Unlike some of the negative reviews posted here, I had an excellent stay alle Monacelle. I stayed in the dormitory, and lucky for me, I was the only one in the entire 18 bed dorm.

I booked a two night stay at this hotel as part of a two week holiday. Once we were already in Italy, I realised we needed to change the booking. I emailed the hotel to enquire. It being the low season (October) I didn't think there would be a big problem. I included my Italian mobile number, and asked that... More

Sleeping in one of its guests rooms, where once the cloistered nuns and the noblewomen in spiritual retreat lived, is a very unique experience! Infact it was a convent once! You breath an utter tranquility within its old stone walls, on the ground floor there is a little church..but the magic begins the moment you enter the terraces on the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Le Monacelle offers a unique housing experience thanks to the atmosphere that fills the place with beautiful contemplation. The rooms of our guest, once occupied by the cloistered nuns and the noblewomen during their spiritual retreat, are simple, elegant and plugged into the magic silence of the Sassi and the Murgia highland of the town of Matera. ... more   less
