Beautiful hotel in a spectacular location. The attention to service and cleanliness was second to none. Great breakfast which included a healthy selection of fresh fruits served in a most unique dining area. Huge comfortable "cave" rooms meticulously maintained overlooking the canyon the sassi is built in. Matera is a very interesting city with a wonderfully vibrant atmosphere at night.... More

This lovely, ultramodern hotel, built into the caves of Matera's amazing Sassi Caveoso area, was one of the highlights of our recent month in Europe. The rooms are large -- huge, in fact. The owner is hands-on and extremely service oriented. The location is wonderful. Several excellent restaurants are nearby. We simply can't say enough good things about this place.... More

PERFECT!! We got lost trying to find the hotel due to road closures but the hotel owner came to pick us up and we followed his van to the square, then walked to Basiliani. Words can't describe how amazing the hotel & Matera are. Stunning views, a feeling of being immersed in hundreds, even thousands, of years of human history,... More

We had a fine, 2-night stay with our 2 teens at the Hotel Basiliani. Our 2-story suite was impeccably clean and furnished in a modern fashion. Beds were comfortable and shower was great. Breakfast was served in the main building and was above average, buffet-style with specialty coffees made to order by very attentive staff. Best of all was the... More

If you wish to image how the people of Matera lived throughout their 10,000 year history, this is the place. Basiliani Hotel is a cluster of independent rooms, half of which are built in rock. Our room was expertly designed and included all modern amenities for comfortable living. Although the traveler cannot drive up to the front door, this was... More

The location is Perfect to visit the historic places, as soon you open the door you have the cave houses (sassi cavernoso) right in Front, amazing. The negativ point is that is an area redtricted for cars, so you have to park in an area nearby. But by the other side the staff (Giuseppe was very kind and explained everything... More

We had 1 night at this hotel, and would happily have stayed longer if time had of permitted. The room was large, comfy, immaculately clean and has stunning view Staff were very welcoming and breakfast was scrumptious. Matera is gorgeous, parking interesting in the old part of town near the hotel. Amazing town and perfect hotel to enjoy it from.

We spent a night in one of the cave rooms of the Basiliani - and had one of the soundest sleeps on our trip! The hotel is on the edge if the canyon and in the oldest area of sassis ( cave dwellings). It was totally silent at night. The staff are extremely helpful - picking us and our luggage... More
