Unique place to stay. We chose to stay here because we had stayed at the sister hotel in Matera last year and were very impressed. The rooms are atmospheric and very clean. We would echo others comments regarding the fact that the beds and pillows are very hard. There is nowhere to sit in the rooms nor is there a... More

We attended a wedding in Santo Stefano Di Sessanio in September and were booked into an ancient medieval room with a lounge downstairs and the bedroom upstairs. The place is exquisite and well preserved and really takes one back in time. The village itself has a limited choice of restuarants but that in no way dimishes the wonderful experience. There...

On the plus side, the Sextantio Albergo Diffuso is doing great things for the village of Santo Stefano, one of the most beautiful in Italy. It is also very stylish. But it is rather poor value for money; rooms are dark and can be uncomfortable; bathrooms are not well equipped; and (when we were there) the restaurant (one of only... More

We went to Sextantio Albergo Diffuso for a friend's wedding, and WOW. This place is unlike anywhere I've ever stayed before. It's a bit of a trek to get there, but it is totally worth it. The hotel has restored rooms all over the little village and each one is different with tons of character. The stone rooms with candles... More

I am writing this review in the hope that management or the owners are sensitive to our tripadvisor community, and at the same time prepare any future guests for this unique experience. This hotel, or rather collection of scattered rooms, is designed with philosophy of preserving the ancient experience of medieval Italy. The rooms have no TV, no fridge, no... More

Quite shocked by the negative reviews here. This hotel is a completely unique experience. The rooms are stunning and the attention to historical conservation astounding. Wonderful food in the atmospheric restaurant. Walking around this painstakingly preserved hill village is a delight.

I booked and stayed for 1 night, fortunately only one night, at this Hotel. My opinion is that this hotel should be closed like hotel 4stars and converted like a simply B&B with low and right price becouse it lacks the minimum standards of comfort and quality amenities that you expect from this 4**** and furthermore the huge price paid...

The hilltop village is almost fully restored and is one of the most picturesque places I have been to. It's quaint, quiet and beautiful. I wouldn't miss the chance to visit this special place if you want to escape the hustle and bustle.

My husband's great grandparents are from Santo Stefano di Sessanio and we wanted to check out the village during our honeymoon. We stayed at Sextantio Albergo Diffuso for one night and it was really unique. If you can deal with simplicity in a beautiful part of Italy then definitely check out this place. We enjoyed the large bathtub after a... More
