This hotel has been built in the middle is the sassi area in Matera. The quality of rooms is very good. Position is great - but extremely difficult to find with a car..and access at the moment is also very tricky due to road closures. You need to take the privaqte parking option offered. Breakfast was disappointing - for a... More

We stayed two nights here as part of a tour and enjoyed it very much. Located in the Sassi (cave house) part of town. The rooms extend over four levels and are all renovated ancient homes, these having a history going back for thousands of years. As a result, there is quite a variation in how each room is appointed.... More

This remarkable city takes you by surprise. Right in the heart of everything is Hotel Locanda di San Martino. Your room is an above ground cave with all of the modern amenities necessary for comfort, but it is, remarkably, a cave! It's sensational. We loved staying there and recommend it to all who pass through the fantastic stone city of... More

Locando Di San Martino provides an interesting choice for those who want to experience the character of the Sassi without giving up creature comforts. The hotel is built into the caves of the gorge in a central location in the old city. It has good access to the modern plaza area, although expect to encounter lots of steps when traversing... More

I stayed here in February. Weather was cold and rainy, however the personnel were so friendly and polite the weather didn't bother me. The room was very nice. A single room with a great view from the door's window when opened. The bath, compact but clean. Location is perfect in the middle of the Caves in Matera. Most sites are... More

This hotel is well located in the old part of Matera with very comfortable rooms and a spa/sauna /pool complex. If you have a car, it will have to be parked elsewhere, but the hotel staff will arrange that, and it is a short walk from where you have to stop your car to the hotel.

It took us nearly an hour to find the place. Suggest you find out exactly where it is before you go. I knew the street and house number but my brand new Navi system did not recognize the house number. You cannot drive to it and parking spots are extremely rare and the streets rather narrow. So we were not... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in January. The weather outside was cold and damp, but we were warm and cozy inside. In fact, our room was a little too warm the first night, and we asked them to turn off the towel warmer in the bath room! We had a quad room, and it was spotlessly clean,... More

A fabulous hotel experience! We loved staying in this cave hotel! I can't imagine we will ever have the opportunity to stay again in a cave, never mind one that is so well appointed. Our cave slept 4 and had outside windows and a door to the terrace. The private bathroom was spacious. Great wifi. Beautifully presented breakfast buffet, European... More
