Matera at its Best
We loved this little hotel built into a cave. Domenico went out of his way for us. The staff is pleasant and even though there’s not much English we got along beautifully. I would highly recommend this small, beautiful place. The bathroom was fabulous and the sheets gorgeous. Matera is a very special place. The hotel is well located, as you have to navigate by foot. There is private parking for a small fee as guest cars are not allowed to park. We enjoyed our five nights there immensely..

A fantastic stay!
The location and views were amazing. We received a very detailed over view of the city map at check in, which was very helpful. It was recommended that we start with seeing Casa Noha to put the city's history into context, and I highly recommend doing this. I had researched parking garages before our trip and foundAutoservizi Damasco which appeared to be closest to the hotel. This turned out to be great decision for two reasons - GPS took us directly there so we weren't driving around the city looking for a space, and they were super helpful, even driving us to the hotel, although only about a 10 to 15 minute walk from the garage. No need for a car once in Matera, we only used for day trips. Breakfast was wonderful as well, I miss my daily cappuccino. Highly recommend for a great location, friendly staff, and unique accommodations.

Amazing room and bathroom
Wonderful sassi type place with high ceilings a wonderful bed and outrageous bathroom that looked like a spa. I would highly recommend and am surprised the price was not triple the rate. The breakfasts were good too. Location was great and they were more than helpful in helping me find a spot to park my car.
