We slept very comfortably in a grotto of this ancient city. Their resteraunt was very close to our room and was also a grotto. Nearby was the largest underground church. In fact nearly all the old city is in grottos and has prehistory origins. The fronts appear normal but the rest is underground. Many people would recognise bits of it... More

Sleeping in a Sassi (a cave house in the old slums of Matera - now sanitized, picturesque and visitor friendly) sounds great and we're glad we did it, but be prepared for a humid night. The dehumidifier did its best but caves are damp places. The room was pretty well equipped although the shower head fixing was broken. However, unusually... More

We stayed 2 nights and in the end we loved this stay. Our experience was a little different to others though. When we arrived we found parking to be a real issue. Unlike other reviewers, there was no opportunity to park nearby and the staff were unable to help with alternatives (their English, while better than our Italian was not... More

The positives: the setting with a magnificient view over Matera, peggy the dog, the building of the residence - very beautiful typical Matera sassi building. The negatives: humidity, humidity, humidity, wet sheets, very unconfortable beds, dirty and humid carpets, stench due to humidity, average breakfast. Experience not to be repeated. Caught a cold in the process. To be honest i... More

I stayed in Matera for 2 nights at Residence San Pietro Barisano. There are over a hundred B&Bs to choose from, so I was overwhelmed during my research. But I am SO glad I stayed here. For me the most important things about staying in a B&B are 1) location 2) people (owners) 3) comfort of the rooms. 1) The... More

We stayed one night in that unique place. We had a very big cave (room) which was a bit cold but very spacious, including a kitchen . The only problem we met was that it was very hard to find the place and the parking

If you are lloking for a good quiet place with a great view and a good price then you need to come to this place. We stayed here for 3 nights and had no complains. The only things you need to consider is that the rooms are carved out on the hillside thus a bit humid. However a dehumidifier (... More

My friends and I visited Matera now, in February 2013, and stayed only 1 night. We had dinner and slept at San Pietro Barisano residence, and were totally amazed by it! The rooms are actually furnished caves in the mountain, super romantic (for couples) and super special (for everybody). Everything very clean, very neat, no complaints whatsoever. We even had...

The room was beautiful until we had to sleep in it. Our sheets and blankets were damp, and the room was too hot. I asked the owner to turn the air conditioning on. He came into the room picking up pillows and throwing the crib mattress back into the crib. While he was doing this he was yelling and cursing... More

We read rave reviews before finally choosing this place, however the moment we got there the nightmare started! After finding the correct parking lot, which was missmarked, we made our way to the hotel, careful to avoid all the dog crap along the way. At check-in management could not articulate to us what documentation was required, as they need to... More
