Staying in a cave is certainly an experience. We found it very well appointed and all facilities were good. Wifi was surprisingly very good. I wouldn't want to stay for more than one or two nights as, obviously, the rooms have very little natural light. We had to keep the shutters on the doors closed at most times as people... More

Well appointed room in renovated caves. The thermal caves are worth experiencing. The manager and staff are very helpful. Breakfast terrific and plenty of it. Well located and at night the views are stunning

Very clean, modern hotel with lovely breakfasts and great location. There is a small elevator, but be prepared for stairs. All of Matera is up and down! You descend 40 or 50 stairs to drop from a "new town" plaza into the alleys of the old town. The vibe is fascinating. Our most unique hotel ever.

Central location with great views of old town Matera. Comfortable bed and good shower in a cave like room. Breakfast was good and we particularly enjoyed the pianist in the breakfast room! The swimming pool and thermal spa which look stunning both in pictures and real life really were a wow, however, to charge ten euros to use those facilities... More

We stayed here for two nights. Great location in the old part of Matera, we had stunning views in the morning from the terrace. The underground swimming pool and spa was amazing to look at as well as offering a relaxing and tranquil experience. Breakfast is a cold buffet severed whilst listening the music which is played by a pianist.... More

This hotel exceeded my expectations. Fashioned into the limestone caves, the rooms tumbled down the cliff. Our room and the public rooms were spotlessly clean and decorated in keeping with the location. Would recommend Room 15 - high up on the cliff and with its own very private balcony with views over Sassi. A relaxing hour in the thermal pool... More

This is an exceptional hotel for the price. Extensive breakfast with pots of real coffee, excellent service from room requests to town information, they really try to do everything to please. We would rate it a five except for the air conditioning in Room 16 was inadequate, and opening doors and windows just brought in mosquitoes, so we had sweaty... More

This is an amazing experience. I was a bit leary of staying in a cave, but I am glad I gathered my courage. It is beautiful, and terraces and windows and wonderfully creative lighting disspell any misgivings. The Roman spa, with its multiple water temperature pools, of course in a cave, is not to be missed. Make sure you take... More

Just wonderful We had a junior suite which was very big and comfortable with chairs on a shared terrace overlooking the Sassi (shame the cathedral is covered in scaffolding at the moment but otherwise the Sassi is absolutely stunning!) We went to the Thermae for a swim in the amazing pool in the caves (plus sauna, steam room, jacuzzi). An... More
