The staff were very friendly, courteous and always available to help. The rooms are beautifully arranged, spacious and impeccable. Located just next to the Duomo and a few steps away from the Sassi. We came with three young children which the staff doted over. We came in August and found the price quality ratio excellent.

The hotel is excellent; very tasteful furnished. The Director at the front desk and all his staff were very friendly,competent and gave a lot of excellent recommendations. The staff in the breakfast room was very friendly and the variety of food offering was just great. Overall, we felt very welcome and comfortable.

The Location, Rooms, Viewpoint at Terrace was great ! The Hotel Staff was very friendly. Everything was SUPER ! 到 Matera 來的朋友一定要來體驗一下, 每個房間的設計各有特色, 整個旅館如同博物館般, 離主要的景點又近, 價位也合理, 服務人員非常專業及熱情 (有會說中文的帥個喔 !), 下次來還會再選擇它的!

This beautifully renovated and decorated former palace is outstanding in every way. It has a wonderful location overlooking the sassi ravine and just across from the town's primary cathedral (closed for restoration). The city center is just a scenic 5 minute stroll. Staff are welcoming, gracious and unfailingly helpful. The rooms are gorgeous, comfortable and very generously sized. Breakfast is... More

First class service in a first class hotel. The rooms are as luxurious as you would expect. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We ate in the adjoining restaurant and had a most pleasant meal with very attentive service. The food was first class.

Great hotel in the city center of Matera. Nice big room and great bathroom. Very friendly staff. Breakfast was served in the -1 floor, a little inefficient as the buffet was subdivided in several parts of the cellar. The waitress however was extremely friendly and made us feel at home. One minor thing: the airconditioning in our room could only... More

The Palazzo Gattini sits off a small courtyard with a large church (is there any other kind in Italy) at one edge and a low wall on another that gives a view out over the stunning houses cut into the cliff/cave walls. The hotel's modest entrance gives way to a large atrium and a warm welcome and the service there... More

This is one special hotel with just 20 rooms in a former palace previously owned and lived in by Count Gattini who was a former mayor of Matera. Guests are provided with a wonderful informative booklet on the hotel situated right opposite the Duomo in the historic centre. Our beautifully appointed room was massive - separate bedroom with very comfortable... More

This was a very pleasant surprise and what a excellent hotel. Everything was 1st class. Staff. Rooms & restaurant. I would recommend to anyone who wants a unique stay. The staff arranged a tour of area with a local professor then put us in touch wth a taxi for trip to a nearby town.
