“Perfect accomodation for your City Break in Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

This has to be one of the very nicest places to stay in Rome. It's small, quiet and very friendly, and for my wife and I met all of our needs for a 4 day city break.

We were met on arrival by Marco who promptly offered us a glass of Prosecco, whilst discussing good places to go in Rome, and good restaurants in which to eat. We took up some of his recommendations, and we had some really memorable dinners in small restaurants, in the historic back streets of Rome, which we would never have found without his recommendation. There are also some excellent restaurants within a few minutes walk of the hotel. Marco is a fount of knowledge about Rome, and is very happy to help you find your way around, and of course will book restaurants and taxis for you.

Marco and his partner Serena own and run this small hotel. They are a very friendly and helpful couple, with excellent English (I expect other languages also). The hotel is spotlessly clean, and furnished in a very modern style. Our room was of a good size for a city centre hotel, very comfortable, with a great bathroom. The provided free WifI and iPad make it easy to keep in touch with friends and family, as well as looking up details of the places you want to see, opening times etc.

Breakfast is continental style with something for all tastes, sweet and savoury, and is normally served between 8 and 11 (or later if you wish !). Serena was our host at breakfast, which can be readily adapted to suit your particular taste, and of course the quality is excellent.

The hotel location is very close (10/15 minutes stroll) to the famous Borghese Gallery and Museum, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. We also walked to most of the other sites, for example taking about 45 minutes to the Colliseum, and only used the Metro to get to the Vatican. You see much more of the real Rome if you walk, but make sure you have sensible shoes, as the cobbles can be uneven and a little treacherous. If you don't want to walk, taxis are plentiful, and quite reasonable (€10/15 anywhere in central Rome) and the integrated Metro/Bus system is also very straightforward, and only €1.50 a trip, less if you buy a pass.

We really cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, it makes such a pleasant change from the larger (and more expensive !) hotels, that just cannot compete with the friendly and personal attention you will receive from Marco and Serena.

My wife and I were on our first trip to Italy recently. We used Trip Advisor to locate a B & B in Rome. It is hard to know what to believe in a review or see with pictures and such how good (or bad) a property can be. Our research brought us upon Deko Rome at 1 Via Toscana very near to the US Embassy. From the start of our reservation process to the moment we left Rome, our hosts Marco and Serena were BEYOND COMPARE! The room was exquisite! The service impeccable! The delightful breakfasts and cappuccinos were amazing! I have never had such a diverse selection of breakfasts form a B & B. Americans can be too used to bacon and eggs and this you will not find at Deko Rome but the fruit, breads, cereals, yogurt, jams and toast and on and on were wonderfully arranged on your plate every morning.

Marco and Serena are the loveliest couple and both worked very hard to make our stay exquisite. The room (we had the two room suite) was modern and efficient not to mention extremely spacious. Well decorated and chocked full of amenities. It was cleaned each day while we were sightseeing which was wonderful.This is not your typical B & B folks...It's fantastic! I could go on about their hospitality, the food, the location, the room but I don't think I need to say more than this. Do not go to Rome without staying at Deko Rome. I know I might not get a reservation next time because it will be booked but I don't care. I will make my next trip to Rome based around the availability of the rooms at Deko Rome! Love you tons Marco and Serena! Thanks! Kris and Derrick

We stayed at the Deko after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. This is a perfect location for tourists, safe and with easy access to the city. You are greeted by the charming Marco and offered wine, a city map and useful advice for your stay. He organized dinners, taxis and whatever else you need - this place feels like home. The actual room is so modern and clean, with water provided. The breakfast was amazing, lots of fresh fruit, cereal and meats and cheese so yummy. The bed was very comfortable. Overall a great place to stay to explore the city and a home away from home. We recommend you take the transport organsie by Marco it would not be easy to find by yourself. This place only has six rooms which is a part of its charm. There is a supermarket downstairs if you need anything else.

Deko Rome is a very cool little boutique hotel located in a very safe neighbourhood (the American Embassy is across the street, and a police station is two doors down). It is in a beautiful old building on the 2nd floor. Everything is new and modern and the rooms are fairly large and the bathrooms are beautiful, clean and fully appointed. Marco and Serena are wonderful hosts and gracious to help you with any of your needs, from booking tours to meeting you at the end of the day with a lovely glass of wine and a chat about your day. Now, one tip, when you book your room, try to NOT get Room #1. It's a gorgeous room, but is close to the main desk, and you can hear everything - first thing in the morning the breakfasts being put together, to late at night when other guests are coming in from nights of happy times in Rome, so if you you are a light sleeper, this room is not for you. That was my only downside to this little gem.

Never have I visited a hotel and felt so at home. The rooms were perfectly quaint and sufficient, having everything I would look for in a small apartment. It was clean, and the bed, bathroom and shower were modern and perfectly sized.

But the thing that separates Deko Rome with any other hotel is the personal attention given by the owners Marco and Serena. As others have written, once we got there, Marco gave us a map and showed us all of his recommendations, which included attractions, but most importantly really fantastic restaurants.

Breakfast was plentiful and delicious and was the time we got to chat with Serena about life. She also was also very helpful with setting up reservations to museums for us. In the evening, we would look forward to chatting and drinking some wine with Marco. These two felt more like friends than hotel owners. And what's amazing is that they are great at what they do, going the extra mile, making sure you have everything you need. My wife and I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough.

Thanks for everything Marco and Serena! Hope to see you again soon. -Eugene and Annie

We were completely impressed with this boutique hotel. Even though we booked a 'small double' room, we were pleasantly surprised to find a comfortable sized room ( not small by European standards!)
It was modern and well equipped. We were sorry to be staying only 2 nights!
Both Marco and Serena were excellent hosts, and made us feel like we were staying with family- nothing was too much trouble. They gave us heaps of information and some EXCELLENT dining suggestions! Their breakfast and extras such as a glass of wine at the end of a big sightseeing day, and free minibar drinks were very generous and appreciated! Seriously, you will not be disappointed if you book to stay here!!!

Deko Rome is the most wonderful little hotel I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. Marco and Serena are so welcoming and full of useful information. I have shared with many friends the positive experience we had there. The hotel is in the BEST and SAFEST location in the old city. Other hotels in the Via Veneta are priced at least twice what we paid and would not have had the wonderful owners that clearly enjoy what they do. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Our room had an Apple I PAD , flat screen TV and the most wonderful modern bathroom. I hope to get there again soon !!
