It is hard to know where to begin as there are so many fantastic things to say about Deko Rome. The best part is the people – Marco and Serena are the most amazing hosts! They are warm and incredibly helpful and make the Roman experience something really special. We were there last week (Feb 2012) for four nights and enjoyed every single moment. Marco had arranged a taxi pick up from the airport for us and, upon arrival, he greeted us with a smile and a glass of wine! He proceeded to go through a map of Rome with us, in detail, not simply highlighting the tourist attractions (which we did want to visit) but specific streets and areas of interest. He also gave us lots of information about restaurants and bars and either he or Serena would ask us each day where we would like to eat that night and make a reservation. All the restaurants were amazing, serving truly Roman food. We even went to a small bakery in Campo di Fiori one afternoon (Forno) just because Marco had recommended it.
Each day, when we returned from our sightseeing, Marco would welcome us with a glass of wine or Prosecco and ask us about our day. He and Serena are passionate about their city and about what they do and they genuinely want to make your stay as personal and enjoyable as it can be.
Deko Rome is in a great location. There is a taxi rank two minutes walk away, the metro (Barberini) is about 10 minutes walk, and very handy for getting to the further sites, such as the Colosseum and Vatican. There are some excellent restaurants close by (top tip – take Marco and Serena’s advice regarding where to eat!) and we walked almost everywhere, day and night. Our room was contemporary and stylish and immaculately clean. And nice and quiet at night, although we would usually return late after several glasses of wine and Amaretto!
A number of other visitors have mentioned the details that make Deko Rome stand out – free WiFi, free mini bar, plentiful continental breakfast (served 8-11am, although they are completely flexible!). If you are looking for a large corporate hotel with a spa, pool, concierge and anonymous service, then Deko Rome is not for you. If you want to experience genuine, warm Roman hospitality which will ensure you experience the best of Rome, then you will not find anywhere better than Deko Rome! Grazie mille Marco and Serena! We will return one day!
