This is a wonderful B&B located in the Sassi area of Matera. Beautifully clean, friendly service and we'll located to stroll around the tourist sites and restaurants.we didn't try the thermal baths as the weather was very hit, perhaps next time. The pool look very inviting and it is scrupulously clean. Breakfast was a good variety and plentiful to please... More

We had 2 nights at this hotel and were allocated room number 4 (cistern room). The rooms air conditioner was not up to the job of even cooling let alone removing the very high humidity from the room probably created by the cistern below. This was a hole in the floor covered by a sheet of glass for viewing -... More

Not so much a hotel as a village climbing up the hillside close to the centre of Matera. The 33 rooms are restorations of tiny cave houses on four levels with the alleyways and stairs joining them. Each room is therefore different but with very good facilities. Some have lovely views over the town and some don't. The main breakfast... More

Well worth €20 each as we were not residents of the hotel. Sauna, steam, solarium were good, the pool was excellent and atmospheric, but my fav was the hydra pool! Bliss! If you visit Matera and fancy a break from the heat, then make sure you seek out this little gem!

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
