Arriving by taxi - i was glad the driver could have the converstion on the phone with the hotel - as to how to get there. You have to have permission to park in the square outside St Peters church - and this is required as this area is at the end of a long slope. Once there we were... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was a really good experience. The views from outside the rooms are amazing. We slept very well in the "cave". It also has tea / coffee on the room. You can also sit outside the room in the afternoon and relax. The staff are very helpful. The only thing to note is... More

This was a superb place to stay in this uniquely wonderful city. You are in the heart of the old Sassi, in your own cave hotel, with grotto churches and empty caves only metres away, and on the edge of the spectacular drop into the Torrente, with the archaeological park on the other side. The rooms are spacious and clean,... More

We have just returned from visiting Matera for 3 days and staying at the Basiliani Hotel. The town itself is one of the most extraordinary places we have ever visited and is one of the oldest continually inhabited places in the world. A number of the hotels in the Sassi (ancient part of town) are built into the old caves... More

Nothing prepares you for the wonder of The Sassi of Matera, seriously nothing. And the Basiliani Hotel is the absolutely perfect place from which to explore it. This hotel exudes charm. Really, staying in a cave!!!! How cool is that? Mind you, it's a very nice cave, with full facilities, TV, refrigerator and more. You can walk everywhere from here... More

We loved Matera and chose the perfect place to stay. The Basiliani Hotel was great! Very hip, modern feel. Minimalist white. Cool furniture that lights up! Our room was HUGE and had incredible views from two windows. But most of all, we were grateful for all the help from the hotel's proprietor, Giuseppe. He was friendly and attentive and even... More

We stayed here in early May. Matera is stunning. There is so much to see and do. Fascinating history. Go now before it is the 2019 European City of Culture as it is sure to change. It took us a while to settle in to the hotel as it is very modern, built into a rock cave and so different... More

Words cannot describe this amazing town. So pleased to come before it gets overrun by tourists. Hotel Basiliani is in converted caves on edge of gorge with spectacular views. Simple modern , minimalist furnishings but with great style. Guisippe " rescued" us and our luggage from the nearby piazza with a lovely smile and strong arms to carry our suitcases... More

Matera was the highlight of the trip and hotel Basiliani was a great value. Giuseppe has built a sophisticated hotel that will surely meet your needs. Clean, spacious rooms, good internet, great views, and delicious breakfast.
