-free, we'd definitely stay here again.
