The hotel is just next to the cathedral and it is convenient to wander around Matera and admire the view. You can also admire the view of Sassi from the hotel's garden terrace. The room is spacious, clean and comfortable. Wifi works perfectly (not working in some hotels even if they advertise 'free wifi') The staffs are very friendly especially... More

Luxurious rooms and a fantastic hilltop setting. For a 5 star hotel though, the service is a bit lacking. We wanted a drink in the bar and had to find someone to serve us. Breakfast is in another building, but it's all part of the experience. I loved our room and bathroom. Spacious, modern facilities and beautiful decor. If I... More

Dear Wirral, thanks to share your opinion with Tripadvisor Friends. We're happy to read your satisfaction. Palazzo Gattini is very big and the building have many little spaces so sometimes It's possible that barmans are serving in an another space. We apologize if you have received an average service. Breakfast is served in same building and you have to taste... More

Rooms, meals, cafe, service - all 5 stars. I don't have a single complaint! I used their laundry service, which was excellent. Used their inside/outside cafe for business meetings - great service and excellent view. There breakfasts were phenomenal. And their staff couldn't have been nicer. Would definitely stay there again. They have a spa but I didn't have time... More

This palazzo has been beautifully restored and the accommodation is luxuriously comfortable. Location is great though the cathedral opposite was scaffolds and closed. Breakfast was excellent, as were the staff. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for one night at the start of a cycling holiday. Everything about the hotel was excellent. We had a beautiful room that was very comfortable and well equipped. The breakfast was extremely good too and the staff very helpful. Although in a very central location the hotel was tucked away enough to escape the crowds. We would... More

The refurbishment of the old palace is excellent. The staff at reception were very helpful. The one drawback of the hotel is that access by car could be challenging without satnav or a good map but it's really worth the effort to get there!

Lovely and well renovated hotel. Tasteful design that enhances the original architecture. Very good ac and very comfortable bed with quality bedding. The only negatives are the very low lighting which is not adequate for reading and the geometric bath that does not configure to the body. The bath is also the shower and the sides of the tub are...

Matera is an exeptional place and Palazzo Gattini is following the pattern. As it should be in the historic and full of stories place, the staff, the room, the dinner are amazing. We joined the main square evening party and we felt strong belongings.

We recently spent two nights at Palazzo Gattini and enjoyed our stay for the most part. We were upgraded to a gorgeous suite overlooking the Duomo and thought nothing could be more perfect. Then it was time to retire for the evening. The suite they had upgraded us to was bi-level with the sleeping accommodations upstairs and it was incredibly... More

My wife and I were really looking forward to staying at this hotel. We looked at past reviews and thought that this was the place for us. What particularly drew us to this hotel was the fact that we were driving nearly 200 km to get there and the hotel had a restaurant with excellent food. We didn't want to... More

Dear Geoff M, I'm really sorry to read that we were not able to fully meet your expectations. The Don Matteo restaurant has only 35 seats. For this reason we advise you to book in advance the table. In the case of non-availability of Don Matteo Restaurant, we recommend the room service or denote one of the three restaurants, our... More
