As this was my 7th stay here in two years, I'm running out of things to say! Let's just say that the fact that it was my 7th stay, says it all really!
Peter W. Couples Ireland, October 10, 2014
too expensive for what is offered

Good location, some friendly and extremely helpful staff, good food
7.7
We paid over $615 US for 3 nights. No toiletries in the room at this rate is incredible. The suite was a huge disappointment, brown painted concrete floors, old style furnishings which wasn't to our taste and smelly drainage in the bathroom and noise every morning from the building site next door starting between 7.30 AM and 8, we checked in the first day at 4 to be met with the noise of a huge drill on the wall of the bedroom after some time we complained and it was stopped but the hammering continued, and the same drilling and hammering for each of the 3 mornings of our stay. The Assistant GM did as much as he could to try to have the noise stopped but alas no joy, on our last evening he provide us with a free meal which was absolutely delicious but then charged for the juice and water??? Most of the Staff here are extremely friendly and helpful buts it's certainly not 5 star, apart from a pool no other facilities on offer I can't help but wonder were we in a different place to all the others with the strangely magnificent reviews, can Agoda reviews be trusted

My stay was nice and comfort at Deco on 44. The hotel's F&B is much nicer than other restaurants in town. Location is superb - it's within the fort and everything is within walking distance.

Unique Art Deco Home Hotel

confortable, good food, friendly employees
7.7
We never get tired of returning to Deco 44. It is a pleasant small 7 rooms’ boutique villa of which we enjoy the Art Deco architecture and its friendly employees. We particularly appreciate to be recognised by the staff every time we return. The food is tasty, we recommend the local freshly fished grilled king prawns served with a garlic butter sauce. Rooms are large, clean and comfortable. Deco 44 is a perfect place to stay, after hours of wandering, discovering gemstones, art galleries and art & craft boutiques of the fort.
