    Very Good8.0
    Great location with nice views
    Pros- great location to see sassi, loved the professional Music studio that filled the area with sounds of musical instruments, great view from our window, staff helpful about giving directions when they were there, nice courtyard with view to enjoy a drink, room had a sofa bed with a bit firmer mattress that I was able to use. Cons- really soft bed that sagged a bit in middle and made sleeping uncomfortable and difficult. Don't stay here if you need a firm mattress, breakfast was typical Italian breakfast with yogurt, pastries, fruit and protein offered, staff wasn't always available to get assistance.

    Stay a night or two in a real cave.
    Unique, central location with very friendly and accomodating staff. Parking not available. Access to hotel requires a bit of a walk in the old city up and down stone stairways and through stone alleyways. Fun, but don't try to carry much and you'll be unable to roll your roller bags.

    La Corte Vetere is in the heart of old Matera which is magnificent. It is impossible to get to by car so we were met in the main square and escorted - we would never have found it ourselves! But this was part of the magic, the labyrinth of ancient streets is quite extraordinary. We had been allocated a double room and needed a twin room so the owner quickly offered us a suite at no extra charge. This was in a cave dug into the rock but beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Breakfast was ample and served on a small terrace with a view over the town. For anyone with mobility problems Matera would be very challenging as the streets twist and turn with lots of steps and polished stones but for anyone else it’s a very special place not to be missed. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and this was a great start to our holiday in southern Italy.
