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

Teresa gave us one of the warmest welcomes ever! Beforehand she arranged transport from Bari for us and sent a lovely email. Our room was huge with a massive bath. Free internet works perfectly. The staff couldnt do enough to make us feel at home. Pina, at breakfast went out of her way to oblige. We booked for 5 nights... 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.

Very professional and corteous service, amazing location to visit Matera. Terrace on Sasso Caveoso with stunning view. Built in an old aristochratic palace by the Duomo. Quality at 360 degrees, and prices right for what they deliver. I would come back.

Fantastic four night stay during New Year's week!!! As many reviewers have already mentioned, the service at this immaculate hotel was excellent! We had a room on the top floor which had a great view of the Sassi just beyond the cathedral. -and like a cathedral, the magnificent brick ceiling in our room must've been 25 feet high! Elegant furnishings... More

You won't find it easily if you don't know exactly where it is, but once there you'll immediately appreciate the warm atmosphere of an exceptional - but quite invisible - location. Steps, stairs, painted vaults are perfectly merged with contemporary design. No excess but class. Every detail is clearly under control, inside rooms as in public areas. Our double (212)... More

For the English-speaking traveler who knows little Italian, I know it can be useful to know if you'll be communicating with hand signals when you travel. The front desk staff here all had some English--from very proficient to just enough to get by (but certainly better than my Italian) so communication was never a problem. Now, that out of the...
