We went to Italy on our honeymoon. For the Rome portion of our trip, we wanted to stay somewhere in the top 5 hotels to make sure we would have an enjoyable experience. I searched Trip Advisor, Hotels.com, Expedia.come, etc. and Deko kept coming up in the top 5 or top 10 on all of them. All guests didn't have anything bad to say. I'm usually the guy to balance affordability and value for our money. There were up to 5 negative reviews but they seemed a little bogus. I noted a what some of these complaints were and while we were there, I realized they really were bogus. For example, someone complained about the air conditioning not working and they complained at the front desk but it was never addressed. BOGUS! The description did not even match hotel layout or how anything worked. Beware of some bogus one-off reviews....
Hotel Deko was by far the best choice we made, hands down. It's a smaller hotel with 6-7 rooms and you don't get lost with the other guests. The rooms were great---we even got upgraded to the suite for free because it was our honeymoon! Marco or Serena are always around and are on point. They have reservations at a few different restaurants held in case you want to go out, and those restaurants are top notch! We even went our of our way to come back to Rome on our leg out of Italy to go back to Osteria de Pegno! They also took the time to talk to us about what to see, what not to see, gave us a map with all locations and times to visit--for bars, restaurants, sights, etc. Since we tried to avoid our cell phone usage because of international charges ($1.20/min), Marco and Serena set up some other reservations for us, too. They even helped us out with some of the taxis, as alot of the drivers will take advantage of you when they shouldn't (trying to charge per bag or extra people in the cab.) Heck, Marco even arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport to take us to Deko! That saved us $30, (or 20-25 Euro).
We walked all over Rome and this was a great place to start the day. Deko had a sizeable breakfast every monring---pastries, cereal, coffee, meats, cheeses, etc.
The hotel is in a great location---not too far from Borghese park, several blocks from the hustle and bustle of the busy areas, a block from a taxi line, yet quiet enough to get great sleep at night. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Yes, all hotels in Rome are expensive, but at Deko it actually feels like you are getting what you pay for--and you never feel like you overpaid.
