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.

The location within the Sassi Barisano was perfect. Very walkable to the piazza above as well as the sights below. The fact that you could drive up and unload bags and valet park if you choose was a great help. Breakfast was well done and the "cave rooms" were great... Lots of charm. We loved the Thermae, it was a... More

The staff was wonderful!! I loved the pool and terme on the bottom, the cave like rooms are unique...and breakfast was a wonderful addition...live piano and all! Easy to get to and in the middle of the sassi. I will stay here the next time I come and recommend it to anyone. 5 star hotel in my opinion!

My first impression of this hotel was not very good. There were no windows and my room was dark and definitely cave-like. However, after I found all of the light switches and discovered the door had wooden panels that opened to let in the light and even opened to let in fresh air, I felt much better about it. The...

We arrived at the locanda on Saturday June 28th around noon. We were expected and the room was already available. The B&B is lovely. We first left the car on a parking spot and got our luggage later on. The beds, bathroom and other facilities are very taken care off. As we are Belgians, we love a good breakfast. Well,... More

I would definitely go back here. We had a large loft room built into a cave. Everything was updated/remodeled and very well done (jetted tub, large bathroom etc). The room was not damp and had a pleasant and fresh smell. The bed was surprisingly comfortable and huge. The grotto pool/spa is very unique. Great views of the sassi both night... More

Hotel staff was very nice and accommodating! A little hard to fine but, just phone them and they'll give you the correct directions from your location. The Termael baths are a nice touch, if you have the time. The breakfast wasn't bad and the rooms are very nice.

Sleeping in a cave, swimming in a cave and breakfasting in a cave - really the only way to do Matera! The room was lovely and spacious with a great view and lovely little outside space. The spa was gorgeous and super relaxing - swimming through the cave setting felt very cool - but it does cost an extra 10... More

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
