Beautiful hotel in a wonderful historic city
What an amazing place! This hotel is located on a cliff overlooking the ravine that bisects the historic town. The views are spectacular and it is convenient to many good restaurants. The staff is excellent and very helpful. A very good breakfast is served in a cave restaurant/bar above the hotel. Matera is worth a long visit; there is so much to see and do. We loved staying here!

Situated in the old town of Matera, and unique to stay in a "cave room". The property has been renovated very tastefully and the highlight is the property patio and bistro (Crialoss) is perfectly located overlooking the old town. The menu of the bistro is excellent and so are the drinks! The owners, Vita, Antonella, and Giuseppe are very attentive and take the opportunity to ensure all guests are enjoying their stay. Antonella and her staff assisted with reservations to recommended restaurants and all were very enjoyable. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend to stay at this property!

Incredible View and Experience
Absolutely incredible experience - my receptionist called ahead to make sure I was not lost before check-in ended in the evening, offered complimentary water upon my arrival and helped fill out a map of areas to tour and visit. Room was incredibly unique, extremely comfortable and featured an incredible view! Definitely intend on returning in the future.

Exceeded Expectations.
This was a very nice stay with wonderful views of the Sassi. The breakfast was great (continental) with the breads and bakery goods made that morning. The owner (current and former resident of the Sassi) and the staff did everything to make the stay exceptional. While parking was off site (10 min drive from hotel) it was very well organized - shuttle was there for you when you got to the parking - parking was indoors and the shuttle was there for you when you were ready to return to you vehicle. Door to door - no stops to pick up others on the way.

8/10 Very Good

Very good place to stay if you visit Matera
Have to spend 40euros extra to parked our car but that's nothing to do with the hotel. The cave room we stayed was a bit of a novelty with a fantastic view of The Sassi, staff was very good & helpful, spend a lot of time to explained the place. Breakfast was an event arrived in a carrier bag, it got everything in it. Fantastic place & you won't disappointed with the hotel & Matera.
