Our first room (33) had a damp mustiness to it. Well, we are staying in a cave, we thought. On investigation it turns out not all cave rooms are damp, so if you find a de-humidifier in your room you might like to ask for a move (They moved us the next day); My tip to the hotel - take... More

Cool place. We got the room under the street, when others on our tour got view rooms. Hmmmmph. The hot pool is lovely but expensive and you have to wear.a.swim cap. Ugh. The sassy is interesting but quite gentrified.

This is a great hotel, very comfortable and with a thermal pool- 10 euros to use it- and a fantastic breakfast spread. Unusual to have a full scale thermal pool underneath the hotel! The rooms are carved out of the rock, matera, sassi style so that's a bonus too, gives a feel for living as the past inhabitants did. So... More

Also they went out of their way to acomadate our motorbikes which were parked outside but were safe ! This is a must on any trip... More

We stayed for three nights at the Locanda di San Martino, and loved every minute of it. The hotel was easy to find, even though it is located in the old Sassi. after we checked in we drove the rental car back down the road and around the corner to a free car park, where it sat for the duration...

The transition from "not knowing what to expect inside" upon arrival to the WOW! factor as soon as you open the front door is a true experience. Most rooms are located in caves, with most of those only accessible from the outside after climbing stone steps and walking along cobbled paths between terraces. The stay is rounded up by visiting...

This hotel is amazing. Set in a cave, the rooms are clean and comfortable. They are not damp but are minimally furnished. The rooms because of their stone walls and arches alone are worth experiencing. Under the hotel is the thermae- a very enjoyable experience and a relief from the harsh environment with its stone and lack of vegetation which... More

Driving into the Sassi of Matera is completely breathtaking and a bit overwhelming to say the very least. When we pulled up to our hotel, Locanda di San Martino we were stunned by its perfect location and then our wonderful room for the 4 of us. It was incredibly comfortable, clean, and situated right in the middle of everything. The... More

Couldn't really find fault with this hotel. The rooms are caves and approached from the outside via a higgeldy piggeldy labyrinth of paths and steps. Beautifully and simply furnished. There is a mini baths under the hotel which is fun. The staff were charming. Highly recommend it.

My title refers to my first impression of Matera...a city of stone unlike any I have ever seen. Having arrived on a rather dreary May evening and hiking up stars and down before finally getting to our hotel made it a welcome sight. The whole place, the setting and the hotel comes with many challenges and just as many rewards.... More
