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

First the amazing: location, the views and the re- creation of Roman baths with therme. Look at the pictures and note, their beauty is not a marketer's exaggeration. The breakfast, with barista drawn coffees, would hold most person through to dinner. My room was well beyond my expectations with views of matera, churches and wandering tourists. Okay, so far, five... More

Finding the hotel(spa) is the trick. We we with a tour group so that helped.Definitely the most unusual room I've ever stayed in. Just about all the rooms are caves. The hair dryer I had in my room was the only problem. It kept coming off the wall therefore shutting it off. Breakfast was very good with a large selection.... More

We stayed 2 nights at 'Locanda di San Martino' located right in the Matera center, called 'Sassi'. It's built in a typical Matera white stone, the rooms are simple with a comfortable bed and a big bathroom with bathtub and massage. We were positively surprised by the breakfast, again set up in a white stone room and with all the... More

Matera is an incredible place to visit and this hotel makes it more special -it is a beautifully appointed hotel in the Sassi. We stayed 2 nights which allowed us up to the Piazza each evening ( and if you are there on 2nd July you can enjoy the feast of the Madonna della Bruna ) and a nap in... More

We stayed in Matera one night to break up a long drive and we were so happy we did! Hotel was easy to find with google maps and the hotel parked out car for a small fee. The room (7) was very very comfortable for a small family and included a in-room spa bath. We took a late afternoon drive... More

Not easy to get to but once there everything was excellent. Angela on reception was very good and nothing was too much trouble. Very special pool and well worth the extra 10 euros. We will stay again next year.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Locanda di San Martino lies in the heart of Matera’s Sassi Historical District, and at the same time it is conveniently located at a very short distance (100 meters) from the city center. The Locanda radiates outward from the deconsecrated church of San Martino and the street of the same name, through a series of balconies that enjoy a sunny exposure and a wonderful view of the Sasso Barisano. There are twenty-two guest rooms situated on four levels, renovated with the greatest care in order to respect their original forms as single homes. ... more   less
