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...

This luxury hotel's location could not get any better. Next to the Duomo and walking distance to most of the famous attractions. Service was excellent especially Pina at the breakfast restaurant. Food selection for breakfast was great. Good fruit selection, they make eggs the way you want it, pastries were delicious, cheeses and cold cuts were plentiful. The only one... More

Palazzo Gattini is at the top of an escarpment and has amazing views on both sides. The rooms are beautifully appointed - modern with a 'nod to Matera's history' and everything has been carefully thought through. The location is fantastic - right in the middle of old Matera, so very easy to get to all excursions. The service was exceptional... More

Our stay at the Palazzo Gattini was really memorable. It is not easy to find a hotel which lives the slogan "luxury hotel"! Not only is the design and the furniture luxury, also the service is more than personal and luxury! We were the only guests at the hotel, which did not belong to the wedding group, the reason why...

This hotel is in a converted Palace. It is probably the most prime location in all of Matera. It is located in the Piazza Duomo. As soon as you walk out of the hotel you can gaze at the remarkable Sassi. A very short walk and you're in the center of town at the Piazza Vittorio. The rooms are beautifully... More
