I as many before read the TA comments before I left for Rome. I also read the information on their website http://www.dekorome.com
Why some are complaining confuses me, Marco has clearly stated that Deko Rome is a guest house.
If you wish for warm company, nice clean attractive rooms, and VERY helpful staff Deko Rome excels. Nothing was too much trouble for Serena or Marco, they are both superb hosts that try extra hard to make your stay enjoyable.
If your looking for a large bar area, or restaurant within the facilities you will need a Hotel... This is a Grade A guest house, with lovely people. Its unusual, its different, in a positive way
Location is great short walk to.
Trevi Fountian ( walk)
Spanish Steps (walk.. close to Trevi)
Vatican ( tube.. metro 4 euros)
Coliseum (taxi 7 euros)
Palatino (NEXT to Colisuem )..
Borghese Gardens (very close walk)
Also quite handy a SPAR supermarket TWO doors away.. very useful for last minute supplies.
Fav Resraurant... SAN MARCO ... close walk also Harrys Bar
Best restaurant street :-
Via Vittorio Veneto (close walk)
We also went to Leonardo Shopping Centre on last day (V Close to airport) NICE shopping centre.
Food is pretty good everywhere, we had one poor meal, that was probably just a one off bad night.
The room we had was excellent, spacious and clean NUM 6
As a guest house, not many negatives, Marco and Serena do their best for you, its all about what you want, this is not a Hotel, its more like staying with friends, you can come and go as you please, and breakfast is very flexible time wise, as long as you go prepared to act under your own Initiative you will love this place.
If like myself you are unfit, I would recommend walking TO your chosen attraction, as most are downhill, and get a Taxi back ... approx 7-10 euros from most places. To walk back to Deko from Colisuem is pretty tough after a long days sight seeing..
Trust Serena and Marco.. they know the area well, and will book tickets for attractions and Restaurants..
What Would I Change ?
Personally I would like to see SKY UK or USA satellite, nearly all TV is Italian dubbed, its not important , but would help enhance the stay a little more.
Would I got back ?
Yes I would, and I have already recommended Deko to some friends, I prefer the no nonsense approach of Marco, you get exactly what you would expect.. great hosts, lovely room, good location. Whatever you ask for you will get.. JUST ASK !!
