My husband had never been to Matera and I had only visited once briefly so we added it to our grand tour of Southern Italy. Frankly Matera is totally amazing and utterly fascinating but our superb stay was totalky enhanced by this wonderful hotel. Finding it was a mission as our Sat Nav has a small freak out and we...

Even the staff on the front desk acknowledged that their website is untrue. There is no restaurant, and few other services. In no sense is this a luxury hotel, and it is vastly overpriced with very little to offer.

Dear Mr. Charles Young, sorry but we didn't understand your review. We spoke about Don Matteo Restaurant during our conversation in the hotel. Don Matteo is the restaurant where you did have the dinner last night and you like it, so your review is inexplicable for us. Please explain what led you to write this review.

Beautiful hotel. Very luxurious! We were offered a free upgrade to a junior suite which was fantastic and had an amazing bath. The staff were very friendly, location was perfect and breakfast very nice with a good selection of food.

Great location on the highest spot of the old city. A restored palace opposite to the Duomo. Spacious rooms. Excellent breakfast buffet. Every effort was made by the staff to make our stay more enjoyable.

Whenever I have stayed in Matera, I have usually stayed in cave hotels, which used to be the dwelling places of Matera's poor. This stay in Palazzo Gattini was an experience, instead, of where the aristocracy lived. The hotel is situated in the luxury residence of one of Matera's former ruling families. Although not everything has been preserved, many of... More

This hotel presents a bit of a problem for me as the building itself is lovely—the architecture, the high ceilings and the location are all magnificent. In fact, the whole experience of living at the top of an ancient city is pretty amazing. The problem is that it appears very little care was taken when furnishing the guest rooms (at... More

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.

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.
